A company's web site is often the first point of contact for any prospective customer; it is therefore a vital asset to any business or venture. Here at The Solutions Factory we believe that the design should be simple, clear and easy to read and navigate. We also believe that the design should be customer led. Your brand is unique and your website must reflect that.
The Solutions Factory develops websites on PCs using HTML, PHP, ASP and .NET. Programs used include Macromedia Dreamweaver, Macromedia Fireworks, Adobe Photoshop. We have developed our own content management system which will give you full access to edit your website. Unlike other content management systems ours is lightweight and flexible and we can design bespoke applications to the site. We have also designed a unique multilanguage platform which is easy to update. Facilities that require pages to be generated automatically such as emails in response to contact requests are created using Active Server Pages. The site must be hosted at an Internet Service Provider who can support this.
Websites today are not only viewed on a desktop monitor but also on a laptop, a pad and a phone, in the office, at home or on the move. Not to mention the different types of web browsers which could be used, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera and many more. We can design the website so that it is responsive, that is easily read and navigated with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling on any format or we could design the website for a monitor and also have a mobile only site, such as we currently use for The Solutions Factory website. The Solutions Factory is ready to build a cross-platform app, if your business requires it.
Here are some examples of the websites that we have designed over the years.
Llandysul and Pont Tyweli Community website
West Wales Panels and Groundworks
|Stori Fawr Dre-fach Felindre
This local group of volunteers have collected over 1000 images which they have uploaded to the People's Collection Wales website. However they wanted their own website for more information and which would link to their collection on the national website.
The website is fully responsive and is powered by our Content Management System and is bilingual.
The Ededa J is a ladies fashion shop in Newcastle Emlyn. They needed a website to show a taste of the collections which they have in their shop.
This is a fully responsive webiste, powered by The Solutions Factory content managemen system and is bilingual.
|The Long Barn
Bunkhouse Accommodation at Penrhiw Farm
The Long Barn bunkhouse is available for large groups to hire at affordable rates. There are also two other units available to hire at this organic farm.
The website is fully responsive and is powered by our Content Management System. Behind the scenes, the website also incorporates a booking system and the booked dates are shown on the Availability calendar on the public website. This is a neat and affordable option for small accommodation providers who want their booking calendar to be part of their website so they no longer need to use third party software which is often the case.
The Pasold Research Fund
|Modal Group Ltd: Transport Planning and Consultancy
We have redesigned and updated the website for this Cumbrian based company. Using the Solutions Factory's own content managment system this website is also responsive.
|Cyngor Cymuned Llandysul | Llandysul Community Council
Cyngor Bro Llangeler | Llangeler Community Council
Both these Community Councils needed a website to fulfil their duties as public bodies.
The websites are:
powered by the Solutions Factory content managment system
uploading the council minutes is quick for the Clerks
|Dan'i Sang Chinese Takeaway and Restaurant
This company is based in Llandysul and the business has really taken off.
This website is very busy at weekends especially on tablets and mobile phones. The website design incorporates a mobile design too.
JonJu Tech Ltd
JonJu Tech wanted a very clean, simple looking website which is easy to navigate and is optimised for search engines. Originally this website used the Joomla CMS but we updated it to use our own Solutions Factory Content Management System.
Old Vicarage Cottage
The Old Vicarage cottage is a three star self catering cottage in North Carmarthenshire. The cottage is surrounded by an acre of landscape garden created by the owners. It is essential that the website is thoroughly optimised for search engines as holiday accommodation in West Wales is incredibly competitive. Working in partnership with the owners the optimisation of hte website will be an ongoing process.
|Inflatable Packers International Ltd
Based in Australia , IPI produce inflatable packers for the use in various industries from geotechnical to drilling. This is the second version of the website which we have developed with IPI. This time we have used the Joomla! content management system which IPI administrators will be able to update whereever they are in the world, so long as they have an internet connection. The site is also available in Spanish.
Pwerdy: Canolfan Cymunedol a Chelfyddydau / Powerhouse: Community and Arts Centre
The Pwerdy, Pont Tyweli, restored for use as a community and arts centre will provide a variety of activities for local people, ranging from arts to IT to films. There is also opportunity of hire the building and its equipment.
The website uses the open source Joomla! content management system which is easily updateable from any web browser by the client. As well as designing the website The Solutions Factory has set up the Twitter page and the Facebook fan page. Training to use the website, Twitter and Facebook was part of the package.
Typoeth Cottage is a self catering holiday cottage not far from Llandysul. We used the open source Joomla! content management system to build this site so that the site owner is easily able to update the site whenever and wherever she wants to.
