Design

Fresh and Functional Designs Built on Modern Web Standards

Our award-winning designers have a strong foundation of graphic design principles. In our designs, each element has a purpose. We avoid frill for the sake of frill. We believe that websites should be built for prospects and external users, but they should also be easy to manage and support. That’s what has made us one of the top website design companies in the Washington D.C. metro area. Check out some of our designs here.

Responsive Web Design

Save your audience the frustration of pinching and scrolling on a mobile device and struggling to find what they are looking for on your website. Responsive design – a design practice where content is adapted depending on which device you are using – is standard procedure for ATS websites, and our “mobile first” approach ensures that your most important content is highlighted across all devices. This makes things easier on you, too: a single responsive website means that you don’t have to worry about creating content for a separate mobile website.

Mobile Apps to Complement Your Website

In today’s world of integrated, multi-channel communications, mobile apps can add a significant advantage to your marketing mix when they are properly developed, designed, and integrated with your overall brand. We take your audience, challenges, resources, and other unique organizational factors into consideration to help you plan, design, implement, and evolve your mobile app strategy.

Build

A Successful Website Supported with Solid Code and Development Standards

We turn your website design and vision into a reality by delivering a well-organized, properly-coded content management system (CMS); functional design that is well-integrated with all your third-party systems.

Unbiased Content Management System (CMS) Selection and Implementation

We help you find the right CMS that fits your needs and budget. Our experienced developers are certified in multiple enterprise and proprietary CMS, including Kentico, Sitefinity, and Ektron+Episerver, as well as open source platforms like WordPress. Our strategic partnerships with leading CMS vendors ensure that we are well-versed with all current capabilities and future development plans for each. We ensure strict vendor neutrality to bring only the best set of solutions for our clients.

Custom Web and Mobile Applications

It’s not always a website with a content management system (CMS). Sometimes it’s an Intranet, a web application, a mobile app, or something else that doesn’t fit into the standard definition of a website. ATS has in-depth expertise and experience developing web applications in languages such as ASP.NET, PHP, AJAX, and Ruby on Rails. Whether you are looking for a mobile app for your next conference or looking to implement an advanced website search application, ATS can help.
