What our customers say

We’ve been using Pale Purple for over 5 years now. There’s a lot of benefits to be gained from building a close relationship with a small but very stable and capable team.- Paul Hiscoe,

PHP Web Application Development

We specialise in ‘back-end’ web application development using PHP (keywords: Zend Framework, MySQL, Javascript, jQuery, Linux, WordPress, LAMP).

We’ve worked on projects ranging from the very small (adding a simple contact form to a website), to multi-developer-year projects used by a number of large FTSE listed businesses.

Typically we find we’re :

  • creating and looking after bespoke web applications,
  • creating or supporting e-commerce websites,
  • customising content management systems (like WordPress, Concrete5 or Drupal),
  • adding functionality to internal web applications,
  • helping public facing websites scale or be secure.
