Web development

Need a development team you can count on?

Ensure your website is built the right way. Don’t risk costly rebuilds, difficult site admin, future bug fixes and breakages, insecure data or poor performance.

We develop future proof, robust, cleanly coded, upgradable websites built to evolve with your business. Here at Mainstay Digital we have an ethos and core company value of doing what we do very well.

For that reason, our focus is on website development and application development. Every project we undertake is technology-related. It also means we partner with best-in-class specialist crews such as strategy, UX, creative, design or digital marketing; or with our client’s providers – to deliver the best product for the most value.

Built for longevity

Our websites and applications are built for the long term. This means that although the digital landscape may be evolving rapidly, our products have the robust architecture, in-built flexibility, scalability and best practice code to evolve as your business does. 

We have a firm conviction that you should not be having to rebuild every 1 – 2 years – your digital platform should have been built as future-proofed as possible, and that new features, layouts, designs, campaigns or upgrades be needed, it’s straightforward, and that your investment continues to see years of return.

Best coding and web development practices

Time and again we encounter legacy websites and systems which were badly, inefficiently, or lazily implemented. Spaghetti-code situations with cross dependencies which make upgrades next to impossible.

Our development takes a best-practice approach, with a focus on clean, logical, documented code. Our tight-knit local team ensures continual quality, with tried and tested open-source tech stacks.

We love lean, intuitive, intelligent systems! This means for future, upgrades and scalability is enhanced, whilst risk and cost is reduced.

Ease of management and administration

Whether you’re building in WordPress, Craft, or a custom Laravel application, we bring together simplicity, intuition and flexibility to ongoing management for your web team. We’ll configure administration and management of content, articles, users, transactions or products to whatever level of granular management is required – and give you training if you need it.

Working together

We design and build digital products of all shapes and sizes. Website and application development often requires a flexible approach to the process.

Some phases may be linear, some may run concurrently, or the project may call for an Agile approach. Each project is unique, and so are our relationships.

Depending on your organisational or project needs, projects may be managed in a variety of forms – fixed price/scope, agile/sprint based, dedicated resources, or time and materials.

We work with our clients and strategic partners to create beautiful user experiences; robust, functional and practical products, and achieve positive, meaningful outcomes.
