Cuesta: The Premier Web Developer for the Education Industry
Cuesta is different from most Web development companies. We come to the Web and Internet "platforms" with a background steeped in education, computer science and user-interface design. As educational software developers, we are known throughout the industry as experts in Websites for education publishers and vendors. We are proud of our reputation as the education industry's premier Web developer.
We regularly attend education conferences and networking events such as EdNet and AEP/AAP. We are early adopters of the LRMI (Learning Resource Metadata Initiative) and are prepared to implement technologies for our clients that will allow them to take advantage of tagging systems when the time is right. Because of our advanced database technologies, our clients will be able to implement these features with relative ease, unlike many publishers who will have to start from scratch.
Cuesta can also provide freelance services such as proofreading, catalog copy, content editing and social media marketing. We offer development of lessons/activities for textbook and supplemental book publishers. Experienced with both print and Web-based materials, our staff is composed of seasoned professionals who are well connected in the education publishing and ed-tech communities. Some of us even venture into the classroom as substitute teachers from time to timein order to refresh our memories about what a teacher's day is really like, and to take a closer look at school purchasing requirements.
Cuesta's Web Marketing Services: What We Can Do For You
Client History: National Geographic Children's Books- www.NGChildrensBooks.org
A big company such as National Geographic sometimes has to look beyond its own resources to get things done for its smaller divisions in a timely fashion. Cuesta had developed a Website for Natinoal Geographic's School division in the late '90s, so in 2000, when they needed a reliable Web developer for their Children's Books division, they turned to Cuesta.
Cuesta had a proven history for providing nearly 100% "uptime", something that was very important to National Geographic. They needed a product and author database, and the ability to integrate correlations they received from a 3rd party correlations provider directly into their product pages. Further, it was important to them that their customers be able to search for products and find the correlations as well as to search for specific state standards and find products that met them. Along the way, their database manager moved on. When they told us about their dilemma, we said, "let us do that for you". Because many of Cuesta's team are educators, it was an easy task for us to take on. We understand their needs, we understand their products and series structure, and we were happy to do it. We are proud of our nearly 15-year relationship with National Geographic.
We chose to work with Cuesta because of their unique understanding of how schools and libraries make purchase decisions. Two websites and six years later, we continue to be very pleased with their level of client service."
