eCommerce Web Design & Development.
We love web design and know the importance of a beautiful and brilliant website. It’s your shop window and it needs to appeal to your customers, both present and future and to showcase your products or services. Your website also needs to be consistent with your overall business and brand and complement your other marketing channels and customer touch points.
So whilst we can simply build you a website, it’s really important for us to go further. Whether you’re a large, established company looking to replatform your current site, or you want a website for a small business and you’re just starting up, it’s important we listen and learn from you. This allows us to get a full and complete understanding of your challenges, successes and future objectives so we can consider these within the website requirements. With our specialist eCommerce consultancy our team will help you define these requirements so we can deliver a solution that’s best for you and your customers, both now and in the future.
When it comes to website platforms, we have worked on many. However, we are a Shopify Partner, more recently also a BigCommerce Partner and we love Magento. Each has their own balance of features, ease of use and complexity (and cost) so here is an overview of the platforms we prefer to use.
eCommerce Platforms We Love.
Shopify offers one of the most easy to use content management systems (CMS) enabling business owners to take control of their online operation with little or no previous experience. As well as providing all the key features your business needs to get up and running, there is also an extensive eco system of apps which can easily extended the capabilities of your website as you grow.
As a open-SaaS platform, BigCommerce is great for mid-market businesses as well as being a a consideration for businesses looking to reduce the total cost of ownership of running more complex, hosted solutions (on premise or cloud) such as Adobe Commerce (Magento). The CMS is easy to use and there is more capability for advanced custom development which may facilitate faster growth.
Magento is an open-source platform that offers a fantastic feature set and more advanced flexibility than some of the SaaS solutions.
With Adobe Commerce (formerly Magento) being more advanced, we choose to partner with leading agencies who are Magento certified developers. Our added value is to become more of an extension of your team in the website requirement briefs, agency tender and selection process and when it comes to user acceptance testing with regular touch points along the course of the project. We know the platform well and can act as your solutions specialist to help ensure you get exactly what you need with a roadmap to help you grow after launch.
When it comes to our e-commerce management and consultancy we have platforms we prefer to work with, but in no way does that limit us to using others! In the past we have also worked with Squarespace, Wix, Prestashop and Joomla. We are flexible when it comes to website building and can work with just about any platform. We work with our clients needs and what will work best for them, we take into consideration ease of use, cost effectiveness and how easy the site will be to manage from the clients perspective.
