Below is a small sample to convey the range of things we're been involved with from start to finish for clients across the Midlands.
We don't just design websites, in fact, much of our work here comes from designers who have already been through the initial phases with their clients and had designs signed off. They come to us to help them realise there designs in a secure, optimised and web ready final product. Other clients have internal design department and need help in the building phase.
We only ever use Open Source platforms for the sites we build and, we have made a name for ourselves as the leading choice for getting a non-WordPress site. For us, security, performance, simplicity, scalability and flexibility are far too darn important to risk on 'band-waggoning'. There are tons of proper CMS systems out there and simply no compelling reason to choose a 'pseudo-CMS' over any one of them. We've made a good trade too, in helping those currently battling with WordPress sites switch to something better. For those people, their support, security and even hosting bills are slashed and consequently we have an extremely happy trail of clients who previously were tearing their hair out. You can read about some of the reasons we won't use WordPress below.
Here are a few samples from the range of websites we've built for people.
Custom Coding & Integration Services
We have done a lot of work for people who have systems in place, or for those currently implementing things, but are requiring some specific bespoke functionality adding. We have also built systems rom the ground up for people. We have tackled things like:
- Custom shipping modules for Popular Open Source Systems
- Property listings integrations to pull in data from third-party systems and display in a company's website
- Insurance premium calculation engines
- Mapping systems
- Extending E-commerce systems to meet the needs of business
- Data Import/Export functions
Whilst we will work with most systems, we strongly believe in standards compliant systems that are fast, secure and easy to maintain and those which provide the client with flexibility.
Reasons Not To Use WordPress
WordPress has become so popular among web designers and end users alike, as the de facto tool for building websites. But is it really all it's cracked up to be? Sure, we here that 'search engines love it' and that 'it's so easy'', but is it actually? What't it like, technically?Read More...
What our customers say...
Redwax migrated our Exchange email to their hosted platform and installed a new server to hold our company data to feed a network of 14 computers. They seamlessly switched from our old server to the new one without any disruption to our business. Since it was installed in 2014 it hasn’t missed a beat and has enabled our business to enjoy robust data access and continuous email communications (both mobile and desktop).
