12-week replatform for custom-built, fully-responsive site to improve UX.

Client Overview

Yumi are an online womenswear fashion retailer specialising in printed dresses with quirky patterns.


Yumi came to us after having some frustrations with the expensive, legacy Demandware platform.  Their research pointed towards a scalable, robust SaaS solution – which led them to BigCommerce. They began their search for an agency who could conduct the re-platforming process; as the leading, certified and preferred BigCommerce partner in the UK, there was no better match than 5874.

Project Goals

Frustrated: by arbitrary/platform limitations and poor support

Difficult: primary interface, search tools, customisation and updates

Expensive: Demandware technology costing £thousands per month


Though a large and complex project due to the integration of other platforms, and all of their products being held under an outdated PIMS and separate Warehouse system, the BigCommerce API handled it perfectly.

This enabled the re-platforming process to be completed in a pretty astonishing 3-month time frame, much faster than if it had been done via other legacy platforms – proving once again, that BigCommerce is more than worthy of its reputation.
