There are not many website design and Internet marketing companies that can say they were building websites using notepad with connections to the Internet on 28.8 modems. While this isn't exactly a fact that should warrant business like well established companies in other industries, it should factor into your vendor evaluation process. There are a lot of fly by night web shops offering great deals, but don't be one of the many that find out the hard way that any investment with them usually doesn't see a return.
Five Technology has been here a long time and that offers advantages over some of those that have not:
Stability. If you have been burned by the fly-by-night web shop, you understand the importance of Stability. Changing providers can often times mean starting over. This has never been more important than the Open Source CMS era we find ourselves in today. There are thousands of capable companies, but only those that have made it through the hard times have a good chance of being there when you need them. Most of our new clients come from scenario similar to this and find comfort in working with a company they know will stand the test of time.
Portfolio. There is very little we cannot accomplish or have not seen. In visiting our web design portfolio, you will see that we've worked with a wide array of businesses and organizations. From one-man shops to fortune 100 companies, our client portfolio is extensive. Working with a company with limited experience is a risk, and the less risk you take the higher the probability you will see a return on your investment.
Lessons Learned. Good or bad, the lessons learned over the years cannot be discounted. As a company in the constantly changing world of online marketing, we often find yourself in new situations. Everyone will fail from time to time, but the lessons learned have made us a stronger company. There are a lot of valuable lessons wrapped up in that 15+ years.
Change with the Times. When working in an industry that evolves daily, you have to be receptive to change. The solution that was available yesterday may no longer be best practice, and you've got to be willing to keep up with the times. We have instilled into the company culture that learning new things is not an optional part of the job description. When change does come, we are prepared for what it presents!
Longevity. We've been around the block a time or two and have no plans to go anywhere anytime soon!
My goal is to double revenue from the site in the next 2 years. Now that Five Technology has built me this powerful portal management web application, I am able to streamline the process of publishing content.Paul Taylor III, SurvivingMold.com

Wow, the transition to the new system was seamless. Kudos to everyone that worked this out. Thank you very much!Vicki Adney, Reck Agri
We have had many comments from our community on the ease of use of navigation and they really have enjoyed the new look and layout. Our staff certainly has benefited as we have used the website more and more as a communication device to our school patrons. I look forward to taking full advantage of the student section for our classes, hopefully next year.Paul Ludwig, Delano Public Schools
