Outdated platform IBM Websphere with very high license and development cost
Slow site speed
Unable able to be agile with marketing due to lack of CMS functionality
Scotts & Co is a multi-channel retail business including the brands “Scotts of Stow”, “Expert Verdict”, “Gift Discoveries” and “Bloom”.
Scotts & Co came to 5874 looking to replatform their sites. They were running their existing sites on an outdated platform – IBM Websphere – which had a very high license fee and the cost for development was high.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.
Based on the wireframes, Scotts designers went away and designed the site and asked for our feedback. Once this process was complete, we replatformed the four sites onto BigCommerce, and this was completed in just 14 weeks.
Searchspring was integrated into BigCommerce to enhance the search and merch tools, giving the flexibility, control and power Scotts required. BigCommerce was the ideal platform as it is quick, scalable, as well as being a SaaS platform, which the client required as they moved away from their monolith eCommerce platform.
