Co-op picks Digital Goodie for online grocery launch

The Co-op has chosen Digital Goodie Connected Commerce platform for its dedicated online grocery shopping service.

The service is currently available to shoppers within a four kilometre radius of a store on the Kings Road in London, and is due to be rolled out to a further eight London stores. The Co-op’s plan is to make online shopping available in a significant number of other UK towns and cities in the near future.

The Co-op’s new online service and e-commerce operations run on Digital Goodie’s Connected Commerce platform, a software as a service (SaaS) product, designed to enable retailers to run and grow their businesses online and connect their stores to the digital world seamlessly.

Co-op has deployed Digital Goodie’s commerce and fulfilment solutions including a personalised e-commerce website, a fulfilment solution enabling fast home deliveries, and efficient connections to payment and logistics providers.

Chris Conway, head of food digital at the Co-op, said: “Our new online shop and delivery service is an essential part of our expanding digital services to our customers. In this project, we have been very excited to work together with a modern and agile technology company such as Digital Goodie. The newly launched service is a result of our fruitful cooperation and agile development.”
