Tots, a custom made e-commerce
Tots is an e-commerce company specialized in bathroom and tiles based in France. It offers a wide selection of products for bathroom renovations, as well as solutions to arrange and successfully design your room project.
Taking over the old website and to meet the different needs and expectations of Tots, a custom made e-commerce was the optimal choice allowing for a unique identity, better branding, customizable modules, full ownership and control in order to optimize and improve performance.
With this in mind, we assisted Tots.fr in the redesign of its visual identity and its website.pièce.Visit website
Betting on the UX/UI design
Sanitaryware is wide-ranging. So is the product catalog of Tots. To allow users to find the products they are looking for in a minimum of time. A well-organized menu was developed during the design phase to facilitate navigation on the site and to allow users a simple and fluid experience. On the category page, a powerful and intuitive filter system was developed to categorize the different types of products.
These categories have been well thought out to attract target customers, make it easier to find products on the site and improve Search Engine Optimization ( SEO) by allowing search engines to better understand the site structure. Our graphic designers have also designed identifiable icons, personalized and consistent with the graphic charter while respecting the fundamental principles of icon design thus bringing dynamism to the site.
Optimized product descriptions
Due to the wide variety of products offered in the catalog, it was necessary to standardize the product sheets in order to make them easier to consult for customers. Thus, standard product sheets were created, each of which includes a detailed description of the product, with information on its features and functionality. In addition, the product sheets also provide technical documents and user manuals to help customers better understand the products they wish to purchase.
Audios from salespeople and demonstration videos have also been added to the product descriptions of certain products to hold the attention of visitors. This strategy aims to provide visitors with an immersive and interactive experience, helping them to better understand the features and benefits of the products presented.
To ensure that these additions do not hinder the overall performance of the site, the videos have been optimized and worked on to reduce the bounce rate and not slow down the website, thus ensuring a smooth and pleasant navigation for the visitors.
In addition, a delivery date is also indicated on each product sheet to allow customers to plan their purchase. The customer can postpone the date of receipt of the product and choose a date that suits him, this is done through a feature developed custom for Tots which is connected in real time with the management of stocks and carriers.

A cost-effective customer tunnel
In order to fully satisfy the needs of Tots’ customers, our UX/UI designers used their expertise to create a simplified customer tunnel, despite the complexity of the product and its delivery method. This tunnel was designed in 3 steps in order to facilitate the navigation of customers by avoiding any obstacle or friction point.
As for the delivery stage, it is a complex stage that requires rigorous management to deal with the particularities and different shapes of the products. This stage provides all the necessary information on the size of the product, the carrier and the date of receipt.
As for the payment stage, it offers customers the possibility of choosing the payment method that best suits their preferences, including options such as Paypal, CIC or payment in 3 or 4 downpayments.
The tunnel ends with an order confirmation step, which makes it easy and quick to finalize the purchase process while promoting customer loyalty.
A customer area was also developed to allow customers to track their order history and account, easily place their orders on record, download their invoices, receive personalized offers and promotions, access after-sales service and finally leave reviews on the products they have purchased, allowing future buyers to take into account the experiences of other customers who have purchased and used the product. The Trust pilot solution was used to have more credibility and reliability on customer reviews and establish an e-reputation with the target customers.
A professional reseller platform has been developed to simplify the process of creating reseller profiles and to automate the management of different discount tiers according to their industry. In addition to this practical aspect, this page also allows to increase brand awareness by reaching a wider audience and to quickly stimulate business growth through the acquisition of new customers via resellers. In short, this space aims to optimize business relationships with resellers and leverage their network to extend the brand’s reach and increase its visibility.
