Challenge

The biggest challenge Apricorn and Redstage faced was content data migration. Due to Apricorn’s customizations on Magento 1 (custom fields used for content pages and product page data), it became difficult to migrate the data to BigCommerce. This was an important aspect of the project, as Apricorn’s thought leadership is instrumental in their business success, and the content pages are where they prove product authority. Using Shogun, we were able to rebuild Apricorn’s product pages and migrate the necessary data quickly and efficiently.

Solution

  • User Experience (UX/UI)
  • Digital Design
  • Website Creation

While this was no easy task, Redstage never stands down from a challenge and pushed through to complete the necessary migration on our clients’ timeline. Thanks to the power of BigCommerce’s out of the box solutions and features, we were able to keep the number of apps to implement down, helping in making the launch one of our smoothest yet!

With Apricorn’s multinational audience, they had a burning need for multi-language and multi-currency options in their new store. Utilizing BigCommerce’s GEO-IP function, we were able to natively implement an automatic IP lookup, crucial in determining shipping rates, currency exchanges, language options, and tax rates.

Our award-winning creative team designed a style guide for the new Apricorn site, a template of fonts, color schemes, and patterns in line with Apricorn’s branding and image. With this, their imagery will be streamlined and their branding will stand out from the competition even further, allowing them to further showcase their thought leadership.
