The French company Kaporal has specialized in denim since its creation in 2004. It is around jeans that the brand has built a real success story. With a know-how acquired for nearly 15 years, Kaporal sells its articles in physical points of sale, at retailers but also directly via its e-commerce platform.
The brand has been using Magento 1 for a few years. As this platform is aging, the Kaporal team studied the options available to it to make its e-commerce site evolve as efficiently as possible while preparing for the future. The vulnerability of Magento 1 through the frontend is also a factor in accelerating change.
The migration to Magento 2 implies a complete redesign project, long, costly and risky. Regardless of the technical aspects, the mobilization of internal teams is often very trying, not to mention the risk of loss of turnover during the changeover.
The Kaporal team first turned to Front-Commerce to learn more about our solution and our know-how.
They discovered the best solution to meet their challenges:
The figures speak for themselves, use our headless technology divides the cost of migration by 5, the time to market by 4 while optimizing the customer experience on all media including mobile.
At the moment (February 2021) the redesign is in progress and we will publish the figures when the new website will be up and running.
« Front-Commerce is for us the most efficient solution to make our e-commerce platform evolve. The Front-Commerce team is available to help us both on the possibilities offered by the solution and also to support the development team. The functional coverage and the technical quality bring a real gain in productivity.
Front-Commerce will become a foundation of our e-commerce platform allowing it to evolve gradually while controlling our costs. We look forward to measuring the effects on conversion rates »
