Web Development

Website development is the invisible twin to Web Design when creating a website. Web development involves the coding, construction and building of the electronic framework of the site that is critical to the site’s performance and success. A healthy platform is critical to this process. We build your website using one of the two best Open Source platforms in the industry. Please inquire about our platforms when getting your website designed so that we are able to meet your requirements.

We develop websites using Joomla CMS, which is the platform of choice for thousands of Companies, Organizations and Governments.  Some examples are United Nations, iHOP, Porsche, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, and Harvard, Princeton and Yale. Joomla is preferred by both large and small organizations because of its almost unlimited features and components, scalability, ease of use and cost effectiveness. Some websites using Joomla that receive over half a million unique page views per month are: Latvia (the country’s official site), Nikon Instruments, Toshiba (Greece), Olympus (Australia), English National Ballet (England), Jetstar (owned by Quantas), IT Wire (most popular IT site in Australia), Burger King (promos), Mitsubishi (Venezuela and Poland) and many, many more. This goes to show that Joomla CMS can handle small and large website solutions for you and your business.

The other platform that we strongly recommend is WordPress CMS which is the most Search Engine Friendly platform available today. Although originating as a blogging platform, it has now evolved to become a powerful alternative for developers all over the world. Of course if your website requires more features and components, this might not be the right choice for you. Let us know what your website requires beforehand and we can customize your online presence. WordPress is easily the best search engine friendly platform, presupposing that you know how to write your robots.txt to accommodate the search engines.

What we do
