How it works

1. Audit your code

Your code & servers are checked & any security risks are highlighted in a comprehensive report.
Find out more

2. Make it portable

Your website is made 'portable' so it can easily move to any server & have any developer work on it.
Find out more

3. Secure & protected

We are on call for any support and optionally any ongoing development requirements.

Do you have any of these concerns?

Could my site go down for an extended period?
Has the server been secured against hacking?
When did the backups last run? There are backups, right?

It is hard to get changes made or new features added

Your freelancer went snowboarding last month and she hasn’t come back. When you call your development company they say they can look at it in a couple of weeks. But, hang on, this is urgent. It needed sorting yesterday.

How hard can it be?

With other types of software you get support contracts.
Your support queries get answered quickly and you’re back up and running again in no time.
That’s what you need for your website: straight forward, timely and capable support. Someone you can turn to when things go wrong.
Someone to sort problems out without a major fuss or extended delays.

Don’t take our word for it …

Web software drives our business and Siftware helps us keep it all running. Whether that be adding new features, making suggestions for improvements or jumping on urgent problems; they are a core part of our business.

John Wright

As an experienced developer I have been impressed with how Siftware have handled taking over the support of one of our web applications. The initial risk report was detailed and very useful. Furthermore the work done to make the application ‘portable’ – so any developer can work on it and we can now easily move it to any server – has been particularly valuable. Going forwards it is going to be much easier to maintain our code.

Reliability, expertise, and availability are critically important to us in a supplier. We get that from Siftware, along with an honest assessment of whatever the situation is with our custom PHP applications.

Sounds interesting, but I have some questions…

  • Who are you?

    Siftware has been providing development, support and maintenance services for over 11 years. We have many happy & long-standing customers. We’re UK based and if you are too, we’d be happy to arrange a meeting.

  • Why Siftware?


    We support and maintain existing complex, bespoke PHP applications like yours. It’s our 100% focus and we do this one thing very well.

    Working with existing code is different to starting from scratch. Unlike some of our competitors we won’t suggest a complete re-write of an application when we first encounter it. We understand that your application represents a significant investment and whilst keeping it secure and maintained in a cost effective manner is essential, we also recognise that if the application is currently providing value to its users and revenue for the owner then a pragmatic outlook is best.

  • How do I know you won't also be 'too busy' when I have a problem?

    We specialise in supporting existing web applications. We’re not distracted by having to constantly win large new-build software projects, our business is 100% set-up to support businesses like yours.

    Our systems keep track of the number of clients with support contracts and ensures that we’ve always slack into our schedule to handle demand peaks.

  • I don’t want to alienate our current designers or agency

    That’s fine, we work well with our peers. We’re not looking to steal away any design work or web design services; it’s not what we do. We only supply support services or do maintenance work on complex, behind the scenes web software projects.

  • I'm a developer or agency. If my client signs up, will you take work away from us?

    No. Our business thrives on referrals and it would be commercial suicide for us to start alienating our peers.

    Take a look at our service designed to help freelancers or agencies.

  • What about maintenance jobs or getting new features added?

    No problem, we’re here ready and waiting.

    If you need the odd piece of ad-hoc work doing, we just book you in to our next free slot.

    If you have a larger volume of requests then we can agree a set number of days per month and these get placed into our schedule first, ensuring that we are always working on your project month on month.

    You will get to see constant progress.

Any questions? Get a free consultation.
