Web development and CMS
Over the years, we’ve built an enormous range of CMS-based websites and bespoke web apps. Our preferred platform is ExpressionEngine, but we also work with PHP and .NET platforms like Joomla!, Drupal, Zend, Symfony, Umbraco, WordPress and Magento.
We’re as happy working with existing modules as we are building our own, so if you have a specific need, we can create something that fulfils it perfectly. Third-party integration is no problem, either – we’ve incorporated platforms including Facebook, Google Maps, Sage, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, SOAP, Twitter and more.
You’ll often see our devs at conferences and industry events, keeping up with the rapidly-changing development community. We like to keep our skills sharp.
With a range of over 1000 courses, Develop Training needed us to rebuild their site to integrate with their internal booking system. Since it used .NET, we recommended the Umbraco CMS, then added custom functionality to automatically update course details, dates, times and availability on the site in real time.
We built Cole Fabrics’ website using our own CMS, designing it to work closely with their existing staff and customer login systems. We also incorporated their social media feeds, and created a custom product module that lets clients browse and order samples from the entire range.
Dental Elite needed a site that would effectively advertise dental jobs and practices for sale. We built a CMS-based front end that linked to their internal recruitment system to automatically populate the site’s jobs board. We then developed a bespoke data feed for IDIBU to publish specified jobs to third-party websites. We also created a custom module for advertising dental practices, including sophisticated search parameters like postcode, practice type, size and price.
Independent Schools Inspectorate
The London-based Independent Schools Inspectorate needed a professional-looking yet complex website that could search over 1,200 schools by parameters like name, location, postcode, gender, and year. We built it using a CMS we created ourselves, allowing ISI to easily update every part of their site.
