A website is a business tool, with its simplest intent of describing your business. As your business grows your website will most likely grow with you and setting a solid foundation from the start is important and will save you money in the long run.
Your business need
Your business challenges, at this moment, might be one of two: establishing a web presence so that your customers know more about your offerings OR a site redesign with an aim to take control of your content changes and layout. Pillars recognises these challenges and will implement the correct solution for you.
How do we control costs
Pillars continually investigates technologies, technologies that provide business benefit. Our investigations have lead to a Content Management System (CMS) that does not have license costs and is mostly free to use. After years of using this CMS, we know its "ins and outs", and this experience gives you a website that is easily customisable, both in functionality and design.
Another way of reducing your cost is the role you play. If the budget is restricted, you can leverage the CMS' functionality to change content and layout and we can train you. This is not just on the initial release, but also on an on-going basis, reducing your short-term and longer term costs.
Coupling the above with our hosting services (domain registration, website, email and backups) allows us to be competitively priced, minimising your IT investment.
Future-proof your investment
Coming from a structured Business & IT background, Pillars realises that investing smartly in a technology path allows for future growth.
We also know that an IT investment cannot be limiting in the years to come. Our decisions, for protecting your future, consider your business growth and we ensure the website can be ready for: search marketing, multi-language, extending with "widgets" or custom development.
