Choosing your design
It’s vital for your website to function properly – but in this highly visually-orientated day and age the way it looks is just as important. Come across a clunky website, and you’re more likely to click off rather than click through to make a purchase.
Helen Reynolds, co-owner of fabric bag company Greenleaf Bag, recently launched the company’s eCommerce store using a Neto pre-designed design template.
“Designing, I don’t find easy,” says Helen. “But the Neto frameworks are all done for you, and if you do want small design changes to their templates they’re happy to do it.”
Neto’s responsive design approach means that any template chosen has the ability to automatically adapt to desktop, mobile and tablet screens. Neto also allows more extensive customisation (by an in-house designer or a designer of your choice).
“I think they’ve got great templates, great clean lines” says Francesca.
“I can’t see why anything couldn’t be integrated – and you could always put a custom front end on it if you don’t like any of those templates.”
Filling the space
With experience of using several different kinds of Content Management Systems to populate a site with information, Francesca explains that her experience of the Neto system is a positive one.
“It’s very, very easy to use,” she says.
“And is just easy to get up and running quickly. If I was to sit down now with a web developer and say, ‘This is what I want, and this is the kind of functionality I want’, we’d probably spend the next three to six months tweaking and playing around getting everything right.”
Pulling together the pieces
Integration is key to the way Neto operates – and what differentiates it to past approaches.
“I mentioned Unleashed and Xero earlier,” says Francesca, “But the fact that we can integrate our freight company in there as well – it really provides us with that whole system, seamlessly and very quickly.”
Training is key to making the most of the integrations and Neto’s extensive partnership network. Neto’s documentation website contains over 750 support articles and training guides, and over 50 how-to training videos. Each Neto licence also includes a free 30-minute personal training session for up to 20 colleagues.
“I was familiar with other similar products to Neto on the market,” says Francesca, “But I like Neto because it’s an Australian-based company – the support is based here and the configuration is set up for Australia as well.”
And the final verdict on the set up process?
“I think that Neto will be able to grow with the brand, the functionality and the integration is all there,” says Francesca.
“It’s all really simple and straightforward, and that is what I like about it – it’s not complicated”
“If you need a shopping cart on a website,” she says, “Neto is a no brainer. And it’s totally scalable. It’s capable of more than even most people will use, and they’ve got a really brilliant help desk so you’re never alone.”
