Specialising in Custom Website Development Tailored for Your Business.
We develop websites using PHP based open-source CMS. We prefer using WordPress (because it makes it easier for you to manage and update your website), but our team of skilled developers are equally at home working on Magento, Joomla, Drupal and Silverstripe.
The same goes for plug-ins. If there isn’t a reliable and secure plug-in that provides the functionality you need, we’ll develop a plug-in that does.
It’s open source, so you own it.
We develop your site on open source software to give you true ownership. If, heaven forbid, you decide to move your site further down the track, any competent hosting company will be able to host it, and any PHP developer worth their salt will be able to work on it.
We build custom websites too.
Often, businesses with limited budgets need to make compromises and adapt their business processes to fit around ‘out-of-the-box’ functionality provided by a website content management system, inventory management system and/or CRM.
It essentially becomes a case of the tail wagging the dog.
We say “hell no.” Budget permitting, our developers can customise your website to fit your business rules. Yes, a custom build is more expensive, but think of the long-term benefits. You’ll have a website that truly meets your needs and is likely to quickly achieve a return on that additional investment.
Complex website integrations don’t scare us.
Our brave developers can integrate your website front-end with virtually any system that has an API. This is no idle boast. We’ve successfully completed integrations with a large number of different CMS systems, email marketing systems, ERP systems, inventory management systems, accounting systems, booking systems, rental car management systems…. You get the idea.
We’ve connected e-commerce stores to trade-me and built custom mapping solutions using Google Maps API.
In short, we can get your website to talk to any other system.
Yes, your site’s responsive.
Your customers and prospects have an array of devices at their fingertips. So we’ll make sure your site works on whatever device it’s being viewed on, whether it be an iPhone, and iMac or something in-between.
Clever coding to make your site faster.
Our web developers can do all manner of wonderful things for your site – like make it go faster. In a time-poor world, a speedy site is a must. We can minify slow-coach code, properly size and compress images and convert them to next-gen formats, add and optimise caching, set up gzip compression, and defer or lazy load offscreen images, all of which add up to a site that loads with the sort of speed users expect (and demand).
We develop hard coded websites.
A CMS is great if you need a lot of functionality and don’t have the budget to build it all from scratch. But if you’re after a site with simple functionality that doesn’t require ongoing managing or updating, we’d probably recommend a hard-coded HTML site. That way you don’t end up with a whole lot of redundant code that serves no purpose except to slow down your site.
