Background

Cairngorm Leaf & Bean's Andy and Sharon followed their love of the outdoor life and passion for Scotland by moving from the Midlands, to the beautiful Dava Moor in December 2013. Andy and Sharon “We are delighted to be part of the unique and special community at Logie Steading and have been on an interesting journey to establish and build relationships with Scottish suppliers.

Challenges

Cairngorm Leaf & Bean had a requirement for a new e-commerce solution for their start-up business.  We were approached by our digital partner, Two Fentons, who were performing Business Consultancy for the client, to supply a cost effective, simple to manage e-commerce solution.

As the Cairngorm Leaf & Bean business was a start-up, budget was an important factor and costs had to be kept low.

Solution

Following a review of the client requirements, Shopify was chosen as the platform of choice for the e-commerce solution.

To maintain a low development cost, an 'off the shelf' theme was selected by the client; the Siruss Shopify developers simply modified the theme to work with the client's brand, colours and specifications on design.

The Siruss Shopify developers also added a MailChimp integration, product reviews, related products and a gift wrap option in the basket using custom liquid theme templates and custom programming.

Training and advice in product management was provided to the client and from that point on, they have been able to successfully manage all the products themselves.

Results & Success

Both the client and our digital partner, Two Fentons, are extremely happy with the design and development process and are now confirmed Shopify converts.  Cairngorm Leaf & Bean are also having a new section programmed into the website specifically for their trade clients.

What The Client Says: 
My partner and I run a coffee roasting business and shop in the Highlands of Scotland. We recognised the need to get 'on-line' as soon as we could and after securing funding for a website, we looked around for a suitable option. Taking the advice of a locally based Business Solutions company we opted for Shopify. Shopify offered flexibility in terms of a template, we had very fixed ideas on how we wanted our website to look. Once the template was chosen Siruss built the site to suit our specific requirements based on how we wanted to offer our products via e-commerce. Shopify offers a secure environment for our customers to shop, and for a complete 'IT stupid' the 'back end' of the site is very easy to manage with the guidance instructions offered by Shopify being clear and concise. Managing orders is made simple through a very logical process and communication to customers is automatically set-up. Our business and website are both at a 'baby stage' but I am very confident that as we grow and develop our Shopify site will keep pace with us. Working with Siruss is enjoyable, their staff are always very helpful, friendly and answer all my questions.
