Several of our sites are used as information
sources and so we have concentrated, to some extent, on fast access
- not everyone uses a fast broadband connection. This does not mean
that you can't have your favourite graphics but we will advise you
on how large they should be, where they should be located and how
many you can probably get away with on the page. And then we will

It is important that your site is accessible
to those with visual or hearing impairment. We make every effort

We do not rely entirely on virtual testing

We offer a site updating

within a few hours - if not minutes - of receipt.
Every client is provided
with access to a personal site for their material during development
and major upgrades. Normally, in the early stages of design, several
versions of a layout may be posted to the test site so that the client
can "pick & mix" preferences. We positively encourage feedback,
both positive and negative, during development.
We can offer clients advice on setting up an
Internet account, with an ISP to suit their needs, and with the selection
of suitable hardware and software. For clients located within Scotland
we can supply direct in-house assistance with setting up an ISP account
and appropriate equipment.
& Desk Top Guides:
training for our clients' staff in accessing the Internet, Email,
News Groups and the Web. We can also offer training in updating the
client's web site.
Our training can include extensively illustrated desk top guides,
tailored to the client's own web site if required.
