A beautiful solution, in just three months
SPACE.NK, a leading luxury beauty boutique, started business in 1993 with a single store in London’s Covent Garden. Since then, it has evolved to become an internationally respected brand with a number of physical stores across the UK and US, all supported by a significant online presence.
SPACE.NK required a new ecommerce platform to be rolled out within four months, unprecedented for a project of this scope. An international brand this size could not afford to be in a transitional period for too long, and its current website wasn’t reflecting the company’s ideals. All of which required the Astound development team to streamline the migration progress and work in close collaboration with SPACE.NK’s team in a series of development ‘sprints’.
As a direct result of the website redesign and Salesforce Commerce Cloud (formerly Demandware) migration, SPACE.NK saw conversions increase across the board – led by a dramatic improvement to the overall user experience. The new ecommerce platform reduced load times by 50%. It also improved stability and speed by the nature of having a single online presence rather than four different sites, and in doing so enhanced the user experience on mobile and tablet devices.
In Their Own Words
The project was a complete success, not only in terms of the results it delivered but also the speed at which Astound made this happen.Jez WilsonHead of Ecommerce Development, SPACE.NK
