Building successful online stores for over 17 years!
Ecommerce websites that work.
We have been creating ecommerce websites since 1998. Some of the sites we have built have been so successful that their owners have been able to sell up and retire to the beach!
A great many websites today are created using off the shelf software and can be referred to as ‘stand alone applications’.
This means they become rapidly out of date as soon as newer versions of the software are released. In fact, over a relatively short period of time, websites that are built in this way can become so outdated that they are impossible to upgrade without significant website downtime and increased future costs for the website owner. Sometimes the only way to upgrade an outdated system like this is to do a costly rebuild from scratch.
Unlike a lot of web design companies, we don’t use third party stand alone software to create our client's websites.
Our ecommerce platform (Absolute Shopping Cart) is a next generation cloud based solution which has been completely designed in house by our own developers.
Developing our own cloud based software helps us provide many benefits to our clients. Most importantly, it enables us to offer a much higher level of customer support which starts at initial design and build process and continues through the whole life of the website.
We can also offer more complex and customised functionality when it's required without having to search the internet for obscure plugins or extensions that have been written by third party developers.
Whatever type of ecommerce solution you choose for your business, we highly recommend that you try out it's management system for size before you make your final decision. The website administration system should be simple to use and easy to understand. Sadly, many such systems are overly complicated and time consuming to operate. Our advice is 'try before you buy' the last thing you need is be stuck with a system which you or your staff are unable to operate efficiently.
We are confident that you will find our own platform very easy to use but don't just take our word for it, click here to arrange a free live demo.
Look at me!
Unless you are selling something totally unique there is likely to be a lot of other companies offering very similar products to yourselves.
This means your website needs to stand out from the crowd and create an instant connection with your visitors. It must also be simple to navigate and as easy possible for customers to place orders. For us, getting the balance right between design and usability is absolutely essential.
A well thought out and professionally designed ecommerce website should have the right amount of impact to impress it's visitors whilst also being able to convert them into buyers as quickly as possible. This simple formula is something we work hard to achieve with every website we create.
Cloud based continual development
To keep pace with the rapidly evolving internet, our Absolute Shopping Cart ecommerce software is a cloud based solution which is under continual development. We are constantly adding new features, useful tools and other improvements. Each update automatically applied to our client’s websites as part of the standard monthly hosting and support package. This helps to make our client’s websites virtually future proof because they are always using the most up to date version of the software.
We have an experienced team of expert in house designers who have created websites for virtually every type of business you can imagine. Design is very subjective so it's important to understand your target market and not to stray too far from tried and tested practices that are proven to work.
If you have looked through our website portfolio you will already have seen the high standard of ecommerce web design work which we provide to all of our clients.
All of our custom built websites are designed from scratch. If you order a custom design from us, that is exacttly what you will receive. We don't use pre built themes. It's important for us to mention this because we know from experience that a lot of websites are created using pre built themes which are then passed off as original design work.
17 years of building successful websites has enabled us to develop a very streamlined design & build process which enables us to deploy our client’s sites very quickly and efficiently without compromising on the quality of the finished project. This inevitably helps us to reduce costs and offer prices that are up to two thirds lower than our competitors on comparable projects.
In short, by choosing our ecommerce web design services, you can be sure that you will be getting great value for money and a cost effective website solution with all the benefits that come from our 17 years worth of experience in the industry.
