Sledgehammer Wintersports are all about skibiking. Thinking of buying one of the safest ski bikes? Or maybe you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind skibike with a bench? Enthusiastic SkiBikers can find such high-quality & affordable skibikes from Sledgehammer Wintersports.
Managing four different sites can be a tough task. Especially if you’re not just selling but also renting these skibikes. That’s why they needed a solution that could transform their WooCommerce sites into a full-fledged rental business. That’s where our plugin Booking & Appointment Plugin for WooCommerce, its Rental System Addon, and Custom Order Numbers for WooCommerce came to their rescue. They’ve been using our plugins and its add-on for quite some time & we thought you’d want to know what they have to share about it.
On behalf of their client Sledgehammer Wintersports, Clive Sheppard, Founder at Synapse IT Group gave us this case study. Have a look:
1) What sort of problem/s have you solved with our plugin/s?
Our client runs 4 different websites. They needed to distinguish clearly which site the order referred to by way of a prefix denoting the site. Clive’s team was able to achieve this differentiation of WooCommerce order numbers using our Custom Order Numbers plugin.
2) How did using the plugin/s change your business?
The Booking & Appointment Plugin for WooCommerce helped to keep the customer’s book-keeper happy!
3) Was there any measurable impact from the moment you started using a plugin of ours till now – growth percentage, the monetary increase over time?
The use of the plugin wasn’t really about increasing sales per se, it was all about helping the online sales fit into an already well-organized business.
4) Did you use any of the extensions in a fun, experimental way?
The plugin is used on sites that are all about having fun in the snow … on skibikes! Take a look here for some action clips and … YES, I’m a skibiker too!
5) Finally, is there anything else that you would like to share with us?
Trying to spread the word about this new way of having fun in the snow has been made easier since offering the skibikes for rental in Austria and Switzerland.
A crucial ingredient has been to use Tyche Softwares’ excellent Booking & Appointment Plugin for WooCommerce combined with the Rental System Addon. Through the use of these Tyche Softwares plugins, our client has been able to run a successful business selling and renting skibikes in Europe.
