Origin Architectural Listed in Kentico's Site of the Month

Did you know that in September 2016, our work for Origin Architectural made it into Kentico’s Top Ten Sites of the Month? The list which comes out once a month (as the name suggests), is a countdown of some of the most creative, innovative and skilfully developed websites and digital solutions, built using the Kentico Content Management System (CMS).
Origin Architectural are a new to marketing architectural hardware supplier based in Leeds, just down the road from Pixel Towers itself. Launching both a new brand and a new website posed an interesting challenge for our team and after some serious consideration, we decided the best solution was to design and develop an initial brochure site, to start gaining authority for the domain name and building brand awareness, while the full ecommerce solution was being built.

We were tasked with ensuring this full ecommerce solution was not only capable of allowing the Origin team to update and manage hundreds of products with numerous variations, but also capable of delivering a simple and secure checkout process for their customers.

We did this be leveraging some of Kentico’s key functionality including the “Install Payment Gateway” functionality to facilitate the Sage Pay integration Origin Architectural would be using to complete transactions. Sage Pay have long been one of our key industry partners and they were the ideal choice for delivering the secure payment solution Origin were looking for.

Kentico’s Register After Checkout Web Part was used to create guest checkout functionality to simplify the purchasing process and the content management functionality of Kentico also delivered the management tools needed to manage the product listings and supporting information.

In the end the result was a user friendly, secure and efficient ecommerce platform which delivered a 250% month on month increase in sessions and a 756% increase in page views after launch. As if this impressive performance wasn’t enough, to now have the website listed in Kentico’s Top Ten Sites of the Month is a real indication that this has been one of our most successful ecommerce websites to date. Keep your eyes peeled for many more in 2017.
