Glide Technologies Limited offers a selection of tools and technologies that can be integrated into your website in order to enhance its functionality, usability and visual appeal. These enhancements include interactive tools such as blogs, polls, surveys and discussion forums; graphical improvements such as online photo galleries; communication tools (integration with Skype, embedded Google maps, live online help/chat systems); and automated news or weather updates.
For some examples of website enhancements we can integrate into your existing website, please see below:
We can implement a range of photo galleries (which can easily be updated via the use of third-party software applications, or directly via your website). Photo galleries provide a great visual way of providing your clients with information that is harder to get across in text. Please contact us for a demonstration of several photo galleries which you can choose from, including:
A blog (online log) is a powerful way of expressing yourself and popularising your ideas. Due to their richness in content, they help you rank high in search engines, as well as reaching your website visitors on a personal level. Considered a strategic business communication tool, one study found that a blog increases the average time spent on a website by 60%. Glide Technologies Limited can incorporate a blog into your existing website in order to enable you to make effective use of this growing trend.
It has been said in politics that "people like to be asked" (former Speaker of the US House of Representatives), and online polls and surveys can easily be added to your existing website in order to collect information about your visitor's preference and to encourage repeat visits to your website.
A forum is a place where your website visitors can exchange information, opinions and feedback with other website visitors (and with yourself). You can start discussions on any topic(s) related to your product or service - and this ability to interact with your website and its visitors is often a good way of encouraging visitors to visit your website more often. Glide Technologies limited can set up a Discussion Forum in your website that is fully customisable, easy to use, and aimed at increasing your website traffic.
The use of an embedded Google map gives a more useful and professional look to your "Contact Us" page, or any page on your website that could benefit from a map with satellite and hybrid options, and zooming facilities. Features include a choice of markers with pop-up information window (often used to highlight corporate address and telephone numbers). To see an example, simply visit our Contact Us page.
Glide Technologies Limited can integrate Twitter feeds into existing website, providing you with a fast and easy way of updating and adding your own news features and latest information easily from your computer or mobile phone.
Facebook is a social networking tool that helps individuals and businesses communicate more efficiently with their partners, suppliers and clients. Integrating Facebook into your website is a recent feature that many businesses are using to show their use of Web2.0 technologies that are rapidly increasing in popularity.
Glide Technologies Limited can add live help functionality to your website with a large number of features including multiple operators / departments (via web browser anywhere in the world), the ability to create your own frequently asked questions, several forms of tracking, the ability to view what the customer is typing as they type, multiple chat sessions and languages, sound alerts and offline message features for times when your Live Help is offline. The ability to offer Live Help to your website visitors is often all you need to encourage visitors to talk to you about their needs and requirements, often generating potential leads that can be converted into real business opportunities.
Glide Technologies Limited can integrate live news feeds into your website (of any topic that suits your business or organisation), e.g. sports, finance, medical news, etc. This provides your visitors with live, up-to-date content within your website that is automatically updated without any work on your part.
Integrating weather feeds into your website is a fast and easy way to add a dynamic aspect to emphasise to your visitors that your website is dynamic and changing all the time. There are several providers to choose from, each with different styles and looks that are often customisable, - please contact us for more details if you would like to add this feature to your existing website.
Have you ever had a Power Point presentation you would like visitors or clients to view on your website? Well at Glide we can integrate any Power Point presetation into your website using a third party presentation facility.
