TourWriter is well known in the tourism field as the developer of one of the best business management software packages for tour operators. They came to us with a request to merge their fixed-width main site and a separate blog site into a single responsive site that they could easily manage themselves.

We gave them a new responsive WordPress site that retains most of the existing design elements. The new site was built for performance and security, to replace a slow site that had been hacked. This client also changed their CRM provider and much of the project involved creating forms that connected to Zoho CRM.

This project also involved considerable SEO work, including microdata, 301 redirects from the old sites, and careful planning of category names and page URLs.
