|The Voga webshop goes online
Who, science kits, gadgets - the Voga shop in Edinburgh is an Aladdin's cave
of goodies for young and (especially) older. We have
just completed their ecommerce webshop
and now you
can buy Daleks, Cybermen, Captain Scarlet and a
whole lot more,
online at Voga.
The website uses a graphic design from our friends at
Waterbomb and the Blot eCommerce system.
Martin at Voga got the product catalogue of
around 600 products entered in an extraordinarily
quick time using our content management system
and now they can take orders from the Internet,
24hrs a day.
So, the next time you're looking for a new Dalek Talking Bottle Opener, you know

hosted service where you can store your
spreadsheets online, collaborate with others in real
time on the same spreadsheet and decide who can
see them and who can't.
Useful? It might be able to save you time if you
have a need for central data that needs to be
updated by several people. Or it might just be
another advertising gimmick!
