Robert Dyas, the online and High Street homewares specialist, has partnered with InventCommerce to ensure the successful development of their new Magento Enterprise platform.

The recent project has been highly successful and we are pleased to call InventCommerce a trusted partner to Robert Dyas.

Robert Dyas was founded in 1872 by ironmonger Robert Dyas after emigrating from Ireland with just £5. Having been bought by long-time Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis in July 2012 the company has gone from strength to strength and, as part of Paphitis’ Ryman Group of businesses, has become a renowned supplier of Kitchenware, household items, electrical appliances, home office, gardening products, power tools, DIY and ironmongery both in-store and online. After a careful selection process Robert Dyas chose InventCommerce as their dedicated Magento Solution Partner to aid them in the development of their eCommerce store onto the Magento Enterprise platform.

As Robert Dyas has grown and demand from customers had increased, the platform that their website was previously hosted on was no longer able to meet the requirements of the company and adapt to the changing consumer market, therefore the decision was taken to redevelop the store on the Magento Enterprise platform. The decision was made to use InventCommerce as their dedicated Magento solution partner to provide expertise, advice and continuous development services, known as Business- As- Usual (BAU). Through these services, InventCommerce have been able to provide Robert Dyas with a committed team of Project Management, Certified Developers and Quality Assurance experts that allowed Robert Dyas to plan out their development work and commit to project deliverables in order to ensure the successful redevelopment of their new online Magento Enterprise store.

Kevin Ludford, Founder & CEO of InventCommerce Ltd, discusses the value of this type of partnership:

The cycle of change in online retail today is accelerating faster than ever, thanks to ever improving technologies and strategies, making staying ahead of the competition increasingly challenging. Robert Dyas needed to create a flexible platform that maintained their high level of customer services and dynamic product set to give them the functionality they needed to keep up with the latest retail trends. We are proud to have been selected in the first place among all the other Magento partners and to say that we have built a trusted partnership with Robert Dyas that has allowed them to prioritise and meet all of their targets for continued growth. We looked forward to a continuing partnership with them.

Greg Saunders, Group eCommerce Director for Ryman, also comments on the success of the partnership:

“The recent project has been highly successful and we are pleased to call InventCommerce a trusted partner to Robert Dyas. Through the partnership we have received the reassurance that comes from working with an accredited Magento partner, and we will continue to draw on their extensive Magento knowledge and expertise as we enter into new and challenging projects.”
