DevOps (development and operations) is an increasing trend in enterprise software development. The goal of DevOps is to improve the relationship between development and operations departments through better communication and collaboration between the two business units.

DevOps is becoming more important in software development, given the pressures organizations like yours are under to produce higher-quality code quickly. With timelines at a minimum, the walls separating development, QA, and production can stifle progress. DevOps attempts to break through those walls.

EFS is a leader in DevOps, offering solutions that fill any gaps that exist between your software development, quality assurance, and IT operations divisions, enabling you to manage projects while improving operational performance. One specific technique of DevOps that EFS employs is Continuous Integration. Continuous Integration (CI) is a development practice that requires developers to integrate code into a shared repository several times a day. Each check-in is then verified by an automated build, allowing teams to detect problems early.

Our team will help yours improve collaboration between all stakeholders from planning through delivery and enhance automation of the delivery process in order to improve deployment frequency, achieve faster time to market, lower failure rate of new releases, shorten lead time between fixes, and improve mean time to recovery.

EFS Networks knows that Quality Assurance isn’t just a one-time test before launch to make sure no glaring bugs exist: it is ubiquitous through the entire development processes. Quality Assurance begins with requirements definitions, and encompasses each successive stage of progress, through design, coding, version control, code reviews, configuration management, testing, release management, and finally, integration.

We ensure quality in every advancing step towards completion, and even after the launch, we are there to support successful integration and make sure the performance exceeds your expectations. We’ll also create a management plan to anticipate future requirements and updates so that your system can adapt to the changing needs of your business. EFS Networks incorporates Quality Assurance throughout every project we personally develop and we even offer Quality Assurance as a stand-alone service.

When you choose a web hosting company, you are placing the livelihood of your business in someone else’s hands. Even a simple issue can cause an immediate termination of your website’s or application’s ability to function, which in turn can cripple your business. You not only need an amazing hosting company, but you need someone to manage and leverage the tools available through that hosting company to solidify your business’s continued growth and success.

EFS offers hands-on, personalized management of your website using the industry-leading hosting infrastructure of Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Customer Service

With EFS, you can make a call, even send a text or email, to get in direct contact with a highly-experienced web service manager that knows and cares about your business. No call centers here. Your concierge point-of-contact will be with you through the whole experience and deliver a solution to any issue, no matter how big or small.

Infrastructure

Shared hosting accounts share the system resources (RAM, CPU, Storage, etc.) of the server, so your data is nestled in with a range of websites or applications that may or may not be secure. Since the number of entities hosted on a shared server is only limited by the resources available to that server and the resources that each entity needs, thousands of other sites or apps can be crammed into the same server as yours. The chance that one of them will be compromised is far from negligible. When just one website or application is affected, the whole server can malfunction and thus every single entity being hosted on that server can malfunction as well.

In a much higher echelon, EFS can manage the spectrum of AWS services to offer hosting solutions that outperform shared hosting. For example, AWS Cloud Hosting allows for redundancy instances, so that even if a compute node in the cloud fails your product’s information can continue to be available and your business will continue to run smoothly. AWS also offers dedicated server hosting, which enables your enterprise access to the server’s full range of resources for your needs and your needs only. These two services are a big reason why AWS is capable of producing 100% uptime and shared hosting providers cannot.

Customization

AWS has luxury customization capability at a level that other hosting companies can’t offer and EFS knows how to utilize these AWS tools to optimize every aspect of your software experience. For example, with a VPS (Virtual Private Server), EFS can install the operating system of your choice and then install almost any software compatible with that operating system. With this tool, EFS can easily create and configure all aspects of that full computer setup. A VPS can be very complex to manage and upkeep on your own, leaving your system subject to security threats if patches are not kept up, eventually leading to unforeseen costs. EFS can leverage expert knowledge and experience to set up and maintain your VPS so that you always stay on track.

This is just a glimpse into the value EFS can provide to you through AWS. If you have a robust web presence, advanced application, or your business is growing and you need to scale, EFS can integrate these essential options to ensure that your business blossoms into streamlined processes and doesn’t blow up under pressure.

