B lueBolt launches an innovative digital commerce experience for SRAM, the preeminent manufacturer of state-of-the-art bicycle components.
Chicago, IL – June 23, 2020 – BlueBolt, Inc., an award winning digital agency, today announced that it helped launch an innovative digital commerce experience for SRAM, the preeminent manufacturer of state-of-the-art bicycle components. BlueBolt provided development and design services for their site: www.sram.com, with Quarq and Zipp launched as SRAM brands going Direct to Consumer.
“While SRAM had worked with BlueBolt previously to digitally enable their robust network of customers, distributors, and retail partners through an Optimizely, formerly Episerver, based business portal, we were now looking to host all our brands on one consumer-facing platform and introduce a more consistent consumer journey.” said Dragana Pajovic, Director of E-Commerce at SRAM. “With our new Quarq and Zipp sites, we have introduced a multi-brand cart and we can now own our brand experience from start to finish – it’s been an exciting step in our digital transformation.”
With the launch of the new sites, SRAM’s products are showcased in an elevated user experience, and early performance shows positive results. Built on the Optimizely Commerce platform, and leveraging the previously implemented B2B site and infrastructure, the B2C site rollouts included innovative functionality and key integrations with several third-party vendors. Some notable features include:
- A redesigned site experience on desktop and mobile to enable a frictionless B2C buyer’s journey across the site, including a shared shopping cart across brands.
- A custom configurator specific to the Quarq product site, which enables a user to build their chosen product directly on the product detail page. This is a unique customization within Episerver that takes any number of SKU’s and drills down options based on the buyer’s selections, to deliver one final finished product and price.
- Refreshed brand experiences for Quarq and Zipp, with the addition of the “My Account” section that enables users to store their information, access order history, and create wish lists, resulting in more meaningful customer touchpoints and encouraging brand loyalty across all of SRAM’s brands.
“We’re extremely proud to have designed and developed a beautiful site that truly demonstrates the excellence of the SRAM brand,” said Dave Risner, CEO at BlueBolt. “This new site is not just a place to purchase SRAM’s world class products; it’s a destination for cycling enthusiasts from all over to connect with the brand on a deeper level and immerse themselves in the lifestyle that SRAM represents.”
