Portfolio

Key clients: 

Mageworx — Magento bestseller extension developer Freigeist — German venture capital fund Strapworks — worldwide leader in straps manufacturing Renovator — largest Australian renovation store Ankerkraut — German spice seller

The customer, a famous online store for adults Spectrum Boutique, entrusted Staylime with migrating their store from WooCommerce to a more flexible Magento 2 and further customizing their next-gen ecommerce solution.

Initially the customer approached us with a set of ready-made design mockups. Our task was to implement a custom Magento theme leveraging the existing design. However, they gradually increased the scope of

our activities and eventually delegated the majority of development works to Staylime thanks to our in-depth technical knowledge.

The Spectrum Boutique store was designed with a particular focus on usability and visual appeal. Looking to make the user experience seamless and truly memorable, we embarked on the most creative yet proven frontend trends: eye-catching clickable icons, scroll-linked animations, intuitive and fast navigation.

Aimed at perfection, Staylime significantly refined the UI provided by the client and developed the following custom-built elements:

  • Interactive site menu;
  • Multi-parameter category sorting;
  • Easy site-wide search enabled by Elasticsearch;
  • Distinctive category page featuring sub-category product breakdown.

As part of migration from WooCommerce to Magento, we developed a custom migration tool on top of the commercial off-the-shelf script by Firebear Studio to ensure fault-free data transfer to Magento 2.

It took us two weeks to successfully complete the data migration: all the customer and product data was transferred with no loss or damage.

Working in close collaboration with the customer, Staylime thoroughly elaborated the requirements and developed the following custom functionality on top of the platform:

  • Product catalogue and menu;
  • Product reviews;
  • Product tags;
  • Wishlist;
  • Gift cards and coupons.

As a result, Spectrum Boutique revenue rose 15% in less than a month thanks to WooCommerce to Magento migration delivered by Staylime.

Magento theme design and migration for Meissner Image

Magento theme design and migration for Meissner

Staylime, a Magento development company, delivered a modern custom theme for Meissner Sewing Machine Company, a well-recognized producer and distributor of high-quality sewing machines and vacuums. Our team worked out a visually clean and simple design with sophisticated contrasting fonts, beautiful infographics and subtle animations. To appeal to visitors at the emotional

level, our designers used the palette of corporate colors that are well-familiar to Meissner’s customers and partners. We styled the extension to match Meissner brand identity and then configured all the necessary product categories and subcategories in a flexible dropdown menu. This approach allowed us to reduce the development efforts by three times in comparison with custom development yet ensure fast and intuitive navigation with little sacrifice. Besides theme development, the project scope included Magento migration, custom functionality development, and pre-live SEO. As part of the migration, our engineers transferred the existing data to a clean Magento 2 installation, making sure that none was lost or damaged. Thereafter, they carefully moved all the data from two Magento 1 extensions, Advanced Product Options and Class Manager, to Magento 2. To ensure seamless transfer of APO data, Staylime decided to build a custom migration script from scratch, as no suitable tools were available at that time. Our engineers opted for Mageworx SEO Suite Ultimate as an all-round SEO solution for Magento websites to help Meissner manage SEO activities and keep on improving website visibility further. As part of the pre-live SEO, Staylime also transferred the existing SEO settings to Magento 2. Well-designed from both technological and aesthetic perspectives, the new website for Meissner has been successfully launched by Staylime. We made it possible to deliver a professionally looking, full-fledged ecommerce solution, having walked a fine line between business requirements and budget limitations.
Magento 2 customization for Strapworks Image

Magento 2 customization for Strapworks

Strapworks is a strap manufacturer and supplier, serving 400,000 customers in the US. Strapworks managed their online store via Magento Commerce 2.1. They worked with a technology vendor that failed to make necessary changes to their product — Advanced Product Options extension. Strapworks also wanted to add new functionality and improve product configuration.

After online meetings with stakeholders, we offered some

changes to improve the Strapworks’ solution. Being impressed by our approach, they entrusted the project to our team.

We customized Magento 2 Advanced Product Options extension as per Strapworks’ requirements and added new features:

  • Dependent product options for flexible product configuration;
  • Custom option wizard for displaying products with multiple options and grouping these options into separate tabs (size, material);
  • Dynamic pricing for setting a rate for a product and associating this rate with other product options, which allows calculating a price based on many options;
  • Hidden price for hiding product prices and adding explanations that guide users (e.g., select a product to see the price);
  • Credit terms checkout for allowing clients to place an order and pay for it later;
  • Quick product import/export for importing/exporting products in only one click; 
  • Swatch options for replacing text descriptions on the preview with product icons.

