Example Client Projects

Explore some of the ways a professional approach with open source software can solve problems and address needs:

Rustin Levenson Art Conservation Associates

Rustin Levenson has a world class art conservation business based in New York and Miami. But the firm had a home-grown website that was short on content and did not reflect their professionalism.

The new site at ArtCareNYC.com has a slide show of their staff in action, links to news stories they have been featured in, and lists of their books and publications. Now visitors get an accurate impression of a prominent and authoritative source for information and service.

 

 

 

Associated Photo & Imaging FTP Site

Problem:

This digital photo service lab was receiving large files directly to its internal server by FTP. Besides security issues, the DSL connection they used for their own email and internet access was easily overwhelmed. Speed ground to a halt and dropped connections sometimes resulted in corrupted files and frustrated clients.

Solution:

By moving the FTP service to an offsite host, Associated's clients are assured of a high availability connection 24/7, while Associated's Internet connection is never bogged down regardless of how many clients may be sending files at the same time. With easy user and password management, help screens, and a FAQ page, files flow smoothly now.

Elect Janet Launcelott

Janet Launcelott, running for re-election to the South Miami City Commission, built a web presence using the Drupal Content Management System (or CMS). The site lets her give up to the minute information throughout the campaign. The Contact form provides a channel for communication from supporters and prospective voters. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ubiquity Internet Marketing Services

Ubiquity web site

 

Ubiquity Internet Marketing Services is an example of how a simple brochure can become an engaging website. Instead of a static document the viewer is presented with an interactive one that promotes interest and curiousity. And of course a Contact form is a must for connecting with potential clients.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Mystic Trumpeter

 

Jazz musician Jerry Marshall wanted a way to share his flip side as a channeler of spiritual wisdom, and to promote his forthcoming book. He needed a web presence, but something simple and flexible that could evolve over time and allow blog entries.

The resulting blog, The Mystic Trumpeter, is an example of how the free tools provided by Blogger can be used to create a site that merges static content and blog entries, and can be easily modified and rearranged.

Best of all, development was quick and inexpensive, and monthly hosting fees are nonexistent.
