Challenges

What challenges arose during the project?

We learned by fire with the non-digital portion of this project.

Building out a technologically advanced trailer, pricing it, getting satellite installed. We had to do our research as we went.

Technical

What was the technical approach to the project?

We chose Shopify to be the crux Country Shore's retail and marketing platform.

We liked that it was based on Ruby on Rails and had a larger community.

Also, it supports E-commerce and POS out of the box.

Management

What was the project management approach to the project?

We took an Agile Scrum approach to the project with one-week iterations and an IPM each week to demonstrate our progress.

We alternated frequently between research and development sprints and moved forward until launch day.

Lessons

What did you learn from working on this project?

We have helped many companies start from nothing, but this was our first retail company in which we saw nearly all of the initial setup and build-out.

This project was also hardware intensive as we had to configure a huge conversion trailer to be equipped with the necessary connectivity and requirements to operate a full store on wheels.

Benefits

How did this project benefit the client?

Today Country Shore is one of the largest lifestyle brands for outdoor enthusiasts with nearly a half-million social media followers.

Why Gunner?

Why was Gunner selected for this project?

Gunner Technology was the only company with the technical and marketing expertise required to launch a brand from scratch.

Also, we started our engagement with Country Shore on a pure equity basis, which no one else could do.
