What We Do Really Well
Websites change and evolve fast every day and our experts can help you rediscover the Web. We believe that well designed websites need to do more than look pretty, your website needs to add measurable value to your business and profitability.
The software running your business should work with you to be more productive. All too often several software systems are used to run a business and bog down production. We can solve these production woes with carefully created system integration or custom software.
Things We Are Proud to Brag About
Internet Framework for Websites
Prior to the growth of web projects and tools available on the Internet, we started development of our own framework built on PHP and MySQL to create a fast and easy to use, as well as customizable environment for deploying client websites and custom solutions. Today we utilize the many tools and libraries commercially available, but every now and then we still draw from our past framework.
Web Based Application for Tracking Boat Loans
A custom application was created for brokering boat loans. The application was used to enter and track leads, prepare and create settlements, as well as present performance reports.
Managing Offsite Hardcopy File Storage
A simple web based system enabling office personnel to manage the physical boxes and inserted indexes that have been sent to the warehouse for storage, held in the office, and destroyed. The system tracks the history of each box and index logged, from creation to destruction.
Internet System for Construction Project Bidding
A custom system created on our PHP framework and hosted on one of our LAMP servers. The system enabled contractors to connect and view architectural plans, as well as other supplemental documents and construction “take-offs” for project bidding. The system managed the projects and all associated documents for the project, limiting each contractor's access based on the geographic areas of the project and their area of expertise. The system automatically alerted the contractors to changes in projects as well as when new projects are available.
System for Reporting and Managing Work-In-Progress
Created for completing weekly status reports based on employees work-in-progress (WIP). The system automatically delivers reports to management upon completion. Developed using our PHP framework and Python scripts, the solution was designed to send email alerts to staff to enter their report by the deadline, and if they failed to submit a report then automatically sign them out of the entire network. Signing back into the network forced the offender to complete the report. Once the report was submitted, access to the network was regained and the infringement logged.
CD for Indexing and Searching PDF Journals
A completely self-contained application created to run from a CD inserted into the CD-ROM drive of a Windows PC. The application launched an instance of the Apache web server and served HTML files designed to categorize PDF archives. The application was fully indexed and searchable by running scripts that executed from the CD, which displayed the search results by relevancy of the search criteria entered.
and the list goes on...
After 21 years we have worked on many more projects than these, maybe yours can be next.
Rediscovering the Web
Let's Make You Successful
Need Your Site to do more? We work with you. It's your business and your website, we want to make sure that it works for you. We will not put you in a "box" nor force you to use a specific set of tools. Your website should be a reflection of your business and branding, but it should also be a call to action for your visitors. We will deliver a product that helps you do more.
Elegance Made Simple
Here's a little secret - elegant Web design no longer has to be expensive. Thousands of templates and themes are available today for as little as $25, so move beyond just look-n-feel, and design functionality. We will work with you to design a Website that matches your business and brand while providing a powerful User Interface that is not only attractive but intuitive to use.
What Can Your Website Do?
The true beauty of a website is within it's development. There are plenty of pretty websites on the Internet, but not nearly as many functional websites that drive business or increase productivity. We believe this is what separates the wheat from the chaff. With so many templates and themes available for designing websites, do you have someone that can develop a functional and powerful website that meets your business needs and expands your possibilities?
Support, Hosting, and More
Regardless of whether you need support or hosting for a website we built or one you already have, we can be as hands-on or hands-off as you need. We can work with you to manage your website by reporting site analytics, conducting search engine optimization (SEO), updating, adding enhancements, or any other management necessary to keep your website highly productive.

Keeping It Simple and Smart
It starts with you... Whether you are looking to build a business upon a new Internet service or need a simple one page website, we start with your needs and desires. We will listen and work with you to frame a solution that delivers you a valuable product to achieve your goals.
“Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.”
Solutions tend to evolve during their life-cycle and often have evolving requirements. Historically, this was referred to as "scope creep" and considered a bad thing for any project. We understand that changes are unavoidable and believe that these changes need to be embraced and not ignored, allowing the process to evolve will ultimately lead to a more refined, quality solution for your business.
“Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.”
In order to make the project successful, while properly managing and understanding changes, we work closely with you throughout the process. Our approach is not to collect a list of requirements only to then disappear, rather we work with you regularly throughout the process to establish milestones and frequent deliverables.
“Business people and developers must work together regularly throughout the project.”
Shorter timescales and more frequent deliverables enable us to adapt to changes and stay agile throughout the development process.
“Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.”
By providing releases on a shorter timescale enables you to become comfortable with certain functions throughout the entire development process. You not only become more comfortable with the solution, but can identify problems, issues, or changes that need to be addressed, ensuring a quality solution, while measuring our progress.
“Working software is the primary measure of progress.”
We take projects and break them down into simple segments no matter how complex the problem being solved. Following this approach allows us to greatly simplify the process and maximize our time while minimizing wasted time, ultimately delivering a high quality final product, which in the end, delivers you value.
“Simplicity • the art of maximizing the amount of work not done • is essential.”
