Magento Success Story: Innova Disc Golf United Traffic Surge
Introduction: Innova DGU Magento 2 Implementation
Disc Golf United was created by INNOVA in the early 2000’s to establish a universal system for disc golf players. After establishing a universal handicapping system, they created online services to grow the game of disc golf and create a community for players. The disc golf community is a strong community that supports their players, typically, by buying signature series discs.
The Problem: Traffic Spikes and Performance Issues
Disc Golf United was in the middle of transitioning from Magento 1 to Magento 2 and seeing issues with their online purchasing system. Upon the release of a new product, traffic spikes would hinder the ability for consumers to purchase products.
The largest hurdle for Disc Golf United appeared when releasing new discs, especially tour series discs. The high demand for these products created a buying frenzy that Disc Golf United’s systems could not handle.
The Solution: Magento 2 and Performance Upgrades
Blue Stingray completed the transition to Magento 2 for Disc Golf United, and continued to monitor and improve their e-commerce platform over multiple years.
Without an in-house developer, we’ve relied on Blue Stingray to help us launch our online store. Without them, we would have never gotten off the ground. Now that we are live, Blue Stingray has been a huge help fixing issues, making customizations to the site, improving site performance, making recommendations to help us get to the next level — you name it! They have become a reliable part of the team.
— Adrian Southern, Director, Innova Disc Golf
Blue Stingray maintained the custom functionality important to INNOVA DGU, to provide a solution that resolves the traffic issues of their e-commerce platform without sacrificing company specific needs. The focus on bolstering the capability to handle traffic spikes for a custom solution allowed for consumers to have an overall improved buying experience.
