Mobile Friendly Brisbane Web Development

Why Choose Us?

There are 1000's of web developers out there. So why choose us? Well, we are confident that the bulk of the web developers out there, are novice software developers that perhaps rely on WordPress mostly (or one of the other PHP-based full-stack frameworks), have some graphics skills and are 100% Windows users. So their sites look nice, but lack the skills to resolve issues efficiently/correctly, find complex websites hard/impossible and their sites are typically vulnerable to hackers exploits and defacing.

We are also confident that most backend web developers can only write PHP code. While most websites might use PHP code, it is extremely vulnerable to exploits such as cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injections, buffer overflows, etc. Don't take our word for it, read Why Does PHP Suck?. We highly recommand using Python instead! If you would like a full-stack framework, consider Web2py.

We are true experienced software engineers and modern graphics designers. We have been building websites for various internet and embedded solutions since 2001. We have many skills most web developers don't. Firstly we have been using Linux since the 1990's (most of the worlds web servers run Linux). We can do advanced databases, analytics, statistics, AI, real-time or other complex objectives. We also have been reverse engineering search engines like Google since early 2000's, so we have a very good understanding of all the old and new SEO tricks. We are also skilled bot developers, so that saves you time and money, let alone makes your site autonomous! Oh yeah, and we also know penetration testing, so we can ensure your site is secure against automated and manual hacker attacks!

Some of our Brisbane Web Development Experience

http://www.stsirons.com/sts-stirrup-irons/
Years Active: 2015+

The STS Irons website was by us to facilitate the sales and marketing of the award winning STS irons we also designed and prototyped.

In terms of frontend code, its HTML5 based and uses the bootstrap framework, allowing the site to be mobile friendly out of the box. It is one of the most modern aesthetically pleasing websites we have done, as it utilizes our graphics experts, that came on board in 2014. As you can see there is also some cool eye catching effects.

In terms of backend code, it is one of the most simplest sites we have done. It only has one form at this stage. However was setup to allow a shopping cart, when the client is ready.

http://www.icepikk.com
Years Active: 2014+

The iCEPIKK website was created to facilitate the sales and marketing of the iCEPIKK mobile app we also designed, prototyped and released.

In terms of frontend code, its HTML5 based, but not mobile friendly. It is a simple landing page website to show case the promo video and interface you to the native mobile apps. As you can see, the landing page is rather aesthetically pleasing.

The mobile apps, used Sencha and PhoneGap frameworks. This allowed us to efficiently compile and release a Android-based PlayStore app and iPhone-based AppStore app, within minutes.

http://www.tipeezy.com
Years Active: 2013-2016

Tipeezy was very popular in its day. It allowed people to make footy comps, for footy tipping between mates, family and colleagues. It was 100% free, and was a world first footy tipping system. At its peak had over 17,000 users and over 4,500 footy comps. And scraped footy fixtures data in real-time and handled all the analytics to calculate users scores and comp winners in real-time.

The webapp and mobile apps, used Sencha and PhoneGap frameworks. This allowed us to efficiently compile and release a Android-based PlayStore app, iPhone-based AppStore app and PC-based web app, within minutes.

http://www.revbook.com
Years Active: 2010-2013

Revbook was very popular in its day. It allowed users to buy and sell cars, bikes, boats, caravans and trucks. It also had a real-time chat window to talk direct with users and dealers. And a forum for car enthusiasts. It was 100% free, and a world first all-in-one car enthusiast system. At its peak had over 20,000 listings. Listings where scraped from many dealers in real-time.

It used jQuery and jQuery UI features, however overall it was a 100% custom frontend and backend website. The graphics was impressive for its era. And the backend code was advanced to allow real-time updates, and advanced search features that carsales.com.au couldn't compete with. The SEO was done by us also, and its performance was outstanding.

http://www.softwarecare.com
Years Active: 2009-2012

This website was a sports odds analyzer that helps predict match outcomes based on betting patterns. It parsed XML feeds which consisted of 1000's of bookmakers, and 100,000's of various sports games odds. It would then crunch the numbers in real-time to provide optimal bets. It also provided a history of odds for future predictions and to flag possible false positives. It was rather fancy, and made alot of users rich. Unfortunately the odds feed provider produced increasingly incorrect data over time, which caused too many false positives and late data. We considered creating our own parsing systems for each bookmaker, but that involves some significant on-going overheads which was not financially feasible.

