Banners Slider ManagementBanner slider is a premium real estate of any website. That is the first thing that users sees and search engine crawls. We implement and recommend a good banner slider like Revolution slider. This allows you to have text overlays and embed call to actions. Both are very important as text can be crawled by search engine and with right call to action you take the user directly to part of the funner and enable goal conversions.
Responsive Theme ImplementationA responsive design is a key to mobile first design approach. With increasing number of users transacting and browsing on small/smart devices, it is imperative for a website/web store to be optimized for increased goal conversion on smart phones and tablets.
Advanced SearchSearch is a very important function of any web and mobile app project. Depending on the nature of the project emphasis on search needs to be implemented. For example for CMS sites search all content not just pages, post but also all custom objects. If it is an eCommerce implementation, then in addition to searching product catalog, static content and blog; we implement predictive/type ahead search, weight based/weighted search, etc.
Social Network IntegrationSocial networks are great ways to share your information as a business. Every business has a page/account on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Linked in. Simplest integration is link in header or footer to your social media accounts. A step further is to allow users who are interacting with your website to share a page/post/product on their network by posting it on their timeline or enable them to tweet it. If your site has my account, we recommend enabling login/registration using social network accounts. Lastly, it is even bigger statement for enabling users to share a transaction/purchase they recently made by enabling sharing feature 'Thank you' page.
Enhanced User Management/SecurityAll systems have some or other kind of user management, roles, some kind of access control. There are certain custom application that need to control more fine grained access control.
