ecommerce Development

It’s undeniable that in the 21st century, ecommerce is king as it continues to wrestle spend from traditional bricks and mortar stores.
Having an ecommerce capable website is critical for modern day retailers.

Why should you embrace ecommerce?

In 2016, online sales exceeded £130 billion in the UK alone, £18 billion more than what was spent in 2015. The statistics are more than compelling, they’re ironclad, ecommerce spending is on the up and that rise can only be described as meteoric.

Every business has a different ecommerce requirement and our development, digital and strategy teams can help you to take advantage of the online market and the many opportunities it presents.

Research & Planning

The first step of any e-commerce project is to carry out thorough research into your business and the market it’s in and plan accordingly.

Design & User Experience (UX)

Eye-catching design that wows your audience is one thing, but our UX designers also ensure that visitors to your website have the best journey and experience.


Only once we’re 100% happy with the previous two stages will we begin to build; our back-end, front-end and UI developers use the latest tools and practices to ensure the best possible website.

The BIGGER Picture

All websites require ongoing maintenance, hosting and optimisation to ensure they’re fully effective, and this is especially true with ecommerce. We can help to ensure that your new ecommerce website is working at maximum capacity using techniques such as search engine optimisation (SEO), conversion rate optimisation (CRO), A/B testing, content marketing and planning.
