Database driven systems

Better Than Average Websites specialise in building customised database driven systems. We work closely with you to thoroughly document, design, code and test your project. Your new project can contain just about anything including communication systems, data importing and exporting, image galleries, mapping systems, Content Management Systems, quoting and enquiry systems , user account systems and much more (which we have attempted to list further on down this page).

We take care of the entire process including design & documentation, coding, testing, training and after sales support. Throughout the process you deal with the one person and we take great pride in our accurate turnaround times, high standard of work and ability to convert the most complex of plans into an intuitive, functional and easy to use website.

Finally and importantly... Each job we create is your property. You have complete access to all code and content and there are no ongoing fees to access and use your system (apart from any optional hosting and domain names renewals).

The process in brief:

In our first contact with you, we will try and pull you in for a meeting to discuss your project. This meeting will cover basics on what you require and how your website will work and look. From this conversation we will be able to give you a rough quote and turnaround time of your job. All this (of course) is free of charge.

From our previous meeting and basic documentation we will now provide you with a fixed price quote to complete final design and possible detailed documentation. If you would like to continue, we then whip up full colour mock-up(s) and documentation of your new website, taking into consideration your feedback along the way. At the end of this design / documentation stage we then provide you with an exact fixed price quote and turnaround time for your entire project.

Next we chase up final website content (like text and images) then begin coding and testing. During this process you will have access to a special link where you can see your website being built.

Lastly, we train you up on any systems you may have including Google Analytics (used for website stats) and email setup. Your final invoice will be sent once your website is fully up and running and you are 100% satisfied.

On completion you will also get 12 months of free support covering every aspect of your job . See the website development process for further details.

  Our Company have used BTAS for over 5 years and they have undergone the work to put all of our 4 websites together from full website construction to Email hosting. What I love about BTAS is they deliver what they promise, meeting all of our deadlines with the minimal amount of stress. Justin has excellent communication skills which made the whole process a positive & pleasurable one. Even after the websites where up and running, any queries we had where dealt with quickly and efficiently. One of the few businesses left that prides themselves on customer service & loyalty.
