Stunning Design and Powerful Functionality

WordPress is the world’s largest open-source CMS, supported by a massive online community responsible for more than 75 million websites. An endless selection of stunning DIVI child-themes saves hundreds of hours in design and development time, upon which you can build your personalised web solution.

Powerful Cutting-Edge Functionality
A growing library of pre-tested plugins and third-party integrations ensure the latest technology and full power of the internet is at your fingertips. Testing ensures plugins and apps are compatible with the latest software updated and fully-responsive on popular browsers and mobile devices.
Mobile Friendly
Every site design by ScoopWEB is fully responsible and mobile friendly, allowing for design elements to be modified for different devices, and includes one-touch phone, email and social media links to appear on the bottom of the screen for specific device types.
Unlimited Design Options and 3rd Party Access
If you have a preferred web designer or developer, they can have full access to your ScoopWEB website. CSS makes it possible to modify themes beyond the parameters set by the original design. However, due their bespoke nature, these fixes do not fall under the standard ‘hosting’ guidelines and assurances.
Easy-To-Use Editing Tools
Simple front-end ‘click & drag’ editing tools make it possible for non-technical users to easily manage content, modify design and create new pages. This is supported with comprehensive training, detailed manuals and online tutorials, putting the power of the internet in your hands.
Training and Practical Processes for Effective Operations
Detailed manuals, online tutorials and personalised training provide your team with the tools you need to update content, build new pages and modify design. If your web manager leaves, we will train the next one. If you want us to help, a pre-paid support package ensures we are there when you need us.
Hosting, Maintenance, Performance Management
ScoopWEB charges a monthly fee for Hosting, Maintenance and Performance-management. This includes everything required for us to keep your website operating at peak-performance. When software updates, we update it. If your website breaks, we fix it. When new technology comes along, we integrate it. No nasty surprises. No time required. No unexpected invoices.

Pre-Paid Design, Development, Consulting Services

Support packages provide your web manager and team with someone to call while still training and learning more complex tasks, so daily tasks are not held up. Read more…
DIY versus ScoopWEB versus Ground-Up Design
There is always plenty of online conversation about the pros and cons of different web development CMS and the best approach to web development. It is a matter of opinion and very much depends on the needs of the client. In reality, many design firms and agencies recommendations are based on the technology they are most familiar with, rather than what is best for the clients. Based on our research and experience, this is our view of what’s available and why we chose the combination of tools best suited for ScoopWEB and our clients.

Yoast - WordPress Most Powerful SEO App

YOAST is integrated into all ScoopWEB websites providing: a breakdown of your SEO performance on every page; lists of recommended key words; other key tools for improving your Google ranking.

Payment Gateways and Accounting Integrations

The power, efficiencies and cost-savings of the web will often necessitate the setup, integration and management of online payment gateways and accounting packages. It takes a lot of work behind the scenes to create a highly-automated and simplified process for your team, but the savings are significant. We believe in these systems to the extent that we use them for our own business processes.

Xero

The business trend is away from labour-heavy, non-integrated desk top systems to online accounting packages. Xero is one of the most popular and provides multiple benefits in terms of automated processing. Transition from MYOB and other packages is relatively simple and can be largely automated, depending upon your version of MYOB and the state of your accounts.

Payment Gateway Integrations

Payment gateways can be set up in a matter of days with the most cost-effective and internationally renowned systems being provided by non-bank lenders. The integration of systems such as uCollect and Stripe allow for credit cards and bank direct debits to be automated, including the allocation of payments to the appropriate debtor and creditor invoices.

Bookkeeping Services

Once the appropriate software and processes are in place, the out-sourcing of bookkeeping to an online bookkeeping business can result in significant cost-savings. However, not all businesses or their bookkeeping firms are updated with and/or set up to assist with online booking systems. Referrals can be made upon request.

Optional Features

There is an almost unlimited range of functionality available through ScoopWEB. Some of the more commonly requested features are outlined below.

Language Translation

Static pages, online guides and menus can be translated into one of 81 languages via Google Translator. This is an automated service and not perfect, but does supply an extra degree of service for non-English speakers. The Scoop Guide menus are being systematically checked and modified by professional translators to ensure accurate definitions are conveyed at all times.

Password Protected Pages

You can elect to password protect pages on your website so that website visitors must enter the correct password before the page/content will be displayed.

Online Forms

We can utilise the class-leading Gravity Forms plugin to create a myriad of advanced forms for your website, including for signup and submission. Form entries are recorded in the WordPress database for later review and action, and advanced confirmation and notifications can be configured.
