Web Programming and Development
If you have a programming requirement involving a website or other application we can help you. We have our own in-house programming team which we find is preferable to using contractors or outsourcing overseas, which is what the majority of our competitors do. The benefits are greater reliability, quality and commitment. You can depend on us that we will do a good job for you.
Website Programming and Business Systems Development
Most of our programming work is on websites and their functionality and related administration systems, which many of our clients use for managing core aspects of their businesses, including sales, orders, payments, products, debtors, inventory and CRM. We are constantly developing new modules and functionality, both for us and for clients, expanding and refining capabilities which translate into cost savings, better quality, and enhanced customer service capabilities for our clients.
Because of this, our clients have gained considerable comparative advantages over their competition, as progressively we make their systems and processes work in the ways that are best for them, instead of straight-jacketing their business processes into standardised packages produced by developers without direct business knowledge. These advantages grow and grow, and the result is that a number of our clients websites have become the leaders in their respective sectors.
The fact that we are advancing technology and resolving issues and uncertainties with our programming and development work is recognised and supported by the UK government.
PHP and Other Programming Languages, Frameworks and Platforms
We program using a number of languages and frameworks, having based our principal systems on open source PHP and the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP). To find out more about our PHP and LAMP stack programming please click on the link provided.
Complex Programming, Bespoke Development, Apps and Major Projects
Freetimers has been coding for the web since we started in 1997, and because of this longevity, we've acquired a lot of experience and expertise. As a 1st generation web development pioneer, we've also had to be very inventive, because for many years there were no models to follow.
That meant often we had to create them from scratch, and the result is that we can deal with levels of complexity in requirements that many agencies walk away from. We seem to have carved out a niche of being able to deal with complex applications, website and business systems, and the development of new major start-ups relying heavily on new technology and functionality.
This has also meant we have thrived with complex ecommerce businesses, and so have accumulated clients with complex requirements. Our ecommerce management system, for example, is one of a very few that actually does provide true multi-site and multi-channel management. We also do a lot of integrations with 3rd party systems such as accounts, CRM or logistics. To find out more about all of these please use the picture links provided on this page.
So if you have a complex website, app or a new requirement that you suspect may be beyond your current developer, you should contact us as most likely we will be able to accommodate it.
