UV and Lamb Weston: A Mash Made in Heaven

UV and Lamb Weston: A Mash Made in Heaven

Is there a food that is more versatile than the humble potato? If there is then I’m unaware of it. Grown from the ground and hits heavenly flavors, potatoes are plain awesome, whether they’re fried, baked, mashed or boiled. Lamb Weston knows this. These spud specialists are one of the world’s largest producers of frozen french fries, as well as other potato products. Whether you want them diced or mashed, crinkled or straight, Lamb Weston has you covered.

Yet for the large American company, something didn’t peel right. They noticed that their website needed a revamp, and in particular its content management. So they began their search for a quality technology consultancy. And it quickly boiled down to a clear solution: United Virtualities.

The challenge

UV and Lamb Weston: A Mash Made in Heaven“Lamb Weston needed to migrate their main site,” said Sebastian, part of the team of developers that took on the project, “as well as international sites, to Adobe Experience Manager. However, they also wanted the migration to keep intact the entire design of the previous site.”

(Like a magician who sweeps the table cover from beneath the fine display of crockery and glassware, removing the cloth without changing the composition of the decorative table.)

Sebastian was part of a large team that also included Gerardo L. Dueñas, Ulises Pulido, Daniel Carrasco, Luis Alberto, and El Guishe, as well as the QA touch of Nadia Garcia.

“We managed to integrate their services to retrieve product information,” continued Sebastian. “This was done in parallel with keeping their current site live, which kept changing close to the launch date. And we also dealt with all the translations, which included Chinese, German, Dutch, French, Italian, and Spanish.”

We held regular and frequent video calls and constant daily communication via Slack.”

With Lamb Weston’s site fresh out the oven, we can already sense that sweet smell of enhanced success. So what else is there left to do for our project team? As Sebastian recommends: “Let’s go get some fries to celebrate!”

(Speaking of fried, I think I’ve hashed out as many potato puns that can be digested.)
