Interim Website Bridges Present and Future Needs

When Redbud Fitness and Lifestyle Center came to us they needed a new website, fast.  

They'd already begun construction on a fabulous new 35,000 square foot facility and needed to tell that story while promoting business at their current location. The old website wasn't doing either.

After reviewing the (many) new services and programs they'd be providing at the new facility it was clear that they'd need an enterprise class website. Unfortunately, the development time for design, coding, testing, training, integration and implementation of an enterprise site stretches into several months. They needed a new website much sooner than that.

Our solution: We built an interim site (in about two weeks!) to help get them bridge the gap while we're working on the longer-term website. The interim site is now up at

While it doesn't do everything the next site will do, it is a huge improvement over the prior site, with simplified navigation, improved mobile usability, and access to their class scheduling and membership functions. Most importantly, it promotes their current business while building excitement for what's coming soon!

Here's a link to their launch announcement with more info on Redbud Fitness and their new facility.

The Greatest Invention of the Last Two Centuries?

In our estimation, the greatest invention of the last 200 years isn't the computer; (although computers are pretty cool); it's actually indoor plumbing.

So holding plumbers in very high esteem, (as we do) we were pleased with the engagement to design and build an all new website for the plumbing and HVAC experts at All Pro Services.

The project included some custom coding to create a new Service Call Scheduling tool that allows dozens of customer variables to be specified (in advance) to speed response times and further improve All Pro's (already outstanding) service.

The site also supports secure e-commerce allowing visitors to sign up for a Comfort Club Membership online. In fact, not only is the e-commerce engine secure, the whole site is engineered for HTTPS security with 2048 bit encryption throughout.

Have to say, we really enjoyed creating a website to help the All Pro team service and support "the greatest invention of the last two centuries." Keep up the good work guys!
