Give us a call to discuss your specific requirement and we can custom tailor a solution based on your budget, timeline and requirements.  Our main goal is to provide all the technical support you need so you can run your business more efficiently.

Content Management Systems: We mainly work with Content Management Systems (CMS), particularly Joomla, Drupal, WordPress and Omeka.   This is because these offer an easy to use environment for the end users providing a familiar platform for content creation.   A CMS provides consistent navigation and structure which makes the final product more professional to the site visitor.  In addition a CMS provides an incredible workflow management that is easy to understand and use.   All the data is centralized in a single database which is more efficient for backup and restore purposes.  In addition these frameworks provide shared resources, remote access, cross browser compatibility, high level of security and a strong Search Engine Optimization (SEO) core. 

Add-on Tools: With virtually thousands of possible website add-ons, our job is to help you define which add-ons will enhance your website and facilitate navigation by the end users.  We test, integrate and support add-ons for your site ranging from access and security to calendars, e-commerce, marketing, photo galleries, site management, communities and much more. 

Custom Tools: If for any reason existing add-ons are not available to support a specific function, our team of developers will custom write a module or plug-in for your website.  This is the case in many organization where specific business processes have evolved over time.  When it is difficult to change, we can integrate a custom tool to maintain the same level of efficiency without affecting overall productivity.  We can also implement a similar system and test pilot a small group of users if the final plan is complete migration.

Integrated customer databases: Weather you are migrating from an existing Customer relationship management system (CRM) or simply need to integrate your existing employee and customer database of users into the new web based Content Management System, we can provide the support to manage, control and verify the migration, data export and import. 

Search Engine Optimization: An important aspect of a website is that it is easily accessible by users looking for your products and/or services.   Besides the technical aspects of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) that we will carefully plan and implement, we also provide a thorough review of your final website, ensure your site is crawled by Google system, and integrate common webmaster guidelines to ensure your site is responsive, fast, and easily found through specific keywords.  In addition we'll complement your marketing campaign efforts by facilitating content for your landing pages.

Mobile Website Support: Nowadays it is crucial for websites to support mobile units.  For this reason all of our implementations are supported by mobile frameworks, such as Helix, Bootstrap, or Zen grid.  This helps website owners to reach the mobile audience which is critical for some Business-to-Customers (B2C) such as restaurants, bars, or other local retailers that rely on local shoppers. 

Security: No site should ever be left alone and this means that constant monitoring and security updates must be applied on a regular basis. From the hosting setup, to file permissions, our aim is to ensure the data integrity and safety of your web presence.  Some websites are inevitably hacked or defaced, therefore a proper contingency plan must be in place for backup and restore in case of a security failure.   Our aim is to prevent any attacks, but if they occur we should activate our backup plan followed by enhanced security.
