Working together with Columbia Road was a pleasure! The project team was highly skilled, professional and proactive, which made my role as a Product Owner a lot easier. Max Tötterman, Development Manager, Digital CX, Alko


The case

Columbia Road, together with Alko, designed and built the Alko Mobile app, which is now competing in the Finnish Web Awards.

In Spring 2019 Alko launched a mobile app as part of a bigger program, the goal for which is to serve Alko’s customers the best possible way wherever they are. In 2016 Alko launched a webstore to support it’s 360 store network and has continued to develop its omnichannel customer experience based on customer feedback. The mobile app is one step towards world-class customer service.
