We prefer to use the most well-established, open source, government-accepted technologies that have been hardened over the course of many years by an entire global community. The open source nature of our tools results in a lower, more affordable Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), entirely liberated from long term licensing constraints.
Responsible Coding and Development
We do integration the right way. We don’t cut corners, and always apply best practices. We endeavor to identify the unique and detailed needs of every customer. We don’t just sell a standard ESB product, and we don’t try to tell our customers that they can simply knit-together their software packages through a basic interface. We deliver what each customer really needs, tailor made to the situation at hand, and sufficiently flexible to accommodate foreseeable growth in the future.
When making recommendations about suggested solutions and architectures, we direct the attention of our customers towards the most well-established products that have proven their value over the course of many years. Our solutions are stable, dependable, and reliable.
We apply Agile development methods that deliver application components quickly. Clients can expect the delivery of functional software components approximately once every two weeks (at the end of each sprint).
Customized and Unique Functionality
It’s hard to find functionality to distinguish your brand in a standard, canned, off-the-shelf product that is used by your entire industry. We deliver custom system integrations that will distinguish your organization with powerful features. By transforming the tools of your imagination into tangible reality, we can help you take your company’s performance to the next competitive level.
Personalized Team Service
We operate something like a tight-knit software task force. The continuity of our team – underscored by our status as a “Best Place to Work” – means that our customers enjoy unparalleled continuity of service over course of our long-term relationships. From project to project, you will be able to work consistently with the same familiar group of highly qualified experts who already share an understanding of your systems, needs, and interests. This distinctive characteristic of our organization translates into enhanced productivity for many customers, as well as an impression of genuine software partnership – rather than mere software development service.
Sensitive to Continuity Priorities
We respect our customers’ operations, and know that every customer system must be treated as mission critical. We work closely with our customers and their IT teams to avoid and prevent undesired effects on routine operations. We typically introduce changes incrementally, and take extra steps to ensure the delivery of only thoroughly tested, fully functional results.
When the Portland Webworks team accepts a contract, it means our employees have collectively made a commitment, and our entire team takes the commitment very seriously. Our developers stand personally behind the company’s products. We offer warranties and support agreements on all system integration work that we perform.
Our experience, our reliance on only the most stable products, our warranties, and our broader and deeper scope of expertise translates into a much higher level of dependability, and a vastly reduced level of risk. We actually do the work at our own offices. We don’t outsource projects, or use overseas partners.
Our pricing is fair and reasonable. Our Maine location often means that we can offer the same services for a more aggressive price.
