We hire locally.
Our employees are hand picked from home. We hire in the Berkshires and from the Berkshires. It is important as a community to help assist and strengthen each other. That is why we pledge to HIRE LOCALLY AT ALL GOOD OPPORTUNITIES.
We know what we are doing (kind of).
Though we make use of some open source libraries, our applied systems are NOT open source!
Open source solutions can be good IF you are a programmer and can understand the implications of shared information and the importance of timely patching and security updating. When owning a website, it is not recommended that you do this. Just because everyone is doing it, doesn't mean its smart.
The components of our websites are veted and the main construct is done in a way that ensures security. We incorporate these into a custom built system that is not freely distributed through out the internet. How we do it is our secret so if someone wants to compromise our system, it will not be as easy as looking up a known vulnerability.

Our technology is today's technology.
Specializing in websites that are easy for even non-technical owners to manage, we are always developing to suit the needs of our clients in the most efficient and productive manner possible.
We are not "site spinners" - we believe in long term relationships.
Not being a part of an unfortunately growing industry of reselling open source website software like WordPress or Drupal, means that we ACTUALLY DEVELOP and that gives us a real competitive edge when it comes to custom solutions. We REALLY CAN build what you want.
Many of our clients have been with us for a decade or more!
We believe in education.
