Challenge

Staylime carried out a complex Magento 2 migration for Jaydee Living, a british family-run recycling business. We also delivered a custom design theme and functionality for all 5 newly deployed stores. We were tasked with migration at first. However, given the size of the customer’s online ecosystem, we proposed building a single backend for the suite too.

Solution

Apart from performing incremental migration of 4 standalone websites, our engineers moved the existing blog to the ‘Blog for M2 by Aheadworks’ extension with a custom script. All the SEO settings, including URLs and tags, were also transferred to Magento 2 as part of the migration to preserve the initial positions in search engines. To reduce the efforts required for deployment of new stores, we created a one-of-a-kind installable theme package for Magento 2 that can be easily deployed on other websites with minor customizations. Thanks to this solution, all websites under Jaydee Living umbrella provide a consistent brand experience to customers now.

Results

Based on the default Magento 2, the new solution still boasts a range of custom features and integrations top for enhanced ecommerce capabilities: — Tier Price extension to set tier prices for customizable products; — ‘Available in [qty] colours’ feature to show the amount of colour values on the category page; — Ekomi Reviews extension to allow customers leave feedback on the site; — Quick product deletion from the cart to let buyers remove items with one click; — Integration with SagePay and PayPal for secure online payments. Within a year, our team gradually moved 5 websites to the latest Magento 2 version available at that time. As the result of the transformation, the customer has achieved higher website performance and SEO rankings.
