Listening, building, maintaining.
Whilst we’ve largely worked on our own projects, we do work with a select number of clients and partners, and currently have the capacity to enlarge this aspect of our work.
Of course not all projects start from scratch, but, whether you’re looking to upgrade an existing site or build a brand new one, we’ll be sure to understand what you need to achieve.
We’ll ensure that the site architecture not only works for users but also the Search Engines, maximising your organic visibility as well as conversion rate, be that leads or sales.
What we’ve worked on
We were based in Italy for many years, now we’re split between Scotland (Fife) and Italy, and are keen to work on new projects.
We’ve worked on large accommodation and booking sites, reservation sites, online sales and complicated multi-channel inventory, to individual property sites, all sorts of brochure sites, and a great deal more besides.
Tickitaly is at one end of the scale, with hundreds of thousands of lines of code. It is a very busy and very intricate e-commerce site, a mixture of custom code and a heavily modified install of CS-cart.

What we’re working on
We continue to develop sites for Elected Members of the SNP, together with more local Branch sites.
As Parliamentary Surgeries have necessarily become ‘virtual’ ones, we’ve developed an online booking system that fully integrates with WordPress, allowing constituents to request an online meeting with time-slot management built in. There is full integration with Zoom, allowing on-demand automatic creation of Zoom meetings through their API.
We’ve worked with many API systems over the years, both off-the-shelf and custom ones. We’re currently integrating with a custom system that facilitates software downloads via an in-house licensing server.

Some recent Projects.
Alyn Smith MP.
A from-scratch site based on a custom WordPress theme. A fully-responsive site designed to be largely mobile-first, it has a focus on clean and clear usability.
Properly GDPR compliant in terms of data usage, tracking and cookies, it features Mailchimp Newsletter integration, RSS data feeds and multimedia rich posts.
The Editor login dashboard has been reworked to be simple and clear, with customised user permissions and built-in help menus with tailor-made ‘how to’ videos for Alyn’s team.
An Ecommerce ticketing
site for Italy.
A very complex site that has had to deal with every sort of convoluted product imaginable – on-request products, fixed availability products, product bundles, countless custom fields and databases, the list goes on.
The site features a sophisticated custom-made integration for payments via Stripe, electronic vouchers and downloads, customer reviews, many and varied supplier API integrations, and an incredible amount of custom admin-panel work for dealing with tour guides, venues, suppliers and distributed staff.
If you need any ticketing and event booking functionality at all, we’ll have you covered.
Easy to use WordPress.
Plant Heritage Guernsey.
A relatively simple and quick makeover of an old site, with some complex behind the scenes plumbing in terms of domain registration handover, DNS, email filters and site redirection.
Upon handover, the site maintainer, who had never used WordPress before, watched our how-to videos, and was posting content pieces within hours.
Site features embedded Facebook feed and uses an events plugin to advertise local events. Reservation and payment (PayPal) will likely be added in the future.
Brendan O’Hara MP.
Another SNP site based on a custom WordPress theme but, this time, there was an import from a very large existing WordPress site to be undertaken before anything else. This involved a site clone process, and a long cleanup of underlying database tables, categories and structure.
Properly GDPR compliant in terms of data usage, tracking and cookies, it features Mailchimp Newsletter integration, RSS data feeds, embedded Social Media feeds, and multimedia rich posts.
The Editor login dashboard has been reworked to be simple and clear, with customised user permissions and built-in help menus with tailor-made ‘how to’ videos for Brendan’s team.
As an MP with a large rural constituency, communication with constituents is very important. The nature of my job means I spend a lot of my time in Parliament and it’s vital that I can share information about the work I am doing there. My website is the main platform for engaging with my constituents about my work in the constituency and in Parliament so it’s vital I have a site that’s easy to use and has a reader-friendly format.
With Mat’s help, I have been able to post video, clips of my speeches and any newsworthy items on my website in a matter of minutes. Mat also sees to all the work in the background, so I don’t need to worry about security or backups and if I, or my staff, need any help Mat is always there to provide assistance. His calm, professional manner is reassuring and his on-going support means everything is taken care of.