For enhanced user experience, we offered a new website design concept. We also revised Advanced Product Options extension and eliminated excessive features. It helped increase the website speed by 30 points in Google PageSpeed Insights.

Due to the issues with Strapworks’ hosting provider, such as delays in responses, we offered and further performed migration to Amazon Web Services. Being satisfied with the project results, Strapworks offered to continue our business partnership.

Migration to Magento Commerce Cloud for Renovator Store Image

Migration to Magento Commerce Cloud for Renovator Store

Our customer, Renovator Store, provides premium renovation materials. They helped 40+ million homeowners improve their houses. For business management, the customer used Magento 1. Yet, it stopped meeting their growing business demands, so they decided to migrate to Magento Commerce Cloud.

Renovator Store required a smooth migration of their business-critical data, third-party extensions, and a WordPress blog. They held

a tender and chose Staylime for project implementation. We deployed a Magento 2 Commerce installation, using the Data Migration Tool.

We encountered many errors along the way, including mapping issues and corrupted records, which we successfully eliminated. Besides, we had an additional challenge: the customer’s migrated database had obsolete records due to which Magento 2 couldn’t start.

We solved this problem by cleaning the database and eliminating the old rubbish. To help the customer consolidate their entire architecture under a single platform, our team migrated their Wordpress blog to Aheadworks’ Magento 2 Blog extension, and their Reward Points extension to Magento Commerce’s native functionality. Renovator Store entrusted their store redesign to a local vendor for on-premise control and then got back to us with a new design for delta migration.

Renovator Store introduced new changes to their Magento 2 store although we advised against it. Therefore, we received the modified store’s database dump. To prevent errors, we deleted all obsolete data and performed a successful overnight delta migration. Then we returned the updated database dump to the customer’s dedicated support team and they made a switch to the new Magento 2 store. We successfully overcame all project challenges and migrated the customer’s store to Magento Commerce Cloud.

Magento 2 migration and theme design for a food delivery company Image

Magento 2 migration and theme design for a food delivery company

Little Lunch, an organic food delivery service, turned to Staylime to enhance presence and recognition by revamping their Magento 1 website. We migrated the store to Magento 2 and implemented a signature design theme along with custom functionality.

The solution boasts a one-of-a-kind interface built from scratch. With Magento 2 blank theme at base, the conventional template was tailored to support the new custom

features the store was to obtain. Prior to implementing the new design, we refined the mockups provided by the client so that they complied with UI/UX standards and conveyed the brand mission and values better.

Migration to Magento 2 was carried out in stages, as the customer updated the product catalogue quite significantly throughout the process. After the first migration cycle, we transferred the updated database to a clean Magento 2 and then moved it to the new store installation, having double-checked the correctness of data.

To ensure the solution meets business requirements precisely, we delivered a set of bespoke features on top of the default Magento 2 capabilities:

  • Customer report generation tool to collect customer data daily with no performance loss;
  • Custom widgets for product data (a slider, labels, a static title block);
  • Relevant recipes displayed on product pages;
  • Ability to add ordinary and double-sized products into one order;
  • Combo Pack wizard allowing clients to place orders for multi-product sets.

An easy-to-follow checkout was made possible by customizing the IWD Checkout extension. We also added Postfiliale and Packstation fields to checkout and personal accounts to facilitate completion of address forms.

With a catchy look and feel, comprehensive ecommerce functionality, and unmatched performance, Little Lunch website now provides an engaging and smooth user experience to buyers, contributing to ever-growing traffic and conversion rates.

Complex migration of Jaydee Living stores to Magento 2 Image

Complex migration of Jaydee Living stores to Magento 2

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.

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.

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, having also received an opportunity to expand the online business further at a significantly lower cost.

Magento 2 migration and ERP integration for Green Aqua store Image

Magento 2 migration and ERP integration for Green Aqua store

Staylime helped a Hungarian aquascaping retailer to migrate to Magento 2, enhance its capabilities, and integrate with an ERP system, whilst maintaining high SEO rankings.

Migration of the initial database to Magento 2 went smoothly as we used the Official Data Migration Tool to transfer business-critical data to a new installation.

Looking to improve customer experience with the store, we implemented extra

functionality leveraging a set of third-party extensions that covered the company’s requirements out-of-the-box at a reasonable cost:
  • Klevu Search facilitating fast navigation and better site usability via an AI-driven search engine; Yotpo Reviews to market products more effectively by collecting unique user-generated content;
  • Big Fish Payment Gateway providing for various online payment methods. To additionally protect payment transactions, 3D Secure support was also enabled;
  • Mageworx Reward Points to nurture customer loyalty and satisfaction through rewards programs;
  • SEO Suite Ultimate to simplify SEO management and tracking and so help Green Aqua rise to the top of search engine rankings.

