Pool and HotTub Depot has been in their industry for well over a decade and have been Canada’s leading online retailer for the industry since 2017! When you are the industry leader in anything there should be a sense of authority and specialization when consumers view your company. The old version of the Pool and HotTub Depot website did not present itself as an industry leader. While functional and designed well (navigation, layout, offerings) there was little to no branding or style to help consumers feel better about who they were purchasing from. Nothing about the site felt like an industry leader, this is what led Pool and HotTub Depot to approach MAK looking to redesign their site.

They have been running their 2 eCommerce stores on an outdated platform, and in order to scale up their business they contacted MAK Digital Design to migrate both of their stores to a more modern platform.

California Import Parts, or Cip1 for short, has been the leading brand for Classic and Vintage Volkswagen parts for over 40 years. They have served over half a million customers in both the United States and Canada from their two respective eCommerce stores. Both of their stores have been running on an outdated eCommerce platform, and in order to scale their business up they needed to migrate to a more modern platform.

Our client Springbok Puzzles, a company well respected in their industry for nearly 60 years, reached out to MAK Digital Design, looking to migrate off of the Volusion platform, and bring their eCommerce store up to a modern standard.
After much consideration, they decided to take the headless approach; separating their stores front-end from its back-end to ensure the best quality possible alongside lightning fast loading times. Utilizing BigCommerce API and Gatsby, we were able to cut the websites loading time in half, whilst simultaneously updating their old, clunky design to a more modern streamlined storefront.
Their old website not only loaded extremely slow, but was poorly designed from an aesthetic standpoint as well as a user-friendly one. With their new store layout combined with a brand new UI it is much easier for customers to quickly find what they are looking for.
ProDrinkingFountains is a division of Category Five Technologies, Inc. They carry the highest quality products in commercial drinking fountains with trusted brands such as Elkay, Oasis, Haws, Sunroc, and more.

Not only did we migrate their site to the more modern and robust BigCommerce platform, but we also completely redesigned their site yet again.
Long Island Watch is a small, Long Island-based, family-owned and operated business that provides 100% authentic novel and interesting watches. For more than a decade now they have been providing unique watches online in many styles, many of which aren't the typical kind you would find at your local jewelery store.
However, despite their high-quality products, their website's design was lackluster by today's standards. After discussing their options with our development team, Long Island Watch decided not only to update the design of their website, but also to migrate from Volusion to BigCommerce, where their needs would be better served.
MAK Digital Design fully migrated and redesigned their store, making user experience the number one priority, ensuring that customers on any device would have a unique and seamless experience.
This is no light undertaking. eCommerce platform migrations are an exceptionally complex and technical development project that needs to be handled by proven experts specific to this type of project. While the ROI on migrating is pretty obvious and plain to see, the risks are much less understood. Mishandling the process could ruin the functionality of your website, upend the way your store looks, or even cause you to lose all of your hard-earned rankings in Google. Once you reach a certain size of business, that business is putting food on someone's table and failure can have very catastrophic implications.

Our client, No Whey Chocolate, recently reached out to MAK Digital, determined to migrate off of the Volusion platform.
After discussing their options with our development team, they settled on BigCommerce as their new platform of choice. We coordinated the data migration of products, customers, and orders to BigCommerce.
In the vast majority of cases, clients will capitalize on the efficiencies of re-imagining their site design during the migration. In the case of Nowheychocolate, however, they wanted to make sure that they could keep the design their customers were already familiar with when moving onto the new system.
No Whey Chocolate’s existing design was already created and built by MAK, and they were confident in the original UX/UI that was implemented. We enacted some major changes, yet ensured the core branding and store vibe carried over, making their translation more seamless.
Keyring.com is based in Long Island, NY. Every item they sell is stocked and manufactured by Keyring. Most items are shipped the same day from their facility in New York.
