When providing web design solutions, we take several factors into account.
Initially, we develop predominantly in PHP paired with MySQL databases. This confers advantages to our clients, namely cost and portability.
Compared to other web design and development technologies the hourly cost of PHP developers is far more competative than ASP developers for example without any loss of functionality.
These technologies are open source, which means the options to interface with other systems you may operate within your business is much simpler than proprietry, in house designed systems.
As we use open source systems that are readily available, there is plenty of expertise in the community. This means that your site is portable should you require to move or collaborate with other web developers. We mention this as we know some of our clients have been locked into unsatisfactory solutions and have found it difficult to move. Our systems do not lock you into us.
We provide most of our Content Managed websites using Drupal, however we have experience in Wordpress, Joomla, CMS Made Simple, Zen Cart, PHPBB and Magento. Each have their strengths from ease of use to e commerce and we will advise as to what in our experience suits you best.
