Customer expectations are at an all-time high and with more and more customers turning to the brands themselves for the supply of goods, the Direct 2 Consumer selling strategy has never been a better option. Global retail eCommerce sales are predicted to hit $4.5 trillion by 2021, so what are you doing to get your slice of the pie?
Magento announced the end of life i.e the end of support for Magento 1 also known as Magento Enterprise last year and with the end of life date quickly approaching. Brands like Fabi Boutique have been looking at their options.
The project was to take the existing Fabi Boutique store and migrate it across to Kooomo while also giving the front end a facelift. Fabi Boutique was able to provide the Kooomo team with a selection of inspirational content and from that, the new website was born. Designed with the customer experience at the forefront. The complete migration took Kooomo just 3 months from start to finish.
Having decided to make the switch from Magento to the Kooomo platform. The entire migration took 12 weeks. All existing data was migrated across to the Kooomo platform, the new and improved Fabi Boutique store was up and running and the business was seeing an increase in conversions within a matter of days of going live.
Since re-platforming to Kooomo, online sales have consistently continued to soar as can be seen in the figures. A total increase of 150% was seen in the second half of the year when compared to the first half. The total cost of migration was also a welcome surprise when there was no need for system integrators thanks to Kooomo’s partner network and 1-click integrations.
