Spin Group recently launched a new website for SecureParkingUSA.com. The main goal for the website is to connect drivers to one of the many SecureParkingUSA parking facilities. Having already invested in a solid user interface experience, SecureParkingUSA tasked us with building the site based on their design while adding map search and blogging functionality. Their old website did not have a location search and was difficult to maintain. Since mobile devices are primarily used for finding parking spots, building the location search and keeping it updated with new locations was very important.
Both the client and our developers agreed that WordPress was the platform to build on. One of the main design challenges was to incorporate a search feature that would find nearby parking areas and display them on a map. To minimize custom development costs, we searched for existing but solid plugins that can save time and money to build the location search feature.
We ended up leveraging a WordPress plugin called LocateWP. It provided a good location search platform with features we needed already in place. With a bit of customization, this plugin gave the website the capability to search local parking garages without the cost of starting from scratch.
LocateWP uses the Google Maps API. The beauty of using the Google Maps API is that it provides large-scale geographic integration at a low-cost. It is also very reliable. Google also provides a lot of the documentation necessary to embed their map services.
Another feature we added include a way to easily relate promotions and news to parking locations and regions, so that visitors will only get promos and news that are relevant to them.
Overall, the customer was very happy with the result. If your site requires location search or some other custom functionality, call us to discuss! By leveraging existing WordPress tools to your advantage, we can add significant value to your project.
Our client, Boschert USA, needed a new web-page that showed clients exactly what their profile bending technology could do. This content needed to be engaging, and they wanted a focus on “big images.” Spin Group collaborated with designers at Raddesigns to create a website with both strong, informative content as well as a modern UX.
This website uses full-width imagery while displaying some heavy-duty technical information. Ample use of large, high-resolution background photos shows visitors the capability of PBT machines in an nonintrusive way. See the website here.

The client was in need of a new website that shows visitors the capability of their robotic equipment and manufacturing methods. Rad Design was responsible for the project management and creative work. Spin Group then implemented the designs using the Divi theme and page builder framework. We customized this page by adding Gravity Forms enhancements, a jobs management system, and advanced Divi-related plugins and libraries. It also has informative, but not overwhelming text blocks and an improved navigation structure.
