Tigé Boats

The Tigé Boats project has been exciting to work on from day 1. At last, it’s launched! Alongside Frank & Victor Design and Quotient Solutions, Fat Free Interactive was tasked to build the new Tigé Boats website into the Expression Engine CMS so the client can manage the site-wide content for their online presence.

Many aspects of the site were fairly complex. For example, individual boat pages (like the RZ4, RZ2, RZR and the others) each contain a wide variety of content-specific area’s on the page. The client can now easily change imagery and content/data through Expression Engine without the help from a developer.

The site’s cinema page, Team Tigé directory and Tigé Features are just a few other area’s of the site that are completely managed through Expression Engine.

Of course, it helps to have a design team like Frank & Victor Design designing such and incredible site before we coded. It’s extremely crisp and attractive which gives Tigé Boats an extremely strong web presence. Here at FFI, we feel very fortunate to have been a part of this fantastic project!

Starmount Systems

Starmount Systems is a POS (Point-Of-Sale) software development company. Their three main products are focused on Mobile POS Software, Digital Signage Software and Interactive Kiosk Software.

In partnership with Frank & Victor Design (FVD) and Quotient Solutions, we were tasked with taking the FVD web design and implementing it into the Expression Engine CMS. Nearly every aspect of the site is managed to make the long-term maintenance of the site much easier for the Starmount leadership team.

Along with a new blog, we also implemented cookie-based forms into the site in order to generate many more leads from customers visiting the site. We thoroughly enjoyed the project and hope Starmount continues to be successful in the mobile POS industry!

Grasshopper

We worked with Grasshopper on a few projects. Because of the relative mess of their existing Expression Engine websites, we were tasked to not only clean up the code across all Grasshopper sites, but also upgrade each EE installation and implement the sites into one EE Multiple Site Manager. It was a tall task, but in the end very successful!

Initially, the three Grasshopper Group sites (Chargify.com, Spreadable.com and Grasshopper.com were all living in separate versions of Expression Engine (1.6.7, 1.6.8, and 2.1). We upgraded each version to the latest stable EE version and then got to work on cleaning up the code.

As Grasshopper.com is the main product of the Grasshopper Group, the Expression Engine MSM would live with that site. As each site progressed in it’s specific code clean-up, they were then plugged into the MSM as to make the overall maintenance of the sites easier.

Now that the sites are all in one place, Grasshopper has noticed an increase in speed and a much better experience within the Expression Engine control panel for both the development team and marketing team(s). This is one company to keep watching. Who knows what type of cool products they’ll come up with next!

Chargify

Chargify is another creation of the talented David Hauser and Siamak Taghaddos. The company Chargify simplifies recurring billing for Web 2.0 and SaaS companies by providing an online application for small businesses to track and process payments from customers. Chargify has been so successful that it recently got an investment from the well-known pockets of Mark Cuban. This is all in the wake of the failure of their Spreadable product and continued success of their virtual phone system, grasshopper.

We worked with the team at the Grasshopper Group to implement all of their core marketing sites (currently just Grasshopper and Chargify) into one installation of the Expression Engine Multiple Site Manager (MSM) from multiple old versions of the Expression Engine software. Chargify was the first of GG’s marketing sites to get upgraded to the latest version of EE. Along with a much-needed upgrade to the latest version of EE, the site’s overall performance has vastly improved.

The Grasshopper Group will continue to be successful. They have a tremendous team of developers and designers that are sure to make the company a power-player for years to come.

Spreadable

*** The site has been shut down as of 04.2011

Spreadable is the brain-child of a couple of genius entrepreneurs, Dave Hauser and Siamak Taghaddos, the co-Founders of the Grasshopper Group and a suite of products: Grasshopper Virtual Phone System, Chargify Recurring Billing System and Spreadable.

Fat Free Interactive was brought on to help with a catalog of sites for Grasshopper Group. The first to be launched is Spreadable. Spreadable.com was developed in Expression Engine, but contained a box full of issues that would drive any web team crazy. With the new Spreadable site design came a brand new integration of the site into Expression Engine along with some very powerful functionality and much-improved page loading speed.

The team at Grasshopper Group is, bar none, an extremely talented group. With the new-and-improved Spreadable site, they will have more time to focus on what is really important to them: Empowering entrepreneurs around the world!

Coca-Cola Amatil

There's nothing better than an opportunity to help out a well-known design shop (e-brands | e-brands Austraila) with a project for one of the most well-known brands in the world, Coca-Cola. Our task in the project life cycle was to get the code base in to order so that it could be passed along to the development team at CCA to work around. Along with some nifty JQuery functionality, many modern techniques were used to provide an enjoyable UI for visitors to the site.

Although we were not directly involved with the video's on the site, we highly recommend taking a look at them - top notch!

Tower Dental Suites

You won’t find a much better location to get your teeth cleaned than at this office space. Our good friend, Jed Heuer, designed the site and asked for us to whip together some code to put the design to work on the web. We threw in a bit of jquery to make the user interface a bit more exciting.

You should take a look at the photo’s from the office space. Incredible view!

The Madden Bible

The Madden Bible had already been a success, but asked us to help bring their online presence to the next level. Prior to our work, the site gained a large amount of fan followers, but not much as far as “organic” traffic. We set off to change the visibility of the site.

Our first step was to move the site over to the Wordpress software. This allowed for a much easier consolidation of information as well as many more options for the future needs of the site. The immediate results were dramatic, with an increase in search engine “organic” traffic for the target demographic. The madden bible continues to evolve in it’s industry, and we look forward to helping them develop new online marketing strategies that will allow them to grow.

Merchandising Matters Now

Robin Enright, the operator of the Merchandising Matters Now blog, came to me with the hope of easing the stress of creating content. Originally created on blogger, we completely revamped Robin’s blog to work in tandem with her need to update content often. Our user interface was specifically catered to Robin’s needs and the site was built on Expression Engine’s CMS to ensure Robin could easily get her point across.

If merchandising didn’t matter before, merchandising matters now!

Young Broadcasters of America

Throughout our relationship with the folks at Young Broadcasters of America, we’ve taken motivation from the passion of the YBA staff to make sure we create a website they can also be passionate about. The current YBA site is built entirely on the Wordpress platform which makes it easy for the staff of YBA to blog and update information at will. We were glad to be a part of the initial launch of the site in early 2010, and continue to enjoy the mission YBA is on.

Note : site no longer under the control of Fat Free Interactive.

Affectel Voip

The owner of Affectel came back to us with a new need, a website for a new branch of the company, Affectel VOIP (voice over internet protocol). Because we already had the layout built up for them through a previous project, we decided to get a bit more creative. A new interface along with the inclusion of flash banners and jquery functionality made the end result a bit more exciting than it’s predecessor.

How does it go?  All good things come in two’s?

Tangent Partners

Although the previous site was operational, it screamed of the all too common, out of date look. What did we do? Just a little something called “rebuilding from scratch.” We designed and developed a new look and feel for the site, along with some standard search engine optimization and a touch of jquery.

Health care recruiting never looked so good ...

Affectel

There was no question that Affectel needed a website overhaul.  We provided Affectel with a new user interface and made sure to keep it simple.  The site was designed with the industry in mind. Corporate colors and a simple layout were used to make sure the proper information was conveyed at all times.

Scalped Productions

This small, Boston based production company came to us to help re-vitalize it’s online image.  Our main focus was to implement a video gallery into the site so that clients and potential clients of Scalped Productions could view past work.  For a production company, showing video on the business website was a no brainer!  We developed a tangible page hierarchy so that visitors to the site could browse with ease along with an updated user interface.
