DS Laboratories

Laboratories in Thailand

DS Laboratories is an American brand manufacturing hair and skin care products with a scientific approach, they needed a new website including an online store to develop their presence in Thailand and sell their products in an effective ways to individuals and salon professionals, while showcasing their partnerships with celebrities and presence at showcases around the country.

An ideal online store solution : WooCommerce

At Outsourcify we think WooCommerce is one of the best e-commerce solutions for small to medium sized shops, which is why we offered to build DS Labs’s online store with it. It comes as a plugin for WordPress and thus with all the benefits of having a WordPress website, particularly its easy-to-master user interface and plugin environment.
WordPress is an open source software that can be installed on any server as the technologies it is based on are very common (PHP and MySQL). It is the most commonly found CMS on the internet, around 30% of all websites are actually running on WordPress today. The fact that Automattic, the company behind WordPress, bought WooCommerce 2 years ago means that both WordPress and WooCommerce are here to stay and will continue to be upgraded regularly.

A Fuly Responsive Website

Mobile users come first

We are no longer living in a world where smartphone users can be considered as exceptions, more than a billion people access the Web from mobile devices, be it smartphones or tablets, and it’s especially the case in Thailand. This known, a responsive website (which adapts its content to the screen size) is must have today, and efforts should especially be made to adapt the interface to a much smaller screen while keeping the user friendliness intact.

This is what we aimed to achieve on the DS Laboratories Thailand website, adapting the desktop design to a more condensed mobile version, moving the mega-menu into a hamburger menu sliding from the left on demand.

An online store needs the best hosting possible

An online store needs the best hosting possible

Hosting is invisible to your customers, but it’s really important for their experience. Bad hosting can affect your chances of securing the sale.

You can trust us at Outsourcify to host your website, we carefully select the most trustworthy, fast and efficient servers, with as much as a 99.9% availability. We also configure these servers especially for WordPress and WooCommerce and fully manage them, which means we will always make sure they run with the latest security and performance upgrades.

To have a SSL certificate on your website is recommended in all cases, but of course mandatory on an online store. Our hosting solutions always come with SSL, which results in the website being served in “https” instead of “http” and you should see this “secure” icon next to the url in the browser :
