We use Joomla for developing our CMS sites. This has a web based interface that means that no special facilities other than an internet connected computer running a modern browser are required.

Joomla is one of the world's most popular platforms with over 40M downloads since 2006. Recent studies showed that 2.8% of all internet sites are running Joomla. Companies using Joomla include:

  • Ebay
  • Ikea
  • Pizza Hut
  • McDonalds
  • General Electric

We install the software on our hosting environment, configure the look and feel of the site to match your branding and add the functionality required to make your site come alive. We work with you to get across what you want to say and to ensure your site will be optimised to be ranked highly by search engines.

We also provide analytics tools to allow you to see how users interact with your site, allowing fine tuning as required.
