One of Our Past Shopify Projects
Northern Brewer reached out to Valtira to perform an assessment of their current IT and eCommerce infrastructure in preparation for their next stage of growth after being acquired by ZX Ventures, Anheuser-Busch’s disruptive growth unit.
Northern Brewer’s Need
Northern Brewer faced many technological challenges including a series of custom-built systems that ran the warehouse and connected different software systems together. As some of the systems were built and maintained internally, it was important to have a thoroughly documented IT infrastructure to allow for knowledge transfer as they moved to their next stage of growth.
Valtira was selected to lead the IT team through this technological and leadership transition.
Streamline and Prepare for Scale
Valtira led the strategy and worked with Northern Brewer leadership to simplify their systems and prioritize IT work during the transition. During the same time, Valtira led some key initiatives including selecting and onboarding a Managed Service Provider and supporting their platforms from a DevOps / IT Director perspective.
In preparation for Black Friday, Valtira load tested and optimized their marketing and eCommerce systems in Amazon Web Services, removing historical pain points.
A Full Magento to Shopify Migration
During the planning process, Valtira and Northern Brewer worked together to migrate to Shopify as a better platform that would meet their growing needs. Valtira completed a high-level feasibility study to determine the best path forward including any roadblocks in their internal systems or deployed solutions.
Through the process of working with Valtira, Northern Brewer gained valuable insight on how to improve the management of their IT infrastructure and eCommerce platform — enabling them to plan the future needs of their growing business.
