The challenge 

Sheet Plastics is the UK's largest online plastic sheet stockist. It's part of the Amari Plastics Group who has made a strategic decision to migrate all of their existing ecommerce websites over to Magento Enterprise, building a strong and formidable unified business.

Magento provides solutions for all business types, big and small. The ecommerce platform has the ability to support small start-up businesses with cost-effective templates, and large leading organisations like Sheet Plastics, with complex product ranges. Sheet Plastics' wide breadth of products with intricate aspects, meant that a bespoke Magento Enterprise system was needed.

Magento Enterprise, which has in-built full page caching, loads much quicker than standard Magento Community and it has the ability to handle thousands of products with ease. Fully compenent in Magento development, we relished the challenge...

What we did

Magento Enterprise is perfect for Sheet Plastics; it allows for important customisation and has the ability to build multiple shop fronts on one powerfully engineered backend, without the need for additional plugins, creating a much faster website. Enterprise enables specific functionality including improved search performance, additional promo rules, convenient CMS versioning and return merchandise authorisation. Sheet Plastics now has purpose-built backend and frontend functionality including a cart-to-quote addition, a VAT switcher, measurement converter and a cut-to-size calculator.

On top of the additional functionality and a faster website, we presented Sheet Plastics’ large amount of SKUs in a clear and concise way, allowing customers to select their chosen plastic and customise it with ease. The fully functioning bespoke store now has a heightened user experience and in turn, will improve sale conversion. Originally built using Open Cart platform, Sheet Plastics lacked responsive capabilities, making the ability to purchase via mobile and tablet virtually impossible. The new mobile-friendly site presents information in a digestible format, encouraging and supporting mobile sales.
