What Veriday Built
Veriday built a solution on Liferay 7.0 with a modern architecture that’s deployable to the cloud, and the flexibility and agility to evolve with new technology and future growth. It’s clear Liferay was the best platform to build Canadian Tire’s required solution that matched their goals.
The project ran with agile methodology, led by their project managers with our solutions architect leading the application and Liferay development. A joint team of developers from both Canadian Tire and Veriday were involved in the project. Outside of this project, Veriday continues to provide support for the platform as well as the application.
Veriday delivered a Liferay portal that is accessible from any device, offers rich personalization, and accomplished all of Canadian Tire’s wants and needs for their new application.
The Liferay portal is the primary communication channel between the Corporation and Store Operations. “Deal” Ordering Information, StopSales/Recalls, Critical Alerts (system outages, weather delays, etc..) are published and accessed via this platform.
Canadian Tire’s portal is built with a history of excellent open-source fundamentals, providing a decade’s worth of innovation from thousands of developers with the flexibility to tailor the platform to meet development needs that they outlined for this solution.
The portal solution Veriday built for Canadian Tire has achieved several results, including:
- • Increased agility for their in-house IT delivery team, who are now able to deliver new features quickly.
• Increased internal satisfaction, by providing employees with the tools they need to do their job more effectively.
• Made data more accessible, from any device, anytime.
• Improved long-term value for Canadian Tire’s portal technology, by providing a scalable foundation that can evolve and grow with Canadian Tire.
The solution has achieved excellent adoption rates, with 90% of Canadian Tire stores using the platform on a day-to-day basis.
All of these results line up with the combined goals for Canadian Tire’s portal solution, improving overall productivity. Veriday knows that the portal solution built for Canadian Tire will help Canada’s most iconic retail brand continue to grow today, and in the future. Choosing Liferay and Veriday resulted in a great solution for Canadian Tire’s outdated portal.
