This project was a lot of firsts for us at SBF Solutions. We were connected to the owner of Runflex through common pastime and noticed a post from Runflex's owner on Facebook asking if anyone knew anything about websites. At this stage there was no brief or strategy in place. What followed was an exchange of messages over Facebook to determine what they needed. This was a first. The project apart from one call on Skype was conducted purely over Facebook. Certainly a change from our usual projects.
Runflex put their trust in us to develop their site and guide them to what they needed. Another first for us was working with nopCommerce, an open source eCommerce platform that was able to be extended. After a brief training session over Skype, Runflex were up and running with populating the site and at the start of December 2015 the site was launched. Integrating the platform with PayPal Runflex were ready to do business. The website was built by creating a fully responsive design to give the user the best experience.
A completely virtual and remote project, the first time we actual met Runflex was at an event where our staff got the opportunity to see their products for the first time.
