Blackpepper is a privately owned digital agency that's been steadily growing since 2001. We have offices in central Auckland and Tauranga and a team of 13 core staff.
We like to think of ourselves as 'online enablers' offering the best solutions, hosted on state-of-the-art hardware and developed by a team with an intimate knowledge of the internet and it's applications. Our specialist creatives and technicians handle all development and design in-house. They thrive on new challenges and love it when Blackpepper's solutions exceed our clients' expectations.
Our focus is working with customers to create simple, smart solutions that enable them and serve their specific needs. We find out what sort of online experience they're after, what results are important to them, how the solution should work and how they interact with their customers. We'll then create a look and feel - both the front and back-end - that's engaging and simple to use.
We work with our clients to create simple, smart solutions that optimise their business, help them increase sales and keep their customers coming back for more.
...and we'll create a website that not only looks and feels engaging, but, most importantly, is easy to use. We love clients who think outside the box, but we're unfailingly honest and if your ideas are completely crazy, we'll let you know and work out some appealing alternatives.
In 2006, Blackpepper began focusing on ecommerce and retail email marketing. It's now an important part of our work, and an area we spend a lot of time researching and developing. More than 180 companies are currently using our PepperSUITE CMS and ecommerce platform. Call us to find out more about this.
When it comes to technical development, we believe in making everything simple for the end user - a site should just work, full stop. The Blackpepper in-house development team handles all development and server management. This means we can choose the best tools to solve any problems, fast.
Our creative director Scott has been at Blackpepper forever. He's responsible for all the design work in our Showcase. Scott puts all his energy into online design and our technical team works hard to bring his visions to life.
Blackpepper runs a cloud hosting solution on a VMware vSphere platform. Because we own and manage all our hardware, our clients have just one number or email support line to get help with anything.
