Why We Need a Properly Built Website and How We're Getting There

Slowly But Surely
Getting our website up to date has been a long process, but we’re definitely moving in the right direction. We use Directive as our web provider, and they’ve been extremely helpful in terms of getting those things done, that we haven’t been able to do on our own. Our site was built using Joomla which is an open source tool, and coming from a custom web shop, it’s taken me awhile to get on board with what I call a ‘templated solution’. I’m still not completely sold on the idea of a template (as well as a content management system that has a bunch of stuff we don’t use/need), but I’m ok for now.
