Assa Abloy UK approached us as a potential partner to work on the delivery of a new D2C store for Yale UK. They had a transactional site on Open Source Magento and a brochure store and wanted a single Magento Commerce instance to build from so needless to say, we were more than happy to help.



Usually we would hold face to face Discovery sessions and use it as ‘get to know each other’ time too, but coronavirus came along and was a challenge to us all. We ran our full Discovery workshops entirely remotely in late March and during April. Shorter, focused meetings were the way to go. We knew key topics to cover what was needed in a series of 1.5-hour Teams meetings. Never more than 3 meetings per day to give everyone some time to escape.

“I’ve been really impressed with the Eclipse team throughout the project. From the initial engagement, the discovery team, the developers and testing. The feedback from my colleagues has also been great and the Exec team are very impressed with the output. The team has helped keep the project on track and always pragmatic in their approach to solving challenges. The 2 teams have worked as they should, an extension of one another!”

— Lee Faetz, E-Business Director

With a new team, it takes time for Scrum to get going. We’d roughly estimated this project would take 6, 2-week developments so we blocked out what we wanted and when, before taking a “Scrumban” approach to our delivery.

Some things took less time than planned and some longer. We found extra requirements but even from the end of the first sprint, Magento showed its capabilities, but working closely with Yale’s team meant their priorities were always considered when making the big decisions. The build went very smoothly as we worked with Yale on testing, business readiness, and content creation.

Just the beginning

After such a successful launch we have plenty of plans for more features, enhancements and a rollout across more sites within the Group. With such a fantastic team on both sides we’re looking forward to an exciting future working together.
