Business Apps, Wordpress, Expression Engine, Mobile Development
I am focused on hands-on web and mobile development but also provide consulting services for requirement gathering and specification. This includes information architecture, platform planning.
Online business applications
Web applications are the best way to move your business forward and with the increasing popularity of web enabled mobile devices, it is an increasingly economical alternative to traditional desktop solutions. I have been building online business applications since 2000. In that time I have found the key factors of success are:
- Intuitive and easy of use
- Efficient and fast
- Extendable and scalable
- Standards compliant
- Well documented
||Mobile applications are changing the way business gets done and we are just at the beginning of a new wave of change that is being driven by Smartphone technology.
What I like about mobile applications is the how they are used to extend existing systems rather than replacing them. Current investments in server based web applications and databases become the foundation of successful mobile applications.
There are limitless opportunities to leverage your existing IT investments through easily distributable mobile websites and applications that give give staff more flexibility and customers more convenience than ever before.
CMS (Content Management System) solutions
||Yawn! Yes everyone and their dog is offering CMS solutions but it is an important aspect of any web development plan. I support both mainstream and proprietary CMS systems and offer consulting services for new website owners to help determine the best CSM choices. It is important to realize that there is no perfect CMS for everyone. You must identify your needs and find a solution that meets those needs as closely as possible without sacrificing too much control. Let’s talk about where you want to go, and find the best tool for getting there.
Wordpress, Joomla and Expression Engine
I have plenty of experience with these popular systems and can extend your functionality with custom widgets and themes. I also do repairs and security audits.
If your investment has turned into an annoying error message and your web developer isn't returning your calls, let me help. I fix broken tools, websites, intranets and servers. I can quickly identify the cause of the problem and fix it in a way that ensures it won't happen again. Call now – your site won't fix itself.
I fix and redesign:
- Broken server and client site code
- Corrupt HTML
- CSS incompatibilities
- Navigation problems
- Server configurations
PDF to HTML conversion
||There are many tools that convert PDF to HTML, but the resulting formats are always incompatible with Common Look and Feel guidelines. To address this problem I developed a system to automate the reformatting process.
I recently converted over 10,000 pages to an HTML format compliant with Canadian Federal Government Common Look & Feel 2.0 guidelines. Whatever your organization’s format looks like, I can configure the system to automate 90% of the conversion work. Typical conversion rates are $5 per page for orders exceeding 1,000 pages and $8 per page for orders of 500 to 1,000 pages.
