Open Source Web Development
Open Source Web Development is great for you as a customer. In addition to not having licence fees to pay like you might have on a proprietary system you also have a great deal of flexibility with your supplier. This is because there are so many people out there who can help you with your site. Naturally, our intention is always to give you such a good service that you won’t ever leave but it is comforting to know that you have a choice rather than worrying about what happens if you do fall out with your chosen supplier.
As a Web Development Agency, we have used a variety of Open Source platforms over the years. We specialise in the Drupal Open Source Content Management System (CMS) for building non E Commerce sites and Drupal Commerce for those sites requiring E Commerce functionality. In the past we have built plenty of sites using WordPress for pure CMS sites and also Magento for E Commerce. If you have a particular need to use these platforms we will be more than happy to help you, but in the case of Magento our advice is to use a specialist Magento agency if you need something beyond a fairly basic installation. We have good relationships with other developers and will recommend an appropriate agency to you if we feel we can’t offer the level of expertise you will require.
