After many requests we have now completed setup of our demo site. This site has been loaded with 20k users, 10k quotes and 10k orders. All have dummy credit cards on file and order progress is setup with orders at various stages. The site is set to reset every 2 hours at half past the hour. There is a timer at the bottom of the site to relay this information.
Feel free to send quotes and play with any parts of the system you wish. To request login details please enter your name and email below...
In 2009 it became clear that the software package that the company I was working at was using, was not an ideal solution to their business needs. It was this fact and the fact nothing else was available that was suitable or efficient enough that ProMart was conceived.
The name comes from the original component that was used for the front end shop system "VirtueMart". "Virtue" was replaced with "Pro" as this was a Promotional or even a Professional version of the system.
In 2014 it was decided to rebuild the order system we had created to make it more streamlined and add in a lot of features we had been missing in the initial ProMart development. In February 2015 www.merchandise.co.uk was finally launched showcasing the new software system to the industry.
I've spent my whole life telling people that I'm not a sales person. I've had some pretty interesting responses to that in the past. Most tell me I'm a great sales man and "why am I spending all my time designing websites and developing interfaces". The simple answer is I love it, if you can find something you really truly enjoy in life you will never work another day in your life!
Who we are and what we do:
Over the last 6 years we have been developing ProMart a cloud based e-commerce system that offers unparalleled speed, but more importantly ease of use. Our system is used by forward thinking companies that want to succeed in the online marketplace. As well as our software offering we provide web based support services to various other entities within the promotional merchandise industry in the UK.
I design all User interface and functionality I like making things pretty and I like things to just work. Life is so much easier when things just work.
Alex has worked at PromoNet since just after it's inception. Alex deals with major contract work such as website maintenance, artwork and data management.
How We Like To Work:
If you pick up the phone and call us now I will answer or Alex will. I designed ProMart's UI and have been for the last 5 years, I will solve your problems or develop a better solution for your business. Our software has a framework but it's not off the shelf. We are flexible and will listen to your needs. This is the way we work. This is the way we like to work. If you would like to work with us then please contact us.
All of the screenshots and demo views on this site are from the pilot ProMart 2.0 website www.merchandise.co.uk.
The entire dashboard category is a case study of www.merchandise.co.uk
This website is owned by Merchandise Ltd - formerly Promo-Gifts (UK) Ltd. The total rebuild has taken over a year and is an ongoing project as we add more and more features to the site as they are requested by the Merchandise Ltd team.
ProMart 1.0 originated from David Dawson's work on www.promotional-products.org and has been a long project spanning 5 years to 2015. The database and software of ProMart 1.0 had grown beyond it's capabilities. In 2014 it was decided to rebuild the system from scratch to take advantage of an updated Joomla Framework and responsive design elements as well as being able to design the entire structure of the software from an educated and more experienced standpoint.
