Having previously deployed Adaptivemall and Keekaroo on Magento Commerce, Bergeron Co. once again tapped the powerful open-source eCommerce platform and EYStudios for their latest launches of Special Tomato and Adaptivemall Canada.
Inspired by their daughter, the Bergeron family created Special Tomato, a site which features products using innovative Soft-Touch® material designed to provide comfort to the “special tomato” in your life. Recommended by therapists, these products cater to the physical needs of your child and promotes their mobility through all their activities.
Adaptivemall Canada, like it’s counterpart Adaptivemall, is a store designed to bolster support to special needs children through adaptive equipment and therapist resources. Keeping families in mind, the site offers a truly positive shopping experience for all their seating, physical therapy, and living needs.
“Having previously launched two other Magento sites with EYStudios, the communication between the teams and the overall learning curve helped make these two projects flow smoothly.”
– Director of Operations, EYStudios
“Being our 3rd (and now 4th) Magento sites, we felt a million times more ready and could confidently answer so many more questions from our staff and customers than we could the first time. I will say having to actually pay attention to ‘store view’ was the biggest challenge. The ability to collaborate with EY on exactly what was not working and to know we had tried all the fixes we could find, made the process go so much faster. The Special Tomato web site finally got a facelift for the first time in years and became so much more user friendly. I see this site as being able to service needs for customers and dealers alike, while Adaptivemall.ca brings our products directly into an entirely new market.”
– Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Bergeron Companies
These sites really made sense for Magento because they are able to use a single backend instance to manage all four stores, including the ability to make the changes necessary for the Canadian offering. Additional project highlights for the two stores include a custom quick order form for customers to order replacement parts and the use of GeoIP to present the Canadian version of Adaptivemall to Canadian customers.
Up next for the family of Bergeron sites is focusing on upgrading to the latest release of Magento, which features a number of security patches and infrastructure enhancements.
