Platform Type

Do you need a bespoke custom built platform or want to use pre-existing technology?


A fully custom built platform using a Laravel PHP framework. Best-in-class for unique platforms and long-term viability.


A template platform uses a pre-existing WordPress (or similar) framework where the technology exists and needs bringing together. Note, this greatly reduces the development cost!

Is this quote final?

No – it’s to give you an understanding on our pricing structure. Your project could turn out to cost more or less depending on other functions/features and requirements. If you’re happy with the estimation you’re given, fill out the form and we’ll be in touch to arrange a meeting.

What about hosting and maintenance?

Please note that every platform will require hosting and maintenance. Both of these services are required for your platform to be live on the Internet and are most commonly purchased annually. If you want to host your platform with us, be sure to check the hosting option in the calculator towards the end. If you want to handle hosting yourself, simply select the self-hosting option.

It’s also important to consider how to maintain your platform after it is launched, as regular updates, improvements and security patches are essential.

What about project timings?

We ask for expected start and launch dates to help verify if a project is viable or not. Rushing a project for launch is not recommended, but we can work with you to decide how to break down your platform into smaller launchable components called an MVP (minimal viable product).
