– from e-comms to complex bespoke applications
What is Web Development?
Web development basically includes anything that appears in a browser. This could be a simple brochure website, it could be a complex e-commerce website or it could be a bespoke application or even a dedicated app.
These days nearly all websites are powered by some sort of content management system or bespoke admin system (eg WordPress, Joomla, Magento, OpenCart, Sitecore, Umbraco etc).
At Datadial we work with WordPress, Umbraco, and Quill (our in-house open source CMS). Deciding which platform to choose depends on the website being developed. We do not prescribe just one solution and force you into it.
Beautifully designed websites are all very well but if they crash and burn when there are more than 100 visitors at the same time, your day will be full of frustration – and probably tears.
Many of our clients now run their entire business through their website including all offline orders so it is paramount that their websites are available 100% of the time and reliable.
As we host and manage all the websites that we develop we can ensure, not only the quality of the website but also the availability and robustness of it.
We’ve been building bespoke web applications and online software since 1998. (At some point we’ll let the techies out for some fresh air.) And because every step of the process is carried out in-house – we don’t outsource – we can develop your online application to do exactly what you want it to, no matter how complex.
