NailGunDepot.com was one of the first sites to offer fastening solutions in the eCommerce world in 2000. Based in Cincinnati, OH, Nail Gun Depot has been at the forefront of eCommerce innovation in the fastener industry and they are continuing that trend to this day.
Their latest project on Adobe Commerce ensures that they’ll be offering their customers the highest quality of products and customer experience for years to come. Nail Gun Depot began evaluating solutions with Kadro for their new eCommerce site in 2018, ultimately, they decided to move forward with another agency, but the NGD team stayed in touch with the Kadro team. In late 2021, the Nail Gun Depot team decided that their current agency wouldn’t be able to get their new site live and made the decision to have Kadro finish the project and take them live.
The first step of working with Kadro after having part of a site in progress is a code assessment. Our team onboarded the code into our local environment and began reviewing the code, to assess what was built to Adobe’s best practices and what was built incorrectly. Our team delivered a document stating what needed to be done to get the site from its current state to live in production.
Our team found numerous extensions in the code that were not needed, some weren’t even known to the Nail Gun Depot. In addition to the removal of unneeded extensions, there were also misconfigurations that needed to be addressed.
