Advisor & Management Consultant
Your CTO and WebMaster OnCall.
Add us to your team! Would a second opinion be helpful? Maybe you are blocked by a problem or new project. Talk about it with someone with decades of experience. We have seen it and heard it all. And we understand your everyday business language and can translate tech speak for you. Just a half hour chat or phone call might be enough. Billed hourly or a flat weekly fee that fits your budget and the scope of the engagement.
Even for small organizations with no public facing software other than a website, they face dozens of technical decisions that are frequently re-visited throughout the year. We make those decisions mitigating the frustration so often experienced with tech.
We get to know your organization, and then we stay engaged.
We pick up the phone. Yes, really. Often times, nothing takes the place of a two way conversation. Not chat, not chat bots, not emails, not support ticket systems.
Price: $100 per week. Up to 5 hours. 30 to 60 minute virtual meetings using Google Meet or Zoom or phone. We will manage your website(s) at your discretion. The work week is Mon-Sun, 8am to 9pm PST. We invoice at the end of the week. Order through our Contact page.
CTO – A chief technology officer (CTO) oversees the entire information technology department and integrates business needs and requirements into IT planning and operations.
“Meta Platforms Inc. is asking many of its managers and directors to transition to individual contributor jobs or leave the company as it tries to become more efficient, according to people familiar with the matter.
The process is known internally as a “flattening,” the people said. Higher-level managers are sharing the directive with their subordinates in the coming weeks, separate from the company’s regular performance reviews that are currently underway, said the people, who asked not to be named discussing a matter that wasn’t public. Individual contributors aren’t in charge of others, and instead focus on tasks like coding, designing and research.”
We can usually logon and implement a change for you. No need to delegate.
Manage your company and project data.
Can’t find anything suitable already built? AXEO specializes in database applications including cloud based, software as a service (SaaS) systems. Custom, build to suit systems, so you can remain efficient and competitive in your marketplace.
Note that a number of successful SaaS applications started as internal custom systems and then were commercialized. Think of it as subletting some of your office space.
What is your idea for the next great software application?
Rapid application development and live prototypes means your system and ideas are visible from the start of the project.
Maybe your office uses an application now and nobody likes it. You could do a better user interface, a better user experience, a better workflow and win market share.
“I think if we look back at ourselves in a few years — maybe even a year — it will feel like we were primates kind of mashing rocks together to make fire. In two years, it’ll be weird that you had to click all these buttons in Salesforce and navigate around and that it didn’t do more for you.” — Benchmark, Miles Grimshaw
Is your web site doing all that it can do?
Design, construction, maintenance, content management.
Responsive, mobile-friendly. A web site is a software application.
Consider WordPress for more than just a blog.
Are you ready for more than just a digital brochure?
Is your site accessible and ADA compliant?
On time, and on budget for more than 20 years.
To arrange a no charge, introductory discussion contact us here.
A variety of CRMs, general and vertical are on the way.
A lack of needless features is one of our main features.
“However, its high cost and complexity may be a barrier for some businesses.”
How to Buy
Specifications and the app evolve over time, you pay our hourly rate. You own the system, or we partner.
Fixed Monthly Fee
Coded to your specifications, you pay a set monthly fee like rent. We own the system.
Fixed Project Fee
Coded to your specifications, milestone payments. You own the system.
A very affordable blended hourly rate
You are only charged for one dev hour even when a Director is engaged with the Developer(s).
Backup developer(s) stay “in the loop” at no charge.
Tools and Frameworks
We employ the latest tools, platforms, and productivity frameworks across a broad spectrum.
No Code / Low Code / Pro Code
“Software is no longer hand crafted line-by-line.“
General office applications.
You might be able to manage your data with some basic lists and simple office applications.
No code, low code.
Database as a Service, database first.
Put some forms with controls over your lists to better manage your data. Maybe have multiple users with permissions and roles.
– Gutenberg / Spectra
Even more control and security is needed. Pixel level control over the user interface. Numerous and complex business rules. Numerous and often complex features and functions and integrations.
HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap
PHP – Laravel, Symfony, Yii, WordPress, WooCommerce
Python – Django
Ruby – Ruby on Rails
Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, Linode, DigitalOcean, Heroku.
C#, ASP.NET, WPM, Core
SQL Server, Azure, Visual Studio.
You choose a development approach that suits you.
RAD, Agile/X or more formal, or a combination of both.
Extensive industry specific experience.
CRM, CMS, project Management, practice management is our forte with vertical markets experience in health care, inventory control, real estate sales, loan processing, and property management, construction, and law to name a few.
