Who are Xibis?

Leading the way in bespoke software development since 1998

Xibis is an innovative web and mobile application development company operating in a wide variety of industry sectors, which include retail, healthcare and transport.  

We have a reputation for delivering secure, high-quality web and mobile applications to a number of household names, including Pets at Home, Wella, Halfords, Dunelm Mill and Interflora. Plus many more less well known SMEs.

From concept to delivery, we're with you every step of the way

Xibis delivers your project on time and to budget, working with the latest technologies. All the systems we develop are scalable, dependable, robust and secure.

From conceptualising and planning, through project management, meticulous code development and testing, we deliver a system that performs exactly as intended and achieves the results you asked for.

We use a range of modern technologies to architect your solution

We typically develop websites using Microsoft ASP.NET MVC, in C#, and also have experience of Umbraco CMS.

We have extensive experience of integrating with 3rd party APIs and web services, which includes working with Amazon Web Services. We also develop our own APIs and web services when required.

We have developed a significant number of native smartphone and tablet apps. Our current preference for developing apps is to use Swift for iOS and Kotlin for Android, although we have experience in Objective C / Java if this is your preference.

If you are looking for a new development partner to take over an existing web application or native app, we have done so on a number of occasions for many of our clients.

The above are just how we typically work, we've developed all kinds of things from Windows applications to augmented reality solutions and firmware, so please get in touch if your need is a little more unique!
