Achieving real-time collaboration

Canadian Tire had many varied, one-off systems built and inherited through acquisitions over the company’s 90-year history. There was a need to consolidate a variety of disparate systems and data sources due to their growth and expansion. Several departments within Canadian Tire needed access to real-time information from a centralized access point to enable enhanced collaboration across geographies, business
units, stores, distribution centers and corporate departments. The brand needed a solution that could help them achieve real-time collaboration while retaining brand identities from a single, centralized access point.


A Centralized Employee Portal for Access to Real-Time Information.

Canadian Tire chose the Liferay platform for this solution for multiple reasons.

They had been using Liferay 6.2 previously for their other applications, which Veriday was originally hired to provide help with. They wanted to continue to use Liferay – and Veriday – for this project, which would be their first on 7.0.

The main goal of this project was to replace the legacy system and upgrade the capabilities and experience from that Sharepoint platform to a modern platform that helped them achieve those goals. Choosing to use Liferay 7.0 also allowed them to leverage Veriday’s expertise with the platform. Veriday is a leading platinum Liferay partner in Canada and has been building innovative Liferay solutions for over 10 years for multiple Fortune 500 companies.


Long-term success

The portal solution Veriday built for Canadian Tire has achieved several results, including:

Increased agility for their in-house IT delivery team, who are now able to deliver new features quickly.
Increased internal satisfaction, by providing employees with the tools they need to do their job more effectively.
Made data more accessible, from any device, anytime.
Improved long-term value for Canadian Tire’s portal technology, by providing a scalable foundation that can evolve and grow with Canadian Tire.

The solution has achieved excellent adoption rates, with 90% of Canadian Tire stores using the platform on a day-to-day basis.

All of these results line up with the combined goals for Canadian Tire’s portal solution, improving overall productivity. Veriday knows that the portal solution built for Canadian Tire will help Canada’s most iconic retail brand continue to grow today, and in the future. Choosing Liferay and Veriday resulted in a great solution for Canadian Tire’s outdated portal.
