Ecommerce Website

In the UK, over 32 million people buy online and it accounts for £1 of every £10 that is spent. This is set to rise to £1 of every £7 that’s spent or £221 billion by 2016. So whilst the high street may be suffering the online world is on the up which means that if you’re considering building or updating your ecommerce site, you couldn’t be doing it at a better time.

Designworks has created various ecommerce sites that sell art furniture, screed products, mountain expeditions, soft furnishing and predator experiences.

Site requirements vary and there is often a need for unique web functionality. Adding functionality, can be labour saving and make a website more streamline. Examples of improved functionality, include:

  • A customised filter for the ABCC’s (Association of British Cycling Coaches) membership database. The filter gives the Association much more control over their database for sending mass emails and providing member access to files or pages. Members’ subscriptions have been automated and members’ cards are created through a press and print PDF. Relevant information is taken from the members’ data and is positioned within a PDF template this is then printed and posted, along with a plastic sleeve, to members.
  • An ecommerce system for Screed Giant that links with the company’s accounting software, QuickBooks. This integration saves the client time and provides a seamless link between online store and their financial accounts. Items are added to a QuickBooks’ hub and then automatically synched to the web store. When orders are created on the website they are synched back to QuickBooks. The system creates an invoice from the auto generated sales orders and print packing slips.

If you’d like to discuss your e-commerce requirements then we’d love to hear from you.

What our clients say

It is always a pleasure to deal with the Designworks team…We have always found them to exceed expectations without exceeding our limited budget for branding. Many have commented on their design work!

Iain Scott Bainbridge, Scott Bainbridge Property Sales and Lettings

We were really impressed by the clean professional brochures that Designworks produced. The fresh look has opened up new market places and generated new business.

John Eatough, Stand & Deliver

Designworks were fast, supremely professional and the end results are just great. I’d always go to them first now, and would recommend them to anyone looking for quality, affordable, effective design. THANK YOU!!

Kate Rawles, Outdoor Philosophy

I have found Designworks a pleasure to work with – patient, creative and dependable. They have overhauled our website – we were really impressed with the effort and skill they put in to devising solutions to some really demanding functionality.

Isobel Stoddart, Electric Bicycle Network

I have used Designworks to design and print a leaflet as well as design a company logo for us and I can honestly say their ideas, attention to detail and end product were first class.

Robert Crawford, Different Strokes

Designworks were the third company we’d used over the years for our web site design. We found them fantastically easy to deal with from start to finish and the whole process of building a complete new web site worked seamlessly from start to finish.

Simon Cleasby, Holiday Cottages Cumbria

The quick, efficient service, quality creative input and attention to detail make Designworks a pleasure to work with.

Gemma Procter, Cumbria Tourism

We needed a new look for our brochure so we asked Designworks to assist us in producing it. We are very happy with the end result and consider it an essential part of the hotel’s developing marketing strategy. Thanks for a great working partnership.

Stephen Broughton, Lindeth Howe

I have worked with Designworks for many years and have no hesitation in recommending them. Designworks have never let me down – and I actually enjoy the process of working with them.

Jennifer Collard, Monkhouse Hill Holidays

We were very happy with our newly designed annual report which had been given a makeover with a fresh and vibrant feel and has received a lot of positive feedback.

Julie Beaman, Lancaster City Council

Designworks are always our first choice when it comes to designing and printing new publicity materials. They are always very welcoming, creative and efficient, even if we go to them with a last-minute request!

Sarah Rose, Cumbria Woodlands

We had a fantastic response to the newsletter that Designworks created. The brief was to produce something a little different from the norm. The finished design increased sales significantly over the same time the previous year.

Jeremy Hall, Peter Hall & Son

Designworks have been helpful, quick and efficient from the first day we started using their services. Regardless of the demands we have made of them at times, they have always been professional, extremely creative and all with smiles on their faces.

Eamonn Hennessy, Macbeth Scott

I have really enjoyed working with Designworks to come up with a new concept and a new approach for my website which had become outdated. They are a very patient as well as extremely creative team!

Laura Rosenzweig, Laura’s Loom

Designworks provide me with affordable, great looking websites and, more importantly, they use a user-friendly Content Management System. I have worked with websites for 13 years and have used a number of CMSs. I find WordPress the simplest and most intuitive to use by far.

Justin Grammer, PS Business Matters

Designworks made me a beautiful, simple website. Most importantly for me, it is very simple to update, as the WordPress system is easy to use for a non-techy like me. Great team, great product.

Rebecca Willis, Independent Researcher on Environment and Sustainability
