In our 15 years of developing websites for clients from the largest multinational enterprise, to the smallest boot strapping start up, one thing has always been a constant. Every client wants great customer service.
We continue to build our business with great customer service as the ultimate goal. When you start your project with us, you know you will have a single point of contact to guide you through the site construction process. Once your site is launched, your Site Consultant continues to support you with suggestions on how to improve your site’s success, and help with questions about whatever might come up.
Our tech support includes our quick reference guide and our Wireware Site Manager Instruction Manual. But the real value that Wireware offers on a monthly basis is the email address and phone number you use to call when you have a question about how to use your website. No trouble tickets, no wikis, no forums. Just you and your Site Consultant, making it work, one on one.
Wireware can help you if you have a full realized company identity and a clear vision by taking your direction and collaborating with you. If you are just starting out and don’t even have a business card yet, Wireware will start at square one with you. In either case, we will work with you to determine how to make the most of your budget, achieve your marketing goals and deliver a solution that is designed just for you.
Your website must reflect your company brand...
even if you aren’t sure what that is yet.
Our design methodology involves identifying the company’s branding goals, understanding the current and future plans for information and functionality, and understanding the practical requirements of time and budget.
But we can’t do all the work without your help. It is during the information gathering part of the development process that you help us understand what you need.
Does your company have a well established brand?
We explore this question and identify how what you already have will drive
the design direction for the site.
How is your website going to build on your business plan?
We want to know what you want your website to accomplish for your business. We need you to tell us who will be visiting your site and how you want them to use it. Then we can determine how the information you present on your site, and the functionality we include on it, will support those goals.
When do you need your site to be completed
and how much do you plan to spend?
These questions are both the easiest and hardest to answer - easiest because you know what you want and hardest because the questions are almost universally anxiety inducing. We are happy to work with you to define a practical schedule for developing and building on to your site that takes your current and future budget needs into consideration.
Once the website’s blueprints and business plans have been outlined, we are able to quickly create a look and feel that satisfies those requirements and fits within our proprietary site building process making our sites beautiful, functional, and affordable.
Turn your brainstorm into business instantly with Wireware's proprietary website management tool, the Wireware Site Manager. With 12 years of experience in building custom content management solutions and working with the latest in open source content management tools, we’ve honed our software to be both powerful AND simple so you can manage your site with ease.
The most important goal for Wireware is to make the power of the internet work for you.
During our tenure in the web development world, we have seen the Content Management System evolve from a highly specialized, complicated and expensive tool reserved for only those companies willing to spend more than $250,000 on their web presence, to the ubiquitous open source freeware available today. The one thing that has not changed in the time we have been working with these systems is that they are usually unnecessarily complicated.
Our mission in developing the Wireware System is to provide a tool that makes building a website affordable, and maintaining the website simple. And above all, the technology will always remain reliable.
Our system helps you keep your website organized through a logical outline presentation.
We guide you through the page layout process with a selection of layout grids to choose from and a custom set of typographic styles from which you can easily design your page. However, we allow you the flexibility to make your own modifications and customizations within the system. When you want it, its there. But it doesn’t weigh you down, when you just want to get your update done.
- You don’t have to worry about system or software updates because we do that for you.
- You don’t have to worry about design template updates because we’ll support your design, or we’ll update it to work with the latest version of our software. It will never be left up to you to fix.
- You don’t have to worry about widget or plugin integration because we’ll take care of that for you.
- You don’t even have to worry about setting up your email or your site stats. We do that too.
