The Gillies Story

 
Gillies is an independent family run business and is highly regarded as one of Scotland’s premier furnishing retailers. The company offer the largest selection of furniture, carpets and storage in the North East of Scotland. We were delighted to be given the opportunity to develop a more intuitive and user friendly website design. Magneto was the best choice for creating the ultimate user experience, with a number of advanced features.

Gillies Furniture Magento Ecommerce Project
The Challenge
With such a vast catalogue of furniture, it is important that customers can easily find the products they are looking for. We decided to implement Sphinx, which is an advanced search function that includes text prediction, allowing users to find the product they’re looking for easily and quickly.

The Solution
The modern website design allows Gillies to showcase its’ products more beautifully and the site now provides a more user friendly experience. Improvements were made to the order management and fulfilment system with Microsoft Dynamics Nav. As a result, processes are streamlined for both Gillies Furniture and their customers.

Engaging Content

We created a blog to help keep customers up-to-date with the latest furniture collections and news from Gillies. The blog also features feeds from their Twitter and Pinterest to help increase engagement.
