Adding a webshop to your site can be a headache, especially if you have a large sales catalog which has to be migrated online. You don’t want your existing site to experience any downtime, and you want customers to find shopping online with you easy and intuitive, while still providing them with the products and information they expect. When Advanced Marine Technologies wanted to consolidate their product catalogs and add a new online store, they came to Gossamer Threads to give them all the functionality they wanted without any hassle or unnecessary change to their workflow. Here’s how we helped AMT make the move into e-commerce smoothly and securely, using Gossamer Links and a custom shopping cart, and implementing a careful and detailed import of AMT’s multiple product catalogs.
AMEinfo is the premier Middle Eastern business site, delivering news and other media to over 50,000 visitors per day. Gossamer Threads has been AME’s technical partner since 2002. We’ve developed templates, improved architecture, and upgraded their hosting platform as the site’s grown, helping the site grow and flourish to the point that it was recently sold for $27 million US. After the sale, the new site owners decided they wanted a fresh facelift for the site. Impressed with the role GT had played in AME’s success, they asked us to reinvent the site and create a new AMEinfo.

Folioplanet gives artists the opportunity to share portfolios of their work quickly and easily. Like many sites built around user accounts, Folioplanet offers its users a variety of account-specific options and upgrades, and wanted to add a coupon system to their site, which was developed around Gossamer Links.
