"We had known Integrated Web Solutions for a few years before we finally
elected to put our own business web site together. We didn't consider using
anyone but IWS when we made the decision. We know that their business
philosophies and ours meshed quite well and that they could help guide us
through the process which seemed as foreign to us as tax law seems to our
clients," said Alexis Portugal, partner at Saunders, Portugal and
Integrated Web Solutions first steps were to secure the domain name and web
site hosting for Saunders, Portugal and Associates. Afterwards, work began
in extending the brand that had been established in new print brochures and
a new logo identity which was in use. IWS made numerous suggestions of the
types of content that a web site visitor may find useful in order to guide
the client through the process of writing their own web site content.
"It was funny, we had a number of our clients call you after we had gotten our
own domain name wondering if our pricing was going up now that we'd 'gone
professional' with new e-mail addresses tied to our company domain name,"
said Portugal. "In the end, we love the new site and our clients do as well.
It's gotten us some new local clients and it's doing quite well in serving
our existing clients. It was amazing to us how quickly it all went together
and how fast IWS responds to our requests for updates and help."
