Our Mission

Creating a web site is not magic, but it can be magical. A well-designed web site can boost your company’s sales, services, local and worldwide presence. At Internet Solutions, our web design staff can create a site which will help your company accomplish its goals. We are sensitive to budget and other concerns you may have. Following are our 5 steps for a successful web site plan. Step up to a great website!

Step 1: Call Internet Solutions (870) 930-9056 and ask for one of our web professionals, Jim Martin or Barry Rogers. We will help your company develop a web strategy for today and the future.

Step 2: A web site can be many things. It can be your initial contact with a potential customer or could be recourse for existing customers. Most likely it will be both and much more. Deciding on web site content is very important and must take into consideration the many types of web design programming services offered by ISI. For example, your site could contain Java, JavaScript, Perl, PHP, Dynamic HTML, databases, E-commerce, Front Page extensions, CGI programs**, embedded or streaming audio and video. We can design a web site with only the basics or a full-blown site for selling products with secure on-line transactions.

**CGI Scripts and other custom programs or software written by Internet Solutions remains the property of Internet Solutions, Inc. License is granted to the client for the use of this software on an individual web site for as long as the web site remains hosted with Internet Solutions, Inc.

Step 3: Once you have decided on web content and developed a concept for your site. We will combine this with a hosting plan and domain registration services. At this point, we will produce a printed mock-up of your site and present estimated pricing for the package. Once the design and pricing are agreed upon we will request a down payment of 50% of the estimated price for the site and will immediately begin production.

Step 4: Effective communication is a powerful tool for any company. That is why it is very important to clearly communicate what you want known about your company’s mission, product, and services. It is crucial to gather pertinent information such as contacts and e-mail addresses, company information, product listings, logos and graphics, and any other elements to be included in your site. The more complete the content information you provide, the more quickly your site will be completed.

In order for Internet Solutions to effectively communicate your company’s purpose to a worldwide audience, someone from your company must first convey the information to us.

To ensure a successful web site, we will help you develop a strategy to promote your site to your employees and to your customers. Some things you can do are assign e-mails to department heads or key personnel, make sure all correspondence from the web site is being answered and returned, and place your domain name on all business cards, advertising, correspondence, etc. As part of the web-hosting fee, Internet Solutions will make sure your site is entered in over 200 search utilities on a monthly basis, and will also help you develop keywords for your site, making it more likely search engines will find your site.

Step 5: Call Internet Solutions (870) 930-9056 and ask for one of our web professionals, Jim Martin or Barry Rogers. We will help your company develop a web strategy for today and the future.

Custom Software

Software is opening new doors of opportunity to today’s businesses in terms of productivity, efficiency, and profitability. If you are currently using out-of-date or difficult to use software, your business may be missing out on many of the cost savings that automation can achieve. Don’t struggle with a system that doesn’t really meet your needs—our software developers can use your existing data to build a system that is truly integrated with your business.

The first step is considering your business needs. This is where off-the-shelf software products often fall short. Unfortunately, many software products force you to think like a programmer and don’t make sense for your business. Too many times the software has tons of features that your business doesn’t need, but is weak on the items that would really enable you to be productive. If your current system isn’t living up to your expectations, we can help!

We can take your expectations and present options for making software that fits those needs. Our team can also make suggestions on how to make technology work for you without requiring you to be a computer guru.

 

Consulting

At Internet Solutions, we realize that quality software is critical to your business. Depending on in-house experience alone can lead to software plagued with problems which translates into lost time and money. We can offer support services to your projects to eliminate the problems created by the loss of key employees, insufficient skills, or lack of resources.

When making a decision on whether to perform software development in-house or leverage on an experienced provider, consider the following questions:

If my key programmer leaves, what will happen?
Has an initial design been done and an accurate estimate given?
Is the software on schedule and is it being tracked against the original estimate?
Are there any checks to guarantee the software is of high quality?
What would happen if the developer’s machine crashed—are you protected?
Are my programmers following industry standards or is the software ad hoc?
Does my development team have the resources and experience to do the job right?
How would you know if they didn’t?

If you are uneasy about the answers to some of these questions, we can consult with you on ways in which Internet Solutions can put your mind at ease. Whether we develop your software or help you develop it, our goal is the same—to provide the talent and experience necessary to give you the business solutions you deserve.
