Web Application and Web Development

Developing powerful web applications and websites that meet defined business needs are our speciality

Web Application and Web Development

The way we work has changed. Nine-to-five is a paradigm fewer people now live by, as the business day gets longer, and people take work home with them. Serving that shift in working practices calls for online software and support to be available for mobile and home users. We’re well placed to meet that need, with considerable expertise as a web development company in bespoke web applications and websites.

Businesses today now have a requirement for home or mobile versions of the software they use at work, so that team members can continue to work on projects at home and on the move. The closer those systems are to what the team members are used to, the less new learning or training is required. Customers find applications allowing them to continue projects outside normal working hours of value, and that’s just one example of the kind of business advantage you can leverage with customer-focused web applications or websites.

What is a Web Application?

Where some applications are designed for mobile usage, web applications (or web apps) are designed to operate within an internet web-browser which means they’re not restricted to certain devices. They’re accessible by anyone who can access the internet, whether that is on a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone, which helps explain their growing popularity.

Web applications can be discovered using a search engine – it’s a lot tougher to find mobile apps at an app store. Their web-style ‘look-and-feel’ is a lot easier to work with than mobile apps, and because they’re not downloaded they don’t take up any space on your device. Mobile apps do offer some advantages; they’re faster to load and can utilise information such as your present location in interesting ways. We’ll be very happy to weigh up the best way forward with you – what matters is finding the best solution for your business needs.

How we work with you

A web application and web development company like ours has expertise in many types of web applications in many different industries, giving us wider and deeper insights into the field. We’ve taken our own web applications to market too, so our experience isn’t just as software developers.

That broad expertise allows us to be of value across the board. We’ll start off by discussing your business wants and needs, and come up with some plausible directions to explore for business solutions. Our goal is always to develop software that addresses a genuine business need and works in an intuitive fashion. Years of experience of web application development gives us deep technical insight, rigorous programming savvy, and keen commercial focus.

Endless possibilities

We have solved a wide range of business problems, and in solving many problems some approaches come up time after time. Our expertise includes:

  • A web app to complement your website.
  • A web app with an integrated CRM back-end.
  • A web app with a back-end payment processing system.
  • A web app that’s hosted and offers local, remote, synchronised, or multi-tenanted database back-end.
  • A custom mix of hosted front-end, back-end, and client/supplier portal systems.

The range of choices addressed by a bespoke web-based application includes:

  • Automating routine administration tasks such as billing and data processing.
  • Presenting the user with up to date information from multiple sources.
  • Use of visual and audio cues to support progress tracking.
  • Allow the user to record meeting reports and other data with ease.
  • Key in to relevant data according to user’s permissions.

Early on in development, we’ll create a visual model that we’ll work towards so you have a sense of your web application’s ‘look-and-feel’. If that doesn’t seem right to you, then we’ve got time to create something more suitable during the development process. For the front-end, our inclination is to use standard internet technologies such as HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery together with ASP.NET MVC and C# programming. Backend databases are usually created with Microsoft SQL Server and Web Services, although we can also use other databases like Oracle or MySQL if that’s better for you.

Naturally, the intellectual property (IP) of the web application belongs to you, and those rights will be transferred promptly. We’ll provide full training and a tailored support package including help desk access to our software developers. Where relevant we’ll offer to host your web app too – it can save you from what can be quite a technically-involved decision.
