Once again we are very pleased to announce that another client website has won an award! Bombus have today been awarded the E-commerce in Kent Award 2012, judged by a panel of six e-commerce experts, the Bombus website fought off competition from 9 other finalists to claim the top spot.
Amelia Coward, Managing Director at Bombus was presented the “Best Online Shop” award by Alan Noake, Founder of the awards ceremony – now in it’s fifth year – at The White Cliffs Hotel, St Margaret’s Bay near Dover on Friday 2nd November 2012.
As well as the impressive cut glass award Amelia wins a luxury two night stay for two at the Wallet’s Court Country House Hotel & Spa.
Speaking to Paul Andrews on Kent Business Radio following the Bombus triumph, Amelia commented “Anyone can setup an e-commerce site but we feel ours is very smooth and ergonomic”, “We have a fantastic e-commerce company called Interactive Red – they’re completely supportive and helped us structure that really complex system of the back-end that users will never see”.
Bombus goes mobile for Christmas
Just days before the award ceremony, our team of developers had completed the conversion of the Bombus website into a “responsive” website – making it user friendly and compatible for visitors on mobile phones, tablets alongside the usual desktop computer browsers.
Bombus are hoping that the mobile friendly site will lead to a boost in online sales during the Christmas period – one of their busiest periods for online trading.
