Cotoco continues to support CC Moore to grow their online business selling top quality fishing baits. As well as on-going growth in retail customers, 2014 also reaped the benefits of enabling trade customers to order online.

2014 has also seen time and cost savings made possible through CCMoore’s bespoke ERP system, further integration with couriers, and the introduction of barcoding in the fulfilment process.

Cotoco designs, updates and manages the e-commerce website, develops back office functionality and provides business intelligence to support strategy development. Over the last eight years Cotoco has enabled CC Moore to extend their online market, interact with customers, improve the efficiency of their fulfilment and increase their business twenty fold.

Imago logo

Imago ScanSource, Europe's largest video solutions company, have just launched a new portal to provide sales support to their channel partners in the field.

Produced by Cotoco, the portal helps resellers to increase their solution selling skills and adopt a systematic approach to identifying the key business challenges that customers face. It can then be used to establish customers' high level visual collaboration requirements and automatically recommend popular solution sets that meet those requirements.

Given the myriad of product combinations that are hard to put together initially, the portal not only ensures customers get what they need, but also provides a powerful learning tool. New sales people can quickly investigate how to put together product combinations to cater for specific needs.

This new solution selling portal will make a huge difference to our reseller community. It has captured our expertise and delivers it into the hands of sales people.

Psoriasis self-care logo

Capturing the expertise of a dermatology specialist, Cotoco design a journey to help improve the way users manage their condition and make it easy to put into practice.

Cotoco captures the expertise of dermatology specialist nursing consultant Julie Van Onselen and creates a website to help people with psoriasis, a long term condition.

Whilst there is a wealth of information out there, it's often difficult to know what's relevant and what isn't. It can also be hard to interpret the complex information presented. Usually this means that people are not dealing with their condition in an optimum way which can really affect their quality of life.

Cotoco designed a simple journey to help improve the treatment routine used to manage the condition. The site makes it easy to understand the issues and to follow what’s relevant. It doesn't use long medical words that people find off-putting. The journey culminates in creating a personalised action plan for individual users to make it easy to put into practice.

Psoriasis self-care journey

The impact of the site was measured by Professor Ersser and his team - they found that over 45% of users changed the way they managed their long term condition as a result of using the site. This demonstrated a statistically significant increase in the users’ ability to self-care.
