EDC Web / Media Services - Custom Web Applications

Streamlining Data Collection
and Analysis

Custom web applications can be designed to automate tasks such as data entry, data cleaning, and statistical analysis. This can free up your time to focus on other aspects of your research.

Improving Data Quality
and Reliability

Applications can be designed to enforce data quality standards and to detect and correct errors. This can help to ensure that your data is accurate and reliable, which is essential for high-quality research.


Applications can be designed to share data with other researchers, allowing you to collaborate on projects more easily. This can be especially helpful for large-scale projects or for projects that involve researchers from different institutions.

Enhancing Research

Custom web applications can be used to document your research methods and to make your data and analysis tools available to other researchers. This can help to promote transparency and reproducibility in your research.

Web application development planning is crucial for the success of any project

Through careful planning, developers can identify project goals, scope, and requirements, ensuring a clear understanding of what needs to be achieved. Moreover, a well-thought-out development plan enhances collaboration, fosters effective communication, and ensures that the final product aligns with the client’s expectations.

/ step one


This step involves defining the goals and requirements of the web application. This includes identifying the target audience, the features that the application will need, and the technologies that will be used.

/ step two


This step involves creating a blueprint for the web application. This includes designing the user interface (UI) and the user experience (UX), as well as the database and back-end architecture.

/ step three


This step involves writing the code for the web application. This includes developing the front-end (UI) and back-end (server) components of the application.

/ step four


This step involves testing the web application to ensure that it meets the requirements and that it is free of bugs. This includes unit testing, integration testing, and system testing.

/ step five


This step involves making the web application live so that users can access it. This includes setting up the hosting and domain name, and uploading the application files to the server.

Custom Web Applications: A valuable resource tool for your academic research project

If you are a researcher, consider how a custom web application could help you to achieve your research goals.
With the right app, you can streamline your data collection and analysis, improve your collaboration with other researchers, and publish and disseminate your findings more effectively.

With a custom web application developed by EDC Web / Media Services, researchers can enhance their project’s productivity, enabling them to focus more on the research itself rather than the technical complexities, thereby accelerating the progress and outcomes of their academic endeavors.
