Chris Fuller, Business Development Manager at Electro-tech (ea) Ltd, approached Cox Web Design to help promote the company's latest marketing campaign. Since the company was looking to expand to offer a full procurement solution to its customers, Chris really wanted a strong web presence that complimented both his printed literature and email marketing material. The company had already purchased a template that they wanted adapting to coincide with their needs, therefore Cox Web Design worked carefully to maintain this preference and to incorporate the general template layout into the final design.
After several telephone calls and a face-to-face meeting, Cox Web Design had written a complete specification, to provide both Chris and ourselves with a structured overview of how the site will operate and the information that it will contain. Several prototypes were created to allow Chris to pick and choose colour schemes and layouts that best demonstrated his vision of the company brand.
One of Chris's requirements was to produce a Special Offers page that could be easily updated by himself or a member of staff. To achieve this XML files were used to clearly represent the page information in a readable form making the contents of the page easy to edit without having to resort to editing the page's HTML code. This system was then replicated for many of the other pages, allowing Chris to easily maintain the site as needed.
An additional bespoke feature was the integration of online forms, allowing the user to complete orders and requests online. Both orders and requests are automatically sent to the customer and the Electro-tech sales team, improving the efficiency of the order management process.
During the development process, Electro-tech decided they really wanted to make a statement on their front page. They queried whether it would be possible to create a globe with their company strap lines rotating around the outside. Cox Web Design eagerly accepted the challenge and produced a result that truly impressed Chris and the rest of the team, both within time and in budget.
Chris and the rest of Electro-tech are extremely happy with their new site, which has already helped secure them a new account and has received excellent feedback from their customers. Looking forward Electro-tech hope to integrate an online e-commerce system to increase their online custom and expand their services to an even wider audience.
Michelle came to Cox Web Design looking for a site to promote both herself and her sport. Being one of the top Paralympic dressage riders in the country, it was important to Michelle that the site should reflect her pride for her country and that the professionalism of the site reflect the professional level of her riding.
As Michelle had requested that the site feature a union jack, Cox Web Design took the concept one step further so that the union jack itself composed the very layout of the site.
The site also provides Michelle with a diary and gallery page, that she can keep updated when on tour to inform both current and potential sponsors with regards to her current progress in events and competitions.
This site was created in budget, within a timescale of just over a week. Cox Web Design continues to work with Michelle in order to maintain additional content as well as the addition of extra functionality to her site.
Since Simtra Bikes had already successfully created their own Canadian distribution website, Cox Web Design was approached by their UK distributers to create a UK-specific version of the site http://www.simtrabikes.com, with the addition of e-commerce functionality. This involved a partial re-write of the site's code to coincide with the UK site's requirements as well as the addition of an online checkout system.
The majority of the artwork was ported from the original site, with some optimisations made by Cox Web Design. The products pages were also reworked to coincide with the e-commerce system.
The work carried out with Simtra illustrates Cox Web Design's ability to work with existing systems, adding extra functionality in order to enhance their productivity.
For Cox Web Design, life began with Tarty Bikes. Founder, Dave Cox, first started working with Tarty Bikes over two years ago, when the company was first forming. What started as a simple brochure site to display product information, soon turned into a high-end ecommerce system, with a custom-built checkout that plugged straight into their HSBC merchant account.
Both the design and layout have stayed consistent throughout the last two years and worked to great effect. A simple crisp interface with uncomplicated menus allows Tarty Bikes' customers to find and order products quickly with the minimum of fuss.
Last year, the site had become so successful, that Tarty Bikes called upon Cox Web Design to streamline their order processing operations in order to more effectively cope with the high volume of orders they had been receiving. Therefore we created a fully customised order management system that allowed Tarty Bikes to track and manage their orders, as well as generate automatic packing slips. A task that usually took up to 10 minutes per order had been reduced to no time at all.
Both throughout and before the life of Cox Web Design, we have always maintained strong links with Tarty Bikes, maintaining and optimising their site to allow them to get the best out of their online systems. Their latest site has substantially increased their sales due to the ease of ordering and the time saved processing orders is now being better spent expanding their business in other areas. Soon we will be incorporating a wider range of bespoke features into their site which will truly enhance their customer experience.
