Revolutionizing the irrigation industry

Weathermatic has been serving landscape professionals for more than sixty years and has a full line of controllers, weather stations, valves, rotors, sprays and nozzles. Their products have been installed in more than 70 countries on properties like the U.S. Capitol Building, Buckingham Palace and the College Football Hall of Fame.

Weathermatic is also the world's leading provider of Smart Irrigation Controllers with more than 200,000 controllers installed around the world. This smart control platform is at the heart of our new SmartLink Network - the intelligent, affordable, web-based landscape irrigation solution.

Weathermatic turned to WWC to design and develop a native iOS application for iPhone and iPad that allows landscape contractors and home owners the ability to manage their irrigation systems from the palm of their hand.

The iOS application sends and receives data using Weathermatics RESTful Api. WWC developed an Android application, which released fall of 2013.

Living Water International's iOS & Android App helps donors stay committed.

LWI is an implementer of participatory, community-based water solutions in developing nations. In its 20-year history, LWI has completed over 10,000 community water projects in 30 countries, which provide safe, clean water to 11.5 million people every day.

Whole Wheat Creative has worked with Living Water International for over 10 years. Beginning with design and implementation of the Living Water visual brand, which is now recognized around the world, WWC has created several generations of award-winning websites for the ministry. Living Water depends on its website to serve as its primary communication tool as well as its primary online-giving system.

The unique mobile H2O App is one of the current projects being developed by WWC for Living Water. The H20 Project is a simple but powerful campaign. Give up coffee, soda, etc. for two weeks and just drink water. Donate the money you would have spent on the drinks to help Living Water provide clean, safe water for the thirsty.

The H2O App, developed for iOS and Android, allows participants to set and track their individual campaign goals. The H2O App also gives participants the ability to establish fund-raising groups.

WWC is currently working with the talented staff at Living Water in developing the next generation of the Living Water International website and fundraising system. Both are due to launch in 2013.

Camp Ozark

Camp Ozark Slide 1 Camp Ozark Slide 2 Camp Ozark Slide 3 Camp Ozark Slide 4

Incomparable Camp Ozark gets an incomparable new website.

Camp Ozark is a popular Christian camp located in Arkansas' Ouachita Mountains where each summer 4,200 kids enjoy 120 different camp activities. Camp Ozark is committed to providing a summer camp experience which positively impacts the lives of their campers.

Utilizing new photography and new copy, Whole Wheat Creative redesigned and developed Camp Ozark's website with the goal of making the website just as much fun as the camp itself.

A main feature of the site is its interactive map. It was created using aerial photography and includes tons photos and videos that link directly to the interactive activity selection section of the site.

Another industry-leading feature is the website's unique online merchandise store and photo ordering system. Both systems were created and developed in WWC's Tier-1 lab and designed to connect with Camp Ozark's existing databases and accounting system.

The camper registration system was also completely redesigned by Whole Wheat Creative to present a more intuitive experience for both the guest user and the Camp Ozark administrators.

The Camp Ozark mission is to invest fully in each individual child as if they are the only child at Camp Ozark. Perhaps the fact that the Camp Ozark website has been featured on many popular website galleries and has been recognized by the industry with a Gold District Addy and a Silver Regional Addy is a testament that WWC strives to follow the same mission with each of our clients and their projects.

Mike Montes

Internet Marketing Strategist

Most SEA/SEO Internet marketing programs begin with a strategy, a plan and an "On" switch. Then "let it roll." Perhaps you're provided analytics at the end of each each month or each quarter and then have the opportunity to make adjustments. But, that is not what Mike does. Mike has worked with Internet marketing strategies for over eight years. He graduated at the top of his class from Florida State with a degree in Marketing and International Business and he is Google certified. He directs his smarts towards providing analysis, not analytics, of your website's search engine presence and real recommendations to achieve even greater performance. Through his day-to-day management of the WWC SmartOpt accounts, his careful attention to detail, and working closely with our clients, he ensures SmartOpt consistently achieves top Search Engine Advertising and Search Engine Optimization results on their behalf.

When not in front of a computer Mike focuses on quality time with his two children which includes: going to movies, camping, swimming and learning the finer points of fishing. Mike is also an avid collector and marketer of sports memorabilia for all sports.
