Wingspan specialises in business websites for SMBs. Some of these run to over a thousand pages, others to less than twenty.
We strive to establish long term relationships with our clients, developing cost effective websites as their requirements, and the internet, evolve.
We provide consultancy and mentoring to other developers assisting them to build applications in ASP.NET MVC and CMS Websites.
We strongly recommend to our clients that they use a CMS for their website.
CMS stands for Content Management System. A CMS allows your non technical staff members to update the corporate website without involving a professional web designer. We can deliver a CMS website quickly and efficiently.
We setup and configure the website and provide training for your staff members. We can also develop customised widgets to deliver extra functionality where needed.
We use Orchard CMS, an open source CMS that is sponsored by Microsoft. This means that our clients don't need to pay a license fee to use the CMS and, as it uses state of the art technologies, it is has lower development costs than older CMS such as WordPress or Telerik Sitefinity.
This website is entirely created using Orchard CMS.
Not everything can be delivered using CMS. There are still areas that need the services of a professional web development.
We use Microsoft technology for this, primarily ASP.NET MVC. This technology offers the best future proofing that is currently available.
Our focus is on delivering pragmatic and cost effective business websites. To enhance the functionality of the website, as well as the user experience, we use modern technologies such as jQuery and Silverlight.
All the websites we design use modern CSS layout techniques and we use specialised software to double check that the websites are Standards Compliant.
Our approach to Standards Compliance is pragmatic: how far you want to take compliance is up to you, and we are happy to advise on this matter.
We use Microsoft SQL Server for all online databases.
We offer a very affordable web hosting service to our clients.
We rent a Web Server from Orcsweb.com and use their technicians to manage the server. As a result, we can offer our clients highly reliable, secure and performant web hosting.
Orcsweb.com is widely recognised as an industry leader.
