If you’ve been in business for over 100 years, there’s going to be some legacy (or missing) processes that need to be addressed. Migrating to a new platform presented a great opportunity to address this with Glik’s. Our team traveled to Glik's headquarters and met with various departments and key stakeholders. This gave us insight into the ways and the whys behind their operations, marketing efforts, and overall approach to selling online and in-person. During our discovery process we identified a few key areas to address: paper process that leaves potential for error, a missing warehouse management system, difficulty merchandising the website, and data quality issues.
to Shopify Plus Migration
Do you need help migrating to Shopify Plus? Let's talk
When migrating between two systems, data formats rarely (read never) match perfectly. Glik’s existing AbleCommerce system was not able to support API connections for transferring the data directly into Shopify. Instead, our team needed to export all data, reformat using our super advanced spreadsheeting skills, and then utilize the powerful Shopify Plus' Transporter application. Transporter actually allows the migration of large data sets into Shopify Plus very quickly. Win!
A major aspect of this project was centered around Aptos, which powers Glik’s ERP, CRM, and accounting systems. We were tasked with building a custom application that seamlessly moves inventory into Shopify Plus, as well as customer and order data back into Aptos. Anyone else excited to work with tab-delimited files?
It was important for this process to run consistently with a high-level of data integrity to avoid inventory issues at the warehouse or accounting discrepancies. This application was the first-of-its-kind between Aptos to Shopify Plus. Glik’s team is now setup to move faster with more reliable data between the ecommerce store and their retail and back-of-house operations.
Custom Shopify Theme
No migration to Shopify Plus would be complete without a custom Shopify theme, right? In order to complete this transition and overhaul Glik’s was quite an under-taking. We designed and developed feature-rich Shopify theme which was properly optimized for performance and marketing goals.
We utilized unique landing page layouts, gave the ability to add promotional content on collections with robust filtering, and even implemented our own Rebase application to create shoppable social media galleries, wishlist features, and even a store locator. The end result is something Glik’s can be proud of and that will continue to grow alongside them for years to come.
Retail Sales Application
Through Glik’s 60+ retail stores there are a lot of touchpoints with theirs customers, which also gives more possibilities that an exact product/size is not in-stock at a particular store. To help capture those potentially lost sales, our team built a Shopify-powered in-store sales application that allows Glik’s staff to create an order and process the payment for the customer.
This application is powered by Shopify’s Storefront API and React, making it both extremely fast and reaching feature-parity with the online store. Orders are routed back to the warehouse and either fulfilled directly to the customer or to a Glik’s retail store for pickup.
