WooliesX – Single sign on

Problem statement

The Woolworths Group, encompassing Woolworths supermarkets, Everyday Rewards, and Big W, had separate logins for each platform. This case study details the UX process implemented during the launch of a new enterprise single login solution leveraging Auth0 solution, and the subsequent positive impact on user experience.

  • The login experiences for each platform differed visually and functionally, creating confusion for users.
  • Security Concerns: Managing multiple login credentials increased the risk of compromised accounts


  • One Ecosystem login for all the Woolworths group, eliminating the need for separate login screens for each brand
  • A centralized user profile was created using Auth0 technology, accessible across all platforms upon successful login
  • Customers can manage their shopping preferences, addresses and personal information from a central location
  • A consistent streamlined user journey across all platforms established, consistent reusable components across the Group

  • Keep customers logged in for longer on trusted devices, using extended tokens to prolong session times
