The simplicity and speed at which our website was designed has restored my faith in websites. Prior to instructing Freetimers we had been quoted some very high prices and shown some not very good websites. The process was taken step by step. Freetimers guided us and pushed us to get our content onto the site. Maintaining the site has been easy for both existing and new staff to pick up.

  • Dynamic Ecommerce Design & Development Dynamic Ecommerce Design & Development Award-Winning ecommerce that develops with you and improves your ability to compete...
     

    Ecommerce Website Design & On-Going Development that Beats the Competition

    We design ecommerce websites that really sell, and then we continuously improve them so they simplify your business processes and enhance your service delivery. Better sales, better quality, more efficient customer service, better profitability and happier customers.

    Ecommerce Website DesignFreetimers has been designing and developing ecommerce websites since 1998, so we have more than just a little experience in this area. The ecommerce websites we regularly develop are also able to deal with complex product and service offerings which most developers shy away from. As a result, our clients’ websites are able to out-perform their competitors, both in the public visible part of the site, but also in the back-end management system, which can be more easily customised to suit the specific needs of each business, without forcing them into the restrictions imposed by using an off the shelf system. If you also trade across multiple channels, our flexible multi-channel system could be the solution you need.

    If you have a new, complex or more serious than usual ecommerce project in mind, or you are looking for the internet strategic partner that has been missing for your business, then you should be talking to us.

  • Online Business Process & Workflow Streamlining Online Process & Workflow Streamlining Integrate your business processes with your website to improve profit and customer service.
     

    Streamlining & Automating Business Processes and Workflows

    Freetimers’ real business management and systems design/development expertise can help you improve and automate your business processes and deliver massive efficiencies to your operations.

    Streamining & Automating Business Processes and WorkflowsIf your business actively trades online, or has a complex service delivery that uses the internet extensively, then you will know that competition doesn’t only relate to product pricing and a slick website, but to how highly integrated, efficient and effective service delivery and management systems are comparatively. On the internet today where ecommerce is at its most fierce, the best prices often are the best because the operational and quality costs are lower than their competitors’.

    Certainly at Freetimers, we see this every day, and we actively work with our clients to help them optimise the structure of their operations to make the fullest use of the potential efficiencies available from the internet and business process automation/streamlining. In part, our most successful clients are those that see the importance of this, and we work with their owners and directors every day.

    Unlike most web design and development, creative and digital agencies, Freetimers’ directors have substantial business and entreprenuerial experience covering most business disciplines and a number of sectors, and we readily contribute this knowledge to the benefit of our clients, making great savings whilst also improving their capacity to compete.

    For an initial free of charge discussion of your on-going requirement telephone our managing director Greg Poulson on 01604-626477.
  • Complex Web Programming & On-Going Development Complex Programming, Apps & On-Going Dev Advanced web programming and on-going development that others can't handle?
     

    Complex Web Programming, Mobile Apps and On-Going Website Development

    As a first generation web development company starting in 1997, unlike many web designers and digital agencies these days, Freetimers is a ‘proper’ developer and web programming business, ie we do the complex programming that others shy away from. Basically, if it is web oriented, and possible to program, we can do it, and in many cases, we already have.

    Complex Web Programming, Mobile Apps and On-Going Website DevelopmentFreetimers built its first dynamic database-driven ecommerce website, from scratch, in 1998, and we developed our own multi-modular website management and CMS system by 2000, several years ahead of many of today’s open source platforms such as WordPress, Magento, Joomla, OsCommerce or Drupal, which most web designers now depend on. One of our developers created the first version of Captcha form protection, that was actually adopted by the W3C.

    Today we still develop new web software solutions every day, including some of the most sophisticated website systems online. An important part of our business is also working with our clients to progressively improve their service through on-going programming and automation of their business process, all linked directly with their websites. Our forte is therefore not just to build good websites and to help our clients to compete, but to help them continuously to become better at competing, making it more and more difficult for their competition to keep pace, and to eventually put them in an un-assailable position.

    If your business needs advanced programming, mobile apps development, or a business targeted programming expert by your side, you should be talking to Freetimers.

    Contact our MD Greg Poulson on 01604-626477 for an informal chat about your requirements, and you’ll see we mean business.
  • Back Office & Multi-Channel Website Integration Back Office & Multi-Channel Integration Improve your ability to compete by integrating back office and channel systems with your web system.
     

