Branding and Website Development for a Local FMCG Brand

Heart Of Malaysia


In Malaysia, a new brand, Heart Of MY, operating within the framework of a well-established parent company, is gaining attention with its varied range of products, discreetly adapting its digital footprint. With multiple brands under its umbrella, the company is embarking on a transformative journey, aiming to consolidate its online presence through a unified e-commerce platform. Previously relying on individual websites for distinct brands, the company envisions a comprehensive online marketplace that offers customers the convenience of purchasing all their products from a single destination.

Our Challenges & Goals

The challenges faced by our client were multi-faceted, ranging from the fragmentation of their online presence across various brand-centric websites to the need for enhanced customer engagement. To address these issues, the goals were set as follows:

Diverse Brands, Separate Websites

Having various brands under its umbrella, the company faced challenges due to the inefficiency of maintaining individual websites for each brand. This situation prompted the need for a consolidated e-commerce platform.

Fragmented Customer Experience

The absence of a single online marketplace made it difficult for customers to have a smooth experience, as they had to navigate through various websites to explore different brands.

Maximising Customer Loyalty

Seeking to foster customer loyalty, a points and rewards system was envisioned, encouraging regular customers to convert purchases into tangible rewards.

Internal Efficiency

Recognising the need for internal cohesion, the company aimed to streamline staff purchases through a dedicated discount system linked to staff email addresses.

Diverse Payment Options

Facilitating smooth transactions was a priority, aimed to offer customers diverse payment methods, catering to the preferences of the Malaysian market.

Streamlined Internal Processes

Integrating the website with the warehouse management system required meticulous attention to detail, ensuring accurate stock management, order fulfilment, and seamless communication between the digital platform and the physical warehouse.

Accurate Product Integration

The tedious task of aligning product photos and SKUs between the website and the warehouse management system was a critical challenge for accurate order fulfilment.

User-Friendly Interface

Implement a product search function, create a frontend user dashboard for customer purchase history, and enhance the overall user experience.


Integrate with Email Octopus for effective communication on the latest news and events. Set up various contact forms for general inquiries and corporate or bulk purchases.

Testing and Security

Conduct rigorous testing, including sandbox accounts for the payment gateway and shipping method, to ensure a smooth transition from development to live.
