Design and develop an e-commerce website for a jewellery company with Content Management System. Designed a brand and website based on client brief. Client did not have much information on his proposed products, so we developed an online utility that ‘grabbed’ product information, including imagery, from suppliers websites. This information was also used to improve the SEO of the site. We selected OpenCart to be the e-commerce engine and CMS because of it’s flexibility and ease-of-use, so client could ‘self-manage’ after a training session with us.

RETREAT HOME AND GIFT

retreat-home.com

Design and develop a website that was useable by Retail and Wholesale customers linked into the client’s warehouse system. The client had an existing warehouse system that had to be integrated with the website. Using ASP and XML a bespoke system was developed to enable orders to be taken on the website and sent to Microsoft Retail Management System whilst stock levels were synchronised. The challenge of this site was that the wholesale customers needed to purchase in case sizes at multiple pricing levels versus Retail customers who purchased in single units using a different pricing structure and VAT rules.
