Salesforce Commerce Cloud Case Study: Costa Del Mar​

Redesigning and Replatforming the Costa Del Mar Website onto Salesforce Commerce Cloud​

Costa Del Mar is the world’s leading manufacturer of performance sunglasses. The brand got its start in 1983 when die-hard fishermen, who regularly battled extreme elements and conditions, came to realize the sunglasses they were relying on weren’t as hardcore as their adventures.

After seeing consecutive years of explosive growth, Costa began realizing some limitations on their current ecommerce platform and turned to CQL to launch their online store on Salesforce Commerce Cloud. We implemented their new ecommerce platform and reimagined the user experience, enabling them to capitalize on the momentum they were experiencing in the market.
