We understand that your e-commerce infrastructure is a critical investment to your online venture. This investment is too important to gamble upon and rely on anyone else other than the experts.

Our forte is combining strategy with quality development to create the foundation of a successful and profitable online business. We’ll finely tune Magento to your business’ needs thinking about optimal functionality,

We integrate software so that all the pieces of your business fit and work together as one 'well-oiled' machine.

A successful start-up needs to think about many crucial elements – not just technology. There's also financing, online and offline marketing, design and branding, payment gateways, customer support to name a few.
We realise that startups are not just about building impressive websites, it’s about planning for a profitable start-up business.
Our strategic planning and consulting process makes sure we all agree on the big picture before we write a line of code.
Once the project is underway, we'll make sure everything is in place for launch. We'll engage third-party experts from our network of trusted partners when necessary and we'll make sure the project is kept on schedule and on budget.
Online access is increasingly via mobile devices so we build solutions for tablets and smartphones across operating systems and platforms. We are experienced at optimising websites for mobile and creating website that are fully scalable to smart phones and tablets. At Design Industries, our mobile versions function superbly and look like they should (brilliant) on whichever device your customers have in their hot little hands.
It doesn’t take much thought to realise that because of screen size and touch screens the user-experience via mobile is different than when surfing via desktop or laptop.
We know how to accommodate, and best capitalise on, these differences. In particular, at Design Industries we are experienced at building high-yielding e-commerce platforms so that you can sell to your customers – wherever they are.
We believe in a ‘platform agnostic’ approach that creates general mobile web-applications rather than creating a ‘native’ app. This means we avoid mobile apps that only function with a particular brand and end up alienating potential customers and is likely to be superseded quickly. We'll always ensure the end result is of the highest quality as we undertake rigorous user acceptance testing and quality assurance.
At Design Industries we build easy-to-use content management systems that put you back in control of your website.
