Bitsculptor just completed a redeployment for a new client - Buckingham Homes Association here in Lake County. The site was built on the Wordpress platform using a custom and innovative design purchased for the project.
Although much of our design and development work is custom, the Buckingham site is a good example of what can be done on a small budget.
The site is still adaptable and powerful with all of the on page content and slideshows able to be edited by site administrators via the Wordpress backend.
We recently launched a completely revamped website for Shannon Ridge Vineyards & Winery in Lake County, CA. The client was seeking a major site upgrade in terms of visual design and site management tools, and we deployed a solution within 4 weeks of starting the project.

The new CMS allows Shannon Ridge staff to easily modify all of the content on the website using simple, secure, browser-based tools.

Consumer Credit Counseling Services of Central Illinois is the choice provider of the "Credit When Credit Is Due" credit education program for American Family Insurance, a nationwide insurance firm. CCCS provides the curriculum and tests to AMFAM clients, who, if they pass the tests, are given an insurance discount, as clients with better credit are considered to be lower insurance risks.
BitSculptor has already developed a host of powerful web applications which allow CCCS to take online test orders, process, and track clients through a secure, web-based interface. Now, we will be putting the Credit When Credit Is Due curriculum and tests online, allowing people to register online, then immediately access the curriculum through a secured site. Tests will be taken online, and graded immediately by the system.
Online testing drastically simplifies the program registration and test processing process on CCCS' side of things, because they will no longer need to ship curriculum via postal mail, grade the tests by hand, or enter client data manually. With over 1200 new program registrants every month, the ROI will be obvious and immediate.
