Mixed martial arts retailer chooses Demandware Commerce for a more flexible, scalable solution to support growth.
BURLINGTON, Mass. – December 12, 2011 – Demandware®, Inc., a leader in on-demand ecommerce, today announced that MMAWarehouse.com, an online mixed martial arts retailer, has deployed Demandware Commerce as the foundation for its online business. The early-stage online retailer took advantage of Demandware’s entry-level pricing model for small to mid-sized retailers to leverage the full capabilities of Demandware’s enterprise-class platform for its online business.
In August, MMAWarehouse.com re-launched its flagship site -- MMAWarehouse.com – on Demandware Commerce and two new additional sites – Dethrone.com and shop.mixedmartialarts.com – shortly thereafter. Since deploying Demandware, the retailer has seen a significant improvement in performance and speed which Mika Casey, CEO of MMAWarehouse.com credits to “streamlined content delivery and a rock-solid platform built for growth.” The company plans to leverage Demandware for further business expansion, including additional branded sites, mobile commerce, and international sites.
MMAWarehouse.com had outgrown its legacy in-house platform, and needed a more scalable solution to support its growth. After a thorough evaluation, the company selected Demandware because it provides a unique combination of powerful merchandising functionality, a fully customizable development platform, and a secure, stable environment, at an affordable entry-level price designed for early stage brands.
"We had outgrown our previous platform and were lacking the latest functionality, causing us to feel as if we were falling behind the curve competitively,” said Casey. “Moving to Demandware has enabled us to be more strategic and tactical with our business, and thanks to its stability and scalability, we can all sleep better at night. We now have the same enterprise-class platform used by some of the world’s largest brands at a price that we can afford.“
Demandware Solution Partner, Lyons Consulting Group (lyonscg) led the MMAWarehouse.com implementation, which took only 17 weeks to complete. lyonscg also implemented the two new microsites in less than one month each.
According to Casey, “The implementation process was great and stayed on a fairly aggressive schedule. Executing the microsites was also fast and painless. After such a positive experience, we are planning to work with lyonscg to add additional sites, including mobile commerce and foreign language sites.”
“Our clients trust us to provide them with scalable and reliable ecommerce solutions,” said Rich Lyons, CEO and founder of Lyons Consulting Group. “Building their sites on Demandware Commerce was a great choice for MMAWarehouse.com and will provide them with the flexibility they need as their business grows.”
“MMAWarehouse.com is a dynamic retailer committed to providing its customers with the best online shopping experience possible. We’re thrilled that they turned to Demandware and lyonscg when it became clear that their legacy platform could no longer support their fast-growing business,” said Jamus Driscoll, senior vice president of marketing for Demandware. “Together, we look forward to working with MMAWarehouse.com to help ensure continued success.”
