The Challenge.

Migrate and optimize a website without interrupting the customer experience.

While the primary goal was migrating the website — including all customer data, product information, and order histories — from  Magento 1 Open Source to Magento 2 Commerce Cloud (Enterprise), Samuel Hubbard Shoe Co. and Vonnda identified the opportunities to make the site more robust, easier to

use, and more tailored to their customers. We found ways to efficiently and seamlessly migrate the website — all while building custom integrations and extensions to better suit Samuel Hubbard’s and their customer’s needs.

The Solution.

Custom solutions for unparalleled customer experience.

Once we had that migration plan in place, we looked for ways to improve the customer experience, site performance, and back-end capabilities.

The Results.

A better experience for customers. A more robust website for Samuel Hubbard Shoes.

The custom Magento development and streamlined design create a better web experience for Samuel Hubbard Shoes customers and employees alike. The successful migration from Magento 1 to Magento 2 gives Samuel Hubbard Shoes an easier-to-use, faster ecommerce experience along with more robust and flexible merchandise management.

The Challange

Break the mold, but stay in compliance

Cameron Hughes Wine is acclaimed for its innovative business model and premium wines. But their website’s closed platform limited their direct-to-consumer sales potential. They needed a new site that was more engaging, more user-friendly, and more functional. But it wasn’t as easy as just building a new site — any changes to the

website’s appearance, features or functionality had to comply with strict regulations governing online alcohol sales.

The Solution.

Unleashing the power of ShipCompliant + Magento

We started by redesigning the site to make it responsive, visually engaging and intuitive. But more importantly, we needed to develop a way to comply with online alcohol sale regulations. ShipCompliant is an automated, easy-to-use alcohol compliance tool. Magento is a powerful ecommerce platform. By integrating the two, we were able to build a new site that customers love and that delivers results — featuring automated fulfillment processing, wine club management, custom search and checkout, dealer locator and targeted promotional content.

The Results.

The new Cameron Hughes website is a splashing success

The new website, built on Magento Enterprise, generates high-volume sales and truly reflects the brand’s value and promise. The ShipCompliant integration makes it easy for Cameron Hughes to stay compliant with online liquor sales regulations. And the responsive site is much more user-friendly on phones and tablets. Numbers tell the whole story: 126% increase in users, 43% more page views, and a 35% jump in phone and tablet revenues.

Close Pegase

Clos Pegase is a luxury estate winery located in Napa Valley, California, established in 1983. The estate was designed through the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMoMA) by Michael Graves. The vineyard includes a tasting room, wine caverns, private residence, vineyards, and views of Mount Saint Helena, located just outside of Calistoga.

Their business revolves mostly around the tasting rooms and private tours of the

winemaking facilities, but also online sales of specialty wines and reservations for tastings.

They wanted to keep the main focus on visiting the estate but also feature their hand-crafted wines to increase their online sales and promote the brand.

The look and feel of the website needed to reflect the brand history as a luxury wine destination, but also appeal to the younger visitors who have become a sought after demographic in Napa Valley.

Feedback summary: 

Vonnda delivered a streamlined website that impressed internal stakeholders. The team is transparent and responsive to resolve technical challenges rapidly no matter the time of day. They provide effective solutions and accommodate the needs of the partnership, which ensures a valuable engagement.

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 a co-owner and the CEO of SproutPeople. We’re a small business that sells seeds and supplies for growing crops at home.

We established a website in 1996 to share our knowledge as professional growers. At that point, we’d only been active for three years. However, we’d grown and felt that we had the knowledge to share. We’ve continued that as the internet has grown.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Vonnda?

I managed the website for 12 years but it was difficult to keep up with the technology and perform in my role. A local web design company upgraded our shopping cart and introduced us to Magento, but they weren’t a long-term partner. We needed an agency to support our site on an ongoing basis.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Vonnda redesigned our enormous website, which required a lot of work. The agency that moved us to Magento left a mess, so the Vonnda team had to clean up our site.

Their team rebuilt our site, which housed 400 pages of information. They stuck with Magento but changed the entire system to be more workable. Their team also developed visual plug-ins for Magento and made a much friendlier interface.

