Web software development

If you want your website to be more than an 'online brochure', then you need to go further with software and database app development.

We've got over 10 years experience of building web applications (even more that working on multi-user database applications).  

For the technically-minded, our specialty is the LAMP web app stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) primarily because of its stability, free licensing, and the worldwide community of experise available. 


The combination of web design and app development can increase the the value of your web site many times over by saving you time and efficiency costs or making you money with improved customer facilities and service.

Here are a few ways software development can help you:

  • Keeping your site up to date - Everyone (including search engines) likes sites where the information is regularly updated. Maybe a special offer, a staff promotion or an important win - tell everyone. We can build you a software application, where you can immediately update important parts of your site, large or small.
  • Database integration - perhaps you have a large amount of business information that you want your visitors to be able to view e.g. a property database or vehicles for sale. We can build you an application that will allow you to update your database at any time and at the same time, your visitors can search the database and see the information on the web site.
  • Business workflow and customer - just for the internal use of your company. It controls the passage of a customer order or request through the company processes. Your client can track its status and you can always trace exactly where the order is and who has responsibility. Include an automatic escalation process.
  • Better customer service - Ensure that every customer request from your site is dealt with promptly and immediately assigned to a member of staff. A message is sent back to the customer automatically giving personal contact details of the assigned sales person.

These are just a few examples of what can be done with web software development, but there are virtually no limits - whatever you want to do, we can probably do it.
