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."
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.
As a new client, the project included the development of a mobile/responsive website that integrates with the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for property listings. The custom design and development was a complete overhaul from the client's previous online presence.
Lake Fanny Hooe Resort
A customer for 19 years, Lake Fanny Hooe Resort wanted to make improvements to their online presence and opted for a new website. One requirement was to make sure the new website worked on mobile devices with a design that complements their resort.
Having the same website for nearly 12 years, Keweenaw County wanted to streamline their online presence and introduce an entirely different design. Opusweb provided a photo-rich main page and a custom content management system for predefined areas of the site.
our mainstay has only been web development. 25 years later, we
are still here.
That speaks volumes.
