About New Media Aid

New Media Aid Ltd is a boutique UK Web, e-commerce & Android app development company who have traded for since the year 2000 developing low-cost bespoke apps e-commerce solutions.

Who are New Media Aid Ltd?

We are professional Web, e-commerce & Android app developers who build affordable bespoke Web, e-commerce & Android apps from the ground up using the latest cutting-edge tools and technologies!

We develop robust, scaleable, bespoke Web, e-commerce & Android apps for organisations ranging from multi-national blue chip organisations to SMEs.

We are experienced programmers of enterprise-level applications using only the most robust, secure and scaleable programming languages, techniques and platforms.

How much does it cost for a bespoke web app, Android app or e-commerce website?

The likely development cost of a custom-made Web, e-commerce or Android app will be anywhere between £2,000 and £5,000.

However, we can provide a detailed fixed-price quote for your app development project if you contact us. We are happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) if you require it.

How can our prices be so low?

We do not employ sales staff nor do we have an expensive swanky office and therefore we have very low fixed costs and can charge extremely competitive rates for our custom app development services.

You have been developing web apps for so long, are you still cutting edge?

Web app development is a very fast-moving world where technological advances, browser capabilities and end-user expectations are evolving at a tremendous pace. Whilst we have been developing complex bespoke web applications for over 18 years, we do not rest on our laurels and we keep abreast of all the latest trends and technologies in the web app development arena to make sure we are always offering the most advanced, secure and robust web application solutions for our clients.

Some of the cutting-edge web app development frameworks we use...

ASP.NET MVC is a powerful way to build dynamic websites that enables a clean separation of concerns (i.e. pretty front-end stuff and complex back-end logic) and gives us full control over code for cost-effective agile development. ASP.NET MVC includes many features that enable fast, TDD-friendly development (Test-driven development) for creating sophisticated applications that use the latest web standards.

The Angular framework is built and maintained by a team of software engineers at Google. The key benefits of using this cutting-edge web app development framework are the speed of development (and hence lower development costs for our clients) and the actual web app performance (e.g. the new Component Router delivers automatic code-splitting so users only load the code required to render the view they request) and therefore the web apps load much faster (important when most people now access web apps on their smartphones rather than on a desktop computer).

Bootstrap is an advanced JavaScript framework for developing responsive mobile-friendly web apps. We use this to make front-end web development faster and therefore cheaper for clients. Originally created by Mark Otto and Jacob Thornton at Twitter, Bootstrap has become one of the most popular front-end frameworks and open source projects in the world. Bootstrap is maintained by the founding Twitter team and the open source developer community.

jQuery is an excellent JavaScript library. It makes lots of web app features quick to code and has a well-supported API that works on all major browsers. It has a lightweight footprint (i.e. will not slow down page load) and more importantly it is CSS3 Compliant, i.e. it adheres to W3C web standards. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community led by the inventor of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee. W3C's primary activity is to develop protocols and guidelines that ensure long-term growth for the Web. W3C's standards define key parts of what makes the World Wide Web work.

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient (i.e. does not slow down page load in the browser). Node.js npm is the largest ecosystem of open source libraries in the world. As an asynchronous event driven JavaScript runtime, Node is designed to build scalable network applications.

New Media Aid has been the app development partner for Kelly Turkeys since 2006 and has developed a number of mission-critical bespoke apps for us and we highly recommend them for bespoke application development.

New Media Aid has developed a number of advanced, bespoke apps for BAE Systems and we are happy to recommend them for bespoke app development.

Rob Morris, Vice President Marketing & Analysis, Asset Management
BAE Systems - Hatfield, Hertfordshire

These apps developed by New Media Aid mark a new turn towards technology for an industry that’s been slow to adapt until now. With no suitable ‘off the shelf’ solution available below costly, enterprise level software, we were involved in the development process from the start, getting the right solution that suited our operations and our customers.

Ben Guy, Managing Director
Hammond Produce

New Media Aid quickly understood what we needed and were able to develop exactly what was required with minimal input from ourselves. As this was the first Android app we had developed we were pleased that it was done on time and within the quoted price. We would gladly work with them again and recommend them.

