• Modern layout style that doesn't age over-night.
• Web layout which can be further integrated with more identity details and content as the business grows

WEBSITE CODE DEVELOPMENT
Optimized Web Graphics: Optimized Web Graphics for the Web with pixel level precision for speeding page load times.

Custom CSS programming: Custom coded Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) for defining the website's look and style in one centralized file.

SSI / PHP programming: Custom coded Server Side Includes (PHP) which breaks the XHTML coded page into sections which further increases page caching and speeds load times.

WEB APPLICATIONS
Several custom designed and coded PHP/MySQL Web applications for creating a full online booking and management service for a courier company. Unique applications for customers include custom coded shipping calculator (based on weight, delivery time and week day) and a custom coded service area checker. Visitors have the ability to create a customer account and schedule shipments online. They can track each shipment and view images to confirm the pick-up and delivery condition and status of the shipped packages.

Drivers have the ability to login and check shipments (gigs) assigned to them. They have a full control to update tracking log with new shipment information and pick-up and delivery photos. Drives can also generate new shipments.

Admin has access to a full dash board of data driven Web applications to manage the business:
• Management of customer accounts: Access all customer accounts, manage tracking logs, create new shipments, update pending balances
• Management of driver accounts: Assign delivery tasks for drivers, Add new drivers, Create special instruction lists for drivers
• Management of delivery areas: Add new delivery areas
• Management of shipping calculator: Update rate variables


SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION
