Web + App Development
One of the earliest adopters of the Internet, Wieck has been developing websites for the past quarter century. Our team of seasoned professionals has the experience needed to build sophisticated and reliable websites and mobile phone apps from the ground up.
- Wieck began developing digital newsrooms for clients in the late 1990s as companies became aware that all types of media files could be digitized and distributed via the Internet. The early pioneers were the automotive manufacturers and news organizations, but other companies soon followed. Wieck now has built online newsrooms for clients in such widely diverse fields as airlines and airports, education, energy, entertainment, golf resorts, government, healthcare, food, insurance, motorsports, public relations, and tourism.
- No two companies have the same exact goals, priorities and requirements when it comes to website needs. That’s why Wieck uses a team approach to develop first a strategy, then the workflow and, finally, the integrated design of our custom digital platforms. But we also have some standard at-the-ready tools for building something fast when a special need arises.
- Anyone trying to disseminate news and information should offer a mobile app now that there are more mobile devices in the world than there are people. That’s why Wieck was among the early developers of responsive applications for our clients enabling their information to be formatted properly for any mobile device.
- Client website hosting was offered alongside and at the very beginning of our website development. Originally, Wieck managed and maintained its own servers to host client sites and content. As our client list grew, we migrated those chores to various co-locations that were certified as secure by the Department of Defense. Now, hosting for Wieck clients is shared among several of the cloud services such as Amazon Web Services, IBM’s Softlayer, Media Temple and Rackspace.
- From the beginning, Wieck’s management and staff has advised clients on a variety of technical and practical levels for best practices and results. The confidence in our expertise stems from our extensive background in the news business and our technical research and development, along with our continuing association with news and information groups, public relations organizations and societies, and various tech groups.
Pioneering the online newsroom, Wieck has been managing and distributing content for decades. Admired for their speed and agility, our editorial desk team has been trusted to publish and deliver vital content on behalf of leading global corporations.
- Unlike most web development and content management companies, Wieck has from inception provided editorial services for clients who need them. Most companies have limited resources and skill sets to properly focus on the non-daily, often sporadic, chores of preparing and loading document, image, audio and video files to ensure proper placement, visibility, and data recording. And even for clients that do have the resources, Wieck’s editorial team provides backup for those occasional “oops” moments when things go awry, sometimes for unknown reasons. Our editors are top-notch, dedicated to excellence and have well-rounded skill sets in editing and proofing broadcast, graphic, photo, text and video files.
- The Wieck editorial team reviews all client content to ensure proper format, tags and other metadata criteria before posting. We can make changes on the fly, as when a key figure is promoted or departs, an existing product or service becomes an award winner, or for whatever reason existing content needs quickly to be repurposed. And we routinely manage “hold for release” or “advance” materials; preparing them for publication and than making them “live” at the appointed day and hour. We also are adept at handling “exclusive” materials that are to be distributed on a limited or one-shot basis to designated individuals or media entities.
- Whether you need to distribute your digital files to the public, to the media, or just internally, Wieck’s online DAM systems are designed for ease of use on both ends. Among the most time consuming preparations in developing any digital platform are work flow analysis and selection of the proper tools with which staff can do the job. Wieck prides itself in easing clients through this oft-difficult process that is key to the success of any DAM or website with a large number of assets. On the other side is the requirement that the system be easy on the user. While less difficult to design, this requirement is just as important. Wieck always is looking to improve the user experience on each side of its systems.
- Our systems are designed to provide custom reporting as needed for each of our clients. The Wieck editorial team checks each file before posting to ensure that all metadata is in place to facilitate client reports and tracking. And when needed, we engage the most respected analytical services to compile special and extraordinary reporting and tracking when required.
