The Client

Sailors’ Society is a charity based in Southampton, which supports the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual needs of seafarers all around the world.

Last year the charity commemorated its 200th anniversary, by releasing a beautiful book called ‘200 stories from the sea’. Sailors’ Society decided to offer the book for sale online to supporters, but had only a limited budget and timeframe to invest in getting an e-commerce store ready in time for its anniversary event.

What we achieved

We sat down with Sailors’ Society to discuss their immediate and ongoing needs for an e-commerce store as making the wrong web platform choice early on can become an onerous and expensive mistake. We also discussed the available time and budget to implement a solution.

As a result, we opted to build a microsite using the Shopify e-commerce platform, which enabled us to develop a cost-effective e-commerce solution in a matter of days and not weeks.

To date the store has been very successful and exceeded Sailors’ Society’s revenue predictions, providing a fantastic return on investment in both time and money.

“Arkhiteks came up with a cost-effective, practical solution to meet our commercial needs and turned it around in a matter of days. They were very helpful, knowledgeable and efficient - just what we needed.”
