Web apps are everywhere. Gmail is a web app. Zoom is a web app. Google Docs. Slack. Twitter. Even Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook and Teams!

It's no coincidence that the major technology players have been migrating their native apps to the web for some time. Web apps are the perfect hybrid for any modern application. They combine the best features from websites, desktop applications and mobile apps.

This makes a web app a great choice for almost any modern software requirement!

Web application features

Web apps are cloud-hosted applications, delivered via a browser.

Our service embraces modern development practices allowing us to create business-ready, enterprise-grade web apps quickly and efficiently.

Device agnostic

Web applications are hosted in the cloud and delivered in the same way as a website, making them available from nearly any device with an internet connection - phones, tablets, laptops, TVs, watches, game consoles, vehicles, and so on.

Your users can carry your app with them everywhere they go and utilise it on any device they have at their disposal. If they need to switch devices (for example, from their phone to their tablet), their data and settings will all still be there, waiting for them on the web.

Accessible anywhere

There's no denying the accessibility of web apps. Your users can access your app from anywhere, as long as they have an internet connection.

Users can access the full functionality whether they are at home, in the office, or on the go.

Web apps make it easy to stay connected to your users, whatever your application's purpose.

Global reach

Web applications offer a level of global reach that traditional desktop apps can only dream of.

Web apps may be accessed from any internet-connected device, allowing users from all over the world to use them regardless of their location.

This gives businesses a unique opportunity to reach new markets and expand their customer base.

No installation required

We all know the pain of downloading and installing new software. Sometimes it goes smoothly but corporate users may require IT authorisation and installation problems and failures can be extremely frustrating.

With web apps, users don't have to go through that hassle. There's no need to download anything because it runs in a browser - they simply browse to a URL and the app is immediately available. And if they require access from another device, no problem - they simply log in and away they go.

Live data updates and interactions

Data is updated in a consistent and seamless manner across all devices. Real-time updates reflect price changes, news updates, shifting stock levels, and even the high-frequency updates required by trading platforms.

Customer-focused interactions become faster and easier, allowing you to truly engage with your users and respond to feedback in real-time.

While this is possible with native apps, web apps are cloud-native and distributed via the internet, so the ability to push updates in seconds or even milliseconds is built into the technology.

Enabling collaborative working

With many users working remotely at least some of the time, collaborative working has become an important requirement for many applications.

As web applications are cloud-native they enable users to collaborate live and in real-time. Workflows and processes can be simplified and improved with people working together on the same platform.

With real-time updates and messaging, everyone can stay on the same page and make sure that no one is left out of the loop.

Infinitely scalable

If you're developing a new application, you're undoubtedly concerned about its scalability. After all, you want your app to be able to withstand high volumes of traffic or traffic surges without crashing.

There's good news, though: with the correct architecture, your web app will be infinitely scalable and perform better when you need it most.

Our development process is built around serverless technologies allowing your web app to scale infinitely with no performance degradation.

Cheap to run

Serverless technologies are a great way to save money on your infrastructure costs.

Serverless is a pay-per-use model, which means you only pay for the resources your application uses, not for the infrastructure it runs on. You also won't have to worry about the cost and hassle of maintaining and upgrading a traditional server architecture.

This adds up to very low ongoing infrastructure costs.

Accessible offline

Whether users are trying to save on their data plan or are in an area with spotty service, progressive web apps (PWAs) give them the freedom to use your app without being tethered to a Wi-Fi or mobile data connection.

Like mobile or desktop applications they let your users access your software without being connected to the internet. And since PWAs are designed to work offline, they're also more reliable - even if the internet connection is slow or unavailable, users can still use your app without interruption.

Access to mobile hardware features

You might want to create an app that takes advantage of the many useful hardware features on mobile devices, such as GPS, Bluetooth, camera and microphone, storage, and push notifications.

PWAs can take advantage of almost all of your device's hardware features allowing your app to make use of all this functionality without resorting to the added complexity of a native mobile or desktop app.

Speedy release cycles

Release cycles for native apps can be a pain. Backend systems may need to be backwards compatible and users don't always install updates in a timely fashion so updates can take time to release. This can potentially result in you having to support various versions of your app. Or worse, disappointing users by deprecating or discontinuing support for features they still use.

You have complete control over web apps. Users will never be able to use an older version of your app if you don't want them to, so as you iron out processes and streamline routines, supporting your app will get easier.

Before releasing your app, you can simply A/B test new features or changes with specific user subsets. New features can be pushed out rapidly and reliably thanks to cloud-based hosting and continuous delivery pipelines, keeping your users happy and engaged.

Consistency across mobile and desktop

Thanks to responsive design, web apps look and feel just as good on mobile devices as they do on desktop computers. This consistent experience is one of the major benefits of web apps. You can be confident that the app will work the same way on whichever device users choose.

You save on the time and expense of developing separate applications while delivering a consistent user experience across all platforms.

Operational systems

There are many reasons off-the-shelf software may not meet your operational needs. This is where custom operational systems often provide an excellent solution.

There are a few different ways web apps can help improve your business operations:

  • A new UI for an existing application
  • An operational application built from the ground up
  • Creating custom application logic business logic
  • Adding an API to an existing app, allowing data to flow more easily
  • Creating custom workflows across operational systems
  • Systems integration to reduce manual processes and re-keying

Software as a Service (SaaS)

For several years, SaaS has fueled the growth and popularity of web apps. Under the hood, the bulk of SaaS programmes are web apps.

Outsourcing your SaaS project's hosting, maintenance, and security, as you can with a web app, provides you more time to focus on the app's functionality.

Being cloud-native, web apps allow SaaS concepts to reach global markets in days or weeks rather than months. A properly designed web app will scale quickly and easily and for minimal cost if the idea takes off.

E-commerce

A platform that is fast, secure and can handle large amounts of data is a prerequisite for online retailers. are also essential. The ability to track inventory levels and process payments swiftly and securely is also essential. Tracking and responding to client behaviour, giving personalised recommendations, and delivering a convenient and user-friendly buying experience all add to the appeal.

With so many advantages, it's no wonder that e-commerce software is booming as businesses of all sizes continue to embrace the power of web apps.
