In 2019, LG extended its offering by producing tailor-made clothing, jewelry, gifts, and other accessories. By participating in local trade and business, LG supported the Long Island region to grow and prosper abundantly.

Technology-related challenges hindered the progress rate by impeding timely updation. Shopify migration was necessary for LG to upgrade user experience and easy navigation. But transferring the data feed became a complicated issue. Such blockades reduced the pace of success and hampered the operation on the Shopify platform.

Key Challenge

Importing data files was a crucial problem identified by LG while changing the online store platform to Shopify. Over 15,000 Stock Keep Units (SKU) from multiple vendors needed to be transferred to the new Shopify site.

Most of the SKU data came from the XO feed and as manual input from clients. Lack of a bulk file import system and space or column for customers to manually enter their data created trouble in updation.

Data analysis, migrating expenditure orders, customers, and product feed turned out to be difficult. Categorizing the relevant feed and transferring the data to the Shopify template seemed to be tiresome and complicated. A firm solution was needed to tackle this issue.
