This site was created in 2010 using WordPress for content management and the Shopp ecommerce plugin. The client requested that the site be designed to match the Brigham and Women’s Hospital site while incorporating the gift shops own brand.
“When The Shop on the Pike decided to pursue a live e-commerce site for the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Gift Shop there were many challenges and obstacles to climb. Our site needed to reflect the proper image for our institution, one of Boston’s finest hospitals. We needed to comply with many guidelines set by Partners Health Care, our parent corporation. But most importantly we wanted a site that was attractive and easy to navigate both for the customer and our staff. Blue Iris Web Design managed to achieve all of these goals and beyond.
Not only do we have an attractive web site, but it is one that is fully integrated with the “look and feel” of the other sites associated with the hospital. It is superbly easy to navigate from the front end to the back.
Deciding to build a web site for any retailer is an intimidating decision and is complicated by the multitude of choices out there, be it hosting or credit card processing. Nina at Blue Iris knew all of the options available and managed the behind the scenes technical details perfectly. Our staff is trained on how to receive orders, and process them, we can update the site when needed, and we are confident that if a problem arises Blue Iris is just a phone call away.
I am happy to say that we made the right decision when we hired Nina Johannessen and Blue Iris!”
