Our Services

We can develop a customised database to create a highly interactive website, no matter how complicated you think your needs are.

We use PHP and MySQL to create content management systems (CMS) to allow you to easily update information on your website or to dynamically generate web pages that are customised to user needs and interests incorporating any kind of data including text, images, video and sound files.

We can set up simple or gradated access controls so that you can manage who can access your website content or any part of it. You might have pages that are just for customers, or you might want your members to be able to go online and update information, place orders or put themselves on a mailing list. You might want to allow people to upload images or download documents.

You might need to provide an online calculator so that people can work out what they need or what their options are before they contact you. You might want to implement reminders or alerts by SMS for members or customers.

Community Groups

As an adjunct to our commercial web development services, we are happy to work with local community groups who need a hand getting online. We offer a substantially reduced rate for non-profit organisations based in North East Tasmania.

There are lots of online applications on the web for managing community groups and events, and many of them are free. Some will allow you to accept payments by credit card for a small fee if you are selling tickets or accepting donations.
