Everyone has been to a convenience store at least once in their life.  Ever wonder how those store owners decide which products to carry in the store?  That is where Convenience Store Decisions, a monthly periodical, comes into play.  CSD helps advertisers penetrate the appealing multi-unit c-store market, connecting their brands and products with executive level and category decision makers.

Harbor Communications engaged E-Moxie to redevelop their existing WordPress platform, so they were able to achieve a secure mobile responsive site, a more robust theme which was magazine/periodical focused and to integrate their Ad Delivery Network, NUI Media.

Working with their senior editors and management team, E-Moxie was able to determine two custom WordPress plugins were needed to showcase some of their offerings.

E-Moxie created a Rack Prices plugin which allowed an Excel file which was automatically emailed to be ingested and processed by the website.  The data was then displayed on the frontend of the websites for users to be able to see the latest prices of gasoline and diesel fuel.  E-Moxie also developed another custom WordPress plugin which allowed for the sorting of the top 111 convenience store chains by the number of stores each chain has.  This data is sortable, filterable and exportable for frontend users.

Being this site is crucial to their digital offerings, Harbor Communications enlisted E-Moxie to develop a rock-solid cloud infrastructure built on top of Amazon Web Services.  E-Moxie’s own dedicated Amazon product allowed for a secure, reliable and fast environment which is able to scale with any of today’s traffic conditions.
