Alma Littera is a well-established brand in the Lithuanian book market, with a long history of supplying high-quality books and educational materials. In order to stay competitive in today’s digital age, they decided to revamp their website by re-designing it and setting up an online store.
It was also essential that the Alma Littera team could easily access and manage the orders from the website and keep track of customer information, while at the same automating the order fulfillment processes as much as possible.

/ The Results
We chose the Shopify platform as the best fit for Alma Littera’s needs, and built a custom website that met all their specifications. The website was based on a theme but required a lot of custom-coded customizations to tailor it to Alma Littera’s branding and needs.
The result is a modern, easy-to-use website with powerful search and filtering capabilities that allows customers to quickly find the books they need. The website also has a powerful back-end system that allows Alma Littera staff to manage customer information, parcels, and payments efficiently.
To provide a smooth user experience and increase sales, we also implemented additional features like wishlist to save items for later, customer accounts to keep track of orders, product reviews to show customers the quality of the books available, and product bundles for up-sell and cross-sell opportunities.
The first 2 weeks brought in 250+ orders and a significant increase in traffic (see screenshot below).

This makes the checkout process smoother and faster for customers, and order fulfillment easier for Alma Littera staff.
