Capgemini’s LYONSCG creates immersive digital experience for FootJoy’s new luxury product collection
FJ1857.com showcases the art of shoemaking with elevated design and shopping features
Chicago – January 10, 2019 – Lyons Consulting Group (LYONSCG), part of Capgemini, today announced the next phase of its engagement with FootJoy, an Acushnet company and maker of superior golf footwear, gloves and accessories. LYONSCG’s implementation and support teams were tapped to build and optimize the FJ1857.com site, showcasing FootJoy’s new luxury collection for golf enthusiasts.
“FootJoy wanted to release an elevated site experience that represents the premium brand. Together with our FootJoy creative team and LYONSCG, we were able to achieve that,” said Kristina Hennessey, Head of Direct to Consumer Business Operations at FootJoy.
FootJoy knew its FJ1857 eCommerce site needed to be an exceptional brand experience, and a reflection of the premium line of products on display. FootJoy turned to LYONSCG, a trusted partner for more than three years, to bring to life the sophisticated features and experience FootJoy designed for the site.
The FJ1857 collection is presented as an immersive digital experience from the moment a visitor reaches the site. The homepage greets customers with an engaging video overlay and an assortment of premium products. This approach showcases FootJoy’s craftsmanship in a new light, and the storytelling nature of the site encourages shoppers to spend more time engaging with the brand and learning about the extensive, 150-step shoemaking process.
“LYONSCG is proud to have worked with the Acushnet Company on a variety of instrumental projects over several years,” said Dave Barr, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President at LYONSCG, part of the Capgemini Group. “With the recently launched FJ1857 site, luxury crafted shoes and apparel are showcased using video overlay and photography. This design elevates the customer’s online shopping experience to a whole new level.”
