The Challenge

The first challenge was Sleekshop’s wanted to move from their Yahoo platform to Big Commerce. With a large footprint, they needed to move platforms without losing any of the positionings that they previously had gained from being on the Yahoo platform. Additionally, they needed to find the right e-commerce solution that would be able to manage inventory, order management process and other important back-office functions like sales tracking.

The system they were on was an outdated system which was not giving their customers the interface or experience they wanted to give. They needed something much more robust and advanced. Sleekshop’s goal was to revamp all existing tools and bring everything into one e-commerce platform so that their team could manage orders and sales without going crazy.

The Approach

We first took the time to understand Sleek Shop’s business and identify core problems and opportunities. Only after fully understanding Sleek Shop’s store did we begin to propose solutions and approach, creating a tailored solution to the specific to their unique situation.

We took over all e-commerce based tasks of Sleekshop including enhancement, optimization, and maintenance of their sites including server hardware optimization, design, and deployment of new sites, product data entry, marketing services, and more. Over the years as the relationship progressed Sleekshop gave more responsibilities as their store and website grew in revenue.

Everything that Sleekshop presents and sell online came through Idevelopersquare’s web services. Our work included Web design and development, e-commerce development, SEO search engine optimization, and online marketing through other portals, such as comparison shopping engines and Amazon.