Integration with ERP Symbol, a commercial solution for order management automation, was performed thanks to a custom ERP connector built by our engineers from scratch after an in-depth analysis of the legacy integration.

Before going live, we re-migrated the database to ensure the relevant product catalogue is in-sync with the Magento 1 version that the customer continued on updating throughout the development.

Staylime delivered the new website in-line with customer’s requirements, having conducted a series of pre-live SEO and performance checks before its going live. As the project goals were met and the challenges were tackled, Green Aqua decided to continue our collaboration, so we are now addressing their technology needs under the ongoing support framework.

Continuous Magento 1 support for Gewächshausplaza Image

Continuous Magento 1 support for Gewächshausplaza

Staylime takes on a pivotal Magento 1 upgrade project for one of the leading greenhouse retailers in Germany, resolving technical debt and increasing store performance as part of the company’s transition to Magento 2.

Given the critical importance of smooth UX for any ecommerce business, we got started with the interface renovation. Having rearranged the product and category pages, we then enabled a responsive layout to

match usability standards and best practices and ensure consistent viewing experience across multiple screens and operating systems.

Poor code quality affected the legacy store performance, causing slow page loading and high cart abandonment rate. Meeting the challenge, we refactored the code and gradually fixed the existing bugs to speed the website up and increase average session times. The latest security patches to date were also installed, further contributing to optimal performance and enhanced security.

As the customer planned on moving to Magento 2, we took care of necessary preparational activities within the project framework too. Thus, our team upgraded Advanced Product Options, one of the business-critical extensions in place. With no available documentation or Git commits, Staylime engineers had to alter the extension’s frontend and backend and handle unexpected changes in product templates introduced by the client.

Git repository was created by our team from the very beginning and the commit history was kept synced and clean throughout the entire project. Following the incremental approach, we migrated legacy product data to the updated extension and renewed its layout as appropriate.

Regardless of the dated and imperfect technology foundation, Staylime managed to freshen up Gewächshausplaza online store and achieve its stable performance and operation. Thanks to the improvements made, the website conversion has grown significantly, resulting in a 10% turnover increase.

Magento 2 migration of Gameday’s store Image

Magento 2 migration of Gameday’s store

Gameday offers branded sportswear for North-American League fans in Sweden. To operate their business, Gameday used Magento 1 that soon stopped meeting their requirements. They also hadn’t changed their store’s design since opening.

To move their business forward, Gameday decided to migrate to Magento 2 and launch a new website. They outsourced the project to our team due to great customer references and required

experience.

To ensure all assets were transferred smoothly, we installed a Magento 2 version on a staging environment and performed beta tests. Then we installed and configured the required extensions:

  • Mirasvit Help Desk for customer support
  • Social Login for logging in via social media
  • MLX-STORE Guest Wishlist for making wishlists offline
  • Magefan Blog for blog management

We also collaborated with Gameday’s local vendor, responsible for installing shipment data management and payment modules. The vendor failed to deliver the modules on time, so we finalized their installation and setup.

Staylime created a modern, intuitive website design. We built a mega-menu, dividing all leagues into first-level categories. For easy navigation, we implemented a filtering and sorting tool, utilizing Magento 2 Layered Navigation. To meet Gameday’s business requirements, we also built custom features:

  • Sports team-based / region-based product arrangement to add new regions and/or teams within a category and create product groups based on these attributes
  • Pop-up login form to log in via social media without redirection to a login page
  • Custom API to monitor website’s traffic via Facebook and Google analytics

For high website ranking, we conducted a pre-live SEO check and made necessary adjustments.

Magento 2 extension development for a design agency Image

Magento 2 extension development for a design agency

Staylime becomes a long-term Magento development partner for Todd Lininger Design. During the initial engagement, our team turned a legacy solution into a commercial Magento 2 extension that facilitates online education via convenient class and event management tools.

Given the product’s commercial nature, we paid particular attention to the architecture design to ensure its ability to adopt new features in the future.

Upon conducting an in-depth extension audit, our engineers worked out a proper architecture addressing the key scalability and performance considerations.

With loads of legacy information residing in the legacy database, we delivered a handy custom script to enable fault-free transfer of critical data to a newly built Magento 2 version.

