Ben Sherman was a legend in his own right. A man described as ‘always embracing the new and the different’; someone constantly searching for the best of things. He disliked regularity, preferring to search out things that were perceived as unavailable to him. The Ben Sherman shirt and brand have been adopted by almost every youth culture or style movement of the last 5 decades.
In 2016, The Baird Group (Leeds, UK) purchased the Ben Sherman license for selling and distributing the brand in the UK. Immediately, Remarkable Commerce were asked to develop an eCommerce platform with the Remarkable Commerce platform and Manager, migrating away from their previous Magento platform, BenSherman.co.uk successfully relaunched in April 2016, going on to drive year-on-year traffic and revenue growth.
Following this success, Ben Sherman asked Remarkable to develop and relaunch their German site using the Remarkable Commerce Platform, granting the same level of control, agility and functionality as other sites in their portfolio.
Within days of relaunching BenSherman.de, traffic growth across all channels began and ROI was realised within weeks of project delivery. eCommerce conversion rate increased by 109% within 4 weeks and traffic grew by 40%.
“We have worked with Remarkable Commerce for many years, and approached them to relaunch the German Ben Sherman online platform in 2019, based on their experience and agile approach. We were extremely pleased with the results once launched and look forward to developing the brand’s online capabilities further.”Simon Lewis, Director of E-Commerce; Ben Sherman UK, Holland & Germany.
