With 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.
We’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.
Production will move to our new design studio on Grand River. Our web and mail servers will remain buried in the secure vault (with multiple bandwidth, power, A/C and security measures) where they have been since time immortal.
We are proud to announce the launch of a brand new site for Grand Rapids based Paragon D&E.
As many manufacturers, such as Paragon, are learning, their company website is becoming a more important part of the ISO 9000 audit & certification process. This clean, responsive design allows Paragon to expand information on their industry service areas as well as provide detailed information on their unique capabilities.
Spring is in the air, and that means it is time for seasonal updates to our various MiLB clients.
As such we have just launched the upcoming seasons updates to the secure suite catering online order systems for the Dayton Dragons, the Oklahoma City Redhawks, and the Tulsa Drillers. In years previous, we also created similar online order systems for West Michigan Whitecaps, Lansing Lugnuts, and Montgomery Biscuits.
We are proud to announce that we are all giving up the design life to follow the trail of gold into executive banking and wealth management… Well, we might not be the desired candidates, but we did build a great new site for The Anderson Search Group to attract qualified candidates for positions in Global Banking & Markets; Public Finance; Asset & Wealth Management.
