Web and Database Design Solutions

In the technology-driven marketplace of the 21st century, your company's website is more than just the face of your business: it's the public's perception of your organization and the products and services you offer. More than ever before, consumers searching for specific, local products and services are launching their Web browsers instead of reaching for the phone book, and the impression a company's website offers dramatically affects the consumer's buying decisions.

The creation of an attractive, effective website requires both talented designers and a team of professionals with the ability to translate the identity and values of your company into a fluid and dynamic site that appeals to your target customer group. This process also requires an understanding of collaborative marketing and the need for your website to reinforce the core ideals communicated through your company's other media.

   For more than a decade, Area-Wide Technologies has been helping businesses of all sizes succeed in attracting new, diverse clientele through the design and implementation of websites that reflect an understanding of our customers' overall business objectives. From professionally-crafted sites based on dozens of attractive templates to completely customized, application-driven websites, Area-Wide has a solution for every need, including:   
  • Complete design and publication of your site, from concept to completion
  • Design styles from static HTML-based sites to interactive, Flash-driven designs
  • Industry-specific content to populate the pages of your site at launch or through regular updates once the site is online
  • Database-driven sites to enable shopping carts, user login, and other collaborative features
  • Quick turn-around time and comprehensive post-launch support
   Similarly, Area-Wide Technologies has been designing, deploying, and supporting customized databases for more than 10 years. Written in a variety of programming languages, many of the database systems Area-Wide supports, in fact, were written by an outside firm; simply put, Area-Wide is able to deliver both the depth of knowledge and responsiveness clients across central Illinois want. In some cases, the customer simply wants Area-Wide to serve as a consultant and designer as the migration from an old--and, at times, legacy--database system to a newer platform is planned.

Among the services offered by Area-Wide are:
  • Design and support services across a variety of platforms, including Access, SQL, and other types of databases
  • Creation of a stand-alone database client or the development of a platform for use online
  • Comprehensive consulting and database support for systems written by someone other than Area-Wide
  • Complete database hosting services for clients seeking to avoid having to purchase a new, database-specific server
