A fresh, contemporary site that enables customers to shop online at any time, on any device.
Postie+, an iconic NZ brand
We initially built the Postie+ website back in 2008, using the Magento platform. By 2016 it was in need of a serious overhaul, including an update to the latest version of Magento and a new, responsive design that complemented the brand refresh Postie+ had recently undertaken.
Postie+ were running an old version of Magento with a non-responsive frontend that was overdue for an update. The Magento platform had been integrated with Ontempo and had a number of customisations which added extra layers of complexity to the project.
We redesigned the entire site to meet responsive ecommerce design trends and provide a more intuitive online shopping experience for Postie+ customers.
Working with multiple third parties we began the process by upgrading Magento to the latest version – version 1.9. This involved working closely with stakeholders across the Postie+ business as well as third parties including Poli, Ontempo and Magento extension suppliers. We also conducted extensive end-to-end testing of the shopping process and the internal processes at Postie+ to ensure optimal functionality.
While our backend developers worked through the Magento upgrade we began redesigning the frontend across desktop and mobile devices.
The outcome was a fresh, contemporary site that enabled customers to shop online at any time, on any device. The Magento update provides a safe, secure platform from which the site can grow and evolve as the needs of Postie+, and their customers, do likewise.
