UK Mountain Sports required an e-commerce website where they could list climbing related products and have a blog to post the latest climbing news. They also required several people to be able to access and add content to the site. Helios Web Design built them the e-commerce site based on the wordpress platform. Through the woocommerce plugin they can monitor stock levels, sales and other metrics to help them refine the products and services they offer. The client also required a social media presence. Helios Web Design set up a twitter profile and facebook page for the business and automated posting from the website to social media.
