Brierley Hill, West Midlands
CLIENT: EK Automation Systems

EK Automation Systems are a privately-owned company with years of first-hand experience in designing, developing and integrating bespoke automation solutions. Their installed systems currently cover a multitude of industries from Aerospace and Formula 1 to machine OEMs and commercial heat treatment.

The Brief

The team at EK Automation Systems approached us with a view to working with them to create an eCommerce platform that they could use to allow their customers to configure and purchase from the range of automation appliances they offer. Their existing website had been designed in-house using their hosting provider’s DIY website builder but they were looking to move forwards to offer a much more interactive experience for their clientbase.

Requirements
  • Create a new eCommerce platform
  • Integrate with Global Payment gateway for Customer payment
  • Manage multiple product brands
  • Handle very complex product configuration options

The Solution

We developed a new eCommerce platform using WordPress and WooCommerce to meet the basic project requirements.

Specific plugins were used to deal with the complex variable product options and our solution offers custom fields and downloadable product datasheets (PDF).
