About the Client
Our client is one of the Retail Management Hero (RMH) certified team of highly qualified specialists in EPOS software. Being great enthusiasts in this area, they founded Emporio UK Ltd in 2006 to assist others in various EPOS software issues, including installation, maintenance, partnership and further support, since the EPOS system is constantly updated to offer the most relevant and reliable solutions for small and medium-sized retailers.
Since Emporio UK Ltd is concerned about providing premium class services to integrate and adapt to individual retailer’s needs and sharing the important information on the EPOS system UK, they contacted us to redesign their website to enhance its branding and visual identity and offer unique UI/UX design to attract more clients with affordable, flexible and clear-cut solutions and boost their online brand awareness. Our cooperation resulted in the eye-striking Emporioepos project here.
About the Project
Emporioepos is the project where our specialists were tasked to redesign the existing website for the provider of the EPOS software providers for the UK retail market. The essential requirement for this redesign was a complete rethinking of the concept to offer users a UI/UX design product with improved user experience for intuitive navigation and search for necessary information.
While redesigning the Emporioepos project, our specialists used Worksection, a powerful cloud-based platform for task management, time tracking and team cooperation. You can read more about this project management solution here.
And, of course, our designers can only do with Figma, which offers almost limitless opportunities to design, align, and build matters. This platform is used by all pros, including Webcapitan’s web designers, who set themselves the task of developing high-quality and unique design projects that meet the most refined requirements of customers and appeal to the target audience to enhance branding and visual identity.

Here, everything is well-thought-out: improved functionality, increased interactivity and flawless responsiveness. All this and much more makes this project as much adapted to user experience as possible to provide a high-quality, client-centred product.

THE PROJECT LIFE CYCLE
Requirement AnalysisIt’s a starting point of the project development process involving close communication with the client to define essential needs, objectives, and website functions. The level of knowledge of the client’s expectations allows for meeting the most sophisticated requirements.
PlanningThis stage of the project development deals with forming a clear vision of the project realisation and the website construction, including structure, pages, and technology stack that will ensure high performance and adaptability.
DesignThis stage involves all the creativity and craftsmanship of the web development team to conceptualise and realise the client’s ideas and requirements, introducing exceptional visualisation for enhanced user interface and experience.
DevelopmentThis stage marks the transition from conceptualisation to code realisation of the website functionality to ensure its smooth operation and flawless user interface and experience for further testing.
TestingAt this stage, the web developers thoroughly test the website to define whether its realisation corresponds to the client’s initial requirements to ensure sure-fire performance and reliability before introducing it to the users.
DeploymentNow, it’s time for the developers to introduce the website to the users, which requires transitioning to a live server. At this stage, the developers have to select hosting, set up domains and finalise configurations to ensure the successful public launch of the project.
Maintenance & UpdatesThere is no final stage of web development; once the project is realised, it requires persistent maintenance and updates to be innovative and modern. Not only its content can be updated, but also the latest technologies used to meet present-day goals and requirements such as security and adaptability issues.
Having initially undertaken our website in-house, we chose to work with Webcapitan’s web development company to produce a more visually appealing and modern look of the website. In addition, we became the exclusive distributor for RMH in the UK and needed to rebrand our website to promote this new existing chapter in our business. Webcapitan were the perfect partner in designing and proving ideas to produce our new website with unique UI/UX design and also offered assistance with hosting and SEO. Based on our successful collaboration, we will surely continue working further on the website’s updates in order to adhere to the latest innovations in the UK retail market.
