thelabwarehouse.com specialise in laboratory and scientific equipment and consumables. The team have decades of experience in supplying lab equipment to businesses all over the world, and set out to take this growth further with a replatform and design refresh project.
We worked with thelabwarehouse.com on a replatforming and design refresh project, supporting their migration from Magento 1 to Shopify. Like many businesses on Magento 1, the team experienced many problems, such as lack of reliability and technical glitches, and eventually decided to migrate to Shopify due to its reliability and ease of use.
With over 14,000 products, their site functions as both an eCommerce store as well as a product catalogue, which the new redesign had to cater for.
With a large product catalogue, the original Magento 1 site contained a significant volume of data that required migrating over to the new Shopify site. This was a crucial step in the replatforming process, with over 14,000 products to migrate, along with downloadable product information files for each. However, through the use of the Excelify app, we mass updated and imported all products efficiently and easily - enabling the project to then focus on the redesign.
thelabwarehouse.com also has a very specific category structure that they wanted the new site to mirror. All category navigations can go up to five levels deep, and this also required moving over to the new site.
They also have a very specific tiered pricing model for their products, offering lower costs for bulk purchases, and this had to be implemented through a custom built app.
“Statement worked closely with us to migrate from a long established Magento site to Shopify. Throughout the process their attention to detail was second to none. Our site was delivered on time and on budget. The transition to the Shopify platform was a smooth one for us, in no small part to Statement’s input. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Statement to anyone looking for a partner to assist with implementing Shopify.”Jonathan, IT & Marketing Director
