90% faster time-to-market and cost savings

Building high-impact eCommerce websites

Printivity is the fastest growing digital print company in the USA. Previously known as MGX Copy, rebranding and slow backend processes required a new website supporting a mobile-friendly UI, SEO capabilities, and a faster and cheaper way to launch new print products. ShakaCode was hired for the complete, end-to-end implementation, including taking over and updating the designs provided by the original branding and design team.

We selected ShakaCode, not only because of their ability to provide React-on-Rails integration support, but also their extensive development and real-world experience in these technologies. It’s allowed us to establish a new development baseline and enables us to replicate our success in the future.

150% increase in subscribers in just 6 weeks

Unleashing creativity to enhance the customer journey

Founded as a pop-up dedicated to creating innovative and memorable coffee experiences, Go Get Em Tiger (GGET) is a chain of bar-style, “community coffee” shops in Los Angeles, California. Already an extension of the development team, GGET asked ShakaCode to redesign and develop the coffee subscription webpage, mirroring the customer journey and enhancing the user experience.

GGET is all about a great customer experience. We pride ourselves on exceptional service, awesome drinks, and delicious food and pastries. Still, our website was a barrier to expanding our business. ShakaCode revamped our subscription webpage, increasing uptake and enabling more customers to enjoy GGET’s great coffee at home without ever running out.

Casey GipsonDirector of Product and Engineering, Go Get Em Tiger (GGET)

After evaluating the existing website and making recommendations, ShakaCode redesigned and developed GGET’s coffee subscription webpage. Using GGET’s current style guide, ShakaCode ensured the new pages have the same look and feel as the main website. The result? GGET increased the number of coffee club subscribers by over 150% within just six weeks of deployment!