Our team also redesigned the UI keeping common information architecture patterns of the initial solution in place to provide fluid experience to users, whilst ensuring their smooth onboarding.

Magento 2 Class Manager was significantly upgraded in terms of functionality, automating organizational and management aspects of the educational process. Magento-driven stores can now leverage the tool to create classes online, end-users, in turn, are able to:

  • Check class and seat availability;
  • Register for a class; View assigned instructors;
  • View class schedules and personal calendars;
  • Sign up for a wait list;
  • Track class history;
  • Receive email notifications; Participate in surveys.

A proper project management framework along with the iterative development and unit testing approach allowed us to deliver the full product version in 11 months, regardless of the ever-changing requirements and technical challenges on the way. The new Class Manager extension has inherited the best of its predecessor, yet received a highly scalable architecture and advanced functionality capabilities users will benefit from.

Magento 2 migration for Ankerkraut Image

Magento 2 migration for Ankerkraut

Staylime performed migration to Magento 2 for a German manufacturer and retailer of spice mixes and seasonings, redesigning the UI and introducing custom functionality to improve conversion.

With the help of the official Magento 2 migration tool, we incrementally migrated the store to a new platform, having run a set of tests during the process to ensure data consistency and accuracy. Looking to provide users with a

smooth and consistent browsing experience, our team developed an eye-catching custom design theme and optimized website’s performance across desktop and mobile devices.

Along with store’s migration and visual improvements, we revamped the product catalogue and delivered a range of new functional features, either built from scratch or customized:

  • Flexible product slider to enable display of new arrivals, bestsellers, limited time offers;
  • Storefront grid module to edit job opportunities and team members on the corresponding website pages;
  • Custom pricing algorithm to specify product price based on its weight or item package quantity as per German legislation;
  • Store locator to allow buyers see the nearest store on the map;
  • Single box for native coupon input fields and Amasty Gift Card’s inputs to speed up the checkout process and offload the page;
  • Email validation field to confirm users’ emails during the registration and checkout.

The upgraded store supports integration with a number of third-party systems, including payment gateways (PayPal, Amazon Pay) and delivery services (DHL), as well as an internal ERP system employed by the customer. The new website has been successfully launched in 3 months. Thanks to a brand-new design theme and enhanced functional capabilities, the bounce rate has dropped significantly, whilst conversion rates have increased shortly after the release.

Luicella’s Premium Ice Cream Store Image

Luicella’s Premium Ice Cream Store

Staylime assisted Luicella’s Ice Cream in building a new Magento 2 store for premium products and frozen desserts, delivering a remarkable design theme and bespoke functionality right before the client’s debut on a famous German TV show.

With no time to spare, we started the project off by transferring the existing order, product, and customer data to the new store. Implementing an eye-catching interface was crucial for

this project to enhance customer perception of the company — and we managed to introduce a lightweight and distinct design theme accurately reflecting Luicella’s values and differentiators. However, the task required additional effort from our side, as we first had to significantly refine the initial design mockups provided by the client.

Aiming at keeping the project budget reasonable and maintaining the strict delivery schedule, we leveraged all the out-of-the-box Magento 2 capabilities we could and built business-specific custom functionality on top. The new website now boasts:

  • A shipment restriction tool suggesting users from abroad to either remove perishable goods from cart or change the delivery destination to avoid product melting;
  • A combo pack configurator allowing buyers to purchase 6 ice cream flavours in a value pack;
  • A gift card editor making it possible to create and share personalized gift vouchers via email;
  • Advanced filtering & search helping users to easily browse through a wide product catalogue thanks to tag icons, search autocomplete, and layered navigation.

We delivered Luicella’s mission-critical project to a tight deadline, having ensured the website's high performance and seamless user experience for over 35,000 of concurrent visitors during the TV show. As a result of the store upgrade, as well as the episode success, the customer achieved a 30% conversion increase in just a few weeks.

Feedback summary: 

Staylime exceeded expectations by delivering an accurate, functional product in a short timeframe. The team's responsiveness and ability to correct issues promptly while producing great work set them apart from other vendors.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of LaVerino GmbH, a mail-order company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Staylime?

My former developer left and deactivated my plug-ins, so I couldn’t sell anything on the website. I needed help with developing a new one.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Using an extension in BASIC, Staylime programmed some modifications that allowed for advanced product options. It does calculations according to price metrics. 

What is the team composition?

I interacted with Jan (Chief Business Development Officer) for administration purposes, and Andrey (Project Manager) was the main point of contact for development.

How did you come to work with Staylime?

They were one of 2–3 companies offering advanced options.

How much have you invested with them?

