Online as well as offline: Bringing familas identity to the Internet

A customer-friendly and regionally appealing shopping atmosphere is part of the famila stores' brand image. It is clear that the website of famila Nordwest must also correspond to this image. The task was therefore to create a user-centric website that was mobile-first and fully responsive, but still retained its regional charm. The Junge Haie GmbH managed the relauch of the website and completely relaunched the site.

Customer friendliness at the heart of the website

After the content management system based on Pimcore was set up, the website layout was created. When selecting a market, the user is shown the market in his vicinity based on the postal code or by geolocation. The market is saved for the user after leaving the website. A notepad function was used for the shopping list, which saves the customer's entries locally on the website. An editorial section was added to the recipe world. The recipes are taken from famila's database and enriched in the CMS. With the sweepstakes plugin, famila can create and maintain sweepstakes. The customers' participation data is stored in Pimcore and can be exported by famila. Thanks to the event module, famila can set different event types and provide them with a visibility period. Automatic mailings from the Pimcore system confirm the registration for the event to the customer.


Ready for the digital shopping world

The result is a mobile-optimized website that reflects famila's diversity and customer centricity online as well and offers customers an extra level of performance, service and content for customer retention. From the stored market finder and the shopping list to the "Recipe World", events or the customer magazine "MyTime" - the new development is an added value for the customers and, thanks to the technically comprehensive solutions, also for familas' editors. All these functions are designed in a multisite setup so that they can also be used for other websites without long development cycles.
