What We've Done

Booktrope's goal of getting online books to as many people as possible (for free!) was a project right up our alley, fitting nicely with our open source foundation.

Littlestar Prints is one of our favorite sites. It combines some powerful drag-and-drop photo editing in the browser with e-commerce. We got to use both of our favorite software packages--Drupal and the Dojo Toolkit.

World Class Hunting hired Freelock to launch their website with membership levels, recurring payments, contests and advertising options.

Another large scale project by Freelock Computing, the Organic Materials Research Institute tested our abilities to work with a variety of sources and the Drupal system. The project brought their old public facing website built on PHP to the Drupal CMS and is still synced nightly with their internal master database built on Access.

The folks at WSFZ needed a directory-based website that was easy to maintain and easy to use. WSFZ wanted a clean, simple design that allows for blogging, reader comments, and advertising.

Freelock teamed up with Eben Design to build a new site for Totem Ocean Trailer Express. The website includes frequently updated maps, cameras and easy to update scheduling.

Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. Freelock built a website that facilitates and supports the community through membership, training, classes, and merchandising.

The Olympic Peninsula Tourism Board came to us in early 2009 to assist them in developing a visually stunning and highly functional website in a Content Management System. The site needed to be flexible enough to be managed by the 12 partners of the OPTC represented by local Chamber of Commerces. This meant the system needed to not only be able of handling complex permissions, but also easy to use and train new members.

Sample checklist

We solve problems.

Lots of our business comes from people who have been unable to get the job done elsewhere.

The challenge with any web project is usually budget -- getting a polished, usable product to match a specific design can take far more budget than people expect. Our approach to addressing this concern is breaking down projects into Sprints, each sprint a focused group of tasks with a defined budget, starting with the things that will deliver the most business value as early as possible.

And then when the first sprint is done, we've delivered something of business value, we plan out the next one.

The launch of a new web site is the start of the project, not the end. You don't stop marketing when you've opened a new store -- marketing is an ongoing activity to keep the world aware you exist.

And even if a site is purely for internal use, organizations change and evolve over time. Most of our clients work with us on a monthly retainer basis, setting aside budget for steady work towards the current business goals.

Sample TCO

When you work with Freelock, you're not just getting a passive subcontractor. We bring opinions to the table. You hire us because we have decades of experience in a variety of industries, and knowledge of things that work and things that don't.

We partner with our customers to find the best solutions to help them succeed. And we're not shy about advocating some approaches over others, or pushing back when we think you're heading down a dead end.

We're not the cheapest shop out there, but with us you're getting more than just a developer -- you're getting a partner who can steer you clear of technology pitfalls, suggest possible new revenue streams or marketing outlets or workflow improvements -- we  deliver strategic value to your business along with our technical solutions.

  1. I wanted to touch base and thank you for your team’s quality work on the FHCRC eagle-i connection project.  The system is live and in production – pushing our Drupal content automatically to Harvard’s system.

    We’re very grateful for all the efforts your crew put into this project! Freelock is on my speed dial for future projects!
