Nautical Living

"Web Foundry has given me confidence in helping me build my perfect website. They are always there at the end of the telephone and through email, no more waiting for days to receive help. I have had numerous web developers before and have only found Web Foundry to be behind me 100% of the way to give me and my business the key features it needs to have a great website!"

Shelley Hatter

Nautical Living provides beautiful nautical accessories for the home and was started by a 35-year-old mum with a fantastic eye for great design.

The Objectives

The main purpose of the Nautical Living website was to provide the company with a low budget, e-commerce solution allowing the owner to sell her products online and manage her online presence in-house.

The Technical Part

We created a site that was able to feature an unlimited array of products. We designed a custom template and built it in Joomla version 1.5. The Virtuemart e-commerce extension was installed for linking to a PayPal processing system, enabling users to purchase products from the site quickly and easily. The site included a slideshow gallery to showcase the products and a media area for PR executives to download images of the products for print.

Our client was able to update all of the product descriptions, images, prices, categories and shipping rules easily from the CMS admin area, without prior technical or coding knowledge.

The Process

Nautical Living was one of Web Foundry's first clients and got in touch with us to discuss the requirements of the website. We managed the project to suit the client's budget and provided consultancy on maximising their business revenue with a system that could gradually evolve over the long term. Once the proposal was accepted, we developed the site and set up the e-commerce system. 

The Results

Nautical Living remained a client for several years. They were delighted with the smooth running of her website, which from day one addressed their primary requirement to showcase and sell the beautiful products on offer.
