Project Story

Online Science Mall was on Magento Enterprise, which needs a lot of upkeep and technical know-how. They wanted a simpler, more manageable platform so their team could focus on marketing and growth. A Shopify Plus migration was the smartest move. Shopify Plus offers the enterprise features they needed on a low-maintenance platform.

On the back end, we successfully migrated their data to the new platform. Data migration is always a challenge, so we took the time to carefully plan and execute the move. We analyzed their data and advised ways to clean it up. This would improve their workflow, reduce headaches, trim overhead, and streamline operations. We also partnered with Stitch Labs to create a consistent data flow between their site and their sales channels on Amazon and eBay.

On the front end, we improved user experience through design and copy. We created a custom mobile-friendly design that looks great on all devices. We developed a writing style guide to equip their team for the future. They can use this reference document to write their own product descriptions, social media posts, and email campaigns. We shifted their focus from maintenance to marketing and gave them a way to keep everything on brand.

Key Results

We delivered a mobile-friendly, easy-to-manage Shopify Plus site. They gained more control over their business—a huge step forward. Their new design and style guide prepared them for the future. Today they can save money and drive their own success by focusing on marketing and growth.
