Magento presented Boda Skins with a number of technical challenges, limited customisation options and poor flexibility.
T he Boda team was looking to move their rapidly growing business onto a more adaptable and easy-to-use ecommerce platform before continuing to branch out into fresh, new retail avenues. They are now finding it much easier to carry out product updates and general tasks.
Global Ecommerce Director, Will North, admits that the Knomo team spent last year struggling with the lack of technical flexibility available to them while they were hosting their online store with ecommerce platform Magento 1.
The team felt restricted by the fact that they could not make simple alterations to their online store without multiple technical hurdles and a considerable amount of waiting.
Despite investing significant time and funds into a Magento build, the Innermost team made a bold call; they decided to move their ecommerce store to a platform better able to cater for their evolving ecommerce needs.
They wanted an ecommerce solution that would allow them to help accelerate growth further. And it wasn’t long before the impact of their new Shopify Plus store became apparent.
“ Shopify Plus was just way more user-friendly and easier for our team to use. This meant it was way more valuable for our brand than Magento and switching platforms made a lot of sense for our business – especially seeing as Shopify is developing and improving all the time. Switching to Shopify Plus has been a complete game changer for us as we can now make changes so quickly and easily without getting bogged down by all of the coding that our previous platform required.”