I spent $4,800.

What is the status of this engagement?

Initial contact took place in September 2019. However, the project took place in April 2020, and it lasted two weeks.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

My former IT developer took nearly 6 months to get my website running. Staylime completed the entire project in two weeks, and they did it absolutely right. I never thought it would get going on the first run, but it did. I was really astonished. 

How did Staylime perform from a project management standpoint?

They were responsive, fixing any issues within a day.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team worked quickly and cleanly, and they were very knowledgeable. Staylime was better than the other vendors I’ve worked with. It was amazing, really.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t want them to change in any way.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

You don’t have to be totally clear in your description. Talk with them and they’ll make suggestions, advising you on how to make the best product in the end.

After the website that Staylime developed and designed was launched, the business saw a significant increase in sales. Their ability to listen to requests while delivering as needed sets them apart. They are an independent team that understands visual design, making them an ideal longterm partner.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the president of an adult online retailer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Staylime?

We decided that we needed to upgrade from our very first e-commerce product, which was built on WooCommerce because we had outgrown it. WooCommerce is a great platform for smaller businesses, but we were getting almost 200,000 site visits per month, making over $1 million in sales, and our catalog was very big. 

The database was no longer functioning because we didn’t have enough buffer. Because we’re an adult brand, we have a lot of concerns with privacy in general. So, the plug-in structures that were available didn’t take into consideration the level of anonymity and privacy we wanted.

We decided that Magento was the best platform to move to because of its encryption, security, and expansiveness. You can build anything you want on it. Our goal was to expand our store and make it big enough to accommodate $20 million–$100 million dollars in sales.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We came to them with very high-resolution wireframes and specs. And then we began the process. They upgraded our e-commerce platform on Magento. Additionally, Staylime custom built two extensions for us.

What is the team composition?

We worked with two people at a time. About halfway through the process, our first rep left the company, and we began working with another rep. 

How did you come to work with Staylime?

We found them on Clutch after looking for Magento developers. Throughout my research, I kept in mind that our brand is very visual. I went through a lot of different development companies that I thought had created products that were visually-appealing, classy, and smooth.

We isolated around 10 companies on Clutch, but only three of them were interested in working with us because of our sector. We got pitches from those three different companies that had varied costs and locations. 

Staylime made the best pitch and had the best price. They were already my first choice because of their previous work anyway. Their previous work wasn’t exactly what we were looking for, but it showed attention to detail in the transitions and animations in the UI, which was appealing to me.

How much have you invested with them?

The original bid was for around $35,000, but we spent closer to $75,000 because I added a lot of features. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with Staylime in October 2019. We launched the website in April 2020, but we’re still working with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

Our sales went up by almost 20% due to the new design of the website. Staylime does a great job and we’re going to continue working with them. I don’t imagine replacing them. I’ve worked with a couple of different offshore companies and some of them give you exactly what you ask for.

For example, if you ask for a door and a wall, those companies will give you a door and a wall. But if you ask Staylime for a door and a wall, they will give you a wall with a door in it, which is really what you wanted. 

They’re self-managing, they understand the goals that you want to achieve, and they will give you really good recommendations about the best way to achieve that result rather than allowing you to make mistakes in your own design.

How did Staylime perform from a project management standpoint?

We handed Staylime the wireframes and didn’t talk for 60 days afterward. They built the entire site on their own and then they brought me in. The team worked well and the first draft they gave us was really good. They come very close to meeting all deadlines, which is something you don't see often in this industry. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They truly understand visual design, which is rare. Other companies will just build something that works, but Staylime knew that, for us, the visual aesthetic was equally as important as the functionality. They rarely delivered something that didn’t look nice. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

Sometimes our communication was challenging. Getting answers to questions wasn’t always easy. I like to be made aware of what is going wrong, unlike other customers, and Staylime didn’t necessarily do that. 

They would just tell me that they were working on the problem. I wanted to know why something was going wrong because I like to be involved in the problem-solving process. They always solved the problem, so in the end, everything was fine. 

Additionally, since they’re in Belarus, they work according to different business hours, which is hard. This means that we’re always a day behind. I asked them if they’d be willing to stay up until 2pm instead, which would provide a lot more overlapping development time.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Think big because Staylime can probably build what you want.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the head of digital marketing for a development company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Staylime?

I needed help with branding.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They created the brand book and redesigned our website. They also coded the website and integrated it with the HubSpot tools that we’re currently using for our marketing needs. We’re planning on using them for another project this year.

What is the team composition?

