Technology is at the Core of Everything We Do

WordPress Websites, iPhone & Android Mobile Apps

Building online solutions for all businesses since 2008

We have our origins as a pure play technology company, delivering bespoke applications to our early clients. Building your website on the foundation of WordPress, our most common platform for web development, is an excellent choice.

Some of The Advantages:

  • WordPress currently powers over 28% of the internet, including many high profile sites such as Time Magazine. WordPress powers over 47% of CMS (content management system) websites on the internet.
  • Themes allow you to change the look and feel of your site easily.
  • Plugins allow you to add features to your web site.
  • WordPress sites are easy to update. If you can create a Word document, you can publish a new article in WordPress.
  • WordPress is supported by a thriving, engaged community.
  • Google loves WordPress sites and ranks them highly when built properly.

Training, Education, and Communication

We will provide training on how to use your web site to designated users. Typically it takes a few hours to become familiar with how new content is added, depending on the users comfort with general web site functions. Get stuck? No worries – technical assistance is simply an email or phone call away. We also provide online training videos integrated into the site backend that explain how to perform common tasks.

We utilize Basecamp and an internal proprietary tool to track project tasks and ongoing communication so you stay well informed and we have a record of all our conversations regarding your requests in one place that is accessible by our entire team and yours as we work together.

Proven Value – Experience and Expertise Not Found Elsewhere

In today’s business world, more than ever, we need to make wise decisions about how and where to spend our money. Does going with the lowest hourly rate, really save money? Not if they take 2-3 times as long to accomplish the job or they don’t have the expertise to even get the job done. Our advice is truly based on years of experience combined with the know how of the latest advancements.

It’s amazing how many times ThePixel is hired to clean up a mess left by a previous developer. We find that the lack of experience of many developers often sent them in the wrong direction and cost the client thousands of dollars. Even some initial advice around choosing the right technology to work on could have helped the project if we had been involved early on.

Website & User Interface Design

User-centered design approach for the delivery of all our solutions from websites to mobile apps

Iowa_Website_UserInterface_Design

ThePixel is a Web Design Company and we utilize a user-centered design approach for the delivery of all our solutions (Websites, Intranets, Software Solutions, Mobile Apps) in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Our design philosophy revolves around what the intended users need or what their limitations are. At all stages of the design process and solution development we’re talking directly to the users, focusing on what they want, to make sure that we will deliver upon their requirements. Our solutions are optimized for the users and we’re constantly thinking on how they are going to use a website or software product instead of forcing them to change their behavior and adapt to the product.

Content Management Systems

Easily manage content on your website or Intranet without any technical knowledge

There was a time when if you wanted to change a line of content you required the skills of a web developer. Thankfully this is no longer the case with the development and evolution of Web Content Management Systems.

At ThePixel we have been building Content Management Systems for our clients for nearly a decade. A Content Management System or CMS allows website administrators to easily manage content on a website without any technical knowledge. A CMS will provide the ability to control the full content publications life cycle from creation, editing moderating, publishing, archiving and deleting. Content in the context of a CMS means text, images, audio, video documents and these content types can be presented and published in the form of blog posts, events, image galleries, news items publications or even products.
