Templating, styling, feature integration, updates

IronGlove provided development services as a partnered subcontractor to Cascade Glacier through Webship Solutions to complete a number of tasks for this PHP application. To better align with the company's strategic shift in branding, the website and its plugins were updated, forcing numerous styles to be corrected due to changes in the original 2016 architecture. The theme was modified to accept additional Sass, JS, and jQuery for easier modifications while providing enough flexibility to handle complex requests. After page style updates and mobile restyling, as well as fixing numerous bugs inherent with the updates, products were updated while others were removed and the contact pages were revisited to enable full integration with SalesForce via API. Working with the back-end of the SalesForce integration and setting up automated marketing functions (e.g., sorting and lead classification) we were able to connect the contact forms from the website directly to the CRM. IronGlove continues to provide maintenance, updates, and modifications to this brand as well as the remaining brands owned by Oregon Ice Cream.

DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME

As a professional developer that focuses on providing services to other agencies, don't ask me to cut corners or put a band-aid on it. There's a right way and a wrong way to reprioritize work and speed up production time that doesn't involve creating problems for clients. If you want my help, we're going to do this ethically, correctly, and to standards.

REALISTIC PROJECT PLANNING

When I work with your agency, expect me to be a good listener, to be confident in what I do, and to never sugarcoat things for you. If something needs to be said for the sake of your reputation and the client's project, then expect to hear it from me first. We'll work together to come up with a realistic, professional plan for your clients that won't cause them pain.

RIGHT TOOL FOR THE RIGHT JOB

I don't believe in slamming out cheap templates, using stock settings, or working fast and cheap. It's not only your harming your business image as an agency, but it will destroy my reputation as a professional developer. While I'm more than happy to help you, don't ask me to do things that should be found on cheap offshore contractor sites.

COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIP

My goal is to work in unison with your agency as a contracted senior member of your team to augment the skills and expertise you don't have in-house. We'll need to work closely together and learn to trust one another. So expect a tight working relationship with professional pushback, and you'll need to be ready to grow from day one to be successful.
