MARINA DEL REY, Calif. (April 20, 2017) – Guidance, a customer centric commerce services provider that enables branded manufacturers, distributors, and merchants to accelerate growth, announced today that Tech to Commerce, a Guidance client since 2015, has recently been recognized as an IR Top 1000 merchant.
Tech to Commerce designs, owns and operates a portfolio of websites including essentialhardware.com, pupdaddy.com, marinescreens.com, Yumza.com, and Gracegreens.com. All of these sites are uniquely positioned in their respective business verticals.

Guidance was able to clearly identify the issues and fix the theme and codebase and perform the necessary upgrade to the latest version of Magento Enterprise Edition. As a result, Tech to Commerce can now further scale their business, leverage any customizations without duplicating efforts, and take advantage of significant cost savings and operational efficiencies. Online revenue growth for essentialhardware.com is almost 60% with average order value (AOV) increasing 2.52%.
