Fluid Coffee Bar in downtown Denver bills itself as a “sophisticated, innovative and stimulating place to meet, work and relax.” The coffee shop provides flexible meeting space that companies, nonprofits, community groups – you name it – can rent by the hour. Working on a short deadline and tight budget, Red27 built the digital linchpin of Fluid Meeting Spaces’s offering: an online calendaring system that lets customers reserve meeting space and share meeting details.

We integrated the SuperSaas calendaring system into the site, which was built using Ruby on Rails. Because of our skilled, deep API integration of both digital platforms, Fluid Meeting Space customers don’t need to log in to multiple systems to review space availability, reserve meeting times, pay rental fees or share event details on Twitter, Facebook or via email. It’s also worth noting that the site’s content is built on the Refinery content management system, allowing Fluid Coffee Bar and the site’s designer, Hero Design Studio, to add and edit content and view information about the site’s users.

This site is in a great position to grow as the needs of its users change and increase.

You Rocked it! Huge success with the proof of concept. Client loved it and the possibilities it provides!
—Dan, CEO, Rentbits

We worked with Dusty Candland of Red27 Consulting for about 1.5 months on a project supporting development of a Java-based Web service using the Play! Framework. Dusty was very easy to work with. During and after the project's execution, he and Red27 were readily available to answer questions and help us fix bugs. Another important aspect of the consulting we did with Red27 was our need for a developer who understood how quickly things move and can change in a startup environment. Dusty did a great job of filling that role. He quickly adapted to multiple revisions of the project's specifications and integrated his work with our existing codebase. Omniar would choose to work with Red27 again.

It was a pleasure working with Dusty Candland of Red27 Consulting on fluidmeetingspaces.com. Being a small business it was critical that the project be completed on time and within our budget, Red27 helped make this happen while staying true to the vision and specifications of the project. Dusty was very responsive during the project and remains very responsive even after project completion. I always had a comfort level with Dusty that the projects success was as important to him as it was to me and the rest of our team.
