We recently designed and launched a new Magento 2 site for Fastco, a leading supplier of fasteners, fixings, screws and tools. We carried out a full Magento 1 to Magento 2 data migration working closely with the client to ensure that the process was seamless and a successful launch was achieved. The company had a record month in sales the same month we launched.
To successfully migrate the site we carried out essential work to ensure that the site wouldn’t lose any data or SEO juice and would perform as best as it could from the outset of go live. We fully optimised the new site for complete SEO gain and configuration.
“"Verve first redesigned our website 6 years ago and since then we have worked together regularly and always been impressed with the quality of work." ”Charlotte Downs CEO of Fastco
We also worked to ensure that the Google shopping feed was successfully set active on launch to avoid any loss in sales through the advertising platform.
The site itself features Feefo review integration, a full wordpress and Magento integration, Magento 2 optimisation for speed and conversions, enhanced search and suggest, a full Google Shopping integration, B2B registrations and functionality, as well as a quick order form allowing trade to bulk buy using SKUS.
The speed of the migration was key to ensuring that there was a minimal loss of sales when the site went live. We communicated with the client every step of the way and worked quickly and efficiently to achieve a flawless launch.

“It is always a pleasure to work alongside the team, and we were extremely excited for the Magento 2 build. We are so pleased with the new site, sales are up and we love the design. Thank you!" ”Charlotte Downs CEO of Fastco
We worked with Fastco to build a social media strategy that would tie in with the launch on the new site. After in depth client and competitor research we created new imagery and decided on specific hashtags that would boost the company’s profile and help to increase social followers.
