Perficient and MonkeySports to Discuss Migration Strategy and Success During Adobe Summit 2021
SAINT LOUIS (April 26, 2021) – Perficient, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading global digital consultancy transforming the world’s largest enterprises and biggest brands, today announced the successful Magento 2 migration of a digital commerce experience for MonkeySports, a leading retailer of sporting equipment in the U.S. and Canada. The migration strategy and outcomes are the focus of a breakout session during the virtual Adobe Summit 2021, where Perficient will serve as a Showcase sponsor.
The retail industry is quickly evolving to deliver on the needs of the always-connected consumer, and maintaining an optimized commerce experience is essential to sustaining long-term success. MonkeySports needed to migrate its existing experience to Magento Commerce 2 in order to modernize its commerce capabilities, improve site functionality and performance, and support the growing business.
Perficient partnered with MonkeySports to complete the migration for both the Canadian and U.S. websites and integrate the websites with Product Information Management (PIM) software to centralize product data and disseminate it across channels. Additionally, Perficient and MonkeySports streamlined the product management and reward points processes and incorporated a configurator to allow customers to tailor their equipment when shopping online. The integrated website now features advanced functionality that reduces the time to introduce new products, improves the inventory update process, and enables more customization.
Within a few weeks of launching the optimized commerce experience, MonkeySports realized significant revenue growth, including a 50-percent sales increase in Canada and a 10-percent increase in the U.S.
“This migration has been the most stable website implementation our company has ever had,” said Ki Song, director of ecommerce, MonkeySports. “Our customers expect an intuitive digital experience with features designed with their convenience in mind, and this commerce solution delivers by providing an efficient and streamlined experience.”
Representatives from MonkeySports and Perficient will discuss the successful implementation during a breakout session at the virtual Adobe Summit 2021. Details about the presentation include:
- Session Title: Upgrading to Higher Ecommerce Sales and Efficiency
- Date/Time: Wednesday, April 28, at 2 p.m. PT
