    Terrabase Web-app on iPhone Home Screen

    Progressive Web Apps

  • Work for every user, regardless of browser choice because they’re built with progressive enhancement as a core tenet
  • Fit any form factor: desktop, mobile, tablet, or forms yet to emerge
  • Service workers allow work offline, or on low quality networks
  • Feel like an app to the user with app-style interactions and navigation
  • Always up-to-date thanks to the service worker update process
  • Served via HTTPS to prevent snooping and ensure content hasn’t been tampered with
  • Are identifiable as “applications” thanks to W3C manifests and service worker registration scope allowing search engines to find them
  • Make re-engagement easy through features like push notifications
  • Allow users to “keep” apps they find most useful on their home screen without the hassle of an app store
  • Easily shared via a URL and do not require complex installation

    Ruby on Rails Logo

    Ruby on Rails

  • The process of RoR programming is faster than with other frameworks and languages because of the object-oriented nature of Ruby and the huge collection of open source code developed by the Rails community.
  • Rails conventions makes it easier for developers to move between Rails projects, as each project follows the same structure and coding practices.
  • Rails is good for rapid application development (RAD) allowing changes to be made easily by taking advantage of the modular approach.
  • Ruby code is very readable and almost self-documenting meaning there is not the same need to stick hook-and-claw to a pre-written specification.
  • Rails has developed a strong focus on automatic testing so any changes can be checked across the whole system as soon as they are made
  • Rails and most of its libraries are open source, so there are no licensing costs, and a lively community is constantly adding to the framework

Unleash Strategic Vision by Taking Control of Data

The Terrabase approach is all about shifting the confusion from data, moving it out of inflexible spreadsheet based systems by engineering data and interfaces to work together - in the cloud and in the office. By eliminating information inertia and simplifying data interrogation, Terrabase bespoke software enables its users - Government, Corporate and SME organisations around the country - to accelerate decision-making and create added opportunities for mission fulfilment.

Terrabase Engineered Systems

The performance designed into every Terrabase engineered system helps organisations reduce risks and focus their delivery. These systems deploy easily, integrate seamlessly with existing IT environments, and provide the kind of user experience that helps managers and their staff do what they need to do faster, better and more efficiently.


Terrabase systems can be hosted in the cloud by leading Internet Service Providers trusted by Government organisations around Europe to deliver excellent performance and security, or can be hosted internally within organisational systems. Hosting in the cloud simplifies delivery, and adds to flexibility and availability.

Beyond Spreadsheets

Terrabase systems are designed to revolutionise workflow by taking the power inherent in complex, home-grown spreadsheets, taking that expertise and distributing it to the future.

They act to remove intrinsic risk from layers of calculations and data manipulation producing a robust presentation layer with repeatable and explainable results. This in turn produces a secure and valuable data- infrastructure as an organisational asset to be passed on to tomorrow's stakeholders.


Terrabase bespoke software solutions look to create simplicity by gathering vital tools into a single intuitive concept with secure zones of access. This in turn simplifies structures and models that control the data and ultimately deliver the clear management overviews required for confident decision-making. The systems are designed to be consistent in style and process. This is to help drive forward the organisation ethos and take advantage of previously learned skills through proven workflows and expertise. The Terrabase analysis process involves identifying mission-critical risks and bringing them out for resolution. Terrabase bespoke software is software created to move forward in environments of continual improvement and change, software that stays ahead of the curve, literally re-conceptualising the workplace.

Need to Know

The systems work to store staff expertise within a single organisational knowledge system facilitating the seamless transfer of roles as people migrate. Training and education is built into the solutions by aiming to all but eliminate learning curves and unnecessary manual re-processing, or 'excise'. Excise is identified and cut-out to create a productive and flow-based experience.

Future Systems

A Terrabase engineered solution is designed to take advice from today's workflow patterns, today's experience. This is to create the opportunities to incorporate tomorrow's innovation and tomorrow's value generating methodologies. Our mission is to embrace new ways of excelling and to keep spearheading multiple sectors. To create systems that can be mobilised to parallel workflows across the organisation and where possible applied to sister organisations.
