Meet customer demands and realize NA-KD’s ambitions
After the company was founded in 2015, NA-KD had experienced strong growth and were in need of a new e-commerce solution that could meet the company's high ambitions and satisfy the needs of their customers. NA-KD's customer base is characterized by impatience with slow sites and a constant craving for news, trends and inspiration.
Modern commerce is all about being able to quickly adapt your offer and your content to new customer behavior and trends, with the help of data.
The fashion company therefore needed speed, performance and a solid ground to build their website on, to be able to keep up with customer demands and really stand out.
We want to offer a unique e-commerce experience to women all over the world. To succeed, we need to continuously develop our site and its content. With Avensia as a partner, we have the opportunity to manage our customers' high expectations while meeting our goals for growth.

A blazingly fast site focused on inspiration
NA-KD decided to build their new site on the Optimizely Commerce platform (formerly Episerver), with Avensia’s e-commerce framework Avensia Nitro on top. The combination gives them a solid and scalable ground to work from, as they continue their online success story. The load times are blazingly fast and thanks to clever engineering, the performance is great, even on mobile when the network is shaky. This is especially important as the target group is very impatient.
With 3 million followers on Instagram, and strong focus on influencer marketing and influencer collections, reliable connections with social media and other important marketing channels are crucial. The Avensia Nitro framework, in combination with the dedicated development team at Avensia, is a perfect fit for NA-KD's needs. It gives them a low threshold to test and add new features and functionality, to stay innovative and give their customers new and inspiring experiences.
The turnaround for the first year with the new e-commerce, 2017, was $43,000. In 2018, it was doubled and the growth rate was 95%. Only during Black Week 2018 NA-KD sold for $10.2 Million. In 2019, the Black Week numbers more than doubled, to $25 Million.
During Episerver Ascend in Stockholm in May 2018, it was announced that NA-KD won the Episerver Award in the category E-commerce site of the year. This is the motivation from the Episerver jury:
"Together with Avensia, NA-KD has developed one of the most modern e-commerce sites in the world. With Avensias's framework, Avensia Nitro, the site is unbelievably fast and works well even when the network is poor. This fits NA-KD's primary target group perfectly, young women who make most of their purchases with their phones. The release of the new site, with revolutionary speed, stability and quality, together with a seamless connection to social media, has taken the company to a leading position within e-commerce".
Constantly evolving digital commerce experiences
NA-KD's offer is constantly developed in collaboration with the members of the dedicated development team at Avensia, who spends most of their time on new functionality and innovative solutions for NA-KDs demanding customers.
NA-KD is one of several retailers in the fashion industry who have chosen to work with Avensia as a long-term partner, with a dedicated development team.
The fashion industry probably has the most demanding customers, which also means that fashion retailers have reached a high level of digital maturity. We learn a lot from working with NA-KD and we look forward to continuing together on this amazing journey with them. I believe that we can accomplish great things together.
Patrik Sundquist, Director New Business, Avensia
We are delighted with both the technical solution and our partner Avensia. We will continue to work closely together in further developing our website.
