About Fabi Boutique
Fabi Boutique is an online retailer of artisan Italian shoes. The business was established in 1965 and later transitioned to a digital store.
With competition amongst online retailers becoming fierce, e-commerce businesses need to ensure their online stores are future-proofed. Customer expectations are at an all-time high and with a growing number of customers turning to brands themselves to buy goods, the direct-to-customer selling strategy has never been a better option.
Magento announced the end of support for Magento 1 also known as Magento Enterprise last year and with the end of life date quickly approaching, brands like Fabi Boutique have been looking at their options.
Fabi Boutique decided to migrate its store across to the Kooomo platform while also giving the front-end a facelift. Fabi Boutique provided the Kooomo team with a selection of inspirational content that formed the basis for the new website. The website, as well as, the entire Fabi Boutique store were designed with the customer experience at the forefront.
Having decided to make the switch from Magento to the Kooomo platform, the entire migration took 12 weeks from start to finish. All existing data was migrated across to the Kooomo platform, the new and improved Fabi Boutique store was up and running and the business was seeing an increase in conversions within a matter of days of going live.
Since re-platforming to Kooomo, online sales have consistently continued to soar. A total sales increase of 150% was seen in the second half of the year when compared to the first half. The total cost of migration was also a welcome surprise as there was no need for system integrators thanks to Kooomo’s partner network and one-click integrations.
“We knew that we had to migrate from the Magento platform and after a lot of research we saw Kooomo as the obvious choice. The platform has future proofed our store through its next-generation offering and use of one-click integration partner network. We would be delighted to recommend Kooomo as a serious and solid digital commerce partner to future proof your brand and store.
“The Kooomo platform empowers us with real-time information at the click of a few buttons, it allows for the day to day management of the store with ease and enables time saving and seamless workflow through its simplicity. On top of this, we have seen a sales increase of 150% from Q1 and Q2 of 2019 compared to Q3 and Q4,” concluded Alessio Berdini – Fabi Boutique e-commerce manager.
