Business Mobile Apps
If you are keen to build a business App that pulls data from a website we can help you. We have built various systems that can move data around so there is one entry point.
Here is a simple example - this Hearing Aids Brisbane site is listing prices from Hearing Aid Prices site which was the first site in Australia to list prices of hearing aids across major brands. A disruptive innovative approach that was first to market.
The data is only entered in one central location and is sent to various sites. We excited to be working on an App version. In technical terms the advent of major Social Media sites means APIs and data a now designed to go anywhere. We use those same techniques for your mobile App.

Email + Shortlinks
Fed up with multiple systems and multiple logins just to send an email to your valuable clients?
Our system allows you to manage your entire customer base from your website back end. Send a link and measure how many hits it gets. See who opens your email - add a note to a client. Ask for something specific like recording customers who have downloaded a document.
All on highly optimised private secure servers - ensuring your emails are sent from your domain name.
Write an article and send it to all of your clients with a few clicks and only one login.
Need help with any of this functionality? Call the developer directly for help.
People within a business need to know the availability of others. For example a growing building inspection and termite control team needs to know when they can book two independent tradesmen for a dual inspection.
Sure you can do it the old way by ringing around and finding the best available time. However by the time you have got back to the customer she has booked with someone else who could give an instant time and date.
Our custom interactive calendars on your website allow anyone to see the availability of anyone else on the calendar. It works flawlessly - never makes a mistake even when two people book at exactly the same time! It is built to suit your business and works on your website from a simple login.
Problem solved two seperate entities can make a confirmed booking on behalf of the other on the spot.
The Marine Centre uses our booking system to book schools into it's Marine Discovery Centre. If you check the calendar it only shows available days.
Our Next Generation Blog
As an SEO and web developer it is nice to create a tool that helps clients get more from their blogs (news article posts).
Our latest tool gives insights into the number of views and popular pages on your blog. Web statistics are not new but how the data is presented can give you insights into what is performing and why.
Our next project is to create sites that talk to the visitor based on what they visit on the site. A good blog system with well written and researched articles would allow you to create specific calls to action should a user be interested in a certain topic or product.
Search engines like Google already have very advanced systems like this - but what if you could tell that the visitor that just subscribed had spent quite a bit of time researching Product A - you could call them and discuss it - or you could offer them something that interests them on their next visit without lifting a finger.
This is not new but what is new for our best every system is that it is intuitive to use, fun to analyse and can save time.

Creating a Mobile Friendly Web Application
We have long been proud of our Content Management System.
Making it adaptable to any business requirement and evolving adds power and flexibility.
A client asked us to create a system where they could automatically create PDF orders online for thier suppliers whilst out it the field. They loved the system but then asked can it be easier to use from a mobile phone?
We adapted our existing system to detect if it was beeing accessed by a mobile or handheld device and make the content easy to operate on a small screen.
After all the hype on mobile devices in recent years it is really only now (when more people actually have latest the phones and can afford to use them on competitive plans) when web content should be made for different environments on the fly.
This system can be applied to many industries. It allows you to place your information on any website.
Check the Invisible Hearing Aid Prices Brisbane page that is actually retrieving data from Hearing Aid Prices website - one set or data going to various locations on any device.
That information could be live bookings, homes for sale, products for sale but it is managed from one source.
One example is an accommodation booking calendar that could be placed on any website.
Can you think up another application of this, that would give you a competitive advantage?
- It is part of our in house content management system (not the one size fits all variety)
- Can be combined with almost any system
- Can be distributed to many websites with no special code required
- Super fast and efficient
- Can include affiliates and commissions
Co-ordination Google Calendars with your website and business
Google calendars are rich in functionality and can be effectively utilised to enhance your business.
They can even send free SMS notifications to you.
We have a new time saving Contractor Management System that includes the following functionality-:
- Book multiple contractors on multiple jobs
- Individual contractors logins and management
- Free SMS notification and online booking co-ordinated with Google Calendars
- Manage equipment
- Order products automatically from your suppliers based on a specific job
- Record hours and create automatic invoices in pdf
Accommodation Booking System
We have developed a system that allows a booking system to be developed and placed on an infinite number of websites. It is completely interactive without page refreshes and super fast.
Hence from one central location you can manage your bookings and place them on different websites.
We think this is great because it increases the exposure without any additional work from the people maintaining the Q1 rooms.
Integrating Google Maps
Google Maps can be added to sites - they can also be automated and programmed.
An example of this is GoldCoastAccommodationOnline.com that has a gold coast accommodation map that is configured via our Content Management System and allows the map to be updated without any knowledge of programming or code.
You simply enter the longatude and lattitude (via another website) and it updates. We can also automate images into the map that do not require any knowledge of image programs to operate.
The Marine Centre Temperate Zone Integrates Google Maps v3 with clustering and panoramic images of locations in a pop-up fancybox.
Virtual Tours - With Google Maps and Flash
One area is VR and panoramic images - perfect for a real-estate site.
this is shot using a good quality tripod and a Nikon SLR digital camera - the images are stiched together and integrated into a Google Map. Check the live version of the Marine Centre Virtual Tour