Depending on the stage of the project, the number of team members varied. Eugene (Chief Product Officer, Staylime) worked on the brand identity and brand book. For the website design and templates, there were about three designers. For web development, there were two people coding in the backend and one QA specialist who checked and validated all the work.

How did you come to work with Staylime?

I worked with them at a previous company where they did some design work for us. So, I knew their team and knew that they were quite professional.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in May of 2019 until December of 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We’ve seen a positive influence on our website ranking since we’ve fixed a lot of technical website issues. The Staylime team managed to successfully move our website to a HubSpot CMS. 

Also, the conversion rate of our ads has improved because our website is new and shiny. The architecture, the text, and the layout design of the pages were built from the ground up. In addition, we tried to make the site user-friendly, which has had a positive influence on the website bounce rate and the number of pages users visit pers session.

How did Staylime perform from a project management standpoint?

They did a great job. The whole project was planned quite thoroughly, and everything was performed on time. They used an agile approach and adjusted things along the way. They never failed us or missed any deadlines.

They provided valuable feedback. When we went to implement some ideas that didn’t fit into the visual identity, they tried to guide us in terms of the UX/UI design. The provided valuable input along the way.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’m 100% satisfied with their work. They’re very detail-oriented, and they pay a lot of attention to everything.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The coordination among the teams could be improved. Once the brand book was ready, we needed some time to explain everything to the web design team. It took us a couple of weeks for them to get all the things right. I would recommend that they improve the mechanisms of interactions between teams. This didn’t have any negative influence on the whole project though. It’s just a friendly recommendation for them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If you want a really trendy and modern web design, they’re definitely the right people to go to. They focus mainly on making custom themes and designs with Magento. They can really create a distinctive visual digital identity for your business. 

In terms of combining design, visual identity, and coding, they’re the best team to go to because they have deep and wide expertise in all three domains. They can successfully combine them together and help your e-commerce business skyrocket.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a PR partner at Bulba Ventures, a startup investment company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Staylime?

We needed help building our corporate website. We were one of the first venture companies launching in Belarus. We needed our website to stand out, speak boldly about what we do, and translate our mission.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They were responsible for developing the design concept for the website and then developed the actual website. They did everything from scratch. They provided wireframes and sketches. We’re constantly having them do minor edits to the website and adding new features. The team has been very helpful to continue to help us design and build those features.

What is the team composition?

I communicated with the manager on their side. There were 4-5 people working on the project.

How did you come to work with Staylime?

They were recommended to us by one of our partners from the business network. They had worked on a website for them. We liked it and we felt that it would be a good fit for us well.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent over $50,000 on the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2018, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The work was really thorough, delivered on time, and everything we needed was delivered. Since the website went live, it's attracted a lot of traffic. We’ve received a lot of great feedback between the design community in Belarus. We have more than 1,500 unique visitors to our website for a month, which is a very good number for us.

How did Staylime perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management is great. Their communication is really structured and on point. Whenever we needed something or had any questions, they were always very helpful in delivering the right answers and providing us with the information we needed. I like to keep it simple. We communicate mostly via email. I was given access to Figma to see any sketches I needed.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're very flexible when it comes to the speed of the process. We needed the project to be delivered really fast. The team was really on point in taking into account everything we wanted to have on the website. They were really open to take our vision and build a great product that works super well for us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The process was really smooth, so there’s nothing I would change. All our team is very happy about it.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I suggest going for it. They are a very creative and collaborative team. They’re young and very talented professionals. We’re a happy customer.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Paralect, a digital product engineering company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Staylime?

We needed someone to design and develop our website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Coding in HTML, their team designed our website as well as other marketing materials. They established an effective aesthetic for our website, which is adaptable to all screen sizes. It adheres to our branding guidelines. It’s functional and feels very fresh.

Their key deliverable was a product that we could utilize in our marketing campaigns, and they produced it from scratch. We’ve kept them on board for content creation as we continue to expand our operations.

What is the team composition?

We work with a team of at least 6 people. Their team is comprised of developers, designers, and illustrators. We also worked with their director.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June 2018, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They professionally executed our website. The team delivered a complete solution: designs, animations, and transitions, all of which culminate in something that feels like a truly complete product. They did an excellent job, and we’re still using the design for our newer pages.

The key metrics for us are the number of closed leads, and conversions have doubled or tripled for us. I also think that we receive more requests for design services. While it’s a completely different area for us, the website has helped us explore the idea of offering design services, as well.

How did Staylime perform from a project management standpoint?

They were exceedingly professional. They ensured that we were consistently updated on project progress. We knew the status of each task. They also offered suggestions and solutions that were outside of our direct ask, which we appreciated. They were very proactive in that way.

