Web Design & Development
We are web technology specialists
"Despite the shift of press attention to other Internet technologies, the communication power in website technology is advancing even faster than it did in the late nineties."
We expect you have used sites like Amazon®, Google®, Facebook® and other popular online services. GORGES uses web and mobile technologies to create mid-sized, specialized versions of these types of websites, just for your business needs. We also use web and database technology to build business management and information systems that are not public websites, accessible only to your networks, staff, and customers.
In the last year more than 100 active clients shared their goals and needs with us. We developed their websites, databases and online applications, made their goals real, and continued to work closely with them afterwards. We also continue to share with them the exciting and emerging opportunities in web technologies. Many of our clients work with us for many years, over multiple versions and expansions of their online systems.
User Interface and Graphic Design
Websites by GORGES are dynamic and interactive. They engage visitors and move them toward client goals. For example, visitors to the Anaren website are most likely looking for specifications about a detailed product type while visitors to Unvelope engage in a more personal mission (looking for just the right greeting card). We build websites that can organize specifications or tug at your emotions. In all cases, to be successful, websites must engage busy people - people from many backgrounds. Our interface expertise and graphic skills make our clients' business and their corresponding websites real.
Business Web Apps
Internet technology has revolutionized more than the conspicuous web and mobile app technologies. Inexpensive web technology has become the interface to even the world’s largest databases. Now it is about to replace desktop technology altogether. Web versions of editors, tax filing software, and much more are either already real or about to become real.
We stay at the edge of this trend making web interfaces for marketing, for tracking almost anything, for education and training, and for many types of document management, editorial, and registration systems.
These types of web applications may not be visible to the public online, but they are very real to the businesses and organizations that use them all day. From data migration to third-party integrations we use web technologies to economically tame even the most complex projects.
Sell any type of product or service in a way that is easy for you to manage and easy for the customer to use. We have built both custom online ecommerce solutions and those utilizing open source frameworks such as Open Cart, Uber Cart and Drupal Commerce. Whether ecommerce is the whole of your business or an extension of a wider business we will work with you to find the right package.

Content Management Systems
In most of our websites the content management system (CMS) is the portal to more than page editors. We provide our clients with the tools to manage a full range of website functions, such as calendars, subscription systems, and e-commerce.
Content authoring and management technologies get constant attention at GORGES. In the past we built our own CMS and have several very specialized clients for whom we are still building out complex and custom content and editorial systems. Today we more often use our deep understanding of Content Management Systems to select and implement the CMS from Open Source communities, leveraging this advanced and cost-effective starting point on the way to a complete solution.
After building sites in several open source CMS frameworks including Joomla and Wordpress we have placed our focus on the widely used Drupal CMS - where we are an Acquia partner. We have developed our own Drupal theme and distibution that allows us to leverage the work we have done on previous projects to provide cost effective solutions to meet our client's needs.
Between our built from scratch Ruby on Rails back end systems and our Drupal packages GORGES offers sophisticated content management to match your need and your budget.
GORGES hosts most of the websites we create. This is often the most efficient and economical approach, as the same developers and administrators that created the website are responsible for keeping it live on the web 24/7. We provide a full range of secure and reliable hosting solutions on our own servers.
For many other clients, we use our deep understanding of hosting to help them select specialized or large-scale hosting services. We may then handle the deployment to these services, such as Amazon or Acquia Cloud, and then we remain in place to support their use of these complex hosting services.
