Project Octo is the brainchild of Ketan Mistry, owner of web development company Dubbed Creative, in collaboration with Adam Pritchard, Director of digital marketing agency, Future State of Digital.
The newly formed agency has secured a central Manchester office as its new eCommerce platform becomes available in a bid to position itself at the centre of Manchester’s thriving digital industry
As well as its specialist eCommerce solution, Project Octo will offer clients a full-service digital marketing package, combining strategic marketing and project management – Pritchard’s area of expertise – with design and online development by Mistry, whose work has been featured in the Web Design Index.
The Project Octo application has been created as an alternative to the traditionally clunky, off-the-shelf eCommerce solutions, with its creators promising fewer clicks, fewer time-intensive tasks, and more speed and flexibility in terms of market response.
The new eCommerce application has been developed over two years and been trialled by a number of the company’s clients. According to Mistry, the platform has been the foundation of these businesses’ online growth over the last two years, and the team are keen to build on this overwhelming success.
While many OTS eCommerce applications are low on initial expense but notoriously difficult to customise and scale, says Pritchard, Project Octo is designed to be implemented on a consultative basis, enabling it to be tailored to the needs of any client. Ongoing support is available to clients using the platform, helping to eradicate any issues that may crop up in future.
Project Octo is inviting online business owners who are finding their commercial growth hampered by limitations in their current eCommerce application to get in touch for a no-obligation discussion on how Project Octo could help them extend their reach
Pritchard commented: “It’s very easy for businesses to settle when it comes to their eCommerce application because they think a switch would be too complicated. But we’ve spent two years developing something really intuitive, rather than just launching another one-size-fits-
“What we hope is that companies that need some help with their eCommerce platforms, or who feel that their business is being limited by their current eCommerce solution, will see that Project Octo prioritises real eCommerce value and ongoing customer support.
Mistry added “Project Octo is just that – a project. We’re never going to say, ‘OK, that’s it, it’s finished’ – the idea is that it will always evolve and improve. But right now, we’ve designed an application that integrates with marketing, logistics and accounting systems, and it’s already making life quicker and easier for everyone involved.”
