What We've Done

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.

Bonavita World Homepage

In early 2014, our friends at Bonavita came to Freelock requesting that we help manage their main website Espresso Supply. Soon thereafter, they wanted to launch a website for one of their brands, Bonavita. But it wasn't until early summer that they were ready to realize those dreams. 

Alaska Fishing Jobs Center hired Freelock to build their website. Freelock implemented design, functionality and added Ubercart for membership purchases.

LedgerSMB is an open source accounting and financial package. Freelock has used LedgerSMB for its bookkeeping since the project began and has customized it to maximize the User experience.

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.

Nightingale came to us with projects for both internal and external use. These included: building of a school directory, email list integration with Mail Chimp, Magnus Health Integration (for online student health form management), and ticket sales management for annual fundraising events.

The customization for this site included creation of a user profile system on Nightingale. We also needed to integrate with Ubercart, an e-commerce solution for Drupal 6.

Maltby Produce Markets grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables in their fields, orchards, and greenhouses in Snohomish County. They hired Freelock to build a website that included Ubercart, order and customer management, reporting and automated scheduling.

Freelock worked closely with Consumer Media Network to create a content management system (Hydra) that can track assignments and submissions.

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. What a pleasure to work with Freelock in launching our family website for the West Seattle community. John and Jill were vital to our success. We quickly saw that Drupal could handle our scope of requirements and thrilled to find that many of our wish list features were doable with such a capable staff. Communication and support are out of this world impressive with the Freelock team and set the standard for the industry. On time and in budget. Freelock is the clear choice.
