Project Overview

Say and Play Music Co. have been running for almost 15 years in the traditional professional music industry. Joan from Say and Play decided it was time to venture into the online environment. Looking for an effective way to transition across to create an e-commerce solution to sell their professional music programme.

The Process

There were three main challenges with this website:
1. Navigation / Content Structure
2. Easily updateable website
3. Visually appealing
4. Interconnectivity

The navigation of the site was primarily driven by the products available from Say and Play music programme, we looked at the existing product line and adapted a simple one level navigation structure that didn't require large menu systems or multiple levels of navigation. Each stage is offered as a complete set, so the details pages needed to take into account multiple books on one page. We achieved this using a simple but smart custom administration solution that allowed for a parent-child relationship in regards to each stage.

The administration section is easy to use and allows each user to add / edit products in simple step. Image uploads are very simple and make multiple copies / versions that can be used at various points throughout the site to keep data delivery to an efficient minimum. As products appear in multiple places either individually or in stages, updating of stock levels can be updated from multiple points and flow through any products keeping levels consistent throughout the site.

Specific photo shoots are taken as each new stage is developed Orange Tree Design Studio provides strategic direction to gain maximum effect from each photo shoot in regards to the website layout and product delivery.

We also integrated a Suncorp payment gateway to allow instant processing of payments as well as all the features that come with the payment gateway allowing refunds, multiple orders, batch processing etc.

The Result

Say and Play launched their new website and are successfully selling their music programme online to both the general public and professional industry. Products are updated fast and effectively with a minimum of stress involved.
