Powerful Content Management

ExpressionEngine 2 (EE) is an extremely flexible, user-friendly and robust content management system with an extensive user base. It is based on the popular and respected PHP Codeigniter framework, which is open source. The CMS itself is more of a ‘CMS framework’, allowing us to design the system to best suit your needs.

Fully Responsive

With more and more of your visitors using mobile devices to access your website, it is essential to have a mobile strategy in place. One method which is particularly effective for small business websites, is known as responsive design. A responsive website adapts to the viewer's screen size, scaling images and text and altering navigation menus in order to provide an optimal experience across all devices.

Integrated E-Commerce

Looking to selling your products online? You've come to the right place. Don't mean to toot our own horn but we know what we're doing when it comes to e-commerce, having recently developed our own fully-featured shopping module for the ExpressionEngine CMS, integrated with a number of New Zealand and international payment gateways. What this means is that you no longer have to build your online store separately to your business website, we can tailor and entire website to do everything you want it to, from a single login. Our software is used on hundreds of websites internationally, and has collectively processed many millions of dollars worth of transactions. It include all the features you'd expect, such as promotions & discounts, order workflow management, inventory, complex product variations and reporting. You can find out more at exp-resso.com


Would you like a members-only section on your website? No problem at all! With complex permissions and member management, we can build your membership website exactly the way you want it. You can use these member accounts for anything, from storing a user's order history, to signing them up to newsletters, providing members-only downloads, or a place for members to interact with each other.

Search Engine Optimisation

Not much point having a website if no-one can find it, right? All Crescendo websites are built with the latest search engine optimisation techniques in mind. While SEO is a complex, ongoing process, we'll happily provide all the advice you need on the road to getting that page one ranking in Google

Custom Development

Sometimes off-the-shelf software just isn't quite what you need, and we understand that. Even the best content management system can't do everything. We have extensive experience using a variety of web languages such as PHP and Ruby on Rails, and can take care of any additional functionality required for your website.

We specialise in building add-ons for the ExpressionEngine CMS, and have built a number of commercial and open source add-ons which we provide for the EE community.
