An example of What we do!
Let's suppose you are looking to have an online presence to augment an existing business, or maybe you are setting up a new venture, well I'm sure we can help. After all we've been developing websites of all kinds since 1996. We have a variety of ways in which we can create for you a comprehensive web app. By way of an example, this site is built using a bespoke CMS, [Content Management System] so all the sections are editable in a browser. This provides a swift mechanism for turning round client sites, once the overall design and logic has been agreed.
Perhaps the above interface is not the most attractive design, but it is functional, if you want smart slick interfaces then we have done many of those over the years. Below are a few examples.
We are also busy developing e-commerce sites, using a variety of different systems, bespoke, or based on open source software, like Woocommerce, there is a wide choice because needs vary substantially.
Hosting & Technology
We have a number of hosting options or we can develop a site on your own preferred choice. Where we are the hosting provider then the system will be developed on a Unix based machine running CentOS. We have experience in a number of different technologies to achieve a solution, whether it is e-commerce an information site or a full application. We will offer an appropriate technology to suite the requirements.
Given the way the Internet has evolved it is important to be familiar and competent with a broad collection of software solutions. We have experience in creating bespoke "home baked" applications, for both e-commerce and general purpose usage, but equally we are at ease developing in some of the most popular open source offerings; Magento or Prestashop, or on the low cost shopping cart, Cubecart. We will make suggestions based on customer requirements. If you are wanting a straight forward information site with the ability to manage articles and media content, we have a wide number of choices available, from bespoke through to Wordpress, Joomla and for the most exacting sites; Modx.
However you choose to provide information and whatever its purpose, when it comes down to it a thorough understanding of databases and the manipulation of data presentation are crucial. We have many years experience of designing systems and managing data, including processing through scripting technologies, to save time and expense.
At Quadriform we specialize in producing economical and persuasive web solutions, in the last year, alongside a number of e-commerce projects, we have returned to developing smaller websites, commonly referred to as "brochureware" in the trade, which are backed by a very comprehensive CMS [Content Management System]. We were losing out to competitors using the likes of Joomla and Wordpress, offering solutions for extremely competitive crazy prices, and to be honest we believe that using such systems does not give you the flexibility required to produce comprehensive websites, as for the most part the systems are designed for date ordered news content, characterized by the term blogging software.

Of course life would be very dull if all we did was work, this personal site, linked below, celebrated its 13th year in 2016 and although it extends to over 1,500 pages there is still more to be done! Parlington History Site.
