The web is everyone’s most valuable digital asset.
It’s almost impossible to overstate the value the Internet can deliver in today’s marketplace. And as time goes by, its impact will only grow. That’s why it’s important to choose a web team that understands how to leverage online tools for real business results. Espresso Moon is a top Houston web development firm that creates web applications, web portals, mission-critical websites and e-commerce tools to facilitate vital business processes and help you deliver value directly to your marketplace. Our customers range from independent entrepreneurs, to mid-sized businesses in virtually every sector, to important nonprofits and academic institutions, to global leaders in major industries. What they share in common is a reliance on online technology to fuel their success. Here are a few of the ways web-based solutions are driving performance:
Online tools and web-based software that give industrial firms increased control over important KPIs.
Web apps and portals to empower remote workers to perform critical tasks in seamless virtual environments.
Massive data-crunching capabilities delivered through sophisticated web-based tools to users around the globe.
Tools that let retail, B2B and industrial buyers configure, evaluate and purchase anything that can be sold.
Web-based and mobile tools that use RFID, barcodes and GPS to track and manage all manner of inventory.
Accounting, sales management, inventory control, HR, financial reporting, valuation and many other functions.
Internet of Things
Digital tools to control operation and manage data from remote sensors, complex tools and industrial robots.

Tools to automate remote inspection processes and manage labor, dispatch and data analysis.
Web-based solutions to the challenges of tracking and managing the flow of products around the world.
Web Apps Versus Websites
Web apps and websites are very different animals, and Espresso Moon develops both. A web application is a software product that lives on a web server and is made accessible to users via the Internet. A website is generally informational in nature, although many also have features like e-commerce or profile management that are technically web-based software. Every business has a website (or most do anyway), but most don’t own custom web apps. While there is a great deal of overlap between websites and web apps, at Espresso Moon we define a web app as a software application developed for delivery via the web, that might otherwise be developed to run on the user’s computer or server. Again, Espresso Moon, your Houston web development resource, delivers both custom web apps and custom websites.
How You Can Leverage the Web for Your Success
Web apps let you untether your workforce and automate and distribute work processes throughout your organization with collaborative toolsets you can make accessible to exactly the people you choose.
Portals to performance.
Custom web portals give you control of your teams, your markets and your critical stakeholders. They can empower you to manage your proprietary digital products and your web presence from a centralized toolset.
Paths to profit.
Custom corporate websites engage your stakeholders, empower your employees, drive your brand and connect customers directly to your value promises through the power of e-commerce and online community.
Custom Web Applications for Business and Industry
A custom web app is a software application custom built for your specific requirements. Unlike a computer-based program stored locally on the operating system of a computer or internal server, a web app lives on a web server and is accessible via the Internet.
Examples of web apps include statistical analysis applications, remote inspection tools, web-based business management solutions and shipping and tracking applications. These are only a few examples, of course. The bottom line is that virtually anything that can be developed for a local computer or network can also be developed as a web app (often with many advantages over computer-based software). As a top Houston web development provider, Espresso Moon delivers web apps that make a difference.
Some advantages of web applications:
Web apps run on web browsers, so they’re accessible on any platform, from any device, 24 hours a day.
Updates are performed behind the scenes and usually require no user-level involvement.
Since there is only one version, users never have version compatibility issues.
Support and maintenance are handled at the server-host level and costs can be spread across multiple users.
Web apps don’t take up any space on your company servers or hard drives.
Software piracy is more difficult and less common than with computer-based applications.
Custom web apps and the business processes they support are easy to monetize through subscriptions and e-commerce.
