Digital Republic built and manage the Autumn Publishing eCommerce platform
The market leader in the field of children’s activity and learning books
Autumn Publishing was formed in the late 1970’s and was acquired by the Bonnier Publishing Group in 1999. Based in West Sussex, the publishers aim to help develop children’s skills and abilities as part of the exciting process of growing up.
Autumn Publishing required a sophisticated eCommerce solution that could cope with their entire catalogue of books, allowing them to target consumers directly rather than their traditional business model of selling to publishers, distributors and retailers. Digital Republic built a bespoke solution which allows complete flexibility and maintainability. Being actively developed allows us to incorporate digital downloads and other features as they became available.
The site has been a great success, although it now needs a responsive upgrade. It has allowed them direct access to customers, providing valuable knowledge of this new market as well as increased sales.
