We can provide a web solution to suit your requirements and your budget.

WordPress Websites

We build brochure websites and simpler web applications using WordPress, a popular and easy-to-use open source content management system. An extensive library of free and premium software plugins for WordPress is available, allowing the rapid addition of new capabilities to your site. We typically build sites using the powerful Toolset components, which considerably expand WordPress's capabilities.

Drupal Websites

We build more complex websites and web applications using Drupal, a powerful and comprehensive open source content management system that can easily scale as your business grows. There are thousands of pre-existing free software components for this platform which can be combined to implement almost anything that you might require of your site

E-commerce

We offer E-commerce options that integrate your web store seamlessly into your website. This ensures that it uses your site's branding, and that your site will receive search engine credit for your store's content.

Web Applications

You may require custom business functions or capabilities from your website. Here are some examples that we've provided to our clients:

  • event registration
  • college scholarship application/review system
  • custom databases, such as organization member profiles
  • different content and features for different site users
  • purchaseable levels of site resource access, with automatic renewal
  • flexible content categorization and searching
  • automated import/export of data from/to external databases
  • client-specified rule-based site behavior

Need custom functionality from your website? Ask us about how we can make it happen.

CiviCRM

Non-proft organizations can greatly benefit from a comprehensive approach to managing their contacts with their contact and donors, and a constituent relationship manager (CRM) provides the tools to make that possible. We work with CiviCRM, a popular free, open-source option that integrates directly with your Drupal or WordPress website. It's a modular system that provides a wide variety of features:

  • contact management
  • membership management
  • event management
  • contribution management
  • case management
  • grant management
  • bookkeeping integration
  • E-mail marketing
  • reporting

CiviCRM also supports a growing library of free extensions to add new functionality, such as volunteer management.

We can build a new website for you that includes CiviCRM, or add it to an existing Drupal or WordPress website.

Software Maintenance

All content management systems are software applications which requires periodic updates to maintain their security and proper function. We offer an inexpensive maintenance service to take care of it for you.

Conversions and Upgrades

If you have an existing website that you'd like to convert to a modern Drupal or WordPress site, we'd be happy to discuss that with you. We can also upgrade outdated or unmaintained Drupal or WordPress sites, or redesign them to be mobile-friendly. Contact us to find out more.

  • "I have very much enjoyed working with you -- appreciate your expertise, creativity, speed in responding to any and all questions, and especially your patience.

  • "I love our website - especially working on it because you've made it so easy to add content and pictures and change prices and descriptions. I've been on a lot of what I think of as clunky monkey sites and ours feels like smooth mint ice cream. Our customers love it as well - I'm surprised at how often they mention this to us. They show up with printouts and lists they created from it and they look at it on their cell phones when they're wandering around looking at plants. This phone feature also saves us having to explain everything to them again since they can access it on their own.

    Plus - your incredible patience working with us, answering our questions and sending screen shots to show us graphically just how to do it. You both have saved us hours and hours of agony that came with our old site and for this we are very grateful."
