Frontrunners Nanaimo - Ecommerce

Midstride Technologies - Your Partner in Building Customized Ecommerce Sites

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way businesses operate, prompting a significant shift to online platforms. Local businesses, in particular, have been challenged to quickly adapt and find ways to reach customers online. One such business that successfully made the transition is Frontrunners Nanaimo.

Frontrunners Nanaimo is a local running store that sells running shoes, apparel, and accessories. When the pandemic hit and the world shut down, the business faced a significant challenge in keeping its operations running. That's when they approached Midstride Technologies to help them build an ecommerce site.

Midstride Technologies, a company specializing in custom software solutions, began the process by researching potential ecommerce platforms that would be suitable for Frontrunners Nanaimo. After considering their existing point of sale (POS) and inventory systems, Shopify emerged as the clear choice.

Building a Shopify site was a relatively straightforward process for Midstride Technologies, given their extensive experience with ecommerce. The team worked closely with Frontrunners Nanaimo to assess appropriate off-the-shelf themes that would save costs and expedite the process of getting the site launched.

In addition to choosing a suitable platform and theme, Midstride Technologies also assisted Frontrunners Nanaimo with defining a process for connecting inventory into the system in a way that would reduce manual work. Several customizations were required to allow customers to find related products and variations.

Despite the challenges brought about by the pandemic, the ecommerce site enabled Frontrunners Nanaimo to keep their store running. Now, post-COVID, the ecommerce site continues to serve as another means for customers to discover products, purchase online, or drop in-store to pick up their items.

The project went smoothly, with very few issues encountered. It is an example of how any local business can expand their reach and grow their revenue with a relatively low-risk investment in building an ecommerce site.
