Wouldn’t you say that websites are meant for everyone.

We know every person is different, from the way they see things to the way they analyse them. Our differences do not make us less than the next person; web accessibility has ensured that, at… Read more

2020 came in like an uninvited guest and brought along unprecedented conditions that the whole world continues to cope with.

To say that a website or a web application is deemed worthy primarily because of its content would not be totally wrong.

Building websites is not uncommon today, but what might be uncommon is building websites that will set the benchmark for all others to follow. Just stuffing your site with features on top of features is not going to achieve that benchmark, what may achieve it is the understanding of the needs and requirements of your business and consequently your site.
