Don’t Just sit on your App Idea, Let Us Develop your Dream.

Do you need something developed? Do you want your app idea turned into a fully working prototype? Here at StormGate we build websites, apps and much, much more.

As a result we know a thing or two about development and creating web apps and what’s great for you is that we like to mix our own website development with client work! We put all that learned experience to good use for you, developing fantastic websites at a reasonable cost – you pay us the professions’ going rate – its a Win-Win business, something we hold as a key principle here.

  • 10 + Years developing professionally
  • Latest standards exceeded – CSS3.0, HTML5
  • Bleeding Edge Equipment

We typically charge a rate of £35 per hour for general work, but when you request a quote at the bottom of this page we can put a real price against the development work you need doing, and with us the price agreed at commencement is the price you pay.

How do You Develop Websites and Web Apps?

Here is a typical example of how we develop for clients, 10 (or 12) steps to getting the website or web app you want:

  1. Client requests a quotation
  2. We take a look at the request thoroughly and come up with some further questions
  3. Client responds to few questions
  4. We offer a price along with a list of deliverables and a possible start date
  5. Client accepts, work commences
  6. As developing client is updated regularly
  7. Once our work is nearly complete all code goes through quality control
  8. All code is annotated & cleaned
  9. Website is delivered to client
  10. Client is very happy, pays bill but wants a few tweaks
  11. We tweak Client’s website
  12. Another Client goes on towards success

Do you use innovative technology?

We use the latest standards in developing websites and typically we develop using the most widely used three technologies:

  • PHP 5 For Fast Pages and Web-host freedom
  • MySQL WorkBench for Data Architecting
  • jQuery for AJAX and Beautifully Usable Websites

As well as up to date tools we use the following to re-inforce our services rendered, (many developers don’t work to market standards or have a security policy!):

  • Amazon Web Services Back-ups
  • Smart Web Asset Storage and Compression
  • GIT Versioning for Recording Code Changes
  • The Latest in Graphics suites
  • Strong Security Policy to maintain your privacy

Woody came up with a great solution for us, he implemented a system which enables us to take leads from our website and automatically add them to our CRM system for our sales team to follow up. Woody produced the work on a tight deadline and met the specification perfectly, I would not hesitate to use him again and will certainly be recommending him to my business associates.
