CIT develops custom business software solutions using ASP.NET and SQL Databases.  We also design websites.

We have made a little trip.  CIT is now also in Kiev, Ukraine. More info soon.

We are redesigning this website.  Please come back soon!

We are selective about new customers.  We deliver excellence to excellent companies.  Contact us for a quote.

  • Good service in the internet age

    It is tempting to proclaim CIT's technical prowness on this primary tab.  Our skills are top-notch and current, but skills do not set us apart from the competition.  Many other companies, large and small, have top-notch current skills.

    It is tempting to proclaim competitive prices on this primary tab.  We are local but we can compete on price against the offshore companies.  If you may wonder how this is possible, it is because one of the original rules in Information Technology is still true today: 

    A good software developer is more productive than 2 average software developers and costs less.  Mistakes are expensive.

    Despite these temptations, we proclaim that CIT's primary advantage over our competition is not prowness or price; it is service.  Our service is better because we are small and because we are local and because we care.  This is not just a job to us and we do not outsource to people we have not personally met.  Our customers are not faceless people and we are not a front for developers in Asia.

  • Video Recording and Production

    OK, we confess.  Video does not pay the bills.  It only pays for the vacation and is more like a paying hobby than a regular business.  We also rarely do weddings or similar events, this is more typical: CIT Services

    There is also a lot more information about video on the main menu at the top of the page.

  • Website Design, Development and Promotion in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New England

    Design is choosing a theme, a color scheme, fonts and appearance.  It is also about choosing a target audience.

    Development is coding to meet the design goals.  There is considerable overlap between design, development and promotion.  For example:

    • A website that is poorly coded cannot meet promotion or design standards.  Unless the coding is free of common syntax errors, it may look fine in Chrome but terrible in a Microsoft or Apple browser.  If a website is poorly coded it will not meet Google standards and be docked.

    • A design may be impractical when coding starts.  Or a design may be too expensive to develop.  Everyone has a budget.

    • Design, Development and Search Engine Optimization (promotion) are not standalone sections of a website.  There is overlap and it is an iterative process.

    The same person should do all 3 functions, even if it takes a little longer or costs a little more.  Having a sales person do your design and someone in India doing the development is a recipe for a website that performs very poorly in its primary task, finding customers for your business.

  • Microsoft Office, QuickBooks and a good business card is not enough to run a successful small business.

    Whether you need a little help setting up a server or you need a custom business application, we can deliver what you need.

    CIT Services is more than a website development company.  In fact, website design has become what we do between software development projects.  Our specialties are ASP.NET with C# and Microsoft SQL Server.

    If you prefer another database, we can also support Oracle and PostgreSQL, but we do not believe in using insecure and under-powered databases like MySQL or Microsoft Access.

    If you prefer another development environment we are certified in Java although it has been a few years.  C# and Java are very similar.  We do not believe in using under-powered or insecure development languages like Visual Basic or PHP.

    Our goal is to deliver solid and secure systems, not a cheap app and not something that gets us out of bed in the middle of the night.  Business is not a game and you, as a businessperson, should think twice about contracting with a company that uses tools designed for cheap mobile apps or video games.  ASP.NET, Java, SQL Server, Oracle and PostgreSQL are all business grade development tools.  Other than these 5, very little else is business grade.

  • Most website designers won't show their work.  Please take a look at our work; we are proud of these websites.  There is a full list on the Website Services page.

  • The announcement that we have started your new website or software development project should be here. 

    Why don't you contact us and we can get started?  Why procrastinate?
