Lashbrook Rings

Reaching 1000s of Unique Paid Users with Top-10 Ranked Mobile App

Ordering a customized wedding ring is a complex process—especially online. As a company specializing in custom, handcrafted wedding rings, this was a problem Lashbrook was all too familiar with. While the process for ordering custom rings worked great in person, Lashbrook needed a way to give shoppers that same experience and satisfaction online. By trusting Tech9 to build the digital experience, Lashbrook opened a new revenue stream, improved their profit margins, and increased their average order value by 25%.

Background

Being a jewelry designer & manufacturer, Lashbrook chose to partner with a third-partner software developer to create their online store. Unfortunately, the first attempt at outsourcing development went south, failing to capture the vision and leaving Lashbrook with cash in the fire and nothing to show for it.

What went wrong?

As is all too common in the world of software development, the developer didn’t ask the right questions up front, preferring instead to work from a spec list. As newcomers to software development, Lashbrook felt frustrated with their first tech partner and ultimately turned to LinkedIn for recommendations of a software development team who could build the software they needed the right way.

Lashbrook meets Tech9

In early meetings together, Tech9 learned all about Lashbrook’s vision for creating a user-friendly online ring ordering experience. Tech9’s deep understanding of the technical requirements translated to software that allows for live, on screen ring customization.Regular communication, including weekly check-ins and even having a Tech9 developer work from Lashbrook’s office for a number of months, kept the project on target and on budget.

Forging a Bond

Rather than treating the project as a one-time transaction, Tech9 & Lashbrook established a vision for the end product, forming a long-term partnership built on trust and happy software.

The functionality of the website that Tech9 created sets us apart from any competition.