What did you find most impressive about them?

While we’ve worked with several other companies, Staylime stands out due to the quality of their work. They deliver top-notch results.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, there’s nothing I’d have them improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Give them enough freedom so that they can come up with ideas that are the best for you. They operate optimally when they have a bit of a free rein, and you can trust their decisions.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Green Aqua is one of the leading retail services in the aquarium industry. It is founded back in 2009. Our company provides retail service, wholesale, manufacturing, client on-site services, and media solutions. I am one of the founders and managing director of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Staylime?

We've been using Magento for our e-commerce site. To be up to date with the latest technology we needed to upgrade our Magento website and in connection with that many other services as well. Our ERP integration, custom developments, the frontend as well as many backend custom functions. Needed a performance upgrade, SEO services, and Staylime was the best partner for that.

What were your goals for this project?

In the past 10 years, we heavily customized our website. This had many advantages, but since the new Magento 2 engine had a completely different data structure the biggest problem and challenge was to port over all the existing data, match the old functionality or replace them with a better one. Rewrite the ERP synchronization between our website and the ERP system from the ground up.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We've been working with Staylime and Mageworx for a couple of years now. Finding a reliable Magento developer partner is always a challenge. Especially if you're thinking about a long-term partnership. We've been lucky enough to find them a few years ago and they proved their excellent service in many cases. They have skilled staff, specialists who really help to solve your issues.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Initially, we upgraded the core functionality of our website with many of their Magento extensions. Since they were compatible with each other this was the best decision we made. Magento data migration from version 1 to the latest version 2 was the next project. Here we needed not only the code data of the past 10 years but all additional data too like a reward system, gift card data, and other existing customizations.

One of the most important parts was ERP synchronization. This is a core thing for our team and was crucial to solving the data sync between the systems to save time on order processing and eliminate the extra manual work. Unfortunately, Magento's earlier edition is completely different. So they had to build the sync tool from the ground up and do all internal testings, QC for this project before the launch.

With the change not only the data needed to be moved, but the whole front end replaced. To be familiar to our existing users/customers they had to customize the theme. Since all challenges, compatibility issues and other technical problems solved professionally, they helped to optimize our site, tweak everything to perform better for search engines. And they implemented an advanced cache technology.

What was the team composition?

We've been in contact with 2 project managers on the project and they helped to keep everything on track on the full scope. We've used a project management system and with this everything was smooth and transparent. The communication was really quick in between us.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

The site is launched a few weeks ago, but with the upgrade, we're able to process orders much quicker. Product management and administration are now needed 30% less effort on our side. The site performs much better so the manual task can be done faster. With this, we saved a lot of time.

Clients are happy that with such a big change they have all the existing information, rewards etc in hand and no need long learning curves to operate the site. The new platform opens up new gates for us to use more advanced services from now.

We're more secured thanks to all the implemented functions. And since we had just a very little downtime with the change we've not lost any business in the crucial upgrade time. I am sure the numbers will prove that we made a good decision with the change in the upcoming high season.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We had 2 project managers and if any of them was not available the other project manager helped out with all of our upcoming questions and issues. We've used Trello boards for quick communication and management. Every single task, a request was checked out and made the whole process transparent between the developers and our staff.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

All the development work went through the project managers so we not needed to work with developers at all. The whole work was done on a staging environment and ported only to the live site when they were done. With this, we minimized the downtime. With such a big change, I was really surprised how smooth the launch was. Enjoyed the whole process.

Are there any areas for improvement?

It is not easy to tell anything. Of course, as a client would be ideal to have things ready in a very short time, but we frequently underestimate the required work and effort that is needed for such a change. I do not have anything that I would change. Only can hope we will have a chance to work in the future too.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the website and digital marketing manager for HI Vis Heroes and Gorilla Workwear. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Staylime?

We hired Staylime for a range of development tasks that improve our website's customer journey and usability. Each of these tasks involves a lot of prior discussion, planning, and specification. They have mainly helped us duplicate and launch our site under a new branding scheme.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals were to improve the overall look and feel of our site while increasing its usability, functionality, and performance.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We selected Staylime because they were Magento experts. We reached out to see if they were interested in this project, then discussed it through emails and phone calls. We decided that Staylime was an ideal partner for our full-cycle project.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We carefully itemize and document tasks, and they develop the best solution for our requirements. They have successfully built many custom frontend development solutions that improve the user journey and functionality of the site.

