Healthy Venture

Healthy Venture

Healthy Venture supplies nutritional products to wholesale customers and health practitioners.

The requirements for this website were quite complex as it needed to be a members-only site with different product ranges available dependent upon the type of customer (since some products are only made available to qualified practitioners for supply to their clients).  The site features forced login (customer must be logged in to view prices and add items to basket),  catalog restriction by customer type, full EU VAT number validation on-site, the ability to apply a flat percentage discount on a customer’s account across all products, flexible coupons and discounts at both product and order level, social media integration, blog and much more.  The website also fully integrates with Sage Accounts to save many hours a week of administration and accounting work – orders automatically download to the accounts software several times per day.

Eclipse Kickboxing & GJJ

Eclipse Kickboxing & GJJ

Eclipse Kickboxing and Gracie Jiu Jitsu is a martial arts gym in the centre of Wolverhampton offering adults and childrens classes. Founded in 1989 the club can boast two world champion kickboxing instructors in owner Fran Zuccala and Kyle Williams. In 2012 Eclipse became an official Gracie Jiu Jitsu Academy, one of the first in the UK.

In redesigning the Eclipse website, we wanted to provide a site that was consistent with their existing branding and also very visually appealing. We found this balance by using predominantly their existing orange, black and white colour scheme whilst introducing a variety of other colours throughout the site. We also made heavy use of video footage of the gyms classes to help give the browser a sense of the club’s environment and to make them feel familiar with the club before they ever even step through the front door. For many martial arts gyms, a big barrier to getting new members can be that initial fear of the unknown but now browsers on the Eclipse site can see exactly what to expect from the classes provided.

Other prominent features of this site are complex timetables which are filterable by class type, dedicated pages for each coach/instructor, an upcoming events module, image and video galleries, social media integration, a blog, a web store, full integration of existing booking and student education systems and a testimonials facility. The site is also fully responsive and mobile friendly and optimised for SEO purposes.

MegaSporeBiotic UK

MegaSporeBiotic UK

MegaSporeBiotic is one of a new breed of probiotics that are far more effective, easily absorbed and bioactive. MegaSporeBiotic uses spores, which survive passage through the gastric system and colonize effectively to provide the health benefits that most probiotics claim but few deliver.

For this project we were tasked with building the UK distributor of MegaSporeBiotic a Shopify website with an eye catching colour scheme, easy navigation and an optimal shopping experience for customers.

This product is only available to health care professionals for onward sale to their clients, so another requirement was to create a system whereby only registered customers can view pricing and make purchases. We edited the existing Shopify source code to facilitate this and to direct new customers to a form where they could register themselves, subject to approval, for a practitioner account.

As well as maintaining this site, we also provide ongoing business consultancy to this client and have aided them with streamlining their order processing procedures.

Enzyme Science

Enzyme Science

Enzyme Science are an exclusive line of supplements designed for people with health issues such as digestive disorders, food intolerances (e.g. gluten or lactose), candidiasis, and muscle inflammation.

For this project we were given a duplicate of the existing US store, which we then had to re-tool to suit the UK importer’s requirements. This included some modification to admin processes to make order processing more efficient for their warehouse team.

As well as maintaining their website, we also provide ongoing business consultancy to this client.

Enzymedica UK

Enzymedica UK

Enzymedica are America’s number 1 selling brand of digestive enzyme supplements and Enzymedica is the website of their UK importer/distributor.

For this job, we were tasked with taking a duplication of Enzymedica’s new main US site and re-tooling it for the UK market. This involved a fair amount of data re-entry, re-coding of elements of the site and also some bespoke modifications to the admin processes to suit the UK distributors requirements. For instance we installed one click capability for batch printing of orders and shipping labels and we integrated the site with the clients’ Mail Chimp account.

As well as maintaining their website, we also provide ongoing business consultancy to this client in a variety of areas, including streamlining their order processing practices and helping them with some of the issues that can arise in rapid growing mail order and distribution companies.
