When Gardner acquired a large competitor with many sites, they found themselves split between two dated platforms. With more than 1.8 million SKUs across 30+ B2C and B2B websites, they needed a partner that could handle unifying their massive catalogs and lead them through a major platform upgrade.

Gardner chose Classy Llama because they wanted a partner with experience in complex development and migrations. Based on Gardner’s experience with the Magento 1, they decided to have Classy Llama unify their websites on Magento 2, a platform that could handle both B2B and B2C selling equally well.

Since completing the project, Gardner’s marketing team can now launch new B2C and B2B websites without any server configuration or development changes. Inventory only needs to be kept in sync with a single eCommerce platform and features only need to be built once and can be enabled/disabled across all of Gardner’s sites. Ongoing maintenance costs are expected to decline due to only having to maintain a single platform.

“Working with Classy Llama we have been able to easily replicate our B2C direct sites allowing us to double the number of transactional sites we are managing without adding any additional staffing. Additionally, we have been able to support the online growth of one of our key retail partners by providing a simple but effective way to allow their customers to transact seamlessly through their site”
