Client websites

From the early days of the World Wide Web (1994!). We designed and hosted essentially technical and scientific information on the Web; especially in the life sciences, complementing this with printed publications and newsletters. Since completing the government and commercial contracts concerned, we branchd out as 'Medi@ctiv' designing and hosting websites for a wide range of individuals and organisations. Many of these later were taken over by their owners and managed directly. This natural evolution is only to be expected. Web presence is now a key component of a majority of public and private companies and other organisations and following initial outsourcing, this activity inevitably returns to its owners to manage 'in house'.
