Case Study

Andertons Music – Making their digital channels Rock

Andertons Music Co. is a global music brand with a reach extending well beyond the British Isles. Their online store has become an international destination, but perhaps an even bigger phenomenon is Andertons TV. With over 60% of most UK e-commerce traffic being on mobile, Andertons Music new they had to up the beat with their digital transformation. The original site wasn’t optimised for consumer mobile devices and tablets. Working with DeeperThanBlue and their creative agency we designed a new user experience and new branding to engage consumers in the brand, help them find products easily on the small form factor and purchase quickly to ensure no loss in conversion. The solution was built on IBM’s WebSphere Commerce on Cloud offering and is run on the IBM Cloud (Softlayer) with DeeperThanBlue providing AMS support.
