Empower clients with technology to get work done and go home happy each and every day.
Founded in 2006, we design, build, maintain, and host: websites, web applications, and custom software. We operate nimbly as a boutique software development firm with significant expertise in design and usability. Along with supporting our clients and their businesses, we are entrepreneurs at heart and use our expertise to build our own products such as Agent SITE, RegWiz, and SecureMyWebsite.
Our form and function approach to websites is the reason we trademarked the phrase Beautiful Websites that Work! ®
From the beginning
Sharp Hue’s first startup product was BookAnt, a peer to peer textbook exchange for college students. While it gained traction in the first year at over 30 colleges, BookAnt ultimately failed after a decision to shift to the very infant Facebook Apps platform resulted in endless bugs for one person to handle.

Chile Pepper Partnership
Sharp Hue has worked with many non-profit organizations over the years and often times donating services to help these organizations succeed. Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival is one close to our heart and we are proud to support an organization that gives back all of its profits to our community.
First Full-Time Employee Hired

Sharp Hue Support
In August of 2015 we reorganized the company so that the role of client services was embedded within our systems and processes. We introduced Sharp Hue Team Support which allowed all team members to collaborate on questions, tasks, and issues from clients. Eventually we implemented Zendesk which does an amazing job of helping us manage a lot of clients with a small team.
Azure & WP Engine
After 10 years of being in business and still managing the same private hosting cloud from 2008, it became evident that technology was less expensive than when we started and that partnering with the best hosting companies to manage websites on their infrastructure would win us back time and give us new ways to grow.
Tech Partner Program Launched
The culmination of working relationships with clients, a decade of expertise, streamlined technology, and a desire to offer more support for our clients resulted in the creation of the Technology Partner Program. This retainer-like program offers discounted rates and priority access in the queue for clients who have monthly ongoing needs.
Secure My Website Launched
By now, it’s not unusual at all for Sharp Hue to create a product based on patterned demand seen across our clients. The latest product focuses on helping our clients secure their website to help their customers feel safe and also to stay up with changes in search engine ranking factors such as HTTPS.
3000 Projects Completed
The future and our ability to handle more projects and grow alongside clients is exciting and a big factor of why our team loves this work. One way we will grow our projects and interactions with clients is by proactively communicating and educating our clients on ways they can improve and win back more time with technology.
Sharp Hue V6
Our 6th website is a testament to the new processes and technologies we implemented in the previous two years since opening the Atlanta office. The homepage speaks our company vision of helping clients get work done and go home happy. The website now reflects more accurately our capabilities and products.
Atlanta Office Returns to the City
In June, the Sharp Hue Atlanta office moved downtown to the Peachtree Center. The new office enables us to grow our team, especially internships, by locating in downtown near Georgia State University and Georgia Tech.
