The community of of open source software developers has grown to epic proportions over recent years and consequently there is a multitude of free software available to the public.  For those of you who are not familiar with open source software, it is just like the name says, all code written is open for the public to see and scrutinize and these developers rely on donations from the public to fund their projects.  Microsoft on the other hand hides the code to all of their software and charges dearly for their software.

We spend a great deal of time researching support, user base, cost and required implementation time for our clients before we recommend or choose any solution for their web needs.  One resource we use is an open source enterprise-level content management system that elegantly handles high-traffic corporate situations such as the website for Walla Walla University in Walla Walla, Washington.  By using this open source solution, we are able to provide amazing features at a fraction of the cost as those who use proprietary solutions.  For example, those using Microsoft Content Management Server are paying anywhere from $6999 to $24999 for a single installation of the software.

Because of our research and expertise in the web development field, we are able to consistently produce high-end sites without the overhead charges passed on to you by most other web development companies.  If you have a project we could possibly help you on, we'd love to hear from you!
