eCommerce Agency Chameleon Digital Media Announce Development of their New Voracio Responsive eCommerce Platform, a “One Platform for All Devices” Approach to Online Retail


Huddersfield, West Yorkshire (PRWEB UK) 9 October 2013

In the summer of 2013, the Huddersfield based agency made the decision to re-develop their enterprise eCommerce platform from the ground up, taking a mobile first approach. When complete in winter 2013, the new responsive eCommerce platform will be ready to roll out to their existing and prospective clients. All features of their legacy platform will be maintained, plus many new features will be available. The Voracio ePOS integration for true multi channel retailing is a further advance in their field of expertise. Codenamed ‘Voracio,’ Chameleon see this as future proofing project which will result in “one platform for all devices” and represent a major advance in their stature with the professional and enterprise eCommerce arena.

Company owner and eCommerce entrepreneur James Noon quoted:

“There’s plenty of content online discussing the debate of mCommerce vs Responsive eCommerce. In a nutshell, using a mobile commerce platform entails having a standalone website that is developed specifically for use on mobile devices. A responsive eCommerce platform is where one website will cater for all devices, mobile, tablet, desktop, covering all viewports.”

“In the past, there were two types of websites a business could choose to have developed to cater for the mobile audience. One was to ask their web developer to build a stripped down mobile version of the desktop site, using redirects for mobile traffic, the other being to commission a mobile specialist firm to develop a separate mobile site. These approaches served well in the past, however are becoming outdated, both having considerable and increasing drawbacks in regard to costs and user experience. Here are just a few of the major issues,” added James.

On discussing the negatives of traditional mobile development, James noted the following:

“Both of the above are often only optimized for a limited number of devices. Such is the diversity of mobile devices these days, this means that the users browser experience is compromised. Mobile sites require redirects, having different URLs to the desktop site which makes SEO efforts much more difficult.”

“Having separately hosted sites often causes issues with content synchronization, including expensive integration development costs. This is because the mobile and desktop site usually pull content from two separate data sources,” James continued.

“Often the user experience from mobile to desktop is inconsistent, your most loyal customers may struggle to perform tasks they are familiar with on your desktop site when browsing your mobile site. Features may differ too; for exampl, your loyalty points scheme may not be available to mobile users, again compromising user experience and conversions. Managing content for two separate sites makes difficult and more time consuming work for marketing departments.”

James then continued to discuss the advantages of a responsive website:

“Content maintenance is easier, changes to your site are made through a single CMS; this is better for accuracy and productivity. Responsive sites use one set of URLs, whatever the device the URL for any page will be the same. This is better for SEO efforts and conversion page optimization. Another fact is that Google themselves recommend responsive web design, as seen in their guidelines for mobile development.”

“Marketing campaigns are easier to manage, more cost effective and provide a higher return on investment as the users landing page is automatically optimized for their viewport. Responsive sites can be shared more easily and importantly the user experience is consistent across multiple devices. All things considered, responsive sites are more cost effective.”

But what of the performance and technical implications for a responsive site?

“We’ve studied the technical implications of responsive sites in great detail,” said James who heads up the eCommerce platform. “There is some opinion that responsive sites can be heavy on load times, however many articles we’ve studied mentioning such issues are outdated and solutions have already been developed. We have always taken website performance into consideration, for this RWD project we are implementing a number of techniques to ensure optimum performance for all devices, for example we use RESS (Responsive with Server Side coding) and device detection alongside media queries to determine what content to feed to the user.”

The company concluded several months back that responsive eCommerce is without doubt the way to go, they believe it is the future of online retail and as such have invested much time and focus on the development of their new responsive ecommerce platform, codenamed ‘Voracio.’ They are looking forward to rolling out our first sites later this year.

Company Information:

Chameleon Digital Media are a growing force in the eCommerce platform arena. Established in 1998 as a graphic and web design agency, over the past several years Chameleon have invested heavily in the development of their own eCommerce platform. This platform is used by scores of online retailers throughout the UK.

eWebSchedule Announces New Feature for Its Online Employee Scheduling Software


Westerville, Ohio (PRWEB) September 17, 2013

eWebSchedule, an industry leader in online employee scheduling, announced today it has added a new Drag and Drop Schedule editor as an alternative to schedule entry. eWebSchedule was founded with the goal of assisting employers with their staff scheduling. The frustration that engulfs many employers surrounding this task fueled the need for a better solution. Faster, easier, simplified staff scheduling was -- and remains -- the company mission. The most recent proof of this commitment is the Drag and Drop Schedule editor.

eWebSchedule’s services are delivered through a cloud solution that makes deployment easy and affordable. It also resides in an environment that instantly communicates with your staff. Staff immediately receives their schedule, changes to their schedule and notices of open shifts through the website, text and email messages.

Engineers at eWebSchedule recognized that it’s not just about the schedule. They created an integrated system that delivers all things related to the schedule under one umbrella. The service also manages employee availability, requests for time-off and shift trades. It is also customizable to reflect your organization and policy. eWebSchedule’s employee scheduling service accomplishes universal employer goals.


    Quick and accurate schedule compilation
    Preventing unexpected gaps in shift coverage
    Eliminating over/under staffing
    Reducing, if not eliminating costly overtime
    Managing requests for time off
    Instantly keeping staff informed of their schedules and new business needs

eWebSchedule’s latest breakthrough development is its Drag and Drop Schedule editor. This new feature significantly improves on an already user-friendly system. Here are a few examples:

Save even more time scheduling employees. This online, employee scheduling software can already save up to 25 percent of the time formerly spent on assembling the shift coverage puzzle. Drag and Drop schedule compilation further speeds the process and most likely will improve on the 25% benchmark.

Further improves schedule accuracy. Enhanced graphics of the Drag and Drop editor help HR and schedulers become even more accurate. Through color coding of the employee tiles, the scheduler can instantly see who is available and simply drag the employee tile to the schedule timeline. As the shifts are added to the timeline, the scheduler can quickly identify any shift gaps or over-scheduling issues, and fix these potential errors.

Frees up staff to concentrate on other issues. eWebSchedule’s Drag and Drop schedule editor gives staff more time to focus on core business needs.

Make changes fast when needed. Employees who call off from work can create potentially dangerous shift coverage gaps. Its new Drag and Drop editor allows the scheduler to instantly identify available staff to cover a call off.

Cloud friendly. eWebSchedule is a cloud-based solution to employee scheduling, or some prefer the term Software as a Service (SaaS). The significance of the cloud solution is that it is easy to deploy, easy to implement and provides instant access to everyone in the organization; all with little or no investment in hardware. Any current device with internet access has access to the schedule.

Importance of Cloud Technology

The affordability of cloud service delivers to every organization what was once only available to organizations with large IT budgets and endless IT resources. Cloud solutions are highly cost-effective. A cloud solution eliminates the requirement for sophisticated servers and expensive staff to manage the hardware, database and software. As a subscriber to a cloud service, the investment is a low monthly cost that is based on what your organization utilizes. The cost for the expensive hardware and IT guru’s is distributed and shared by the cloud subscribers. The result of a cloud service implementation is access to systems that were once considered unaffordable as well as time and money saved.

To learn more about eWebSchedule’s cloud service visit its website at http://www.eWebSchedule.com. A trial period can be started by simply clicking the blue ‘Get Started Now’ button. If you prefer an online demo, contact eWebSchedule’s staff by clicking the ‘Contact Us’ menu item and submit your request.
