The Go Ape solution was initially designed and built by another Sitecore partner. Nemetos was assigned in 2017 to take over the technical development of the site and to develop new features to support the growth of the online business, specifically the online booking and commerce features. Go Ape wanted to optimism the site to improve mobile performance and integrate a quick booking bar to allow users to book quickly from any page. Each location offers a unique combination of activities for specific age groups and users are able to book up to 13 months in advance. They also wanted to add new products - such as their NETs activities for younger children and new content components to the site. There were infrastructure issues, mainly related to the random outage of the site and cost of hosting. We worked closely with Rackspace to implement a more cost efficient and robust setup and to allow us to establish Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment.
