Your website is one of the most important parts of your business, most people in the UK have access to the Internet, either through their home, workplace or mobile phone. Whether you are a sole trader, a small business or a large company, your website acts as your electronic business card and can instantly instill confidence in your company or can destroy it.
With your website being the first thing that people online will see, isn't it worth having something that is intuitive, insightfull and usable, something that your potential customers will see and in turn build up their first impressions of your business? We believe that company websites should be original, they shouldn't use templates or resemble the huge amount of websites that all look and work in the same way. This is where Swift Digital comes in, we design and more importantly build websites from the ground up, there are no templates here, no Wordpress and no other template driven platforms.
We are not an agency, we are a London based website design and development company that employs in-house staff, and we believe that this is the key driver to having completed a large number of websites that have already received countless positive comments and accolades.
Our staff are fully trained and experienced in programming and software development, and using the latest technologies frequently produce bespoke websites tailored to suit the project. These website development projects range from a one-page scrolling website right through to a complex CMS driven website that integrate fully into a database server and other third party systems.
Unlike the larger software houses, our developers are fully trained in all aspects of website development, they each program the site from the back end database, CMS programming and front end development including the look and feel and styling. The majority of website design and development projects undertaken are coded by a single programmer and then tested and verified by another.
It is our company policy not to use templates or template driven sites such as Wordpress and Squarespace. As a London based website development company, we create all our websites and applications from scratch, we design, engineer and build the databaases, develop the website pages from scratch and create our own styling. This we find, is the only way to create websites that are functional, efficient in their operation and most importantly unique.
We find that with template driven sites, you are already starting with a design that thousands of people may have already purchased, and then with the actual programming, we are limited in what we can do. If additional functionality is required usually plugins or modules need to be purchased and plugged in. This isn't something that is done within Swift Digital. Our software developers will build your website or application from the ground up giving you a truly bespoke system.
ll too often we see that websites online look great on a desktop or laptop screen, but then when viewing them on tablets and mobile phones it is a different story, the graphics don't line up, spacing is not given between components and in many cases they look terrible. The reason for this is that all the work has been directed into the desktop views, it almost looks like no care was taken to ensure that the mobile devices render the websites properly.
Our in-house website developers are perfectionists and are meticulous with the delivery of their projects. We spend the same amount of time on tablet and mobile development as we do on the main desktop/laptop development. We always ensure that the website is programmed to be as perfect regardless of which device the user is viewing it from.
The key point to make here is that we are a group of passionate individuals and we undertake these projects as if they were our own. We cannot release a website that isnt looking perfect, funtioning perfectly and giving the user the best experience.
Every website and every project will vary depending on the requirements and complexity. In order to give you an idea of what our website design and development projects would cost, we have given some examples below:
