This was my first ever website I designed! French Holiday Let rents a stone built farmhouse and French gite to clients in the Vendee region of western France.

The website was designed and created in a simple, clear and user-friendly way, making it easy to navigate with good images of the farmhouse and gite.

The site has been optimised for search engines and at the time of the work first place was achieved in Google for search terms such as "rent a farmhouse in vendee" and fifth place for "rent a gite in vendee". Please note this website was created a few years ago and sadly the website no longer operates.

I was fortunate enough to work with Cotton Bottoms, which was the UK's foremost eco-friendly cotton nappy company, which traded through major high street retailers such as Boots, John Lewis, Woolworths, and The COOP as well as offering online sales through its own website. It achieved the prestigious Mother and Baby award as well as many top baby awards every year.

The Cotton Bottoms website was totally redesigned and incorporated a bespoke e-commerce shopping cart dramatically increasing sales. At the time of the work 1st place position was achieved in Google on page 1 for many popular and competitive search terms such as "cotton nappies" and "eco-friendly nappies".

Due to its success Cotton Bottoms later merged with the famous Tommee Tippee brand and Jackel International (view news article - please scroll down two thirds of page). Sadly the Cotton Bottoms website no longer exists. I was also responsible for designing and developing the backend CRM database application for holding customer and contact data.

West Pier Telecom

Please click to view larger image. Image will open in a new tab/window.

One of the highlights of my careers is that I have been fortunate enough to work with a prestigious company called West Pier Telecom and still do. West Pier Telecom is one of the top UK resellers of the award-winning Avaya communication solutions and works with the Ministry Of Defence and many others. Avaya is the largest telecoms giant in the world, formerly AT&T. West Pier Telecom is the only reseller to hold the rare and prestigious Customer Service Excellence award. My role as lead Software Architect at West Pier Telecom has been to create and design their website. The website now regularly hits number one position on the first page on Google for major search phrases. I have also created a backend database and admin area to allow the marketing department to upload news articles to a "latest news" section.

I have also created a fully bespoke support desk ticketing portal allowing customers and engineers to raise support tickets when they need to, allowing customers to see their ticket history including all previous tickets, and a real-time wallboard report showing their statistics - including average response time to tickets, number of SLA breaches, average time to resolve problems and number of tickets raised and closed in a date period. I created full-screen wallboard reports for internal staff to monitor customers and see real-time statistics with integrated thresh-hold breach voice alerting.

I have also designed and developed a fully bespoke ERP, CRM and order processing solution which integrates with the bespoke support desk ticketing portal and public website. The bespoke order processing solution also allows invoices to be created and imported in bulk into a separate Sage Line 50 accounting system by touching a button. www.westpiertele.com



Used Telecoms Ltd

Please click to view larger image. Image will open in a new tab/window.

Usedtelecoms was the largest retailer of used and refurbished telecommunication equipment in the UK and had customers worldwide including Siemens, Nokia, Ericsson and Avaya.

The Usedtelecoms website and database was totally redeveloped incorporating a client login and bespoke quote basket system. A content management system was also developed for staff to manage stock. The Usedtelecoms site and SQL Server database is designed to link in directly with the company's own internal bespoke stock order processing and CRM system which I also developed.

Another prime focus was improving the search engine ranking in Google. At the time of the work first place was achieved for many search terms such as "used telecoms" and "used telecoms equipment" plus many more search terms, all increasing the number of visitors to the site. Sadly the company is no longer operating.
