Custom Application Development

Need a sophisticated application built? We have been building systems from soup to nuts for more than thirty years. This is what we were born to do and what we thrive on doing. Even if it's in a language or platform we've not yet worked with, we are quite accustomed to adapting and ramping up to speed in no time. Whatever your needs are we are confident we can fulfill them. If we feel that it's not a good fit, we will try and steer you in the right direction. We want to do right by you, one way or another.

Detailed software applications are our bread and butter. But we are NOT your run of the mill software nerds. Due to the wide breadth of experience we have enjoyed, we can help guide you down the right path to ensure your application is a sound one. We speak the language of business as well as techno-babble. Besides hiring a qualified company to do your work for you, it is critical you are able to communicate properly the terms you are so familiar with. Communication is a key component to success in this equation. This is one way we distinguish ourselves from other companies.

Ok now for some techno-babble. There are many companies out there who hire developers who are self-taught. They may be able to put something together quickly that looks good on screen, but behind the scenes won't stand the test of time. We pride ourselves on building professional, modular, object oriented code that is expandable and can be supported well into the future.

Digital Business Cards provided by Digital Accelerant

Digital Business Cards

In addition to extensive software development services we also offer digital business cards as a courtesy to our clients. Please check here to see samples of the work we have done. (Select a card from the list then click on it to see the actual working digital business card.)

The digital business cards are a "one stop shop" for your clients and potential customers to get any or all of the information you want them to have. It is your personal brand. These are actually single customized web pages that have your name, phone, email, social media links, website links and almost anything else you can imagine. We design each one from scratch with your help. They are easily shareable either by text or social media. They can be used as the sole link in your email signature, and/or a great way to get your name out at trade shows and networking events.

People have been passing out business cards at events for as long as there has been business. This is the new state of the art way to "leave a mark" on your prospective customers, and it does away with the uncertainty that your regular card will eventually get lost in the shuffle. Here are some real practical applications for it:

  • Trade Shows - When people go to a trade show they grab the first big bag they can find to fill it with as many "tchotchkes" as possible. When they come to your booth, you hand them a regular business card and they throw it in there with all the others. Contrast that with the ability for you to text them your digital card, and even for them to text a keyword to a short code (see Text Marketing) to get your card sent directly to their phone.

  • General Networking - Similar to a trade show, you might come home from a networking event with a pocket full of business cards. Most of us pile them on our desk until it gets too cluttered and then we just throw them away or stick them in a drawer. Even if you're not that person, many of your colleagues are, and that means your card has a good chance of getting ignored. However, if you have texted your card to them and they have pushed the download button, you and all of your info (including your picture) are now in their phone contacts!

  • Everyday Use - How many of us bring our business cards everywhere we go? When was the last time you wished you had one as somehow in a natural conversation with a new person, the subject of your business came up? Well as long as you have your phone with you, you have access to your digital card.

  • In Your Marketing - Imagine being a chiropractor and you have a sign on the back of your company vehicle that says: "Text pain to 77948." (This is a real client and a real working number.) When people complete that action they get your card delivered right back to their phone. This tells people that you stay up on the latest trends in technology so you must be doing the same throughout the rest of your business.

These cards look great on large screens AND phones as well. On devices with a mouse, if you hover over the buttons it will explain what each one does. These are mostly hotlinks to your website, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn pages and/or whatever social media links you supplied us. You can even have a button to link directly to your Google reviews. Clicking on the phone link from a phone will activate the user's dialer with the correct number already prepopulated. Clicking the email link will start the user's email client and prepopulate all the relevant fields. The download button (far right) will download a file to the user's device that provides a mechanism to have your information imported directly into the user's contacts.

If there is a written link, phone or email address those are hot-linked as well. Physical addresses will activate the map application to help facilitate the user in discovering your location on a Google map.

Since these are all custom tailored and are all originally designed, mobile-friendly web (landing) pages, and because there are many possible options you can get with them, (for example badges, flyers, premium text numbers, number of messages per month, etc.) we have found the best way to handle cost questions is to provide a free quote. Having said that I will say that the starting cost for just one original card (which includes hosting) is $250.00.

Text marketing has come a long way. This is possibly one of the simplest (and most impressive) ways to share your new digital card. And the cost is much lower than what you might expect. Our Platinum Digital Cards have this capability. If you text the word gabe to 21000 you will see how easy and effective it is. You will be delivered a link to my digital card along with a reminder of who I am and what I do.

Want to elevate your entire company? Get all your sales people a digital business card. Since the branding for all of them will be similar, you will get a deep discount on the second card and any more that you might need. Here are some of the options you can get with your corporate cards:

  • Main Corporate Digital Card -- This is the generic card that has all the business information on it. This is the card that the text marketing keyword typically points to.

  • Individual Sales People Cards -- Each named person will have their own link to their own card that has their name, phone and email on it.

  • Directory Page with All Card Links -- This page would have thumbnail pictures for all of your employees with links to their individual cards.

  • Lanyards and Badges -- Great for both trade shows and networking events, your card also hangs from your neck and has the text marketing keyword on it.

  • Acrylic Stand with QR Code -- At a trade show? Put one of these on your table so that passersby can simply hold their phone camera up to a QR code and it will automatically populate your text marketing keyword and number for them. Now all they have to do is click on it and press SEND.

  • Need More Stuff?? -- Tell me what it is you need and I will see how I can best support you. Don't forget we're software developers here so we can build you just about whatever you want.

Fill out the form below and submit your request and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. We look forward to a great working relationship with you.
