what we do


Are you looking for a secure area for your clients where they can access information? Do you have an ecommerce store where you want to get more from the accounts area? Does your informational website need a secure place for files?

Why might you need a portal?

A client may seek a portal for their website to provide a centralised and secure platform for their customers or employees to access information, services, and resources. Portals offer convenience and efficiency by offering a one-stop location where users can access personalised content, collaborate with others, and perform various tasks. By having a dedicated portal, clients can enhance user experience, streamline processes, and foster better communication and engagement.

Moreover, a portal can serve as a valuable tool for client retention and loyalty. It allows clients to feel connected and valued by providing them with exclusive access to relevant information, personalised services, and specialised resources. By creating a secure and private environment, portals enable clients to interact with the business on a deeper level, fostering trust, strengthening relationships, and ultimately leading to improved customer satisfaction and long-term loyalty.


If your customers need to exchange sensitive information or access confidential documents, a secure portal provides a safe and controlled environment. 

User Access

A secure portal allows you to grant access to specific users or user groups, ensuring that only authorised individuals can view or interact with the content. This is useful for organisations that need to share information selectively.


Secure portals can facilitate collaboration between different stakeholders, such as employees, clients, partners, or vendors. Users can securely share files, exchange messages, collaborate on projects, and provide feedback.



Secure portals can automate and streamline various processes, such as client onboarding, or customer support. Portals can improve efficiency, reduce paperwork, and enhance the overall customer experience.


Certain industries, such as finance, healthcare, or legal, have stringent compliance regulations regarding data privacy and security. A secure portal helps organisations meet these requirements by providing encryption, and audit trails..

File management

A portal provides a centralised platform for global file access, allowing users from different locations to securely access and collaborate on files and documents. This eliminates the need for email attachments or physical transfers, enabling real-time collaboration and seamless file sharing. Whether it’s a multinational organisation with offices worldwide or a distributed team working remotely, a portal ensures that employees can easily access the files they need, regardless of their location or time zone. This streamlines workflows, enhances productivity, and fosters efficient collaboration among team members, irrespective of geographical boundaries.

In addition to global file access, portals also facilitate individual file access for users. Each user can have their own personalised space within the portal, where they can securely store and access their files and documents. This personalised file access ensures that users have control over their own data and can conveniently manage and retrieve their files as needed. By offering individual file access, portals provide a user-centric approach, allowing users to organise their documents, maintain version control, and retrieve files effortlessly, leading to improved productivity and a more organised work environment.

Event Management

Event management can be integrated within a portal to provide a comprehensive platform for organising and managing events. By incorporating event management features into a portal, organisers can streamline the planning and execution processes, enhance attendee engagement, and gather valuable data for analysis and improvement.

Within a portal, event management functionalities can include features such as event registration, ticketing, and attendee management. Users can easily register for events, select ticket types, and make payments securely within the portal. This centralised registration process eliminates the need for separate event registration platforms, simplifies the attendee experience, and provides organisers with a unified view of event registrations.

Additionally, event management within a portal can enable effective communication and engagement with attendees. Organisers can share event details, updates, and important information through the portal’s messaging or notification systems. They can also provide attendees with access to event agendas, session schedules, speaker profiles, and interactive features like live polls or Q&A sessions. This enhances attendee experience, encourages participation, and creates a sense of community among event participants.

Moreover, event management within a portal offers valuable data and analytics capabilities. Organisers can gather data on attendee demographics, registration patterns, session attendance, and post-event feedback. This information can be used to measure event success, identify areas for improvement, and make data-driven decisions for future events. The portal’s reporting and analytics features provide organisers with valuable insights that can optimise event planning and enhance overall event effectiveness.

Administrative controls

Building a custom portal allows for comprehensive backend control, providing administrators with full authority over the portal’s functionality, data management, and user access.

In a custom portal, administrators have the freedom to design and develop a backend control system tailored to their specific needs. They can create a backend administration panel with custom features and functionalities, giving them complete control over content creation, user management, security settings, and more.

One of the key advantages of a custom portal is the ability to define role-based access control. Administrators can create different user roles and assign specific permissions and privileges to each role. This allows for fine-grained control over user access, ensuring that individuals have appropriate levels of authorization to view, edit, or contribute to the portal’s content and features.

Custom portals also offer flexibility in user registration and management. Administrators can implement a customised user registration process that aligns with their specific requirements. They can establish approval mechanisms, manage user accounts, and implement password reset functionalities to ensure secure user management.

Additionally, a custom portal allows for the integration of advanced backend control features. Administrators can incorporate activity logging, analytics, and reporting functionalities to monitor user actions, track system performance, and gather valuable insights. This empowers administrators to make informed decisions and take necessary actions based on backend data and analytics.

A website behind the scenes

A secure web space within a portal for generic information and blogs provides a protected environment where users can access and contribute to valuable content while ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of the information. This secure web space acts as a platform for sharing relevant information, updates, and insights, promoting knowledge exchange and fostering a sense of community among portal users.

In this secure web space, users can access a wide range of generic information and blogs that are carefully curated and organised. The information can include articles, guides, tutorials, industry news, and other resources that cater to the interests and needs of the portal’s audience. By providing this content in a secure environment, users can confidently explore and access the information without concerns about unauthorized access or data breaches.

Moreover, the secure web space allows users to contribute their own blogs and insights, encouraging knowledge sharing and collaboration. Users can submit their articles or blog posts, sharing their expertise, experiences, and perspectives with the portal community. The secure nature of the web space ensures that only authorised users can contribute content, maintaining the quality and integrity of the information shared.

Within WordPress

Building a portal within WordPress offers the advantage of leveraging its preestablished technology, robust security features, and user controls to create a secure and functional portal environment. WordPress provides a solid foundation for developing a portal with built-in security measures and customizable user controls.

In terms of security, WordPress offers various features and plugins that help protect the portal and its users. It provides regular security updates to address vulnerabilities and enhance the platform’s resilience against potential threats. Additionally, WordPress offers user authentication and role-based access control, allowing administrators to define different levels of access for portal users. This ensures that only authorised individuals can access sensitive information and perform specific actions within the portal.

Moreover, WordPress provides a wide range of security plugins that can be utilised to further enhance the portal’s security measures. These plugins offer features such as two-factor authentication, brute-force attack protection, malware scanning, and firewall protection. By incorporating these plugins, developers can bolster the security of the portal and safeguard user data.

Additionally, WordPress offers a user-friendly interface with customisable user controls. Administrators can define user roles and permissions, granting access to specific portal features and content based on user roles. This allows for fine-grained control over what users can view, edit, or contribute within the portal. Furthermore, WordPress provides options for user registration and management, enabling administrators to easily manage user accounts and monitor user activities.
