Gourmet Pantry is a popular artisan deli located in the heart of Kinsale, Co. Cork. The business was expanded to include a dedicated kitchen facility 10km north in the town of Riverstick.
They were using an external Click & Collect system which was not very effective so AOS Web Services were asked to create a custom e-commerce website that could facility four separate ecommerce functions and three different order fullfilment mechanisms.
Setting up custom e-commerce websites is an everyday task at AOS. Having the website support two different e-commerce functions in the same site makes the job a bit trickier. This website required four different functions, as depicted by the four tiles on the homepage. Three of those are e-commerce systems, those being Click & Collect, Local Delivery Catering and finally a regular Online Shop. The business model subsequently changed so Catering orders were also made available via Collection. The fourth tile represents a general informational service about Gourmet Pantry’s Deli, Menus etc.
This required a lot of custom coding and reworking of the standard functions within the Shopify e-commerce platform. In addition, the client wanted all of the pages from their old HTML website recreated so we set up several custom templates to facilitate that.
As our businesses grew in popularity, we needed a modern ecommerce platform to help automate parts of our process and efficiently manage our online trade. No off-the-shelf system was available to do exactly what we needed so we commissioned AOS Web Services to design and deliver a custom ecommerce solution.
Annette and everyone at AOS were highly professional and responsive throughout the entire process. They have software engineers on their team who wrote custom code to meet our requirements. With their guidance a complex problem was made simple and they delivered a beautifully designed website that addresses our needs within Gourmet Pantry. I look forward to many years of working with Annette and co and would not hesitate in recommending their services.
