The Client

Scotts & Co is a multi-channel retail business including the brands “Scotts of Stow”, “Expert Verdict”, “Gift Discoveries” and “Bloom”.

The Challenge

Scotts & Co came to 5874 looking to replatform their sites. They were running their existing sites on an outdated legacy, self-hosted platform – IBM Websphere – which had a very high license fee and the cost for development was high. They were also experiencing issues with slow site speeds. Scotts & Co also expressed that they wanted to be agile with their marketing which was not possible due to their lack of CMS functionality.

They had already selected BigCommerce as their platform of choice and were looking to partner with an agency who understood them and their business, and wanted to work together for the long term.

Our Solution

We started with our discovery process, which was extremely important with this project as there were several complexities integrating the traditional sales channels of printed catalogues with their online stores.

Scotts had a complex and varied technology stack, some of which they wanted to change immediately and others over time. This included a custom built PIM and DAM, as well as integrations with ShipperHQ, DotDigital, Braintree, PayPal and Amazon Pay.

Searchspring was integrated into BigCommerce to enhance the search and merch tools, giving the flexibility, control and power Scotts required.

We had a short delivery window but we launched 4 sites on BigCommerce in just 5 months.

It hasn’t stopped there…

The 58 and Scotts working relationship has continued, launching an additional 3 stores, introducing PageBuilder and a new Universal Theme approach, enabling Scotts to launch a new brand in a matter of weeks. The deployment app preserves the PageBuilder elements from the previous theme in the new version – something not natively possible in BigCommerce. This innovative integration means Scotts can launch a new build in a matter of weeks instead of months.
