Web Application Development

quotation mark
Web applications provide a great solution for organisations looking to streamline existing digital or offline processes

The complete package

OWA has been developing secure enterprise web applications since 1995.

Web applications continue to deliver benefits to our customers, providing vital interfaces and integration points between an organisation’s internal or external systems.

We offer a complete solution from initial project scoping and wireframing through to development, fully managed hosting and support.

Developing efficiencies

Web applications offer large efficiency savings made by automating processes, which also reduce the need for data replication.

Users can interact with web applications across a range of platforms and user interfaces from the desktop and laptop through to tablets, mobiles and apps.

We understand the importance of data security and we develop web applications in accordance with Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) standards.

You can see examples of the web applications that we have developed for clients in our case studies.

System Integration

We also design and develop integration solutions to allow your web application to interact securely with third-party systems, whether they are back-office, external, bespoke or application programming interfaces (APIs).

We understand the importance of keeping your web application, its integrations and associated data safe and secure.

Our team can provide expert advice and skills to ensure that data is only transferred using recognised industry standard secure technologies and appropriate resilience is also built into the processes.

Project Management

We view good communication as a key part of the success of any web application development project and our approach to project management is based upon this.

We are happy to work in a way that best supports your objectives and can utilise agile, waterfall or blended project management techniques to ensure successful delivery.

Why not contact us to learn more – we’d love to hear about your project or enquiry.

We build relationships too

With offices in Oxford and London, we offer all of our clients UK-wide design and development, managed hosting and support services.

We know the value of building strong relationships with our customers – we are proud to say many have been with us for a number of years.

Proactive monthly support

OWA provides comprehensive support for all the web applications we develop, starting with an inclusive 12-month warranty against any bugs or errors.

Beyond warranty, we continue to support every digital product we develop for as long as it remains mission-critical to your organisation.

Fully managed UK-based hosting

Support can be combined with a managed hosting arrangement at our UK-based data facilities, providing a single, joined-up service for your web application.

Knowing exactly where your data is stored geographically is important – our hosting facility locations mean your data is fully protected by UK law and is GDPR compliant.

Protecting your system

Our hosting and support services are underpinned by a range of rigorous security measures.

Alongside monthly patching, as an OWASP member we offer regular manual testing of your mobile and tablet apps using OWASP standards to check for known exploits.
