Web technology to provide business solutions

Like some other software developers, we have found that web technology can be used to make bespoke database applications much more affordable and usable. See John's blog post.

John has written some apps that are delivered for low cost through the clients' web browsers. One client needed to replace old software to compute estimate costs for flat roofing. Another needed to produce job sheets.

Major Software Project

John was brought in to project manage a large web site (details are still confidential). He managed a team of three designers and seven PHP developers. Several were contractors working outside the UK. Quite a challenge to manage and coordinate!

Web Site Development

Well, that was quite something. I was booked to finalise a web site. I quickly found the site was nowhere near ready. It turned out that the project was an e-commerce site with 100 pages of PHP as well as lots of other technologies. It had been created by a web design company that had overreached itself. It's been very satisfying sorting them out - if only it had been lucrative!
