This opportunity arose from our on-going conversations with Asda and their need for a rapid response to a Covid-19. With a shortage in “home delivery” slots & an inability to bring a platform to market in 14 days without distressing their in-house home delivery supply chain, Asda decided to launch a Foodbox platform powered by StarStock Group’s SaaS product.
What we did to help
We pulled together a very quick lightweight requirements document & scope of works & presented it to Asda. We agreed to move forward & we then built them a platform which was able to take 10,000 simultaneous orders. We used our lightweight integration middleware which enabled us to process orders & fire this into a Asda’s complex ERP system.
We delivered an incredibly fast & reliable platform for the world’s largest supermarket chain (at the time Walmart) in 14 days from concept.
