MWS's Needs

MWS needed to invest on the right parner. Having found success via their one-stop-shop service through their careful product selection, the company looked to expand its store in Chelsea to Broadway, Las Vegas, as well as investing in an eCommerce website.
However, when launching the website they ended up having a difficult time finding the right partner for their needs.

When they first turned to Resolve Digital, the company was investing countless hours in
stabilizing the code base and notany new (necessary) feature add-ons. They were draining their resources trying to manage the bugs on their site – as soon as they would fix one, more would pop up.

Our Resolve Digital Solution

As experts in the field, we were able to assume the maintenance of their site and upgrade it to achieve a fully functional site with new features. Working with Resolve Digital brought about visible upgrades for their site within weeks. When assuming the maintenance of the
site Resolve addressed many of the ongoing bugs including page load times, server errors, and deployment restrictions. A major change was the upgrade to Spree 2.1 from the 1.3 version that had been used originally.
