Second Serving of the UV-Lamb Weston Project

Second Serving of the UV-Lamb Weston Project

There’s a famous Irish saying that goes something like this: “Only two things in this world are too serious to be jested on, potatoes and matrimony.” Here at UV we only partly agree with this quote, as we do enjoy the occasional matrimony joke.

Their goal was to build a section where their customers could subscribe and receive exclusive content, and at the same time, to be able to track the activity of users who visited their site.

We had already worked with Lamb Weston on a huge replatforming of all their regional sites, which was successfully launched about 3 months ago, but this new challenge had one of our star tech leads, Sebastian Correa, pretty excited.

“The best part was to be able to work with AEM and Salesforce at the same time,” said Sebastian. “I love both platforms and the opportunity to work on an integration of both was a great experience. I had never worked with Pardot before, so that was challenging as well but a good learning experience at the same time.”

Alberto Velazquez and Mario Murillo worked alongside Sebastian in the development, and the team was able to successfully deliver this feature in record timing: one and a half months! The thing is, at UV we pride ourselves on being just as good at human integrations as Salesforce-AEM ones, and as Sebastian put it: “When the timeline is so tight, the most important thing is to have a solid team that you can count on, and both Alberto and Mario were totally up to the task.”

Second Serving of the UV-Lamb Weston ProjectAs always, the news of this launch was met with loads of emojis and hurrahs on our Slack channel. And although the old normal (pre-Covid-19) would’ve included an actual toast and a little victory dance, the news got us all tempted to indulge in some delicious french fries so it felt like we were all celebrating together in our own greasy way.