    Creating True Multi-Channel Online Management Systems & Website to Back Office Integration

    Having an efficient integrated ecommerce operation can be a key factor for any company wishing to compete effectively in today’s fiercely competitive internet environment.

    Creating True Multi-Channel Online Management Systems & Website to Back Office IntegrationWhat many companies struggle with is a multitude of online website and other channel management and inventory systems which are not integrated with each other, nor are they integrated with a central inventory, financial and MIS system. Another issue with most off the shelf ecommerce systems, is that even if they purport to provide a multi-channel solution, they rarely do, and usually require the same prices, photos and descriptions to be used for each channel, taking no account of the different market characteristics each channel presents.

    Freetimers are experts at assisting companies to take these big steps and making integration, with flexibility, possible. Further still, we help you do this in the way that’s right for you and your business, and not force you unnecessarily into the straight jacket of an off the shelf system. In fact our experience shows that standard packages can hinder a company’s progression, because in using their system the user has to organise their company somebody else’s way, and worse, the same way that many of their competitors might be doing it.

    Instead we work with our clients to help them explore the possibilities and find the best solution and the one that is right for them, ranging from pure bespoke solutions to combined bespoke and package solutions.

    We also develop multi-channel integrations with websites, Google Base, Ebay, Amazon and other 3rd party platforms, to maximise your business efficiency, whilst simultaneously maximising your channel by channel flexibility, management and servicing in terms of independence of pricing, product descriptions and packaging, and service delivery.

  • Online Startups & Major Web Projects Online Startups & Major Web Projects Big idea for an online business? We can help bring your project to life.
     

    Turbo-Boost your Startup with Help from a Proven Partner

    Freetimers has an enviable track record of online business startup successes, that we believe should give you confidence that you will not find a better web development partner to help you take your project forward to launch and a successful future.

    Turbo-Boost your Startup with Help from a Proven PartnerOne of the most important contributions we can make is that we don’t confine ourselves to just thinking about the design of your site and its subsequent marketing. In fact we take a business-centred view of your future website, and work with you as a sounding board, confidante, and knowledgable advisor on the business model, its organisation and the business processes behind the site that will enable it to seamlessly achieve its goals. What is certain is that a new online business is not just about pretty pictures and a logo, and the typical design agency really can’t contribute much beyond this. We’re very different!

    Look at some examples of our startup successes.

    Boomerangrentals.co.uk
    Boomerangrentals.co.ukBoomerang approached us with a startup idea for an online video game rental service in 2006. Initially we helped the client to determine what should be included in Phase 1 that would be sufficient to prove principle, but also within a budget the new business could afford. The business and the launch proved successful, and it won WebUser Magazine’s Best Website award in 2010. Now in 2013 Boomerang continues to grow and improve its service, with probably the most sophisticated online management system in the sector. We recently completed Development Phase 29 and throughout the life of the business we have steered the website through a myriad of hosting solutions, now with a fully dedicated and PCI compliant server system with multiple automatic data and file backups. Freetimers also undertakes all the SEO for the site, which presently ranks in the top 3 of Google for some 80% of its search phrases against huge competition, including businesses with very deep pockets like LoveFilm, Blockbuster and Tesco Direct. In addition to being No1 on Google for ‘games rental’ for several years, for an idea as to scale, in September 2012, of the 371 search phrases we actively monitor, Boomerang had 208 No 1 positions on Google, all of its most important 10 phrases in the top 5 (8 of 10 at No 1), and 82% of all the phrases in Google’s top 10 results. To find out more, see our Boomerang article in our Featured Sites portfolio.

    Simplyeducation.co.uk
    Simplyeducation.co.ukSimply Education came to Freetimers as a start up idea in 2005, as a new recruitment business focusing entirely on the supply teaching market. The main USP was to be that the business would be highly efficient from the start, all driven by an online administration system Freetimers would create, and automating just about everything that could be automated. Freetimers designed and launched the initial site very successfully, and has worked with the client constantly throughout its lifetime, continuing today. Freetimers has managed the hosting of the site to a dedicated solution, and the business now boasts over 30 staff using the system we created all day, every day. We also do all the site’s SEO (search engine optimisation) and undertake new complex web development work, every month. The business is now very successful, with a £multi-million turnover, and also had attracted investment from James Caan of Dragons Den fame. To find out more, see our more detailed portfolio article.

    These are just two of our successful start-ups of many, and we’d very much like to have a chance to help you with your startup idea. Contact Freetimers today on 01604-638421 and ensure your new venture has the best chance for success.
