Zappies

Zappies is a fast-growing and innovative toy distributor and importer, based in West Sussex. They wanted a site that would make it easy for retailers to find products they are interested in from the thousands in stock. The site is automatically updated from stock data held in a Sage 50 database.

The site is built with Drupal 7. It uses Apache Solr Search for the facetted search facilities, and Drupal Commerce for the products and ordering. Custom permissions mean that the wholesale prices and other product details are only visible to trade customers who have logged in.

Healthy Back Bag

Healthy Back Bag Homepage

This site has some complex e-commerce features, including VAT handling, export order capability, various different product discount and combined purchase discounts, and more.

Custom content types were generated to make it easy to add and manage the many small "box adverts" that link from each page to other relevant pages on the site.

The Drupal theme was constructed to make a working version of a series of Photoshop designs. This was a long and complex job to achieve the page layouts, especially for products, required.

Skills Workshop

Skills Workshop: Home page

The long-standing Skills Workshop website was proving to be very time-consuming for the owner, Maggie Harnew, to keep updated. New contributors continued to send in new teaching resources, but the time taken to add resources to the site meant that a back-log was building up.
