Joomla Development

Joomla! is one of the most powerful Open Source Content Management Systems you can get. It is used all over the world for everything from simple websites to complex corporate and ecommerce applications. It is simple to manage and reliable. Here at Verve we've been developing on it, since it's inception and have used it every way shape and form imaginable. From corporate and informational sites to complete portals, communities, intranets and e-commerce applications. We've done it all. We can customize any design or create custom Joomla! components and modules.

Our Joomla related services include;

  • Pre-install strategy and planning
  • Installation and configuration to suit your situation
  • Template design or adapting pre-made solutions
  • On site page design and graphics
  • Integration and adaptation of 3rd party add ons
  • Custom programming of components and modules
  • Updating and security

And much more. Every time we take on a new Joomla project, we gain new skills.

 

Free never means Free

All Open Source applications come with a caveat; free is a misconception. Sure, you could put them up on your website out of the box, but that rarely works. You will have to spend yours or a service provider's time getting things the way you want them. Think of it as renting the space for your business. You still need to bring in the furniture, the computers, paint the place to your liking and branding. Content management systems such as Joomla merely become the starting point.

The great part about it is that there is a large community of developers behind it that ensure it is effective and secure. When you have something custom built for your website you get more granular control and modification. The down side is that it costs more and now you have to be constantly adapting and maintaining your proprietary code. It can can be overwhelming.

We often recommend that small and medium sized businesses use open source applications such as Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart and others to get started. Even if you plan to have your own programs developed some day, it makes sense. You can work out the concepts and functionalities you want (on an OS application) and then have a better idea of how you want your custom programmed solution to function.
