Adapt is a leading independent digital agency and Google partner, with expertise covering deep analytics, conversion optimisation, and media buying.


What they needed

Looking to build a shopping platform that could link up the feeds from all their e-commerce clients in a fast search-based website, Adapt (formally SearchStar) approached Pixel Pixel to design, build and host the site.

The website, called ShoppingStar, brought together over 100 clients and 600,000 products. This required a back-end solution that would be able to handle the volume of products without sacrificing the speed of search results. Being a Google partner agency, any platform also needed to conform with the look and feel set out by Google.


How we did it

We designed and built ShoppingStar on October CMS. We chose to utilise an Elastic Search integration to ensure fast search results from anywhere on the site.

To ensure the website met the front-end requirements of being a Google Partner, we utilised Google CSS, to create a visually appealing and easy to use interface to compliment the high-performing back-end.

What the client had to say

Watch how Pixel Pixel helped Adapt (at the time known as SearchStar) design and build a web solution that could handle a large volume of products from multiple feeds and still provide their users with lightning fast search results.
