About Us

Philosophy

Atavistic Software Office

We believe that, in the end, "things change when necessary to remain the same". Chasing the latest technology fads isn't necessary in most cases, but it's important to be aware of what is necessary for a small business in the current world of technology.

Our experience spans many years of change and there are certain key components that never stop being important. For most small enterprises, your website is your main and first point of contact with your customers. It needs to be up-to-date, easy to maintain, and look solid and inviting. It isn't necessary to spend a fortune to have something very powerful and useful.

We specialize in taking control of out of control sites. We've seen it all before and can help you sort out what is the most critical for your success. If we can handle the job, we can certainly help you find someone who can.

Common Misconceptions about Websites

Facebook is not a sufficient web presense. It's useful to have a Facebook page, but not everyone uses it nor wants to. It can be a useful tool, but it's better to have your Facebook page reference your website so that you don't have to maintain duplicate information about your business such as hours of operation and contact info. Facebook owns your page and can do with it as it pleases in the future. That might not suit your best interest and getting an alternative set up quickly should things change might not be easy or possible.

Mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets are increasingly how people interact with the web, but that doesn't mean you need an expensive custom app built for your business. Apps are useful when you have a relationship with your customer and a need for one, but more important is that your website function and look good on a mobile device. Our sites are designed to be responsive and look good across all platforms. Having said that, we can build a custom app for you when the time comes.

Content is by far the most important element of your website. It's critical that a website look good, but not as important as having a reason to visit it. Nobody goes to a website to admire its beauty, they are looking for information. Some of the most successful websites have been plain and simple. Think of Craigslist or eBay. Time needs to be spent working thru what you want to be included and how you want it stated. Your site needs to be created in a way that you can live with when it comes to maintaining it. That includes both content and cost.

If you have website now that you aren't happy with, you are in the perfect position to get it solved. It's actually much easier to tame an unruley site than to create one from scratch, so don't hesitate to contact us for ideas. We can help you find a solution that is suited to your needs.
