Falcon deploys consumer site redesign for regency
We all love to hear how well a client is doing. Laura had the opportunity to sit down with Corina Ursu at Regency Fireplace Products to discuss their recent project completion with Falcon, a major redesign of their site. The 3 factors that drove the redesign were a fresh, new look to compliment their high-end products that they manufacture, ensuring their site would be mobile friendly, since a lot of their traffic comes from mobile devices and having a multi lingual site to support French.

Sitecore connects content management with ecommerce
One of our CMS Partners, Sitecore, unveiled a new major release of it's Commerce product. The product has been rebuilt and rebranded as Sitecore Commerce, formerly called Sitecore commerce powered by commerceserver, to give a credit to the acquisition. The top two solutions provided by this release are native personalization and native optimization. Native personalization is designed to enable merchandisers and marketers to deliver persona-driven content not only in the checkout phase of the shopping experience but throughout the customer journey. In this way, marketers and brands can offer their online visitors recommendations and contextualized content based on user behavior such as clicks, page views, and purchases, as well as demographic data like location, language, job role, and industry. In today’s marketplace, it is paramount for brands to support consumers’ personal journey through the sales funnel, right from the initial researching to the checkout if they want to set their businesses up to remain with or ahead of the curve over the next 5 to 10 years. The other critical offering with the new release is native optimization, where users can test and optimize everything from content to discounts. This capability being a bolt-on enables marketers to understand what kind of approach works the best for what kind of audience, and from there, to optimize this fully tailored end-to-end shopping experience in order to reduce cart abandonment, accelerate order size and rebuy percentages. Now that all the features are baked into the system, more sophisticated intelligence is available to learn about each individual.
