We specialise in rich functionality websites for the Recruitment industry. Our clients typically need more than a simple, static site, and really need their site to work for them, automating operational tasks while maintaining a formidable web presence. We have experience with recruiter database applications and linking them with websites to manipulate CVs quickly and efficiently. Combining that knowledge with our skills in driving forward your web presence, it means more quality candidates and more quality leads. Our clients are getting a true benefit; a beautifully crafted design with a wealth of features, delivered on time and on budget, that will save your business time and money.
By combining a thorough interest and unrivalled experience in the sector, we afford our clients an opportunity to get tailored, specific solutions for the wine trade that are unobtainable elsewhere. From promotional sites for leading wine writers, to pay walled subscription sites, we are well positioned to help our clients make a tangible impact on the internet that looks great, and allows the business or concept to perform.
“Our mission is simply web development. We love the technical challenges, and those really strange problems that no-one else can come up with an idea for. Pushing that into a beautiful design is where it starts to get really difficult, but then that’s what we’re all about.”
Complete web design and development projects, project management, technical specifications, organic SEO, social media management, design without development and vice versa, linking to customer database or CRMs, website performance benchmarking and customised hosting/mailserver solutions.
We do not use shared or resold hosting. We operate our own servers in world leading data centres. This gives our users ultimate stability, dynamic flexibility in what we can provide and above all, this protects our clients from less discerning users of the world wide web.

SM Technologies brought a structured methodology to the project, and completed the brief successfully and on budget."
A dynamic organisation for aspiring career driven people.
We developed a client designed website with several facets. Firstly as a brochure for the internship program. Secondly, a multi-staged application process for potential candidates and finally a fully-fledged payment gateway allowing candidates to enrol. A very technical recruitment project with a wealth of needs.
This website was designed from scratch for an interior designer with an impressive brief of the hotel and catering industry. Requirements were client updateable, very impacting colours and a lasting way to show off the work, while being fully mobile optimised.
Collaboration of the UK’s 5 most experienced wine critics.
We were approached with a premade future design for this site, and an older bespoke system to upgrade. We project managed the development of this site into one of the most complex pay-walled wine sites on the web catering for hundreds of members around the world on a daily basis. We rebuilt the bespoke management system, complex tasting note display system and have now added a forum for users too.
Regional specialists in fine and rare objet d’art.
The Nicholson’s Auction House was at a cross roads in their future online. A strong web presence had served them well but we helped them modernise in line with their competitors to bring an easily managed, dynamic website while still providing clearly available information for their punters, and a gateway to their online auctions.
Dynargh Design approached us with their first foray on the internet, with confident thoughts of what they needed but requiring the support to get online. We built an elegant, static brochure site that showcases their fantastic work in various hotels and restaurants around the world. For them, showing their results was most important and the whole site is focussed on projecting that to prospective clients.
Graduate Recruitment services for star individuals and industry leading employers.
City Careers required a big, impressive looking site that grabs attention for candidates and employers alike. They needed an in built blog to update candidates, and an application form that not only auto-sorts outputs to the right employee internally depending on the selections of the candidate, but also implants CVs directly into their database automatically, saving time and money.
The first book from internationally acclaimed wine writer, Neal Martin.
Neal Martin’s book “Pomerol” is magnificently constructed with spectacular photography. We were tasked with creating a website that completely reflects the style of the book. We succeeded in building a site which shows off the beautiful photography and elegant form of design. Sales go through the site using SagePay, which encompasses complex calculations for the various worldwide shipping cost permutations, all of which are automated.
Specialist recruitment services for the top end of the financial industry.
Large recruitment group Wynden Stark approached us with pre-made designs and specifications for their website. It was a complex site that required functionality to allow their employees to post jobs on the site, provide easily searchable vacancies to candidates and also fundamental information for prospective employers looking to work with the group.
