We produce websites according to customized requirements. We have developed, installed, tested, and rejected numerous publishing systems to find our favorites over the years.
There are remarkably many abbreviations, such as HTML, CSS, PHP, XML, and SQL. There will also be new ones almost daily, while others disappear.
Since we have solid technical expertise, our customers do not have to worry about all these letter combinations and acronyms because we can explain, inform and assist in choosing the right solution for their particular project. This provides security for our customers and allows them to feel confident about having a solution that they can grow with for several years.
Understanding of the Web and the Internet at large
When working with the internet and developing for the web, it is vital to understand the basics and how the web is connected. Republic has been working with the internet since 1994, and we have a genuine understanding of how the technology works and have been involved as it developed.
We develop structured websites based on web standards that are user-friendly for all people, including those with reduced vision or other disabilities. The information is semantically marked, which provides a stable base to stand on.
Publishing systems to our liking
In most cases, the result is a website based on Content Management Systems (CMS) such as Craft, Statamic or ExpressionEngine. The reason is that they are flexible, secure and highly appreciated among our customers.
A very big advantage of all these systems is that they are also extendable with plugins. It allows us to customize functionality in the same interface that is used to edit the content of the site. The combination of a solid publishing system with all the basic functionality and the possibility to extend with customer-specific plugins is really good.

The CMS we use is flexible, secure, and much appreciated by our customers.
Building a fully customized system
There is much to gain from using a publishing system in many cases. However, in some cases, you need to tailor almost the entire application after specific scenarios, and then it is better to spend time building precisely the parts needed.
We are good at developing customized systems that can be used on intranets or over the web when the standard solutions are insufficient. In most cases, a special solution can save many hours of work in a reasonably short time because it solves precisely the problem the customer has.
We solve specific problems for our customers when the solution can’t be found with an off-the-shelf product.
Laundry times on the web
A good example of a system built from the ground up is Tvättstugetid. It is a small system that allows tenants to book and keep track of their laundry hours via the web or mobile.
The service solves a specific problem and solves it well! The service has been in operation for a couple of years, and currently, many housing associations and property owners have found it. They use the service for the laundry, common rooms, and overnight apartments.
Container management system for KappAhl
A few years ago, KappAhl came to us and talked about how their everyday life looks like. There are trucks with containers to be emptied, moved and filled with clothes before the next delivery.
To get a better overview and opportunity for even better planning, we built a web-based solution that gives KappAhl, their traffic managers and truck drivers a better everyday life. Via the web or with the help of SMS you can now move containers and plan deliveries and all involved see an updated view of the area.
The system helps KappAhl to keep containers organized by, among other things, SMS to minimize unnecessary moving costs.
