Once a website is built it’s then user tested. Elastic use services including WhatUsersDo and UserTesting to fine tune sites and perfect the user experience based on the business sector and purpose.
Websites are also fully tested for technical, usability, accessibility and speed issues using tools including SortSite, BrowserStack and Google Webmasters Tools. Once a site is launched it’s continually monitored for performance. We recommend that clients set-up a maintenance plan which ensures their site continues to deliver perfectly.
Ecommerce and transactional
Elastic has strong experience in ecommerce and transactional web solutions including Shopify, WuCommerce (WordPress), Foxycart, Supercontrol, Eventbrite and Volusion. The online booking system Supercontrol was used for the property booking site Crabtree and Crabtree. This was integrated with the ModX CMS and has been very successful.
We have used Shopify a number of times to produce transactional sites, the last being to run ticketing for the Scottish Low Carbon Conference. Eventbrite was used to produce event based solutions for Resourcing Scotland’s Heritage.
More recently, Elastic produced the user experience for Edinburgh Business School’s economic simulator product. This is an educational tool, part of their MBA programme, which allows the students to control the UK economy and test out their economic knowledge. Allatus provide business management information and analysis for organisations through a product and digital user interface designed by Elastic.
