The Five Mile Press


Custom Umbraco Ecommerce solution

The Five Mile Press is an Australian publisher and distributor specialising in children’s books, adult non-fiction and Australiana. Founded in 1991, the company quickly became known for its high quality, innovative product and has been building on that reputation ever since. Since April 2007 The Five Mile Press has been wholly owned by Bonnier Publishing Ltd which is part of the Swedish media giant Bonnier AB. The Five Mile Press is now one of the strongest children’s book and novelty publishers in Australia.

The Five Mile Press required an eCommerce site but with the added complication that the CMS element needed to be quite sophisticated. Most eCommerce platforms manage products very well but struggle to allow easy manipulation of content. Digital republic built the site on Umbraco CMS with an eCommerce extension to ensure that the products and the CMS were tightly integrated and easy to manage.
