Custom Wine and Spirits Website: BaronWines

Our engineers have developed an eCommerce wine and spirits website that helps the family-run business sell their best vintages to the world.

About Baron Wines

Baron Wines is a family-run business that was founded in 2010, London. The company sells Burgundy, a dry red wine produced in the east of France. A feature of this wine merchant business is that its owners specialize in trading old and therefore extremely rare alcoholic beverages from the premium segment.

However, Baron Wines is not limited to buying and selling old-vintage spirits. The company also offers brokerage of distinguished wines and accident-free storage of rare items in its secure wine vaults.

The Challenges of Wine eCommerce Platform Engineering

The family ran their business with success. Somewhere along the line, their wine and spirits company grew to the point when it badly needed a cutting-edge eCommerce website not to cut down momentum, but rather to accelerate the expansion of their business.

When the managers of Baron Wines began to look for a development team that could take on eCommerce retail website development, it happened that their choice fell on Fively. When we got to know each other a little better, the final decision became obvious for both parties —no one could do this job better than the engineers from Fively. In many ways, the choice of Baron Wines managers was due to the fact that they were fond of our portfolio, and found our experience sufficient to safely rely on us in the realm of online eCommerce website development.

Once the decision to cooperate was made, our main goal was to create a genuinely modern wine & spirits website that would help attract new customers who appreciate the exquisite taste of old wine and introduce them to the full range of different services provided by Baron Wines.

Did we succeed in meeting the expectations of fastidious wine connoisseurs? - You bet! After all, we managed to create a marvelous wine store website to achieve an exquisite blend of the fairly tradition-bound wine-making business and the state-of-the-art-type eCommerce industry.

How We Helped Baron Wines with Wine Store Website Development

Going digital is never easy, especially when it comes to conservative industries, such as wine production. Hardly anyone would deny the fact that the eminent culture that has been formed around wine has been cultivated for centuries, and therefore has a large number of deeply-rooted traditions and practices. We knew that we had to dive headlong into the lofty philosophy that lies at the very heart of the production and drinking of classy spirits.

In addition, we were to create a product not for ordinary wine lovers, but for people with a very delicate constitution, refined tastes, and extremely high standards. We made it for connoisseurs of fine wines who know what they need and who are not ready to make concessions.

Bearing in mind all of the above, we approached the task responsibly and were pedantically gathering all the requirements for the future product and wishes of our client to build a wine eCommerce solution of transcendent quality.

Our on-demand developers were keen to create a feature-rich wine eCommerce platform that could boast of its impeccable performance, which in turn would help Baron Wine to exercise its services in accordance with the highest standards and enhance its business development rates significantly.

In the words of the owners of Baron Wines, the engineers from Fively have splendidly handled online eCommerce website development for their wine-focused business. In cooperation with them, we have built a feature-packed eCommerce platform, which right now helps the family-run business to generate new customers, keep in touch with regular clients, promote their services far beyond London and, of course, sell the best vintage wines from France to the savviest drinkers.

Results of Our cooperation on Wine & Spirits Website

Judging by the eCommerce retail website development, which was carried out by a team of engineers from Fively, one cannot help but admire the work done. Over several months, we guided Baron Wines through the digital transformation journey from start to finish.

We have been able to create a pixel-perfect wine eCommerce website that looks and functions as an online store for premium products is supposed to. We’ve also upgraded the CRM system so that valued customers can enjoy a truly personalized experience. It is also worth mentioning that for this wine and spirits online store the warehouse management system has been significantly expanded — right now the software provides more scenarios for interacting with goods, as well as updated calculation scripts.

Nowadays, any small business can completely get rid of the better half of bottlenecks, through eCommerce retail website development, which can greatly increase its capacity and make even a tiny company a very serious rival. Baron Wines is a real-life image of how cutting-edge technology can transform a family-owned firm into a company that does much business globally.

The Challenges of a Handy Shopify Extension Development

The client was looking for strong engineer support to strengthen their team and scale the existing server infrastructure: “We are looking for a very experienced back-end engineer to help scale our AWS infrastructure, monitor performance, and get ahead of any potential server issues. This hire will be the front line for all issues and we are hoping to find a long-term member of our team. Our current Engineering team is comprised of a CTO (full stack), Front End Designer, Front End Developer, and three other full-stack engineers.”

Thus, for this browser extension development project we needed not just to build a custom application and set the needed infrastructure from scratch. Our mission was to become an integrated part of the already existing development team and its front line force for reaching the following goals:

  • Help to scope projects and set deliverable dates;
  • Build and scale a shopping service MessageBuy - an extension for Shopify;
  • Arrange SMS shopping cart notifications for users who abandone the cart;
  • Rework clients’ server infrastructure on a Shopify cloud platform;
  • Provide continuous technical and maintenance support;
  • Fix arising bugs and solve any issues, if any.

After all the documentation was signed, we started our fruitful collaboration upon the development and maintenance of a custom Shopify extension MessageBuy, that continues up until now and has impressive results.

How Fively Helped MessageBuy

In this Shopify case study, we provided top-tier management of the project at all development stages: provided precise analysis of the client’s business needs, proposed an optimized team structure, the suiting server architecture, the right tools to provide a smooth deployment process:

Project Architecture: To create this Shopify chrome extension, we decided to use Shopify and AWS platform and infrastructure services, Google and Stripe APIs, and DevOps techniques of agile development and flawless integration.

Team Structure: We analyzed the given scope of the client’s goals, and realized that 1 back-end specialist, requested by the client initially, is not enough for the project. We proposed the team structure optimization, and the client agreed on 3 full-stack and 1 DevOps specialist as the fitting team size.

Communication tools: We used Trello for task status tracking and management and Slack for direct communication with clients on any initiatives.

Post-production support: we arranged qualified technical support of our Shopify Сhrome extension to monitor performance, and get ahead of any potential server issues.

All these improvements allowed us to successfully cover all the client’s goals and get great project results on application work.

Results: Shopify SMS Notifications and Abandoned Cart Recovery

As a result of close cooperation with the client, we have built a shopping notifications service MessageBuy that has the following features:

  • We build an extension for Shopify MessageBuy that optimized the process of marketing and sales communication, made it fully automated in comparison with other shopping notifications services, and saves time on the information processing. It has a free trial and strong customer support.
  • We created a system of automated and personalized Shopify text messages, which involves consumers buying and allows raising sales up to 40% and consumer engagement rate up to 78% thanks to SMS marketing messages.
  • Due to our Shopify cart abandonment software, we’ve made abandoned cart recovery an easy 3-minute setup process that’s fully automated and does not require any human interaction from merchants. Plus, the app can provide you a free 2-weeks audit of why your customers abandone cart notification Shopify and how to minimize this.

Client’s feedback on the quality of our cooperation:

Darren Pierce, CEO at MessageBuy, commented in his review on Clutch “Custom Software Dev for Text Messaging Company” on our close collaboration throughout the year: “The team at Fively provides a service with consistent results and little issues. Their project management style is top-tier. Their team helped us scope projects and set deliverable dates. I was most impressed with their communication. They were happy to get on a Zoom call at any time to talk through anything.” He also marked our quality of software development, schedule of work, cost of our services, and willingness to refer and help as 5 out of 5.
