London quality at Devon rates
Have a look below to see the kind of work we have been producing with our London clients, we are currently based on the Quay in Exeter.
Due to Covid-19 like many organisations, our systems and processes have been structured around distant working, with comms now managed through video calls and recorded videos for support or training requests.
This has changed the expectations of many of our eCommerce web design London based clients, so if you are going to manage your web project via zoom, then why not benefit from national quality production at Devon studio rates?

WordPress / Woocommerce Experts
As WordPress specialists, we would recommend WooCommerce for eCommerce applications for the most part (however we have built a number of bespoke applications).
WordPress is well known for an almost infinite library of third party plugins that can change its function very quickly. Paired with a familiar dashboard that makes managing and updating the website easy for your team.
Getting payment gateways and shipping right
WooCommerce can also support a wide range of payment gateways which gives you the flexibility of choice. This choice could keep costs down based on expected sales quantities, or save time if you have a bricks and mortar store because it can be configured to integrate with your existing service provider and inventory.
We can also help you import your products and integrate with stock management where needed. All this automation is to help avoid having to manage stock levels and orders in multiple places causing an admin burden and frustrating customers.
With you for the journey
We don’t believe the launch should be the end of the journey, we know the importance of getting to the top of Google for key searches, SEO is not an off the shelf product, success lies in a cyclical process of ongoing research and optimisation.
We would like to embed ourselves into your marketing department, picking up technical tasks that would be expensive to resource like maintenance, ongoing advertising or marketing and hosting.
All of these services will keep your website secure, fast and findable on search engines.
Environmentally friendly boost
Of course, our hosting is optimised for quick WordPress applications, ready to meet the needs of organisations ready to hit high technical standards for SEO post-launch.
Our servers are also run on 100% green energy, meaning you get to support the green web foundations mission of hosting a green website and do your bit to help the environment.
Plus, for every new hosting client, we will donate £25 to our partner company Moor Trees.
“Vu Online brought creativity, clear thinking and a high level of technical skills to the launch of our new website.”
