New eCommerce booking website for London's premier student storage company.

The company

Spaceways offers affordable, by-the-box storage for students and homeowners alike.

They provide hassle-free storage solutions saving their customers space without having to take their gear to a self-storage warehouse.

Customers simply book a time to receive their free, high-quality boxes to pack, then Spaceways collect and store them in their secure warehouse, ready for re-delivery when requested.

Spaceways is part of the Kellys group who dpc have been working with for a number of years.

The brief

Design and build a new Spaceways website and online store where customers can quickly and easily book to have storage boxes dropped off or items that are in store returned.

The requirements

  • Simple and intuitive user experience.
  • Integration with Adyen payment gateway.
  • Integration with existing internal warehouse systems.
  • Bespoke back end business management interface.

The solution

This project required a carefully considered enterprise-level solution, we finally decided on building the website on the Umbraco CMS, with Ucommerce as the booking engine, with a bespoke back end sales and customer interface.

Umbraco means all pages can be built with nested widgets for complete flexibility, all elements of on-site SEO can be managed through the CMS, and the ease of learning the CMS means that Kellys were up and running in minutes.

Ucommerce is a completely customisable eCommerce engine which we adapted for the self-storage process flow.

The back end interface needed to be completely bespoke as the business required a number of very specific and unique features to be included in the management back-end.

The results

After following the dpc project lifecycle with some very detailed wireframes and prototypes, the functionality for the front end and back end was quickly and easily agreed, and our new designs rolled out onto all the fresh new pages.

The site has just launched in beta-mode as we test all the features.
