The biggest shopping advisor in CEE
One of Europe's biggest players in online retail wanted to fortify its position as the leading price comparison website and shopping advisor.
We helped to improve Heureka's existing architecture and revitalize their software development teams.
- Python development
- Supporting solution architecture
- Sharing developer culture and work principles
MISSION: ONE PLATFORM TO RULE THEM ALL
Heureka Group is the largest e-commerce platform in CEE,
receiving over 20 million visitors per month. They were looking for a solution to unify their data sources, create a common platform, and be a united international online shopping advisor for Central Europe. To embark on a project of this scale, they needed a reliable partner.
CHALLENGE: BREAKING THE MONOLITH
At the time, the platform was a big monolithic application written in PHP.
This increased maintenance costs and presented a complication for further development. Heureka, therefore, proceeded to modernize, gradually moving away from a monolithic architecture to microservices.
SOLUTION: TEAM'S KNOW-HOW
We created hybrid teams together with Heureka Group.
We supported the improvement and validation of the existing solution architecture while contributing to smoother cooperation.
- "Thanks to Applifting, we were able to significantly boost our teams at Heureka Group. This helped us face many technological challenges that had arisen when building the unified cross-boarded platform. One of the main joint projects is a united product catalogue across the European countries we operate in. Moreover, we appreciate the cultural fit, which enables hybrid teams to work more smoothly. We value the quality of our cooperation and the helpful approach in troubleshooting. For these reasons and more, we definitely recommend cooperating with Applifting.”
