Content Management Systems (CMS)

The heart of any Digital Business is its Content Management System that style and presents your content and assets to users while allow your staff to update and iterate features into a well organised operators console.

Online Applications and Extensions

Based on the nature of your Business there maybe specialised and modular applications that you need to service the demand without using manual processes. We have hundreds of extensions to our Web CMS available including eCommerce, Payments, Bookings, Listings, Appointments, Advertising, Events, Search and Social.

Identity and Access Management (IDAM)

If you are expecting to offer online users access to your data then their is a need to secure it and only allow access if the user is Authenticated and Authorised to create, read, update and delete it. We work with a range of Single Sign On and Authentication Hubs and can apply them to your software through configuration.

API and Microservices (Integration)

Once the user or system has Authenticated and possesses a Token then it is time to retrieve the data from an API and present it back in a timely fashion. This system to system communication requires a highly level of Cyber Security to thwart robotic attacks and ensure all consuming applications only get what they are entitled to.

Responsive Design (PC, Mac, Android, iOS)

All our websites and online applications deliver responsive experiences on Mobile Devices which mitigates the risk of not having a dedicated cross platform Mobile App - We can even 'wrap' the Website as a Mobile App and load it into the Apple Store and Google Play with very little technical modification. Responsive by nature, Responsive by design
