What our customers say:

Web ideas were the ideal partners to work with for the re-design and development of our new website. After considering a number of providers we were very pleased to have the opportunity to meet and talk with Raie who took the time to understand our business, our customers and objectives. As a small business, we were looking to engage with a company that specifically understood the needs of a small business which was demonstrated in not only a competitive price, but a high level of customer service and some welcomed guidance along the way.

After out initial discussion with Raie, the design phase was handed to Carina, who provided a design that exceeded the directors expectations. Throughout this process we were in constant contact with Carina, who continually provided suggestions and feedback to ensure our business objectives would be met. 

We are delighted with our new website and very appreciative of the customer service that was provided to us by Web Ideas. Thank you, and we would have no hesitation to recommend Web ideas to any prospective business looking for website services.
