Successful platform migration

With around 4,260 branches, Netto Marken-Discount is one of the leading food discounters in Germany. Its online presence is likewise convincing: netto-online.de constantly keeps an eye on the needs of its customers and knows how to dynamically adapt the online platform to changing market requirements. Thanks to its excellent user-friendliness and extensive product range, the shop is described as a convenient “alternative to Amazon” and, according to Computer Bild, ranks among the top shops in 2019.

The Netto online shop was migrated from Oxid PHP to the Intershop platform in a record time of just three months.

The challenge
  • Conceptual design and realization of a complete technology change including integration of all relevant interfaces
  • Roll-out of an individualized brand experience across all touchpoints
  • Time pressure in implementing the new Intershop platform
The result
  • Migration from Oxid PHP to Intershop 7 for enhanced scalability, performance and security
  • Stable and on-schedule go-live after only three months thanks to agile project management and MVP (minimal viable product) approach
  • Relevant product recommendations increase cross- and upselling potentials
  • Close integration with logistics providers for a smooth shipping strategy
  • Click & Collect offers additional service for pick-up and returns
"With its platform migration, Netto achieves several goals at once: The new technology stack based on the Intershop Commerce Platform combines the previously separate shops. Moreover, the solution offers enhanced scalability, performance, and security, and allows Netto to easily expand its offering with contemporary services. In this respect, what has already been achieved is a major step forward for the company, especially in view of the time pressure involved in implementing the new platform".
