Today we are glad to start our first case study post series with post about great company from UK Sleepsoftly.co.uk.
We are online retail company Sleepsoftly.co.uk located in the United Kingdom and selling via our website mainly bedroom furniture products such as bedsteads, bean bags, chair beds, divan bed bases, futons, mattresses. We are a family run business based in the South West, with over twenty five years experience within the mattress and foam cutting business based here in the UK... Our background originally lies in manufacturing, but we have been spreading our wings recently and have been expanding our customer base.
Can you tell us more about your business and ecommerce experience?
We set up our website to sell our products to a far wider audience and we have been working with a number of partners to offer our products through wider sales channels
Why you have chosen Magento?
We chose Magento due to the simplicity of the back office, the direct integration of paypal, the opportunity to develop our site as we require to build it based on different functionality e.g one page checkout process vastly improved our conversion level vs the standard Magento registration format
There are dozens of companies on the market. Why did you decided to start working with Templates Master’s extensions and templates?
We have found the solution to a number of our issues with the extensions that Template Master have offered for example the Fire checkout has reduced the checkout process from 6 steps to 1 step...this has led to a far higher level of sales conversion and lowered the level of queries and difficulties our customers were having in completing their orders on our site...made a massive difference to the ease of payment for our customers. The great aspect with Template Masters is they also offer the service of integrating the extension fully working into our back office, so we can buy the extensions with confidence knowing they will work fully. We have also discussed with Template Master other product ideas and support requirements and they have always been forthcoming and helpful in all these areas
