As a client of Flint Studios from 2018 Insect Lore commissioned a new user-friendly online shopping experience to meet their growing demand. The core project was to redevelop their existing Magento Website, protect their multi million pound business, and relaunch on Version 2 to support established B2B channels with wholesale capabilities across Europe alongside direct sales in the UK & Ireland.
The pandemic arrived shortly after launch and it became clear that he level of B2B engagement was going to be impacted. The majority of orders came through Schools and with these entities closed they reached out to Flint Studios to help them pivot into alternative direct selling channels. They urgently needed to rebuild their hosting infrastructure as the expected traffic profile was going to be larger and spikier if the objective of direct channels succeeded.
