Fred Figglehorn ∞
You're probably saying the same thing we said when we were handed this project: "Fred Figglehorn? What?"
Truth is, Fred Figglehorn is the doppelganger of teenage actor Lucas Cruikshank who plays a hyperactive child in a popular video series that is generating a six-figure income and some Big Media interest. This 15 year old's videos have been watched over 15,500 times, his subscriber-base is closing in on 3/4 of a million people, and he's had almost 18 million channel views; with YouTube statistics like this, maybe you too could make the headlines with news agencies like CNN, BusinessWeek, LA Times, and CNET!
SourceGas, the former retail division of Kinder Morgan, is a leading supplier and distributor of natural gas products to residential, business and agricultural customers in Colorado, Nebraska and Wyoming.
When they decided to make their split from KM, they chose Denver-based PGM Integrated to assist in their branding and broadcast production campaign. Part of what PGM was tasked with was the ground-up build of a completely fresh corporate website for this new company. PGM approached me [through our sole-source partnership at the time] with providing this entire solution, and we worked hand in hand (even face-to-face in some cases) with the staff at PGM and SourceGas to provide exactly the solution they required.

This project covered it all -- rich meta-data, clean separation of content and presentation, an intuitive web-based interface for administration, complete e-commerce support, a career portal, news & event modules, global site search, user account management, multi-user authoring with permissions, the list goes on. And, to support the site: a clustered LAMP environment, round-robin load balancing, real-time sync, and floating IP automatic fail-over.

The goal of this project was to develop a product, around the requirements of the Colorado BMA chapter and how they operate, that could be duplicated for other chapters, with features meeting the exact specifications of BMA. Below is a generalized list containing some of the top features:
- Event registration system with joint registrations for up to five additional people
- Banner advertising system with sponsorship placement purchasing and template control for multiple banner sizes and configurations
- E-commerce store, tied into Authorize.net for merchant processing

- WYSIWYG, friendly Word-like editor for content editing with point-and-click resource browser for linking to managed resource files (above)
HyperIDX is a robust stand-in for the common, out-dated public MLS solution provided to REALTORS® by their local [and state] organizations. HyperIDX is available for all real estate professionals, REALTORS® or not. Aside from visual appeal, what radically distinguishes HyperIDX from most other MLS solutions is that as a subscriber of HyperIDX service, your website can handle more than just MLS data — you can also manage and display your own exclusive projects such as land & development and pre-construction that normally wouldn't be found on an MLS.
HyperIDX started as a proof of concept for my work with The Realty Group. The buisiness model of The Realty Group wasn't the standard "we sell houses" that most real estate businesses follow. Thus, a custom system was charted and built for their website. I realized after building this system that many other businesses [and even independent REALTORS® working on their own] could benefit and dramatically improve their ROI by using a system like this in place of the downtrodden framed MLS wanna-be that most real estate websites use. So, here it is, standardized, fully functioning and includes a developer API for those who want to get down-and-dirty with custom integration.
