Our long-standing relationship with Lindt made us the natural choice when they needed to create an ecommerce website during the pandemic. With people unable to visit stores, Lindt wanted to bring their products to the masses. However, this was no ordinary ecommerce experience, and we knew that it would require some unique WordPress plugins.

Our custom plugins

In the dynamic world of web development, customisation is key to creating a unique and powerful online presence. Our company has embarked on an exciting journey by venturing into the creation of custom WordPress plugins, allowing our clients to take control of their website’s features and functionalities like never before.

Why custom WordPress plugins?

WordPress, known for its flexibility and user-friendly interface, powers millions of websites worldwide. However, to truly stand out in the digital landscape, a one-size-fits-all approach might not be enough. Custom plugins empower us to tailor a website to meet the specific needs and goals of your business.

Benefits of Custom WordPress Plugins:

  1. Tailored functionality: Develop features that are precisely aligned with your business requirements. Whether it’s advanced forms, unique ecommerce integrations or specialised content displays, custom plugins provide the solution.
  2. Optimised performance: Off-the-shelf plugins often come with features that may not be needed, impacting site performance. With custom plugins, you can optimise your website for speed and efficiency by including only the functionalities you require.
  3. Enhanced security: Security is paramount in the online world. By developing custom plugins, we have greater control over the security measures implemented, reducing the risk of vulnerabilities associated with third-party solutions.

The web design and development process at Negten

At Netgen, we firmly believe that your website is one of your most important marketing and sales tools. Therefore, we pay as much attention to the usability of your site as we do to how it looks.

Our process starts with getting an understanding of your website requirements before we plan the design. Once the design and web development are complete, a dedicated tester will go through everything to ensure it works as it should.
