Second website success with RS Building

RS Building came to Source in 2011 to produce a brand, catalogue and website for their company The Washroom Accessory Co.

They were so pleased with the results they came back for their latest online venture for sister site The Sanitaryware Company.

As with the Washroom Accessory site, the Source bespoke ‘product management system‘ has been used, with an additional e-commerce capability to allow the client full control over their extensive product range and their array of features and specifications.

The site has been developed to sit alongside the Washroom Accessory website, but carries it’s own unique branding, style and professional feel (you can see a shot of the old design on the right under the new).

Using ‘My Projects’ users can ‘create’ and ‘add’ products to a project lightbox that they can revisit at a later date. The site has also been built with the client’s future needs in mind, as the e-commerce system is able to handle online transactions – this can be added at a later date with ease and minimal cost.

Source guided the client through every step of production and they were delighted with the speed and process at which the project was completed. If you are looking for guidance on how to make a website, or information on how e-commerce can work for you, give Source a call.

Saddle Up and Enjoy the Ride!

In The Saddle is the UK’s largest tour operator specialising in the delivery of horse riding holidays all over the world. From ranches in the Rocky Mountain states of Montana and Wyoming, beach and mountain rides in Europe, horseback safaris in Africa and riding expeditions to remote and unexplored parts of the world.

Based in South Shropshire, In The Saddle, approached Source Design to upgrade their website with a fresh and modern design as well as a whole host of new functionality. The new website incorporates e-Commerce features including payments in multiple currencies, bespoke software integration with their in-house ‘ride information’ database, IP tracking and translations and customer accounts.

The website is built on the Source Content Management System which allows the team at In The Saddle to maintain and keep their site up-to-date.

“The development of In The Saddle’s website involved some fairly complex programming and integration work but the resulting website is a modern, intuitive and hardworking website that positions In The Saddle head and shoulders above their competition,” says Gareth Griffiths, Technical Director at Source Design.

By using the latest development techniques available, such as JQuery, to create movement, the new website will work equally well across mobile platforms such as iPads and iPhones.

James Sales at In The Saddle explains, “the development of our new website was always going to be a huge undertaking but Source were always on hand to help us through the process. From a technical perspective their expertise and professionalism were second to none and we are looking forward to seeing the results”.
