Web Application Development

A core competency at CF Webtools is the ability to write custom, enterprise level productivity software.  No matter if you're a start-up company or an established business with legacy code, we can build new product tools, expense reporting systems, account management applications, intranet and internet portals and re-tool DB architecture to maximize performance.  Our scope of services includes complete ecommerce solutions, SEO services, Flex and Ajax development and support, and mobile web platform development - among other things!


Web Service Architecture

CF Webtools has been working with web services before that phrase became a part of the lexicon of tech speak.  As early as 1998 we were using XML as a transport for real-time stock quotes, commodities, and news.  Web services are now a permanant fixture on the programming landscape.  With our experts implementing complex SOA, you do not need to worry that you will suffer a diminishing return on the implementation.  We meticulously plan and execute web services.  Examples of APIs we've worked with include: Stock Quotes, Commodity quotesFOS - flight data for air traffic schedules, Ecommerce - Automatic re-occuring billing (ARB), token based transactions, Verisign,, Paypal, Google checkout, Amazon Merchant services - ordering, consuming the AMZ feed, searching, etc. Other examples include integrating with social networking APIs, various Google aps - maps and earth, and most recently integrating with Sears million+ product catalog.


Business Productivity Suites

So you’ve got your word processor, your spreadsheet and your presentation software neatly bundled and working to perfection.  Independent of this wonderful suite of tools, over the years, your company has created a fantastic, homegrown custom program to handle EVERYTHING else, we’ll call it program ‘Super XYZ’.  At some point you realize that something is preventing and hindering your business from “jumping” to the next level.  Then it dawns on you - these programs are all great but they don’t “talk to” each other. Somehow you’ve got to get real-time data from Super XYZ into a spreadsheet to calculate critical financial something or others.  This is where CF Webtools can assist.  We walk you through the complexities of developing and securing your data integration and can take typically siloed business systems and bring them together within an efficient architecture which will accelerate your growth and reduce processing bottlenecks.



Customer Facing Extranet Tools

Scalable, secure, intuitive, user-friendly, responsive, secure, logically organized, accurate data, reliable, secure – hopefully these terms describe your customer portal.  No matter the purpose of your portal, be it a customer service tool, be it a data management/information toolset, or be it your product or service itself behind the login, CF Webtools has an extensive history of building and supporting these toolsets.  Our team of experts can start at the very beginning with you imagining and mapping out all you’d like your portal to be or we can jump in and provide support for an already existing mature application.   We have experience with portals that contain communication mechanisms, calendars, image management, reservations, marketing data, certified training and compliance, billing support, and much more.  We’re all about customer adoption and giving your customers what they need so YOU succeed!



Server Troubleshooting and Optimization

Flex Programming

Legacy Integration

First, we’ll probably try to talk you into upgrading – you know, the old security is no longer secure on CF8 conversation – and then we’ll do whatever you desire.  Even in 2017, we’ve worked with version of ColdFusion as old as CF5 (eventually, though, this customer wisely upgraded).  Anyway, so yes, we will work with you to support any type of legacy integration you require – and we’ll be chipper about it, as well.

At the end of the day, our goal is to provide you with a fully managed, tightly locked-down, fully hardened, secure and high performing server environment.
