Static Websites, Content Management Systems, Custom Web Applications
We are living in the digital age where no one can afford not to have a presence on the world wide web. Your online presence helps you in your brand awareness, growing into other markets, generating interest and potential business and engaging with your audiences. You simply cannot be left out of the loop. HIVE information Systems offer a comprehensive and professional web design and development service to customers of all sizes, including small businesses, corporate organisations and individuals.
We firmly believe that your website is one of your most important marketing and sales tools. That’s why we pay as much attention to the usability of your site as we do to how it looks. We understand the web, and you understand your business. Together we can make your website work harder for your business 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
During the design and build process we will, as a matter of course, ensure that your site showcases your products and services, has intuitive and consistent navigation, encourages visitors to buy, or to contact you and is uncluttered and easy on the eye.
Many of the sites that we build use some sort of content management system (CMS) – we use a variety of different open-source systems and the choice is based on case by case basis. The main open source solutions we use are: WordPress, Drupal and Magento.
We build our websites on open source software, which means rapid deployment, no license costs, no closed box solutions and international community support and backing. Furthermore, rich libraries are available, as are constant upgrades and updates against malicious security threats. We are masters at customising and configuring these open source solutions and at integrating highly-tailored front ends.
A content management system (CMS) back-end aids in having a dynamic living website with up-to-date content, which ranks better with search engines and keeps visitors coming back. All the CMS solutions we use are user-friendly and secure.
A winning formula for a successful website includes:
- A well structured front-end which enhances the User Experience (UX) and helps in conversion rates and better business. Clicks are usually kept to a minimum and information is to be made available at a fingertip.
- A robust, secure and scalable back-end which offers the administrators the facility to update the content of the site. We also provide for interfacing with back-office systems like: stock management systems, booking engines and memberships management systems. In case of e-commerce solutions we also integrate payment gateways.
We are web designers and developers, not just designers. Not every web project is straightforward, and you may find that some web designers are not able to give you exactly what you want. We specialise in solving problems and finding solutions, in essence, ‘Bespoke Development’. No matter what your requirements are, we have the creativity and technical ability to come up with tailored solutions.
We design and create complex and dynamic database driven websites and web applications using the latest technologies.
And that’s not all. We can also help you with:
- Motion graphics
We work with established experts in their respective field, so we can assure you of a super-professional job on all counts.
Whether you need a one-page brochure site or a complex database driven web application, we would love to hear from you.
