Wallace Sacks has re-launched a new e-commerce website, designed and built by Screen Pages, using the increasingly popular and sophisticated Magento e-commerce platform. The new e-commerce website has been launched at www.wallacesacks.com.

 

Wallace Sacks is a family owned and run design business manufacturing several brands that are marketed within leading High Street chains, department stores and independents. It launched Wallace Sacks Lifestyle in 2000 with the aim of creating home collections and first went online in 2005. And recent sales performance has been very encouraging, with average conversions up by 172% on last year for the first six months.

 

The new website includes a broader range of 'best practice' e-commerce features (available as standard with Magento), including strong search engine optimisation (SEO) capabilities, filtered navigation, single page and guest checkouts, multiple product images and on-page zooms and cross-sells, social shopping features such as product reviews, tags and RSS feeds. It is also now integrated with MNP's Order Active mail order package to improve customer service and reduce processing costs.

 

Stephen Sacks, managing director of Wallace Sacks said: "We have seen a big change in consumer shopping habits for our kind of lifestyle products, with a massive uptake in online spend. This investment will give us a massive leap forward in terms of functionality and service: already we are seeing larger order values. For us Magento offers state-of-the-art and feature rich e-commerce capability at a fraction of the budget, on a non-proprietary platform."
