Human Element implemented a new responsive design for Andalou Naturals on the latest version of the Magento software. The new template scales elegantly for mobile and tablet devices, while keeping the company’s unique branding front and center. With an eye toward ecommerce conversion and the user interface, the new online store experience provides a more in-depth look at this innovative line of organic, non-GMO beauty products.
"When looking for the right web team, it was important for us to work with a company we could trust, a company who could give us a customized, scalable site that meets the demands of today’s mobile world while offering us the flexibility to create and recreate in numerous ways," said Andalou Naturals Brand & Communications Director Amy McKelvey.
Human Element implemented several custom ecommerce components to work within the Magento framework, including a one-page checkout, a store locator feature, and an attribute-driven product page designed to help users easily browse for beauty products that meet their needs. The new store achieves additional flexibility for users by allowing UPS SmartPost for shipping and Paypal Express payment options.
"Human Element has been wonderful to work with. Their communication is top notch, which really sets them apart from other web teams. They have delivered a unique site without compromise - one that will usher in tremendous ecommerce growth while supporting us on a global stage as we continue to expand. We couldn’t be more pleased," McKelvey said.
Human Element and Andalou Naturals plan to continue their partnership post-launch, working together to design and release new features to further improve the customer experience.
“The new Andalou.com delivers an exceptional combination of responsive design and streamlined ecommerce functionality,” said Human Element Managing Partner Ben Lorenz. “We are proud of this project release, and we look forward to a long-term relationship with the Andalou team."
