Design, front-end build and content management integration support for a large eCommerce website selling thousands of products.
Lockhart Catering Equipment are the country’s leading distributor of catering equipment, supplying the largest range of light and heavy equipment available to the UK caterer.
When they came to us, nearly all their sales were through traditional channels – printed catalogues and direct mail leaflets. Their competition was beginning to make serious in-roads through digital channels, and this had to be stopped. A new, enterprise-level eCommerce website was the answer.
Lockhart assembled a team of developers and chose Hybris as the core technology and content management platform. What they didn’t have was a web design team capable of delivering the user interface and user experience design for such a large and mission-critical website.
Working closely with the Lockhart marketing and development teams, Rouge created sitemaps, wireframes and front-end code for over 50 unique templates, for both mobile and desktop.
The collaboration continued as the front-end HTML, CSS and images were stitched into Hybris. Rouge became an extension of the Lockhart development team, helped with the extensive testing and provided post-launch support until the site was fully live.
