Winter Projects - Update
Winter in a fly shop is probably similar to any seasonal business in that it the time of year to try to fix the issues of the previous year and better prepare for the upcoming season. This winter has been especially busy around here as we have completely upgraded our point of sale database. Countless hours of staring into excel files is the best way to describe the journey. Also, we're having the website redesigned - which has turned into a much bigger project than we ever imagined - and will be up live by the end of Feb at the latest (I've been going on for awhile about this now and once it's live you'll understand why it's taken so long!). Guide trip bookings are looking better than we have ever seen, which has resulted in a "massive" restructuring of how we do things "in-house" in terms of reservations and scheduling. And, there is always the e-commerce site which needs more tinkering than one would ever imagine - but it's a big part of our business so a necessary evil.
