So… Where are you going to go when your robot loses a finger? or the ‘suck’ is gone from its suction? or you need a whole different set of robot end of arm tools to take on a new manufacturing job?
Robo-Tool, of course.
Long time supplier of robotic end of arm tooling, Robo-Tool, asked the Imagination Factory to make a new site that was easier to navigate, mobile and search friendly and could support e-commerce. We were happy to comply.

Although well known by the ‘mac’ folks in the area, CompuCraft is one of West Michigan’s few true cross-platform technology solution providers. They’re platform agnostic, meaning they’ll match AND support the technology, whether its a Mac or a PC (or both), to their clients’ specific needs.
Their old site was more apple-centric and the owners wanted to present their story and services in a more agnostic way and to make it mobile responsive, so they asked the Imagination Factory to help re-imagine the site.

Some things haven’t changed throughout three generations of service. Today, Bos Greenhouse uses the latest planting techniques and the best agricultural science to produce superior seedlings and delectable vegetables. This enables them to deliver high quality products at fair market prices. Though farm practices have changed, their homespun philosophy hasn’t.
What also has changed is their logo AND the milestone of being awarded the ‘Centennial Farm’ designation.
To celebrate, the Imagination Factory was asked to give the site an entire overhaul. Similar to the advance in farming, Bos wanted the new site to be mobile responsive, easy for them to manage, flexible enough for them to add their farm reports, recipes, and other tips, and above all be visible in search engines so more people could see what Bos has to offer.

One of the downsides of direct mail is the cost per home to deliver it. Great Deals Magazine helps to mitigate that cost by offering co-op direct mail where all the advertisers share in the overall cost of the production and delivery. That said, Great Deals delivers to over 340,000 homes in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Battle Creek and that translates into a substantial postage bill.
So when the post office started offering incentives to utilize QR tags (those funny square barcodes) that drove the recipient to a mobile friendly website, Great Deals decided it was time revamp their site.
Working with the owner, the Imagination Factory re-designed the older static site into a more search and mobile friendly CMS (content managed) site. Each of the USPS promotion rules are quite specific, so we also needed to create a site structure and several QR tags to perform everything from a simple click to call to more involved mobile ecommerce functions.
