Web sites fall into two
There are those web sites
that tell you something about a company product or service.
These are called "static content" web sites. An
example of a static content website might be the N.Y. Times
The other major category
of web site is one where the human user interacts typically
to place orders, check on inventory, check shipping status,
or other interactive business functions. These are called
"dynamic content" web sites. An example of a dynamic
content web site with which you might be familiar might
be your financial services broker, such as Charles Schwabb's
You may have had experiences
where a customer or vendor pointed you to a web site, and
you said to yourself, "Why am I here?" CDS does
not build the "why are we here?" type of web site.
All of our web sites are
designed and engineered to respond to specific business
need(s). We are uniquely able to combine the top-flight
technical expertise of our Cardinal Data Systems staff with
award-winning marketing insight of our CDS Marketing Communications
The results are web sites
that do something for the business, whether it be upgrading
a business image, facilitating order processing/customer
service and/or reducing overhead.
