When you choose a web development partner you're choosing the team that you will be working closely with on your current project and often times on a longer-term basis. Sage Computer Services provides expert web development, but it is our superior client support that sets us apart from other web development companies.
Sage Computer Services has been developing websites for over 20 years (yes, we were there at the beginning!) and during that time has built over 100 websites, ranging from e-commerce with full Content Management Systems (CMS) to non-profit sites for both commercial and private clients, and from custom websites to open-source blog themes.
Below are just some of the features of our work that our clients tell us they love and that separate us from the rest of the pack:
- Expert Development
We are experts in the major web development and database platforms. All site development and maintenance is coded in the latest HTM5 and CSS3 standard. We can build and/or maintain your site in Windows/ASP, ASP.NET or Linux/PHP, and SQL Server and/or MySQL databases. We also provide full development and maintenance support for open-source systems such as WordPress. We have over 20+ years of experience in computer and database development and our sites reflect this in their rock-solid stability and security. We build our sites using Dreamweaver Templates for consistency and ease of maintenance.
- Complete Test Development Environment
We maintain our own complete web server and database environments. We build your site on our local servers first, enabling our clients to review and approve the site pages and functionality on our servers before the site is posted live.
- Full Browser Support including Mobile
We build your site to support all major browsers and operating systems including mobile devices. We ensure that your site looks and performs identically on all of the major browsers on both PC and Mac as well as on all major mobile devices including iPad and other tablet devices, and smartphones including iPhone, Blackberry, Android, and others.
- The Big Picture
We fully support the broader Internet environment that your site operates within: We can advise and assist you with the creation and maintenance of domain names and associated DNS records, email accounts. FTP accounts, web stats, SSL certificate creation and more.
- Search Engine Friendly
We build your site to be Search Engine Optimized (SEO) friendly. Your site will take advantage of special techniques to optimize placement on search engine results. We also advise our clients on the best practices for formatting their site content and relating it to META data in a way that is most relevant to the major search engines.
- We're There For You
We are always available to our clients – many times after hours and on weekends. Our clients love being able to write to us or call with issues big or small and be able to talk them through with us and get simple straightforward answers.
We understand security. In today's Internet environment, it's vital to understand and employ the most secure coding techniques available to ensure that your site and its data are protected. We understand where it is necessary and appropriate to use security tools such as data encryption, Secure Sockets (SSL), protection against SQL injection, querystring and form validation and other techniques to keep your site and its data safe.
- Smooth Sailing
We don't nickel-and-dime you. We understand that the process of building a website is rarely without some types of addition or modification to the project requirements. Our goal is to make your site the best that it can be, and short of major functional changes, we incorporate modifications and revisions to the site as a matter of course – without change orders, extra charges, sign-offs and quibbling that can bog down a project.
The following references were provided by some of the clients we've had the privilege to work with through the years:
"Sage Computer Services is the right shop to call when you need problems solved. Mark and the Sage team are great listeners with a unique capacity to take ill-focused, nontechnical ideas and translate them into web strategies that work. They are efficient, quick, and affordable; and most important of all, they make me look great in front of my clients."
-David Brotherton, President, Brotherton Strategies
Mark and Kitty have been incredible to work with over the past 8 years. They have done custom software and website development for my small business which has given me a competitive edge. They also did excellent work on a site for my state senate campaign. They stand behind their work and I have always been satisfied. They do an excellent job of consulting to determine the right solutions for your individual needs. They also work well with any number of outside designers we have used in the past. Hire them. You won't be sorry.
- Guy Palumbo, Owner, Roscoe's Ranch / The First District
"Deep listening, ninja execution, and a beautiful final product: That's what we experienced when we worked with Sage. During the process of designing our website they asked all the right questions, including some difficult ones. That's when you know you're working with pros: They ask the hard right questions and you feel smarter for the asking."
- Joseph Bednarik, Marketing and Sales Director, Copper Canyon Press
"We've worked with Sage Computer Services on numerous projects, all were completed just the way we wanted them and on deadline. We really appreciate their above and beyond responsiveness and dependability.
- Lisa Curran, Curran Design, Inc.
Sage Computer Services has been a trusted partner in creating website solutions for our clients. We know that the upfront consultation is fair, practical and reliable. And when it comes time to execute, we utilize Sage's very responsive development team because we know they can be counted on up until the day we go live, and beyond.
- Philip Shaw, Chief Creative Strategist & President, Golden Lasso Design
I love working with Sage Computer Services. They are so easy to work with and make the process absolutely pain free. They ask all the right questions up front so there are no surprises along the way. You'll never hear 'we can't do that' in the middle of the project which so often is the case. They are also extremely fair and cost competitive. I look forward to the next time we partner on building a site.
- Sharon Backurz, Creative Director / Guruuve Studios

We have worked with Mark/Sage for many years on many projects both personally and on behalf of our clients. Their work has always been of the highest quality and at a reasonable price.
