Mike Ashford, AutoEvolve

"Northgate Systems worked closely with us to create a website tailored to our needs. Despite our many changes, nothing was too much trouble and we ended up with a superb website that does everything we need, including an excellent car search function. The site has boosted our business and improved our profile and professional image. We had worries about being left stranded with little technical expertise once the site went live but the admin system has proved very easy to use and the support offered by the guys at Northgate has been brilliant. I would definitely recommend them to other auto traders."

Janet Boakes, TyneHealth Limited

"It has been a pleasure to work with Northgate Systems introducing a website for our organisation. They are a fantastic team, who have guided us through the process. They act promptly when requests are made and nothing is too much bother. This close relationship has resulted in a really great site as I feel that we developed this together before putting it out in to the public domain."

Chris Proud, Stepping Stones Nursery

"Northgate Systems worked closely with our team to create a website tailored to our needs. Despite our many changes and new requests, nothing was too much trouble and we ended up with a superb website that does everything we need. The site will dramatically improve our image and facilitate communications with parents. It should also start to reduce our staff admin time. Since going live the Northgate team have continued to sort out any issues or new requirements quickly and efficiently"

Louise Hodgson, Aspects Counselling Services

They were also really helpful and friendly and offered good advice when I needed it!. I’m really happy with my website and have had lots of positive feedback on how professional it is."

Gary Smith, Evolution Football Coaching

"Since getting in touch with Northgate to help us with our website at our business launch in Spring 2014 they have helped us every step of the way. Northgate Systems have helped us with many aspects of our marketing both online and offline. They also helped us to prepare a business plan and marketing strategy and have been a big part of our success and growth."

Julie Oliver, Harrington Brown Estate Agents

"Northgate Systems worked closely with our team to create a website tailored to our needs. Since going live the Northgate team have always been willing to sort out any issues or new requirements"

David Jennings, Tyne Tees & Tweed

"Over the year we have bombarded the NS team with countless requests for meetings, amends, requests and updates. Nothing has been too much trouble and the resultant new logo, website and management program has been a huge success."


Bespoke CMS

There are many off-the-shelf CMS systems available such as Wordpress, Joomla and Drupal each offering a ready made solution through the connection of multiple modules. However, the quality of these modules can be inconsistent and most are written using programming languages such as PHP which are not suited to large scale development. Due to these issues we have developed a bespoke CMS system that can be tightly integrated into your project resulting in better performance and a simpler user interface.


Bespoke E-Commerce

In cases where the type of product or online sales process do not fit well with an existing shopping cart solution, such as Magento or Opencart, we can develop a custom E-Commerce system. You should consider this option when:

  1. Your product allows a high degree of customisation by the end user.
  2. You have a complex sales process that does not fit the traditional shopping cart system. 
  3. You need very tight integration with your back-end systems during and after the sales process. 

Online Payments

One of the main components of any E-Commerce system is the ability to take payments online. We currently have modules available to integrate with most major payment gateways including PayPal, PayPoint, SagePay and Barclays SmartPay.
