Custom Web Applications
Automate a business process or turn your creative ideas into a reality with some custom development.
An off-the-shelf content management system or e-commerce platform can often be adapted and customised to fit the needs of your project, however there are many occasions where it makes good business sense to develop something tailored to your exact requirements.
Common bespoke development projects might include:
- Taking an existing process (a complicated multi-step form for example) and creating an online version
- Building a web friendly front end with access control to an operational database
- Developing a website that has a unique function or purpose
- Going outwith the capabilities of a standard e-commerce package, for example selling a single highly configurable product
- Helping different systems talk to each other or move data around
We have the capability to develop a website or web based application in any way, shape or form you require.
A bespoke web development project will produce an end product that is:
- Developed to your exact requirements (we can help you define those too)
- Tailored to your users / customers needs rather than being constrained by existing functionality
- Fits best within your existing business processes and the way you want to work
- Can be built upon over time or developed gradually with a phased approach
- Provides a solid and robust platform for growth and as a result the website should have a longer lifespan
- Easier to use and easier to manage and update
For most of our custom development work we use CakePHP, an open source rapid development framework which provides an extensible architecture for developing, maintaining, and deploying applications.
Using a framework means:
- We can build things faster
- We can build things consistently better
- Our projects are developed to a common standard and adhere to industry best practice
