Web Development

Most of our projects involve some level of bespoke web development. Our customers choose to partner with b:web because, as well as being commercially aware, we are highly skilled technically. Our Directors, Zoe and Chris were software engineers for many years before starting b:web in 2004, and this means that we are often able to deliver solutions to technically-challenging situations where other agencies might struggle.

Web development projects that we have been involved in over the years include applications for event booking, continued professional development (CPD) programs, benchmarking, party planning, customer portals, customer relationship management (CRM) applications, content management systems (CMS), and many more. There is often a requirement for bespoke database development or a migration script and our experience means that there are never any nasty surprises – we are not reliant on third-party plug-ins. Nothing is ever outsourced – everything we provide is done in-house with care and dedication.

Web Development

Our talented team includes full-stack developers who use primarily PHP and MySQL open-source programs to hand-craft bespoke web designs. We have worked on a variety of different concepts and have recently completed client projects which include web portals, bespoke content management systems and web applications for online membership sites.

We can also develop bespoke extensions for open-source web design platforms like WordPress, WooCommerce, and Magento.

Customer Relationship Management - CRM

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions allow you to add value and automation to your business.

They can provide your clients with access to your own secure portal to complete tasks such as downloading invoices and resources, settling bills, viewing proposals, and asking questions. They instantly reduce clutter in your team’s email and free up valuable time. GDPR compliance can also be simplified using a CRM, as data and transactions are all centralised.

Our clients’ systems and back-office processes are all unique, so our CRM solutions are also completely bespoke and built from scratch, from the ground up.

 
 

Content Management Systems - CMS

Bespoke CMS solutions can be chosen for a number of reasons including their flexibility, the complete control over the end product, and the security of using a non-open-source solution.

Our b:SMART CMS has been developed on the TwistPHP framework (a secondary project by our Web Systems Architect). This powerful CMS is focused purely on the tasks publishers require, including simplifying the creation of content, and on-page SEO. b:SMART can power bespoke websites, CRMs, and web applications.

Over the years, variations of b:SMART have powered over 250 websites including versions for government departments and household brand names like Jamie Oliver.

 
 

Progessive Web Apps

When a brochure or eCommerce website is not enough, you may need a progressive web application.

Recent examples of web applications the b:web team have built include: membership eCommerce websites, social media-style platforms, wedding dress design tools and online image-sharing platforms.

Our web applications are generally designed and built as mobile-first solutions and can include comprehensive reporting as well as interactive elements like push-notifications.

If a solution is technically possible, we can build it!

 
 

Customer Portals

Customer portals allow your business to meaningfully integrate with your customer’s daily activities. Your customer portal can be designed to perform almost any task that you imagine.

Some examples of customer portals that we have built recently include event management, benchmarking, event booking, professional development programs, and project management tools.

By combining  CRM and progressive web development techniques with problem-solving customer portal functionality, your business becomes automated with a 24/7 support team.
