Ecommerce Website Re-development Launch

Army and Outdoors website launch

The new Army and Outdoors (formally Kiwi Disposals) ecommerce site was launched after a couple of months of planning, development and refining. The final product is a very user-friendly site that works well on all devices from mobile phones to desktop computers.

With well over 800 products it was important to create a navigation system that was intuitive and easy to use. The site features:

  • Fully responsive (mobile ready)
  • Auto complete search
  • Wishlist/product compare
  • Facebook integration
  • Email newsletter integration

The site also has a powerful admin for managing orders and products with automated stock control.

London School Site Launch

StMargarets-webWe launched London School, St Margaret's website last week. It was great to be able to work closely with them in the build process through Skype and sharing documents using Google drive.

The site features a password protected parents area as well as galleries, calendar integration, document uploads and an on-line club booking form.

Registered admin staff can log on to keep the site updated using a very easy WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface.

Christ the King Make-over Launch

Christ the King Make-over Launch

Christ the King Burnside website make-over is now completed. It was originally built using an on-line web building service but as the site grew it was more and more difficult to maintain. The site structure was confusing and the design was out-dated.

We were able to work along-side Christ the King Catholic Church and create a site which is user friendly, modern looking and most importantly, easy for the staff to maintain and keep updated. Key staff have login access which lets them easily add bulletins, calendar events and edit content as necessary.
