Our Services

Every customer has a different set of requirements which is part of what makes our job enjoyable, interesting and challenging. Below are some of the typical types of work we perform for our clients.

Web Development

Need a site built using Microsoft technologies? Got a site or an application you need developed in ASP.NET? Whether you need help building a completely new site or application, or whether you just need a hand maintaining an existing one, then we can help you.

Check out our development partner, Ignition Development. Ignition can help you get your site underway, no matter how big or small, as well as offering hosting solutions and managing of your domain names.

Onsite or Short-Term Assistance

If you've got a project deadline looming and need some assistance then give us a call. We're happy to help out whether you need part time, full time, short term, long term, onsite or offsite assistance.

Product Implementation

From content management systems and wikis through to blogs, if it's in the world of ASP.NET then we can help you customise and deploy it. We use and recommend a list of best of breed ASP.NET products - and if we've not used it before, we'd love to give it a try.

IBM Lotus Notes / Domino

We've got a lot of experience with both development and administration of the Notes/Domino platform. We'd prefer to help you migrate your applications over to ASP.NET, but if that's not an option and you need some development or maintenance work done then we're happy to help out.

One of our specialities is updating the look and feel of your Domino Web Applications so they look right at home in the modern web 2.0 world. This is a great option if your organisation is looking to get a bit more life from your existing Notes/Domino applications and infrastructure.
