Why Choose Us?
There are many, many website developers out there, but very few know the history and heritage sector like we do. All websites draw on the same base scripting and coding languages so any developer can create a website for you. But each industry has different ways of communicating and different types of content. We understand the needs of the history and heritage sector.
Excellence in Communication with Our Clients
We pride ourselves in excellent communication with our clients and know how to explain things in language you can understand. We understand that you are experts in your field of work so we don’t expect you to know anything about website development. There will be a small number of times that we will have to discuss a technical matter with you but we will do it in people-speak, not technical jargon. We are happy to help you to learn more about this world if you wish, but we don’t expect you to get brain-ache learning stuff that you don’t have time to learn.
No question is stupid. If you have a question, please ask. If you are feeling stressed about the process, please let us know. We care about our clients and want to help you to do what you do best.
WordPress and the Genesis Framework
We help small organisations develop their businesses by developing WordPress websites using the Genesis Framework. WordPress websites are used widely across the world by both large organisations and small. This demonstrates that WordPress is very suitable for the needs of small organisations and individuals but has the fundamentals that make it a sophisticated, scalable platform that large organisations use.
The Genesis Framework for WordPress is favoured by developers for its rigorous standards, attention to security, regular updates for performance, security and design improvements and a world-wide network of developers who support each other.
Unlike other website platforms such as Wix, you can access all the code and your website database whenever you need it. This makes transferring your website development work and hosting to someone else quite easy.
Best Practice Development Work
While we cater for small organisations, we don’t believe that there should be any compromise in the professional standards we maintain. We do our software development in a separate development environment, test it in a staging environment and get client approval for our work before we upload our work to your live website.
We always create a child theme on the Genesis Framework so bespoke modifications we make to your website are preserved when regular updates to your underlying WordPress and Genesis software are made.
