We’re not a website agency. We’re a website development and software house.
The difference is in our business model – one that isn’t based on retainer relationships, small print, or lock in clauses. It’s this key difference that’s made us a key digital partner for our clients.
Our approach to your website development is what we refer to as the Dapth mixed agile methodology. A mouthful clearly explained through the services we live by: Discover, Create, Develop, and Support. We ensure your website is built to the correct specifications - but not over engineered - and delivered in line with your budget and scope.

Websites that are developed well perform well. The term ‘clean code’ should be discussed more. Why is that? Well, when you outsource – or rely on plugins heavily – you will end up with a confusing, jumbled mix of a website that limps to the finish line. Sure, you can point your fingers at the plugins that are making your website slow and (potentially) exposing you to data breaches.
However, the real issue with outsourcing is the implementation of code. That’s because outsourcing makes it difficult for another developer to take over the project, there's a lack of control over site access, user data and there's (potentially) intellectual property disputes. At Dapth, we begin the conversation with understanding your pain points and what led you to seeking website development in the first place. We then work to clearly articulate your long-term goals, how you would scale your business, and whether you are looking for SEO and SEM. It’s at this point that we can clearly advise a direction and costings.
Put simply, anyone who gives you a price for a website without a discovery process is about as helpful as a mechanic who gives you the cost without first checking the car. We have worked with a wide range of clients over the years, including sole traders with a limited budget, mining companies with unlimited budgets, local councils with big budgets and NFPs with medium budgets.
In today's digital landscape, user experience (UX) has never been more important in the world of web development. A pretty website alone just doesn’t cut the mustard – it must also provide a seamless, intuitive experience for visitors. Gone are the days when a website was merely an online brochure! At Dapth, we understand the significance of UX and its impact on your long-term success. Our local team work collaboratively to create websites that not only visually captivate - but engage and guide users through the desired actions.
Through careful attention to user interface (UI) design, information architecture, and navigation, we ensure that every element of your website is thoughtfully crafted to optimise both accessibility and usability. From intuitive menu structures to clear call-to-action buttons, we strive to make your website a joy to explore for every visitor.
Our user experience focused approach means that we uncover pain points and identify opportunities for improvement. These insights enable us to make data-driven decisions throughout the web development process, resulting in a website that resonates with your target audience. By investing in a website that prioritises user experience, you not only enhance customer satisfaction but also differentiate yourself from competitors. A well-designed and user-friendly website builds trust and credibility, leaving a lasting impression on visitors encouraging them to return.
So, whether you're starting from scratch or looking to revamp your existing website, trust Dapth to revolutionise your online presence with a focus on exceptional user experience. Contact us today to discuss your website development needs, and let's embark on a journey to create a website that not only looks impressive but also provides a seamless, delightful experience for your users.
That old chestnut! We would rather show you the sites we have built and tell you the cost (and why).
No, this isn’t an escape clause, it’s calling out the smoke screen that is a 'one size fits all' view of website design and development offerings - because no two websites are ever the same. We’re just being super transparent about our prices and explaining why.
Will we be as cheap as an oversees or outsourced provider? No.
Will we be better, more available, and local? Absolutely.
With the issues and potential risks that come with overseas development houses, such as falling short of agreed deliverables, long term we’ll prove to be a more cost-effective option.
Of course, there are always factors that influence your project cost, such as:
We can align your project to a set budget (stripping back things that aren’t needed) or scope out and create a brief to achieve all your wishlist items.
Do you really want to know an answer to that question?
Or, would you prefer to know which CMS is best for your individual requirements, load times, personalisation, or our personal favourite: what is the cheapest way to build a website?
The answer to your question will change if you can be more specific. And, if you simply don’t know which CMS to use, then let us give you the information that allows you to make the best decision for you.
Don’t let someone else tell you what the best CMS is to use for your website. Make an informed decision aligned with your requirements instead.
The Dapth methodology has been crafted from years of website development projects, large and small.
We guide clients through discovery, design, development, training, and launch. To start your website development project, you need to clearly articulate your goals, the users, and key functional requirements.
From this, a brief can be completed and agreed to – this will give a digital designer the ability to create a wireframe or prototype. Once a wireframe is signed off, a fully detailed list of deliverables (scope) can be defined, and we can continue to align the best technology (CMS) to deliver your wireframe and functional requirements.
Our team are all based in our Perth, WA office. They can be accessed by our clients remotely. We assign the right developer in our team to your project (based on skill and experience). They can act as an extension of your client’s digital teams, assigned to projects, working agile or waterfall as required. We can discuss your unique requirements and working model requirements to see how we can help you best.
