Challenges and Objectives

Due to such a long-term and glamorous history behind its title, Stumpel has formed an extensive and loyal customer base. However, owning most stationery shops in the Netherlands, the company wanted to reach new digital heights. 

 

Nevertheless, in the modern world, it is definitely unattainable to attract new clients without a cutting-edge B2B office supplies solution. Therefore, in 2020, Jeroen Stumpel, an enterprise owner, identified the need to redesign the old website Stumpel.nl based on Magento 2. 

 

As a reliable eCommerce development partner, SolidBrain came to help and offered to develop the optimized version of the office supply market. Moreover, we decided to enrich it with more comprehensive functionality, pleasing-to-eye design, and a top-notch navigation system.

Solution

It is not a secret that PHP is considered the best option for creating high-performing websites, both dynamic and static. Inspired by this powerful technology, we upgraded the database, modified its structure, optimized server configurations, and integrated uninterruptible CI/CD configurations. In order to prioritize the pages and features that require the most attention and to boost the website's overall performance and page load time, we handled multiple site speed tests. Next, ElasticSearch enables us to ensure the next-level efficiency of the search service. Ultimately, the Firebear, Amasty, and Koongo modules were uploaded and configured.

As far as we conducted an in-depth analysis of the project requirements, we not only managed to optimize the core website's features and services but also ensured its fast speed and provided the client with broader functional capabilities. SolidBrain continues to deliver the ongoing technical maintenance and support of the project.
