ChemInstruments

InteractOne was tasked with migrating the Magneto 1 ChemInstruments site to BigCommerce.

 

ChemInstruments

ChemInstruments is a family owned business that has been providing specialized adhesive (all things sticky on tape, envelopes, packaging, etc) testing equipment to the manufacturing and adhesive market for over 25 years. Their products are truly unique, one of a kind equipment that can be configured and specially customized to meet the needs of their B2B customers.

ChemInstruments has been a long time client of InteractOne as we supported their Magento website and provided search engine optimization services. As their Magento 1 website aged however it became necessary to migrate to a more up to date platform. InteractOne recommended ChemInstruments migrate to BigCommerce because it is a best-in-class, cost effective, high performing solution for mid market B2B companies like ChemInstruments.

Jump right to their new site and see if for yourself.

The Challenge

ChemInstruments’ website was facing a whole host of challenges. Magento 1 was aging and becoming unstable on newer devices. As well, performance and security became more and more difficult to maintain as the Magento platform aged.

Our team of Magento and BigCommerce experts worked quickly to migrate the ChemInstruments site to a secure and fast performing BigCommerce website.

Our Solution

We delivered a fresh new design style plus a revamped product catalog and quoting solution on the fast, stable and secure BigCommerce platform.

The new site is mobile friendly, easy to use and provides customers with the ability to receive quotes and order highly customized products for their adhesive testing and research needs. As well ChemInstruments no longer needs to worry about installing security patches, upgrades or hosting because BigCommerce as a Saas solution handles all of those duties seemlessly on the backend.

    Project Highlights

    • Integrated a customizable quoting application.
    • Fresh new design
    • Content and promotion administration and automation.
    • Training and enablement in managing the site content from the BigCommerce admin.

    The Results

    The updated design and improvements that InteractOne provided ChemInstrument provided an immediate uptick in performance scores on Google Page Speed Insights and an increase in search engine performance and customer quote requests.

          Holiday Season Crunch! Correcting UX/UI Issues & Installing New Features  

          Lancer Cosmetics

          Adobe Commerce Update & Site Speed Improvement

          Created in Beverly Hills but used and loved around the world, Lancer Cosmetics is a leader and trend-setter in the beauty and skincare industry. Dr. Harold Lancer founded the Lancer Dermatology Clinic in 1985 and successfully brought to life his philosophy of “From Practice To Product”. As his clinic grew in name and popularity, Dr. Lancer developed and launched a full range of award winning, at-home products that each individually simulate services provided to clients at the Lancer Dermatology Clinic in Beverly Hills. Over the last three decades, Dr. Lancer has successfully expanded the Lancer Skincare line and now serves customers worldwide with a variety of serums, creams, oils, masks and peels to address all skin concerns, regardless of skin type or ancestry via their Magento/Adobe Commerce web shop.

          Jump right to their site and see it for yourself.

          The Challenge

          Lancer Cosmetics’ website was facing a whole host of problems. There were numerous UX/UI bugs that were hindering conversion on mobile, a poorly coded front-end theme was causing massive slowdowns and critical security patches were missing.

          Lancer chose InteractOne to partner with to address these and other issues because of our deep and long Magento experience. We were brought in to fix these serious issues and install new site features, just in time for the 2021 holiday season. Post holidays (in the month of January 2022) our staff corrected a number of core hacks and fully upgraded the site.

          Our Solution

          Before the holiday season arrived, we addressed the most pressing site issues, the most concerning of which was that customers on mobile devices were receiving an ERROR message that was causing major conversion issues. There were also several additional UX/UI bugs and slow performance on mobile and desktop that were causing even more conversion problems. The UX/UI bugs were caused by poorly coded front-end customizations. We corrected those bugs and enabled admin functionality so that Lancer could control more of the UX/UI from the Magento/Adobe Commerce Admin.

            We identified that the security issues were being caused by their older version of Magento. The Lancer site was running on version 2.3.6 and we upgraded it to 2.4.2.

