Although our Business Catalyst system comes with a powerful Analytics & Reporting section, we like to compliment this with Google Analytics tracking. Google Analytics is the enterprise-class web analytics solution that gives you rich insights into your website traffic and marketing effectiveness.
HTML5 is a modern way of creating clean and powerful websites. Although this is very much still in its infancy, we use various browser-compatible elements to give us more power than older Document types of HTML.
Create easy integration between other Software as a Service such as Xero, Saasu, Highrise, Freshbooks, Harvest, and many more SaaS services.
Our Websites are Compatible with
We hand code all our websites to the latest W3C Web Standards. The benefits to you (when compared to older 'table based' layouts with inline styling) are that the website loads faster, is more compatible with new browsers and mobile devices, is more future-proof, is easier to make future changes and most importantly; and is better for search engine indexing and your keywords are less diluted.
All our modern websites are designed to be used on Apple's iOS operating system. Which means your customers can buy directly from these Apple iPad or iPhone devices. Not only this, your Admin can be accessed directly from you iOS device - so you can access your Admin area whenever you have an internet or 3G connection!
As we design to the latest W3C Web Standards, all our websites work well on Android powered devices.
All our websites are made to be compatible in Mozilla's FireFox. We recommend FireFox to all our customers, and are impressed by the W3C Web Standards and page load speeds. As developers we mainly develop in FireFox and later debug for other browsers (and heavily hack for Microsoft browsers!)
Safari is the native website browser for Apple Computers and iOS. Safari works well with our W3C optimised websites and is also highly recommended by eCommerce Websites Ltd.
Although our websites are designed to work well with MicroSoft Internet Explorer 7 and above, and comes standard with all Microsoft operating systems - we DO NOT RECOMMEND INTERNET EXPLORER! Saying this, because a good amount of people still use Internet Explorer we ensure all our websites have the necessary hacks and tricks to work well (ask any good web designer what they think of IE :)
We use Vimeo.com for uploading your videos (in nearly any format) and streaming directly into your website; and vimeo is smart enough to render the video correctly for your particular device, be it a PC, Mac, Smartphone or Tablet.
