Many of the technology projects we are working on contain some web-based component. Intranets are now ubiquitous in organizations and represent an efficient way to distribute database information to large groups of people easily. They are also being used to support fully functional information systems platforms. Stone Six Solutions specializes in application development using Microsoft's ASP.NET technology to develop server-based solutions.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Approximately 70% of all business data has some geographic component (The Gartner Group). GIS helps businesses to visualize and understand the geography behind their data. Consider the difference between viewing a list of sales figures by city and viewing a map of the state with various cities rendered in colors representing sales ranges. The visualization of data can often uncover hidden patterns and knowledge that can help you better service customers, locate opportunities, and understand how the geography around us affects our business. Stone Six Solutions has advanced skills in geographic data analysis and visualization with the MapInfo suite of products.
The data that we use is becoming increasingly mobile. Our pockets are beginning to bulge with the technology that keeps us connected to our business. Stone Six Solutions develops technology solutions that run on the Microsoft Windows PocketPC platform which powers leading handheld devices. We can help you take along all the data you need on sales calls, service calls, and other off-site business travel.

Our flexible team of expert specialists and our strategic partnership affiliations allow us to be involved in the smallest web presence project to the largest interactive web applications. Projects that we work on customarily fit into one of three categories: enhanced marketing efforts, detailed web development, and interactive/e-commerce implementations.
Enhanced Marketing Effort
The on-line market is growing at a thrilling rate. If your competitor has a presence on the web and you do not, you are exposed to a serious market disadvantage. Your customers want more detailed information about your products and services. They are looking on-line for that information before resorting to more conventional sources. If your information is only available in those conventional sources, many of your potential customers will never get to your listings, having already found what they are looking for on-line.
At Stone Six Solutions we will help you extend your current marketing efforts to the on-line medium. We will design, develop and implement a web site that effectively communicates your message. Your current and future customers will have a place to access all of the details that help them form a lasting relationship with your organization. You will be able to easily educate them on your products and services, answer their questions before they ask, inform them of specials you are offering and give them some insight into why they will continue to benefit from what you have to offer.
Detailed Web Development

Your web site may be seamlessly integrated into your business processes.

Electronic messaging, discussion groups, and searchable knowledge bases can aid your customers while reducing the need for costly support resources. Your customers will be pleased that you have empowered them and you will be able to concentrate on growth rather than the maintenance of your business.
