What's it like to work with Redstage?

"Redstage has become an extension of our team. With their support, we were able to launch three new sites in two different countries all within the same month. The team at Redstage worked relentlessly to meet tight deadlines and accommodated our challenging schedules spanning across various time zones. We've already seen positive improvements with our new Magento 2 sites, and we can't wait to see how far we can push our KPIs in the year ahead!"

OUR STORY

Head-to-Toe Essentials

It’s an all too familiar story. An enterprise retailer with multiple sites on various platforms seeking to consolidate its digital infrastructure and propel international growth. The retailer also needed a significant overhaul of its inventory and purchasing options to manage multi-national operations.

On top of these goals, one of ZBG’s brand’s Tweezerman faced additional challenges: Seeking to create a page to streamline the customer experience with their tool sharpening service for certain products and implementing a custom engraving feature, while improving conversions and increasing average order value across the board.

 

The Challenge

The new sites needed to remain independent of one another, but be manageable under a single Magento instance for easy monitoring and management. The new stores also required different inventories,  shipping methods, and multi-currency options.

The ZBG team also noted the importance of keeping the sites’ CX in-tact to avoid alienating customers, requiring custom design work (since Magento 2 themes are quite different from those of Magento 1).

 

The Solution

Choosing Magento Commerce Cloud as the optimal platform for the project, Redstage and ZBG were able to accomplish all of the goals mentioned above and more. The implementations took approximately 10 months to complete, culminating in the course of a few weeks when we launched four new stores:

The U.S.-based website (Tweezerman.com), two Germany-based websites (Tweezerman.de and Zwillingbeauty.com), and the UK-based store (Tweezerman.co.uk).

A NEW SLATE

Here’s What’s Next

ZBG’s new site designs were updated to reduce friction as much as possible, especially during checkout. The new stores are easy to navigate, order processing is smoother, and there’s less friction across all stages of the customer journey. The centralized infrastructure consolidates maintenance, making upkeep and support much easier than it has ever been between the sites. This was a major focal point for the ZBG team, and they are very happy with the results. Given the incredible short-term results, we anticipate a banner year for the brand’s online sales in 2020.
