Web Site Development

Rothman & Associates is an experienced website (web site) development company based in the Cleveland, Ohio suburb of Solon. We have been developing websites and custom software applications for the Internet (World Wide Web) and private network intranets for businesses, colleges and non-profit organizations based in Northeast Ohio since 1994.

We build web sites and web applications that make our client's business or organization more efficient and profitable on time and within budget. While web site development has changed immensely since the head of our web site development team, Howard Rothman downloaded his first browser (Mosaic) in 1993, our website development company mission has not. We remain committed to using a best practices approach during all phases of web development by using the most current standards and rules for building and rendering the front-end of web pages and web applications. By combining our commitment to web standards with our commitment to customer service standards, we have produced some great websites and acquired a long list of satisfied customers in the Cleveland market. This approach to running a website development company is our cornerstone.

We engineer and build intricate web-based Internet applications which are composed of many interconnected layers of functionality and multiple databases. Our web design team works in unison with our web development team. At the beginning of website design and development projects, our extremely creative graphic artists and skilled user interface engineers develop working site maps, site navigation structures and wireframes (site schematics) for our clients to review and approve. Then our Mircosoft and our open-source web developers build front-end content management systems and private password protected back-ends that are managed using a web browser.

Our firm is Cleveland's premier web, mobile, smartphone, Android iPad, Blackberry and tablet PC application development company. We are experts at designing websites and web applications that display consistently across a wide range of browsers. We test the websites and web applications we develop at our Solon offices to make sure they work properly in Google's Chrome and Android browsers, Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser, Apple's Safari browser, the Mozilla Foundation's Firefox browser and Opera Software's Opera browser. We build smartphone optimized web sites for companies in Cleveland, Akron, Youngstown, Toledo, Canton, Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton and other Ohio communities. In 2012, our website developers designers started to work extensively on sites and applications for mobile and tablet devices. Because some web site users swipe their finger across their iPad or smartphone screens, we now incorporate techniques that use column-based scrolling and infinite scrolling, layer effects, blur effects, parallax scrolling and horizontal scrolling functionality. We are very good at using a minimalist navigation approach to developing websites that will primarily be viewed on mobile devices or smartphones. Our designers create colorful and eye catching icons that are replacing standard text navigation elements.

Before our agency launches or “goes live” with a website or mobile app, our web developers and engineers, our project managers, our SEO (search engine optimization) specialists and our network administrators collaborate to test the web site or application. We double check the site content (fonts, text and images) for accuracy, we measure the site speed, analyze cross-browser compatibility, make sure that all the URLs are pointing to the proper server IP, activate URL redirection, install XML and HTML format site maps, integrate social media and make sure that the site or application is being monitored and backed up properly.

Rothman & Associates also manages our own servers, our clients servers, third-party servers and other website and web application hosting environments, that power the web sites and web applications we build for our customers. As a result, our clients don't have to work with a separate hosting company and website design and development company. Our web development staff is comprised of numerous web development professionals who have years of experience with HTML markup, network security configuration, client side coding, server side coding and database technology. Complex computer programming languages such as JavaScript (JS), e-commerce development and interrelated web development techniques such as Ajax are child's play for our web developers.

At the beginning of web development projects we make sure that our clients understand the difference between web site design and web site development, which are two distinct phases and processes. Our project managers, graphic artists, interface designers, writers, SEO specialists, photographers and videographers work together with our customers to complete the process of creating the look, feel, and branding elements of our client's website. This collaboration ensures that we design new, innovative, aesthetically stunning websites that just look great and are simple to use by visitors to the site.

Our website design team is comprised of HTML5 and user-centered design experts who are proficient at using the basic markup languages used to display and structure content, images, video, hyperlinks, applications and forms on the World Wide Web. To complete the production of websites, our website developers work with our website designers to pull all the components together. Our developers are extremely adept at using integrated development environments and software frameworks such as Microsoft's Visual Studio and .Net. Our web site developers employ the most current web technologies such as CMSs (Content Management Systems), HTML5 standards, JavaScript, service-based architectures, CSS, Web APIs, CGI, PHP, Java, and ASP to run highly functional web sites, their corresponding applications and distributed network applications over HTTP (or HTTPS) from servers to browsers.

One example of our website application development work is called “Advantage WEDD.” We built this custom database application with interactive features for the Cuyahoga Community College Workforce and Economic Development Division. Take a look at www.CorporateCollege.com which is the public website.
