SoftData Internet Ltd and Absolute Creative Marketing Ltd are joining forces to provide a total web solution for Gloucestershire businesses. The businesses now offer the complete web package from strategy and web design through to hosting and ongoing technical support.
Both based in the thriving Westgate area of town and with services that complement each other, the owners of the firms say it is a natural fit which enables both businesses to focus on their core strengths and provide a more comprehensive service for their customers.
SoftData Internet Ltd, based on Westgate Island and Churchdown, is a leading provider of website hosting in Gloucestershire since 1998. With the very best web servers and technical support available, its speciality is providing hosting and technical support to a wide array of Gloucestershire businesses. SoftData is also an expert in SEO, creating business applications such as Taxi Pro Gold, and providing a number of directory websites, great for Search Engine Optimisation.
Absolute Creative Marketing Ltd, based in College Street, specialises in graphic design and website design, printing and marketing. It specialises in working with its clients to design and build websites that look great and, importantly, do the job they are designed to do and provide a return on investment. The technical and ongoing hosting will now be handed over to SoftData.
“We work together on a few projects such as the Westgate Quarter, and this partnership just made perfect sense,” comments Eddie Eldridge, of SoftData. “SoftData specialises in providing first class website hosting and unrivalled technical support to its customers and Absolute is great at designing websites that not only look professional and work well, but are built to the latest website standards and are search engine friendly too.”
“We’re excited about working with SoftData to provide both sets of customers with a better service,” Chris Nyland of Absolute added. “When we looked at our strengths and what we love doing, we could see it was a great fit. We’re both committed to Gloucester and the local market, and now we’re both able concentrate on what we’re best at and enjoy, while our customers end up with the best of both worlds and retain a single point of contact.”
