Why choose us

We work with a view to extend and prolong the value of our solutions for your whole business, not just the tip of the iceberg that your web site exposes to the public.
Web sites are often viewed as primarily sales and marketing vehicles. While that is an area of strength, web applications can connect everyone in your business with everyone they deal with, inside or outside your company. We work towards the vision that each transaction, achievement, project, idea or discussion should flow transparently and immediately through your organisation, so that all your people can see their effects in whatever aspect and whatever level of detail makes sense for them.
We have deep experience in enterprise class business systems in many industries. We understand nuts and bolts, kits and batches, swatches and samples, sales reps and storemen. We’ve built solutions for engineers, factories, warehouses, car companies, transport firms, mining, printing, fashion, plastics, universities, health sector, service businesses and more. We focus on business process and data integration, and we have the skills and technology to get it right. We build web applications in the context of your whole business, and we work to make them connect seamlessly with all your existing business systems.
Maybe you don’t need this level of integration between your public web sites and your core business systems yet, but if and when you do, we have the skills and experience to help you.
We offer a coordinated, progressive, comprehensive range of quality open source solutions, chosen for optimal:
- Ease of use
- Total cost of ownership
Start small and grow with your customer base, at your own pace. The solutions we provide will grow with you, in function, power, scale, effectiveness and value; from a single shared server all the way to highly available enterprise infrastructure in a cloud.
