B2B online shop relaunch

We completely rebuilt the online shop for a restaurant supplies wholesaler on the basis of the Hybris Commerce Accelerator, migrating existing data from the old system. This both eradicated technical debt and laid the foundations for a significant increase in non-food products. We supported this extension by adapting the various backend systems to the requirements of a very heterogeneous product range. The new online shop features completely reworked user experience with responsive design and navigation optimized for the product range, as well as improved maintenance of editorial content.
