The team behind Scoot North Wales approached us to help design a brand new logo and accessible website to help their customers hire mobility scooters and disability aids easily. Designweb were a natural choice, because we have successfully worked with the team on a number of digital projects for their other North Wales based businesses.
The client wanted a strong brand that clearly reflected the nature of their business and as well as designing a clear, definitive logo, we helped guide them to a suitable domain name.
The accessible website was developed on the WordPress platform and uses WooCommerce. This enables visitors to pay for the hire of mobility scooters in advance of taking a holiday to North Wales.
While the finished project works beautifully, it was not without it’s challenges to make ordering as straightforward as possible, particularly considering customers who may have a disability.
Our biggest technical challenge was to incorporate day rates for each product, minimum hire durations and applying discounts for booking each product for 7 and 14 days. We also had to incorporate additional information for the delivery and return of scooters together with follow-up emails to the customer prior to their hire. We were able to meet these requirements successfully, and the end result is an accessible website that is easy for customers to use, handling complex calculations effortlessly behind the scenes.

The timescales for this project were exceptionally tight – but we were delighted to launch the site within 2 weeks of commencement, enabling the client to take advantage of bookings ahead of the 2020 holiday season. It was also refreshing to work on a site that challenged us to think about the logic required within the booking system and to think about information and functionality required throughout the customer journey. We were delighted with the end result.The Designweb Team
