Unfortunately, this website is no longer one we manage or support, as a decision beyond our control was made to migrate the website to another provider. We have left this project here to show how the website we created was as a single, responsive platform, instead of moving to the unresponsive route of having a separate mobile and desktop site - as such, the mobile site itself is also non-responsive which is a shame.
System Hydraulics approached us to create an advanced e-commerce website solution, integrating a number of bespoke online contact forms and some complex e-commerce features.
The brief was to create a brand new e-commerce website, to incorporate information about the company and its services, as well as a number of online contact forms to cover enquires for servicing, sales and general enquiries. Where required, the forms allow website visitors to attach photographs and each form is setup to go to the appropriate e-mail contact within System Hydraulics.
The e-commerce platform has been setup to allow payment by invoice as well as creating a dedicated SSL certificate to allow for credit and debit card payments to be taken.
System Hydraulics are able to setup a range of discount structures that can be applied to individual categories within the store, and then assign these discounts to specific customer groups. The level of control over this feature is excellent, ensuring the company has complete control over the pricing shown to clients when they login to their account with the website.
The website solution allows for full order and account management for clients, and a range of comprehensive tools and reports for System Hydraulics to track orders and stock easily through the website directly.
The website went through a number of design ideas during the initial demo phase, before the current one was chosen. The initial website logo was worked in to the darker theme of the site, however in the end the company chose to stick with their long standing design which uses a white background.
Many areas of the website are able to be updated by the client, including all aspects of the e-commerce solution, service pages information and any image banners used on the site. A number of interactive features were create to keep the website interesting and bring some visual enhancements to the overall online shopping experience.
