Picture of a penOur Content Management Systems (CMS) allow editing of the pages in a client's site to be performed by the client, without the need for any technical skills. The CMS will allow you to maintain any number of pages each of which may contain any number of content elements such as text, headings, images, flash, videos & downloadable files.

The CMS uses a series of pre-defined layouts that are used to create different layouts for content items such as news features and other items of content. To create a page, you simply choose different layouts depending on the content you wish to add. These layouts may be designed to display any combination of the content elements. A page may contain just one layout or may contain many, thus creating an infinite range of page styles. Adding content is as simple as filling out a form.

The benefit of the pre-defined layouts system is that these are designed by a professional web designer ensuring the end visual result is professional and it is consistent, regardless of who in the client's organisation performs the update, as the user only enters the text and the formatting is done automatically by the CMS and the layouts. The CMS will check that all relevant information has been supplied before accepting the content, thus ensuring the quality of the site.

The CMS is scalable without any upgrades, meaning you can grow your site from a just a few pages to thousands of pages. And it is flexible too, it provides more than just a means of adding content, it creates a fully interactive site that is easy to create and manage with minimal staff training.

  • Banner ads can be added to some or all areas of your site, creating revenue streams.

It's powerful to handle your growing needs

Our sites and applications are built to handle high loads created by large volumes of visitors and complex transactions. And built to store large amounts of data while maintaining high levels of performance.

As your business grows the demands placed on your site grow too. Some sites just can't cope with this, but ones built by us can!

Customers find it easy to use

Our sites are designed for ease of use by your customers so they can quickly find the information or products they need.

We do this with clear layouts and intuitive navigation, avoiding gimmicky functions that only serve to confuse rather then enhance.

You find it easy to manage

We understand that your time is valuable, so we design our sites with easy to use yet powerful back office tools that allow you to manage your site quickly and with minimal training requirements.

Comprehensive real time reporting keeps you on target to meet your business goals.

It's fast - no waiting customers

Do you keep your customers waiting for you to answer the phone? Or course not, so why make them wait for your site to load?

Our sites are designed with speed in mind, from the database that powers them to the graphics on the site, to the world class hosting, everything is optimised to give your customers the fast response they expect.

It's secure, protecting you and your customers

With over 10 years experience developing web applications we know how to keep your critical data and customer details secure and fully backed up.

We cover all aspects of security, from safely processing credit card payments to resisting hacker and virus attacks, you can rest assured your most valuable assets are in safe hands.

It's reliable - always there for you and your customers

How often have you been to a site to find it's down, or not working properly? And did you go back there again? Probably not.

We understand that, to use a cliché, you only get one chance to make a first impression. That's why our servers are monitored 24/7 and site uptime exceeds 99.8%.

It's built on time, on budget

Before we start a project we agree a fixed budget and fixed time scale with the client, and then stick to it.

Project milestones are set and you get to see progress as it happens, getting the chance to give your feedback at each stage, ensuring you end up with exactly what you need, when you need it and delivering value for money.

It's tailor made for your needs

Which makes more sense? Having the way you do business dictated by an off the shelf software package, or, a tailor made application designed to complement your business?

Because we do all of our development in-house we can create a solution that fits your business exactly. And because of this, the solution is flexible, changing as your business changes.
