Why we use WordPress

At the heart of all the websites we build for clients, is WordPress, a bare-bones software framework that allows us to build anything for anyone with ease and flexibility. Once scorned by purists, it now dominates the web design industry as the world’s most widely used website building tool and a fantastically robust and secure platform, with unparalleled flexibility .

We use WordPress because we believe it has the right combination of flexibility, robustness and portability that makes it a cost-effective business application. It lends itself not only to creative design, but also as a marketing tool, nimbly adapting to many uses, and easy for the technically-challenged to manage.
