Building solutions that scale with the familiarity of a WordPress CMS
Since day one, we’ve built websites harnessing the full power that WordPress offers enabling us to build enterprise level solutions for our clients.
On top of the feature-rich default WordPress functionality – a tool utilised by over 43% of all websites on the web – we have undertaken extensive development to enhance the standard offering, which offers a wide range of benefits, including:
of the top 100 websites in the world are powered by WordPress (including Fortune 500 companies like NBC, CNN, and the NFL).
We take your security seriously. That’s why we use cloud hosting infrastructure utilising the latest technologies and managed via secure access control methodologies, with distributed and load balanced server setups available.
Our CMS’s are extra secure, including enforced password strength, multiple login fail lockout, and non standard login URL. Within the CMS, multi-level user permissions allow you to lock down CMS access across your team and service providers.
For automated monitoring we have 24/7 security scans running to detect vulnerabilities or unexpected file changes. Enhanced security protocols such as PCI compliance and web application firewalls are also part of our security offering.
Our dedicated engineers have a wealth of experience to ensure WordPress remains as secure as possible; which is paired with regular automated backups. In the rare event of a security breach, code and data can be quickly and easily restored to working order.
Our enterprise development strips out unused WordPress features and functionality to deliver only what your customers need when loading your website. Projects are optimised with industry standard tools to ensure your website is as lean and performant as possible.
We stay up to date with the demands of core web vitals to ensure performance is a help and not a hindrance to SEO scores too.
All of our enterprise builds use the latest tools and technologies to ensure files are optimised and compressed against the latest techniques available. We aim to only use a minimum amount of widely supported/trusted WordPress plugins in order to avoid bloat.
Our websites are developed mobile-first, ensuring all layouts offer both a great user experience and are lightning quick to load, even on slower connections.
We know that as your business scales, so does your digital infrastructure. Our hosting infrastructure can grow with you along with temporary scaling hosting for those spikes of traffic and demand generated from a range of traffic driving events.
Where appropriate, we can take a ‘headless’ development approach, as a way to decouple the front end and back end functionality of a website, allowing for increased website load performance even as visitor counts rise, without needing an expensive hosting solution.
Our optimised code is written and tested to be able to run in both low and high traffic instances, ensuring your website doesn’t slow down whatever the usage.
Futureproof Enterprise Websites
We build your CMS experience which fits your needs for both now, and easily extend its capabilities for the future based on your businesses operational requirements.
Utilising the latest WordPress editor experience – Gutenberg, offers you the very best CMS editorial experience; allowing you to preview how your page will look as you populate your content from your bank of bespoke layout features.
A great site also needs great on site SEO. We highly optimise our websites so they are quick to load, reducing page times and therefore significantly lowering bounce rates – resulting in more traffic and greater ROI.
Enterprise projects offer flexibility to easily create new pages consisting of layout components from across the website, each optimised for good SEO practises, as well as allowing you to pick and choose important factors such as heading tag usage per-page, to ensure no SEO issues are introduced when publishing content.
Our mobile-first approach to building websites ensures that your website ranks as strongly as possible in Google’s mobile-first indexing.
We have extensive experience of integrating a whole host of third party platforms and services into WordPress projects; everything from property management feeds, jobs application processes through to CRM’s.
Integrations are able to both pull information into WordPress either periodically or real-time, as well as pushing key data securely back into services such as mailing lists or call centre platforms.
We can help you choose from a wide range of payment providers for eCommerce solutions that can be seamlessly integrated into purchasing journeys or charitable donation flows – we tend to recommend Stripe to handle payments due to its many payment merchant features and ease of integration.
Our framework is proven to deliver results for our clients.
The discovery phase forms the building blocks of every project. We get right under the skin of your business, defining user needs through analytics and identifying your commercial goals. It gives us the insight we need to make a difference.
We design with data, crafting solutions around real customer activity. Our designers strip back the unnecessary and focus on what’s important – delivering simple, engaging digital experiences that work.
In the build phase, vision becomes reality – but it’s far from the end of the line. Everything we create is with scale and future in mind, with a cycle of iterative improvement continuing long after launch.
How charities can develop accessible digital products
Designing and building digital products that are set up for accessibility success.
Can Wordpress handle a large site of content and features?
Yes, that’s why it’s used by Fortune 500 companies like NBC, CNN, and the NFL. However, if we can see an enterprise level WordPress project doesn’t fit your requirements, we will advise you of other approaches.
WordPress is easily hackable isn't it?
Like any online service, if it’s not well maintained across a number of areas such as server security, hosting, plugins etc this can lead to vulnerabilities. We put in place the infrastructure to make sure sites are in a secure state.
Isn’t WordPress just an off the shelf theme?
There are many off the shelf templates available on the web. We don’t use templates but design and develop sites that are bespoke to your requirements. Themes also only make up the visual part of your site, other bespoke functionality has to also be developed.
What's the difference between your enterprise and standard WordPress projects?
A large enterprise project will require a larger budget than a standard WordPress project. Enterprise level projects have a full in depth discovery phase at the start to understand the digital and commercial requirements. Enterprise level solutions go far beyond building a website. We here to best support you on a day to day basis during and post launching the first version of your enterprise level solution.
Do you offer WordPress support once the project is complete?
Yes, we certainly do. Please check out our Support page for more information.
