Our Solution for Hack Up

Hack Up
Sales growth of more than 400% in 3 years
Business saved from closure with PCI compliance help
£25,000+ sales over one weekend
Conversion rate of 70% and client retention rate of 80%

The Challenge

Growing from a small local provider to a leading national supplier of bespoke, natural horse supplements, Hack Up provide personalised next-day delivery service. Combining face-to-face marketing with digital campaigns and back-end automation, supported by its strong website and hosting solution, HackUp has seen 400% growth since moving to UKFast.

As a niche business finding its feet online, Hack Up was threatened by falling foul of PCI:DSS and facing the closure of its accounts. The business needed security guarantees, UK-based round-the-clock support and a host flexible and responsive enough to meet the changing needs of a fast-growing retailer.

Over the Black Friday weekend of 2015, we had sales of more than £25,000, compared to the £165 per day sales of the previous year. The website coped perfectly.

The Solution we Delivered

A dedicated managed server solution with support for security experts and a dedicated account manager with UKFast solved the problems relating to payments and PCI compliance.

Adding a Webcelerator ensured that the website is not only secure, it's fast and responsive to peaks in traffic thanks to HackUp's partnership with sister company Fizz Equine Marketing.