Some of these changes are small design adjustments, such as color schemes and fonts. Other projects involve in-depth research and custom solutions, such as setting up a matrix order pricing system for configurable products.

What was the team composition?

Two Staylime developers act as our main points of contact.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Their work is fantastic. They create, implement, and test each task to deliver a more responsive, easy-to-use, and navigable website. They have helped us prepare a new site and dramatically improve our existing site. In-house testing shows that the site is significantly more usable and user-friendly.

When the website launches in the next two weeks, these improvements will become more apparent. Their changes have improved the UX of our site. If the customer has a pleasant shopping experience, they're likely to return and spend more. 

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They manage the project through various communication methods. They initially used phone calls and emails, then transitioned to Skype chat, a day-to-day Trello board, and a weekly email update. This is fairly effective. It keeps everyone in the loop with their progress, queries, and task outlines.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I'm impressed by their ability to understand our problems. Then, they can interpret them and develop solutions in a timely manner.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Our only suggestion would be to ask questions and eliminate assumptions when we don't fully understand the problem. At one point, we asked to select multiple sizes of one product. They implemented the fix on simple products, but our product was configurable, so the fix was unusable and redundant. If they had asked more questions at first, we would have realized that the suggested fix wasn't viable.

They overhauled the project and category pages, widened the site to enhance visibility on bigger screens, and implemented and migrated old product options to the new advanced configurable options. They also fixed numerous bugs and enhanced the site’s overall performance, including improvements to caching. They prepared us for a transition from Magento 1 to Magento 2.

What was the team composition?

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a senior project manager for Solar Jet Productions LLC. We’re a small web and print marketing company that concentrates on e-commerce clients in the foodservice industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Staylime?

One of our clients needed to transition from Magento 1 to Magento 2. The project was difficult because we had done substantial custom code for the client’s Magento 1 website. This code needed to work with the major updates in the Magento 2 platform. We hired Staylime to execute the migration.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Although Magento is natively a B2C platform, the client uses the solution for its B2B distribution company. The client’s sales representatives switch between dozens of accounts to place orders that appear on behalf of each end customer. However, each order is tied to the specific representative.

Staylime built custom modules for the Magento 2 platform. These modules enabled the client to operate forced user logins; the client’s sales representatives leverage this feature to process orders as different users. Our team did custom work on a module to the customer’s needs.

How did you come to work with Staylime?

Staylime is a certified developer of Magento modules and we had used their extensions for a different customer. We hired the team because they could execute custom development in addition to extensions.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $20,000 via an upfront payment.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from May–August 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Staylime sent us periodic releases, which functioned well. The team then met the goals and objectives we set with minimal oversight. We had one minor misunderstanding, but, that’s to be expected with such a complex project. We did not encounter any major flaws or problems.

How did Staylime perform from a project management standpoint?

The project was relaxed because we did not require significant back and forth. Consequently, we didn’t integrate Staylime into our project management system.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They hit the ground running and delivered good value. We appreciated the high-quality result.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Since we had to recalibrate this project slightly, I would advise clients to define goals clearly. When writing the scope, ask whether a third party could readily follow the requirements.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the director of Jaydee Living. We’re an e-commerce specialist that provides products to the B2B sector.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Staylime?

We hired Staylime/MageWorx to develop custom themes and do SEO audits for four Magento websites.

What were your goals for this project?

The goals were to maintain, if not improve, our websites' organic rankings while providing a more user-friendly and seamless way for clients to purchase products.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Staylime/MageWorx had already developed a few extensions for another of our Magento sites. The support and expertise they demonstrated in those instances, coupled with the can-do attitude of their proposal for the current project, swung the decision their way.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They’re developing four custom themes, each with slight variations, and will deploy them on our sites. They’re also responsible for an SEO audit to ensure all settings, URLs, redirects, meta titles, and descriptions are consistent between websites. Occasionally, we'll also ask them to produce extensions and make site modifications.  

What was the team composition?

I work with Andrew (Project Manager, Staylime/MageWorx) and Arthur (Client Relations Manager, Staylime/MageWorx). Andrew has been my main point of contact. I find him to be extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We’ve only completed two of the four websites so far, but I expect to see statistical improvement in the next few months. 

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Arthur initially handled project management, but he handed that responsibility over to Andrew. Despite stepping back, Arthur is still available via Skype and email. Andrew has been so capable that we’ve only had to speak with Arthur a few times.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Everyone I’ve worked with has been friendly and consistent with their communication. They’ve gone out of their way to make me happy, which helps me trust that they’ll deliver.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, not that I can think of. If I do have a problem though, our open communication will make it easy to solve.
