New requirements for universal design came in June 2019
By 2020, all Norwegian websites must be universally designed. As of 2019, universal design was incorporated into Norwegian law and it became a requirement for all public websites.
We know the regulations and have since 2018 developed websites in accordance with universal design. Universal design should ensure that people with different needs can read the page using aids. In Norway, 3 out of 10 have challenges when it comes to sight and hearing. This is 30% of your customers!
Wordpress represents 60% of the market.
We mainly use the world’s most used CMS for websites: WordPress. We have developed a number of different solutions, which cover very different needs. WordPress is a solution that makes it quick to implement a new website. Opportunity for fantastic design and a number of plug-ins makes many customers prefer WordPress. We have developed a number of our own plug-ins and solutions for WordPress that make our solutions more secure and more scalable. In recent years, we have sharpened our deliveries towards public activities and found that WordPress is an excellent tool for developing a public website.

Did you know that 70% of users who visit your website use a smartphone?
For a public website, it is important to think about mobile customization. We use the term “Mobile first” and by that we mean that web design should be as good on mobile as on desktop. Your customers will find all available information, on all screen sizes. When using mobile-adapted design or as we say in technical language: responsive design, navigation and readability will work the same on all devices.
We have expertise in integrations and can create customized integrations with most solutions. WordPress also has a large selection of integration plugins. We have made integrations with AD, Super Office, Elastic Search, webmegler, mailchimp and ibooking. This list is constantly expanding and we can integrate all services that have APIs to a public website.
