Business requirements

StoneButterfly is a UK based company, situated near Leicester in the heart of the Midlands.

It sources and produces modern and contemporary furniture with the aim to provide standout designs at affordable prices. The company sources high quality products from tried, tested, and trusted manufacturers.  At its in-house workshop, it designs and produces Scandinavian style customised furniture, handcrafted by expert cabinet makers. Its website offers sofas, chairs, dining tables, lighting and more.

StoneButterfly needed to upgrade their website’s platform and modules from Magento 2.2.2 to 2.4.2 to maximise security and ensure the best online user experience and customer satisfaction.  The project involved upgrades to both default and custom modules.

Our Solution

A chilliapple account manager and a team of Magento specialists designed a migration plan to ensure there was no interruption to StoneButterfly’s day to day business.  The project was managed with BaseCamp 3 and weekly calls to ensure progress and feedback were shared continuously.  We retained all existing functionality, including custom layouts, a one page check-out, pre-orders features and product sample pages, and other site content as well as customer and order data.  All site upgrades need to be planned carefully because of the risk of reduction in site speed and SEO performance. We ensured the migration of optimised content and quality checked for potential broken links and errors before the new site launched. As standard, we tracked site performance for 60 days and fixed any bugs.

The Results

Within 2.5 weeks, we had successfully upgraded the site and ensured it was optimised for speed as well as for search engines. StoneButterfly was able to continue to trade without interruption during the project and they have benefited from the extra security and peace of mind offered by the latest version of Magento. The client was so delighted that they have signed up to our Silver Support package for ongoing maintenance and support. Watch this space for further enhancements to their online store, including Klarna, Apple Pay & Google Pay, an interactive search bar, and AI driven product listing for a personalised shopping experience.
