As a global manufacturer of horse and dog clothing for over 35 years, WeatherBeeta certainly brings a diverse and exciting client to the OWB and Develo portfolio.

OWB and Develo were delighted to be appointed for this fantastic opportunity to design and develop a brand new, fully responsive Magento e-commerce website design to help drive sales.

Although WeatherBeeta has an established brand and an established website, they wanted more. Customers could visit the website and browse their range of products, but WeatherBeeta was missing the e-commerce functionality. This is where OWB and Develo could help.

Important elements that had to be included in the design and development were:

  • Find a stockist functionality – to allow users to view the nearest stockist, should they want to purchase offline
  • Reviews – it was important to WeatherBeeta for customers to be able to review products and share their experiences. We integrated a review system that allows customers to upload pictures of the products.
  • Multi-language e-commerce site on Magento 2 platform
  • Warranty registration – WeatherBeeta wanted the ability for users to register their products for warranty
  • Size guide – WeatherBeeta also wanted the functionality to help size their dog correctly.
  • Returns Management System (RMA) – We integrated a returns management system to streamline the returns process, resulting in reducing admin staff workload and improved customer satisfaction.
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV (Navision) Integration – Full Two way integration with Navisionto facilitate the full order management process between the two systems.

Doug Walker – General Manager Europe and North America of WeatherBeeta, commented “It’s always great to work with agencies who ‘get’ you as a client. From our very first meeting, it was obvious to us that OWB had really understood our business and our brands and made light work of responding to the brief. We were impressed and have remained very happy with the work throughout the process. We are now delighted to have joined the world of e-commerce with our brands; this is a capability that will enable us to deliver the best online brand experience in our category”
