Web Applications

A web application is a web site that performs a task, often performing a very specific task. Web Applications tend to be larger and more complex than conventional brochure web sites but their returns are greater.

Example of Web Applications

By their very nature a web application is unique as it is tailored to suit your requirements. Some example of web applications include;

There are many options and the emphasis is on what it is that you want. This is best discussed in a consultation where we can sit down and discuss your options.

The Benefits of a Web Application

A web application is a highly efficient system. Data is taken from a web form and can then be manipulated in a variety of ways incorporating other internal and external systems - such as email, database storage and access, credit card processing. Data can be processed to ensure that it conforms to your requirements. Credit card numbers can be checked against the card type, email addresses can be checked to ensure they are valid, rooms can be checked for availablity

A system can be a collection of modules each performing a separate task. For instance, for your online booking system you will want a public front end so that visitors can place an order through your web site. You will also need a private back end (with restricted access) to administer the site. An ordering system would require a system to alert you of a booking. This may be an email alert or a part of the site you log in to to clear your bookings.

Payment Systems

A likely use of a web application is to create an online shop. Payment options and security are highly important features in addition to more conventional web site concerns. We can establish real time online credit card processing as well as delayed credit card transactions depending on your chosen method.
