Blue Star have extensive experience in bespoke web application development and is our core business, clients turn to us when other agencies lack the ability to provide a solution and we often pick up the slack where others have failed. We have a proven track record of assessing client's needs and delivering the software they require on time and within budget.
We have been developing web applications since the original CGI spec for dynamcically delivering web pages was formed over 15 years ago. We build our web applications like any other software product, embracing the concept of seperating design, data, structure and business logic into independant systems.
For many online start-ups a bespoke software solution is required that is not readily available in an off-the-shelf package, such as content management systems. This may involve development of a unique idea or website. We also offer off-the-shelf applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Movable Type, osCommerc, etc for clients who wish to use these platforms.
We can integtate your existing business applications and back-office applications with your website and vice-versa.
Software solutions we provide include, but not limited to, the following:
Bespoke Application Development
Our bespoke web applications are coded in mod_perl running on Apache using our in-house Web Application Framework, which provides modular solutions to be created using object orientated programming methodologies allowing for easily stable, scalable, and maintainable applications. We believe in high performance in our web applications, and have finely tuned database transaction handling, along with fully normalized database tables and efficient database queries along with server-side caching of recent pages. This all speeds up response time of pages to site visitor. All our bespoke solutions benefit from this technology. Our application framework is designed to be secure, many off the shelf PHP applications have known bugs and security holes, including popular solutions such as Joomla.
