Stewart and Watson taking on technology

Peterhead solicitors, Stewart and Watson, has commissioned an application which allows its clients to access its website no matter where they are or what kind of mobile device they have.

The application was developed for Stewart and Watson by IT specialist Clark Integrated Technologies and it has proved to be such a success that it has been used 2,000 times in just three months.

The application allows users to search for properties on their mobile devices while on the move, and gives customers a quicker and easier tool to access its website.

Clark’s application is different to others because it was created to be used on all different devices, whereas many applications are for iPhone or Android only.

Stewart and Watson’s Practice Manager, Margo Watson, was delighted with the end product and this is reflected in the increase in traffic to the company’s website.

“The critical success of this project can be attributed to our working relationship with Clark and their understanding of our business and what we look to achieve,” she said.

“It was evident from the beginning that the development team had its finger on the pulse and was looking forward to working on this project to deliver a key piece of technology for the firm

“The partners of Stewart & Watson are delighted with the application and the excellent feedback from our visitors, who enjoy the benefits of our mobile website whether at home, work or on the move.

“Our bounce rate - the number of people who visit the homepage and then view other pages within the site rather than leaving the site - continues to be well below industry average, meaning that visitors find what they are looking for.”

Clark Integrated Technologies’ Managing Director, Andrew Stuart, added: “With this application for Stewart and Watson we had to ensure its simplicity and speed, so we focused on ensuring the app was intuitive and responsive even on a slow GPRS mobile data connection.

“Our developers are very dynamic and work with customers’ requirements to develop the right application for their needs, often this is a specific interface to manipulate data from existing systems.”
