SERVICES PROBLEM SOLVING - SOLUTIONS ANALYSIS - I am known in Malta as a creative thinker and a solutions provider and analyst. Simply, I try to solve problems in a methodological way. This is usually carried out by an in-depth analysis of the problem and formulating logical, efficient solutions to get the desired result. Most of my consultancy is based on business problem solving, from increasing revenue to streamlining procedures. This also involves being an IS consultant on a national level. SOCIAL MEDIA - Is my main line of business. I am nationally known as the foremost expert in social media. I have personally managed and created National and international campaigns which span Millions of users and Hundreds of Thousands of Euro in budgets. Create - Grow - Analyse - Streamline. Although anyone can create a facebook page, it takes experience, expertise and knowledge to make it successful.

CMS - With over 120 Content Management System Implementations we are experts in this field. Our CMS partners are Joomla!, we can customise, enrich, install and maintain any size of CMS from a local store to a multinational organisation. We also build custom modules in PHP for Joomla! to offer a complete custom experience. We also do custom themes and skins. Everyone says they are a web developer but only trust in experts. SEO - We have working with us the best SEO engineers on the island and some of the best in Europe. Some of our team used to work with Google themselves. Developing a website for your business and putting it online, is very much like opening a new shop in the middle of nowhere, with no shops, houses or roads in the adjacent 3000 mile radius. Saying that the internet is a huge place is an understatement, and by simply adding your own website to the internet, it is like adding a drop in the ocean.

Graphic Design - We started by offering graphic design. My design team offer quality which is of international standard. All the companies which trust me with their project end up being pleasantly surprised by our graphic design work and usually we end up contracting all the graphic work as well. We specialise in print campaigns and web imaging. My clients also have the advantage of using our printing partners which offer us special reduced pricing. Software Engineering - It goes without saying that all the other services are based on a solid foundation of Software Engineering, we mostly use C# and Microsoft technologies for development. I have a team of dedicated and experienced programmers and this why I handle any size of project from the smallest to the largest.
