Nationwide Dealership Solution
Our Solution & Results
We have worked with Peter Vardy since 2014, initially delivering a "digital forecourt" described as "setting the standard" in the sector by Autotrader UK. Working closely with the team at Peter Vardy, we have sculpted their website to deliver an engaging purchasing journey that empowers the car buyer. The site is one of the fastest and most user-friendly in the industry.
Our partnership with Peter Vardy has extended to joint ventures designed to reshape automotive ecommerce. With COVID-19 throwing the importance of convenience and customer empowerment even more sharply into relief for automotive retailers, we continue to push the envelope with our Digital Partners at Peter Vardy.

We carried out extensive user testing over two main phases. The first was used to identify major blockers in the user experience and the second was to probe users further on expectations to then adjust the requirements specification.
The design and front end team worked closely to deploy a robust, responsive, front end for the website. This was written in HTML5 and CSS using the LESS preprocessor and our own bespoke CSS framework.
We assessed the usability of each user journey closely through further user testing and our QA procedures, testing on major platforms and browsers through a mix of virtualisation and testing on physical devices.
