What We've Done

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.

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.

When P5 Group was looking to create a dynamic website, they looked to Freelock Computing to help. Using Drupal as a CMS platform, we created a site with multiple access levels for their wide range of clientele, implemented the use of Panels to help manage a complex CSS layout, and provided P5 Group with a way to reach their clients in new, unique ways.

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.

Joey Klein's team approached Freelock to rescue their website revamp. Through the course of their planning stages, the original developers found that they had reached a point where they did not have the capacity or expertise to complete the project as agreed upon.

Freelock entered the picture and delivered a sophisticated event registration, member subscription, and CRM system.

In June of 2015, our collegue recommended our Drupal maintenance services to the National Center for Science Education. Our colleague was looking forward to large project and just didn't have the bandwidth to maintain their website. But, since we have our maintenance processes streamlined and love taking on new clients, this was a no brainer!

For the Bellingham School District, Freelock put together a large, multi-faceted Drupal site for district-wide information and standardized sites for schools within the district containing individualized content. Freelock created custom department menu functionality and directory lookups for the district site, as well as providing extensive training material, ongoing consulting, and importation of several thousand pages of content previously managed using Dreamweaver.

Snoqualmie Tribe contacted us in December of 2014 in desperate need to secure their website. It turns out, they were susceptible to the Drupalgeddon attack and needed the Drupal 7.34 core security update. We were able to apply that core security update and identify any other areas that were at risk. In addition, we provided other site fixes, as they needed.

This is a collection of technical notes, tips, and tricks related to Freelock Computing's services and various open source projects. We document what sorts of things we do to get software to work, and keep it here for our benefit, but also for yours.

What we can do for you

Event management. Project management. Vendor management. ECommerce. We build sites to help you organize and get things done.

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.

Drop us a line or give us a call today!
