Project Overview

The Fila franchise in the Philippines hired us to create a brand new website for them, which would focus on their sponsored events, existing and new product lines as well as an easy to use store locator function which would allow customers to locate their nearest store and provide a map, address and contact details.


Creating a store locator in a country where google maps is far from accurate and many roads have different names was quite challenging. We compiled a list of all stores and checked which stores had addresses that google did not recognize, which we then obtained the longitude and latitude of the store from a staff member using the GPS function on their phone. This allowed us to build an accurate batch of data which could be used to locate the closest store to any given city, as well as the closest store based on the customers current location.
