Process

From the initial meeting, we worked closely with the client to ensure the right outcome was achieved. To enable us to tailor the designs towards the right clientele, the initial design stage was a crucial part of the process to underpin the whole project. The fundamental UI elements were built into the web app and then refined and interconnected to produce the polished final product.

 

The Angular6 framework was used in conjunction with Typescript to build the frontend for this service. This allowed the frontend to be built server-less in scalable and maintainable Javascript code, designed to run anywhere.

 

ExpressJS, a framework built on top of NodeJS, was used to create a bespoke solution for the server-side portion of the web project, providing secure authentication, and allowing multiple simultaneous connections to ensure users can always access the service.
