HELIX LAUNCHES NEW RESPONSIVE WEBSITE

The brand new Helix website showcases responsive design technology
WEST MALLING, KENT, England, 6 August 2013

The range of web solutions offered by Helix Websites has expanded considerably in the last couple of years and their advanced new website provides a platform to showcase all the products and features they are able to offer including responsive design functionality. Their new mobile-ready site uses latest technologies, search engine optimisation techniques, and design elements that Helix customers can expect in their own websites, and provides a tangible example of what Helix can do for other businesses.

The most exciting aspect of the new Helix website is its responsive design functionality. This means that the layout of the webpages adjusts automatically to suit the size of the web browser it is being viewed on. People now browse the internet in a variety of ways and responsive design means that the website can be viewed just as easily on a smartphone or tablet as on a desktop or even a TV screen. Whichever type of device is used, the most appropriate web page layout is automatically displayed, maximising the customer experience.

The open design of the new website uses the latest thinking in web design, combining large fonts, simple images, and striking colours to relay short messages to visitors quickly and simply. In line with Helix’s standard content managed service offering the website includes a simple contact form, a Google map, and links to social media accounts including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. It also has a fully integrated blog which provides valuable content for website visitors and search engines alike. Helix are committed to creating the best possible web solution for their customers, and the portfolio page of the new site includes five recent success stories that showcase a selection of Helix products and services.

Helix is a leading Kent-based web design business that offers three distinct categories of web solution. Their flagship product is a fast-to-market online shop which can have retailers selling online within weeks. Their second product category is completely bespoke web solutions that combine new products with existing systems to create a single integrated hub. The third product range they offer is quick and simple sites, which would suit smaller businesses looking to create a web presence. Helix are committed to the open source philosophy and all their products are built on open source software to make them multifunctional and scalable as well as affordable. The new website acts as a valuable testimonial to what Helix has to offer their customers.

HELIX LAUNCH FAST TO MARKET ECOMMERCE SOLUTION

The new ecommerce solution from Helix can generate customer sales within weeks
WEST MALLING, KENT, England, 25 February 2013

Helix Websites have just launched their new state of the art ecommerce solution built on the Magento platform. It combines all the modern features you would expect from a tailor made online shop, including responsive design and mobile commerce capabilities, without the long build time and high price tag often associated with bespoke sites. The front end of the shop is customisable to make it unique to each retailer, but the system behind it is a tried and tested set-up that combines a decade of ecommerce experience with superior Magento functionality.

Kent based web design company Helix Websites have launched a core ecommerce package that includes the build and launch of a modern online shop built on the Magento platform. For an affordable fixed price Helix customers benefit from a huge range of built-in features such as responsive design, catalogue management, marketing tools, payment functionality, customer services, order management, and basic SEO. The Helix ecommerce solution provides everything retailers need to get their store up and running and to start making those all important online sales, which can be achieved within weeks of their initial consultation.

Helix chose the Magento ecommerce platform for their online shop package because it is a scalable platform that can expand as a business grows, and because it boasts thousands of customisable features. Magento runs on open source software so it benefits from a global community of talented developers yet remains affordable as it doesn’t require licensing fees. Magento is used by a quarter of the world’s top ecommerce sites including big names such as Harvey Nichols, The North Face, and Fred Perry and implementing Magento has been proven to increase volume and value of online sales.

Once a Helix online shop is up and running the retailer will be in the best position to decide if they require further services. These could be specialist extensions, bespoke design services, advanced SEO, multi-shop capabilities, or product creation. A Helix online shop will be profitable without these extras, but for certain businesses they may enhance performance and increase sales. Whether they choose additional services or stick with the core product, retailers can be sure that a Helix online shop has the capacity to evolve with the changing needs of their business and to embrace advances in ecommerce technology.

Book a consultation with Helix Websites to see how their core ecommerce solution could have your business making sales within weeks. Visit the Helix Website for more details or check out their Facebook page.
