Magento eCommerce website development

Advanced InCar Technologies, Bournemouth

Background

Our web design and developer services were recommended to successful family run business Advanced InCar Technology (AIT), who had gained a good market share locally and had greater ambition to deliver their products and services nationwide. They appointed us to develop a new eCommerce website to enable them to spread their reach and attract customers globally, whilst delivering their in-car installation service nationwide.

Platform feasibility study

Although we had developed many eCommerce solutions previously, one size doesn’t fit all, so to ensure that we provided the sophisticated website that our client demanded, we completed a thorough review of each of the leading eCommerce platforms, including Bigcommerce, EKM, Magento, osCommerce, Opencart, Shopify, Ubercart,  several WordPress-based systems and Zencart. Magento was chosen for its advanced account and order processing functionality, its rich features, vast scalability and its growing reputation as the leading eCommerce platform.

Website design brief

The brief was simple, to develop a stand-out website with knobs on! We took their instructions literally and produced a unique, sleek and sophisticated design where every element including the information architecture was carefully considered, to ensure that the interface was engaging but more importantly really simple and easy-to-use. Special attention was given to the display of product lists and individual product items and to the search and filter functions, ensuring that the presentation of this information is spot on.

Magento is, we think the leading open source eCommerce web platform. Launched in March 2008, Magento was used by over 3 million websites by April 2010 and has since been acquired by Ebay Inc. (June 2011).

Magento has achieved 10% share of the eCommerce market, and has been adopted globally by developers and agencies who have contributed to extend the capability of the application by generating over 5,000 extensions and plugins.

We love Magento because of its advanced functionality, mammoth feature list, its stability and scalability and the community and resources available to help developers. The main benefits of Magento over other eCommerce platforms are that it can be used to completely run your online business, offering a single platform for managing customers, stock control, orders, invoicing, deliveries, returns and even provides an integrated email marketing solution.

Magento solutions partner

Having worked on numerous Magento projects as developer, designer, planner and hosting provider, we’re now looking to join the Magento Partner Program and benefit from being part of their global eco-system, helping to further strengthen its capability and reputation.
