As one of the largest wildlife and birdfood manufacturers in Europe, CJ Wildlife wanted to extend their reach to as many new markets as possible. They already sell to 17 European countries and therefore needed a Magento multi-store that could handle shared orders, various languages and different currencies.
We designed a fantastic new store that could present different users with a tailored store view depending on their language and currency. The site is fully integrated with Sage 1000 via custom APIs to guarantee seamless data synchronisation between internal systems and Magento.
Claire from CJ Wildlife had this to say about us:
'We have been working with Media Lounge for 3 years now and they have been extremely helpful both practically and in giving advice on Magento (which we had not used before).
In this time, we’ve converted 7 shops to Magento from other platforms and launched 2 brand new ones. We also have a further 2 re-platforming projects underway at the moment and another new shop project about to start. These projects have thrown up a lot of challenges (various currencies, languages and customs) but we’ve always got there and for this we have to say a big thank you to Media Lounge for their patience and expertise.'
As one of the UK's leading online retailer of gas and electric fires, Superior Fires came to us with a vision for an image-focused eCommerce store that focused on delivering a fantastic user experience.
This site is brilliantly functional and guides customers through each step to their ideal purchase. It's a store that works perfectly across all devices and was voted the Wirehive 100 'eCommerce Site Of The Year 2016'.
Ben Upham, Creative Design Manager at Superior Fires, had this to say:
'We’ve been working with Media Lounge since 2014 with the Superior Fires Magento store and more recently our corporate website, AdWords management and ongoing SEO campaign.
The project ran smoothly and was launched on time and budget. Winning the Wirehive 100 eCommerce Site of the Year award was a fantastic achievement for everyone - the guys worked really hard and produced a beautiful website that delivers results.'

With as much passion for fashion as we have for eCommerce, Highstreet Oulet approached us looking for one thing - to create a brand new online store that would increase conversions and grow their business in the long term.
Despite huge competition in the fashion industry, we were able to develop a stylish site that has brought a huge increase in sales.
Julie Burden, owner of Highstreet Outlet, had this to say about us:
'We have been working with Media Lounge for 4 years now and most recently they have developed our M2 site.
I think the most important thing about these guys is that they just 'get it' – they have their own eCommerce websites and they really understand what you need to do to grow a successful site.
We had a massive inventory of products to import from our M1 site, which was so much more challenging than we ever anticipated and where I really didn’t think it would be possible at one stage, they didn’t give up until it was done.
The support is A1, the development and design team are excellent - basically, it’s a bunch of talented, dedicated individuals who are very knowledgeable and really great to work with. Our own technical knowledge is limited but we always felt that we could ask those 'stupid questions'.
Overall, developing our new site ended up to be a really enjoyable experience, but most importantly it has grown our business - so thank you!'
"They’re very honest and trustworthy."

Despite only being a short time since the new website went live, the clothing retailer is already seeing 500% improvement year-over-year. The team at Media Lounge is trustworthy and honest, setting their clients up for success by going the extra mile to explain things to them.
A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.
Introduce your business and what you do there.
I’m the manager of Lakeland Country, a clothing retailer. We have brick-and-mortar stores as well as online.
What challenge were you trying to address with Media Lounge?
We started on eBay, then we developed our own website. We needed the website to be bigger and improved so we went to Media Lounge.
What was the scope of their involvement?
They constructed a brand-new website for us using BigCommerce. We hadn’t used BigCommerce before, so they had to build the site from scratch. They also had third-party stock integration, transferring all of our stock from eBay to InkFrog, then from InkFrog to BigCommerce.
They handled everything from scratch. This included designing the logo, the front pages, the shop, the e-commerce pages, the product page design, the returns— everything.
The relationship is ongoing. Not only are they providing maintenance and SEO, but they also set up GoogleAds for us. We’ve been doing other campaigns with them on Facebook and Instagram. We do the posts, but they helped us set up the business accounts.
What is the team composition?
We had one main designer, and then he had more developers behind him. I always just spoke to our designer and account manager.
How did you come to work with Media Lounge?
We’ve been very successful on eBay, but not on the web. Our largest competitor was very successful on the web, but not on eBay. We reached out to their web provider, Media Lounge, to see if they could work with us on our web presence.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent £15,000 (approximately $21,000 USD), including VAT.
What is the status of this engagement?
We’ve been working with them since August 2020.
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
I haven’t got exact figures, but our figures have had a sizable increase — about five times year-over-year. This is impressive because it typically takes a while to see changes with this.
How did Media Lounge perform from a project management standpoint?
We worked with phone or video calls, sometimes e-mail.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They weren’t just charging us to build a website. They also showed me how to use it and change it. Many companies won’t be as patient. I even got little video tutorials on how to do things, which was very kind of them. I can go back to the videos, without having to ask a developer to do it. They’re very honest and trustworthy.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No, they were fantastic.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
All businesses will grow massively because of them. Be prepared to grow and grow with them.
