Case Study


Team Fourteen one of Sheffield’s leading Hair Salons, the brainchild of two bothers, recognised the need to go digital. More of their customers were turning to digital channels such as Facebook and Instagram for inspiration on new hairstyles and products.

Few salons offered their products and services 24*7, from making an appointment booking to offering their customers’ favourite hair care products to be shipped to home or available for collection from the salon.

Adam and Alan started to look for a suitable solution that would offer simplicity in managing and trading the e-commerce platform whilst projecting a professional salon brand image for Team Fourteen. They weren’t interested in running their own software or servers. They knew they wanted a SaaS ecommerce platform which performed fast to ensure a great customer experience. They reviewed a few ecommerce platforms, Shopify and Adobe Magento but quickly discounted them due to time and cost to implement, site performance speed, functional capability and overall operational costs.

They selected DeeperThanBlue as their BigCommerce Agency partner. The new digital proposition was designed, built and live within 8 weeks. The Team Fourteen site launched with a full haircare range to order online, appointment booking facility with your favourite stylist and salon showcase to provide inspiration.

Case Study

Car & Van Mats – Luxury mats without the cost

Car & Van Mats had aspirations to grow their business beyond an eBay store. Despite offering a wide range of mats for Cars, Vans, Motorhomes, Caravans, and Trucks in different qualities they found that customers on eBay were predominantly value shoppers.  Whilst marketplaces do offer a guarantee of potential customers looking for your products Car & Van Mats felt they could increase customer choice with their own eCommerce store.

They set up a site on WordPress with Woo Commerce but the site proved to be slow, cumbersome and most customers abandoned at the checkout getting frustrated with the site’s speed.

Car and Van Mats team evaluated some of the leading mid-market eCommerce solutions including Adobe Magento and BigCommerce. Top of mind was site speed and performance, the ability to manage a large catalogue of products, offer a range of shipping services, support different payment options, integrate into marketplaces and provide best in class SEO capabilities.

The team selected BigCommerce and Elite Agency DeeperThanBlue as their implementation partner. Within 12 weeks the site was migrated from WordPress and Woo Commerce on to the BigCommerce SaaS platform.

Case Study

Nostalgia Pens – A Pen Collectors Heaven

with roots and a history going back nearly 100 years with its high street store presence, F.G. Thomas providing fountain pens, ball-point pens and originally starting out as stationers.

Its owner had recognised that the writing was on the wall for solely being an off-line business. With a world-wide audience of pen collectors online, the company needed to establish a digital presence and so Nostalgia Pens was born.

Whilst channels and marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay offer access to consumers their fees can quickly become hefty. Nostalgia Pens turned to DeeperThanBlue for advice. DeeperThanBlue quickly provided some concept designs and within 6 weeks had a store built and implemented on the BigCommerce SaaS platform. The site accepts Paypal payments and offers a number of promotional offers to new and repeat customers.
