Game On Games
Game On is is a hobby and game store founded in McCook, Nebraska. They have since added a Kearney, Nebraska store. Game On sell thousand of products in both locations as well as running numerous gaming tournaments.
While Game On came to us with a website, it was no longer scaling with their ever growing needs. The inventory syncing system they were using could no longer cope with the number of inventory items they had. We suggested a rebuild using more modern technologies.
One of the owners, Tanner, was an excellent graphic designer; he has controlled Game On's branding for years. He made numerous design samples of all the pages. We took these and created a completely unique theme for the new website.
Game On used Quickbooks Point of Sale to keep track of their 45,000+ inventory items. It was crucial item prices and quantities be synced from Quickbook to the website automatically and quickly. There was no way that this could be done by hand. While there were some out-of-the-box solutions, none supported syncing quantities from multiple physical store locations, all using Quickbooks POS, to the website. After trying out a couple of these options, we realized that a custom solution would be necessary. We created a program to aggregate the quantities and prices and update the website in real time. It has been running quite well for almost 2 years (as of November 2014).
