Background

Gat Creek launches hybrid B2C / B2B eCommerce website with product visualizer.

Magento is the perfect mix of structured capacities and customizability. The primary goal for Gat Creek was to create an online product catalog that would facilitate the type of personalization necessary and make it very easy for customers to place an order.  The company recognized that it would need a custom solution. Gat Creek has confidence that the Magento platform will continue to be a good fit as they scale in size and sophistication.

“Access to a worldwide community of development talent makes it easier
for us to invest in a website at our relatively small scale.
We have confidence that the Magento platform
will continue to be a good fit as we scale in size and sophistication.”

Problem

Gat Creek offers made-to-order furniture crafted by hand. Working with three wood species, 64 finishes, and a variety

of hardware options, the company is built to accommodate an extensive range of customization options. Properly highlighting this vast selection of products has historically been a challenge. Print catalogs and store displays typically undersell the products.
Solution

IronPlane helped Gat Creek set up a Magento eCommerce site that highlights its products and

customization options beautifully. Customers can view the available wood and paint types, pairing these features easily with the finishes that are available with each option. The Magento platform supplied Gat Creek with a sophisticated combination of out-of-the-box solutions and distinct customizations. The company was able to achieve its exact goals without having to compromise to fit into a mold not made for the business.
Outcome

Gat Creek's new website has helped the company to facilitate strong connections between

consumers and retail partners since its launch. Shortly after unveiling the new site, Gat Creek saw increased levels of productivity in the recruitment area. Conversions increased for prospects in target channels, and consumers began submitting rich, informed inquiries. Interior designers, now able to fully appreciate the product line online, have submitted account applications to Gat Creek, which has enabled the company to further expand its reach.
