Commercial Liquidators

Commercial Liquidators requested a website that would allow them to tell the world who they are. We built them a website that gives a clear mission statement and purpose, displays pictures of sample inventory, interactive mapping section to direct customers to their warehouse, an on-site video that explains their services, and a contact section to allow customers to contact them by email, phone, mail, or fax. In addition, we provide web hosting and professional email accounts for every employee, using the company's domain name @louisianaliquidators.com.

Ethos Design

Ethos Design wanted a website that would allow them to sell house plans and construction documents online. We developed a database driven system that allows them to create a large database of house plans that is easy to manage. It also includes a shopping cart system and PayPal integration system that we developed to allow Ethos Design to securely accept credit card payments online. Upon purchase, Ethos Design customers are given a username and password and can submit changes to be made to their construction documents.

Windows Information Directory

Windows Information Directory is a public service project, owned and developed by Merak Web Services. It was recently completely redesigned to use Python and Django and to incorporate a new visual style. The site features numerous pages, all controlled by an easy to use administration page. The site also features a blog and comment system, and an automatic RSS feed mechanism that is automatically updated, all developed by Merak Web Services.

Merak Services

This is the site you're looking at right now. It was developed to promote our services online to a broader audience. Using the same technology we use for every site we develop, and hosted on the same servers we use to host our clients sites, this site serves as an example of what we can accomplish for you. It also features an easy to use administrative page to allow easy changes to the content of the website without needing to know any code (not that we have any trouble there!).

Steve's Mobile Detail

Steve's Mobile Detail of Kansas City wanted a simple, inexpensive website to advertise their services online. We provided them with a site that explains their services, their price structure, location, contact information, and a few testimonials, all for a reasonable price. We also built a section of the site dedicated to listing cars for sale. An additional requirement was that it needed to be easy to edit by anyone without having to know the technical details. We accomplished this by providing an easy to use administration page that allows the owners to edit the site from any web browser, anywhere in the world.

Tiger Search

Tiger Search is owned and operated by Merak Web Services. Still in development, it will soon provide search results from millions of the most popular websites on the web. It will also provide image search, by indexing the images found on the pages it visits, and video search, by indexing YouTube and other popular video sharing sites.

Tiger Search is a demonstration of the type of services we can provide for you.

Real Stoned Jewelry and Hairstyles

Real Stoned Jewelry and Hairstyles' owner Joan Ahlborn wanted customers to have a way to find her. After moving from one hair salon to another, Ahlborn realized the importance of providing a way for existing clients to find her at her new location. In addition, Ahlborn required an online store for selling her jewelry. We provided a website that fulfilled all her requirements, plus web hosting.
