The website

We hope you find our website easy to navigate, easy to understand, and easy to use.

Exchange Supplies isn't one of those huge companies with hundreds of staff and a massive website with the bare minimum of information needed to sell stuff: it's all hand crafted.

The website is mostly a collaborative team effort between Exchange Supplies founder/managing director Andrew Preston, our graphic designer Mark Bunegar at Fluke Design, and programmer Mark Machin, who used to work for IT company Enhanced Computer Solutions, but who now works full time at Exchange Supplies who wrote the software code that makes the webshop work.

Andrew and Mark designed the website, and gave the pictures of how we wanted it to look to Mark Machin to code into a fully functioning website that works in all web browsers. Mark wrote the code for the webshop database in a computer language called php, and has written it so we can log into the site content manager from anywhere, and make changes - so If you spot any mistakes or missing links, or if you don't understand anything, send an email to and it'll be fixed ASAP.

The webshop is fully integrated with our accounts system – Microsoft Dynamics Business Central so that when you place an order, the webshop is able to load it straight into Business Central with no re-keying of information - and the order lands on our computers in Dorchester with a pre-prepared illustrated packing list, your delivery note, and a copy of the invoice/payment details all ready to be printed out, and sent off to you.

The software that links the webshop with our accounts system was written by our in-house web developer, Mark Machin.

This means that if there's any features you think we should add to the site, or things we could do to help you find what you're looking for, drop a line, and he might well be able to sort it out - indeed, if it's something that's already possible from within the database (and it usually is ;-), he will often be able to do it straight away.
