Over the years we have worked with a variety of businesses developing solutions specific to their industry.
Below are just some of the solutions that we have built for our clients, here
conveniently grouped by industry.
We hope that you find this useful and find inspiration, whether
developing a new website or planning upgrades to your current site.
We have worked with large, multinational, manufacturers as well as smaller manufacturers developing both websites and corporate intranets.
An oft repeated concern is how to get their audience; be it staff, B2B or customers, to visit their site regularly.
The answer of course is content.
Intranets are websites, secured or password-protected, specifically designed for the people within your organization to conduct internal business.
With your own intranet you control the message delivered to your staff. From company policies, internal announcements, staff & resource scheduling to the cafeteria menu.
Your biggest investment is in your people and your biggest challenge is training them. Use e-learning to reduce both your training and administration costs.
Utilize cutting edge, interactive online media for parts catalogues, brochures, manuals or policy papers.
Improve their impact by integrating audio visual aides right into your documents.
A Blog, whether part of a corporate intranet or on your website, is one of the easiest ways to allow your staff to post updates.
Department heads can post the latest news on your intranet or sales managers the latest product updates.
An Internet forum is a discussion area on a website. Members can post discussions, read and respond to posts by other forum members.
Each working group in your organization can have its own forum that team members may view & post to.
Have a new project? Simply add a new board to your forum and select who has privileges to access it.
Event booking calendar
Post and share your company or site events online with a web based calendar.
Your online calendar can be as simple as posting events to a fully function booking system for office resources such as conference rooms, company vehicles or equipment.

Everything you need for running, customizing and extending your online recruitment service.

- Listing enhancements are fully automated and paid for online - all that you do is receive the payment
And maintaining the company listings couldn't be easier as it too is all done automatically.
Annually we send multiple reminders to each company to update their listing.

Online Reader Service Cards
An online reader service card is a cost effective way to put advertiser information into your readers' hands.
The system consists of three general sections.
The portion utilized by readers in which they can view and request information on the advertisements that are in your magazine(s);
an administration section used to manage the advertisements in each issue of the magazine,
and a section for the publisher to view reports on the leads that have been generated.
The system is real-time in that a request from a reader is emailed to the appropriate advertiser immediately without the need for any action on the part of the magazine.
Statistics on the leads generated can be viewed online as well as exported to Excel or in XML.
The optional New Products Catalogue feature consists of a content management system that allows
magazine staff to easily upload text, graphics and HTML for new product listings.
Multimedia files, such as audio, video & Flash, may also be included.
These products will be listed concurrently with your magazine's Reader Service Card listings.
Readers have the option to request information on new products at the same time as they request information on advertisements.
Post industry events to your website quickly and easily with an online calendar.
This is a complete events management system specially designed to allow you to post and schedule events online.

The simple user interface has been designed to make working with the application a breeze and trouble-free.
