The challenge

Whilst we were working on the project we had to time our design and development with Lee Stafford’s rebranding process. This meant we had to make sure deadlines were being met and matched up with the product launches and promotions that were running.

We also developed a bespoke SAP solution to allow for streamlined product fulfilment.


SAP Integration

We considered multiple solutions which were able to retrieve orders from Shopify and place them on the FTP server but were not able to create the files in the format we required and often had very limited modification capabilities.

To overcome this we built out a Zapier integration based on various triggers to get the order from Shopify once they were created. We used triggers to get the order data and created a JavaScript action in between FTP and Shopify.

Using JavaScript action, we got the capability to modify the order data as we required.

Inspired Shopping That Converts

Get the look! Our unique influencer inspired product feature was built to inspire shoppers.

In a world of influencers and social media, all eyes are on some of the internet’s biggest personalities for product and look inspirations.

Whilst Lee Stafford was busy getting the content together, we built out the page and functionality to help inspire Lee Stafford shoppers looking to change up their look and try something new.

Improved Purchasing Experiences

We integrated a product comparison tool which allowed users to compare selections within the PDPs. Adding subscription based purchasing on both PDP level and a dedicated bundle builder page offers users multiple routes to purchase and subscribe.

Global Commerce

Lee Stafford was launched exclusively in Boots in the UK and is still sold there today. The brand continues to grow and is now available in over 30 countries across the world including Germany, Brazil and the USA.

Whilst Lee Stafford products are available through its new online store, we built out a ‘Where to Buy’ feature to help customers in other regions find their local store that stocks Lee Stafford Products.

Frequently Bought With

Offering comparison features throughout product pages is another feature we were excited to implement. This inspires customers to discover new products throughout their purchasing journey on the Lee Stafford website.

Another key feature we implemented is the ‘Frequently Bought With’ section, adding an extra level of customization to a customers cart, enabling product discovery and helping turn one off purchases into lifetime customers.

Enhanced product information

Adding in a product finder in the form of a questionnaire allows the user to mimic the in-store experience online. We added long-form product pages to give the user a vast overview of product information in a digestible format which translates across all devices.

Points & Rewards

Brand loyalty is back! After seeing an uptake in points, loyalty and reward systems with our health and beauty clients, we were keen to implement a rewards program on the Lee Stafford website.

Staying true to the new branding, we paid close attention when implementing this feature to keep branding consistent throughout the store.
