MYSQL Database Image

Sharp Solutions, Inc. uses “Content Management System” built website designs. CMS is designed to keep information categorized and organized in a database or databases with tables. CMS stores information in database tables that is then presented to a web browser and viewed using themed templates

Our CMS websites keep the content separate from the content presentation. What visitors visit and view is a template and behind the scenes configure settings make database calls/request for information that then displays in specific areas directed by the themes template.

After initial construction your administrators need “No programming skills” to update/add content. Your administrative employees who access the website to update content can access the administrative area from anywhere and use any standard web browser. CMS can be used for any type of business.

CMS based websites can handle all kinds of traffic while keeping your information in a non-cluttered organized database. Multiple users can access and use the site from different locations; staff can be taking orders, a user can be purchasing from your online e-commerce store, a member can be logging in to your members only area, or users can be posting comments or asking questions. All these and many more can be occurring while department staff is checking current inventories.

These are all examples of traffic and changes that can be made simultaneously without affecting others or confusing the database.

When it comes to business or personal use you can depend on Sharp Solutions and our CMS websites.

Responsive Design Image

Today’s internet users are using more devices than ever to view and browse the web. Responsive web designs are critical for optimal viewing experiences. When constructing your website design in the early stages of development we start with the mobile phone view. This is the time when only the most important information and relevant links are displayed with a single block on top of block manner. As the size of the device increases such as “mobile phone to tablet in landscape view” we can begin to display more information. Responsive websites detect the size of the display and then use the configured layouts to display the sites information. Images, logos and links all resize reacting to these configured and set settings.

This allows users viewing your content on regular and wide screen monitors, mobile handheld devices, i-phones, i-pods, i-pads, android phones and tablets, and all other types of electronic devices to have optimal and individual user experiences.
