technology showcase

At Duke City Software we love to supply you with the latest technology. We can provide you with QR codes on your advertising and business cards which direct mobile users to your home page or specially designed landing pages. Of course we can track your traffic to the landing pages as well as all other pages. We can display the content on your website differently for mobile users to enhance their experience on your website while at the same time maintaining only one copy of your site. We use open source software or off-the-shelf software if you prefer and integrate that with your website to give you applications like online chat and social media integration. You can link to Facebook and show your latest Facebook updates on your web page. If you wish to have a blog and show your latest entries on other pages, we can do that too. We also integrate your website or your data with Google maps, and you can host ads on your website as well.

We specialize in custom software from surveys to complex database applications.

And of course, we offer the basic technologies you need to keep your business running smoothly: shopping carts, calendars, credit card processing, content management systems, audio, video, photo galleries and slide shows.

New Mexico Health Insurance Alliance

We have created an online health insurance quoting system for the New Mexico Health Insurance Alliance. Insurance agents that are certified with the alliance can log into a password protected area, enter data about their proposed clients such as date of birth, county, and gender, and then get health insurance rates from five different carriers. Agents can also print rate sheets for each carrier and each county. Rate updates used to be done manually and take many weeks. Now updates are done automatically in a few hours.
