    Magento Case Study: Green Top Sporting Goods

    Magento Case Study: Green Top Sporting Goods

    Magento Case Study: Green Top

    Migration and Custom Design

    Green Top Sporting Goods has operated its store in Ashland, Virginia since 1947. An NCR Counterpoint point-of-sale (POS) user, Green Top formerly used Counterpoint’s “CP Online” SAAS platform for eCommerce. Although the company’s brick-and-mortar location continued to expand its offerings, Green Top’s online product selection stayed largely the same, due to obstacles CP Online presented.

    The Challenge

    Green Top attempted to address some of their CP Online issues with custom programming, but abandoned the resulting utility because its administration was too involved.

    “Managing content on the CP Online system was a chore,” explained Green Top Manager of Internet Sales, Charles G. Thalhimer III. “Adding items was inflexible. Grouping them or configuring them the way we wanted was an expensive and frustrating software engineering process. We could only import certain items into CPOnline that were housed in the POS.”

    In addition, the company’s site was not mobile friendly, basically turning away an increasingly important source of revenue.

    Recognizing that these costly business problems would only become more prevalent as competitors gained market share, Green Top came to InteractOne seeking a more flexible and manageable eCommerce solution.

    Our Solution

    Like each Magento project undertaken by InteractOne, Green Top’s re-platform began with an extensive Feature Exploration Process. This comprehensive effort ensures that priorities and requirements are fully outlined – avoiding surprises. A well-planned approach appealed to Green Top.

    “We do things deliberately,” said Mr. Thalhimer. “We don’t like to backtrack. It was beneficial to us to map this out thoroughly and also to see what InteractOne had created for others.”

    Green Top presented InteractOne with a unique set of requirements, including extension integrations and custom coding of admin controls, product grids and more.

    While Green Top wanted to shed their inflexible CP Online system, they needed to retain their in-store Counterpoint POS system as the main hub for warehouse/fulfillment, inventory, CRM and order management activity.  InteractOne worked to integrate the two systems, so that critical customer, transaction and item information would pass seamlessly through theCounterpoint Magento Connector.

    With the increasing importance of mobile and tablet shoppers, Interactone installed the site with an adaptive framework and design, paying careful attention to usability and menu format.

    The Results

    Because of the flexibility of the Magento CMS, Green Top was able to launch the new site with an expanded roster of categories and items. Despite having dozens of product categories, navigation on the site is easy to use both on desktop and mobile platforms.

    “In the past, we were not able to merchandise the way we wanted to,” said Mr. Thalhimer. “For instance, grouping rods and reels is now relatively simple, using the attributes in Magento. We simply weren’t able to do it before. We have also been able to start selling apparel online, which we’re hoping will be a big growth area for us.”

    Online sales for Green Top have grown steadily since the launch of the new mobile-friendly Magento site. The company has experienced year-over year gains in key results:

    • 150% growth in mobile sales
    • 52% increase in mobile traffic
    • 5% boost in overall sales
    • 20% improvement in cart abandonment

    Additional business gains resulting from the re-platform project include:

    • Enhanced product visibility across affiliate networks.
    • Improved on-site search performance and relevance.
    • Increased front-end usability
    • Streamlined shipping process
    • Enabled swatch display per item
    • Item-based video capability
    • More effective social integration
    • Faster page and image load times

    Magento Case Study: School Supply Giant

    Magento Case Study: School Supply Giant

    Magento Case Study: School Supply Giant

    School Supply Giant offers one of the widest ranges of educational supplies, materials, equipment and kits available on the internet.

    The Challenge

    Teachers (the site’s primary target audience) tend to reward efficiency, clarity and speed. With scores of categories spanning thousands of individual items on schoolsupplygiant.com, this important group of customers could easily lose their way in confusing navigation or lose their patience with poorly organized items.

    School Supply Giant looked to InteractOne to help transition from their existing Content Management System (CMS) to the Magento CMS.

    Our Solution

    Creating a colorful, uncluttered, legible and search-friendly user experience was crucial to both the client and the InteractOne design team. InteractOne worked with School Supply Giant to implement an innovative approach to navigation, allowing product organization by grade level as well as traditional sorting categories.

    The deep product attribution inherent in Magento aids customers in sorting and shopping across the site.

    To encourage return visits and cement purchase habits, Magento enables School Supply Giant to setup a loyalty program, including points with purchase. Members can manage their information for shipping and other elements, while accumulating points that translate into special pricing and offers, as defined by the site administrator.

    Expanded revenue channels were assured with application of rules-based data optimization and filters across catalog for multi-channel feed.

    The Results

    Key business gains resulting from the re-platform project include:

    • Strong search and powerful navigation presenting fewer obstacles to purchase, raising conversion.
    • Driving customer engagement through the membership program.
    • Improved product visibility across affiliate networks.
    • Improved search performance and relevance.

    Magento Case Study: Charley Harper

    Magento Case Study: Charley Harper

    Magento Case Study: Charley Harper Store

    New Magento Site

    CharleyHarper.com was initially launched by Cincinnati-based framing and art print specialist Fabulous Frames & Art, the world’s largest dealer of Mr. Harper’s art prints and products. While Charley Harper (1924-2007) lived and worked in Cincinnati for much of his life, his work is now recognized internationally, having pioneered the use of modernistic geometric forms and saturated colors in wildlife art. The revamped eCommerce store offers licensed products, gifts, jewelry, in addition to showcasing high-quality prints and posters. Videos on the website demonstrate various printing methods that provide a wealth of information reinforcing the level of craftsmanship that goes into making the reproductions available in the online store.

    The Challenge

    InteractOne was challenged with revamping the CharleyHarper.com website by incorporating best practices for eCommerce while preserving the Harper-inspired design sensibility that the original website maintained.

    CharleyHarper.com has a product that is well-known around the world but needed a new website that better showcased the art to increase traffic and conversions.

    Our Solution

    To meet the requirements set up beforehand in our Solution Design Document, the InteractOne development team built the site on the Magento platform, customizing it to provide a unique design and shopping experience. The team added improved, rotating gallery images that enhanced the art’s presentation and helped increase conversion rates. The new flexible item attributes and improved search functionality gives customers an easier ability to find items specifically by artist, subject, or medium—helping encourage add-on sales.

    Additionally, the user-friendly Magento Customer Management System enabled the Charley Harper team to update content and manage their product inventory easily and in-house.

    The Results

    InteractOne successfully integrated the client’s design with Magento functionality to reflect the Charley Harper style. Since launching the new website, CharleyHarper.com has consistently achieved a page-one rank for targeted keywords. The website’s new functionalities also enabled the Charley Harper team to set up custom promotions, free shipping opportunities, and best-seller descriptions. InteractOne completed the project both on time and on budget.
