Minimize Web Platform Migration Risk and Gain Time to Market Advantage With eClerx Replatforming Accelerator(TM)

Solution Ensures "Business as Usual" Operations During Website Platform Migrations While Managing Project-Critical Tasks Including Content Setup, Tagging and SEO

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/14 -- With connected technologies evolving at a rapid pace, digital marketers are challenged to keep up with the latest in omni-channel commerce. To help online retailers meet complex challenges, eClerx today introduced the eClerx Replatforming Accelerator™ designed to simplify eCommerce and content management platform modernization while maximizing project ROI and customer facing launch schedules.

According to Forrester analysts Peter Sheldon and Lily Varon in their March 2014 report titled, "10 Pitfalls To Avoid During eCommerce Replatforming," businesses are being forced to adapt in the age of the customer, and replatforming initiatives are becoming increasingly complicated with more stakeholders, data and complex integrations. Sheldon and Varon found that replatforming projects can run over budget and are oftentimes delivered late due to a lack of business readiness and poorly defined requirements.[1]

"A replatforming effort is among the largest and most complex undertaking for a marketing organization, and has to be done without harming or slowing day-to-day operations of the business," said Scott Houchin, Managing Principal at eClerx. "If done poorly, businesses risk a drop in site visitors, lowered conversion rates and even a loss of revenue on top of typical project delays which often means websites miss out on being fully optimized for peak retail seasons."

A new web platform migration project involves an overwhelming amount of "business user" related work that many companies don't plan for, let alone include, in the project budget. Many organizations with in-house or implementation partners focus largely on the technology and creative aspects of migration, pay little attention to the broader organizational needs or ramifications that a replatforming project creates.

eClerx Replatforming Accelerator™ includes well-defined methodologies, deliverables, processes, process-automation tools and training that enables an efficient, focused and successful platform launch:

  • Content Migration and Strategy
  • Search Optimization, across both search engines and site search tools
  • Product Data Migration and Management, including PIM support
  • Web Analytics and Tag Management, including Tag Standardization and post-launch Tag Audits
  • Site Testing Support
  • Project Management
  • User Interface (UI) Development
  • Digital Asset Management

Houchin continued, "While a replatforming exercise can help online businesses better adapt to a more complex and connected marketplace, it is a big decision that shouldn't be taken lightly. With our Replatforming Accelerator™, eClerx is ready to handle the complexity and workload to deliver your next generation digital platform."
