:: 1st Feb 2015 – Upcoming sites
Cox Web Design is currently working on a wide range of new and updated sites for 2015. The company continues to work extensively with Rail Media on several new ventures and reworking some of the company's existing sites to bring them bang up-to-date with the latest web design trends. Time is also being spent reworking one of the Dave's personal favourite client websites, the designs for which are coming along really well (more on this later this year). Who knows? After almost 8 years since starting the company, the Cox Web Design website may get a full redesign at some point, but as is always the case, it is the clients' work that is Cox Web Design's number one priority.

:: 31st December 2014 – Startin Tractors website
Startin Tractors are a long established business that deals with the sales of tractors and other agricultural machinery. The company approached Cox Web Design, looking to restructure their existing back-end administration system to cater for their growing business and to allow flexibility as their company continues to develop.

Cox Web Design created a new backend for the company using PHP, MySQL and the Symfony framework. The site allows the company to effectively manage their stock and orders as well as automatically generate reports and promotional material.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project was the ability to generate and scan QR code stickers to allow Startin Tractors staff to quickly look up details on a vehicle with a tablet or mobile phone, without the need to manually search for items using the website. Using a wireless connection it is possible to just scan a code and be able to directly view and edit the information for a particular vehicle while standing right next to it. Customers can also use their own mobile device to view a summary of the tractor information, such as the number of hours, registration date and power when looking for potential purchases as they venture round the company's extensive collection of vehicles.

As with all of Cox Web Design's new sites, the customer facing site and the back-end administration site are both fully responsive and made to work across a range of desktop and portable devices. The new site offers a clean and stylish design that helps set the company apart from its competition and is search engine optimised for Google to help further promote the company's products and services.

:: 21st July 2014 – Tucker EMS Ltd company website

The site was developed using PHP, MySQL and the Symfony framework, with a bespoke content management system allowing Tucker EMS Ltd to easily manage their own content.

The new website helps Tucker EMS stand out from their competition when tendering from contracts, reinforcing the quality of their brand and the services that they provide.
