OctoberCMS is our recommended Content Management System and a more secure, flexible and modern alternative to WordPress.
CMSs provide the foundation for modern website development and ensure that non-technical staff can maintain the website – updating copy, posting to the blog, setting up new landing pages and optimising for SEO. OctoberCMS excels in all of these areas with its highly logical structure and modern user interface.
At Coherent, we specialise in developing websites that connect to other systems, display real-time data and allow visitors to self-serve. We develop websites as standalone projects or as part of a larger project involving a new CRM, ERP or financial system.
Get in touch to see examples of our website development and discuss your project.
Others force you onto their preferred technology. We select the technology best suited to your project.
We use the .NET, Swift and GTK+ technologies to produce apps that can be installed on Windows, Mac and Linux , for when an internet connection isn’t available.
Web applications are systems that live in the cloud and can be accessed from any device with an internet connection. To build them, we use ReactJS and Django, Laravel or Symfony.
We create modern, engaging apps for phones and tablets, running Apple iOS and Android. The technologies we use are Swift, Java and React Native.
Most systems aren’t siloed – nor should they be! A CRM isn’t much use if you have to re-enter everything into your accounting package. We can help you connect an existing system, or a new, bespoke system, to your other systems so nothing needs to be entered twice.
As an accredited Xero Developer, we’re often tasked with integrating with Xero. But the list doesn’t end there. We’ve completed countless integrations to payment gateways, accounting packages and specialist industry systems.
When you get in touch, you’ll probably have an idea of the system you need, but you might not a software specification (a technical document that describes everything the system will do and how it will work). If you don’t, we’ll work with you, free of charge, to create a software specification. This will involve one or more detailed conversations, either in person or via phone or web conferencing.
Once we have a software specification, we’ll be able to tell you what it will cost, and how long it will take, to build your system.
If you ask us to proceed, we’ll need signatures and a deposit. Then, we’ll start building your system and give you several opportunities to interact with our work in progress. When you’re happy with everything, we’ll ask you to accept it, pay any remaining balance and then you can go live.
At this stage, you’ll own the intellectual property outright. Because your system will be built to industry standards, you won’t depend on us to use your system or to make changes to it in future. However, if you would like the peace of mind of knowing that the people who built the system will keep it running smoothly, make minor changes as requested and provide ongoing support, you might choose to have us host and support your system as well.
