We're thrilled to announce that the Greggs Digital Team has been awarded Team of the Year at the prestigious UKIT Awards. This achievement is a testament to the hard work of our team. In recent years, Greggs has significantly grown its internal development team and has moved from a heavily outsourced to an insourced model. As well as delivering value adding projects, the in-house team are being recognised for their innovative work. The ongoing digital transformation impacts all areas of the business, including the Greggs App, website, colleague engagement, shop systems and supply chain.

Driving Success Through Collaboration:

Our success is the result of outstanding teamwork across all of our teams. Working in collaboration within the digital team; collaborating with other business functions, and always having the end-user at the forefront of our thinking have been the driving forces behind every product, and we're incredibly proud of the way we have all come together to be recognised for this award.

Implementing a Micro Service Architecture:

At the heart of our success is the strategic implementation of a micro service architecture. This forward-thinking approach has not only enhanced our system's scalability and flexibility, but has also allowed us to deliver cutting-edge solutions to our customers, such as our loyalty proposition on the Greggs App.

Embracing Bleeding-Edge Technologies:

We believe in staying ahead of the curve, and our commitment to bleeding-edge application technologies has set us apart. By embracing the latest innovations, we've been able to create digital experiences that resonate with our customers and keep us at the forefront of the industry. Recently, Greggs has announced further investment in our digital transformation journey, leading to the creation of more than 20 new roles at our Quorum Business Park Headquarters, as we continue to develop our industry-leading tech teams.

Gratitude to the Entire Team:

This achievement wouldn't have been possible without the hard work and dedication of every member of the Digital Team and collaboration across all teams at Greggs. Their passion and expertise have truly made a difference, and this award is a reflection of everyone.

What's Next?

As we celebrate this milestone, we're also excited about the future. The journey doesn't end here – we're committed to pushing boundaries, exploring new possibilities, and continuing to deliver digital excellence for Greggs and our customers.

Thank you to everyone who has been part of this incredible journey.
