WE'RE YOUR SECRET WEAPON TO BUILDING POWERFUL B2C COMMERCE SOLUTIONS.
Guidance designs, develops, and delivers growth oriented commerce solutions to retailers. After more than two decades of creating powerful solutions for our clients, we're extremely well-versed in the language of shopping.
Simply put, we know commerce — and some of the biggest names in retail would agree.
WHAT WE BRING TO THE TABLE
Let’s work together to innovate creative, content, and commerce solutions.
UX & UI Design
We believe that creative is both a science and an art. That's why our in-house creative team includes experts in UX and UI design, digital design, and content strategy. Our clients benefit greatly from their collective expertise as well as the meticulous research, data, and strategy that goes into creating each site. Through this holistic approach, we deliver custom digital experiences that seamlessly bring offline brand elements to life.
Guidance implements leading ecommerce platforms for medium and enterprise retailers worldwide.
MOBILE SITES & APPS
We had a mobile-centric approach long before it was standard. Since 2009, we've been behind the launches of many successful mobile and responsive websites and apps. As continuing mCommerce champions, we're always refining our approach and tapping into new innovations to keep mobile shopping fresh.
SEO AND OPTIMIZATION
Even the most stunning website can't do all the heavy lifting to capture traffic and conversions. That's why we incorporate SEO and digital experience optimization strategies into everything we do. With the right approach, your target customers not only find you easily online, but make purchases and become customers for life.
HOSTING & MANAGED SERVICES
85% of our ecommerce clients continue to work with us post-launch via Guidance's centralized hosting and maintenance services.
We're passionate about creating thriving revenue channels that are backed by custom-tailored strategies and solutions.
PLATFORM DEVELOPMENT AND SYSTEM INTEGRATION
Technology is at the core of everything we do. After all, we've been creating successful ecommerce experiences since the late 1990s. Our developers are top-notch, and our integration expertise includes order management systems, warehouse management systems, ERP/financial back-ends, customer service solutions and much more.
We've spent more than two decades managing complex system integrations for our B2C clients. As a result, we're fluent in all the associated nuances and requirements.
We understand the challenges that our B2C customers face on a daily basis. We also know that not all IT infrastructures are built equally or able to accommodate change. Guidance tackles these issues head-on, with strategic vision and results.
