A new eCommerce vision
Before working with Vaimo, HYLETE had a website running on an older version of Magento Enterprise that they managed with the help of independent developers. HYLETE wanted to work with an eCommerce solutions provider who could help them actualise their vision for their online store. The premium sports brand’s previous website had a simple mobile platform that did not deliver the results that HYLETE required. HYLETE needed a responsive site that provided customers with a cohesive and transparent brand experience, while also allowing HYLETE staff to work from one platform instead of dealing with several different ones.
The visual aspect of HYLETE’s new site was exceptionally important, as the company’s goods are not sold in stores. It was essential for Vaimo to convey the feel of the premium brand through storytelling and extremely effective and detailed product descriptions and visual imagery. Vaimo provided HYLETE with the Vaimo Content Management System that enables HYLETE staff to conveniently plug in new images and widgets and build landing pages on the fly. As HYLETE is a direct-to-consumer brand, the speed of the new real-time updates allow staff to react faster to customer behaviour and adjust content accordingly.
“Vaimo provided us with a consistent aesthetic web design, that is responsive across all devices, while staying true to the HYLETE brand essence. We build products with a goal of quality and functionality above all else. Our product is the best because of the attention to detail and high performance component, not because of an excessive amount of bells and whistles, and we feel that Vaimo did a great job translating that core belief to the website. We’re very happy that Vaimo delivered a site that is visually clean and user-friendly, that truly captures the HYLETE brand.”
Director of Marketing
While HYLETE is based in the United States and the Vaimo team is based in Sweden, Vaimo ensured that team members were available to interact with HYLETE’s team face-to-face during key phases and this meant that despite the time zone differences, the project was completed in time. HYLETE stressed that Vaimo exceeded expectations under the pressure of tight timeframes, and Vaimo’s level of expertise was apparent from the flexibility and transparency shown during the whole development phase. Before the launch of the site, PJ Utsi, CCO at Vaimo, flew to HYLETE headquarters to spend time with the team and ensure the launch was a success. HYLETE staff members were satisfied that the Vaimo team was able to accurately grasp their vision and bring it to life on the new site.
Future: Global eCommerce presence
In 2016, HYLETE plans to reach more of a global presence with effective marketing communication and a loyalty program. The premium sports brand wants to solidify their brand story, and to tell that story online clearly, thoughtfully, and across different devices.
“We were looking for a long-term partner and it was important for us to work with a vendor that is interested investing in our continued success and not just a short-term project. That’s why we chose Vaimo.”
