What is the difference between a WEBMACHINE and a web package?
A WEBMACHINE is a software system service created by web developers from the best commercial CMS (Content Management System) software applications and components available on the market. Used in conjunction with an interface designed by graphic designers to create a unique, professional website presence for businesses to lease. The WEBMACHINE operates in a continuously monitored environment, upgraded and enhanced for optimal security and performance for the WEBMACHINE client.
A web package is a pre designed CMS template that is used to accommodate a businesses branding, imagery and content. Most web packages are a one off purchase and not responsive to mobile and other web devices. Once they are launched online they are not maintained to latest software upgrades and security standards or maintained with SEO enhancements.
Why would my business benefit from a WEBMACHINE?
Businesses cannot afford to be without a web professional presence. Traditional forms of business advertising (print classifieds and Yellow Pages) are losing their reach and google search results and social media marketing are taking their place. It takes ongoing management to keep your business ahead of competition.
Many business owners do not have the time, resources or skillsets to professionally design and maintain a commercial website. To ensure content is correct and current, software is continuously upgraded, the latest security patches are applied and ongoing SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) maintenance is undertaken. WEBMACHINES are a professional solution for businesses requiring a high quality website or online shop for the competitive digital environment.

Upon payment of your WEBMACHINE you will be required to complete our online briefing document. Your order will be prioritised to ensure all the briefing elements are received and of a standard to allow our developers and designers to proceed with the system build. At this time a designer will contact you to set up an over the phone or face to face appointment to discuss the WEBMACHINE design, functionality and content strategy best suited for your business. It usually takes between 5 - 10 business days to provide your WEBMACHINE preview for feedback. Once the final preview is approved, the system is then refined, tested and mounted for launch.
