Zip’s Truck Equipment, one of the nation’s largest outfitters of tow trucks, towing equipment, and accessories, has trusted Aptera again and again to help keep their eCommerce website updated and optimized.

The Aptera team has also helped Zip’s optimize their checkout process and consulted on technical search engine optimization (SEO) for their entire site to help attract more new customers.

The Papers is a publisher of 25 weekly and monthly newspapers and magazines in Northern Indiana. They found Aptera at a trying time for them—the Sitefinity website for their Auto & RV publication was down and they were urgently looking for a Sitefinity partner to fix it. Our team stepped in right away and worked through the night to bring the website back up.
We’ve had a close partnership with The Papers, particularly the Auto & RV publication, ever since. The Aptera team has helped The Papers devise a three-phase project to help technologically advance their business. The first phase was implementing business intelligence solutions and building a data dashboard so they could easily see website analytics. Having this data allows their sales staff to prove the value of the publication to potential advertisers with real numbers.
The second phase included development of custom web software to better equip the ad composers at Auto & RV to populate the website. Recently we finished phase three, which involved a complete website re-design for Autorv.com, including UX design and web development and implementation.
An Aptera partner for over five years, Nucor Buildings Group is

work with Aptera to create a custom quoting system, as well as a mobile app,
ShakeoutPro, that streamlines work on jobsites by digitizing records, models

Nucor year-round. Nucor turns to us time and time again to provide high quality,
skilled people to collaborate with their team.
After all our time together, our key team members intimately understand Nucor’s
business and needs.
Tenet Health, one of the largest networks of healthcare providers in the country, chose Aptera as a trusted partner for website implementation and mobile app development. The team at Aptera implemented redesigns of not only several network hospital sites, but also for the Tenet Health corporate website, the face of their brand.
In addition to website implementation, the Aptera team also worked with Tenet Health’s talented in-house developers to create a mobile app that provides quick consultations with a doctor, right through the app. The development of this app required many special considerations including managing personal data, linking with pharmacies, and integrating Skype for Business, which was a new tool at the time. The ingenious integration of Skype for Business within the app even got Tenet Health recognized at the Microsoft Build Conference that year.

Buckman, a global chemistry company, has turned to Aptera many times to help them streamline their business data into actionable information. One example is Buckman’s behavior-based safety (BBS) reports. Observed employee safety behavior is captured directly from shop floors in plants and labs around the world and efficiently stored in the Azure cloud. Armed with this historical data and a simple, intuitive tool like Microsoft’s Power BI, Buckman can quickly identify patterns and address safety issues, leading to a better, safer working environment and reduced costs.
Aptera has also helped Buckman get more out of their data, helping produce deeper, more informative reports for customer satisfaction surveys and yearly plant audits.

Latham is North America’s leading manufacturer of in-ground, residential fiberglass pools, swimming pool autocovers, safety covers, and vinyl pool liners. They work with thousands of dealers across the country and were looking to bring in more leads to hand off to their Dealer Network.

To help Latham reach new audiences, we’ve also consulted on their PPC advertising campaigns and their social media strategies, including introducing them to new social platforms like Houzz.
For the past six years, Aptera has been an important partner for Dunavant, a global logistics and transportation company. Most logistics companies rely on fluid, timely data transfers to communicate shipment information between hubs and shippers and receivers. To reduce errors caused by manual steps and to improve overall efficiency and reliability with Dunavant’s B2B communications, Aptera created a robust EDI processing solution based on Microsoft’s BizTalk platform. This includes the movement and transformation of important messages such as 214 shipment status, as well as 204 and 210 files, which communicate shipment information requests and freight details and invoices, respectively.
Aptera maintains an ongoing relationship with Dunavant, expanding their EDI to new shipping centers.
For more than five years, Aptera has been partnering with Sirva, a worldwide moving and relocation company, to implement re-designs of their corporate website as well as those for three of their main brands. The Sirva corporate site is a multi-site instance with 16 regional sites in addition to their main, United States English site.
Aptera implemented website re-designs for both the Allied Van Lines and the North American Van Lines websites. The new sites increased page load speed and featured custom lead-generation forms created by the Aptera team. The Allied Van Lines website was even recognized as Sitefinity Site of the Year in 2016 in the Transportation Category!
We’ve also worked with Sirva’s portable storage and moving brand, Smartbox. For this project, the Aptera team implemented a redesign of the Smartbox website in Sitefinity to be responsive, created a custom quote form, and integrated with Eloqua and Google Analytics.

The Aptera team worked closely with the internal IT team at Voyager Sopris Learning to implement automated deployment and continuous integration.
With their new website, Voyager Sopris Learning is now better equipped to market their products and services throughout the school year.

Four years ago, Red Gold had a single website with sections for each of their tomato brands, but was wanting to shift to a more targeted marketing approach. To help achieve that goal, the Aptera team developed and implemented four new websites for Red Gold; one for corporate and one for each of their three biggest regional brands of canned tomatoes: Red Gold, Tuttorosso, and Redpack. Each site was recognized with the Sitefinity Site of the Year Award the year it was released.
A key feature of each of Red Gold’s brand websites is the recipe indexes. We worked closely with the team at Red Gold to help break out their large collection of recipes into searchable, optimized recipe libraries.
In addition to their main sites, the Aptera team also developed a few microsites that live within the existing website, including one for Red Gold’s annual Crush Hunger campaign that seeks to end hunger in America.
Aptera continues to work closely with Red Gold on website updates and maintenance, helping Red Gold secure their position as technology leaders in their industry.
When Boyds, a maker and retailer of hardwood gunstocks, was looking for a partner to implement their eCommerce website redesign and to build the site’s central new feature, a custom gunstock product configurator, they turned to Aptera. Using our agile development method, the Aptera team implemented Boyds’ updated Sitefinity website and built their gunstock customizer tool. Our team also helped Boyds integrate their ERP system with the Sitefinity CMS and created a digital marketing strategy including building pillar pages and launching the Boyds Blog.
The new website and product configurator have opened doors for Boyds to sell more custom product and the ERP integration ensures that their system will remain stable through CMS upgrades.
The Aptera team continues to work with Boyds to support ongoing development.
