Homebase runs Britain’s worst online shop, according to a survey by consumer group Which?
The DIY chain’s website was hard to navigate, offered poor value for money and was often not up to date on stock details, the survey found.
The most highly-rated shops were specialist retailers, led by LizEarle.com and RicherSounds.com.
Which? said the popularity of smaller retailers’ sites underlined the importance of offering a personal, convenient service that gave “shoppers exactly what they want”.
“Where the big players are lacking, either with poor service or confusing websites, smaller more specialised online retailers have seized the opportunity to make their mark and give shoppers exactly what they want.”
We at mOrsoft offer a personal and bespoke website design service for smaller retailers, giving shoppers the experience they want.

We have recently completed a training programme for one of our customers who has a website that uses a CMS system.
This training was carried out on site which helped reduce costs and enabled their staff to carry out training on computers that were familiar to them.
Contact us today to see how we can offer a complete solution to your online marketing.
We have had a number of website requests which seem like a good idea at the time.
However, although these requests are a good idea, further marketing is required.
Some of the websites we have been asked to create are listed below.
- Dating site
- Auction site
- Drop shipping
All these websites have been created before and are established by main companies ie. Tinder, Ebay, Yell etc.
For your site to succeed, you will have to choose a website idea that has not been done before and has a unique selling point. Such a site might be a dating site for engineers only, or an auction site which specialises in one particular product ie. bicycles.
To see if we can help with your new website today contact us or give us a call on 01702 .
This May will see a change in the rules governing management the personal data of EU citizens. Is your business ready for the changes to the way personal data is handled?
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU regulation that will come into force on 25 May 2018. It centres around personal data protection for EU citizens, and aims to unify data privacy laws across Europe.
Many businesses and organisations that hold data will be affected. Non-compliance with GDPR can mean significant fines for those in breach, so for those that have not already done so, it is time to start preparing.
How do I know if I’m affected?
According to EUGDPR.org, the new regulation “applies to organisations located within the EU but it will also apply to organisations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behaviour of, EU data subjects”.
Any companies which process and hold personal data of EU subjects, no matter where the business is based, fall under the remit of GDPR. So yes, you are most likely affected.
What measures must you take to comply?
The main points of GDPR for businesses to comply with include:
- Request for consent and purpose of data collected must be intelligible – for sensitive personal data, users will have to “opt in” rather than “opt out”
- Individuals must have the right to access their data
- Individuals must have the right to withdraw consent and prevent further dissemination of data
- Those concerned must be notified if there is a security breach
What measures are we taking to comply with GDPR?
We are currently updating all our customer websites to be GDPR compliant.
