Modern Customer Portal for eCommerce provider
Relaunch and migration of an eCommerce shop
We fully integrated an acquired eCommerce store into an existing Hybris shop system, migrating the complete customer account data, including addresses and vouchers. The goal: to allow expansion of the international customer base. The migration was performed without any need for downtime in the target shop, with the fully automated Hybris import running on multiple servers. By migrating the password-encoding algorithm, the migration was also transparent for customers. CMS content and individual icon sprites allow the new integrated shop to be individually branded.
