Lululemon Image

Lululemon

Lululemon is a world leader in athletic and yoga wear. Lululemon needed a solution to track employees’ time on a daily basis at each store. To this end, Filmrobot created WebTime, an online time and reporting system for Lululemon in the retail sector.


We designed a web-based system that would allow managers and employees to enter the time they worked on a daily basis and have it reconciled

at the corporate offices on a weekly basis. By enabling the staff to enter their own data, the solution alleviated hours of paper reconciliation and tracking by providing a custom interface that works directly with their payroll system. WebTime provided them with easier scheduling and more accurate financial records.

Great Canadian Van Lines Image

Great Canadian Van Lines

Great Canadian Van Lines is one of the largest moving companies operating in Vancouver, providing service throughout Canada and the United States for over 25 years. GCVL maintains an image of affordable pricing, fast delivery, and trustworthiness, providing insurance for local and long distance moves.


To maintain this image, Filmrobot worked closely with Great Canadian Van Lines to

create Hercules Move Management System, a CMS that streamlines their entire business process. Using Hercules, GCVL can follow up on leads, sending an estimated cost and move timeline to the customer.


Hercules then streamlines the process of registering, scheduling, weighing, and paying for the move. By simplifying the moving process and improving accuracy, Hercules has helped GCVL take on significantly more customers than ever before.

Agencyclick Image

Agencyclick

AgencyClick is a web application that enables casting professionals and agents to manage daily availability and rapidly changing on-set engagements for actors and background performers in a truly collaborative process. Originally developed in 2000, AgencyClick evolved from the ground-breaking Actionextra.com site. As the capabilities of websites rapidly advanced, AgencyClick kept pace by

introducing productivity-enhancing features including a real-time availability calendar and an optional personal web page upgrade for performers.

Over the past sixteen-plus years,


AgencyClick has helped thousands of actors get roles in hundreds of movies and TV shows. It’s a powerful example of the technological advantages that can be gained by enabling your customers to manage and schedule their employees and colleagues in a timely manner.

Nestbuilder Image

Nestbuilder

NestBuilder is a mobile and web-based real estate resource that makes finding a home easy and enjoyable by providing home buyers, renters, and sellers the tools they need to make informed decisions about where to live. With over 1 million active listings, NestBuilder has become one of the largest real estate resources worldwide.


Easily one of our largest projects to date, Filmrobot was tasked with

building NestBuilder from the ground up. This project had to include a customer-facing web portal as well as mobile apps for both Android and iOS.


Filmrobot also had to design and deliver a database infrastructure that could check and update millions of listings on a daily basis. This was no easy task, especially with the wealth of videos, photos, and listing data to handle, but we pulled it off. The resulting site is fast, functional, and user-friendly.
