Whether it’s complete mobile apps, building CMS themes and plug-ins, adding e-commerce, integrating CRM & business applications or optimising sites for mobile devices we can deliver on your creative vision.
Since 2005 KLOC Digital Solutions has been working for leading design companies to deliver high-performance digital projects across scores of different business and industry sectors. Our growing success has come from three things – firstly great working relationships with our design clients based on clarity of understanding, solid project management skills and good communication. Secondly, we take ownership and pride ourselves on being reliable and flexible to deliver on time, no matter what it takes. Lastly, our talent pool of developers’ technical skills mean we are confident in developing ground breaking sites and apps that keep pace with the best designs.
We offer a full range of software development services and systems integration. Today customers’ sites and apps sit at the very heart of their business and need to be highly capable, connected and reliable. Working for our design agency clients we can provide a number of services:
We can deliver mobile apps for smartphone and tablet across android, and iOS (apple) devices to give you a complete range of digital capabilities.
We take your great website designs and ideas and apply ‘best in class’ technologies such as WordPress and DNN (+ some good coding skills), to create complete websites, ready to launch.
To meet more complex or specific functionality requirements we work with the latest tools and modules to extend the boundaries of what’s possible with basic CMS functionality so almost anything can be achieved – E.g. Build a client-specific event booking module or add a new payment gateway). Similarly, we can use these tools to create or adapt websites to work on any device.
Making things look good is what you do for your clients every day, but making this happen on a website requires programmatic rigor and skill – and that’s where we come in. Our goal is to create clean, fast loading pages and interfaces to key data and online applications.
Also important is how a page performs in different browsers and how it renders on different set ups or devices. The rise of the mobile device to consume web content is now a driver for many customers wanting to improve the experience for their on-line customers and prospects. KLOC is also well placed in terms of coding and programming skills, not to mention know how to run develop or integrate cloud based applications that can be run using a modern browser.
Just as important as functionality is getting the structure and navigation of the site set up and maintained correctly. Knowing how and where to place content or use of headings and images is all part of the skill set and experience that KLOC brings when creating sites and translating design ideas in to web pages that perform. Our approach and methodology means that we develop sites that are both search engine and user optimised. In case of the latter, for example, setting up content that can speed up a customer journey or click to action.
KLOC places high importance on collaboration with its design agency customers, not least when it comes to good communication and alignment with other stakeholders in any web development project. Depending on the size and complexity of the project, we manage and QA the overall site from software bugs, web site accessibility, usability and even design.
Websites have long ago moved from being static on-line brochures to become customer centric portals available anywhere, anytime and on any device. At KLOC we know that change is not only constant but fast when it comes to web development. One key area is the integration and links between the website and other internal and external systems such as CRM, accounts and any number of apps and data feeds. Our aim is always to make this as seamless as possible from a web user perspective whilst at the same time keeping security and performance in mind.
Depending on what’s required by you or your client, KLOC has developed the necessary project management skills and technical abilities including; HTML coding, systems analysis, software development, system architecture and testing to comply with the required specifications. In addition, we have a deep understanding of web services and internet comms protocols and are also knowledgeable in back-end platforms which are also developed by us.
Some of our creative agency clients require specialist website functionality that cannot be achieved easily with a standard platform. To meet these requirements our development team has a strong track record in developing any bespoke website using tools such as.Net, PHP SQL Server, MySQL. This could range from a single-purpose, custom website or a complete business application.
Are you increasingly being asked to design for mobile devices? At KLOC our mobile development team can help you turn your designs into business grade iOS or Android apps, to deliver specific or personalised content to a chosen device. If required, we can also provide the necessary development for back office/CMS integration or data capture.
Your clients may also require e-commerce capability to be added to your web design. This may be for an online store, a booking system or an event management system. Here again our team of developers and experts can help with a range of ecommerce platforms including woOCOmmerce, Jigoshop and nopCommerce.
For each of the above – or for a more bespoke solution, we can also handle the different card payment and integration options and make sure the overall solution meets PCI DSS compliant standards. We already have proven success with numerous gateways including PayPal, WorldPay, Sage Pay and Authorise.Net.
