Quite simply, we don’t “speak geek” – technology is merely the enabler to achieve your online business objectives.
We have a seasoned team of professionals who have been designing and developing leading websites since 1998. With over 10+ years of experience we’ve seen a lot of changes, evolutions and learned how to maximize our client’s return on their web development investments.
Over the last three years we have worked almost exclusively with a web development framework called DotNetNuke. DotNetNuke is a development framework that enables businesses to quickly build and deploy feature-rich, interactive websites and applications in Microsoft environments. Through an intuitive, menu-driven interface, we can easily create new sites or extend the functionality and features of existing web applications.
With hundreds of thousands of portals, intranets, extranets, and public websites built on DotNetNuke—and an enthusiastic open-source community that is more than 600,000 strong and growing—DotNetNuke is the world’s most widely adopted framework for building web solutions on the Microsoft stack. The framework is incredibly stable and secure and easy for us to customize your unique brand to that you’ll be amazed how much functionality you get for the dollar investment you put forth.
The DotNetNuke solution is available to us for free and is an open source framework that allows us to take advantage of upgrades and new modules as they emerge. This type of software was not available prior to 2006. "Modules" are modular pieces of code that each present some functionality to the user. Popular modules we can embed into your site include user forums, photo galleries, blog publishers, directory tools, chat applications, contact managers, and events calendars.
We first sit down with you to get a better understanding of your business and how the website fits in. For example, if the website is being used to generate sales leads, we need to make sure these leads are channelled to the right people and handled immediately. This added workflow must be thought through or else your customers will become impatient and likely look elsewhere to make their final purchase. Typically, we use several modules grouped together to create a website. These modules can easily be added, edited, deleted, restored, moved within a tab, or transfer to another page. There is really no module that can’t be slightly tweaked to handle your customization requirements. This is where we work with you to understand your needs and how it relates back to the technology. Our job is to make the technology requirements simple to understand.
Within the DotNetNuke ecosystem, there are a wide variety of developers continually producing new and exciting modules for the DotNetNuke application framework. These module developers often build modules which they will sell on their sites or through marketplaces or reseller stores- and some offer modules for free. We have already worked with several of these products and have been very impressed both by the robustness of the applications and the high level of development support they offer. Our view is simple – why recreate the wheel if you don’t have to. Our customers win out and we know the applications we install work and are stable; someone else did the debugging and testing for us.
