Web Design + Development
Our work is always focused on generating results, whether visits, sales, recruits, whatever needs you have. From a business point of view, a site should also become a revenue source whether it's selling tickets, soliciting donations, selling merchandise, taking orders, or at the very least, a cost-aversion tool (freeing up personnel from time-wasting tasks like directions, hours, costs, etc).
The new site for PackingStuff is entirely built in WordPress/WooCommerce. The product data came from a the client's wholesaler via SOAP API. The data was loaded into the database, then the uploaded to the site via custom calls to the WooCommerce REST API. The original category structure was maintained in order to keep the product category structure conformed to the original data source. There is a nightly series of cron jobs that execute to pick up all the data in xml from the wholesaler and replace the data in the tables. Then the skus in the tables are matched to the product id numbers from WooCommerce. Once this is complete, the changes in the data are pushed to the live site via the API. The layout of the site is different from most WooCommerce sites, using an order table format rather than product images in columns and rows. There is another call to the wholesaler at the cart/checkout level, when the custom shipping method touches the API to get a shipping quote, and then again when the order is placed. After Stripe authorizes the charge, the complete order is passed to the wholesaler for fulfillment. The site is extensively optimized, including schema data, and all the products are in the Google Merchant Center for use in both paid and organic advertising.
The new site for Meriden Markham Airport includes a weather widget on every page, as well up to the minute ASOS data. There is also the ability to register UAS flight right from the homepage, review all current pricing for services, info, news, as well as events, pilot groups, and IAP charts.
There is also a full site management tool to keep the data fresh.
Our site for Best Energy includes an integrated Credit Card processor API which uses cURL to securely transfer the data to the Merchant Account, and all the purchases and account payments are stored in the database and the system also coordinates deliveries, boiler maintenance appointments, installations, and invoices.
The site for the New Milford Medical Group includes a full content management system, as well as specifically tailored copy triggers, and the site we built for New Milford Historical Society uses all the terrific technology we already had in the site and adds in content management and a full section for site exhibits, old, new, and permanent!
