Case Study: Deutsche Post Direkt GmbH - DataFactory Autocomplete

Agile project management always kept us, the client, up to date, and allowed us to quickly introduce changes and new requirements. Consulting and support around the project was highly professional. The outcome is quite impressive!

The Plan


Based on a recommendation by DHL, Netresearch was contacted by Deutsche Post Direkt GmbH in order to establish their services in the Magento ecosystem. Netresearch has been DHL's reliable partner and expert for Magento extension development for several years.

During an initial meeting and workshop, we jointly analyzed the customer's portfolio around the products relevant to e-commerce, ADDRESSFACTORY and DATAFACTORY, and discussed potential approaches for an integration into Magento shop systems.

Our recommendation to Deutsche Post Direkt was an initial implementation for Magento. For the relevant service, this is the largest target group, using a stable Magento system for the foreseeable future.

Development


Netresearch built an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) to integrate the first service DATAFACTORY AUTOCOMPLETE into Magento.

We continued in an agile project, completing the module in small iterations, while keeping direct contact with the customer the entire time.

The extension has been officially published on the Magento Marketplace. Future developments and adaptions are planned after collecting market insights. Netresearch also provides 2nd-level extension support for Deutsche Post Direkt.

Key Features

Result


The extension DATAFACTORY AUTOCOMPLETE for Magento 2 extends the Magento shop system with the address solution of Deutsche Post Direkt.

Merchants using Magento can greatly increase the address quality during checkout. This results in a significant reduction of undeliverable shipments and fewer expensive returns. Also, the address data gets optimized for further e-commerce processes (e.g. customer relationship management, marketing, solvency checks, or claims management).
