Computer-based training

(CBT) gives the users the opportunity to progress at the pace that suits them and is ideal when you have large numbers of people to train and test. It can also be adaptive so the user is not forced to repeat subjects that they already understand. On-line, off-line or on your phone, the results can be collated to allow the administrator to view the progress of their user group. Another advantage of computer based learning is that new content can be added via updates and if required your own company can manage the content via a CMS.

The use of CBT is not restricted to the educational sector. Bespoke CBT systems can offer companies a better solution for staff training due to their flexibility and accessibility. On-line course-ware can be accessed via any browser based device. If required courses can also be SCORM compliant.

Performance tracking and bench-marking

We have recently completed This is a tracking and resource system for primary school children. It allows class and headteachers to track the progress of their pupils and offers resources to help with lesson planning. The system uses fluid grouping to sort pupils by ability for lessons allowing them to progress at their own rate. Within the system pupils can move between classes, years and even other schools that are opprating stepup4success. For the teachers, it creates lesson plans, formats reports, tracks progress and creates precision learning maps. Development of an integrated pre-school version is underway.

Web development

Is your site still doing the business?

When your site was developed a few years ago you probably thought that was it? Unfortunately no! Over the past few years the way people access the internet has changed dramatically. Now days your customer could be viewing your site from a 50 inch HD TV or more likely from 4 inch smart-phone. So what you need to ask yourself is does our site work as well as it could on these devices?

Successful mobile content delivery requires you to address more than just display issues!

How do we build our sites?

Most of our sites are built using PHP using one of the popular frame works CodeIgniter, CakePHP, Zend, Yii, Symfony, Kohana. We can also build or midify sites created in Wordpress, Dupral or Joomla. If you require a site built in we can create this using the Umbraco frame work. The use of these frame works also means the CMS that our clients have access to have a familiar feel. Once your site or web application is completed then we can help you decided on what type of hosting you need and other considerations such as CDN.

So what else can we offer?

A swell as creating whole sites a lot of our work involves creating tools that extend the functionality of existing sites. The could be anything.

Surely this costs a lot?

Well this really depends on the scale of your project and the amount of traffic you expect. We work with more than one CMS and all the ones we use are open source. If we know know what your budget is and what you are trying to achieve we can put together a package to suit. If you are a big multi-national maybe you will need a system based on Umbraco or CodeIgniter but if you are SME you might be better with a system based on Joomla,Dupral or Wordpress with their endless lists of pre-developed extensions.

The most important thing to consider is we only charge you for what we actually do! If we can find an API, extension or plug-in that will add functionality to your site we will not pretend that we have spent hours creating it we will simply charge you for the cost of implementation.




Synergy Duplication

We re-designed the Synergy website and moved it onto an Umbraco based CMS. Back-end functionality was added for quoting and order tracking and their logo was given a tweak to bring it back up to date. Once the site completed we created a highly successful e-mail marketing campaign (images below) to drive traffic to their new site.

Hindleys Bakery

We have just completed this project in super quick time. The brief was to re-design the Hindleys Bakery website and supporting material and also to extend the functionality of the site itself whilst at the same time making it easier to manage. So what was the rush? Well it needed to be completed before they appeared on ITVs Britains Best Bakery.

Hindleys is a small family run bakery based in Lichfield that bake in a traditional way. They have several shops and other outlets in the Staffordshire area. Website: Hindleys
