Over 250 successful websites & applications and counting...
i-KOS are a full-service digital agency, with a decade's experience of technical expertise behind us. As individuals we have 50 years+. It's fair to say therefore, that we have the collective knowledge to ensure your website or application gets the very best attention.
We love to plan, design and build websites that are easy to implement and maintain. i-KOS focus on the user experience when planning any website and this carries through to how we build the sites and what functionality will help to make a website deliver for its users.
Web Applications and Rich Media
Today's web is about providing the best experience for the user and about interacting with multiple systems. Things that were specialised development projects five years ago are now taken for granted. It's just expected that your website will integrate with Twitter, Facebook and their counterparts. Google provides amazing free tools that you can use to enhance your site with maps and geolocation technology. Content management systems were just an enterprise level necessity back in 2000 - now even the smallest site can be managed by you - not the agency.
Our Chosen Technology - Drupal
We've been down the road of creating our own proprietary systems and enjoyed the benefits of generating income from license fees. However that business model, in our opinion, is over. The rate of change in the web 'industry' means that even a large agency cannot sustain this approach. As William (Bill) Bernbach; a legendary figure in the history of American advertising said; "A principle is not a principle until it costs you money."
In 2008 we began the complete migration from developing our own CMS (SiteSolved) to join the Open Source Drupal platform and abandon the license model we had spent the previous eight years building. Today all of our web development projects are built on Drupal; one of the world's leading web application platforms with the large development community who, together, continuously improving the product. For i-KOS, it's like having a team of 1000 developers. Drupal is a flexible platform that allows us to achieve almost any desired result on the web.
Our mantra is now "if you understand what you want to achieve, it's usually possible". Clear understanding of the problem is the most important thing - not the technical implementation.
Many of our projects now call for integration with other systems. We have successfully completed integration projects with Adobe Air and various commercial and bespoke Accounting and Stock Inventory (inc. MRP and ERP systems)
