On 30 November 2017 we held an office opening party with our clients, partners and staff to officially welcome them to our new Edinburgh office, which is approximately twice as large as our old Edinburgh office and offers improved facilities. As this was St. Andrew’s Day, the party had a Scottish theme with matching entertainment; Scottish music and games like ‘Guess the Tartan’ and ‘Guess the Whisky’.
The photos at the bottom of this post, taken by our Development Manager Duncan McLean, give an impression of the unique atmosphere on the night. We had an excellent time and felt honoured to share this moment in our company’s history with so many of our friends and colleagues in digital innovation. Thank you all!...Read more

We’re delighted to announce the release of version 11 of our content management system: Sitekit CMS, which will be rolled out across our hosting platform over the coming weeks.
Sitekit CMS 11 comes packed with exciting new features and improvements.
