A Website to Shop Generously
We developed an ecommerce website with Ruby on Rails for a Bay Area gift economy startup.
Givegoods.org is the brainchild of Sillicon Valley social entrepreneur Christopher Ward. It is an online donation service where people can give to the charity of their choice and, in return, receive a reward. Ward approached BVision to help him make his idea a reality and have a live beta of the service as soon as possible.
We developed the initial prototype of Givegoods.org in about 8 weeks using Ruby on Rails, working hand in hand with the client to respond quickly to the feedback he received on the work in progress. After another 6 week round of feature enhancements, the site was launched and taking orders without a hitch.

“I know we're one long week away from "code complete" but I wanted to say MANY THANKS for your great work, velocity, precision and consideration. With each passing month I feel more confident in the capacity of this team. I'm looking forward to a great partnership this year between Givegoods and BVision. Once again, thank you!” - Christopher Grant Ward, CEO, Givegoods.
