Explanation of Website Services and Improvements
When Whirlygig hired our team to re-design a website, we not only re-designed a better-looking site, but we also made a ton of advancements to the ordering process. For Whirlygig, because their products are so large in size, they require their orders to be shipped on a semi-truck, which means each order needs to be calculated for the customer.
Per the client’s requests, we built their website so that the ordering process was like a normal e-commerce site, but would submit an order inquiry to the client as a “non-paid” order. At that point, Whirlygig would process payment manually once shipping cost has been calculated.
Their online store acts more as an interactive ordering catalogue, and if they ever decide to take online payments, we’ll easily be able to accommodate that option as well.
