Website and Web Application Integration
The inter-webs, connected.
One fundamental benefit of the web these days is that your website and/or web application can connect directly with other websites, web apps, web services, and internal database applications. These connections can take your static site to the next level and provide a dynamic experience for your customers. We can also help you increase revenue and reduce breakage by providing a comprehensive customer experience instead of sending visitors to other online resources for payment processing or additional information.
Searchable content on websites is often integrated using MySQL, an open source, industry-standard database. Its power and versatility have made it the obvious choice for companies such as Facebook, Google, and Adobe, while its ease-of-use and affordability make it equally suitable for even the smallest of websites. Our talented team of web developers can integrate dynamic content into your site with MySQL in ways that will make you wonder how you ever got by without it.
The vast resources of the internet can also save you time and money by connecting to the services you need instead of reinventing the wheel. For example, building your own payment processing system can be quite costly, but connecting to an existing service can save you thousands of dollars1. Below is a sampling of our possible services that can be integrated into your site for a fraction of the cost of building from scratch:
- Payment gateways such as Authorize.Net, PayPal, and Stripe
- eCommerce platforms like Magento, WooCommerce, and PayPal
- Automated social networking updates with Facebook
- Mapping and geolocation services with Google Maps
- Proximity searches by ZIP Code
- Streamlined Twitter postings
- Media sharing on YouTube
- Shipping services from UPS, FedEx, and USPS
- File storage with Box.com, Dropbox, or Google Drive
- Inline weather forecast display
