Using Experience Driven Commerce to Fan Up!

Forever Collectibles is a leading provider of sports fan gear and apparel—selling lots of it! When they decided to go direct to consumer, they needed a solution that could handle major league sports. It needed to be fast, reliable at scale and simple to manage. It would also provide solid business analytics, leaving out the guesswork. Together with FoCo, we created a platform that provides an immersive sports memorabilia experience and will serve as a platform for the years to come.

Business Challenge

One of the first challenges for Forever Collectibles was the need to merge Adobe Experience Manager, the leading cutting edge CMS platform, with the industry standard shopping experience provided by Magento. Other challenges included the client’s need to make frequent site updates with the ability to add thousands of new configurable products, and to provide real-time updates to product inventories and GP business data.

Infield Digital’s customized solutions successfully integrated the two major platforms, providing a user friendly website with plenty of backend power and analytics to keep Forever Collectibles at the top of their game.
