Richie Thornton, director of The Consultancy said: “We’ve been working with Shepley for little over a year now, with the main objective to increase their digital stand and offer their customers an online alternative to showrooms and trade assistance.
“Shepley approached us with a very clear aim for their website and online ordering system and we have worked together with the company in order to reach this goal.”
The ‘sleek’ new website is now fully mobile responsive, meaning Shepley customers can view the website on any device, from computers to tablets and mobiles, at any time.
Built with its trade customer in mind, the website focuses on online ordering, marketing support and new trade area features such as a Visage photo library where customers can download high and low resolution product photography to use on their marketing campaigns and promotional material.
In addition to the new trade area features, the website also offers marketing support for all Shepley customers. Featured under the Customer Support section of the trade website, trade customers can now download brochures and receive showroom support as well as purchase a Visage homeowner website and composite door designer that can be branded as their own.
Ian Griffiths, sales director of Shepley, said: “We approached The Consultancy to help with the redevelopment of our websites and gave them clear aims and objectives for the project. They were able to meet our criterions and complete the work to a high standard in the time period we gave them.
“Both the Visage and Shepley websites offer great value for our customers. The Visage homeowner website makes it easy for homeowners to get information and find local installers quickly. The Shepley trade website keeps customers up to date with changing regulations, technical advice and new products, plus all of the Visage marketing support .”
The online ordering system now contains all the latest Shepley products including the new Inox range, new doors, glass and hardware suites. The composite door designer is available without any third party plugins and can be accessed by homeowners and trade customers on any device, at any time.
The Visage homeowner website will feature the full Shepley range of products and can be branded completely to the customer’s company, along with any additional information they want to add. For more information register your interest via the Shepley trade login.
