February 2023 - Commerce • News
The news comes just weeks after we announced the launch of a composable commerce world first for MKM, the UK's leading building supplies merchant, future proofing their tech stack and CX.
We've been shouting a lot about our world's first in composable commerce and what we achieved for our client MKM, the UK's leading independent builder's merchant, using MACH technologies, so it's amazing to see it recognised by a global panel of judges!
The BigCommerce Partner Award Program is now in its 5th year and we are thrilled to be part of it. The awards aim to identify exceptional and exemplary partners that use the BigCommerce platform whilst bringing stellar customer service and results for their clients.
For our focus on efficiently solving the complex needs of our B2B client, MKM, whilst utilising an array of complex B2B product features including price lists, open API’s and customer groups.
It was time to tackle complexities
The future-ready platform features an intelligent, flexible product search function related to shoppers’ behaviour and hyper-personalisation that remembers users' preferences. This results in a tailored customer journey with curated product collections and targeted suggestions.
A far cry from MKM's legacy platform, which previously experienced navigation issues, slow page loads and a high cost of ownership. But challenges didn't stop there as they also had to manage tens of thousands of product SKUs, which lacked localised and personalised B2B, B2C and B2B2C shopper experiences across regions.
The new headless architecture for the MKM website was built around four key components:
The BigCommerce Platform
The VueStorefront Front-end
The Bloomreach Suite
A Middleware Layer
And, although only launched in August 2022, the new platform has already driven promising results for the brand, with MKM already reporting:
16% uplift in year-on-year organic traffic
77% boost to time on page
26% uplift in online sales year-on-year
