Artware Editions

Assignment:

Volusion to Shopify migration

Developer Bo Yoon
Project Manager Thor Berntsson

Overview

New York based art dealers carrying decorative and functional everyday collector pieces. Artware Editions represent some of the modern art world’s biggest names offering pieces to start or complete any eclectic collection. From tables to table ware each piece makes a statement and will define any home as that of the passionate art owner. The Owners of Artware Editions needed a full migration from Volusion to Shopify including all SKU’s, variants, customer data, and order histories.

Challenge

Artware Edition wanted to move to a platform that would respond quicker on the back end. Load times of the admin created time commitments for simple changes the lead to many frustrations on Volusion. An added challenge was to keep the overall look and feel of their Volusion site, but making the Shopify version fully responsive. Plus migrating a database of over 30k customers the majority of which had volusion specific tagging that needed to be translated to fit into Shopify’s data base.

Solution

We decided to choose a template augmentation as the solution to control costs as there was substantial data migration that would tear into much of the clients budget. Were were able to use much of the chosen template’s collection and product pages, which allowed us to focus on making the homepage recognizable as the client’s site their users were used to while working within the client’s budget.

User Experience

User experience on this migration focused around a mobile experience that was quite different than what you would see on desktop and the usability Also updating the appeal of the product pages while translating a data table that had several key differences than allowed on Shopify. The end result was something we were proud of and the client very happy we were able to solve.
