About us

Well-connected is a New Zealand-based IT consultancy established in 2002.

We help our customers in creative and innovative ways to build web presence, strategy, and infrastructure.

We focus on business needs, compliance with quality and security standards, project time frames, and budget constraints.

Technologies

We are committed to free and open standards that bridge web applications and mobile devices.

Part of our effort goes into research and development of frameworks, tools, infrastructure technologies, algorithms, design patterns, and best practice methodologies.

Our websites and applications are based on a framework using a stack of mostly open-source software technologies.

At the heart of our framework architecture is a server-side model-view-controller framework that dynamically generates web content and business applications using HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, and PHP.

Privacy

We respect the privacy of our clients and users. We have adopted standards for our websites and applications to justify and preserve the trust placed in us:

We do not collect or pass on information not purely required for the provisioning of our services.

We do not send unsolicited materials to our clients and users.

We never request confidential information from our users, other than the login credentials at the start of an application session.

Applications use server-based session control and state management, and do not persist state beyond the duration of a session.
