A custom built web application can save your business both time and money. Every business does things slightly differently, and so their software needs are different too. Often trying to use standard off-the-shelf tools to support your business process can lead to inefficiency and errors. Many business processes can benefit greatly from a simple and well designed piece of bespoke software that does exactly what your business needs, no more, no less.
Webfuel have experience in developing a wide range of bespoke web applications, from large complex applications used online by thousands of users, to small and streamlined tactical solutions used by a single business. We have built systems for medical data capture, time card recording, Q&A knowledge bases, project management and more.
When we are building a piece of bespoke software your needs as a client are at the centre of our philosopy. We are looking for opportunities to add value to your business. Custom software development isn't just an opportunity to make your current process more streamlined, but also an opportunity to add more value. The value could come from increased efficiency, better control, enhanced reporting or faster processing.
Once we have built, tested and deployed your application our service doesn't need to stop there. We offer comprehensive support for all applications that we host, including unlimited bug fixes and business hours phone/email support for users of our software. We can also continue to upgrade and enhance your software with new features as your business needs change and grow.
Another important consideration when looking for bespoke software is the owership of the source code. When we build a bespoke web application you will own your code 100%. We will give you a login to our online code repository where you can download all the code, and see all changes and updates that we make. You can take the code to another developer and host it on any standard web hosting.
We only use industry standard open source frameworks in our web development projects so you are never tied to proprietary frameworks and libraries that only we understand or have access to.
There are so many opportunities in most businesses for adding value through simple, customised software solutions that often the hardest choice is knowing where to start.
If you have some in house process that you think could benefit from custom software development please give us a call as we're more than happy to talk things through and provide you with a no obligation proposal and quote.
