Overview

La Sportiva is a family owned outdoor sports and recreation equipment retailer founded in Italy in 1928. They provide high quality apparel and equipment for outdoor enthusiasts around the world, with a focus on mountain sports such as rock climbing and skiing.

The Challenge

La Sportiva was struggling to make the most out of Magento’s features needed help to optimize their on-site search functionality. They were utilizing Google Analytics to gain better understanding of customer behavior, but experienced difficulty putting their data into practice. Additionally, they also needed assistance in reworking their eCommerce website to meet ADA compliance.

The Solution

To help La Sportiva gain better understanding of their platform and analytics, Forix stepped in to provide managed services and ongoing support to this Italian outdoor industry eCommerce business. Together, we revamped their on site search using the Sphinx extension for Magento to better serve their customers. We used Google Analytics to gain better understanding of their user behavior on site, and crafted a series of behavioral emails to help them reach their customers in their own inboxes. Finally, we worked together to ensure that their site was in full ADA compliance and easy to use for people of all abilities.

45% Increase in Revenue

The on site search for the La Sportiva website was falling short of expectations. Users were only able to search for products by SKU, and were unable to utilize the search function to find products by style or category. To remedy this issue, Forix integrated the open sourced search engine Sphinx into their Magento website. Sphinx is an advanced on site search program that enables users to search in a variety of ways for keywords, categories, and more. By improving on site search with Sphinx, La Sportiva saw a 45% increase in revenue YoY.

16% Increase in Transactions

La Sportiva knew that they were missing an opportunity to connect with customers who had abandoned their shopping cart or inexplicably bounced from the site. Forix helped to craft and implement a series of behavioral emails intended to draw these customers back to the website. Using Mailchimp, we were able to send emails to follow up on cart abandonment and to prompt users to leave reviews, which accounted for a 16% increase in transactions.

Full ADA Compliance

La Sportiva had encountered issues stemming from their non- compliance with ADA guidelines on their Magento site. Forix helped La Sportiva to make an actionable plan to bring their website into compliance, and then assisted in executing the plan. The final result was to make the La Sportiva website fully compliant with ADA guidelines. The updated, ADA compliant site allowed La Sportiva to better reach their users and customers, regardless of their abilities.

Since 2017, Forix has helped La Sportiva meet and exceed their ambitious eCommerce goals. By improving their on site search with an innovative extension from Sphinx, and crafting compelling behavioral emails to bring customers back to the site, we were able to increase both revenue and number of transactions. Additionally, by making their Magento site fully ADA compliant, we were able to help them reach more customers of all abilities.

My company began working with the Forix team in May 2018. So far we have been quite happy with the level of organization and effort they have shown when fixing issues we’ve come across as part of running an ecommerce site on the still relatively new, Magento 2.x platform. We are happy to not find ourselves constantly having to check on the status of a project because the team usually stays on top of the details and keeps in communication with us. I would certainly recommend Forix to any colleague looking for a web development team to help with their Magento website.

On behalf of our business, I wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for the outstanding service and commitment your team provided during the redesign of our company website. When I began researching for a web design company, my efforts ceased after I received a call from Chris within minutes of my initial request for information. Chris made me feel confident and thoroughly explained the design and development process. There were times when we were not certain where to find the information we needed to make this a success. Chris offered valuable suggestions that really made the entire process much easier. It was because of this confidence that I knew the team at Forix was the best choice. I know there were several people involved in the design process, however I must also acknowledge Kristen who provided the professional support we needed. Kristen is a great asset to your team and I can't thank her enough for her patience and ability to get things done the way we needed. The support we received from start to finish was admirable. Because of your efforts we are in a better position to effectively market our services. You have put together a great team that makes customers feel respected and valued. Thank you for the outstanding work !!
