Phoenix Web Development

Our goal at Phoenix is to remove as much stress as possible from setting up and managing the online component of your operation. We do this by offering a full turn-key service and following up with a full range of ongoing support. You won’t need to juggle a bunch of different vendors to get your project completed.

You can take as much or as little control as you like in your project. We are flexible and can tailor our solutions to your personal needs. However you want to work, we keep you in the loop every step of the way. There are no surprises when working with Phoenix.

I’m James, owner of Phoenix Web Development. We’re based in Happy Valley, South Australia in the southern suburbs of Adelaide and can service anyone in Australia. We kicked off operations mid 2013. We work primarily with WordPress but have experience with many systems including Drupal, Joomla and scratch built solutions.

Values We Adhere To

Like any good firm we value delivering on time, using friendly and professional communication and behaving ethically. We also follow some more specific commandments that help us deliver you as much value as possible

Empower our clients

First we shut up and listen. Then we’ll research your business, your options, your competitors and anything else we consider necessary and come up with a plan that works for you. We’ll shore up your weaknesses and enhance your strengths. We’ll be your cheer squad. Whatever your goals are, we’ll help you achieve them.

It’s important to us that you feel full ownership of your website. We make this so by baking user friendliness into every feature and building your website on a content management system . You’ll be able to add and update content without needing to know how to code. We follow up by providing fast, friendly and effective training to get you creating.

High Wheeled Bicycle

Improve the wheel, but don’t reinvent it

When you ask us to build you something we:

  • Reuse code from previous projects
  • Build on existing software and coding conventions
  • Search for existing products that solve the problem

We don’t waste your time and money reinventing the wheel.

Stay Current with the latest developments

One thing a lot of web developers won’t tell you is that websites have a finite shelf life. Technology moves so fast that this is inevitable. We keep informed about the latest and greatest web technologies, standards and techniques and apply them so that your website stays relevant for many years to come.

Avoid unnecessary technical jargon

We communicate effectively by minimising acronyms, jargon and buzzwords. We strive to keep you informed, bringing you up to speed on the technology you need while explaining in clear English.

Use open source software whenever possible

We prioritise open source software over proprietary software when choosing tools in our projects. Some reasons we prefer open source:

  • It is free which leads to cost savings we can pass onto you.
  • It is more reliable.
  • It is less bloated and more modular.
  • It is better supported than the proprietary equivalent.
  • You won’t be locked into software licence contracts.

Our love affair with open source includes contributing to open source projects when we can.

Just imagine the potential for your business once we’ve given it some love. Let us know what’s what on our contact page or fill in our online questionnaire to get a shiny new quote.

It will be the smartest decision you make this year.
