We’re snap-happy after recently delivering Kenro’s new Shopify Plus website.
Kenro: about the brand.
Kenro is a one-stop-shop for photographic accessories, selling everything from tripods, flash guns and lighting to film, slide and photo scanners. The brand also offers photography-related homeware such as decorative frames, photo memory albums and homewares from its sister brand Kusso. Along with its own exclusive product collection, Kenro’s range also includes complementary products from innovative brands like Nissin, Marumi, Sevenoak and NanGuang.
Supplying both consumers and trade, Kenro is known for consistently delivering knowledgeable advice, reliable service, and great value.
A smooth migration to Shopify Plus.
“Kenro wanted to migrate its B2B and B2C sites to one new website that could effectively manage both,” says Kaja Sztuczka, Project Manager at blubolt. “In addition to opening up more direct-to-consumer opportunities, the brand sought an updated look and feel on the new site.” With these requirements in mind, the blubolt team migrated the old sites to Shopify Plus. In doing so, Kenro has taken advantage of all the native capabilities of Shopify Plus - from quality user experience and scalability to greater in-house control and flexibility.
Hotshot: A sleek custom theme design.
“Kenro wanted a sleek and user-friendly Shopify Plus site design that could effectively house both camera products and homewares without confusing the user,” says Maddy Gale, Designer at blubolt. “As such, we delivered a bespoke Shopify Plus theme on Shopify’s Online Store 2.0 to reflect this.” The new site has an uncluttered design with intuitive navigation that efficiently groups the huge range of product types into Shop Photo, Shop Video, and Shop Living categories. It also has clear product filtering, subtle animation to zoom in on images, and a quick links bar so customers can easily find Kenro’s top product categories.
Wide lens: new features & functionality.
Building with Shopify’s Online Store 2.0, the blubolt team enabled a series of settings to give Kenro greater in-house flexibility and creative control. “Using Shopify’s ‘sections everywhere’, Kenro can now easily update the homepage, collections and product pages without contacting the development team,” says Tom Bellew, Senior Developer at blubolt. “We also set up Shopify Markets, Shopify's new cross-border management tool. This enables Kenro to easily sell internationally from a single store as it handles foreign currencies, languages, domains, duties collection, and payment methods.”
Tech partners for the project include Klaviyo for email marketing, Nosto for product recommendations, Judge.Me for reviews, SparkLayer for B2B and Boost Commerce for product filters and search.
