Tieto delivers an intranet to the largest hypermarket retail chain to originate in Russia


Russian hypermarket retail chain Lenta has officially launched its new intranet portal. It’s based on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS) and delivered by Tieto. Lenta is the 3rd largest hypermarket retail chain in Russia and the largest of Russian origin. It operates 34 complexes throughout the country.

When Lenta decided to modernize its intranet portal, Microsoft Russia recommended Tieto as a trusted MOSS developer. The choice was in line with Lenta’s strategy of working with market leaders like Microsoft, SAP, IBM - and now Tieto.

Tieto consultants from Finland and the Czech Republic developed the functional and graphic design of Lenta’s new portal. The implementation was performed by a local Russian-Belarusian team. This project is a great example of the Tieto Global Delivery Model in action and the results exceeded customer expectations.

“The resource created by Tieto will play an important role in our information environment. The new portal will help us improve the quality of our information workers, increase their awareness of our business processes and decision-making, as well as facilitate the effective sharing of knowledge and generation of new ideas”, says Sergey Cherny, CIO at Lenta.

“Lenta was our first experience of working closely with a Russian customer. Three things stood out as positive surprises: First, the customer was technically advanced with a modern infrastructure. Second, the customer has a very clear understanding of how to buy and run IT projects, with clear requirements. Third, the project personnel and stakeholders were extremely committed throughout the project. Microsoft also provided valuable support with platform issues. We had a real all-star team to ensure the delivery of a portal that gives real strategic business value”, says Peter Lindberg, Tieto Russia.

After successfully completing the first phase of the project, Tieto and Lenta are now planning further development of the resource.
