The parent company of Vipa Solutions, an established web services firm, was seeing the same trend among advertising agencies, a need for dynamic web services. Agencies have traditionally been focused on traditional media like print, TV, and radio. The agencies’ clients transitioned from requesting traditional media to static websites and now are requiring dynamic web services like user-driven content, social media, viral marketing, and online shopping. With agencies lacking the capabilities to offer their clients the tools necessary for the development of web services, Vipa Solutions was created. Vipa Solutions partners with marketing, advertising, and PR agencies to help with the implementation of web services.
Vipa Solutions has developed and benchmarked proven best practices for the successful launch of technology based projects. Vipa Solutions consults with clients and provides proven checklists, steps and processes enabling agencies to quote, document and manage projects ensuring overall success.
At the core of Vipa Solutions success is Vipa Suite, the proven web-based software as a service environment. The Vipa Suite service provides proven solutions for content management, eCommerce, online registration, custom forms and databases, reporting, communication and much more. This system allows agencies to manage their customer websites from one centralized secure web-based environment reducing maintenance, communication and infrastructure needs.
The Vipa Suite application is a hosted service providing agencies and their clients a hassle free IT environment. This model ensures agencies are focused on the needs of clients and not technical issues related to servers, IT staff and programming. Vipa Solutions also provides value adding services for growing agencies including CSS implementation, deployment support, Vipa Academy training, agency support and custom component development.
