2017 has been a crazy year for us all at Jerram, we’ve expanded our team by more than 100%, we’re moving offices because of said team expansion AND exciting projects we’ll be working on in 2018. Plus, we’ve managed to round up 12 things we’ve achieved for our customers into one fabulous infographic. But in case you wanted a more in-depth explanation of just how great we are, I’ve written an article to help explain how we’ve helped our clients.
So, sit in front of that open fire, grab a glass of mulled wine and a cheeky mince pie, and read on to find out what we’ve been up to in 2017.
Experts in what we do
Our 12 expert developers have spent 5733 hours maintaining customer websites and web applications. With a little bit of maths, you can work out that that’s almost as many hours as that in a year, let alone a ‘working’ year. Our guys have worked tirelessly to make sure that our client’s websites are kept in tip-top condition and that they make it into the deep dark scary world of the internet. And stay there! By allowing us to look after their websites, we’ve helped them save 5733 hours, to do what they need to do for their business. Happy in the knowledge that everything is in safe hands.
Those 12 expert developers have also managed to build 12 custom websites and redesign 8 others; each with special programming and integrations from external data sources, and API’s to dynamic and interactive content. Making and redesigning ‘unique to you’ websites is something we’re really proud of. Your business is an extension of you, so why shouldn’t your website be?
When building and redesigning websites, we’ve ensured that we’re always reflecting the brand of our clients and delivering easier, more secure content management. We’ve used that dynamic data and integrations knowledge to help 22 customers visualise their market data in unique and interactive charts and tables across both websites and applications. Not only does it look great, but it fills their clients with confidence because it looks professional and credible. With client demand for things like dynamic data so high, we had to create 12 custom plugins to help develop unique features and functionality which added significant value to their sites.
Our talents don’t end at just websites
As well as all things website based, we have created and developed 5 custom web apps, as well as native IOS apps and Android apps that use WordPress as the core CMS. This is something that is both a new and an exciting concept; making it much easier for clients to have mobiles apps as well as making it easier for us to offer! Which brings me on to mentioning one very exciting Internet of Things (IoT) project which we’ll be starting properly in 2018. I’d love to tell you more about that one (because it’s super exciting) but we signed an NDA!
But to be able to create all these fancy websites and apps, our developers didn’t just click their fingers and hope for the best! They have used 35 different programming languages, including React, Node js and Laravel (I just about know English!). As well as taking time out in their free time to continue learning new and modern techniques. All this, whilst still maintaining 99.99% uptime (which is pretty darn good!) and making sure not a single one of our 72 hosted websites have been taken down by cyber hackers. Meaning that not only are all our websites free from malicious code and viruses, but they can withstand cyber-attacks. Neat!
