is a Detroit-based company owned by Jim Charbonneau and they have been in the IT world since 2002. They did a phenomenal job building and designing www.DetroitBookFest.com for us and we highly recommend them to others.
“We do large-scale IT design and project management for clients like Detroit Public Schools, Henry Ford Health System, Flagstar Bank, etc,” says Jim. “We do data center work for Fortune 500 companies. We install and maintain CCTV security systems, access control and burglar alarms for commercial clients in addition to creating websites.”
KDZ also creates beautiful, functional, user-friendly websites for a variety of clients including individuals, events, small businesses, non-profit organizations, etc.
The websites work equally well on desktops and mobile (ie: smartphones and tablets), incorporate search engine optimization (SEO) and employ responsive web design via WordPress. KDZ can customize and have a full network of resources from Java to custom PHP works for you.
Jim Charbonneau explains:
“At KDZ Consulting, our core business has been large-scale IT construction and project management. We have built out over 5 million square feet of some of the most complex IT systems in the United States.”
“We also do website design, development, re-design, SEO search engine optimization, complete graphics (both for web & print), etc. The estimated turn-around time varies based on your needs and the complexities of the website.”
“We can host your website with our “All in One” inclusive package that we offer or you could self-host using one of the various hosting companies like HostGator or GoDaddy.”
“The goal is that you retain control of your site/domain at all times. We do not make you host or buy your domains through us like some of the others out there. Ours is a partnership, not a hostage situation as many of our clients have told us about other companies.”
“A typical website would be a simple 5-page content management site. We can also do securely encrypted e-commerce websites for small businesses. Most of our customers use us to get the site up and running and from there we teach you to run the day-to-day operations side of it. That way is the most cost-friendly to the customer.”
