Jon Woliter and his team have been growing rapidly in recent years, developing and sustaining a healthy external client base, whilst continuing to support the Ashgates Group.
With fee income growing 615% in the last 5 years! From the 1st October, the IT department will operate as a business in its own right, Ashgates IT Ltd, continuing to deliver its services to the Ashgates Group and external clients alike.
Jon has joined the ownership of the new company within the Ashgates group, as will the other Ashgates partners.
This marks a great achievement by Jon, who joined us as a 16-year-old IT Trainee back in 2003. During this time Jon has not only supported us, but he has taken a service from scratch and developed it into a business which has many external clients, as well as a team around him. We are confident that this growth and development will continue, so the new company platform will give this greater credibility and presence in the market.
Ashgates IT Ltd has a great platform to continue to build upon and we wish the new company every success!
We are delighted to have launched the new website for our friends at SV2 - check it out now www.sv2.org.uk.
At the beginning of the project, SV2 set out two key requirements of the new site. Firstly the new site must allow content management by SV2 staff. This would enable them to manage and update the site content themselves whenever they needed to without having to have any specific higher level technical knowledge. SV2 are now benefitting from the ability to manage not only the content on their website but also the time updates are made, in theory they can update their own website 24/7 anywhere in the world.
The second was to incorporate a private staff portal to the site. With over 50 staff & volunteers it is key for all members of the team to stay in close contact. The staff portal allows staff and volunteers alike to stay in the know.
SV2 provide essential services and rely on exterior funding - if you would like to learn more about their work please visit www.sv2.org.uk where you also leave a donation should you wish.
If you have a website requirement - why not get in touch.
This week we are delighted to launch the new Dutton Civils website www.duttoncivils.co.uk
Dutton Civils are the engineering arm of our long term client George Dutton Trading Ltd. Sam Dutton wanted a simple, minimalistic website that showcased their recent projects and gave the civil engineering service a strong online presence.
The new website is completely responsive - allowing it to adjust to any size device or screen.
If you're interested in getting your business online or refreshing your current website, why not get in touch - call Jon Woliter on 01332 380691.
