The Safari Store





The Safari Store London required a cutting edge design full ecommerce and online accounts package to replace their existing website.


W3C valid XHTML & CSS, Javascript (jQuery), CMS built with PHP & MySQL, CakePHP MVC framework & Google Analytics Integration


In order to grow our business, and run it more efficiently, we realized that investing in a comprehensive system to manage our online store, products, stock, website content, as well back-end procedures, including company accounts was key. We tested many other off the shelf systems which promised to allow us to fulfill all our CMS and back-end requirements, but we always found one or two niggling shortfalls that did not allow us to do exactly what was needed. And the costs when all the extra were added into the equation where prohibitive and meant that we would not be able to implement the type of system we required.

Thankfully we were referred to Steve Thompson from Fantasmagorical. Steve has worked tirelessly to create a bespoke system unique to our business requirements. In a world where IT costs have sky rocketed, Steve has always worked to the agreed budget, and his open and honest approach is greatly appreciated! Changes when required are made quickly, and he has always answered questions sent on e-mail within the hour, if not within minutes! The impact of the system on the running of the business and most importantly on sales and customer service has been truly remarkable. If you are serious about growing your business, and realize the true value of a bespoke system, then look no further than Steve and Fantasmagorical. Please do not hesitate to contact me personally on steve@thesafaristore.co.uk should you have any questions.
