What We've Done

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!

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.

The Makah Tribe is located in Neah Bay, Washington. They had a custom portal for the Makah Tribe and the Neah Bay Community. Their website is the hub for the community, providing information for any aspect of tribal life that they may need. From tribal government, to community resources, to education and recreational information, users can find information quickly.

RadioFrame Networks came to Freelock in late 2008 for a web development project aimed at bringing their existing corporate static site content into the Joomla CMS. We worked with their existing design and web marketing strategy provided by The Garrigan Lyman Group which included implementing the design, setting up the content structure, and hosting the site as well as a development version of the site.

The Olympic Peninsula Tourism Board came to us in early 2009 to assist them in developing a visually stunning and highly functional website in a Content Management System. The site needed to be flexible enough to be managed by the 12 partners of the OPTC represented by local Chamber of Commerces. This meant the system needed to not only be able of handling complex permissions, but also easy to use and train new members.

World Class Hunting hired Freelock to launch their website with membership levels, recurring payments, contests and advertising options.

Freelock was approached to build a website focused on the “Top 50” Day Trips from Seattle, based on rankings and reviews from users.

Locker Soccer Acadamy

In December of 2013, our friends at Locker Soccer Academy reached out to us regarding their soccer academy sites, that were already developed by a shop in Colombus, Ohio. The development shop was closing and they referred Locker Soccer to us.

What we've learned

When choosing any service provider, a crucial question is, "What happens if something goes wrong?

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.

  1. I recommend you use Linux for your server(s). Mine are so reliable, it shocked me that after years of Microsoft-based expectations, I have no complaints now after many many years experience with Linux servers supporting a mixed Win2K and Apple OSX workstation network. Freelock has really opened my eyes to what I should be expecting from enterprise software. Linux is simply much better than anything Microsoft has done, and even on Microsoft's best day, Microsoft is too expensive, too proprietary and too unreliable. There is just no reason to keep putting ourself through that grief, constant change, and endless high cost.
