MARINA DEL REY, Calif. (February 2, 2017) – Guidance, a customer centric commerce services provider that enables branded manufacturers, distributors, and merchants to accelerate growth, announced today that it has successfully launched Brixton, a lifestyle brand within the Altamont Capital Partners (ACP) portfolio of companies, on Magento’s next generation digital commerce platform, Magento Enterprise 2.1.
Renegade Brands, a team created by ACP to provide strategic guidance, leadership and shared services to its portfolio of action sports and lifestyle brands, chose Guidance to help them deliver a high quality, engaging and consistent shopping experience across their mobile and digital commerce channels. It was also critically important to achieve cost efficiencies with a unified platform that could be leveraged across all of the brand portfolio but still allow for each individual brand to maintain its own unique style and communication. Finally, they needed to do all of this in record time in order to be ready for their peak selling season.
“Guidance worked quickly to re-platform and rebuild our site, which we needed given our very aggressive time to market goals,” said Andy Creighton, Director of E-Commerce at Brixton. “Thanks to Guidance’s work, we now have a very flexible, scalable and fully integrated website on the Magento 2.1 platform.”
Brixton is the first brand in the Renegade Brands portfolio to launch on Magento 2.1. Renegade Brands is currently working with Guidance to launch more brands on Magento 2.1 in 2017. “We are very excited to utilize the platform to efficiently manage multiple brands, including international sites, across the Renegade Brands portfolio,” said Shannon Graziano, Leader of Digital Programs at Renegade Brands.
“Renegade Brands is a digital commerce trailblazer who is committed to providing their customers with the highest levels of customer convenience and satisfaction in the industry,” said Jason Meugniot, CEO at Guidance. “They recognize the critical role that technology plays in their success and we are delighted to continue our partnership in 2017 and beyond.”