Project management and consulting are available if you already have a development team.
Low communication overhead saves money and frustration, and speeds completion.
7/24 Work Week
US based with a globally distributed team to maintain a 7/24 work week.
Talent is world-wide.
We provide already written code to jump start your project at no additional charge including black boxes, snippets, widgets, components, and community samples. Note that we see many projects where you are being charged for these items — that’s not fair.
Minimal requirements and specifications are often all that’s needed. User Stories instead of Use Cases. Detailed project documentation is expensive and time consuming to produce, delays the project, and is often unnecessary. If your developer doesn’t “get it”, no amount of documentation will suffice.
You get a team acting like full stack senior developers.
It is practically impossible for any one programner to stay current in all aspects of today’s development tools and platforms.
We are NOT an agency
No work is subcontracted. You are working with, and in constant communication with the Director.
Just as we spin-up and spin-down servers, we can also quickly spin-up a team for your project(s). We can usually start the same day if urgent. Up to a 4-person team assigned and working within 24 hours and larger teams in 2 to 5 days. No minimum time or dollar amount commitments required. You can reduce the engagement or end the engagement at any time with no advance notice.
We invoice weekly. If you are not happy with the progress for any reason, the previous week’s work is no charge. You keep the work though.
Design, build, manage, content, maintenance
A 2-layer approach
Your Datacenter + AXEO. Another service by popular demand. Our customers asked for managed, business class Web hosting services. We are here for you with products and services not available from generic datacenters and web hosting services.
You can keep your web site and your domain name where they are now. You can also move one or both if you prefer.
We can assist you indirectly or you can add us as a technical user to your accounts so we can login directly.
No lock in. You own it. All services are subscribed to by you in your name.

Domain Name Registration
There are a number of good Registrars. We have worked with Google Domains, Network Solutions, Enom, Register and GoDaddy to name a few.
Often times, your domain name registration services and datacenter services (web hosting, email …) are combined from one company. Example: Google Domains, Google Sites
We make that easy too. Contact us here with your organization name and contact info. Include your domain name if you have one. If you have an existing web site, we need access to help you. If you want a new web hosting account, you can choose the datacenter, or onboard by clicking one of the links on this page and setup your account. There are many good datacenters and web hosts to choose from.
Note that you can leave your domain name with your current Registrar and simply point to your new servers.
Why Basic Plan?
You are a DIY’er. You do your own taxes and your own website. But, you need to talk in general about the latest tech now and then. Social media boards and online videos for example are just not helpful and could be harmful. The tools, features, functions, and support for DIY are there to assist you at many datacenters.
If you need something more complex such as custom programming, we are here for you with task-based IT services billed hourly ($50) with a half hour minimum.
Why Content Plan?
You DIY a lot of stuff, but not IT, your time is valuable. Traditional self-help or vending machine like services are not for everyone and may actually cost far more directly and indirectly than advertised. Navigating cryptic screens and routines can be time consuming and frustrating.
With flat monthly fee Content Plan, you have all of your datacenter self-service tools and support at your disposal including industry leading control panels like cPanel. And you can email or vmail or text or submit via our web site questions and requests to AXEO. We will get on it for you ASAP.
For example: You are on the way home and you forgot to setup that new email address. Maybe you could do it yourself if you could remember how. After all, it’s not something you do everyday. You simply leave us a vmail or send an email with the email address. We will set it up for you.
Most Web sites are now “built” and in some sort of maintenance mode. Small, periodic changes like a new phone number, upload a company newsletter, change to text. Not all companies need (or can afford) a Web Master to make simple changes and updates. WebMaster OnCall for a flat fee provides up to 30 updates per month, or one per day on average.
A basic e-commerce system that employs popular, free-to-use, WordPress components.
If you prefer a SaaS, multi-tenant system, view a Shopify demo here (pass = awdeop).
We can setup this system for you to manage, or we can manage all aspects for you for one low monthly fee. We setup your catalog with categories and products initially. Then you communicate changes by email or text and we make the changes for you.
A Food-to-Go demo with Options, Add-ons, and Store Hours features.
Contact us to discuss the size and volume of your store and a flat-fee price for management services.
No more features war
We are not aware of any useful features or functions that any major, popular datacenter does not provide. Today, it is hard to go wrong.
There are many good datacenters and web hosts to choose from. Links to a few that we like can be found on this page. We are constantly monitoring the datacenter industry. For general web hosting and related services including e-commerce, consider the GreenGeeks datacenter, WordPress and WooCommerce software. For a pure software-as-a-service (SaaS) company for your e-commerce centric site, consider the Shopify datacenter and software.
