Description

A beautiful designed website to display the delicious and visually stunning catering available.

Approach

Technically we used a combination of Flash for the visual experience and an AJAX and PHP powered content management system, Silverstripe. For the customer the Flash meant a highly visual website which had a classic style mixed with elegantly placed slideshows so they added to the experience without overwhelming the eye.

Also, to aid the customers and increase search engine optimization (SEO), Peake wanted to add a searchable directory of venues where catered events can be held. Developed database and forms in MySQL and PHP, with an admin back end to enable Peake's staff to easily add venues and photos. These are linked to the content management system to enable customers to search venues based on location, type of event, number of potential people, and amenities at each venue.

To increase sales and leads, incorporated a request for quote form. Customers can request a quote, by filling in a request for quote page, which enables them to identify the purchasing parameters that are important to them. Regularly receive inquiries from customers, which provide significant details as to what they require, to better be able to provide quotes.

Results

A tasteful modern website that fits with the style of Peake of Catering and gives them a top end web presence. Customers can view and search food venues, send a quote proposal, view food on the menu, find where Peake are based with a Google Map and generally have an enjoyable experience on the Peake of Catering website. It's amazing how many people say they leave the site hungry, which is one of the emotions Peake wants in order to increase sales!
