WE BUILD WEB APPS

Sometimes you need more than just content management. We can craft custom applications tailored to your specifications.

SMS Messaging, eCommerce, Awards Applications, Staff Retention Tools, Video Managers, Indoor Rock Climbing Gym systems, Interactive Maps -- these are only a few of the apps we have built.

We build our custom applications with Symfony 2, Bootstrap 3 and jQuery.

RESPONSIVE DESIGN

Building a web site is easy.
Making it work across various devices is also easy. For us.

Long gone are the days of having separate sites for mobile and desktop. Modern sites respond to the device. And here are just a few considerations when developing a responsive site:

  • While pared down it should still display pertinent information
  • Respect your visitor's bandwidth - don't load unnecessary images
  • Be easy to navigate with a flip of your finger or thumb

We make our sites responsive with the powerful Bootstrap 3 JavaScript & CSS Framework.

MODERN CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

The best content management system lets you get your message out without getting in the way.


We build, theme and host sites on all modern content management systems: Drupal, Joomla! and WordPress. Which one is right for you? The one that allows you to quickly and easily manage your web site without getting in your way.

We also build custom plugins, modules and components for all content management systems, such as these which are being used by these clients:

Invoicing Systems

As we like to say, "we eat our own dog food." Our own invoicing system was custom-built by us!

eCommerce

Get paid quickly online! We build systems that work with Authorize.net, PayPal and many more processors. (Earth Treks)

Single Sign-On (SSO)

Authenticate your users through your third-party CRM and restrict access to premium content. (GCCA)

Maps!

JavaScript maps that display dynamic data across both desktop, tablet and mobile devices! (FRAC)




SERIOUS, HANDS-ON MANAGED HOSTING

Your site is the most public facet of your business. So why stake everything on budget, consumer-level hosting?

Our servers are all U.S. based and located in secure hosting facilities connected to Level 3 Communications, Cox and Cogent Communications internet routers. This guarantees optimum throughput. We offer hosting plans with unlimited bandwidth, so you never have to worry about bandwidth overages. Servers can be connected to a 40 or 100Mbps with a 1Gbps option available.

All of our servers are custom-built for your needs now and down the road. In addition to locking down access only through shared public key we also employ several security traps to keep out the bad guys.

PCI Compliance

With our somewhat paranoid approach to security and geekiness for the latest technology we offer hosting that meets PCI compliant standards.

Speed and Stability

Our servers are built to make your web sites load fast and take a pounding. We build for nginx and PHP 5.5+ with built-in OPcache

Backups

One full backup per week and incremental backups nightly to our private cloud ensure your data is protected from catastrophe.

Uptime Monitoring & Support

Our uptime monitors constantly keep an eye on our servers. We also have technicians on-site at the hosting facility 24/7/365.

PROFESSIONAL VIDEO

"Our intern's iPhone video was great! Can you fix the stability, improve the lighting and increase and clean up the audio?"

With video driving a good portion of web content you need professional video and audio equipment to separate yourself from the phone camera set.

Our professional video production services can do just that. We have the equipment and expertise to separate yourself from the consumer video crowd: 1080 HD video, shotgun, boom and lavalier microphones, tri-directional floor flood lighting and Post-production with Final Cut Pro.

BEYOND E-MAIL: ENTERPRISE COMMUNICATIONS

Our email services provide you with essential business communications tools: E-mail, Calendaring, Address Books, Tasks and much more. All of these features can be shared with your co-workers and synchronized across all major platforms including Outlook, Apple Mail, iPhone & iPad and Android devices.

WE CARE ABOUT PRIVACY

We never ever read your emails. Unless you let us. (We have to do maintenance occasionally!)

BUILT FOR MOBILE

Our system works with all modern mobile devices' email and calendar apps. Or you can use the web interface optimized for mobile!

B.Y.O. TECH

Access your email from nearly any mobile device, tablet, email application or through the gorgeous webmail interface.

MUCH MORE!

Custom message filters, folders, tags, import/export, built-in office applications and much, much more!

GET OUR SPAM!

We only send our propaganda every 2-3 months
