Lighting New York Launches New Website on Salesforce Commerce Cloud with Digital Agency CQL

Lighting New York

Lighting New York, a leading e-retailer in lighting and home decor, announced the launch of its new website, in partnership with Digital Agency CQL. The new site is part of a complete transformation of Lighting New York’s digital ecosystem on Salesforce Commerce Cloud (SFCC), featuring a new brand design, an innovative user experience, award-winning customer service as recognized by Newsweek, and a scalable framework for over 100+ microsites.

Prior to the launch, Lighting New York was struggling with a home-grown commerce solution, an extensive website feature roadmap, costly development, and difficulty scaling their business. Partnering with CQL, Lighting New York evaluated several enterprise commerce solutions, ultimately selecting Salesforce Commerce Cloud (SFCC) due to its scalability, multi-site framework, responsive design, ability to handle complex integrations, and best-in-class tools for its internal teams to use.

The combination of Salesforce Commerce Cloud’s powerful commerce platform and CQL was a great match for Lighting New York, states CEO Derek Kloostra. “As part of Lighting New York’s core values, we prefer to work with partners that want to foster long-lasting relationships aimed at mutual success. We found that CQL aligned with not only the technical aptitude requirements in Salesforce Commerce Cloud, but also the culture, vision, and values of our brand.”

The new site illuminates Lighting New York’s high quality, an unparalleled customer journey that leads shoppers seamlessly through nearly 1 million SKUs, and a commitment to excellent customer service with anytime access to certified lighting experts. With over 150 brand pages, features a robust navigation, designer bios, access to designer collections, and product pages with extensive product details, product collections, and recommended products of similar styles.

“Lighting New York is a great example of how powerful Salesforce Commerce Cloud can be for our enterprise-level clients. Our team was able to elevate their brand with a full mobile-responsive redesign, and then replicate the site – complete with its backend integrations – to over 100 microsites using SFCC’s scalable, multi-site framework. Moving from a home-grown solution to SFCC has laid a new foundation for growth for Lighting New York, and we look forward to our continued partnership,” says Scott Robertson, Managing Director at CQL.
