This was a strategic move to further enhance BlueSky’s Magento capabilities while leveraging an existing wealth of B2B, B2C, and B2B2C enterprise commerce implementation experience. Magento is a dynamic and fast-moving platform which capably addresses needs of today’s commerce business. BlueSky has a history of providing merchants with solutions that solve business challenges and deliver results. When a major retailer struggled with slowing sales and providing customers a 360-degree view of interactions across all channels they turned to long time partner BlueSky for assistance. BlueSky helped devise and execute a plan which improved customer’s visibility to purchases and simplify business processes by migrating their storefront to the Cloud. Results included increasing of in-store sales and at the same time, reduced call center activities 90% by introducing capabilities such as a self-service Buy Online Pickup In-Store (BOPIS) option.
Trivantage, a large fabric manufacturer and distributor, wanted to drive growth by marketing to valuable new segments, and better shape customer experiences on any device. Trivantage partnered with BlueSky in an across the board engagement, bringing updated tools and experience to Trivantage’s online commerce business. The resulting solution included fully integrated post-order management and a new storefront which served to significantly increase mobile traffic and revenue.
