What We've Done

RevEquip create 3D documents and design for the food service industry. We worked in partnership with graphic design firm Eben Design to build a Drupal website for RevEquip.

Geocko builds powerful tools that save time and increase engagement for nonprofit organizations. Geocko hired Freelock to build a system that would pull in information from designated social media feeds (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc) and display it in a grid of tiles.

WestSide Baby, in partnership with the Puget Sound community, provides essential items to local children in need by collecting and distributing diapers, clothing, toys and equipment. They partner with established social service providers who assess the needs of their clients, place orders with us and then deliver them to the families they serve.

We originally partnered with CRPE's in-house web manager in 2012. He was familiar with the content management aspect of Drupal, but needed a bit of support with the more intricate ways that Drupal can extend a CMS. We started with an enhancement project to develop a snapshot comparison system. Once launched, they opted for a monthly retainer plan, to support their day-to-day operations as a partner and to offer consultation on best practices.

Max Dale's Steak House is a popular restaurant a few dozen miles up the road in Mt. Vernon, Washington. Skagit Media Marketing led the design effort, and partnered with us to deliver the first of our new Basic Business Sites.

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.

Jim Ovia Foundation

We originally worked with the main Jim Ovia stakeholder on a separate project, when she worked with a different giving organization. She then reached out to us in September of 2015 to let us know that the Jim Ovia Foundation was looking to build a new website and platform for the foundation. Based on the RFP that she presented to us, we were able to give her a proposal to get them their desired result.

We initially built an online based intranet for I-TECH and in this project we took their initial work and upgraded to Drupal 7 alongside drastic changes to interface and user experience to streamline the activities they have discovered are most useful organizationally. Additionally, the new version added new functionality for expanded tracking of grant acquisition.

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.
