We were so proud to work with the Loomis Basin Chamber of Commerce to design, develop and host their newest site. The new site uses WordPress & WooCommerce with customizations to support event and product sales, recurring billing for memberships, and a powerful directory that give members direct control over their online profile.
“In a world where everything is one click away, the Loomis Chamber needed to adapt. We choose to have i-Tul design and program our new website and it instantly brought us to the 21st century! Within a few days we had people easily purchasing from our site! On the back end it was so simple to track product orders, see new members and get reports. Because we represent many businesses in the community, this website is a central point for over 200 members to find events and resources. Some of our members do not have websites of their own and now thanks to our membership directory they can upload information and use our site to host their details. The i-Tul team has been hands on and professional. From our discovery calls to the training sessions, I am quite happy with our new site!”

This seminar is for any software decision makers who want to know when should they buy existing software and when should they build custom software. There are so many options available and it can be hard to wade through the variety to see what will accomplish the goals and have the best ROI.
We’ll talk about defining the business needs, which is the foundation of this process. If we get the needs right and identify the real problems that need to be solved, then the solution will effectively solve those problems. We’ll also cover calculating the costs of these problems because little things can really add up. If you spend 10 minutes a day on a task, then that adds up to week of work of in a year. What could you do with an extra week?
We will dive into evaluating options for pre-made software, calculating costs, and understanding the different models including cloud based and self hosted. There are many options for every need and one of the hardest parts is narrowing down the field.
Next, we will explore custom software. The custom software development process can be daunting so I will break it down. We’ll talk about what is possible, the process and the costs. Choosing your vendor will be imperative to the success of the project and we will talk about how to find the best software developer for your business. We’ll also get into hybrid solutions which add custom components to existing solutions, like a custom dashboard for a CRM.
Finally, I’ll be available for questions from all attendees. I’ve been working in the IT/software fields since 1993 and have helped thousands of client navigate this process.
