Website Development

Web development is more than just creating beautiful and vibrant Content Management Systems (CMS). Our web application development expertise takes responsibility for a number of 'behind the scenes' tasks such as integrating existing systems, creating a customised CMS, web application development, CRM’s, intranets and security, to name a few. We are extremely experienced at website development and focus on creating industry leading projects and bring ideas to life!

Understanding your individual requirements is the first step to creating an effective web development project. We understand that no two projects are the same, so by analysing your requirements and understanding the benefits to your business, we can work with you to define clear goals and structure your development plan accordingly.

A poorly coded website can frustrate users, drive traffic from your website and prevent search engines from crawling it properly. Your company website should be quick and responsive across all digital mediums, delight users and boost rankings in search engines.

What’s more, continuous improvement is critical to user engagement and the ongoing success of your website. Measuring results using analytics allows you to make informed decisions about the effectiveness not only of your custom web design but your complete digital strategy.

If you need something above and beyond a standard business website we have the experience to craft a custom solution tailored to your business. Whether you are looking to have a membership site with profile matching, a directory website with advanced search filtering or perhaps you require automated recurring invoicing - we can develop a custom solution ideally crafted and bespoke built for your business. You will never see your website theme used, or sold by us on any other domain.

Our expert developers use a proven methodology to devise the solutions that simplifies your business processes to increasing productivity, putting you in complete control.

Quick FAQ's

Almost everywhere you look someone is talking about or calling themselves either a web designer or web developer. But what does it all really mean?

A web designer uses graphics and graphic design software (think Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign) to create a look for the web. This design is then married with coding to bring it to life online. The designer may not always be the person writing the code and in some cases can work independently of the team who will take a website design live.

While aspects of a developer’s job may resemble that of a designer, it can be quite different as well. A web developer builds the backbone of websites, typically from the ground up, and knows languages specific to the web. HTML, Javascript, JQuery and CSS are among the tools in their kit. Developers, historically, don’t focus on making something look visually appealing but create websites with clean code and that are technically sound. The designer will then marry the development code into the website design.

So, what does this mean when looking at purchasing web design or web development? In a nutshell, if you're just wanting a new website that's being built from scratch then web design is for you. If however you're looking to integrate something, create app's and require lots of personalised scripts or require an eCommerce or CMS based website then you'll be looking at website development.

There are basically two main types of website - static and dynamic. A static site is one that is usually written in plain HTML and what is in the code of the page is what is displayed to the user.

A dynamic site is one that is written using a server-side scripting language such as PHP, ASP, JSP, or Coldfusion. In such a site the content is called in by the scripting language from other files or from a database depending on actions taken by the user.

This ability to connect to a database means that you can also create a content management system - an interface which allows the client to input and manage data via a web-based series of administration pages.

Responsive Web Design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user's behaviour and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation.

The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts (we use Bootstrap), images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website automatically switches to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities.

In other words, the website will have the technology to automatically respond to the user's preferences. This eliminates the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget on the market.

One Page Brochure Web Design
Brochure websites are a standard request made by small businesses / sole traders that have a limited budget and who rarely make changes to their website content (a static website). A brochure website usually consists of a single page and allows you to showcase your service easily without much ongoing maintenance required (hence the word static comes into play); think of it as having a long shelf-life so to speak. There is only one page meaning the links at the top menu will usually link to sections within the brochure (one-page) homepage.

Multi Page Web Design
Multi Page websites are usually requested by medium to large businesses or those who require an eCommerce element such as an online shop. A multi page website can be either staic or dynamic with a built in Content Management System allowing you full control over the content should you need to make frequent changes. It will consist of multiple pages such as a homepage, about us page, contact page and others as required. You will find there is a menu at the top which links to other pages within your website.

eCommerce Web Design
More and more organisations are investigating the possibility of putting their product offering on-line, enabling customers to buy whenever and wherever they wish. A Content Management System (CMS) can be an ideal fully database-driven eCommerce engine which makes shopping on-line a pleasurable experience for the customer, whilst keeping the retailer in control by having full rights to add menu's, product categories, products and much more.

Content Management Web Design
The basic roles of a CMS include a content creator, reviewer and a publisher. This user security level enables the editor and reviewer to manage content via a web browser with the content stored in a database. In it’s simplest form, the CMS (using a browser) will allow a content creator to use an editor to create and edit content with an authorised user to approve the content to be published in a live environment. All of this interaction is controlled through security, workflow and audit trails and all of this is stored and tracked in a database.
