The Very Group is a digital retail company that sells home, fashion, and family products from over 2,000 brands, driving £2.3bn in annual revenue. They operate a handful of unique websites, each selling a curated catalog of products to customers across the UK and Ireland. The company also offers flexible financing options to make their products more accessible to customers around the world.
The Very Group brand has gone through many iterations of technology since starting as a catalog company over one hundred years ago. While the team had operated with a monolith system that served them well over the years, they wanted to prepare for a future where they could offer even more customer-focused and personalized experiences. This meant embracing a system with more flexibility for rapid innovation and experimentation.
