We use a variety of products to build bespoke solutions for our clients. Typically with WordPress or Laravel at the core of our solutions.
WordPress powers 43% of the entire web – its popularity means it is actively developed, secured and maintained through a unique community of worldwide developers – which we also actively contribute to. We choose WordPress because of its low cost of entry for you, and its ease of use. Using APIs and open source tools we take WordPress from its starting point as a content management system to a bespoke platform for you and your project.
Laravel is a software development framework that we use to build bespoke digital products – we choose Laravel when the project is driven by functional or complex requirements. Laravel uses the same underlying programming language as WordPress, but it’s a blank page comparatively. It gives us more freedom and flexibility than WordPress so we tend to recommend this solution when we meet the ceiling of what we think WordPress can achieve for you.
Our sweet spot is a hybrid of the two, giving you the editorial control and front end management you expect from your CMS harnessing the power of WordPress, combined with bespoke app functionality built in Laravel – giving you a custom product that functions the way you need while being easy to maintain.
Our project process
We operate a sprint-based project management process for most of our bespoke web development. You will be assigned a project manager for your project, who will ensure that internal deadlines are being met and will be your main point of contact throughout the project.
A sprint is a phase of work, with clearly identifiable deliveries at the end. Our sprint sign-off process acts as a stage gate to ensure effective project controls. All projects start with an essential discovery sprint.
