This is a custom built WordPress Woocommerce website for Scottish Hampers, a leading player in the specialised food hamper market, part of the It’s All Food company based in Glasgow.
At the beginning of 2017, they had an out of date, custom built website that was not mobile friendly. And while it managed the complex stock demands that are placed upon a hampers business, extra functionality was needed. They approached us to see if we could recreate the site, with a fresh skin, in WordPress and Woocommerce.
There were several challenges here. The Scottish Hampers business offers a range of ‘prebuilt’ hampers. But its key offering is a ‘build your own’ service – that you do from the website. You can select a size of hamper, and individual products from a stock range of over 300 items.
Achieving this in Woocommerce demanded some clever re-working of existing plug ins. And the creation of various back end functions that allows the team to manage stock, deliveries and orders all from the one dashboard. The build proved to be quite complex, but we were ready for testing in late August, with the site finally going live in the first week of October.
