WordPress is by far the most popular content management system (CMS) in the world. It powers 34% of all websites on the Internet and 60% of all content-managed websites*. Its easy-to-use administrative interface and extensive library of community-supported plugins offering robust features such as eCommerce have driven its success.
N-VisionIT’s development team are experts in WordPress. We have experience in all areas of WordPress including theming, plugin installations, custom plugin development, performance monitoring & remediation, security monitoring, integrations with third party APIs and software, implementation of bilingualism using a variety of plugins such as WPML and qTranslate-X, and much, much more.
One of the most popular applications for WordPress sites is the implementation of eCommerce functionality. WordPress itself offers desirable search-engine optimization (SEO) characteristics and an easy-to-use administration system. These same benefits can be extended to a product or service catalog, including the capability for users to purchase online.
N-VisionIT’s development team has experience incorporating eCommerce functionality for a variety of product types, including physical products, digital (downloadable) products, and event-registration purchases.
Popular plugins to achieve these features include WooCommerce, WP eCommerce, and Tickera.
It is very important for many businesses and government organizations in the Ottawa area to incorporate bilingualism into their WordPress-powered websites. N-VisionIT’s web development team is very experienced in enabling bilingualism. We ensure that when a user switches from language-to-language that they stay on the same page in both languages. We are also capable of incorporating bilingualism in custom WordPress plugins that we develop.
Popular plugins to achieve bilingualism in WordPress include WPML and qTranslate-X.
It is common to include event listings within the WordPress websites we build. In many cases, this includes the ability for website visitors to register for the events, purchase tickets online, and receive their tickets digitally. Additionally, event organizers can have the ability to ask custom registration questions on a per-event basis and track attendance to events for the purposes of continuing education certification. The N-VisionIT development team has incorporated these features successfully and can do the same for your organization!
Another popular feature for organizations in the Ottawa area is the inclusion of membership management. This is particularly useful for associations. Our web development team has incorporated membership management plugins such as MemberPress and WP-Members to achieve this. These systems offer automated routines to remind members of upcoming renewals and allow the members to renew their membership online. They offer organizations the ability to easily collect payment and produce reports about their various membership levels and the members themselves.
N-VisionIT’s programming team have created many custom-built solutions within WordPress. This includes the creation of custom plugins, custom themes, and integrations with proprietary & third party systems.
A few examples of these integrations include:
- The integration of a user registration and login system that verifies new users against a proprietary in-house member database.
- Integration of clients’ WordPress websites with their mobile apps to ensure they only need to enter information once and it powers multiple systems.
- Integration of an industry-specific fulfillment systems allowing users to purchase custom-designed cabinetry & clothing online.

N-VisionIT offers training to clients to ensure they are able to maintain the WordPress website we design & build for them. These training sessions are performed in person and we also offer reference documentation and ongoing support as needed after the website is launched.
Ongoing Maintenance & Security Monitoring
Because of its popularity, WordPress can be a target for hackers. As a result, it is important to keep WordPress up to date to ensure that any vulnerabilities are patched. We offer monthly packages whereby our development team will check for plugin updates and apply them on a regular basis so you can rest easy knowing your website is up-to-date with applicable security patches. Additionally, our security monitoring plans include additional “hardening” to ensure that common methods of attack are closed or minimized through best-practices.
