Web and Mobile Development

As a leading web development agency, DIGICA is able to develop web and mobile solutions for clients that are fast, feature-rich and custom designed to meet your site’s needs.

How are Mobile Applications and Websites Developed?

Web and mobile development require an in-depth look into your business’ needs and goals. Your ideal site may be a WordPress installation, or our team may find that a custom solution would better meet your business’ needs.

Our web development company works primarily with a LAMP technology stack:

  • Linux
  • Apache
  • MySQL
  • PHP

But if a Windows-based system better meets your site’s needs, our team can work on the Windows operating system, too.

Mobile applications can be built to “speak” to your website using mobile application programming. API calls can be made to a website to allow for mobile apps to communicate with your site’s server and database.

A custom mobile app is not required for all businesses, but a mobile website should be part of every website’s existence. Some brands may also benefit from the development of web apps.

Mobile-friendly websites can be built at the same time as a desktop website utilizing responsive coding practices. A responsive website ensures that a website can be viewed across a variety of screen sizes and conform to these screens without image, element or text distortion.

What are the Benefits of Web and Mobile Development?

Web and mobile development connect businesses to billions of Internet and smartphone users. There are benefits to both web and mobile application development.

Web Development

Web development, or the creation of a website, should also include a mobile-friendly aspect so that the site can be accessed on any device. Web development helps businesses:

  • Connect to a wide range of leads
  • Custom solutions to meet business-specific needs
  • Establish a web presence
  • Increase reach via search engines

Web development allows businesses to build their web presence online. A website is just the start of the process. Through SEO, PPC and marketing, a website can generate leads to a business and allow your business to build a web presence.

Mobile Development

Mobile app development connects customers with your business in new, exciting ways. Applications can run in the background of a mobile device to offer businesses the benefit of:

  • Improved usability
  • High level of scalability
  • Integration with existing data
  • Improve customer relations
  • Faster speeds
  • Personalized comments
  • Push notifications
  • Online and offline access
  • Branding
  • Interactive engagement

A mobile web app may or may not make sense for your business, and one of our team members can help you decide what the best course of action is for your business: web, mobile or a combination of the two.

Our Process

At DIGICA, our team of developers can tackle all of your business’ needs – both mobile and web. Our team’s proficiency in development for Linux, Windows, Android and iOS allows our web design agency to provide a robust set of solutions for your project. We offer a variety of solutions, from native app development to progressive web apps and responsive web design.

We can install an off-the-shelf CMS solution, or we can start developing your website from scratch. Our mobile web developers will ensure that your site works properly on both desktops and mobile devices.

Using our cross-platform development solutions, we can produce cross-platform apps that improve accessibility and usability. We can also develop native apps for either the iOS or Android platform.

Our development process starts with a complete assessment of your business’ goals and requirements. We may determine that an off-the-shelf solution is the best option for your business, or we may find that a custom web or app development solution offers:

  • Better functionality
  • Less hosting demands
  • Faster speeds
  • Improved user experience

After discussing different options with you, our developers will create a complete project outline before making website mockups and prototypes.

Our development team will seek design approvals while working diligently on your site’s backend.

The sites that we develop are:

  • Responsive so that they fit every screen
  • Mobile-friendly to meet the needs of all viewers
  • Fast and efficient

Mobile app development can also be part of the plan, allowing your business to stay connected with consumers online and offline.

We can also develop strong communication between apps and websites to allow for a streamlined solution across all online assets.


Will I Be Responsible for Maintaining My Website?

Note: Will you offer managed solutions? I forgot to ask. Will flush this out further when we know.

Will My Website be Search Engine Friendly?

Yes. Our team works with our in-house SEO specialists to ensure that your website is search engine friendly.

How Does Custom Development Benefit Me vs Templated Platforms?

Templated platforms, like WordPress and Joomla, offer a user-friendly, quick means of getting a website online. All of the website programming is already in place with these platforms, so no back-end development knowledge is required. But your site will rely on the built-in functions of the platform.

You may be able to add plugins, or use custom coding to modify the site’s functionality. But a custom developed platform offers you the unique functionality that your business website needs. Developers can add features as needed, and there are no excess features to bog down your site.

Custom platforms are:

  • Leaner
  • Faster
  • Tailored to your site’s needs

Custom platforms are often less resource intensive, too.

Is a Mobile-Friendly Website Really Important for My Business?

Mobile-friendly Internet usage has surpassed desktop usage in recent years. Potential visitors plug your website’s URL into their browser rather than go on their desktop to view websites. Fast and convenient, over 60% of all Google searches occur on mobile devices.

A mobile-friendly website allows your website to cater to more of your visitors.

Google has also stated that mobile-friendly sites will rank higher on mobile searches. If you have a business website, it needs to be mobile-friendly to maximize organic traffic and offer the best user experience possible.

What is Responsive Web Design?

Responsive web development utilizes website coding that includes:

  • Cascading style sheets
  • Flexible images
  • Flexible layouts

When website development is responsive, the website’s contents and elements will scale to the screen size of the viewer. If a viewer is on a mobile device and goes to the same site on a desktop, a responsive site will be able to display the site without distortion on both devices.

But a site that is not responsive will not scale to the user’s screen size. This causes images and elements to become distorted, or forces the user to scroll horizontally to view a site’s content.
