Breast Cancer Care -ecommerce online shopOnline store for leading charity

Having successfully completed projects for Breast Cancer Care both for online support (based around a custom-built private webmail system), then going on to re-build and re-launch their online forums, we were next approached to re-design and re-build their online store.

Cost-effective development based on open-source software

Though the majority of our web projects involve custom development, some jobs can be more than adequately satisfied using existing software. This e-commerce site was a perfect case in point which we developed using ZenCart for underlying functionality, with substantial re-branding and custom enhancements to meet the client's exact requirement. This allowed us to design, develop and deliver the finished website with limited budget and to a tight timescale, without having to compromise on functionality: ZenCart's out-of-the box best-sellers, reviews, recommend-to-friend, e-newsletters, discounts and the like providing more than sufficient tools.

Integration and stock control

One of the most important things we needed to do was to ensure that SKU information was properly passed by the site so that it would integrate with Breast Cancer Care's existing stock control and fulfillment. To this end we undertook bespoke enhancements to ZenCart's ordering functionality, in close liaison with Breast Cancer Care's in-house web team.
