Software development agency

From concept to reality, we develop software that provides solutions to your organisational challenges.

True value, without confusion

We’ve worked in various industries creating custom software that takes complicated problems and elegantly presents them as simple solutions.

We believe that the key to good design is to take things that are difficult to work with or understand and make them easy for everyone involved.


Before creating designs and writing code it is important that everybody is on the same page in terms of what exactly is being built.

A complete plan of the project is created covering every aspect of the design, from the database to the user interfaces. This means that even if the project doesn’t move ahead with us, you have a plan of your system you can take to any development team and they will know exactly what to do.

We start every project with a planning stage, profiling all future users of the software and what the software should provide them with or allow them to do. These user profiles, along with competitor analysis and our knowledge of typical user behaviour, are used to create user journey mapping that shows the most intuitive routes for usage of the software interfaces.
Creating a structural blueprint of every section of the application is the beginning of the design process. These diagrams help give all key stakeholders in the project a shared view of how the application will look to a user and agree on any amendments that are required to make sure the project delivers everything that is expected.
Once we've dealt with what the users want and how best to deliver it to them, it's time to get really technical. A UML diagram is created to give a complete visual representation of the system, all of the data objects and how they should interact. Dataflow diagrams are also created to show the data output and input on each page/section of the system and where there is any integration with external systems (e.g. APIs).
Depending on your requirements for the look and feel of the application we can create a completely customised design or we can use a design template as a base and build on top of that. Either way, there are no limitations to what we can create in order to deliver an optimised experience for your users.

Prototyping for peace of mind

Using the Figma software design prototyping tool we create interactive mockups of every part of your system so you can navigate through the design and get a true feeling of the final version on your favourite devices.

This means that by the time you sign off the design you know exactly what’s going to be delivered, down to the pixel. There are no last-minute surprises, we can move swiftly with development and prepare to launch with absolute confidence.

JDD Agency was very personable and understood our objectives clearly, offering some great ideas to help transform the original vision into something much better.

An agile development process that puts your business first

Due to the in-depth planning and design process, we are able to achieve rapid development times during the product build stage.

We work using the agile development process. This means that we can move quickly but we also have regular delivery deadlines where we can re-evaluate the needs of your business or the project and react in a way that supports any new priorities.

Development standards and quality assurance

We’re also very strict on working to the industry development standards shared by all high performing development teams.

It’s important to us as masters of our trade, that you get a well-built system with the correct architectural design.

This protects your investment as you will be free to take the project to any software development agency and they will be able to see exactly how the system works and seamlessly take on new development, not that you will ever need to look anywhere else!

Software development languages

PHP is our language of choice for backend development. We have experience with the Laravel development framework, Yii development framework and Phalcon development framework.
We work with the NodeJs programming language for backend development that needs extremely fast execution or asynchronous processes. We commonly use node for API development or headless processes like synchronising data between systems. Express is our NodeJs framework of choice.
JavaScript is a cornerstone of our development process. With its versatility and wide-ranging capabilities, we effectively use it for both front-end and back-end development. Our familiarity and proficiency with JavaScript allow us to handle a variety of projects, ensuring smooth, responsive, and interactive applications.
Expanding our technological expertise, we've acquired a substantial proficiency in SQL, the standard language for managing and manipulating databases. Our experience with SQL allows us to efficiently handle data retrieval, updates, and analysis, providing solid back-end support for any project. With SQL, we ensure reliable data management and seamless operations.

Software development frameworks

Laravel is our preferred PHP framework for backend development. Its elegant syntax and modular approach allows us to create feature-rich, scalable applications. Laravel excels at API development, data synchronization, and more, making it our choice for building efficient and reliable solutions.
With our extensive experience in the Yii2 framework development, we comfortably undertake projects requiring its robust features. This PHP framework's simplicity and high performance align with our aim to deliver sophisticated solutions. From API development to data handling, our proficiency in Yii2 enables us to meet diverse project requirements with ease.
Building on our extensive skillset, we also have substantial experience with Vue.js. This progressive JavaScript framework empowers us to create intuitive interfaces. With its simplicity, reactivity, and component-based architecture, Vue.js enables us to deliver efficient and user-friendly web applications with ease.
We are well-versed in using Angular for front-end application development, a robust framework for creating dynamic and feature-rich web applications. With substantial experience under our belt, we're equipped to handle projects that leverage Angular's design simplicity, two-way data binding, and modular architecture, facilitating interactive, efficient, and scalable solutions.
Adding to our proficiency in various frameworks, we have significant experience with Express.js. This Node.js framework aids us in quickly building efficient and scalable server-side applications. With its minimalist and flexible nature, Express.js equips us to build robust APIs and network applications effortlessly.
Further to our broad toolkit, we've also worked extensively with Quasar Framework. This high-performance, Material Design 2.0 compliant Vue.js based framework aids us in creating responsive Single Page Apps, Server-side Rendered Apps, Progressive Web Apps, Hybrid Mobile Apps and Electron Apps. Our familiarity with Quasar ensures rapid and seamless development across various platforms.
