Web Development and Management

From basic web sites to interactive complex web sites to business database systems or configuration of open source web solutions to meet your business needs, System Horizons can help your business or organisation fulfil its needs and make the best out of the available technology. System Horizons produce clear and clean web designs, with an emphasis on readability and usability. Basic custom graphics can be incorporated in this, but if you need a more intensely designed site, System Horizons can work with a graphic designer to develop your site.

System Horizons speciality is in data solutions and the deployment and customisation of open source solutions. The Open Source community provides a wealth of functionality that can be incorporated into sites without needing to build custom bespoke solutions. From blogs and forums to calendars and custom content displays, System Horizons can help you select the right solutions for your business needs and implement them with testing and training as required.

Web Development

System Horizons specialism is in the building, configuration and deployment of Drupal websites.  Drupal has a wealth of modules offering a wide range of comprehensive functionality natively within the framework and by integrating with external services.  Drupal is a Content Management Framework allowing you to update content, images and key data without requiring development input.  We can also provide training on how to update different parts of your site.

Drupal's flexibility supports detailed data relationships allowing you to reduce duplication and error and present the information to your audiences in the various different ways they need it.

Web Maintenance and Management

System Horizons can offer any level of support for your web site from just being on hand to call on if things are too difficult to handle yourself to a full wraparound service.  As an example of the service we provide:

For £15 (£10 for charities, etc) per month we will:

  • Keep your web domain renewed
  • Provide hosting
  • Regularly backup your site
  • Apply security and other recommended updates to the Drupal software to ensure your site is secure and benefiting from the latest improvements.
  • Handle a reasonable number of minor requests (i.e. queries or small jobs taking less than 10 minutes) on the management or updating of your website or email service.

For full support including updating your content, this will be more.  If you want to do more of this yourself, then we are happy to negotiate a suitable rate that just gives you the support you need at a price you can afford.
