How we work: our formula for a successful website

Every project is different, but over the years we've developed a set of best practices to ensure you end up with a great site.

Here's our secret now not-so-secret formula:

  • We'll agree a project budget in advance, and we'll stick to it.
  • We'll agree a set of timescales, and we'll meet deadlines.
  • We'll get to know your business, and work with you to come up with a specification for the website you need.
  • We'll voice any issues or concerns and help you make informed decisions about the best choices for your project.
  • Using open source technologies like Java and Ruby on Rails, we'll develop a great-looking, cost-effective website.
  • Our test-driven approach to web development ensures your web application works reliably.
  • We'll provide suitable hosting for your new web application, and we'll take care of deploying it and making sure everything is correctly configured.
  • We'll 'bed in' the new website until any wrinkles are ironed out and you're completely satisfied.
  • Your finished site will be accessible to users who rely on assistive technologies, and it'll be easy to find on the web - we provide integrated SEO services for many of our clients.
  • We'll provide long-term continuity and we'll be available to maintain and update your site as the future demands.

Our philosophy

  • We bring a unique blend of common sense, tried and tested software development techniques and up to date expertise.
  • We're not afraid to ask stupid-sounding questions - avoiding misunderstandings and wrong assumptions, and so avoiding horrible mess (that's a technical term) further down the line.
  • We're not afraid to ask a few difficult complicated questions either, and we pride ourselves on spotting hazards and pitfalls that other developers have missed. We'll come up with elegant, cost-effective solutions to any challenges that arise.
  • We'll get to know your business and ensure that we deliver a website or web application that does what you really need. We'll make sure you aren't missing any tricks.
  • We're committed to ongoing learning and improvement. Nobody can afford to be complacent in the fast-moving digital age.
  • We have an outstanding reputation for honesty and integrity, backed by an ethical statement that's been in place since the business was started.
