About Us

Tortus Technologies was founded as a website design and development company in 1996. We continue to serve the growing companies of Western Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New England and beyond.

After the "dot com" boom, we changed our focus. Now, we look at your business model first. Then we apply a custom solution. This may mean we redesign your website, create an email marketing campaign, develop an e-commerce system, or start from scratch. Whatever works for you.

We don't just build websites. We build businesses.

What Makes Us Unique

Business Continuity: Since 1996 Tortus has been a firm, not a network of outsourced designers, IT people and programmers. Tortus has a U.S. based team of full-time W-2 professionals that are available to you throughout the web design, integration and software development process and beyond. This ensures that your website and business will continue to operate smoothly, regardless of turnover.

Scope of Services: Tortus is a one-stop Internet, web, and business solutions provider. We collaboratively create business solutions- we can implement and manage as much as you decide. This includes business planning, ecommerce, email campaigns, marketing programs, web development, secure hosting, IT, outsourcing and much more.

Results: We realize that our only measurement tools are business results: increasing your revenues or decreasing your expenses. We have a team of experienced professionals focused on completing each project on time and to your satisfaction.

Experience: Our staff understands business. We ask the questions that our clients may not know to ask. We deliver true and real "value added" not only to the project, but also to your entire enterprise. We pride ourselves on helping your organization grow and succeed - at whatever speed you set.

Accountability: The buck stops here. We take responsibility for your complete satisfaction. Whether it be your first website, hosting, a consulting project, or design & programming. We are committed to your organization's success.

Service: We respond with ideas which add value to your organization. The Tortus difference is our staff. They are trained to provide timely, accurate, and professional answers to your questions.

Contact Tortus today, and we'll start developing your solution.

Our Mission Statement:

Tortus helps growing organizations by creating web-based solutions while combining traditional best practices with leading edge technology.

We believe that business should be fun and profitable… not always in that order!


This is just a handful of folks who help us get things done. We have years of business and web development experience and we strive to offer you timely, cost-effective service.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. That's why we're here.
