Popularity and availability
Web applications are getting more and more popular because without distributing and installing the software itself, vast amount of clients can access its services via internet.
Web based applications that we do
We build web applications based on asynchronous interactive design (Ajax technology) that allows continuous exchanging small amounts of data with the server, so that entire web page doesn't have to be reloaded with every request.
Flexible product management
If a searchable catalog of products (or simply images) is needed, we develop database driven web applications that consist of management and output parts.
Web based database management software - allows adding, editing and removing items by logging in to a restricted area of the web site.
Searchable output - provides static product pages and search on the website.
Custom client management
Client management consists of a searchable list of clients where you'll be able to edit database data (for administration).
Service also provides special applications on the website where visitors are able to create their accounts and manage personal tasks (buy a product, save shopping cart etc.)
Web based content management
A good web application example is our web based content management software, which allows editing website's content without having any special knowledge of internal coding.
Smooth Step CMS comes with variety of plugins that allow to perform advanced tasks like news section, RSS output.
User friendly real estate software
We have developed real estate software and integrated it to our content management system. Each property is added to its unique page allowing search engine friendly URLs, meta titles and descriptions. In Smooth Step CMS these property pages will have tabs where you will be able to add property description, photos and features.
Innovative custom applications
Mortgage calculator software calculates monthly fee for the loan to be paid using specific formulas and parameters (interest rate and years of loaning). We have several mortgage calculators available. Weather forecast application contacts third party weather station to gather current weather conditions and 7 day weather forecast to display on the website. We have two distinct versions of weather forecasts available.
Automated database aggregation
We have developed tools to automatically gather product details and images from any provider and create a separate internal database that generates internal search engine friendly pages on the site. This method allows creating database from old product/property listings on the website. Once database is created it can be configured to provide custom product listing and administration service that is independent on listings used.
We can also develop custom web based software that is not mentioned in this page.
Web based applications are mostly database driven, allowing storage and manipulation of large amounts of information.
Large database driven websites are based on two (sometimes even more if demand is high) web servers one of which is responsible for application tasks and the other one for database storage and manipulations.
Interface and communication
There are two main internal parts of any web application: set of tasks to be performed on the server and interface and communication with remote user / administrator that is using a web browser. Client and server side scripting is a combination of various programming and communication technologies (such as HTML, ASP/PHP, SQL, Java Script, XML, AJAX) that assure interactive experience.

BunnikTours PDF app, Australia
We were requested to develop a web application in a way that it would open in an inline window with the same visual style as their main bunniktours.
Server side website caching
Expiring cache is very useful for web applications that contact 3rd party server to receive data that changes continuously.
We had time to experiment with various web design technologies, developing our own web applications: Content management system, news aggregator, RSS communicators (weather forecasts) and others.
While there are other indicators of how web site performs (SEO, ROI) here we will talk specifically about analyzing web site speed, most important parts of the website, which can hog you down and especially about large web applications, which are designed to be scaled continuously in the future.
Real estate software
Since our real estate software is built from scratch by our developers we were able to provide property listings and individual property pages that are fully search engine friendly: Each property comes with unique non numeric URL address and fields to enter Meta title, description and keywords for optimization.