http://www.penboy.com
Years Active: 2004+

Penboy is a gallery of pen drawings. It is a simple site, that allowed our client to add new drawings efficiently before the days of WordPress, etc. It is well overdue for an update.

http://www.coletek.homedns.org
Years Active: 2001-2006

This was us back in the day! The site offered development services (like we do now), but also provided a partial autonomous shopping system to allow resale of various electronics. It had shopping cart features. Lots of backend tools for current/past orders. Many admin backend tools for statistics. The website scraped various wholesales in real-time, had currency conversion (via xe.com) and PayPal credit card payments. It also had some advanced analytics to define popular and featured products. For early 2000, it was a popular shopping based website.

http://www.lowzo.com
Years Active: 2006-2009

We developed this website for ourselves as a spin off from our shopping based services back in 2001-2006. It was a world first shopping comparison website. Also allowed anybody to add products they wanted to sell. All 100% free. We called it the "Purchase Engine" (to compete with the "Search Engine").

Information About Brisbane

Brisbane is the capital and most populous city of the Australian state of Queensland, as well as the third largest city in Australia, with a metropolitan population of just under 2.0 million. It is set close to the Pacific Ocean, and is situated beside the Brisbane River on plains between Moreton Bay and the Great Dividing Range in south-eastern Queensland.

The city is named in honour of Sir Thomas Brisbane who was Governor of New South Wales from 1821-1825. The original settlement grew from a harsh penal colony established at his direction in 1824 at Redcliffe, 28km to the north. The colony was moved to what is now the location of the Brisbane CBD in 1825, and free settlers were permitted from 1842. It was chosen as the capital when Queensland was proclaimed a separate colony, in 1859. The city developed slowly until after World War II, when it played a central role in the Allied campaign as the South West Pacific headquarters for General Douglas MacArthur.

More recently, Brisbane hosted the 1982 Commonwealth Games and 1988 World's Fair (Expo '88), and also the Goodwill Games in 2001.

Brisbane has a humid subtropical climate with hot, humid summers and dry, mild winters. From late Spring through to early Autumn, thunderstorms are common over the greater Brisbane area, with the more severe events accompanied by large damaging hail stones, torrential rain and destructive winds.

Our Clients

Amazing Customer Testimonials

We met with Luke Cole from COLETEK and very quickly realised that he was very knowledgeable in robotics and prototyping. What separates his company from the rest, is that he had a unique value proposition - COLETEK offers a tele-operated / robotic unit for rent and with the flexibility to be modified to build proof-of-concepts. That unit lowered both the cost and time for us to produce a video showing a very challenging concept. In general COLETEK's service was great value. We would recommend them - they will get it done.

Miguel Araos Miguel Araos

We engaged COLETEK to conduct a series of research projects on robotics and we very pleased with their technical skill, creative thinking and hard work. If you need to prototype a complex technical idea, they are a great partner to work with.

thumb Stephen Phillips

thumb Steve Sennett
RPX Technologies Inc., Oklahoma, USA

As the proprietor a DIY environmentally pest control products business I have been more then impressed with COLETEK's design capability and professionalism in assisting to realise an idea into reality. From concept, CAD drawings, 3D modelling, alterations right through to the finished product. I am extremely happy with our new termite control product. I have no hesitation in recommending COLETEK's services.

thumb Paul Faranda
EBC Enviro Bug Control, Northern Rivers

I consulted COLETEK for some work, commencing in 2014, and haven’t looked back. The project was very important to me, and COLETEK not only saw that but exuded sincere enthusiasm about the project; they are attentive, and thorough in their research and development service. They are a wealth of information and advice, for many aspects of the entire engineering and commercialization space, and this has been invaluable to me. I look forward to continuing work with them long into the future!

thumb Josh Goicoechea
Evios Pty Ltd, Brisbane

In the development of our new product Smart Syphon we had a tight deadline to launch the commercial version of our product and experienced some issues with our drawings. Luke and his team dealt with the issues, worked through the week-end and delivered a quality outcome on time.

