Geiger Returns to Znode After Difficult Magento Implementation
Geiger, the largest family owned promotional distributor firm in the U.S., provides customized creative solutions for brands such as Jelly Belly and Netflix. Although an early adopter of Znode, Geiger eventually decided to use the competing ecommerce platform Magento 2 because of its popularity.
Implementation of Magento proved to be a difficult experience for Geiger. Using Magento, the company experienced long page load times, lost its established SEO ranking, and ultimately saw online sales drop 30%. Losing money and growing increasingly frustrated with Magento, Geiger knew a change was needed.
Geiger contacted Znode and requested to have its previous ecommerce platform restored. Znode developers were able to recover Geiger’s Znode site and go live within a couple of days. Since returning to Znode, Geiger saw faster page load times, their SEO ranking improved, and their online sales return. Since returning to Znode, Geiger also leverages the PIM functionality of Znode to easily catalog and manage product information.
“Znode is going to change the industry with updates over upgrades. Instead of spending thousands of man hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars implementing new upgraded versions of a platform, Znode allows us to simply consume the updates and have immediate access to new features and functionality.”
