We develop websites using open source software, particularly the Drupal content management framework. We also release the code we develop under open source licenses.
Using open source software has many benefits for you and for us.
You are not tied into us for future development or maintenance of the website
At any stage you may engage other suitably experienced web developers who will be able to see, understand and use the code we develop for you. This means we can only rely on your continued custom if we give you a great service - not simply through locking you in to proprietary technology.
The software can easily be extended by any experienced web developer in the future as new opportunities arise for your business or new technologies and tools emerge.
Lower total cost of ownership
There are no licensing fees to pay, so you're able to focus your budget more on developing the custom functionality you really want. Also, you're not locked into ongoing licensing and upgrade costs. Open source software can also be hosted on an open source server stack, which leads to further cost savings.
Because we're building on the work of a worldwide community we can deliver tested quality software in a fraction of the time required for bespoke development.
