School Days Direct
In order to constantly meet the changing demands of the schoolwear industry and to continue building their business alongside the retail store in Taplow, School Days Direct asked Kehorne to help.
Having initially created their website and first online shop in 2015, Kehorne were tasked with developing their “direct-to-school” offering – creating a new website and secure shopping platform that would enable them to grow their current online shop from 8 to 42 schools in phase one. The new site also needed to be a showcase for their workwear and corporate products, embroidery service, club and association uniform and personalised gifts.
With a new company logo and refreshed branding, the new School Days Direct website was launched in October 2019 and now offers an easy online ordering portal for parents and showcases their extensive product range. Kehorne were responsible for scoping and developing all technical aspects of the site together with project managing a complex number of bespoke elements that were necessary for order processing – as well as providing training support and resources for the retail team responsible for maintaining the site.
The site is built on WordPress with WooCommerce to handle the ecommerce aspect of the site. The site uses a bespoke heavily customised theme and is fully responsive for mobile, tablet and desktop. The site is hosted on our own server and is maintained and updated on an ongoing basis by our Support team.
