Curry's Website Analysis

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Curry's Website Analysis Layout The website uses a standard layout with links on the left in a table and main headings along the top. The rest of the information and links are spread across the rest of the page but everything is set out in as table to keep things even and neat. The main logo is situated in the top left corner with a link to the homepage as nearly all websites do. A search box is also present which gives you more freedom in your searches and / or if you don't know where to look for the item you are after. Any awards that they have received are positioned out of the way at the bottom of the page along with official company owner and also cards for payment accepted by the company. Colour Curry's have a specific colour theme in which contains red and white. ...read more.

Also available is FAQ's which can solve people's queries almost straight away if they are a commonly asked question. This saves customers time because they won't have to ring up the call centre for information which is a useful feature. Buying/Ordering Online You can buy online with the 'add to basket' feature situated on all items. But you can only purchase online if you are to get all of the items delivered otherwise you have to reserve them, then pay and collect in store. This print screen shows what the basket looks like. It shows how much your basket is worth and gives you the option to keep shopping or to go to the checkout and finish your buying. It also shows you whether you can reserve and collect the item rather than paying for it over the internet, which some people prefer because they may want to pay in cash, or just may not like purchasing things over the internet. ...read more.

Conclusion

Good points about the website are; * Categories * Large choice of products * Good legible font and colours * Lots of images and not just text * Animations to attract the viewer and to get them to look more at the website * Link to sign up to an email service in which you receive emails about the latest offers in store. Overall The site is there to promote sales in the electricity product industry, and it does that as prices are listed reasonably and with a website and around 530 stores that is how they are succeeding as a company. All of the items on the website have a full specification so all information is provided that you will need to know about the product(s). Curry's also has links to other websites involved within the DSGi Retail Corporation. ?? ?? ?? ?? Adam Crossling Curry's Website Analysis Mr Dolan Unit 2 - Transactional Website ...read more.

Response to the question

The report is quite basic, which describes how the Curry's website is targeted towards their core consumer base. However the website doesn't entail detailed analysis, which is needed for high marks. The student acknowledges key areas of the website, such as the layout, colour scheme and the ordering process and describes a little about each one. For higher marks it would be necessary to write a more in-depth view.

Level of analysis

Generally the report is lacking high levels of analysis, as the answer is quite basic. However on the plus side, the section 'Information Capture' is in-depth and does provide the analysis required. The issue is, is that the report isn't consistent, as some areas are high analysis and other area's aren't. If all areas were of the same quality as the section mentioned above the report would acquire high marks.

Quality of writing

The structure is very clear, as the report is divided upon different sub-headings which make it very clear what the student is referencing to. The writing is quite random, as some of the writing doesn't make sense. It's quite difficult to read and make sense of all of the work. As a reader, I have to assume a number of words as there are words missing in some places.
