Responsive & User Focused Websites

The web is a pretty wonderful thing. Knowing how to leverage it for your benefit is a crucial step in optimising your business. We offer guidance, project management and development on websites and admin workflows, all underpinned by user experience and quality assurance standards.

This may be for a refresh of a website aimed at marketing your services, or advice on and implementation of web apps or systems to speed or automate your activities. We are keen on the cloud, hot on accessibility, and begin with simple solutions that can be enhanced further as required. We have experience in setting up and migrating to Google Apps, implementing back-up solutions, task lists & project management, and everyday use of mobile devices.

Responsive design

When it comes to your own site, we encourage you to be proud of what's likely to be your main shop window. We recommend a mobile-first and responsive design approach to ensure a fully functional and good looking site. Another way to say this is that every website should be: fast, functional & beaufiful. In the 21st century, this means something that does this on any device - Android or Apple, and beyond! This approach has been shown to save time and money during site construction and updates, and to improve performance and search engine ranking.

Gone are the days of desktops and laptops only. Visitors come to your site on a plethora of screens at all different shapes, sizes and capabilities. Research shows that many visitors even swap screens part way through a visit. Responsive design makes sense now as our best means to removing as many obstacles as possible to visitors reaching your content.