Mark Austin, Managing Director
Wing Parking

Having recently moved to Android PDAs for our mobile workforce, we identified a need for a Bespoke Android App and a Web-based Management System to control it. New Media Aid demonstrated a real understanding for our needs and a "can do" attitude that we found extremely helpful. Their solution was provided on time and within budget and has exceeded our expectations. We will be happy to work with them again when we have further requirements.

Trevor Wright, IT Manager

New Media Aid has successfully developed a number of bespoke applications for us over the last few years - we have always been pleased with the results and with the ongoing support and assistance we receive.

Anne Barlow, Marketing Manager
British Chiropractic Association - Reading, Berkshire

New Media Aid undoubtedly fulfils the requirements we have for our company’s corporate website. Not only did they provide us with all the features we needed from the get-go, they also promptly come up with solutions when we have new requests.

JD Venter, Deputy Editor
Dry Cargo International - Colchester, Essex

New Media Aid developed a bespoke website and content management system for us that makes it easy to run our business. The app has been designed in such a way that we’re able to have it updated when our needs as a company develop. Our trade customers love the fact that they can login and view historical orders as well as viewing new products and ordering online themselves. I would definitely recommend New Media Aid for bespoke app development.

Shona Easton, Managing Director
Easton Design Studio - Cranleigh, Surrey

We are thrilled and very excited by our new mobile-friendly website from New Media Aid which is seamlessly integrated with a bespoke candidate and vacancy management system. They have been extremely responsive and patient and have talked us through the whole process. They are always available for queries and trouble-shooting not only on this project but also with other web apps they have developed for us. We couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Millie Harvey, Marketing Manager

New Media Aid develops business-critical bespoke applications for Gateway College and we are happy to recommend them for bespoke application development.

Paul Taylor, Network And Corporate Data Manager
Gateway College - Leicester

We are delighted with the flexible and efficient service we received from New Media Aid. Highly professional and personable which works well for us as a small business. We wanted to update our old website and not being IT specialists it was good to talk through issues and get helpful advice on new design ideas and practical solutions. Working together on the design and implementation of our new site has resulted in a user-friendly eCommerce website on PCs, phones and tablets – and we instantly saw a huge increase in business once the new site went live. No hesitation in recommending their services.

Gordon Little, Managing Director
GE Little Radiator Covers - Basildon, Essex

New Media Aid developed Gigacom Tems a bespoke and fully integrated project management system. New Media Aid fully support all our IT requirements and must be congratulated on the valued and excellent support that we continue to receive from the New Media Aid team. I have no doubt that without the high level of innovative support that we receive we would not be able to efficiently deliver the services that we provide for our customers.

Phil Taylor, Operational Management Team
Gigacom Telecommunication Engineers Management Services - Alton, Hampshire

The certificate scanning system developed by New Media Aid is working really well for us and is more efficient than our previous way of processing certificates. It really is brilliant and must have saved us a fortune in paper!

Rachel Bothamley, Senior Examinations Officer
Lincoln College

New Media Aid has supported the development of a complex store and back office system that significantly helps improve the accuracy of our processes whilst improving the efficiency and service to our clients. Couldn't be happier with a supplier (who we genuinely consider as a partner).

Stephen Mason, Managing Director
Mason Information Technologies - Nottingham

New Media Aid has an excellent understanding of our business and therefore can offer a high level, intuitive service. They have programmed and maintained our websites and CMS for nearly 10 years and are responsive and very easy to work with, we highly recommend talking to them about your digital projects.

Donald Campbell, Marketing Manager

Excellent service, clear pricing and Alastair is so easy to deal with. Would definitely recommend. We're very pleased with our new App!

Mary Stealey, Operations Manager
Just Filters - Harlow, Essex

Alastair was great at understanding our needs and building a new android app and web-facing management interface that met all our requirements. The solution was delivered within impressive timescales and at a competitive price. He kept us up to date throughout the project, was happy to be involved in conference calls to discuss setup and deployment, and was always incredibly responsive to our questions and requests for further enhancements. It was a pleasure working with Alastair and we look forward to the opportunity of working with him again in the future.
