WINSTON-SALEM, NC (DECEMBER 3, 2019) – Dyehard Fan Supply, an event and retail merchandise marketing and e-commerce company, has launched a new online shopping website for the University of Arkansas. Dyehard created the new website in partnership with WMT Digital, a full-service agency specializing in digital marketing, software engineering and web development. The new Arkansas website can be viewed at shop.arkansasrazorbacks.com.
“Dyehard has introduced an improved online shopping experience for Arkansas customers by building on its best-in-class practices to deliver a superior omni-channel shopping experience,” Dyehard Dyehard CEO Rex Hough said. “Working together with our colleagues at WMT Digital, we developed a proprietary online e-commerce platform.”
“The new Arkansas online store is built with a modern design interface that incorporates a custom Arkansas theme and is specifically tailored to enhance mobile shopping,” Hough added. “The new lightweight experience provides fast load times, intuitive navigation and a simple purchase process with one step checkout that includes an option to use Apple Pay.”
WMT is full-service agency specializing in digital marketing, software engineering and web development.
“We were proud to partner with Dyehard Fan Supply and the Arkansas Razorbacks on this project and are excited to launch a platform that will enhance the Razorback fan’s shopping experience online through a streamlined express checkout process,” WMT Digital Founder and Managing Director Andres Focil said. “Together with Dyehard, we are creating the first true digital ecosystem with the Razorbacks main athletic website to provide an integrated and seamless experience for fans browsing their favorite gear.”
“WMT transformed our web presence 5 years ago when they became the official provider for our athletics website and we’ve seen nothing but growth and innovation since. We expect to see a similarly positive response from our fans as they begin engaging with our new shop experience and we’re excited about the synergies that will exist with having it under the same umbrella as our athletics site,” Arkansas Associate Athletic Director / Marketing and Brand Development Taylor McGillis said.
