Buildsomething.com is an online community where do-it-yourself project builders come together to inspire and be inspired.
A goal of BuildSomething.com is for members to connect with others who share their project-building passion. We built a website that allows members to upload plans, follow friends, create builds of plans, and make comments.
The "plans" section allows users to view plans submitted by other users or certified plans from Kreg. Filters and sorting were added to help users find exactly what they are looking for.
Each project plan has its own page with directions, tools, materials, and a parts/cut list. Users can view pictures and videos and post comments for moderators or other users to answer. There is also a "view builds" functionality that allows users to see how others have completed the plan.
BuildSomething wanted to make it easy for people to create an account and become a member. Spinutech built a login that allows users to leverage a social media account they already have or make a new account with BuildSomething.com.
“Partnering with Spinutech was absolutely the right choice for us. From the minute we introduced ourselves we felt Spinutech had our best interests in mind. Spinutech listened to our needs and delivered. One of the things I like best about Spinutech is how the staff (from the Leadership Team, to the Designers, Developers, and Project Manager) understands our needs, has the ability to deliver, and offers insights from their professional point of view. I have personally project managed 7 website launches and only have the ones that Spinutech developed come in on-time and on-budget. Spinutech is not just a vendor for our business... they are a partner.”Brent Gantenbein, Creative Services Manager, Kreg Tool Company
