Golden Environmental Services Ltd T/A  Golden Hygiene is a family owed business providing washroom services and janitorial supplies to companies across the north west since 2009.

We offer a personal service providing washroom/waste disposal solutions at a very competitive price without compromise on service – something the national companies strive to achieve.

Sales have grown organically since 2009 in our locality (North West) but now needs expertise to develop its online presence to compete in a very competitive environment.


Structural update or rebuild to our existing website, to include an ecommerce platform with customer ordering portal, we are open to input regarding established ecommerce sites such as shopify.

Incorporate all the services offered on the facility services side of the business.

Easily updated without expert input.

Existing Website

The current website was built in 2009. We are aware that there are some issues with the website from a functional / online perspective which we will need to be accounted for during this project.

The company would like to achieve:

  1. a) Restructuring of existing website menu
  2. b) Restructuring of home page to maximise engagement and conversion
  3. c) Option to include Videos and News for new products etc
  4. d) Restructuring of Categories and Product pages.
  5. e) Database management advice – the company would like to build the website to include its products we currently sell 600 lines of product however we expect this to expand over time, therefore the procedure to add and change product must be manageable – the current website only has a small selection online. We have several suppliers we have approached to provide Bulk Data Uploads that we will require advice on to convert successfully to bulk uploading. The expectation is not on the successful applicant to upload products rather for the company to advise / educate or create a solution for us to be able to execute this task internally as an when products need updating.
  6. f) Further suggestions for improvement welcome
