The Upside approached PaintedRobot over a year ago with a website that had recently been relaunched by a local branding agency but that was having a number of issues from bugs to stability and performance.
With an agreed upon retainer, PaintedRobot was able to show value almost instantly due to our extensive knowledge in E-Commerce and WordPress (which is what their platform is built on).
Since then, PaintedRobot has been The Upside’s go-to development team for over a year now providing services that range from general maintenance on their ecommerce platform to developing custom features and functionality.
When The Upside came to PaintedRobot, their website was crashing at least once every day. PaintedRobot worked with The Upside to help improve the page load time from 10+ seconds to under 2. This optimization significantly reduced the amount of time it took staff to perform routine administration tasks.
As an E-Commerce company, The Upside continues to enhance and improve their platform for the best customer experience. PaintedRobot works along-side providing new features and functionality.
The biggest concern from an ecommerce standpoint is “can I scale to support a growing number of visits and purchases”. PaintedRobot is working with The Upside to continue to implement solutions that support future growth.
