Challenge

Westfield Malls, one of the world’s largest shopping center owners and managers, was focused on innovating new digital products to enhance the mall experience in food, fashion, leisure and entertainment. Westfield was looking to develop a number of solutions to test out in stores in quick time and needed an extended team that was innovative and familiar with the process of bringing new ideas to life. To that end, Westfield engaged Calcey’s boutique product engineering services on a number of digital projects.

Solution

Calcey’s engineering team built a number of digital products for Westfield. Some directly addressed well-defined needs that Westfield needed to bring to market quickly, such as a Wi-Fi portal to manage Wi-Fi networks across multiple malls. Others involved developing MVPs of new ideas that the company wanted to pilot inside their premises such as a mobile app for shoppers to pre-order food from the food outlets across the mall.

Calcey’s Quality Assurance team was engaged to automate Westfield’s regression test suite. Working in close collaboration with Westfield’s internal team, Calcey was able to automate the testing process end to end using test automation and continuous delivery frameworks including Cucumber, Selenium WebDriver and Jenkins.
