Services

We take an agile approach by first gaining a holistic view of your business, then blending form and function to deliver customer experiences that stand the test of time.

Our Experience

For over 10 years, we have designed, engineered and built web sites and applications using many different platforms, languages and content management systems. We have also collaborated with startups and global Fortune 500 companies alike to build and optimize their web presence. This experience gives us a unique perspective which informs everything we do to guide clients through the digital marketing ecosystem as we build world class customer experiences.

Strategy and Architecture

Building the right thing means starting out with a holistic understanding among the entire team with respect to three simple questions:  Where are you?  Where are you going?  How are you going to get there?  We will work with you to gather data to validate assumptions, test theories and design constant improvement into your process.  We will also work with your team on key tasks such as system selection, integration architecture and establishment of a scalable, secure infrastructure.  Results: A solid foundation upon which to build including:

 

  • Discovery and Research
  • Customer persona / customer journey development 
  • Information Architecture
  • Application / Enterprise Architecture 
  • Site Maps
  • Application / code reviews
  • Requirements Gathering and documentation
  • Marketing Automation / content personalization strategy
  • Roadmap development 

User Experience Design

Our designers are about more than just pretty pictures.  We will collaborate directly with you through a customer-centric design approach in order to combine an understanding of your vision, your customers' perspective and your strategic objectives in order to create a design embodying both form and function.  Depending on your budget, business needs, expected traffic and time horizon for the project, we can take one of three tracks:

 

  • Custom - For the larger enterprise looking for a long term design solution, we get everyone in a room, sketch out concepts, and hone those ideas through wireframing, then composite designs to iterate on a design before it is implemented in code.  
  • Semi-custom - Using our own growing library of performance optimized components, we can lower the cost of site development with starter templates which can help accelerate projects without compromising performance, flexibility or scalability.
  • Templated - We work with you to select an off the shelf template to use as a starting point for your site.  This can drastically lower costs for web sites that need to be launched on a tight schedule and budget.  
 

A SOLID FOUNDATION DOESN'T HAPPEN. IT'S BUILT.

Drupal Development

A solid customer experience requires a solid content management system.  For the past 10 years, we have built web sites using most of the custom approaches and content systems on the market.  This journey informs our decision to come out front and center with Drupal due to its flexibility, performance, security and strong community.  No one solution is perfect for everyone; however, we are comfortable that a well architected Drupal site will be able to evolve with today's ever growing technical landscape for a long time to come. 

  • Content management system selection consulting to help you make the right decisions.
  • Content hub architecture when you need one place for your content.
  • Content personalization to target your customers and prospects
  • Site building and theming to create a truly unique experience.
  • Custom module development to enable Drupal to do, well, anything.
  • Migrations, upgrades and optimization when it's time to take your older Drupal site to the next step.
  • Support and training to get in the driver's seat of this powerful system.
  • Maintenance and updates because a secure site is a well maintained, up-to-date site.
  • Hosting because making the right hosting decisions pays off in spades during your project and beyond.

Custom Web and App Development

When all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail. While this may seem true for others, it is not true for us.  Our roots lie in many, many years of experience and education in software engineering.  Our experience has taken us on a journey through Java, Node, .NET and other languages covering many frameworks across the spectrum.  When a secure, performant web service or mobile app is called for, we are up to the challenge.

 

  • Languages: Java, Node, C# / .NET and more.
  • Frameworks including Spring, MVC, Loopback and more.
  • NoSQL databases including Couchbase and MongoDB.
  • Relational databases including SQL Server, MySQL and PostgreSQL.
  • Web services architecture

Hosting and Long Term Support

The right hosting and support arrangement can make all the difference in the world toward streamlining the development process, keeping your systems secure and integrating with your internal systems.  While simplicity and automation are key, the choice of an appropriate infrastructure involves weighing numerous factors.  We will work with you to make the right decision and have hosting partnerships and extensive experience with Acquia Cloud, Rackspace and Amazon Web Services should you be ready to host in the cloud.  

Support, monitoring and regular system updates are the first line of defense or ensuring a secure system which is always there for your customers.  We will work with our partners to ensure that your systems stay up and running and will be there for you to provide support throughout the life of your system.

 

  • Hosting with Acquia Cloud, Rackspace and Amazon Web Services. 
  • Dev ops, disaster recovery, code and deployment management. 
  • Regular updates and patching to keep your system secure.
  • SLA's to fit your needs and budget.
