I was impressed with the Monterail’s speed of work and ability to work under time constraints. They managed to deliver a business-critical feature for us keeping the high quality, paid attention to detail and showed great responsiveness during the process. Monterail proved to be a partner to rely on  under all circumstances. Magdalena Mazur-Milewska PRODUCT OWNER AT PIZZA HUT

The Challenge

Pizza Hut is an American restaurant chain founded in 1958. With 156 sites, it’s a leading restaurant serving pizza in Poland.  

The client reached us on a Friday evening and asked to introduce a new business-critical feature to their web and mobile apps, contact-free delivery on a doormat. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, they wanted to apply precautionary measures and ensure safety for their carriers and customers.

We were to implement an informative pop-up for the website visitors and apply changes at the checkout stage.

The whole task was really time-sensitive as Pizza Hut opens restaurants at 11, and they wanted to be prepared for a new type of delivery since the early hours of Saturday. 

The key challenges included:

The Process

On Friday evening, our Project Manager started from gathering as much information as possible, preparing a detailed scope and tasks that were later on passed on the team. 

Then, the team including a designer, a front-end developer and a QA specialist started working on their parts. We were in constant communication with Pizza Hut’s Product Owner who was very reactive and made sure there are no blockers to our tasks. There was no need for any iterations as our suggestions and graphics met the client’s needs immediately.

At first, I didn’t think it would be possible to deliver the feature so quickly but the whole team reacted very enthusiastically to the necessity of working extra hours as the whole situation with the pandemic requires extra solutions as well. It’s amazing to be helping businesses transform digitally and survive on the market in these unfavorable conditions. Anna Wójcik PROJECT MANAGER

The Outcome

Our “war cabinet” successfully delivered changes on the website informing users about a new approach. Everyone making an order from Pizza Hut, whether through a mobile or web application, is aware of the contact-free delivery and can choose it during the checkout process. 

Due to quick strategic decisions and huge flexibility on both sides, Pizza Hut ensures the continuity of their deliveries and emphasizes this aspect of their business even more. A doormat delivery became a huge support to the functioning of their restaurants. 

The success of this project hinged on the following factors.
