Serious retailers who demand results, choose Guidance.
Trusted by Internet Retailer Top 500
For the last 17 years, we have been the eCommerce agency of record for the largest retailer of Nike products in the world.
Our development teams are comprised of the most seasoned technologists, information architects, graphic designers, and project managers. And, our commitment to continuous training and certifications is unparalleled in the industry. Our developers are Magento-certified and, in some cases, former Magento employees.
Our expertise is honored in the industry. We are a multi-award winning recipient, honored for our user experience, design and technological innovation. So much so, that our very own website received a prestigious Webby Award in 2013.
For high-conversion Magento Enterprise solutions, winning retailers choose strong partners to realize their visions. Guidance offers everything required for a one-stop Magento solution – focused on your business needs:
- UX & Creative Design
- Hosting & Managed Services
- Platform Training
- Mobile Apps & Sites
- Optimization & SEO
Working as an extension of your team, Guidance is partner, not a vendor. We guide you through the complete process and help you by:
- Setting the strategic direction for a future-proof solution
- Providing analysis-driven recommendations for planned enhancements to meet current and future needs
- Employing Agile design methodologies and careful project management for efficient and cost-effective projects that are on schedule and within budget
At times, a turnkey solution may not be what you need:
- You’ve already deployed your site and you just require hosting & managed services.
- You’re already on Magento Enterprise and you just want to upgrade to the latest version.
- You’ve deployed a Magento site, but it’s not optimized and your SEO needs work.
- You’ve hired new marketing staff that isn't knowledgeable on how to update a Magento Enterprise site and require training.
Our professional services teams immerse themselves in your business to evaluate current performance, identify opportunities, define requirements, and construct award-winning eCommerce solutions to jumpstart your online channel.
UX & Creative Design Services
The success of a complex eCommerce site depends on a solid user experience. Our creative user interface and design experts work with you to understand your goals and audience. We create a clear and compelling brand presence that drives engagement, action and retention; most importantly, converting browsers to buyers.
Web Development Services
Ad agencies build marketing campaigns and ads for print and TV. Web development is neither. At its core for 20 years, Guidance is Los Angeles’ leading technology company that’s focused on online retail web development, and nothing else.
3rd Party Integration Services
Guidance integrates dozens of today’s leading commerce technologies, such as MyBuys (personalization), Authorize.net (payment gateways), Endeca (SEM), Amazon (Amazon Web Services), Kana and LivePerson (live chat), CommerceHub (fulfillment), and EdgeCast (content delivery).
We integrate our Magento Enterprise solutions with existing or new order management systems, warehouse management systems, ERP/financial back-ends, and customer service solutions.
Hosting & Managed Services
It's November and you’ve just been the victim of a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. What will you do?
Guidance hosts and provides managed services for over 85% of its clients. With 99.99% uptime, hundreds of server monitors, and predictable monthly fees, Guidance’s 24x7x365 proactive maintenance ensures the best performance possible and piece of mind, even in the Amazon cloud (using AWS).
Don’t trust your business continuity to large companies who claim to provide fanatical support at fantastical rates. Clients all over the world have trusted Guidance since 1993.
Hundreds of Magento websites have been deployed by Guidance. Magento has certified us as knowledge experts and have awarded our expertise time and again.
We will teach you the “ins and outs” of easily updating and managing your Magento Enterprise site to ensure higher conversion. Your training will be customized to your business requirements and we will provide you “quick tips” and functional guides for future reference.
Mobile Sites & Apps Development Services
Forrester cites that "mobile commerce is expected to reach $31 billion by 2016." Will you be a part of that growth?
We've created a broad array of apps for Apple, Android and Blackberry phones that drive sales for leading retailers. Our expertise includes mobile interface design, iTunes App Store placement & launch, and integration to ERP systems.
We also design mobile websites that are amazingly fast and explicitly designed for specific devices.
Optimization & SEO Services
Take your business beyond PPC. Guidance’s clients leverage keyword rankings, measurable traffic growth, increased brand visibility, and collaborative campaign development.
Learn how Guidance can create solutions optimized for video & product recommendations, live help, targeting & testing, loyalty programs, search engine submissions, social bookmarking, website content optimization, search engine marketing (SEM), blogging and overall website promotion for Google and Yahoo.
