Their Story

In a world where medical professionals work tirelessly to save lives, comfort and practicality should be a top priority. Blue Sky Co. understands this better than anyone else. For more than 20 years, the company has been creating stylish, athletic-inspired, ethically manufactured scrubs for the dedicated professionals who serve us daily.

The Challenge

Striving to improve user experience, increase search visibility, and boost conversions, the online retailer faced a significant obstacle: their BigCommerce store was on the outdated Blueprint framework.

In 2016, BigCommerce made a significant leap forward by upgrading its platform to the cutting-edge Stencil framework. Still on Blueprint, risked losing critical site functionality and prevented them from accessing the latest features released by BigCommerce for its merchants.

Common issues with Blueprint include: 

  • Broken site features and functionality
  • Slower page load speed
  • Poor mobile experience
  • Lagging SEO optimization 
  • Outdated user experience

Blue Sky Scrubs knew the development of its website would stagnate without an update to Stencil. They turned to our team of Blueprint to Stencil migration experts to perform a custom update of their online store while keeping their existing site intact.

The Solution

The solution was clear: a custom update to the BigCommerce Stencil framework. Doing so would improve their site's overall functionality and performance, implement a more modern code base, and ultimately help boost their online sales.

Highlights of the Stencil update:

  • Better website speed & performance
  • Developer-friendly code
  • No-code page builder capabilities
  • Access to more payment options
  • More powerful marketing features

Along with the Stencil update, their site got a modern facelift, boasting a new header and better use of screen space “above the fold.” The website also featured custom add-ons that further improved the user experience, making the site stand out as a leader in the industry.

Site Customizations & Enhancements

Some highlights of the unique solutions we implemented for their new BigCommerce store.

Custom Mega Menu

Blue Sky Scrubs wanted something that stood out from the standard menu design found on most ecommerce websites, so we delivered a custom-developed Mega Menu for BigCommerce. This not only enhances the user experience by providing faster navigation, even with large media and images, but also offers additional CTA space to highlight current promotions.

The new menu is also linked to the back office, making it easier to update compared to their previous hard-coded menu.

Easy Popup Login

This simple popup window allows users to log in from any page, skipping the multi-page login process native to BigCommerce. A great add-on to ensure customers don’t lose their place in the purchase pipeline.

Category Page Enhancements

Custom feature enhancements on the Category Page give shoppers an easier way to navigate and sort the products they're searching for.

A custom-developed horizontal menu on the Category Page provides shoppers a with clean, intuitive navigation for sorting products by color, size, price, and other criteria. 

An additional list view option provides shoppers with an alternate view to the standard card option. Shoppers can view more details on the Category Page, like color options and product descriptions.

It's an effortless way to showcase multiple colors or styles of a product, with the swatch options appearing as a row of clickable thumbnails beneath relevant items on the page.

Product Thumbnail Options Swap

This customization lets shoppers preview different product style options within the Product page. It works with existing Product Options and Product Option Rules and requires no merchant setup.
