Over the past few years, sales of smartphones have exploded. Everywhere I look, I see people glued to the screen of their iPhone, Galaxy, or Nexus device.

The mobile era is here and everyone is happy. Well, almost everyone. For those of us who earn a living from our websites, things have been a little more challenging lately.

ICND to Redesign Mount Pleasant Sewer and Waterworks Website


InterCoastal Net Designs (ICND) has been partnering with Mount Pleasant Sewer and Waterworks for their website development and hosting needs for many years. We first began working with them in late 2008 and have a great partnership with them to this day. We are excited to announce that we will be working on redesigning a website for them this fall. The new website will be responsive, clean, and easy to navigate. Some of the features of the new website will include;

  • Online employment panel where job openings will be listed and applicants can apply via the website, as well as receive updates on the status of the opening.
  • Integration with their internal system which will show current projects information and status.

ICND headquarters is currently located about 2.5 hours north of Charleston, but our roots are in Charleston. Company president Brandon Sauls first opened doors in 1999 while living in Mount Pleasant. Company headquarters was moved to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina in the early 2000’s, but we still have a local Charleston rep and are active members of the Chamber of Commerce. ICND has clients all across the nation, but a large percentage of them are right in the Charleston area. We are excited to continue to grow our portfolio with great clients like Mount Pleasant Sewer and Waterworks. Stay tuned for the completed project!
