Ecommerce: Buy Me Some Peanuts and Cracker Jack

February 21st, 2014 by Ted Bailey

SOCS_2014The snow’s not off the ground yet for many of us ‘northerners’, but all around the country the 2014 minor league baseball season is taking shape. And once again, the Imagination Factory is being asked to come out of the dugout.

A few years ago we began developing a web application called “SOCS” (suite online catering system). Designed to allow baseball fans who have rented a game day suite, also order online from their club’s catering menu. SOCS is customized for each participating club, it calculates subtotals, figures out the tax unique to each club and determines the service fee/tip if necessary, then sends the chef their order.

This year we’ve added a few more clubs to the IFI SOCS family. If your favourite ball club doesn’t offer it yet, have them contact us at the Imagination Factory.

To bring their story and product to light, they sought out the Imagination Factory. We delivered this mobile responsive, simple ecommerce site for the bow hunter to pre-order their revolutionary tree-stand.

Site Lauch: Home Life Interiors

November 30th, 2013 by Ted Bailey

IFIblog_HLIHome Life Interiors’ goal in designing the interior of your home is to create a setting where each person entering the home environment will feel a sense of welcome and rest. They believe that a home should express the dreams and vision of the owner, not the designer.

We agree, especially as it relates to an organization’s web presence. A few months ago, Home Life’s makeover began w/ a new branding program. Now was the time to completely overhaul their site, time for the Imagination Factory to give them a new look that reflected their approach to interior design, the quality of their solutions and embraced the many mobile devices that were now in use by their clientele. And, oh yeah, make it search friendly.
