Running on an out-of-date custom-built eCommerce system
Walls and Floors were running on an out-of-date custom-built eCommerce system, which was archaic, difficult to work with, and could not meet the required business objectives. They wanted to scale the website, expand their product range and increase traffic to their online store.
The only way to further develop or expand their online store was to rely upon their existing development agency. However, their existing development agency was coming to an end, and all the knowledge of the custom-built system was about to be lost. So they needed to quickly migrate to a new eCommerce platform that was modern, future-proof, and could handle thousands of large and complex products with ever-changing ranges.
SEO was a major incoming driving force, so it was vital to continue this growth online and to expand upon it.
One of the major constraints on their existing website was the dated UI and lack of user experience. This needed to be radically redesigned.
Relaunched on Magento eCommerce platform
We relaunched their existing website on a secure and stable Magento platform. We successfully migrated all their existing products and ensured all essential attributes and data are fully mapped across without any losses, including legacy data such as customers and orders.
As well as redesigning the Walls and Floors website with improved UI, we also unveiled new features that helped drive better user experience of the online store including:
- Payment gateway integration with Opayo and PayPal
- Layered navigation to help customers filter products and quickly find what they are looking for
- Improved multi-layered and edible navigation, so products were clearly categorised for ease of navigation
- Integrated Blue CMS editor for advanced editing
- Improved admin panel to add and edit complex products
- Added new SEO friendly landing pages
- Performed SEO Optimization throughout the website
- Created a clear and simple checkout process
- Included Google Customer Reviews
- Added Questions and Answers so customers can leave questions on specific products
- An easy to use tile calculator
- Options for customers to order free tiles
Outstanding Magento store
With the success of the newly launched Magento store, customers have found it easier to find products and check out quickly and easily. With the improved UI and engaging features such as Questions and Answers, Walls and Floors were able to provide helpful answers directly to customers with questions. The tile calculator has proved to be a helpful tool to customers, and ordering a free sample tile has been a benefit which has led to an increase in follow-up purchases.
With these new engagements together with optimized landing pages and SEO improvements, Walls and Floors has seen a major increase in traffic volume and conversions.
Now that they are on the Magento platform, this has given them the confidence to expand further online and plan further features and campaigns that were not possible before. This has helped them enormously with growth, the ability to add unlimited complex products and the capacity to expand their business online without limits.
Since the new Magento website launch, they have been awarded the Google Certified Shop badge as the only online tile retailer.
