Web Site Design and Development
Create IT is based in Blenheim, and provides web development and design services throughout Marlborough and New Zealand.
Web Site Development
Web site development is all about the technical side of putting a web site together so that it functions as intended. This is different from design which is more concerned with how a site looks.
Create IT has a strong background in web development services. With years of experience in database software development, we are able to build the infrastructure for very large sites, yet at the other end of the scale if you need a small site with content that doesn't change, we can build that as well.
Web Site Design
Create IT provides simple, functional designs that won't win any design awards, but will provide you with a fast, presentable web site.
Our web sites are built to web standards as far as possible, and web sites are tested for consistency on a number of different web browsers and operating systems. If you are shopping around for a web developer, you should check to see whether they produce sites that are compliant with HTML and CSS standards. This gives you more certainty of consistency and functionality regardless of what visitors to your site use
If you want a killer design we have a close partnership with The Marketing Department, for graphic design, copy writing, market research and much more.
If you already have a graphic designer, we're also quite happy to work with them using our extensive experience of what functions on the web.
Web Content Management Systems
A content management system (CMS) puts you in control of your web site.
Many web designers now use third party CMS, but Create IT has developed one from scratch and continues to refine it based on customer feedback. The Webpression content management system provides a web based system which enables you to easily edit content on your own site. You can edit all critical parts of your site, add new pages and keep your site ranked highly with search engines, without having to pay anything to make changes.
The system supports a variety of addon functionality such as mapping, and email newsletters.
While a content management system may cost more initially, over time it can save you a lot of money by allowing you to maintain your site yourself. If you get a quote for a web site that does not include a CMS you should be asking why not.
If you need an online shopping cart, we are able to get you up and running very rapidly with prebuilt third party ecommerce software. As a developer, we are able to extend and enhance the functionality of this software to suit your own specific needs. Create IT works primarily with Miva Merchant shopping cart software, which is able to be integrated with Quickbooks accounting software.
We do a whole lot more than just build web sites. We can register domain names on your behalf, and can set up email services on your network so that all your users have domain mailboxes. If you're looking to run an intranet, we can build and install a dedicated server with necessary software to meet your needs.
