Custom website design and development

Web design is what spurred us to open our doors in 2004 and it is still our core business activity. Websites and web design have changed a great deal in the last decade, and keeping up with the latest options is a big part of what we do.

Our skills and experience in business analysis, coupled with a genuine interest in what our clients do, enable us to ask deeper questions that lead to effective website strategies, planning, design and architecture.

Most of our websites are custom designed, and range from small brochure sites to large, content rich and database driven websites and everything in between. We have even managed third party suppliers when a client has had an existing relationship with a web developer but needed our expertise.

Responsive web design, bilingual web design, content management systems, ecommerce solutions, news feeds, social media integration and dynamic content - we have done and can do it all. We also offer Wordpress design and theme customization services.

Database design and development

We love data and what can be learned from it. On-line, off-line or a combination of the two, we can help you collect, organize, review, make sense of and use your data to its full advantage.

Our services encompass database design, data migration, data driven websites and more.

Content development...also known as writing and editing

Whatever your business or activity, we'll take the cue from what you do best and craft the messages and text that your site requires. We carefully proofread every word, paragraph and page so that the final product is letter (and link) perfect.

Many clients opt to develop their own content, but still need guidance with page lengths and writing for the web. We offer detailed guidance and easy to use templates that make developing your own content easier.

We also offer technical writing services; our technical writer specializes in engineering and telecommunications industries.

Website content management...also known as website maintenance
