What your company needs to tap the power of the
web. We build simple to powerful web applications capable of transaction
processingthe key to reliable and secure internet commerce. 2u3 uses the
latest web technologies like Active Server Pages, ISAPI, VB Script, Java Script, Active
Data Objects and ActiveX. We support Microsoft FrontPage and you can connect to and edit
your web directly from your office or home. In addition we provide Microsoft Office and
Microsoft BackOffice development services.
"Web" development can have different
meanings to different people. 2u3
can determine what type of web development is appropriate for your business. What audience
are you're trying to reachthe folks in your own office or potential consumers the
world over? Should your site consists of several static pages or should the site actively
change on a periodic or user-based basis? Do you want to provide information to users?
Collect information from users? Or both? Will your users order products, inquire about
existing services? Do you require transactions or even secure transactions? How will your
users access your site? Over the Internet or a private network like your LAN? What
software or browser(s) will they use to access your site?
Static web pages are the easiest and least time
consuming (hence, least expensive) to develop. They consist of standard HTML (hypertext
markup language), displaying the same text and graphics every time a user accesses the
page. If you need to make a change to the page, the HTML must be changed. For simple web
sites that may only provide a phone number or directions, static web pages may be
Dynamic web pages and web applications are
limited only by the designer's imagination. Pages can be personalized for each user or
selected information can change with every "hit" on the page. Web applications
provide the ability to make subsequent pages change depending on the choices a user
selects in a previous page. Thus, web applications provide for rich business functionality
that can't be obtained via traditional or static web pages. Furthermore, dynamic pages and
web applications can display, add, change and delete records in virtually any size or type
of database. 2u3 can
even integrate your existing databases with dynamic web pages.
If your target audience will be accessing your
site from the public Internet your design choices are limited by the low bandwidth
connections that most people use to access the Internet. In this case, page and image size
as well as browser types must be taken into account. On the other hand, if the employees
on your high speed LAN are the audience and you can control for the type of browser, then
you don't have to worry about low bandwidth considerations in the design of your site.
As you can see there are many aspects of
"Web" development that must be taken into accountideally, before the first
line of code is ever written. Enter 2u3.
We provide full service web development designed to meet your specific requirements.

transforms these "out-of-the-box" applications into powerful custom business
applications while minimizing development time and costs.
Consider this example. Your company has a
Microsoft Access database that contains client information such as contact and sales data.
You want to be able to send a letter to every client who generated more than 5000 dollars
of revenue, but you can't get the out-of-the-box mail merge features of Microsoft Word to
do the trick. 2u3 can
extend Word and Access with functionality allowing them to work together to
produce letters (on your own letterhead), addressed to every client who meets the $5000
2u3 provides simple and cost-effective solutions for
common business problems by extending popular applications. What once took days of typing
or cutting and pasting can be cut down to minutes without requiring the purchase of
additional software or full scale development.

Okay, your site has been developed! Now what? How
do people find out about it? What's the Internet Protocol (IP) address? What's your domain
name? How do you register a domain name? What are your Domain Name Servers (DNS)? Who
provides your DNS service?
Since TMI first entered the online world in 1995
we've learned a lot. And one thing's for sure: Clients want one stop shopping. If
you're considering outsourcing your development, you probably don't want to mess around
with the other technical requirements of hosting, running, and maintaining a web. Neither
does anyone else. We understand that you may not know or want to know all the
technicalities, so we're positioned to provide one stop service. You worry about the
content on your site and we'll take care of the details!
