Bringing Form and Function Together

Making your site look good should not force you to sacrifice functionality and maintainability.

Our Latest Project

This project was already using a selected theme which had lots of restrictions in content rendering (we build our own themes  so your not locked into any one design.)  By applying generous CSS customizations, we were able to achieve the look the AKA Management was after.

It incorporated a Slider, Service Description, Interfaced with a 3rd party Registration system, Product Descriptions, About Us Section, Testimonials, Product Links and a Contact Us page.

Planning for your Project’s Success

In your initial phase of construction, you should select a technically solid platform that allows extensive customization and integration possibilities and scales as your company grows. Your goal should be to understand all of your options, avoid the pitfalls of WordPress, and still capitalize on it’s strengths. That is what we bring to the table. This is a good way to deploy a solid WordPress framework on a solid hosting platform with top of the line security.

Once you have the web site’s basic feature set established, eCommerce Setup with a pilot set of products is usually next – during this time, your store is usually not made public. If you do not have a web storefront, then your next steps depend on your goals: you can move directly to marketing efforts such as Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Social Media Connectivity or you might need to integrate your Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system first. Finally, for projects with eCommerce sites, Store Configuration,  Product Population, and Product SEO is last.

Our Services are delivered in Phases:

  1. Conceptualize, organize, and deliver a compelling website on a solid platform.
  2. SEO and on-line marketing strategy, eCommerce setup and CRM integration.
  3. Store configuration, Inventory control processes, and Product import.

Form and Function – Together

“Form and Function – Together” is our new slogan. Too often, web developers fail to deliver the technology needed to enable the business owner to take command of their own website.

Is Data Design Resources an established company?

Our History

Data Design Resources has been around as a company since 1992. But it was a Sole Proprietorship serving only to keep James busy between Software Engineering jobs. Working as a consultant, under Data Design Resources, James constructed systems for the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, Stop and Shop, and Cape Cod E-Com. James saw the advent of the Internet and was among one of it’s earliest users. He coded a web Travel Site in 1998 for Alitia and one of the Internet’s first Marketplace platforms in 2001 – which was launched before it’s rival, Amazon.

But his time with Cape Cod E-Com saw his initiation into delivering websites for small companies wishing to bring their shop’s wares to the Internet. And E-Commerce is still his passion. Teaming with graphic artists, has always been the model in the past but as he says: “Today there are so many sources for quality art and design on the Internet – the most important skill is the technical know-how to put it all together. “Form” is everywhere. “Function” is what is lacking in most cases. I let the customer tell me what they would like to see in their website. From suggestion, we provide multiple ideas that they can choose from to make the statement they want to deliver.

If we need to design forms that stand apart, we certainly can do that. We partner with artists when we need to but today its usually not required. Entire collections of artwork are now catalogued on the Internet and we can secure rights to these designs for our clients.

What ways to you make your site's standout?

Our Mission

Our Mission: To offer website development services at a reasonable price, that make your sites look professional, without sacrificing quality and short-cutting functionality.

Data Design Resources has a philosophy that drives it’s deliverables. Bringing Form and Function Together. That incentivizes us to devise ways that make the customer experience with their website, more enjoyable and easier to fit into their workday. Engaging with data from a company’s public-facing website should become part of the day-to-day operation of a business – BUT it should be easy to do and take minimal effort.

James likes to use the concept of opportunity-cost when explaining the real cost of having a website: “If you need to spend hours a day trying to figure out how to add a new product to your website, the cost of that one task, in terns of the value of your own time, just consumed much of the value of the future profit of adding the product to your on-line catalog.” Tasks need to be easy to do – simplifying processes is a core part of how Data Design Resources can bring real value to companies looking to do business on the web.
