  • Membership 
  • Search
  • Personalisation
  • E-Commerce
  • Email campaign management
  • Staff and events directories
  • Mobile
  • Search Engine Optimisation
  • Social media integration

Mobile Development

Our expertise in mobile design and development extends the reach of your users in a mobile-first, cloud-first world, enabling them to be more connected than ever before.

Our development team have been building responsive websites and applications for over 10 years, working with custom applications for native systems on demand and applying this experience to cross-platform operating systems covering iOS, Android and Windows 10.

All ClearPeople’s solutions are mobile responsive by default, meaning your users have a fluid and engaging experience when interacting with your brand online no matter what device they choose to use.

What can we do for you?

As leaders in the digital workspace, our mobile solutions can help your business excel in both its internal and external communications. We will create a robust mobile strategy based on your goals and objectives, with a particular focus on user experience.

We’ll help you enable your staff, partners and affiliates to work more efficiently wherever they are in the world, reliably and securely. Our custom development of cross-platform applications can help your workforce find the right people in your company, track their working hours and log their time, as well as grant access to your intranet features directly from their pocket – both online and offline. What’s more, give your workforce the flexibility to work on systems regardless of their device. Whether your business has its own bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy or has a mobile device strategy, our team can assist you to implement and deliver an outstanding global remote working service.

For your customers, our mobile applications allow you to enrich your engagement approach and increase brand awareness, enable a seamless mobile log-in experience, provide secure access to data with the touch of a fingertip, and encourage donations on the go.

With four out of five UK adults now owning a smartphone, and almost two-thirds of UK adults having access to a tablet, optimising your content for mobile has never been so important.

Our expertise in delivering mobile-ready web applications combined with a heavy investment in native applications that integrate with Office 365 and SharePoint on-premise means that your employees and customers alike can interact with your brand wherever they are, on whatever device they use.

As standard, all our solutions are built for mobile devices with a minimum of three screen sizes to a wider bespoke range if required. Our native cross-platform applications are delivered by using the Microsoft Xamarin framework, our preferred approach, that provides complex and reliable client-server applications as well as API integration, native apps and more. This allows us to provide a frictionless experience of your brand, with the same app running smoothly across the most common mobile devices in the market like iPhones and typical Android devices including the Samsung Galaxy series, as well as tablet and desktop formats like the iPad or Surface Pro.

 

System Upgrades

A systems upgrade project demands intensive planning and implementation to ensure your organisation meets hard deadlines and more importantly, remains within budget. We’ll work with you to put your upgrade roadmap into action, performing a test upgrade before a final upgraded solution to ensure you can fulfil your full digital potential and give your customers the best possible experience online. 

If your current website, intranet or DM system is reaching the end of its support lifecycle, we can work with you to better manage this end-of-life transition and to fully understand how the latest technology can help your business provide a better customer experience.

Migration

Part of any upgrade project to a new platform requires a content migration or a user migration. For a content migration, the process usually begins with an audit of the current content where we identify content types and taxonomy term sets. A mapping exercise will then take place to map the content types to the new data templates, before actually generating and running migration scripts. More advanced tasks such as migration of assets (documents, images, etc.), auto-generation of URLs mapping or post-migration clean-up can also be offered (for example, clean-up of rich content to achieve cross browser compatibility or AA accessibility level).


Integration

We deliver complex integrations with multiple systems, with specific experience in:

  • CRM (Razors Edge)
  • Payment providers (Paypal, WorldPay)
  • Community sites (Telligent)
  • Document Management Systems (SharePoint, Worksite)
  • Search platforms (SharePoint, Recommind)
  • Active Directory

We can also work successfully with other technical partners to deliver components or modules for integration in a third-party system and integrate components or modules delivered by a third party into our own CMS solutions.


E-Commerce

Our knowledge and experience of implementing e-commerce websites provides you with a secure and robust online business easily manageable by you. ClearPeople has proven its expertise in providing e-commerce for the following purposes: retail goods, donations, subscriptions and memberships (access to member’s only area and content). ClearPeople uses some of the latest e-commerce technology developed specifically for the Sitecore platform.

Current features include:

  • User Profile Management - see and edit user profile information from the website and from within the Sitecore client
  • Persistent shopping basket - anonymous users retain their shopping baskets for a configurable period of time (default, 30 days)
  • Per-user order history, accessible from both the website and within the Sitecore client
  • Unlimited number of products (hardware and software infrastructure and licensing allowing)
  • Unlimited number of categories and sub-categories
  • Explicit personalisation framework
  • Anonymous implicit personalisation framework
  • Multiple baskets per-user (i.e. for wish-lists etc.)
  • Multiple shipping and billing addresses per user
  • Group-based address handling (for B2B)
  • Order Flow / Dropout statistics
  • Multiple Payment Providers (i.e. Paypal, WorldPay, Barclays ePDQ)

Functional Testing 

Testing is the process of evaluating a system component by manual or automated means to verify that it satisfies specific requirements: it determines if the system meets specifications and whether the system meets operational business and user needs. It also helps build confidence in the system by providing insight into the software delivery (including testing each component and validating the system against requirements). 

We cover: 

  • Smoke testing
  • Sanity testing
  • Integration testing
  • System testing

Non-Functional Testing

This testing is the type of testing done against the non-functional requirements. Non-functional requirements tend to be those that reflect the quality of the product, particularly in the context of the suitability perspective of its users. It can be started after the completion of Functional Testing. The non-functional tests can be effective by using testing tools. It is usually conducted to understand the behaviour of the application under a specific expected load. Load testing is performed to determine a system’s behaviour under both normal and at peak conditions. In this we cover the testing of software attributes which are not related to any specific function or user action and used to check the readiness of a system. We cover load testing, performance testing, accessibility testing, cross browser testing and usability testing.


Front-end and Back-end Testing

Front-end testing is performed to verify the visual design is aligned with the build and to test any JavaScript interactivity. Back-end testing is verifying how an application interacts with a database and interfaces with communication. This covers data integrity, validity and performance as related to data. Different parameters can be chosen for monitoring. A good back-end test will help minimise the burden of the front-end test. Back-end test methodology has many things in common with front-end testing and API testing. Structural testing and functional testing are more effective approaches in back-end testing. They are overlapped in some test cases. However, the two methods may discover different bugs. At ClearPeople we do both types of testing. Unit testing is part of our back-end testing which is performed by our developer right after completing a set of requirements to verify if the end product matches the customer requirement.
