We made a significant commitment and investment in our ecommerce initiatives in 2010 and our decision to work with Demandware is seriously paying off for us and helping us lay the groundwork for future growth.
Burlington, MA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 02, 2011
Demandware, Inc., a global leader in on-demand ecommerce, today announced that Boot Barn, the largest western wear retailer in the world, has relaunched its ecommerce site, BootBarn.com, on the Demandware® Commerce platform. Launched in September, the new site kicked into high gear with a large boost in online sales during the 2010 holiday season and has continued its strong momentum into 2011.
Replacing its legacy in-house platform, Boot Barn selected Demandware Commerce because of its ability to scale to support the company’s growth and the powerful merchandising functionality that makes it easy to keep up with its dynamic marketing campaigns. Advanced capabilities such as Active Merchandising® allow Boot Barn merchants to control all online merchandising interactions across search, personalization, analytics, promotions and catalog with a single, task-based user interface.
In addition, Demandware’s on-demand model alleviates the technical burden of managing the IT infrastructure, allowing Boot Barn to focus its resources on running its ecommerce business and providing an exceptional shopping experience to customers.
“The footwear and apparel business is highly competitive so we needed to upgrade our older ecommerce site to one that could help us compete at a world-class level,” said Patrick Meany, CEO of Boot Barn. “We made a significant commitment and investment in our ecommerce initiatives in 2010 and our decision to work with Demandware is seriously paying off for us and helping us lay the groundwork for future growth.”
Demandware Solution Partner, Acquity Group guided Boot Barn through the implementation process from planning to operational integration. Acquity was also responsible for the overall digital rebranding and redesign of the BootBarn.com site which was recently awarded a Best-in-Class Interactive Media Award (IMA) in the “Retail” category.
Boot Barn also took advantage of several pre-built integrations available to them through the Demandware LINK Marketplace, significantly reducing the time and effort required to implement third party technologies such as ratings and reviews, payment processing, address verification, and personalization.
“Boot Barn has built a unique brand based on the values of highest quality products and impeccable service. Like all great brands Boot Barn demanded an ecommerce platform that would help it uphold its brand promise to the online consumer for whom the website is the brand,” said Jamus Driscoll, vice president of marketing, Demandware. “We’re honored to be a part of Boot Barn’s ecommerce success and look forward to helping power the company’s continued growth.”