EFS will consult with your in-house IT department to deeply understand the application’s core functionality requirements, ensure a successful integration with your existing and projected future systems, and ultimately identify your ideal application. We translate those ideas into technical specifications laid out clearly in a detailed application map, and define the scope of work as we begin the task of documenting all aspects of the project development process from beginning to end.

Our distinctive experience and expertise allow us to elucidate how we will design and deliver the ideal solution to your organization and forecast how much impact the project will have when it is implemented into the turning gears of your business. We find out what is palatable for you in terms of budget and timeframe, and the project is broken down into obtainable phases that will reflect your immediate and long-term goals.

After each phase of development, we reassess how the application has impacted your business and strategize how we can scaffold on its success to improve your business even further. From there we modify future phases of the project to reflect our continually expanding knowledge acquisition. This incremental development process allows your business to stay agile and adaptive, integrating new technology exactly when it’s needed.

Mobile Apps

Whether you need a mobile app for an enterprise digital assistant or mobile phone, EFS creates applications that provide a satisfying, task-oriented user experience while also keeping your app and its data safe. If you’re creating a mobile phone app for the public, we can guide you through the various methods of monetization such as in-app purchases, subscription payments, premium features, ad-revenue, selling user data, and traditional paid apps. Our wide range of experience allows EFS to dominate cross-platform support to increase accessibility to users and employ the latest security techniques to ensure no one else gets access.

Hybrid Mobile Apps

Hybrid mobile apps are constructed with an amalgamation of web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The key difference between a “normal” mobile app and a hybrid is that hybrid apps are hosted inside a native application that utilizes a mobile platform’s WebView. This setup enables the app to access mobile device capabilities and features like the accelerometer, camera, contacts, native UI elements, etc., that are usually only accessed from inside mobile browsers, allowing increased functionality in your application.

EFS offers this service to provide considerable value to our customers. Since a hybrid app is not exclusive to a particular operating system, EFS will only have to code once, and can subsequently deploy multiple times with the same files. This gets your app to market faster and with instant availability across multiple platforms.

Requirements Analysis

We translate those ideas into technical specifications, laid out clearly in a detailed site map, and define the scope of work as we begin the task of documenting all aspects of the project development process from beginning to end.

Our distinctive experience and expertise allow us to elucidate how we will design and deliver the ideal solution to your organization and forecast how much impact the website will have when it is launched to the public. We find out what is palatable for you in terms of budget and timeframe, and the website is broken down into obtainable phases that will reflect your immediate and long-term goals.

Being Seen

The basic standards for websites are ever-evolving, with each segment of development becoming more intricate and essential to your website’s search engine ranking, and thus ultimately, its success. EFS builds beautiful web 2.0 brochure and e-commerce websites that are poised to be indexed and back-linked to the fullest extent because we only develop websites that are:

  • Fast-loading
  • Secure
  • Mobile responsive
  • Cross-browser compatible across the spectrum of browsers
  • Compliant with Accessibility & Compliance Standards as prescribed in Section 508 or PAS 78 (UK) guidelines
  • ADA Complaint

If we also host your website, we can also provide you with an SSL which is not only essential, but also further ingratiates your site to the favor of all search engines.

Being Heard

Over and above what is necessary for your site to be indexed and therefore seen by the public, websites need to valuably serve the businesses and customers they are created for. EFS creates websites that are a valuable asset to your business by ensuring they are:

  • Designed to be user-friendly and intuitive
  • Integrated with all of your social media accounts
  • Built on a dev site so we can show you the work we are doing real time
  • Developed using a CMS platform of your choosing, including WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal, so that anyone can manage and update your site without having any prior web development experience. Optionally, we can create a custom CMS for you from scratch, made to your unique specifications.

Additionally, EFS can develop a custom CRM so that your business can use data analysis about customers’ history to improve business relationships with customers, specifically focusing on customer retention and ultimately driving sales growth.

Expert Services

EFS can develop your website from scratch through custom plugin development and custom theme development, letting you build your dream to exact specifications. Our team also specializes in custom API development, where two applications are allowed to integrate through a central database server, streamlining business processes and saving valuable time.

With these tools, and our specialized experience, EFS can offer exceptional results for your business.
