Black and white and web all over.

It's our job to make our clients lives as simple as possible. That means taking care of the nitty-gritty when it comes to development, effectively translating your business goals into a technical specification and online strategy.


The technology that we use:

The web is constantly changing. Our adaptability means we make sure new standards are always adhered to. New technologies are not used for the sake of it, but embraced when we believe they will enhance a clients project and offer them a competitive advantage.

Some of the technologies and services we enjoy using include: Ruby on Rails, Heroku, Amazon S3, HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery.

PANDR Technology

Ruby on Rails

Ruby on Rails Don’t let the silly name fool you. Ruby on Rails is a robust, open source, web application framework for the Ruby programming language. We are Rails specialists and our clients love it too. The technology allows our team to develop dynamic database driven web applications, quickly and efficiently.

From our clients perspective, the beauty of Rails is its ability to allow us to deliver custom built, scalable Websites that meet their requirements, on time and within budget.

Rails provides the perfect balance of structure and flexibility and the popular maxim within the Rails community of Convention over Configuration is one we believe in strongly.

We're not the only advocates of Rails either, it's used extensively across the web, companies such as: Twitter, Groupon, Soundcloud, and of course The 405 all use Rails to power their high traffic sites.

As well as building bespoke websites and business applications, we have used Rails in the past to interact with Twitter, Flickr, Facebook and Last FM as well as a number of other API's available across the Internet.

Cloud Hosting

Heroku are our hosting partners of choice. They provide a "productive, powerful, and scalable cloud application platform". Heroku enables agile deployment of our applications, without the cost and complexity that would be involved with monitoring and maintaining servers ourself. Using Heroku allows us to concentrate on what we do best, designing and building.

Tied in closely to hosting, is our use of Amazon S3. We use S3 to store all your media assets: images, audio and any video that might be associated with your website. It allows us to "store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web".

Web Standards

We work in accordance with the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Standards. We do this by writing code that validates. Writing semantic and well structured code makes our websites usable and accessible for people of all abilities.

Our Accessibility page will explain some of the techniques we have employed throughout this site to make sure it is accessible to you.

Google Analytics

Analytics is one of our favourite tools. We use it to study the performance of your website, from page speed to page views. It helps us to monitor how well SEO is performing and let's us know where improvements can be made.

All PANDR sites come with Google Analytics baked right in, so our clients can also see who is visiting their site, where they are in the world and which pages they are looking at, clever eh?!

Search Engine Optimisation

Search Engine Optimisation Adhering to Web Standards and writing well structured HTML makes our websites easy for search engines like Google to index.

When it comes to SEO, we believe in organic growth. We achieve this through close collaboration with our clients in order to understand their business and regularly improve their web content.
