WEB DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
GSWS has been developing websites since 1994. We’ve seen a lot of things come and go over the years, but despite the evolution and changes, the constant over these years is an understanding that each project is as unique as the client themselves. We’ve developed a specific methodology towards development that makes the client’s needs unique, but still follow a proven, adaptable and long-term approach to ensure it’s success.
Currently, a majority of the websites develop are built using WordPress. Other frameworks we are familiar with include Joomla, Drupal, and some Symfony.
For examples of websites we’ve developed, check out our client portfolio. For a more detailed analysis on certain clients, take a look at the client case studies we’ve posted.
WHAT IS WORDPRESS?
WordPress is an open-source Content Management System (CMS) originally designed for blogging, but has evolved to be one of the most popular ways to build a website. Features include an intuitive administration section, making it easy to publish and manage text and media (images, pdfs, videos, etc.). It’s been developed with a search engine friendly architecture, and offers a vast resource of plug-ins, making it very scalable and easy to manage at the same time.
Website designs are optimized for the mobile environment as much as traditional desktops and we will design a theme that compliments your branding. When completed, this gives your website a unique identity, all the power of the WordPress framework and optimized for search engines and social media.

Contact Us for a Free Consultation
One core service we provide are Managed IT Services. As an organization or company, you depend on computers (and technology) for your data being available and safe.
For as long as we have been building websites, we have been offering hosting services. What started as simple website hosting and email services has evolved over the years as much as the Internet itself has.
SECURITY & COMPLIANCE
Website security is possibly today’s most overlooked aspect of securing the enterprise and should be a priority in any organization.
There’s much more, but these are the highlights. There are literally hundreds of plugins that extend what WordPress does, so the actual functionality is nearly limitless.
All services are monitored, managed and backed up to regulatory compliance standards or a clients preference – whichever standard is higher.
POST LAUNCH SERVICES
Once a website is completed, so begins the operation of running it. Examples of post-launch responsibilities include hosting, updating (content and security updates), social media management, email newsletters and campaigns. GSWS can help support or fully manage your post-launch needs.
Building, managing and marketing a website can make one wear a lot of hats. As a GSWS client you can hire us to assist or ask questions that other providers might not have time, resources, knowledge or maybe permission to answer. It’s always good to have that additional degree of support available. If you would like to learn how our Managed Hosting Service might benefit your organization, please contact us. We offer a free, no-obligation initial consultation, and look forward to speaking with you.
