Software Development

 

We specialise in the development of web-based business solutions. We begin by collecting detailed system requirements from you, which we use to create technical and functional specifications which illustrate the flow of logic and processes in the application.

Web Design

 

A great website can transform your business. We create custom designed, responsive, scalable, web applications which are deployed to a cloud based hosting platform. Responsive websites are now favoured in Google's search results above traditional websites.

Mobile Apps

 

The mobile devices market is so large that Google now gives priority to mobile freindly websites in it's search results. Mobile devices are no longer the future - they're now the largest, and the fastest growing, consumers of data. We will create your application for both the iOS and Android app stores, making your ideas available to 95% of the worlds mobile devices.

Software as a Service

 

SaaS projects are all over the internet, and have penetrated practically every industry. They represent a new age of businesses as they are often cutting edge, unconventional and personal. For many SaaS projects, revenue is based on recurring monthly revenue. This means they collect monthly subscriptions for an on-going service or use of the product. In the long run, they have a steady cash flow from subscriptions.

01 Requirements

 

The planning phase is the most essential part of any software project. Over the course of a number of meetings, we will thoroughly document your business, user, and system requirements in a way which clarifies the system, puts these details in writing, and also expedites the development process itself.

 

02 Documentation

 

We use the detailed information we have have collected as system requirements to create technical and functional specifications. These documents illustrate the flow of logic in the application and are a reference for both ourselves and our client. System documentation also includes a schedule of delivery and sign off points.

 

03 Coding

 

Finally we begin coding the application. At this point we also create databases, email accounts, SSL certificates, hosting accounts, and database administration access as required. During this phase we iterate over business requirement revisions to incorporate new ideas and changing requirements, and update documentation accordingly.

 

 

We perform all aspects of software development including Business Requirements, Functional Specification, Technical Specification, Development, Database Administration, independent Quality Assurance, User Acceptance Testing, Implementation, Training and User Support.

The planning phase is the most essential part of any software project. Through the course of a number of meetings, we will thoroughly document your solution’s requirements in a way that both puts them in writing, and expedites the development process itself. Additionally, we include mock screens in our documentation so that you can be confident in how the final product will look before we start to develop any code. Documentation really is the key to a good customer-developer relationship, and we believe that complete transparency is the only way to delivery an exceptional product.

/ Web Design

A properly designed and constructed website can literally transform your business. We produce professionally designed websites which are extremely easy to manage.

We have a solid foundation of experience in designing websites for all kinds of UK based businesses. We will make sure your newly designed website is focused on generating and maintaining customers for your business. In simple terms your website needs to be visible and appealing, while providing the information that encourages the user to make contact so you can convert that visit into a sale. It is crucial to consider this from the beginning, which is why we work to create a flow of control which will ensure users navigate through your pages and find what they are looking for.

/ Mobile Applications

No shortcuts. We engineer only native code. We tap into APIs, share data across multiple platforms, and engage users as only a mobile experience can. We are a mobile-first development company. Everything we do starts from the perspectiv of mobile users. Nothing says mobile more than the app market, and a successful app can secure the future of your project.

/ Software as a Service (SaaS)

SaaS (Software as a Service) is a description given to a software application which the consumer has access to via the internet. Saas users may pay a monthly fee to access a Cloud based application, rather than installing any softwares, facilitates secure user-access management, and ensures the end user is always using the latest version.

SaaS projects are all over the internet, and have penetrated practically every industry. They represent a new age of businesses as they are often cutting edge, unconventional and personal. For many SaaS projects, revenue is based on recurring monthly revenue. This means they collect monthly subscriptions for an on-going service or use of the product. In the long run, they have a steady cash flow from subscriptions. We build and maintain our own SaaS projects.

/ Technologies

In the software development industry we are fortunate that the choice of technologies is wide ranging and improving at an exponential rate. We currently favour the following stack of technologies.

 

Haskell 01

Haskell is an advanced purely-functional programming language. It's an open-source product of more than twenty years of cutting-edge research.

02 MongoDB

MongoDB is an open-source storage solution. It is the leading NoSQL document database. Compose provide our production ready cloud hosting.

Heroku 03

Heroku is a hosting platform for scalable, cloud based applications. Their service allows us to spend more of our time developing your code.

04 github

Git is a free and open source distributed version control system. We use private github code repositories to manage and backup all our applications.

Amazon Web Services 05

Amazon Web Services offers a broad set of global compute, storage, database, analytics, application, and deployment services that help organizations move faster, lower IT costs, and scale applications

06 Bootstrap

Bootstrap is a sleek, intuitive, and powerful mobile first front-end framework for faster and easier web development.

 

iOS + Swift 07

We can develop your application with the iOS SDK and a wealth of technical resources in the iOS Dev Center, before testing and debug your code on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch to finalise your applications. Finally we distribute your app on the App Store and reach millions of iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch users. We have been using the wealth of tools available in the iOS Dev Centre since 2008.

08 Android

The Android platform is larger, and is also growing faster than iOS. It could be said that any successful apps today will require some level of marketing, and a less crowded market may provide an edge in this department. Android applications require a different perspective in development terms, due to the lack of a validation process by Google. This tends to shorten the time required to launch an app compared to it's iOS cousin

/ Case Study

Irish Arts Foundation

The brief was to create a responsive, multifunctional website for a Leeds based charity with a large community. One of the core objectives of the website is to increse exposure of events and projects, and to increase the potential audience.

The Irish Arts Foundation mission statement is "To raise the profile of the music and arts of Ireland throughout Britain and to celebrate the many contributions that Irish people have made to life in this country".

We worked closely with Chris and Des to design a clean, modern website which showcases the ongoing events and projects managed by the foundation.

We utilised Twitters Bootstrap framework to create a responsive site, and added Amazons web services CDN package to maintain separation between the view and model.

All text, images, news items, projects, links, team members, events, users, and slideshow items, are managed via the secure content management system.

Home Page

We worked closely with Chris and Des to design a clean minimalist website which focuses on accessibility while showcasing the ongoing events and projects managed by the foundation.

The homepage contains prominent links to all social media networks, a slideshow which keeps users up to date with current events and projects, the foundations mission statement, and several news items of current interest to their users.

Selected images fade in once above the fold, making them an instant a focal. It is also important to some funders that their involvement with the foundation is displayed on the homepge.

Project Page

The foundation needs to promote its projects and also allow funders to see that the money they contribute is allowing the foundation to maintain focus.

The project pages contain public information regarding each of the foundations projects, together with details of how users can become involved and find more information.

Contact Page

The profile of music and arts is raised by engaging with new audience members. Social media and email are therefore paramount to the foundation.

This page appeals to users to give feedback on events, projects, and the website. It contains an interactive map and a validated contact form. All pages contain a prominent mailing-list form in the footer.

Content Management System

This clients Content management System contains 10 different sections, with a total of 23 pages. Sections includes users, mail list, text, news, projects, links, team, events, and funders.

New users can gain access to the system by creating their own encrypted account from the login page, which is then granted full access by an existing user. All user logins are logged for future reference.

Each section of the public website which is managed by the CMS can contain multiple variations on an object. The ability to add, edit, and delete items in each section is imperative, as fresh content is required to keep this, very active, site vibrant.
