Take Time Out Entertainment wanted to sell movies online to customers at a low cost, they had a large product database with over 8,000 products that needed to be imported into their site along with running a daily order export to be sent to their fulfilment team to send the orders out.
We used a bespoke theme created by ourselves which was simple and easy to use. The loading time on the site needed to be fast and with so many products available this was key to get a quick sale, we managed to get this down to 1s.
Importing the products became an easy task but found we were pushing WordPress to its limits after the first 5,000 products the admin was slow and almost impossible to load. To overcome this issue we customised the server by adding a load balancer to it, this meant that the traffic would not be effected. We then created a few custom SQL queries to stop the admin overloading.
The results were perfect, the company were very satisfied and have had many orders since.
