Custom Solutions

Not all online requirements fit neatly into a box. You may have special programming needs to fit your business. WebStores Ltd has created custom online applications for a variety of organizations such as an online brochure creator for Chase Paymentech, an environmental reporting and assessment tool for Los Alamos National Laboratory, and an equipment tracking application for a concrete pumping company. The underlying reason for a website is to impart information to customers, suppliers or employees. Getting people to consistently use your site is the true test of a web application’s performance. Whether your goal is to sell products and services, or to keep track of data that will save you time and money, you need more than just pretty pictures.

While standard applications (such as our shopping cart software) can serve many of your organizational needs, special considerations such as interfacing with legacy systems require a custom web application. We have developed a number of such applications using ColdFusion and PHP with various databases including SQL Server, Oracle and Access. We can build exactly what you are looking for.
