We Build Web Experiences

..in the Cloud

The days of owning your own server and data center are over. We appreciate that cloud services demand a new way of building applications to scale and process user data.

...with responsive design

Today's web applications have to look and act great on large displays, laptops, tablets, and smart phones. We design user interfaces and functions with mobile as the primary focus then progressively add features for larger displays.

...with media in mind

Using high definition video and universally compatible information graphics is a critical component of most web applications today. We navigate and find the best open source and commercial solutions for you.

Our Approach

The Prime Directive

We enable success for our customers. That is our charter and our focus. We believe in the power of internet technology to connect people and processes. In doing so we help make organizations faster, leaner, and more effective. Our approach to designing and building solutions is intended to capture the essence of the solution's role in meeting the objectives.

Other Key Considerations

It's all about you. We optimize around your priories whether they be speed, cost, or agility. We also guarantee transparency is all we do. No more secret web designing.

Planning

This is what sets us apart. Our planning cycle starts with your business and what you want to accomplish. Only then do we talk about the internet and it's potential role(s) in enabling the business plan. We outline the site functionality from the view point of the user (user stories).

Design

Design is technical and graphical. The two are always linked. Site maps, wireframes, URLs, and comps are developed at this stage in collaboration with you. We get your sign off at every step to keep us grounded.

Development

When planning and design are done well, development is straight forward and quick. We leverage resources around the world to follow-the-sun for speed and to lower your total costs. All development is tracked in an online platform for full visibility.

Support

We never publish and run. We include 30 days of support in every project and will always pick the phone if you need us. We know internet apps are always evolving so we'll be there when you need us. We can setup affordable support retainers to ensure you always get prompt response.

Bottom Line

We use methodology based on our years of accountability for technical solution development. We are your partner and will treat you with the respect and attention that is required for your key internet investment. We want you to succeed and will not stop until you do.
