While GPS Nation has a fully staffed brick-and-mortar retail store, their eCommerce presence is vital to their business. Before approaching us, GPS Nation's web presence was decent, but was built on an antiquated, proprietary content management/eCommerce platform that only their previous web development firm had access to. They knew they wanted to be on an open source eCommerce platform to gain freedom of movement. Migrating the data from the existing platform to the open source platform would prove to be a challenge.
One of the most significant factors for success of this website was that Brandon, owner and leader, had gone through several web design and development projects throughout the life of GPS Nation. He brought an exact list of requirements and specifications he needed in the re-design. Despite the previous sub-par experiences with web design projects, Brandon was upbeat and positive about the project and how this new website could represent and expand his online presence. Magento was selected as the ideal eCommerce platform for GPS Nation’s developing online eCommerce needs.
The GPS Nation project represents one of the more significant challenges we have faced in terms of data migration, which made successfully launching the site all the more gratifying. Most significantly, however, it has been and continues to be a pleasure to work with Brandon, especially given his knowledge of website design and development projects, eCommerce, and most of that he is just a good human being who honors and respects others. We were thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with him.
