More and more people are getting the bulk of their daily information through online and interactive means. Our Interactive Services group offers cutting-edge website design and development for any size endeavor—from one-page promotional sites to enterprise-level web-based applications to games and YouTube-style streaming multimedia, and much more.
Design & Construction
World-class creative talent delivers the finest in site designs that are engaging yet industry-appropriate. From eye-catching graphics to stunning animations, we deliver the visual you need to stand out! But there’s more to web design than great visuals. Our designers are well-versed in such technical issues as usability, bandwidth optimization, cross-browser compatibility. Add to that our expertise in search engine optimization, keyword integration, and other HTML practices to ensure that you have the best possible presence in Google and the other major search engines.
Once your site is constructed, our team can set up and integrate site analytics that allow clients to monitor site traffic and generate a variety of reports showing a wide array of data including but not limited to: number of hits, unique visitors, browser types, and even geographical locations of visitors.
Programming & Development
Whatever your need, our Interactive Services group can provide a solid and effective solution using the latest technology or legacy technologies. Our development experience spans multiple platforms including Windows development (ASP, .NET, etc.) and more Unix-based or "LAMP" environments (PHP, MySQL, etc.).
The Interactive Services group also has an extensive background in Flash/ActionScript development. We have built a wide array of applications using this extremely versatile platform. These applications, commonly called RIA's (Rich Internet Applications) leverage the capabilities of animation, streaming media, and data sources such as XML to create cutting-edge applets and "widgets" such as multimedia players, games, sophisticated administrative interfaces—even tools that extend to the desktop.
If you have products for sale, your website can be a 24/7 virtual storefront that is always open for business. We have years of experience in site setup and integration. We understand the ins and outs of shopping carts, online catalogs/product databases, online credit card, E-Check, digital cash acceptance, and secure billing environments with SSL encryption. We can also provide solutions that handle shipping details or confirmations directly from within the ordering process.
Web 2.0 Integration
Our Interactive Services group can also extend your website's content and functionality through the integration of other tools such as GoogleMaps, blogs, RSS feeds, and social media. Allow your users to share your valuable content through social bookmarking portals such as iGoogle, Yahoo, Digg, Del.icio.us, Reddit, and many more.
Extend your presence even further by using the social networking opportunities of Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace. The Interactive Services group can help you launch a professional, customized appearance on these platforms. If you need more sophistication, we can provide custom applications that integrate directly into Facebook or MySpace.
Interactive Banner Ads
When it comes to online promotion, nothing is more ubiquitous than the banner ad. Our creative designers and developers can create attention-getting interactive online ads of all shapes and sizes. Whether it be a simple image, complex Flash animation, or video, we can help get people to your site.
The Interactive Services group also has experience in the arena of email marketing. Whereas banner ads are a “shotgun” approach, displaying to everyone who visits a particular site, E-Newsletters and email-based invitations are more targeted, going directly to the interested party. We can create a professional and credible email campaign to get your message across and provide "click-thru" capabilities to a site where you can deliver (and gather!) more information.
E-Cards (also known as E-Greetings) provide a very engaging way to reach out to an audience. The possibilities of E-cards are vast. They are commonly sent out via email for birthdays and holidays, but can be created with any occasion, theme, or product/service in mind. They can be fun or straight-forward. Comical or corporate. An E-card can also prompt user feedback or a response once it displays.
Sometimes, interactive creativity can be delivered in ways other than on the web. When you want to present your product, service or idea in a way that is not Internet-dependent -- or requires high-res graphics, 3-D, or video -- contact us about a disc-based presentation. On-disc presentations can be played on computers or home DVD players.
Make your presentations sizzle with custom treatments from our Interactive Services group! Let us customize your PowerPoint presentations with professional design templates integrating company colors, logos, images and more. Our group also utilizes advanced techniques to incorporate multimedia such as audio, video, and even Flash animation directly into the slides. If you need something more sophisticated, we can create a custom, self-contained presentational piece that transcends past the capabilities of PowerPoint or other presentation software. Once complete, we can make your piece available through various channels of delivery including online, CD/DVD, PC/Mac desktop and more.
