Website Builder with a Passion for Excellence
What is ONDABOX?
At ONDABOX, we build websites that do more. As a premier web design and development company, we are dedicated to creating incredible online experiences that exceed our clients' expectations. Our groundbreaking content management system, Site Manager, allows us to craft websites that are limited only by your imagination. Our team of talented designers and developers is able to complete most projects faster and more cost-efficiently than our competitors, and our network of partners enables us to take on projects of any scale.
ONDABOX began as Hartley Parker d'Signs, in 1993, by Jahmal Hartley and Ricardo Parker, two college juniors attending The City College of the City University of New York. Jahmal, ONDABOX Chief of Design and Development, is an experienced designer and software engineer from the Bronx. Ricardo Parker, an accomplished graphic designer, is also from the Bronx. Kathleen Springer, ONDABOX President, joined the duo in 1995, helping to stabilize the company financially. Together they laid the foundation for the passion the company has today.
Before being renamed as ONDABOX, in 2004, the company enjoyed many years of success in commercial design and printing. After moving our headquarters to Colorado, we shifted our focus from printing services to online website development. We also expanded our client base to include businesses from coast to coast.
Over the two decades, we have focused our passion on being a premier web design and development company. Since 2001, our development team has been focused on expanding our current development platform the Site Manager. Which currently outperforms all other development platforms including majors like Drupal, Joomla, Squarespace, or WordPress.
“We realized back in the mid-nineties when we were building websites how nice it would be if these static web pages could actually do something. So, we decided we would develop a solution ... and now Site Manager is one of the most sophisticated platforms on the market today.”

Site Manager CMS
Originally Site Manager was called Art Manager and was developed for artists who wanted to customize their online portfolio website themselves. It was 2001, and at that time this feature was considered ground-breaking.
In 2005, we added an ecommerce component called Store Manager. Later we also created the Event Manager, Audio and Video Galleries, Blog/Forum Manager, Subscription Manager, and others.
In 2010, we rewrote the entire code base for Site Manager. In this industry a rewrite with a product only a few years old is very uncommon, but we felt that, at the current pace that new internet technology was being developed, we would soon be out paced by the new competitors entering the market. We needed a platform that was more flexible and easier to expand. With our new code base, we deployed dozens of new features almost at will.
At ONDABOX, our driving force is our passion for excellence. This has kept us pushing the company forward for over 20 years. We go the extra mile for our clients because we are so passionate about what we do and take great pride in our client's work.
