The Challenge: Modernizing a BigCommerce Store with Underlying Site Health Issues

As Cartridge World expanded its global reach, the demand for a more modern and scalable online store became evident. However, the company encountered obstacles during the transition to a pre-built theme. Our development team conducted a comprehensive health audit, uncovering critical deficiencies in code and architecture, which led to performance issues and limitations on future growth.

In response, Cartridge World sought the expertise of our BigCommerce design and development experts to develop a custom solution. This strategic pivot aimed to rejuvenate their online presence while navigating the complexities of their outdated codebase.  

The Solution: Custom BigCommerce Design and Development on the Latest Cornerstone Theme

Leveraging the flexibility of the BigCommerce Cornerstone-based Stencil theme, our team created a bespoke design that surpassed the limitations of off-the-shelf solutions. By harnessing the BigCommerce platform's modern and powerful features, we seamlessly integrated custom functionality and design elements tailored specifically to Cartridge World's requirements.

Our BigCommerce developers have dedicated hundreds of hours to optimizing our theme for Page Load Speed, Accessibility, SEO, and faster updates.

Key ITS Base Theme Improvements Include:

  • Significant Upgrades to Web Accessibility
  • Optimized 404 Page & Crawler Instructions for Google
  • Improved ‘Quick Search’ Results
  • Informational Product Page Tabs
  • Additional Rich Snippet Schema Markup
  • Much more
