Disc Store

Ultimate Frisbee & Disc Golf

Overview

Flinging quality even faster to customers and their community.

Disc Store provides quality affordable Ultimate discs not only to customers, but they use their business to help their community, giving to organizations such as Breaking Borders and Early Recognition is Critical. They were concerned with page load speeds so we performed site analytics and reduced load time by 50%. We also further improved load times by integrating Full Page Caching into their site. Moving this effort from a single developer to the Engine 23 team was accomplished at the same cost as the previous provider.

The Challenge

Moving from a Single Developer to a Magento Team

Back in 2008, Disc Store was created to provide quality Ultimate discs at an affordable price. But they don’t just sell discs, they use their business to help their community, giving to organizations like Breaking Borders and Early Recognition Is Critical. Their customers and community are the focus, so they want a website that functions properly. Disc Store sought out Engine23, ready to work with a Magento certified team.

They were concerned with the page load speeds of their site so we performed a site analysis, reducing the initial four second load time down to just two seconds. Moving them over to two specialized server configurations and adding a CDN further reduced load time as well. We were able to do this at the same price they were paying for their single server. To further improve the speed of load times, we also integrated Full Page Caching into their site.

How We Help

Items we have accomplished for DiscStore

After our team got their store running faster, we continued searching for ways to grow and expand their website. We went through and added Microdata and an automatic Google store feed so searches would pull their product information. To keep customer and business information secure, we added the official Magento security updates to their site.

More customers are using smartphones to shop and search for products, so we focused on improving mobile page load speeds. We were also concerned about the sales and shopping aspect so we integrated Amazon payment options into their website. Our job is still not done and we continue working with Disc Store to further improve their business and keep meeting our client’s vision for the future of Disc Store.
