Whether you’re looking to build a new application from scratch or improve an existing one, we can help you create the perfect solution that will drive your business forward.
It’s common for clients to request a website build without realising that they’re actually in need of a web application. The main difference between the two is their functionalities.
A website, such as an eCommerce store or news website, typically serves as a platform to display content for visitors to view. Whereas, a web application, such as Google Analytics or a project management tool, allows users to interact with the content and perform specific tasks.
For example, an e-commerce website allows visitors to browse products, add to cart, and make purchases. A web application, in contrast, could be a custom inventory management system for the e-commerce site, allowing the business to track stock levels and make updates to the product catalogue.
The key point here is that a web application is a tool that has specific functionalities which are focused on a task while a website serves to display content, both are important and are used in different ways.
Web applications can easily be scaled up or down to meet the changing needs of a business, without the need for significant investment in new hardware or software.
We employ multiple technologies and encryption methods, such as SSL and TLS, to ensure the security of user data both during transmission and while stored. By encrypting data both in transit and at rest, we guarantee the safety and confidentiality of your information, giving you complete peace of mind.
Web applications can automate repetitive tasks, reducing the need for manual labour and increasing productivity.
Web applications allow businesses to tailor the user experience to the individual needs of each customer, improving engagement and customer satisfaction.
Building your own web application can be cost-effective as it allows for customisation to your specific business needs, scalability, lower maintenance costs and leveraging the expertise of your own in-house development team, without having to pay for expensive software licenses or consulting services. Additionally, you can add new features or functionalities as your business grows, without incurring additional costs.
Web applications can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection, making it easier for employees, customers, and partners to access the tools and information they need to be successful.
We use the following steps as a guide for building great website applications. These steps are not always linear and may overlap or need to be repeated multiple times throughout the web app development process. We have extensive experience in programming languages and use them to develop bespoke web applications. Depending on the complexity of the web application, it may be necessary to involve additional steps such as security testing, optimisation, and user testing.
Define what specific problem/opportunity the web application will solve for the end user.
We will conduct research into the market, user needs and your competition. This enables us to create user personas and a user flow.
Create wireframes and mockups of the web application’s user interface.
This step involves the actual build of the web application – developing a web application is like baking a cake, but instead of sugar and flour, we use lines of code and lots of coffee.
We will then test the web application to ensure it functions as intended and fix any bugs. In addition during our User Acceptance Testing, we verify the product to market fit.
Deploying the web application live – this will make it public.
Monitor the web application’s performance and usage statistics. Use the data to identify areas for improvement.
