Retail & Ecommerce

Is your online store not performing as well as it should?

No matter what you sell, you need an ecommerce platform which provides your customers with a seamless experience whether that platform is an off-the-shelf system, entirely custom built or a hybrid of both.

An effective sales funnel needs intuitive UX and a captivating design which doesn’t sacrifice functionality.

Off-the-shelf platforms

We can build ecommerce platforms using the following off-the-shelf solutions: 

Open source

Magento, X Cart, Zen Cart, OpenCart, VirtueMart, osCommerce, Sylius, PrestaShop, WooCommerce

Closed source

WordPress solutions, Shopify, BigCommerce

PHP-based ecommerce platform, Magento, is one of the most popular and feature-rich and can do almost anything an online shop needs to do while Shopify has been praised for its simplicity – both in terms of setting up an online shop and website administration. A number of WordPress ecommerce solutions exist right now, with WooCommerce being one of the most popular; we have successfully worked with the majority of them. 

Bespoke Ecommerce Platforms

An off-the-shelf solution might not be able to offer you the kind of performance, reliability or scalability you need and you may think the answer is a custom build. Before launching into any type of bespoke build we will seek to understand and capture your requirements and weigh up whether custom is best, or if there is a hybrid solution (bringing together some elements which are off-the-shelf and some which are custom) which might bridge the best of both worlds. If the best way forward is a custom solution then we can define everything down to the smallest detail, to work for your business now, and further in the future. Our expertise section documents the elements intrinsic to a bespoke, successful ecommerce build.


Ecommerce website design

Our designers can bring to life sites that are balanced with simple, easy-to-navigate site structures, strong branding and striking imagery. 


Payments and security for Ecommerce sites 

Whenever we build ecommerce sites we always ensure that they are integrated with a payment provider – such as Paypal, Stripe or WorldPay – which gives a seamless checkout experience and that protects users data. 


UI / UX for ecommerce

Ecommerce sites should be designed as a functional and efficient sales funnel – the success of such a site can only really be measured by the number of completed purchases. Through UX and UI best practice – usability, effective presentation, user retention, among a number of other factors – a site can be on its way to achieving that. 


Self service kiosk

Our ecommerce experience extends further than just web-based services; we’ve worked with some of the biggest names in the ticketing sector, having designed bespoke software for self-service payment machines in one of the UK’s most-loved cultural institutions. From designing a complex user journey and workflow to assisting with the hardware installation, we led a seamless custom, touch-screen ecommerce build from start to finish.
