Menges Group Website Development, Hosting, Support & Maintenance Proposal
The Menges Group (MG) is seeking to engage Brandit, LLC (Brandit) to help the MG team create, launch and maintain a modern and easily-maintained WordPress-powered website that follows the MG’s branding and design guidelines, as well as the most modern design trends and multimedia design practices. This website will be built with a WordPress page builder and visual editor that can be easily edited and maintained MG’s internal team, and has built-in ADA compliance tools to ensure broad usability across all devices.
Brandit is a full-service website design & development company that specializes in building best-in-class websites using a validated WordPress platform built on scalable AWS hosting containers.
Our company started over 5 years ago after our founder struggled to get a basic website built. He found that in the world of website development, a large portion of service providers are building websites that are either built on proprietary platforms that lock clients’ into expensive hosting plans, or they are built with hard-coded templates making them extremely difficult to edit by your internal team without coding knowledge.
This motivated our team to create a WordPress platform that empowers internal teams to edit their website easily while leveraging a powerful cloud platform and WordPress framework. Our websites combine WordPress’ most widely used page-builder with a validated framework of plugins that are tailored to your business goals. This framework is easy-to-use, SEO optimized and capable of producing some of the most advanced design elements available on the web today. We also offer fully-managed hosting plans that run on dedicated AWS and Digital Ocean containers which are capable of scaling to millions of monthly users.