Their team organized our site’s data including text and pictures. Their team redesigned pages that required lots of scrolling. Vonnda cleaned up the pages using tabs, which made the site less daunting to visit.

Their team also moved our email to a new server and continues to manage our SEO efforts. Vonnda implemented Google Analytics, which their team monitors. They also continue to build out the website.

What is the team composition?

We’ve worked with Mark (CEO) and Collin (Linux System Administrator). We also worked with Mark’s partner at the time on our SEO efforts.

How did you come to work with Vonnda?

I searched online for Magento companies and looked through directories. I thought it was important to meet in-person if necessary, so I was particularly interested in working with a local agency. I called Vonnda and talked with Mark for probably an hour.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $30,000 so far. Our business shrunk for a while. Mark took it upon himself to help us and didn’t charge us for certain work because he wanted us to succeed. That meant the world to us. We stabilized prior to the pandemic and started paying Vonnda a retainer. We prefer to pay because we get better service that way.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Vonnda in 2013, and our engagement’s ongoing

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They put a significant amount of effort into helping us even though we had little technology behind us. Their team turned our site into a modern and clean platform, which was an incredible undertaking. They’re our only tech partner, so their team takes on many projects.

How did Vonnda perform from a project management standpoint?

Vonnda uses Google Docs and other sharing tools. They keep us up to date on their efforts. We’re small, so we have to wait for projects more than we want to. 

We can contact Mark at any time. On occasion, he’s helped us at midnight. He’ll spin up the computer and start spewing ideas. Before we know it, he’s taken care of the problem.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their problem-solving skills always strike me. In addition to redesigning our website, Vonnda has handled all of the crises that have come up such as breaks or hacks. Their team communicates the problems clearly and solves the problems quickly, which has been huge. It's been key to our relationship that they’ve prioritized our business over their income and don’t care what time it is when helping us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Over the last 12 months, they’ve become more accessible and communicative.  

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I don’t think there’s any way to get better service than what they offer. I don’t think I could actually give advice without context. Vonnda cares about our business. They’ve done more for us than they’ve been compensated for financially.

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 director of e-commerce for Samuel Hubbard Shoe Co.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Vonnda?

Vonnda was employed by our company as our main development team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Vonnda helps with writing code for our B2C website. Their team maintains and develops the site. They provide frontend design services as well as manage frontend and backend development. 

Their team also completely re-platformed our website from Magento 1 to Magento 2.  Before we transitioned, their team did our server architecture too.

What is the team composition?

I work with an account manager and two developers. I’ve also worked with Mark (Founder & CEO) on development projects.  

How did you come to work with Vonnda?

Vonnda was hired by our company about 4–5 months before I came on board. My CEO wanted a local, smaller sized firm.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend anywhere between $15,000–$40,000 a month. When we switched to Magento 2, we spent about $250,000 over the course of a couple of months.  

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them around November 2017 and the partnership’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re satisfied with their work. Magento 2 was a new platform for both of our teams. We were happy with their documentation as well as the speed at which they got the project done. Their efficiency is in part due to the fact that they know our business so well.

How did Vonnda perform from a project management standpoint?

We meet weekly depending on the project. Their project management’s good. We have a project manager from their team who manages their development schedule.

I don’t have to get into the details of sprints, which is nice. While I can access JIRA, our project manager creates reports in Google Sheets where we keep track of the project. It’s easier to navigate when I’m not concerned about the level of detail that goes into each ticket.

Their team’s really responsive, and that’s a big deal to me. We have a small e-commerce department, so they’re our developers basically.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their communication’s one of their best qualities. If I have an emergency, I can get a hold of their team at any time of the day. I appreciate their communication and personal touch.

They’re really great people, so I like working with them. It feels like more than a business partnership. At this point, their team feels like co-workers. I’ve been happy with them over the 2.5 years, which is great because I didn’t choose them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It's not a problem but it's important to be aware that a small boutique firm will have competing priorities from other clients. You have to plan well to make sure that your development’s done in a timely manner. They’re not a company that has 100 developers working on a project.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Know that you’re partnering with a smaller firm, not a company that enlists hundreds of resources. You get higher quality work because of that. I’ve worked with the same developers for two years. You also solve problems faster when people know the code in and out.
