Buink’s founder, Ben Buie, started developing websites in 2006 when he taught himself to code while building MyNiceTie. Over the years he has continued to learn while building many other web assets for clients including Reebok, Sherwin Williams, Brunton, Winter Park, and others as well as for his own startups.
The following posts are development projects that make up Buink's work portfolio:
At the same time we were fixing up this client’s legacy app, we took over the rebuild of their app from a previous developer. As their business evolved, they’ve been able to narrow down what their customer really needs and they wanted to simplify the interface to make it easier to onboard and service new Read More >>
We continue to do lots of work for other bigger agencies. This work is mostly front-end, pixel perfect pages in Shopify and WordPress. Some of the work is adding structured data to make it easier for search engines to understand what a page represents. We’ve also integrated with third party providers like Klaviyo. In addition, Read More >>
One of the hardest things about our job is when someone comes to us with an existing codebase and asks what it would cost to fix all the bugs. This is challenging because we have to understand the codebase (which are usually thousands of lines long), understand the problems (which are pages and pages of Read More >>
If code is online, it needs ongoing maintenance. We continue to maintain and make changes to an existing web application in an effort to push the site to a public launch. There are lots of reasons why a site may not make it to a public launch (budget, market, marketing, founders, investor, etc.) but our Read More >>
Large companies with a lot of inventory for sale (or rent) typically manage that inventory with an ERP system (enterprise resource planning). These systems make it difficult to put real-time information in the hands of consumers through a web interface. But getting this information in the hands of consumers is very profitable. We helped this Read More >>
We originally quoted this project as a separate web application and a website working hand in hand. Our default suite of technologies would have been the most robust solution, but the client wanted to save money at first because of the startup nature of this company. We pivoted and presented a solution to the client Read More >>
We implemented a reskin for another agency. We had a very tight timeline but we were able to keep our client happy. The work was pixel perfect and looked great. The project never made it to production because of some issues with the agencies’ client, but it wasn’t due to our efforts. A lot of Read More >>
We continued to do work for a legal firm out of Utah. We don’t often advertise that we do SEO, but we’re a very affordable alternative to companies who specialize in it. Even though SEO isn’t our focus, we’re able to get some amazing results. On this project we setup reporting and metrics to track Read More >>

I reached out to Buink after finding Ben’s name in a local developer/consultant listing in 2017, and I have to say, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with Buink. Ben consistently understands not just the development task laid in front of him but the business application behind the task. I’ve... never felt more comfortable with a development team than I do with Buink. I truly feel Ben and his team are integral partners in the success of my business.read more

Buink saved my company's bacon at a very critical moment during my company's evolution. With almost no warning we had found ourselves stranded without any dev support, even though we had hundreds of users from big brands every day logging into our application and relying on things to keep working.... We couldn't afford to have system failures, and I was amazed at—and will be forever grateful for—the way the Buink team stepped in and calmly assumed control of the craft. We and our clients were safe in their expert hands from that moment forward. I whole-heartedly recommend the quality of their work and the dedicated and ethical leadership they continually provide.read more

I could not recommend Buink Web Development more highly. Ben and his team have recently developed a budgeting app for me (both web and IOS). I have had the opportunity of working with them for over a year and I am extremely happy with the results.I would say that the biggest plus for me is that I... trust Ben completely. From the very first, Ben has helped me make decisions that were in the best interest of my company. I have never felt like he is taking advantage of me. Ben does his best to keep the whole process very open and upfront. I have really appreciated that.I tell people all the time that I love my developers. And I do. I'm very happy that I chose to use Buink to develop my apps. It was the best business decision I could have made.If you are looking for someone to develop a website or app, I strongly suggest choosing Buink Web Development. They are fantastic!Marilyn Ference, President, Defend Your Money, LLCread more
