The Webtrade developed Advance Pitstop website has been nominated for Best eCommerce/Services website at the 2011 Irish Web Awards, see www.advancepitstop.com.
Advance Pitstop is Ireland’s number one independent car servicing and repair specialist, with over 40 branches nationwide specialising in car servicing and automotive repair, including tyres, brakes and exhausts.
The aim of the website was to effectively promote the Advance Pitstop brand, highlight their waide range of services to members of the public and fleet/commercial customers, grow car service bookings online, promote special offers & discounts and to grow their search engine reach.
The site includes an online 'Book a Service' facility which gives a quote based upon the type of car, engine size etc. It has an order system for new tyres, plus an interactive branch locator with Google maps integration. The site integrates with the Cartell system and retrieves live car data based upon a registration number input by the user. This reduces errors due to incorrect user data being input, ensures more accurate quotations, and helps the internal process in handling bookings.
The site is fully content managed using Webtrade's Siternity content management system
Advance Pitstop bookings have risen dramatically and the company has trebled turnover in a recession, which isn't bad!
