The challenge

This is some text inside of a div block.

With the rise in online and pre-orders, it became apparent that Tesco`s manual tracking was slow, leading to mistakes in order processing and unhappy customers. The absence of a cohesive feedback system also made it difficult to promptly address customer feedback, both positive and negative.

These challenges could ultimately lead to lost sales, diminished brand reputation, increased operational costs, and missed opportunities for process improvement and customer engagement.

To handle Tesco's challenges with increasing online orders, Weigandt Consulting collaborated closely with the Tesco team. Together, we developed a real-time order tracking and management system, based on micro-services architecture, enhancing the speed and accuracy of the ordering process. Our system provides real-time details on order status and payment, simplifying order monitoring. An integral component is its capacity to collect and interpret customer feedback, driving service enhancements.

Additionally, our solution incorporated an efficient mechanism for collecting and analysing customer feedback. By delivering this system, we improved both operational efficiency and customer satisfaction.

Legacy Modernisation

Weigandt Consulting's collaboration with Tesco led to creating a system that handles up to 2000 messages per second on standard days and peaks at over 5000 during busy holiday seasons.

Through our partnership, we also championed the use of a reactive technology stack, leading to quicker operations and optimised resource utilisation.

During the development process, a strong emphasis was placed on testing. We introduced a culture where developers ensured robust unit and integration test coverage for each feature. This approach not only detected issues early but also fostered a commitment to quality throughout the project.
