The challenge
Nearly 1 year after the successful launch of vegemite.com.au, we were tasked with integrating a storefront. Because data needs to be both secure and consistent across scaled AWS instances, the challenge was to develop a system that would safely retain data across a scalable AWS infrastructure.

And launch by June 2018.

Our approach
Our teams quickly implemented a scalable storefront within the existing WordPress website. Our solution included upgrade paths and continuous backups to ensure data integrity. We were able to complete pen testing and launch within 
the desired time frame.

The Vegemite storefront continues to be a successful marketing tool with the ability to scale and grow.

The outcome

  1. An easy to use e-commerce storefront in WordPress and AWS
  2. An extremely fast turnaround time which allowed a pre-launch marketing campaign
  3. Continued implementation of our cloud security procedures with updated protocols for e-commerce websites
  4. A powerful marketing and revenue generation tool for the Vegemite brand
  5. Continued use of the easy to use Content Management System which allows the Vegemite Digital Marketing team to maintain their own e-commerce storefront
