These Merchants took advantage of the new Magento 2.0 platform to move their business forward with fast time-to-market, enhanced scalability and performance and an array of capabilities and tools right “out of the box”. 


ALCATEL ONETOUCH is an established mobile brand outside of North America. The team found itself faced with an eCommerce platform which could no longer keep up with their growing business. They needed to move quickly to launch a new site prior to the busy holiday shopping season. Magento Gold Solution Partner Corra recommended Magento 2.0, as it would enable the team to quickly build a shopping experience based on industry-leading technology that will drive sales today and set them up for expansion in the future.  Their new site allows ALCATEL ONETOUCH to give their shoppers greater choice and manage both front-end and back-end processes more efficiently than it could before thanks to the Magento Admin user interface. Magento 2.0 will also allow them to eventually have both their B2C and B2B sites on one platform. 


Popcultcha is an online destination for everything from Star Wars bobbleheads to collectible trading cards, clothing, comics and more. Their new brand, Cultcha Kids, needed to get to market fast to capitalize on the growing interest in popular culture toys and gifts for kids and the upcoming holiday season. Magento Gold Solution Partner Balance Internet, recommended participation in the Beta program as a way to access the latest technology platform that could scale and evolve, while delivering the performance they required, and ensuring access to new feature enhancements every quarter. The flexibility of the platform also lets the team control how everything is configured, so they can tailor the site to their unique needs.


Auto manufacturer SEAT is a technology leader; their online store was to be no exception. The existing SEAT Germany brand store was built on hybris with significant ongoing maintenance costs including software updates, modules upgrades and more. Plus, it wasn’t optimized for mobile experiences, which kept them from actively engaging with their target customers. Magento Gold Solution Partner Netz98 recommended the advanced Magento 2.0 digital commerce platform as a way to ensure performance, scalability and flexibility of the site moving forward. The new site is mobile-ready, highlights their technology leadership and design, and embodies the SEAT brand idea as a way of encouraging customers to enjoy the brand as much as they enjoy their cars.


Sisters Jeanie and Cindy have been profitably running SOL Lingerie for 18 years. They saw an opportunity to grow the business by creating a new site that reflects their fun, unique and personal in-store experience. SOL partnered with Magento Gold Solution Partner Guidance Solutions to design the new website and deliver the customer experience SOL’s founders wanted. The company needed a platform that could handle the demands of a stylized design, seamlessly scale to support their projected growth, and be easily customized to build their vision over time. Magento 2.0 has allowed SOL to hit the ground running, with faster page load times, a streamlined checkout process, and the ability to use rich content to create differentiated shopping experiences.


Venroy is a high end boutique label specializing in male beach resort wear. In 2015, they made a strategic shift to a consumer direct model. The new site, built by Magento Gold Solution Partner NetStarter on the Magneto 2.0 platform, is purely consumer focused and gives them complete control over the shopping experience. Critical to the project was the requirement to have the site available for the Venroy summer collection. The production timeline was constricted to 8 weeks, and provided the perfect opportunity to see what Magento 2.0 could deliver ‘out of the box’. The ability for Venroy to leverage so many built-in features enabled them to create a powerful and compelling online experience that reflects their brand values in time for their key selling season.
