We’ve been working closely with BathCo, one of Norfolk’s leading suppliers of fitted bathrooms and parts, for a few years now and it’s been a pleasure to see the website grow from the beginning.
In 2016 we launched BathCo’s latest website, a complete fresh and clean overhaul of their previous online shop. The trickiest aspect of this particular website is that it comes in two parts; retail and traders/supply.
When we were approached by BathCo we discussed many different design and function mechanics based on what they required;
- User friendly experience
- Dual shop layout – One for retail and one for traders and suppliers
- Full ordering and payment system
- Modern and fresh
- To combine the online shop and fully fitted bathroom website into one
- Optimisation for mobile and tablet devices
Optimisation for tablet and mobile devices is an extremely good point to make. This year (2016) Google made a huge change to how your website is ranked based on how well your website performs on mobile and tablet devices. If your website runs poorly on handheld devices, Google knows. Based on this factor alone Google will start pushing your website down the search results and prioritise websites that do work well on handheld devices.
BathCo already had two existing websites, their online shop and another for their fully fitted bathroom service. It only made sense that both these websites were to be merged into one. We built the new website whilst keeping the existing websites live without disruption. The task at hand was to recreate their entire catalogue of products online and merge the fully fitted bathroom website, with it’s own section on the website, into one.
And that’s exactly what we did! BathCo’s website has a complete member system for both retail and trade customers along side their fully fitted section. Products can be bought and delivered to both retail customers and trade suppliers. Customers who wish to have their bathroom fully fitted by BathCo have accessible resources about the process and easy access to contacting BathCo to enquire. Their website boasts the complete range of bathroom products along with quarterly offers, contact information and showroom displays.
We wish the continued success of BathCo and their new website, it was fantastic to build from start to finish.
