Back in the fall of 2011, Portland-based McMenamins approached us with the opportunity to take over the design, development, and maintenance efforts for a number of web applications powering their online reservations, event schedules, marketing promotions, mobile site, location finders, and content management. Having been patrons of their pubs, hotels and restaurants, we were thrilled to even be considered for the project.
We officially took over the project in December of 2011, and to ensure stability we focused on bug fixes and migrating to a more stable hosting environment. A few months later, we worked together to improve the user’s navigation experience and enhanced their social media presence. We also helped develop their mobile site, utilizing our front-end development expertise along with back-end skills to pull data from multiple databases to create a seamless user experience. Most recently, our team has been hard at work designing and developing a refocused McMenamins homepage that balances the story of the brand with rich online content.
We are excited to be a part of the McMenamins team. Each of us at Planet Argon has had many memories formed at their establishments and have left with a positive customer experience. It’s a nice change to be a customer of a customer every once in awhile.
