About Lettering.com

Florida based Vinyl Print Company

It all began in his garage with just a few pieces of equipment and a website that allows people to design their own vinyl lettering online. Since then, Brad Handy has built his company with the kind of customer service and consideration for each person that any of us would hope to receive and products that bring a real value to our customers. Now a handful of family and friends and a long list of happy customers make Lettering.com Inc what it is today.

We promise to always treat our customers the way we would want to be treated, be on time, do what we say, go the extra mile, and strive for perfection in everything that we do.

Challenges & Problems

The Goal: Development of a new Customer Portal

We were very happy, when in 2022, Lettering.com reached out to us for help with their project. Together, we worked on creating a customer portal that fits all their needs and seamlessly blends with their current systems.

For any business, creating a new customer portal can be a difficult undertaking. Connecting the new gateway to their current systems is one of Lettering.com's biggest concerns. As it necessitates seamless integration with numerous data sources and apps, this can be a challenging procedure. The old system must be compatible with the new gateway, and it must be able to communicate successfully with other programs and systems, while ensuring that legacy functions keep working.

Making sure the payment mechanism is effective as well as safe, especially when handling client data, is one of the major challenges when developing such a customer portal. We had to incorporate several payment methods and service providers as we created the portal so that users would have options when making purchases.

Tech-Stack

Our Task: Developing the New Customer Portal

With Laravel, InertiaJS and VueJS

The choice was made to work with the Laravel, InertiaJS, and VueJS Stack, a reliable and cutting-edge web development stack that offers a variety of benefits. The PHP web framework Laravel is known for its beautiful syntax, strong functionalities, and effective tools for creating web applications. A frontend framework called InertiaJS helps developers to build single-page applications (SPAs) without having to construct an API. A progressive JavaScript framework for creating user interfaces, known as VueJS, has grown incredibly popular over time.

About the Tech-Stack

Laravel and VueJS

One of the most popular frameworks

Laravel is a PHP web framework with a rich set of features such as routing, authentication, and database management.

InertiaJS: No separate API required

InertiaJS is a client-side framework that enables developers to build single-page applications using server-side backends, such as Laravel. It eliminates the need for building a separate API for front-end and back-end communication.

VueJS: A modern Frontend-Choice

VueJS is a popular JavaScript framework that is lightweight, fast, and easy to use. It provides a reactive and component-based architecture that makes building complex user interfaces easy and enjoyable.

TailwindCSS: Rapidly build responsive User Interfaces

Tailwind is a CSS framework that helps developers rapidly build beautiful, responsive, and consistent user interfaces. It provides a comprehensive set of utility classes that eliminate the need for writing custom CSS styles from scratch.

Building contemporary, high-performance online apps is made possible by the combination of Laravel, InertiaJS, VueJS, and Tailwind. These technologies work together to enable developers to rapidly and effectively design complex applications with little overhead and maximum flexibility. Furthermore, these technologies have comprehensive documentation and community support, making it simple for developers to learn and get started.

Our Responsibilities

We were involved in:

Requirement Analysis

The stage of requirement analysis is when the demands of the customer are recognized, the project's scope is established, and a development strategy is developed.

Development

Development, also known as implementation, is the stage in which the website is created in accordance with the specifications, with the front end and back end working together to provide the required functionality.

Testing

To make sure the website runs without a hitch, testing involves finding bugs, security holes, and usability problems.

Delivery

Delivery also includes the website's launch, deployment, installation, etc.

Portals & Platforms - A great way to expand your Business

By providing a portal or platform, you have the opportunity to stand out from your competitors and create a special relationship with your business partners. Whether it is an internet, extranet or individual solution for your customers, there are no limits to the unique experiences we can help you provide for your partners and customers.

Mobile Apps / Hybrid Apps / PWA

A mobile app serves as a supplement to an existing website or can be developed as a stand-alone project. We develop mobile apps for iOS, Android, Hybrid, PWA, Web, and Desktop Apps.

Microservice & Micro-Frontend Development

By using microservices, our development team at Pacific Codeline can help your company shape the future through the most modern technology. While inert monoliths were the gold standard for a long time, modern software architectures consist of many individual microservices and containers.

Backend Development

Our expert team is proficient in all of the different technologies including PHP, Symfony, SQL and noSQL. If you are looking for or have questions about a backend solution, our team of backend developers at Pacific Codeline would love to help.

Conception, Consulting, Development

Web applications can create added value for a company in many different ways. These can be implemented directly on the public facing website for the end customer, in a mobile app, within the company for internal communications or to work with external partners. As a web development company, Pacific Codeline is happy to advise and assist you in moving to or improving your current web applications.

API Development

Modern software development based on microservices and containers use APIs as an innovative solution to reduce the complexity of their entire architectures, as only an API interface can enable collaboration between the individual application units.
