Very Group collaborates with Commercetools to “transform ecommerce platform”

The Very Group has partnered with Commercetools to “transform the technology” behind its ecommerce platform and “significantly improve customer experience.”

The online retailer said the move is one of the first in a series of investments in technology and talent that Very will make in 2022, “to create the best possible conditions to further improve its digital customer experience”.

It added that the collaboration with Commercetools “is a major step forward in Very’s strategy to modernise its tech stack” towards a microservices-based, API-first, cloud-native, and headless architecture (MACH).

From this month, Very will begin transferring each stage of the customer journey from its current digital commerce platform over to Commercetools.

Each migration phase will introduce improvements, “which will give customers a more contemporary, consistent and accessible design, built using the retailer’s new design system”.
