Our history, vision and values
GWS started in 2003 in Bakersfield, California with the vision to help companies take advantage of marketing on the Internet. Most website developers begin with a background in a technical field like graphic design or programming and generally do very good work in their field. We felt at GWS that in order for a website to work the best there must be a stronger connection to the business objectives of a company. So, we have built our company service on this foundation:
Understand the business objectives first and then plan the website design and Internet marketing around these objectives.
So, in order to do this effectively we will always have personnel in our company with all of these respective skills:
- Business management
- Graphic design
- Internet marketing
Our strategic advantage is to be able to merge all of these skill sets into a powerful resource for our customers. We are not just a Bakersfield web design company or a website development company or an applications company. We produce solutions for companies that take advantage of the Internet so that the companies will have a positive ROI on their investment in that solution. And, we measure those results for the customer to be a strategic partner for their business.
Having the skill to do the work and to help our clients gain new customers and financial rewards is not enough. We also need to have the kinds of values that will allow us to endure for many years to come. Therefore we ascribe to the following values:
- We respect all people no matter what is their background or where they are from. We extend this to all customers, employees, vendors, contractors, competitors and anyone who calls or walks through our doorway.
- Integrity is not a choice as we will be honest in everything that we do, everything that we say and everything that we write about on paper or e-mails.
- Our customers will get priority for our time. If they need us, we will be there for them. Phone calls or e-mails will be returned as soon as possible and not later than the next business day.
- We will participate and give back to our community. Giving is always more rewarding than receiving and we will freely give of our time and resources to benefit those who are less fortunate than we are.
- We will be dependable. We must always do what we say. If there is an emergency or an interruption that causes a delay, we will communicate quickly about it so there are no surprises.
- We will be fair and competitive in our pricing and strive to always provide good value to our customers, as our goal is to have long-term relationships.
- We believe in learning and will strive to keep up to date on the latest trends and technology in our field.
