WSO2 Wins Long Term Contract with Premier British Household Brand Central England Co-operative

WSO2 will deliver API management and enterprise integration solutions to Central England Co-operative in 2022 to assist the co-operative in developing IT infrastructure that supports its growing community of members and consumers

London – 21st April 2022 – WSO2, the leader in digital transformation technology, today announced that it has won a significant new customer, Central England Co-operative (CEC). WSO2 will deliver its world-class API management and enterprise integration solutions to CEC, helping the organisation put in place the technology infrastructure to better support its growing community of members and consumers.

Central England Co-operative is the second-largest regional consumer co-operative in the UK out of 16 consumer co-operatives. Formed by the merger of Midlands and Anglia Co-operatives, CEC has more than 400 trading outlets, a family of over 8,000 colleagues, and more than 250,000 regular trading members. While the organisation is independent from the co-operative group, it is part of the wider co-operative movement, working together to provide benefits to its members and customers. CEC trades across 20 counties from the Midlands to the East Coast—through more than 250 food stores, 100-plus funeral homes, filling stations, and florists

CEC is partnering with WSO2 to meet its evolving API management, system integration and access management needs in both on-premises and cloud-based deployments. The project, which is due to kick off in the first half of 2022, will enable CEC to sync databases between different locations and create much-needed insights, files, and reports. CEC selected WSO2, which now serves more than 800 customers in over 80 countries, based on its advanced technical capabilities and solutions for securely delivering APIs, applications, and digital services.

“As multi-market retailers, like CEC, look to embrace digital business models, we are seeing growing demand for our unique approach to coupling best-in-class API management and integration,” said Ricardo Diniz, vice president and general manager, United Kingdom, Spain and France, WSO2. “We are honored to work with CEC in significantly lowering the required skills, time, and cost barriers to delivering secure new digital services to the co-operative’s customers and members.”

“Our goal is to always meet and exceed our members’ needs and stand up for the things they believe in, and our collaboration with WSO2 will enable us to deliver better services to our members,” said Adam Testro, Software Engineering Manager, CEC. “We were impressed by WSO2’s solutions and approach and its role in delivering API management, integration and integration to a global blue-chip customer base, and we are excited to work with the WSO2 team in 2022 and beyond.”