thumb Gavin Kelly
Islex Australia Pty Ltd, Brisbane

Our company has been working with COLETEK and Luke Cole for several years. Luke is very intelligent in many areas and has provided us with excellent designs and service. With the addition of a marketing section to provide brochures, packaging, etc. COLETEK is a one-stop shop. Based on our experience, we would highly recommend Luke and his company.

thumb Adrian Morgante
Intelligent Inventions Ltd, Gold Coast

COLETEK have provided one to one communication throughout the development process and gone above and beyond in bringing our ideas closer to becoming a reality! Luke's expertise and knowledge with computer software and electronics is Jedi like, but what I liked most about working with him was his willingness and ability to think outside of the box.

thumb Jarrod Stephens

thumb Mike Haines
Haines Video Productions, Sunshine Coast

I would thoroughly recommend COLETEK they provided me with excellent feedback and engineering knowledge with regards to our idea. They also have continued to help us with what direction we should take and introduced us to other professionals that have also guided us. I suggest anyone who has been thinking of something they would like to pursue should contact them to get the most realistic approach of making it successful.

Greg Franich
Brisbane

I had a technical design and prototype job I needed done and had contacted two companies in Brisbane before I discovered COLETEK. From my first conversation with Luke, I knew that he was the best person for the job and he delivered under budget and within the required timeframe. The device he manufactured for my company will save us thousands of dollars and it is highly likely that we will on-sell the device to similar organisations. I recommend COLETEK for any design and prototype work you can imagine for your business.

thumb James Hourigan
Eraza Laser, Townsville

We worked with Luke from COLETEK to develop a prototype for a new venture. Luke was able to give us practical advice on how to execute the project inline with our budget that was super useful. What has been endearing, is that even after the build was complete, Luke continues to touch base with us offering help to keep the momentum of the project going forward.

thumb Matthew Hayden
Conversion Kings, Brisbane

Thank you for the fast and efficient service you have provided us over the years for 3D printing prototypes of specialised containers we are developing to manufacture. The 3D printing has been beneficial in perfecting and obtaining the perfect containers to suit the purpose and our needs.

thumb Linda Lonsdale
Rowdy's, Tweed Coast

After approaching COLETEK with a few sketches of a plumbing tool I had in mind Luke and I immediately bounced a few ideas around. Leaving things with Luke he quickly produced some 3D images and ideas we subsequently used. Before long COLETEK produced an operational 3D printed prototype of the tool. I was then able to use this prototype to seek funding for further research and development.

Kyle Berryman
Brisbane

We have used COLETEK on a couple of occasions and found their service to be professional and on time. We specialise in engineering and design of height safety equipment and since a lot of parts are made by casting from stainless steel we require a quick model before we proceed with the tool manufacture. COLETEK has been able to provide this quickly saving us valuable time and giving us peace of mind knowing our parts will look right when casted from stainless steel.

thumb Jan Kroupa
Safety Roof Anchors, Sydney

I'm in the early stages of my prototype design. I have worked with Luke for a couple of years now and in that time I have found Luke to be very reliable, responsible with my design, honest and trustworthy. What stood out the most was Luke's pride and commitment that he undertakes to ensure a positive outcome. I consider it a privilege to call Luke an associate and have no hesitation in encouraging others to do the same.

Linda Wells
Sunshine Coast

We recently engaged the services of COLETEK to perform some penetration testing on our systems. We found Luke flexible and accommodating with our specific needs. Luke provide what we needed to show our clients our security measures with our systems. I would have no hesitation in recommending Luke.

thumb Nathan Murray

Every single time they have delivered work of highest standard and meet our project deadlines. It's a pleasure to work with COLETEK team headed by Luke and hope to work on many more projects in the future.

thumb Martin Dominick
The K9 Centre AUS, Brisbane

I have outsourced many projects through COLETEK over the years for a variety of applications. Applications such as a online based software platform that pulls live data feeds and updates in real-time to the user. A custom built website for adding users and products that achieved over 20,000 listings. Mobile applications. Data recovery and hardware repair. Custom SEO services and secure hosting services. I choose COLETEK because I know that a job will get done as requested and within a reasonable time frame. Also I'm a stickler for security and they're the best.
