GetPoms.com is a global supplier of pom-poms; helping communities and schools around the world celebrate events with affordable stock and custom poms, streamers, megaphones and other cheer-related products. Their products can be customized to meet the needs of their customers, as well as purchased in bulk to accommodate the needs of any team or event.
When GetPoms.com built their site on Magento in 2011, their intention was to have an easy to manage, unique ecommerce site that allowed its customers to easily find and purchase cheer products and poms. Over the years, however, Magento had become more difficult to update and manage, requiring custom code to resolve issues that were occurring within the site and provide regular updates.
To create a strategic game plan to help bring the vision for their new, easy-to-use site to life. The new GetPoms.com website should allow sales and marketing teams to modify and update their website efficiently. Increase online revenue and omnichannel abilities, elevate brand perception, and improve the overall UX and site performance.
Adobe acquired Magento and decided to end support for all versions of Magento1 in 2020 and to create Magento 2 a new platform with new architecture-Magneto. GetPoms.com was utilizing Magento 1; yielding higher than expected cost of ownership and a complexity to maintain and modify their product listings and digital campaigns. Team members were unable to easily use Magento 1 and required a more user-friendly platform. Other ecommerce platforms such as Shopify and Magento 2 were evaluated, but were not able to meet the unique requirements and needs of GetPoms.com.
If you need a new website or just to refresh your old one, the eCommerce experts at ioVista are outstanding to work with. We switched from Magento 1 to BigCommerce and couldn’t be more pleased. The ioVista team walked us through the entire process step by step. They listened to our concerns along the way and were able to fix or work around most all of our issues. We are very happy and proud of the results. Now, our site is so easy-to-use both for our customers and for us. We are able to make edits quite easily on the back-end, which is super convenient and a feature we love. We highly recommend ioVista. They will build a beautiful, functional website for a fair price.
