Sophisticated e-Stuff - Cuesta's Tag Line Since 1996
From the beginning, Cuesta's charter has been to develop sophisticated and elegant Web solutions targeted to the K-12 industry. Read on for a little bit (but not too much) geek speak...
In order to meet our goal of offering cost-effective, high-performance technology that is deployed in a customized installation, along with superb ongoing consultative service and signification ROI opportunity for our clients, Cuesta developed a "server side" application that works hand-in-hand with the Web server to interpret the HTML files that comprise the Web site.
Cuesta's Master's and PhD level programmers are easily able to include complex routines and conditional elements in the code that define a Web site without having to add separate complex scripts, or use limited vendor-specific applications. In this way, our developers can build Web applications -- not just collections of linked Web pages -- in a very short time, leading to very cost-effective solutions for our clients. In addition, upgrading the site with new features or design "make-overs" can be done without completely re-developing the site.
Best yet is that since we offer custom services, we never have to say no to a desired feature or functionality request. The answer is always, "Yes! We can do that!" This is true for both the front and back-end of the Web site. Cuesta's content management system allows non-technical marketing staff to manage the site with facility. Unlike many companies, our clients find they don't need a team of Web masters to update the site with ease, any time they wish. They enjoy our Sophisticated e-Stuff well before their site goes live and are delighted and amazed by the power they have at their fingertips. Cuesta clients have Cuesta behind them all the way, 24/7, every day of the year.
Let's Talk About e-Stuff - 408-376-2001
Client History: Newbridge Publishing & Sundance Publishing- www.Newbridge Online, www.SundancePub.com
Newbridge and Sundance are sister companies with a shared history. In June of 2000, Sundance Publishing heard our presentation at the Association of Education Publishers conference. They were intrigued by the e-commerce system we demonstrated and sent us the RFP that had been sent to several developers. When we were awarded the contract, they told us that they loved the idea of working with developers who had extensive backgrounds in education and print catalogs, so we got to work and launched the site before the end of the year.
They were so happy with the results, that they returned to us in late 2001 and began talking to us about a new site for Newbridge Publishing. Cuesta studied the requirements and came up with a plan to help them save money but using a similar template but different design and the same database. The Newbridge site launched in 2002.
The sites have a lot of content, and would normally require two Webmasters to keep them going. But because the back-end of each system is identical, they have a single Webmistress assigned to the two sites.
