Egressive provides heavy-duty web application development services, typically for all-of-business mission critical web systems which facilitate complex workflows, integrate disparate systems, provide web services, and have special user interfaces.
With the powerful Ruby on Rails framework, we build web-based applications that allow businesses to manage complex systems, and achieve the holy grail of business information management: all your important data in one place, and one tool that lets you manage it (but doesn't limit you).
With emerging web interface and display technologies like jQuery and Raphael, we create web applications that not only fit your business needs like a glove, but they can be beautiful with intuitive, draggy-droppy dynamic user interfaces that feel more like a cutting-edge desktop application than a web page, while still remaining web standards compliant.
Allowing external collaborators, customers, and suppliers access some of your internal data - securely - is an easy step when we build your website with the Ruby on Rails framework - it provides an industry standard "RESTful" web services interface as a byproduct of normal development.
These applications often replace fragile or inflexible legacy systems like outdated stand-alone MS Access databases, or other isolated or unsupportable systems that need to talk to other systems but can't due to technology or licensing limitations. Because they control fundamental business processes, these applications warrant a higher standard of programming rigour that isn't normally justifiable on less critical systems: we take a belt-and-braces approach for testing and managing updates for these applications using:
- test driven development
- automated unit test suits
- continuous integration
- disciplined development->staging->live roll-outs
Many of these applications are accessed by people using mobile devices - we have experience building specialised iPhone and Android optimised web interfaces.
