Read Bible Verses Here, Purchase Bibles Over There

Over several years, Biblica had built a custom web content management system which had become cumbersome to maintain and improve. Further complicating matters, purchasing NIV Bibles utilizing ecommerce capabilities and consuming Bible content created “breaks” in the user experience consistency and difficulty maintaining the two systems separately.

Biblica engaged NetRelations and Luminos Labs to design and launch a new site experience for reading and purchasing the NIV Bible with specific goals of improving average user’s time on site and increased conversion rate for bible purchases. Luminos Labs ™ was charged with the technical execution of migrating the previously federated experiences (between CMS and Commerce) onto a single platform to serve a unified experience for across all user tasks.

Luminos Labs and NetRelations Delivered A Unified Content and Commerce with Episerver

Luminos Labs and NetRelations collaborated to deliver a fresh unified experience for reading the bible online and making purchases of the bible online within a single implementation of Episerver Web Content Management (WCM) and eCommerce Platform. Some of the key features of the Episerver platform that were leveraged include:

  • Responsive Mobile Design
  • Spanish and English versions of the site
  • Supports Consumer and B2B Bible Purchases

Episerver Web Content Management (WCM) and Ecommerce was selected because of the unified product roadmap, ease of use for non-technical site administrators.
