New Website for Caparol – Collaboration with VimleWebb

A few weeks back we launched a new website for Caparol, a paint manufacturer (if that’s the English term…) here in Sweden. This was done in collaboration with VimleWebb who we work a lot with.

Our part in this project was to help make parts of the site easier to update by building custom functionality to extend upon the core WordPress feature-set.

Store Locator

Part of what Caparol wanted was a store locator where they could easily insert new resellers where buyers could find their paint. This store locator had to be easily updatable so we decided to utilize the custom post types in WordPress to essentially build a store display.

By integrating this with the Google Maps API, we were able to create a user friendly page for finding the store nearest to the customer location, at any given time.
