Mission

"Building Websites.  Connecting People."  Our mission is to bring people together through website technology, fostering real human relationships between businesses/customers and churches/members.  At SiteWizard, we understand that relationships are the heart of any organization.  SiteWizard CMS is designed to increase engagement and participation.  If you're a business, you want to have an open dialog with your customers.  If you're a church, you want your members to interact with each other through your website.

A SiteWizard website is more than an online brochure; it is a communication tool to help you build and manage your online community.  SiteWizard CMS offers social tools including member registration, user profiles, member directory, social groups, activity journal, member messaging, blogs with user comments, discussion forums, testimonials, event registration forms, prayer requests / praise reports and more.  Our social sharing tools let users easily share your content with over 300 social networks.  We've also integrated with Twitter, Facebook and Google+ so users can register on your website using their existing social accounts.

Philosophy

SiteWizard operates under the principle of Colossians 3:23:  "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters."  We treat our customers with respect and fairness, providing top-notch services at reasonable prices.  We are real people who care about your business, church or non-profit agency.

We sincerely want our customers to have a successful online presence for their business or church.  We stand alongside our customers, ready and able to help.  We want to be your business partner, not "just another vendor."  With SiteWizard, you can expect personalized service that you won't get with other website providers.

History

SiteWizard began in 1997 as the sole proprietorship of founder Kevin Lawry.  While holding other full-time positions as a software engineer and a Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Lawry still managed this web design and programming consultancy as a side-business.

In early 2000, Lawry had the idea for a church oriented website content management system (CMS) which became the foundation for SiteWizard CMS.  He tinkered with ideas and code for several years and evaluated emerging CMS technologies.  Eventually the market and technologies were ready to move forward with product development.

SiteWizard LLC was incorporated in 2009 in preparation for development and release of SiteWizard CMS.  We began beta implementation of the product in mid-2010 with a few early adopter customers.  By January 2011 we released SiteWizard CMS to the public, available for purchase directly through our company website.

Moving forward, we continually strive to increase value to our customers with new features, training videos and marketing resources.  Keep up with the latest developments on our blog, or follow us on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or Google+.
