ActiveLight: a set of water wings for your web presence!

ActiveLight is essentially a lighter version of our main service aimed at helping small businesses to get online. Using our industry expertise and experience, we have developed a range of products for small businesses so that we can build a web presence easily, quickly and efficiently. If that sounds good, then you'll be delighted to learn that an ActiveLight web site can cost as little as £99.

How can that be? Well, as ActiveCS has grown over the last few years we've found ourselves being involved in increasingly larger and more complex projects with purpose-built features and fully customised design and branding. However, we also found that some of our smaller customers such as start-ups, sole traders and micro businesses were still coming to us. So how could we continue to help them as well as our bigger clients? By bringing in our high-level expertise to bear on smaller projects. Enter ActiveLight.

How it works
ActiveLight focuses on the needs of small businesses, which our experience tells us are different from those of bigger or more established ones. By using a range of pre-built industry-tested components, from site designs to forms and galleries, we are able to turn a job around quickly and therefore keep costs down. There's no need for lengthy meetings, no need for in-depth analysis. All we need is a sitemap, some images and text to fill the boxes and we do the rest.

And it gets better. ActiveLight is scaleable so that you can start with the package that suits your business and then scale up as the business grows - you can add features at any time, giving you the flexibility you need to control your business presence.

We employ a range of templates that have been tested for stability on all major browsers and platforms and for accessibility through WAI and Bobby. That means that your site is not only cost-effective but it will comply with all the Disability Discrimination Act regulations for web content.

Now, if you're running a small business that's good news because you won't have to have your site redeveloped or redone due to a failure to meet these standards. That means that you will save money in the long run. If you're shopping around, ask others if the site they will build for you meets all of these high standards in terms of regulations, coding standards and design and branding. We can do this because of our experience.

All ActiveLight sites undergo a stringent series of checks, including:

  • WAI compliance
  • HTML coding standards
  • CSS coding standards
  • Browser stability
  • Platform (operating system) stability
  • Usability
  • Design and branding
  • Search engine readiness

Why not get in touch to find out how we can help you dip your toes in the water? If you've been meaning to take the plunge, you could find yourself buoyant in no time at all.

Remember to ask us about other extras that can help your site rise above the others, including web hosting, domain name registration, maintenance deals, photography, copy writing and search engine optimisation.
