Powerstride Battery


Company Overview

Powerstride Battery, based in Los Angeles, is a global distributor of battery and battery-related products for the automotive, commercial, industrial, golf, RV, marine, telecommunications, and high technology markets.


Business Challenges

Powerstride came to GHIIS with an outdated ecommerce web site that was prohibiting the company from online growth. The company has 10 brick and mortar retail locations in the Los Angeles area and had the goal of making the web site a top 11th virtual “location.”


The Solution

GHIIS completely redesigned the company’s web site with a customized ecommerce web design built upon the Magento platform. Magento allows a very powerful ecommerce solution right out of the box, with almost unlimited ability to customize and grow with the needs of any online business. GHIIS’ web site design team built an easy-to-use interface that helps brand the company, and our e-commerce developers programmed Magento to handle the thousands of products in the Powerstride catalog.

In addition to the base Magento e-commerce system, GHIIS also developed custom modules/plugins for the site, including:

  • Custom “battery finder” wizard that helps the user find the right battery for their application
  • Customized shipping options that allowed Powerstride Battery sales representatives to ship from the Powerstride warehouses, or third-party vendors to drop-ship the product

But what good is a powerful e-commerce design and solution, if nobody ever visits the web site? Powerstride needed a focused digital marketing campaign to drive new sales from their investment.

GHIIS provides a full-service search engine optimization (SEO) campaign that not only brings more traffic to the company’s Los Angeles stores, but also has consistently driven new traffic via search engines month after month to the online e-commerce store. This has resulted in record-breaking sales and has turned the online store into a top performer.

The results are in…

  1. In two years of doing business with GHIIS, Powerstride’s web site traffic has seen a 150% increase, seeing an increase in sales.
  2. Powerstride’s internal internet marketing team has complete control over the web site’s content and online catalog, freeing them from having to depend on GHIIS for every update.
