Business Mechanix have been involved in web development almost since its inception in early 2000, from clever e-stores moving into the development of their own sophisticated CMS based solution used by brands such as Coca-Cola and Variety Children’s charity. In recent times and as technologies have continued to improve, Business Mechanix have been developing web portals for large scale sites such as Wintec and Mediaworks. We have built web-portals both using our own technology as well as open source technologies such as Umbraco as well as Microsoft technologies such as Sharepoint and Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Even our own website is written using the CRM Portal technology- just to show case what can been done with a free add-on product to Microsoft Dynamics CRM.  We can work through Web Portals from the design process, or work with your current in-house or external design or advertising company. Our strengths lie in the clever stuff- integrating your existing systems in one smart looking front end site. We can integrate finance systems, student management systems, CRM systems, document management systems, IT helpdesk system and more to your web portal. The best part is we are also experts at single-sign-on and know about all of the tricky security methods and rules too. 

Even if you have a challenge environment with both cloud systems and on premise, this is what we excel in. We have setup over 1 million cloud users and have worked with many of our customers on integrating these cloud users with on premise systems for a seamless experience.
