DCUK are an online retailer of unique wooden gifts lovingly crafted into ducks, penguins, owls, chickens and other birds. Each product is carved by hand in Indonesia using bamboo roots that would normally be wasted. The crafters turn each root into one of the DCUK bird characters, before embarking on a journey across the world to a temporary home in Devon before they find their final homes.
Having worked with DCUK for a number of years, initially with building and improving their main retail website we were then tasked with developing and building a brand new website dedicated to the clients trade customer base.
We set about developing a password protected web presence behind our own custom built single sign on solution, logging into this gives trade customers access to order products, download lifestyle and product images, view brochures and pre-order upcoming new products.
The websites are built on the familiar platforms of OpenCart and WordPress and integrated with some bespoke software written by eckhoMedia to implement a single sign on solution to both websites and a system to distribute login details to trade customers securely and effectively.
