Beacon Lighting needs no introduction as Australia’s leading specialist lighting retailer with over 99 company owned and franchise stores across the country. Our partnership with Beacon Lighting commenced in 2011 with the complete re-architecture and re-design of their online stores on the Magento Commerce. Since that time we have continued to expand and innovate the platform to help grow Beacon’s share in the B2C and B2B markets across lighting and specialist categories including solar and ceiling fans. Today, Beacon with our strategic and development support, operate online stores targeting the consumer and home improvement markets, trade and commercial markets comprising electricians, architects and interior designers.
The solution is a compelling example of how Magento’s continuous innovation and feature releases has powered the on and offline sales of a growing retailer.
The Beacon Lighting Trade customers can apply online and get approved to purchase goods from the Beacon Trade website which has price benefits and rewards for continued engagement and loyalty. Balance Internet had partnered with Beacon Lighting in 2011 and continues to provide ongoing strategy, digital consultancy and technical support.
