Web Application Development
Web applications are software programs, connected to a database, that run from the Internet in a web browser. We have specialised in building PHP/MySQL web applications for more than ten years and have proudly helped our clients reach a new level of efficiency and productivity in their business.
Several of the main advantages of a web application over traditional software programs are that they can be run on any device from anywhere with an Internet connection, they are highly flexible and can be updated remotely without the need to re-install the program, data back-ups are performed automatically, and connecting to other online services becomes much easier.
Common components of our web applications include the management of customers, orders, invoices, statements, stock and staff. Utilising email, SMS (text message) and other communication methods simplifies many outgoing and incoming communication requirements. Our custom-built web applications are most suited to medium-sized businesses where an existing software solution is not available. Since our systems are fully custom-built for each client's requirements, they are generally much simpler and easier to use than comptetitive products that try to be 'all things to all people'.
We build web sites to any level. If you want a basic brochure site or a full e-commerce system with online purchasing and inventory control, we can accommodate your needs. The visual design of the site can either be provided by you, based on your existing branding, our original design, or we can sit down and create your style together. To manage your site content, we can provide our easy-to-use Content Management Systems (CMS). We are also more than happy to assess, modify or rebuild your existing website. Price is determined by your requirements and you will only pay for what you need, unlike many website 'packages' that are on offer.
All web sites need to be hosted on the Internet so that they can be viewed on demand by web users. This can be done on any computer connected to the Internet, but for a serious hosting solution that is fast, secure and always available, you can't afford to be without professionally managed web hosting. We provide superior, managed web hosting including a full backup service (both on-site and off-site). High availability of your web site is assured from our New Zealand based web servers.
We provide report writing services for IT-related projects. If you need a project proposal in order to further the potential of your idea, or a complete set of software analysis and design documentation, we can provide this for you. Documents that we find most popular are Project Briefs, Project Proposals and full System Analysis and Design documentation. Our documents are written to the highest standard and we can present complex ideas in a clear and concise manner. We have found that detailing and documenting the scope of a new idea as a potential IT project adds tremendous value to that idea, particularly when seeking venture capital.
Database Design and Development
We can provide you with a high-quality database management system to suit your requirements. The chore of maintaining customer, job or product lists can be made easy with the development of a well designed and implemented database system. So if you need a small database to manage your customer/client base, or you are looking for a complete integrated database system to manage your entire business,please get in touch with us. While our preferred database platform is MySQL, we also provide support and development for Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Access.
We can provide software solutions to fit any requirement or problem. We utilise prototyping and Rapid Application Development (RAD) to develop solutions that are easy to use, high-powered and efficient. We also specialise in facilitating data conversions, which are normally performed in order to extract data from a legacy system and convert it to a format suitable for upgraded or changed software. These processes are normally unique and require that a custom conversion program be written. If you have a unique IT problem that needs solving, try us!
