Premium Promotions Website Goes Live

Premium Promotions is a Galway based competitions website that specialises in agricultural and livestock competitions. The business existed for years on Shopify and eventually it outgrew the platform. Shopify did not allow for effective running of competitions and so the team at Premium Promotions had to do much manual work to run competitions on the platform.

They communicated their requirements to us and we created a lean mean competition running machine for them :). Some of the features include

  • Create ‘competition’ type products within WordPress
  • Competitions can have a start date, end date, max entries, min entries
  • Competitions are skill based – the entrant must answer a question correctly to partake. The system ensures this is the case
  • Each entrant is assigned a ticket number – and all entrants can be exported to excel to allow for a Facebook Live random draw
  • Payments are handled online with an online checkout
  • Various reports and dashboards are available on the backend

Essentially a lot of the manual tasks that the guys had to run on the old platform – are now automated and competitions will run a lot smoother. This is a classic example of ClearSoft making the web work for our customers.

Case Study – ToolCheck

Technologies Used

  • MVC .NET
  • MS SQL Server
  • AJAX
  • CSS3
  • Javascript
  • jQuery
  • Image Manipulation
  • PayPal Payments
  • Online Eventing & Alerting

Description is the brainchild of a Wicklow carpenter who has been the victim of tool theft in the past. He had a very simple but powerful idea for how best to combat this. The site is aimed at tradespeople who own valuable tools that are at risk of being stolen.

The central concept behind ToolCheck is to build up a comprehensive database of tools that people in the second hand market can query before purchasing. For example, let’s say Joe Soap is a carpenter and has a toolbox full of valuable tools – he can register on the site, sign up to a monthly subscription plan and then create his online toolbox by uploading serial numbers and images of his tools. Let’s say Joe’s tools are stolen after this point.

Meanwhile John Doe is in the market for a second hand drill and comes across a bargain at a local market. He can query the ToolCheck database (for free) before he buys and if the tool is found on the database – this will raise a flag. In our example, if John finds a match on Joe’s tool – Joe will be alerted and if John chooses to – he can initiate an email conversation with him. Police can also use the database to identify suspicious tools.
