Who is AccuWeb in Brighton & Hove, eCommerce website, mobile & tablet developers

Personal and responsive ongoing support

Working closely with our clients and their websites on an ongoing basis has been a key factor in both theirs and our success.

Providing a highly personal and responsive service, over the long term, is something we place real value on. We feel this is a very different approach to most other agencies.

Always there to support out clients

Responsive websites built for all devices

We use the latest techniques such as responsive website design (making sure websites work on browsers, tablets, mobiles), and develop in many of the most popular open source content management systems such as Umbraco, NopCommerce, WordPress and Magento.

About Us

Long term relationships over many years, not just one project.

We’ve been creating user friendly, search engine optimised websites since 1999. We continue to work with many clients from these early days today, having helped grow their businesses over many years. We are proud to have taken websites like http://www.housingcare.org from a simple idea, to a market leading website which now attracts over 4.5 million visitors per year.

Who and where?

We work from The Skiff in central Brighton, and the team consists of permanent members together with trusted freelancers we involve based on the needs of a project.

John Dillon John Dillon Strategist, UX, Project Manager, Developer John's been building websites since the 1990's, and despite this has lost none of the passion; he's always learning something new. One thing he has lost in this time mind you is his hair.
James Beer James Beer Lead Designer, UX, Project Manager James is a designer of many things from infographics to complex user interfaces. He’s also a big wave surfer... luckily for us this is only in his imagination.
Anna C Watson Anna C Watson Designer Anna's worked with us for over 10 years, she's got a degree in fine art, and her passion is for ethical and eco-friendly design. Clients always love Anna's work and her approach.
Christos Panayiotou Christos Panayiotou SEO, PPC, Social Media Christos' key skill is in not resting until he has achieved his goals (sometimes to the point of obsession). This is good when it comes to SEO and PPC as it means results.

Which technologies do we use?

Our core background is in bespoke website development using ASP.NET and SQL Server database technologoes; http://www.housingcare.org and http://www.mulberrybush.co.uk are good examples of such sites. Building bespoke systems modelled exactly around a clients business objects has been an approach which has brought us and our clients much success over the years.

In the last few years however, in response to client needs as well as the vast improvement in open source web development platforms, we now routinely develop websites using off the shelf web platforms such as Umbraco, NopCommerce, WordPress or Magento. These days whether a system is ASP.NET or PHP is irrelevant, we have the technical expertise to develop in both. This flexibility allows us to be much more agile, and select exactly the right tool for a given project, rather than being tied to a particular solution and having to make it fit.

Reasons to get in touch with AccuWeb
1

A personal and long term approach.

Big agencies tend to deal in projects, and once a project is finished the client is "out of sight out of mind". Our approach is different, we value long term relationships and as a result most of our clients have been with us for many years.

Moreover you will always deal with the same person, me, both throughout the initial project and then on an ongoing basis. This creates consistency, and consistency leads to successful long term solutions.

2

A more cost effective solution.

Our rates tend to be at least 25% cheaper than larger agencies. We achieve this by utilising partnerships with other companies and freelancers.

Our long term approach also pays dividends as there is no expensive and time consuming switching between different providers and technologies over the years.

Consistency is cost effective and many of our clients have reported saving 40-50% compared to previous companies.

3

Transparent and reactive ongoing support.

Many clients come to us unhappy with their ongoing support (expensive, slow, impersonal). As a result our support is simple and flexible; its pay as you go based on a set rate. Clients never pay for any more or less support than they need.

Being fast and responsive is also key to our service. Requests are usually answered within minutes, and we aim to implement things the same day.

4

A more flexible and diverse service.

Requirements and budgets for projects vary greatly. We carefully match the most suitable resources to the individual project, and help our clients prioritise requirements based on their budget. This ranges from picking the most suitable designer, to selecting the best people to take control of search engine optimisation.

Proscribing a single solution for all clients doesn’t work, so we fit the most suitable resources around the project requirements and budget, not the other way round.
