Website Development

A well purposed and optimised website is central to the success of most organisations and at the heart of your digital identity

Communicating your message

OWA has over 25 years’ experience creating websites. We offer a complete solution from initial project scoping and wireframing through to development, fully managed hosting and support.

We know that for many of our customers, a website continues to play a pivotal role in external or internal communications. In fact, in plenty of cases it will be the primary location for your message, your campaign or attracting new business.

Through a clear understanding of your audience and stakeholder needs – public and internal – we aim to deliver the most suitable website for your requirements.

Built to perform

We understand the complexities of meeting differing, sometimes competing, demands when building a new content-managed website.

From front-end users to site editors and IT teams a lot of people will have an idea as to what the website should look like, how it will work and what technologies should be used to deliver it.

We don’t just design good-looking websites. We go the extra mile to ensure they are secure, accessible and perform well, all of which can help to improve organic search engine rankings.

Whether it’s a simple marketing brochure site or full-blown ecommerce offering with third-party integration, we are there to help explain the options and make recommendations along the way.

You can see some of the content-managed websites that we have developed for clients in our case studies.

System Integration

We also design and develop integration solutions to allow your website 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 website, 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 website 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.

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 website.

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.
