A team of local website developers, what more can you want?

Dapth is a 100% fully in-house website development company. We do not outsource your code. Never deal with a website agency again.

This is right, we are not a website agency. We are a website development and software house. It is in this separation we have become a key digital partner for our clients big and small. The difference is our business model is not based on retainer relationships, small print, and lock in clauses. Our first command will be that we want this project to have a clear start and end date with you or your team receiving the training required to take over the website we have built. 

Our approach to your website development is what we refer to as the Dapth mixed agile methodology. A mouthful clearly explained by the services we live by Discover, Create, Develop, Support. We ensure that your website is built to the correct specification, not over engineered, but delivered in line with your budget and scope.

“What Dapth has done with the Kentico platform has transformed Perth Zoo from a 9 to 5 business to a 24 hour business. Comparing the first month of general admission sales to the previous year there has been a significant increase in online sales....”

Looking for a website developer?

We have proven it with websites of all sizes, a correctly developed website performs[NA1] . The term ‘clean code’ should be discussed more, when you outsource or rely on plugin heavy websites to showcase those ‘features’ you get a confusing and jumbled mix of a website that limps to the finish line. Sure the easy comment is to point to plugins make your website slow, and potentially exposing you to data to breaches[NA2] . But the really issue with outsourcing is the implementation of code, how difficult it is for another developer to take over the project, and the lack of control of who has access to your site, your user data and your intellectual property. We start the conversation at understanding your pain points that lead you to us talking about your website development, then work to clearly articulate your long-term goals, how you would scale up your business, are you looking to do SEO or SEM (or even know what they mean). Then we can clearly advise a direction, plus a cost linked to it. Put simply, anyone who gives you a price for a website without first doing a discovery process is about as helpful as a mechanic who tells you the cost to service a car without first checking what model you have and why you were ringing in the first place. We have worked with sole traders with a limited budget, mining companies, local councils, and not for profits. We challenge you to challenge us with your website development project.

That old chestnut! We would rather show you the sites we have built and tell you the cost (and why). No two websites are the same, that is not an escape clause, it is the fact calling out the smoke screen that is a one size fits all view of website design and development offerings. Instead we can be super transparent about the prices and why. Firstly, we will not be as cheap as an oversees or outsourced provider. However, with the issues and risk that comes with oversees development houses, or falling short of agreed deliverables, long term we will prove to be a more effective option. Factors that influence the cost of your project include number of content pages, if you want custom designs or happy for us to define your look and feel, whether you want special animations or effects, if any 3rd party integrations are needed or eCommerce, whether you would first like us to prototype and test before build, and the list goes on. We can align your project to a set budget (stripping back things that are not needed) or scope out and create a brief to achieve all your wish list items.

Do you really want to know an answer to that question? Or would you want to know what CMS is best for your individual requirements, load times, personalisation, or our favourite – what is the cheapest way to build a website? The answer to your question will change if you can be more specific, and if you simply don’t know what CMS to use then let us give you the information that allows you to make the best decision for you. Do not let someone else tell you what the best CMS is to use for your website, make an informed decision aligned to your requirements.

Our Dapth process has been crafted from years of website development projects, large and small. We guide clients through discovery, design, development, training and launch. To start your website development project you need to clearly articulate your goals, the users and key functional requirements. From this a brief can be agreed that gives a digital designer the ability to create a wireframe or prototype. Once a wireframe is signed off then a fully detailed list of deliverables (scope) can be defined, and for us at this step we then align the best technology (CMS) to deliver your wireframe and functional requirements.

Our development team either work exclusively for us, or they are working as an extension of our client’s digital teams, assigned to projects, and led by their project management team monthly. Being an agile website development team, we can discuss your unique requirements and working model requirements to see how we can help you
