Site Launch: Century Hardware

August 15th, 2014 by Ted Bailey

IFIblog_CHDWR_smWith a tradeshow looming, Century Hardware, unhappy with the limitations of their existing site, came to the Imagination Factory for help. Their list of wants was extensive.

The site needed to be mobile responsive and retina display friendly; it needed to have integrated ecommerce with multi-level wholesale/retail pricing as well as the ability to accept POs and generate invoices and accept credit card payments online; it needed to be able to restrict quantities for select products and provide control over the online customers (who can buy wholesale, at what rate, who can use POs, etc).

The site needed to allow users to filter the products against numerous criteria (including finish, function, style, size, etc.) and it needed to allow the user to save their own wishlist of items for later use; it also was to include a ‘find a dealer’ function and a interactive flip-book (both also mobile friendly); and oh yeah… it eventually needs to be multi-lingual ready (with chinese and spanish targeted languages).

Quite a tall order, but you may visit Century’s new site and see it in action.

News: IFI is on the Move

Ionia StudioWe’re excited to be on the move as of Friday, February 28th to the vibrant, historic Blodgett building downtown!

After 10 years out by the GR airport, another 20 years along the Grand River (last 10 at the Brassworks building), the Imagination Factory is expanding to two locations.

Our client center and NEW business address is 15 Ionia SW, Suite 220; Grand Rapids, MI 40503 and will be dedicated to project meetings and training.
