For nearly two decades, we have crafted websites for some of the most prestigious brands in the world. Organizations like MetLife, Fortress, Penn Mutual, iHeart Media, Cahill, Proskauer, and the Carnegie Council, among many others, have chosen us to build their websites and keep them secure, reliable, engaging, and easy to manage. Though we specialize in legal, finance and insurance, we also love working with other media and professional service firms, start-ups, and non-profits.
Animus Rex Web CMS is our full-featured web platform with an integrated content management system, designed to reduce the cost and time-to-market for even the most demanding websites, landing pages, blogs, and web applications.
We've honed every feature around three powerful ideas: speed, security, and ease of use.
More people access the Internet from mobile devices than from desktop computers. Responsive design allows your site to logically scale to the screen size of the device it’s being viewed on.
There used to be a standard screen size. Not anymore. Applying cutting edge development principles, we create a seamless optimized experience from desktop to tablet to handheld using the same content.
Your customers are not going mobile, they went mobile years ago.
BTW: Animus Rex pioneered responsive design for law firms, implementing the first three mobile-friendly legal sites!
We organize content so it's actually useful to your audience.
You know your company better than anyone else. But sometimes being too close to internal views is why it’s hard to organize your content so it makes sense to the outside world. We are masters at seeing patterns in information, structuring complex data sets, and delivering content to your audience in a way that makes sense to them.
You never get a second chance to make a first impression. It takes a visitor less than 5 seconds to decide if they're staying on your site. If it's relevant, appealing and makes sense, they'll stay. If not, they're gone. Beautiful design and thoughtfully considered customer experience are critical for your website to succeed.
For those who don't live and breathe the latest in "Web Speak," CX = Customer Experience, UX = User Experience (which somehow wasn't good enough, so it had to be elevated to CX), and UI = User Interface (which is still en vogue). Collectively, they are what dictates the look/feel/behavior of a website. These are tightly bound to visual design but are their own thing.
Where the rubber meets the road.
We sport 99.95% uptime, private cloud virtualization with multiple geographically distributed compute nodes and continuous live replication, load balancing, automated DDoS protection, PCI and HIPAA compliant data centers, burstable bandwidth, daily full backups, monthly permanent snapshot archival, global content distribution (CDN) for media assets (which allows for quick loading from anywhere), 24/7 service monitoring and fanatical support by real people who actually answer the phone.
In other words, we've got you covered!
We audit websites for ADA compliance. If we built the site, we will also mitigate those issues. If not, we will provide an actionable report to take to your developer and then retest. Once compliant, we will issue a certificate of compliance as of a specific date. Aside from being good citizens, there are some excellent reasons to make sure your website is ADA compliant. Here's a good overview of the basics.
