Frequently asked questions

Answers from portal development experts

These are a few of the queries we often receive about business portal development. If you have any other questions, or simply want to know more about our enterprise portal development services, please get in touch.

What credentials do you have as business portal developers?

From Kent County Council to Pret a Manger, NewDay to John Lewis, our developers serve well-known names across the UK and abroad. The reason these clients choose us is our 30-year track record of high-value solutions.

What technologies do you use for business portal development?

Our development team’s core skill set includes .NET, Java, PHP, SharePoint, and Microsoft Azure. These technologies are ideal for fast development of secure, cost-effective, and high-performing portal solutions.

Depending on each client’s requirements, we can develop software for use in the cloud, on-premises, or a hybrid of both.

If there is an integration requirement, we typically use an integration platform as a service (iPaaS) such as Azure Integration Services or Dell Boomi Atomsphere.

What are the advantages of having a bespoke portal developed?

A portal is a reflection of your business processes. If there is a mismatch between your processes and the software, your staff will struggle and the portal will lose effectiveness.

A bespoke portal, on the other hand, is built precisely to your requirements. The first step in our enterprise portal development services is to understand your concerns, including:

  • software performance
  • ease of use for staff
  • personalised branding
  • task-specific functionality
  • industry-specific terminology
  • integration with other systems
  • single sign-on capability
  • user roles and permissions
  • data security and compliance
  • portal cost of ownership

By answering all of these issues (and more) perfectly, a bespoke portal brings the maximum value for your business.
