The Challenge

From his college dorm room in 2008, Miansai founder Michael Saiger was inspired to create jewelry for men that was unlike anything on the market. Today, he has done just that: Created timeless and premium statement pieces that are sold around the world.

Using only the highest quality materials, all Miansai designs are meticulously crafted and created in-house with passionate, hands-on design. The craftsmanship has been praised by a wide range of magazines, with Elle calling the brand “perfectly polished, effortless” and “just different enough to stand out.”

Miansai joined with One Rockwell in December of 2015 with the goal of strengthening technology operations and expanding their online presence.

The Execution: Audit + Transition Process

To bring the Miansai site on board, One Rockwell first conducted a site audit of the code, front-end functionality and business operations, then executed an environment transition, and lastly provided a roadmap for future site enhancements.

Setting up a proper audit requires a thorough review of existing systems, integrations, bug tracking list, feature wish list, admin and maintenance activities, team structure, the front-end user experience, and security protocols. Documentation of each of these areas provides the project management and development teams with useful background when reviewing the site code and making final recommendations.

A security audit of the infrastructure is a key part of the process. IT and developers work closely together to understand the intersection of infrastructure and application to root out any weaknesses. The Magento Enterprise platform has a myriad of features and capabilities often enhanced by third party extensions and it takes a deep understanding of the Magento eco-system and application performance profile and preferences to know which things are well setup and which are wanting for adjustment. We think about it broadly – from how has the site been customized for to match business needs to the server environment that keeps it live to the way the application is setup to interact with that environment.

Following completion of the site audit and transition, One Rockwell outlines a detailed plan for site stabilization and a roadmap for feature additions and promotions. Informed by the site audit, One Rockwell also recommends improvements to the existing hosting infrastructure and other components of the software application ecosystem. The end goal is always to setup scalable infrastructure that gives clients the best of the Magento platform while meeting PCI compliance requirements and offering clear growth path.
