When EHIRE approached Cape Town-based development agency, WOWWW, to create a robust event hiring marketplace, It was vital that the site’s look and feel remained clean and intuitive.
“[EHIRE] needed a strong online platform that could support easy navigation of their wide product range, as well as seamless online ordering, payment, and delivery.”
“They needed a strong online platform to support easy navigation of their wide product range, as well as seamless online ordering, payment, and delivery,” says WOWW’s Felix Norton. This presented his team with the opportunity to develop intuitive navigation and a sleek look and feel, alongside smaller custom features tailored towards the equipment/item rental space.
One such feature “creates a line on the ordering invoice in reference to a refundable deposit. This is paid back to the customer when the equipment they’ve hired is returned in good condition.” An additional feature determines the proximity of the delivery address in kilometers in order to develop an accurate delivery fee estimate for customers.
