This will ensure that your site is up to date and compliant with new rules.

Static Web pages always look the same and the content rarely changes. To make a change, you must create the page yourself or request a Web designer to do it for you. The newly created page and any images must then be uploaded to the Web servers. Dynamic pages are the opposite. They can change every time they are loaded (without anyone having to make those changes), and they can even change their content based on what your website visitors do.
The dynamic page can be created to respond to information entered by your site’s visitor. They usually store and pull information from an underlying database. Dynamic sites can reduce ongoing maintenance costs if you don’t want to change things yourself with a Web page editor. They usually cost more to develop, as they require more complex coding. A content management utility also needs to be developed to help you manage your site. Many clients have a combination of dynamic and static elements in their sites. For instance, they might use dynamic pages for a product catalog where they have to change information or pictures regularly. The “Contact” and “About Us” pages are often left as static pages.

Yes. We have secure servers (SSL) that use the latest encryption methods to ensure that your customers can buy from you website knowing that the information they enter is secure and safe.

Yes. We always design websites to be search-engine friendly.

Yes, most of the apps we make support both iOS and Android mobile platforms. It’s common for people to want their applications to work across web and mobile devices, so we use development frameworks such as React and React native that enable us to quickly support both platforms.

Yes, in fact nearly every mobile app that we build also needs a web based application behind the scenes to drive it. Ever logged into an app? There is a web server in the background, serving the app with data that is checking whether you have permission to log in, or not. 

Yes, you will be assigned appropriate copyright or license rights for the bespoke code that we write for your project. We are transparent with intellectual property rights, and you will have the opportunity to review our code ownership terms before the project begins.

Many factors contribute to launching a successful project, and some requirements may result in the project taking longer to develop than others. However, for estimation, a good guide is that a project will typically take according to the complexity of the app.

Yes, in fact, we highly recommend that you begin by launching the simplest possible version of your vision first and continue to adapt it over time. We have some options around making future changes to your app or website.

We like to use open source languages wherever possible with HTML, CSS and JavaScript on the front end, and JavaScript or PHP on the back end. We use React Native for most mobile app projects, but will sometimes use Cordova or Phone Gap should we be working within tight budgets or need to support web, Android and iOS quickly.

For web apps, we use frontend layout frameworks such as bootstrap, foundation, material and SemanticUI in combination with front-end code frameworks such as React or Angular. On the back-end, we usually use a PHP framework such as Laravel or Yii2.

We start by creating a central database that will hold all your data; we then put in place an interface (an API) to allow the web and mobile apps to send and receive this data. Think of an API as a digital version of a drive-through burger restaurant. If you ask the teller for a burger, then you’ll get given one from the kitchen. Ask them for a trampoline and tell you that they don’t sell that product. When we build a connection between your web app and your mobile app, we will configure these rules but based on the functionality of your system.

Yes. If you have a site or app with small or medium resource requirements, then we can host your project on our managed servers. If you have specific hosting requirements, intensive resource demands, or require something more specialist, then we can set you up with your own dedicated, cloud, or load balanced hosting environment. For example, if you need to handle high volumes of processing and traffic globally then we may opt for a bespoke multi-server hosting setup using Amazon’s EC2, Cloud Front, Elastic Load Balancer and S3 storage facilities. Should you be unsure of what you require, one option is to start with a simple hosting package first, and then move to a more advanced configuration if your needs grow.

Our standard servers are backed up every day, both on site via bare-metal backups in the event of a complete server failure, as well as in a secure redundant off-site location within the UK. This provides multiple layers of backup redundancy, allowing data to be recovered quickly and completely.

Yes, we will need your support with testing the project, please. We have processes for testing and quality assurance, but the way that we think and use your app, is different to how you will. You defined the project, and you know what you want better than anyone, so you’ll probably use and interact with what we’ve built in ways that we couldn’t have predicted. Even if everything works 100% perfectly when we hand it over to you, you will need to check that everything works as expected to sign-off on the work with confidence that we’ve delivered the project to meet your specification.

We work in a short iteration mode and regularly test the work results, taking into account all client preferences and the target audience reaction. This approach allows us to provide our customers with high-quality products, observing the specified deadlines. Quality is our top priority.

Yes, we do a huge amount of software testing: QA, system testing, functionality & feature testing, integration testing, regression testing, web software testing, compatibility testing on various platforms, load and performance testing, test case preparations, execution of test cases, reporting, etc.

Yes, we do support all software we design on the basis of a product license. This generally includes bug-tracking and fixing. Feature enhancements and developments are handled.
