The eCommerce Awards 2018 took place Wednesday 26 September at London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square. We were shortlisted multiple times, with both our clients BULK POWDERS & Science in Sport (SiS) picking up 3 nominations each (a great achievement given that this year the awards received a record number of entries).

We're very happy to announce Science in Sport (SiS) and The Pixel were victorious in the category of Best Health & Beauty eCommerce.

It's an epic achievement for all involved in what has been a exceptional project to be part of over the last year. In 2018 the SiS website underwent a major migration from Magento 1 to Magento 2, which saw the website go through a vast transition of data and design.  The re-launch introduced a new mobile specific theme featuring a dynamic mobile-specific layout that allows customers to shop by sport & range, and divides customers by type, offering a tailored service.

A new bespoke Bundle Builder specifically designed to offer customers great value on groups of products in an easy-to-use format, and the SiS Premier service (a subscription service offered to UK customers which gives unlimited Next Day Delivery) also added to the functionality and complexity of the project.

Since the migration and website re-launch, SiS has seen an increase in page speed of 24%, an increase in conversion rate of 26%, and a Mobile conversion rate increase of 31%. For more information on the project, view our full case study.

It was a brilliant night at London Marriott Grosvenor Square. We were treated to a pre-dinner drinks reception & canapés, followed by a three-course meal, awards entertainment, and post-event party.