            With bugs, core hacks and security issues addressed, we turned to Lancer site functionality improvement wish list. The Lancer team wanted to expand their free promotional offerings available on the site. We enhanced the Free Gift with Purchase feature by empowering shoppers to choose between multiple free products and bundles to be added to their cart.

            We also worked to provide Lancer with the following:

            • Improved ERP integration by reworking the inventory tracking and ERP sync, lowering the chances of customers ordering any products that are out of stock.
            • Byond XR virtual shopping integration and sweepstakes program.
            • Content and promotion administration and automation.
            • Training and enablement in how to manage the site from the Magento admin.

            The Results

            The corrections and improvements that InteractOne provided immediate dividends as shown by these statistics:

            100% increase in conversion rate the first month we started working on the site compared to the prior month.

            The first 4 months since updates were installed: 

            • 14% lift in year over year ecommerce conversion
            • 12% increase in year over year unique purchases
            • 13% increase in year over year quantity of orders

              Jump right to their new site and see if for yourself.

              The Challenge

              The Queen’s Treasures came to InteractOne with an outdated CS-Cart platform that required them to manage their own hosting, upgrades, and security patches; which became costly and time consuming. The site was also providing their customers with a poor user experience and was costing them conversions. The Queen’s Treasures’ team chose InteractOne to correct these issues as well as implementing features to enhance a newly updated site, all while finding a way to maintain the company’s unique brand.

              Our Solution

              Due to the costly maintenance, UX issues, and security concerns The Queen’s Treasure was experiencing with their existing CS-Cart site, it was important for the InteractOne development team to fully understand our client’s needs and that the site migration met both parties’ expectations prior to going live.

                After completing that due diligence, InteractOne recommended and began by migrating the existing site to a new BigCommerce website to take advantage of the lower total cost of ownership, increased functionality, faster performance, better SEO, and better security provided by BigCommerce. Then, we engaged in a refresh/improved custom theme, consistent with The Queen’s Treasures brand identity, while enhancing product imagery and the overall user experience on the site. We also integrated abandoned cart notifications, customer reviews, gift certificate options, and an email newsletter signup to assist with the automation and efficiency of subscriber information.

                  The Results

                  Our efforts produced major improvements to help streamline the customer experience and increase conversions. These improvements enabled:

                  • Faster page load times
                  • Smoother user experience
                  • Improved catalog management
                  • Enhanced store locator capabilities
                  • Reduction in cart abandonment due to notifications

                    The Challenge

                    Shoe Sensation came to InteractOne with an existing Magento 2.3 website that was overwhelmed with technical debt, including bugs, and performance issues. Their previous developers lacked experience and struggled with implementation, providing them with a UX/UI that had poor performance and a buy online/pickup in store (BOPIS) checkout process that was costing them conversions. Shoe Sensation chose InteractOne to correct these issues and for routine Magento maintenance and support services. 

                    Our Solution

                    Due to the implementation struggles Shoe Sensation had with their previous developer, it was important for the InteractOne development team to fully understand our client’s needs and that the updated site met both parties’ expectations prior to going live.


                    After resolving the immediate bugs and getting the site stable InteractOne engaged in a project to refresh/improve the design and user experience as well as to upgrade Magento from Version 2.3.5 to 2.4.2. We also integrated uRapidflow by Unirgy to assist with automation and efficiency of inventory data management. 

                      The Results

                      Our efforts produced major improvement, to the buy online pickup in-store, user experience, enhanced store locator capabilities and streamlined the customer checkout experience. These improvements caused:

                      • Major improvement to the buy online pickup in-store, user experience
                      • Faster page load times (increased by 25%)
                      • Reduction in cart abandonment
                      • Enhanced store locator capabilities
                      • Streamlined the customer checkout experience
                      • Ability to rival big-box competitors
                      • Increase in Speed: Page load 25% 25%
