Zero to Whoa in 8 Weeks

October 25, 2007

Here’s a fun story about Queen Bee Creations.

They’re a hot company here in Portland that makes tres cool bags (amongst other things), and they’re growing like crazy.  They desperately needed a new website to support their burgeoning business, and no off-the-shelf e-commerce system could do the job right.  Besides requiring 100% creative control over the presentation of their site, they needed a system for managing retail and wholesale customers, tools to match their manufacturing and fulfillment processes, and a platform that would scale with their business through the holiday season and beyond.

That was eight weeks ago, and today they’re open for business.  We couldn’t have done it without a great client, or the kick ass design team at Fresh Fruit.

And we definitely couldn’t have done it without UpSale, the e-commerce platform we built specifically for growing retailers who need sophisticated tools and a high degree of customization.  We’re excited by how quickly it let us build the Queen Bee site, and with two more sites coming down the pipeline, it’s turning out to be everything we hoped it would.

Anyhow.  Enough self promotion.  Queen Bee Creations has gorgeous products and is run by fantastic people, and I’m thrilled we were able to work with them on this project.

Cheers!
