MAW are a small web development company using i-ntarsia to help them grow in a competitive market.
I-ntarsiatm for Web Developers
Why would a technical web developer want to use a system like i-ntarsia? The answer will be different depending upon which type of web developer you are.
Front End Developers
The i-ntarsia module library gives the front end developer access to a huge range of off-the-shelf, back end business systems, all available in low cost monthly subscriptions. Each module has a customisable front end, which will allow you to tailor the module to your client requirements without the need for costly back end development. This gives the front end developer considerable advantage in competitive situations.
Where custom functionality is required, the I-Next team can support the process from the development of the specification right through to delivery of the final system. We also guarantee that the developed system will be compatible with current and future versions of i-ntarsia. This will give your customers peace of mind in committing to a development process.
Many highly skilled front-end developers will freely admit that their knowledge of backend protocols, database implementation and hosting management is limited. Our in depth of knowledge in these areas makes us a formidable partner for such developers.
Finally, our shared recurring revenue model means that front end development specialists can smooth out the feast/famine nature of website project work.
It is true that skilled web programmers can write their own management systems, or customise an open source system. However, such work has costs associated with it. Where budgets are tight, why reinvent the wheel? I-ntarsia is a proven platform with a range of very competitive pricing options and a reasonably open approach to technical site development.
Our Reseller Agreement does not constrain you to only working with i-ntarsia. We recognise that we have a great solution for many types of site, but that there will always be sites that are better approached on a custom basis. We see i-ntarsia as tool that can be used by Web Programmers to work on a wider range of projects, whilst still making money.
Can you develop code for the system? The answer is a qualified "yes". We do have a provision for resellers to develop their own modules for the system. We can even sell third party modules through our reseller network. The qualification on the "yes" is simply that it is often more cost effective for our skilled team to do the development work once you have specified it with the client.
