Websites

We help in designing, defining requirements, and tendering for content-rich extensive information websites.

Building a website from extensive content masses requires careful design of data structures, user interfaces, and functionality to create a service that aims for good information findability, a pleasant user experience and a positive impact on users. Up-to-date data is ensured by easy-to-use content management tools.It is essential to create a sustainable foundation when designing a large, complex website. Information pages need logical structures so that the users can find what they are looking for in the service and content creators can maintain the service concept, even after the launch of the new website.

Solutions for service paths, user experience and text content must be made on the user’s terms in order for a website to successfully guide the user in the desired direction. Before this is possible, it is necessary to identify the desired directions for each user group: these goals are prioritized in concept design.

The choice of a content management system for a large website will determine its costs for many years to come. The required technical features can be implemented at a lower or higher price, but the cost of the content creators’ effort must also be considered.

We will tender your service to find the ideal implementation partner, with whom it is easy to continue the work based on the clear plans created by North Patrol.

SaaS search solutions in Finnish websites in 2023

51 weeks ago

These days, internal search functions for websites are more and more often implemented as separate SaaS (Software as a Service) services. This can simply mean that a cloud-based search engine crawls the site regularly and forms a search index based on the contents and descriptive information of the site. In this case, only a search field and the user interface needed to present the search results need to be added to the actual site.

As part of our last year´s Web technology data report covering 2,500 noticeable Finnish websites, we also looked into which SaaS-based search solutions have been used on the sites. This article discusses the share of SaaS search solutions in Finland and a little bit in other parts of the world, and what the solutions are suitable or not suitable for.

How we differ from our competitors?

  • We specialize in digital service design

    We specialize in high-quality design and requirements specification of digital services. Our mission is to help customers succeed in their software project by creating the best possible foundation for implementation – whether it is an agile implementation done inhouse, a project done with a partner, or a publicly tendered project.

  • We don't sell coding or licenses

    Many software companies recommend software solutions that they also implement themselves. We don’t do that. We don’t do software implementation projects or have partnerships with technology providers. Our perspective on the software market is broad, as it should be for our customers. Our goal is always to find the best possible software solution for our customer, whether it’s a custom-built solution, a SaaS service, an open-source platform, or a combination of these.

  • We are realistic and forward-thinking

    We design digital service concepts, implementation methods and architectures that are sustainable and can be further developed. We place great importance on the feasibility of software solutions, the availability of good partners and the predictability of costs.
