On August 26th, SpringLocker.com launched live to the world. The brainchild of founder and avid outdoor enthusiast, Dan Milligan, the site allows users to find outdoor gear and activities recommended by people they know and trust including friends, professionals and other users. Users create their own team of friends and pros to see the latest items added to their SpringLockers. The site blends qualities of social networks and product recommendation sites in a unique way.

BlueChannel custom programmed the site on the Laravel PHP framework. Site requirements included multi-tiered user management, sophisticated search and sort capabilities, multiple means of communication between users and other users as well as admin notifications, easy fetch of product information from leading outdoor gear sites, automated product feeds, customizable user settings, commenting, tie-in with Google Analytics and custom reports on activity and link integrity, affiliate link tracking, tie-in with third-party email campaign programs, and responsive layout/design for usability across browser types, operating systems and devices.

We here wish Dan the best of luck in his new endeavor! To learn more about SpringLocker, visit http://springlocker.com/about and check out the short video overview. Or, watch it here:
