We were asked by Pure Pro to migrate their existing BigCommerce store from the antiquated Blueprint framework to the new Stencil framework. Working closely with the Pure Pro team, IntuitSolutions designed, developed and launched a custom BigCommerce Stencil theme on PurePro.com. We then implemented custom add-ons to enhance the UX.

Their Story

Established in 2012, Revolution Gear & Axle is a veteran-owned and operated business with a rich history of delivering top-tier aftermarket drivetrain products. Known for their unwavering commitment to quality and customer service, the brand has earned the trust of automotive shoppers nationwide.

To better align with the evolving demands of their valued customers, they acknowledged a need for change with their previous Drupal-based website. They turned to the BigCommerce design and development experts—IntuitSolutions—to revamp their online store with a more robust, scalable ecommerce solution.

The Challenge: Modernizing UX, Site Performance, and Business Operations

Ecommerce merchants selling automotive products must carefully attend to every detail in their online store, from efficiently managing backend catalog data to updating and refining front-end features. In the evolving digital terrain, the choice of an ecommerce platform becomes paramount: it's not just about meeting today's needs; it's about preparing for tomorrow's challenges. 

In the pursuit of modernizing UX, elevating site performance, and optimizing operations for their online store, Revolution Gear found the answer. They embraced a migration to BigCommerce, the world’s most cutting-edge ecommerce platform designed to meet their evolving needs.

The Solution: Migration to BigCommerce

Trusted globally by more than 2,600 automotive ecommerce businesses, BigCommerce is the premier ecommerce platform for selling automotive parts, wheels and more. Revolution Gear’s migration to BigCommerce secured their business a robust site foundation anchored by the ITS Base Theme—a Stencil theme rooted in BigCommerce's Cornerstone framework.

Coupled with the BigCommerce B2B Edition, their site now harnesses the full spectrum of the platform’s cutting-edge customization capabilities, ensuring a modern and powerful ecommerce experience.

Our BigCommerce developers have dedicated hundreds of hours 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
  • Mobile Photoswipe Functionality
  • Popup Login Feature
  • Product Video Thumbnails
  • Image Swap on Hover
  • Informational Product Page Tabs
  • Additional Rich Snippet Schema Markup
  • Much more
