The Challenge

Helping customers select items in a fast, enjoyable digital experience

Many retailers are transforming to meet consumer expectations for attractive and intuitive digital shopping experiences, and supermarket chain Carrefour is no exception.

 

Faced with an inconsistent e-commerce landscape comprising multiple Web sites on different platforms, Carrefour sought an integrated solution to enable an accessible omnichannel shopping experience that reflects the high quality of its merchandise. Carrefour knew that having the right platform would help future-proof its business by allowing it to respond quickly to fast-changing customer expectations ‒ which is an important step in becoming the world leader in food e-commerce.

 

The Solution

Creating a consistent and efficient shopping experience in the cloud

To integrate multiple, diverse customer-facing Web sites and mobile apps in one consistent e-commerce experience, Carrefour chose SAP Commerce Cloud and SAP Customer Data Cloud solutions. These cloud-based solutions replaced a custom-made, hosted customer login system.

 

SAP Commerce Cloud provides the reliability and scalability needed to build meaningful experiences anytime, anywhere, and on any device. The solution empowers Carrefour to build an experience that allows customers to purchase items using mobile devices or through its Web site.

 

SAP Customer Data Cloud also played a key role in the e-commerce transformation by setting the foundation for a smooth, software-as-a-service registration process.

The Result

Enhancing the e-commerce experience from order to delivery or pickup

With the combination of SAP Commerce Cloud and SAP Customer Data Cloud, Carrefour created a streamlined e-commerce platform that operates in a more stable IT environment.

 

The platform enables customers to purchase items and choose between having their groceries delivered or available for in-store pickup. It supports a more efficient shopping experience with better product filtering through integrated product information management and assortments tailored by store.

 

Through this initiative, Carrefour is on its way to becoming a trailblazer among grocery retailers. Along with processing more online transactions and increasing Web site traffic, Carrefour is turning more shoppers into long-time loyal customers.
