1996 to 2021: Our 25 years in business.
When starting out in business, it's nice to think and believe that you have a product or service that will work. Sometimes, rethinking that product or service is often necessary. Since 1996, we have stayed focused exclusively on web development. No business is immune to change, but we've never wavered from our original idea and vision back in 1996.
We have the secret code.
Do-it-yourself template-based websites don’t always pan out as they should. This is why we still custom program, or code, our clients’ websites. The result? A custom website that functions the way you intended, allowing you to manage areas of content without the hassles of those do-it-yourself platforms. All at a fair price.
Did you know...
In 1996, our business name came from using the "Shift + F7" function in Microsoft Word? The combination of those two keys activates the thesaurus feature. At the time, the synonym "opus" came up as an alternative to words we had typed in such as "creation," "work," "composition," etc.
The partnership was formed in 1996 on the premise of focusing exclusively on web development. We have remained true to that premise since.
In 25 years, we've seen and done a lot! Experience counts and we pride ourselves on passing along that experience as expertise to our clients.
When originally formed, the business name was Opus Web Technologies. The word "opus" is a synonym for "creative," "piece of work."
Hancock Public Schools
A repeat client over the past ten years, the Hancock Public School District wanted to transform their website. A "dashboard" main page interface to show information the district needs to deliver on a daily basis transitions very nicely from desktop to mobile.
Baraga Lakeside Inn
As an existing client, the Baraga Lakeside Inn recognized the need to move into a new mobile-friendly website. An entirely new design and concept was presented and executed with all new photography as well as ongoing maintenance and support.
Adams Township Schools
A client for the past seven years, the Adams Township School District wanted to retain the look of their existing website while making sure it was mobile friendly. Their previous design allowed for the upgrade, allowing all previous content management functionality to remain.
Wanting to make the switch to a mobile-friendly website was important to Calumet Township. In addition, streamlining their online content management was something they found beneficial. Making use of large imagery also enhances the visitor experience.
The leading manufacturer of production equipment for the diagnostic culture media industry, ONLINE-Engineering moved away from the complexities of WordPress and opted to rely on Opusweb for custom design, programming and ongoing support.
As the North American distributor for AIRMAN and Grid To Go, ANA required a complete website overhaul that accurately reflected their operation both visually and functionally. The modern and creative new design meshes well with easy-to-find spec sheets and manuals.
Portage Township wanted to make the transition to a mobile-friendly website. We were able to transition them from their old site to the new while still retaining the functionality that allowed them to manage meeting minutes and township news & announcements.
Lake View Cemetery
Lake View Cemetery not only wanted to develop their first website, but also wanted online mapping for their burial plots. To accomplish this, a plot map was developed and combined with custom programming, allows for easy online updating that they can control.
our mainstay has only been web development. 25 years later, we
are still here.
That speaks volumes.
