INTERLAKEN GROUP Case Study: Cost of Ownership
Responsible Land Use
Nonprofits Can Shine Too
For non-profits, cost of ownership of a website can be a major factor. When we started working with Interlaken Group, their custom built Elixir based site was hosted on a private web server that they didn't control. We had to come up to speed on Elixir, but we worked with Interlaken Group to rectify this situation and get their custom site hosted on Heroku so that they didn't have to worry about administering web servers and to make it easier for us to deploy changes. Through Heroku's pipeline feature, we were able to seamlessly enable a staging site for testing site updates. We do ongoing work with the Interlaken Group to enhance and manage their website. We most recently worked with them to redo the site's navigation structure.

Levain bakery Case Study: Cookies + Ecommerce
BUY COOKIES FROM YOUR COUCH
E-COMMERCE CONTINUES TO GET ONLY MORE COMPLEX WITH EACH PASSING YEAR.
The days of thinking that ecommerce sites are just like any other basic website are long gone. Complicated checkout flows, multiple payment options, back-office order processing and fulfillment, marketing automation, accessibility compliance, and on and on. And then there's the ecommerce platforms themselves and tons of testing. Ecommerce sites are their own full blown products and warrant full product support. When Levain contacted us for help with their Magento 2.0 site they were frustrated by an outdated agency model where they were given a new site and then put into a maintenance contract. We quickly jumped in and did what we always do which is collaborative product development. Levain's happy and so are we. They give us free cookies.

Forcebrands Case Study: Beauty. Beverage. Food.
THE DAYS OF DESIGN, PRESENT, THEN BUILD ARE OVER. COLLABORATION IS KEY.
Oftentimes, enterprises outgrow the technology they spent years building and maintaining. ForceBrands found itself in this exact position and decided it was time to design and build a new version of their jobs platform from scratch. Unfortunately, things did not work out as expected with the first firm they hired who went and designed an entire site, presented their designs, and wanted approval to build the entire thing. And so what do you do when you're in a pinch? Why, call sneakers of course. By taking a collaborative, hands-on approach with the ForceBrands team, we were able to bring much needed energy to a stalled project, help grow ForceBrands' internal team, and get it completed in a few months.
"We couldn’t ask for a better partner than Sneakers. They constantly push on themselves and our internal team to take our products to the next level.”

From there, Mission 360 will be on a firm footing to market their site with confidence and expand their functionality.
