Having worked with some of the UK's largest retailers, including Ann Summers and Joules Clothing, we fully understand the retail sector. We developed our own proprietary click & collect system that allows retailers to offer a customer-friendly and efficient way of selling their produce and managing the logistics between distribution warehouses, bricks and mortar stores and online stores.

We also have extensive experience of eCommerce projects across a range of different industries, including agriculture, holiday rentals and more. Most of our retail clients have one thing in common: they have struggled to work with an ‘out-of-the-box’ solution as their requirements are unique to their business. This is Ansta’s area of expertise, we can implement different systems including Point Of Sale (POS) with a website, with stock control software, accounting software and more. 

Where your retail requirements are specialised and require a bespoke solution, Ansta are perfectly placed to assist.

Examples of bespoke developments include;

Ann Summers - Click & Collect System

Ann Summers SS

Working with Ann Summers required us to develop a bespoke middleware solution to sit between the existing eCommerce store and their own internal systems to provide a platform for click and collect orders.

The system was developed for use on their in-store till systems and was designed with this in mind. It is primarily used by retail assistants to update the status of click & collect orders, marking them as booked in, collected and no-shows.

Joules - Trade Ordering System

Joules SS Updated

Joules needed a custom made solution utilising data from their internal databases, enabling external representatives to place trade purchase orders that integrate back with their ordering systems. Alongside the trade ordering system, Ansta also developed a click & collect system for Jules which is used by retail staff to monitor and fulfill click & collect orders made through the Joules website.

Grove Cottages required a bespoke calendar and booking system created exactly as the client required in order to allow them to manage the availability and booking of a range of holiday cottages they manage across Suffolk and beyond.

Movac/Wood Finish

Movac are one of the largest independent UK based coatings suppliers with 3 divisions serving the Automotive, Wood and Industrial markets. They approached Ansta to develop an eCommerce platform to allow them to sell their products directly to their customers online.

Initially, the focus was on the automative side of their business, before a copy and reskin of the website was requested for Wood Finish Coatings.
