In all three cases, Keene Systems delivered outstanding turnkey systems that were flexible and open-ended."

    Our DotNetNuke Strategy

    Many of our clients will receive the most value for their development dollars by leveraging a pre-existing portal development platform like DotNetNuke instead of developing everything from scratch. There's no need to reinvent the wheel. This allows us to simply “configure” many of your requirements and save your development budget for features that require custom programming. In the end you will have a fully scalable, database driven website built on Microsoft best practices that will have significantly more capabilities than your original requirements call for. It is not uncommon that 80% of a web development project disappears when we reevaluate it in the context of DotNetNuke. This combined with our hybrid team approach gives us an unmatched ability to deliver quality systems for an exceptional price. We deliver value!
