How we started
Datasouth was founded in 1998, based on one very strong business objective:
To build web sites that work!
Since then, that philosophy hasn’t changed and it still stands as a measure to gauge success. We make the time to understand the needs of our clients and tailor the solution to those needs. The result is a web site that works and another satisfied customer.
From concept to creation, Datasouth offer a full service with the necessary skills and manpower to produce new web sites from the initial concept, design and copywriting through to the programming, web hosting and promotion. We also skip the jargon and ensure that projects are completed on time and within budget.
With Datasouth, we don’t just give you a pretty picture. Our solutions help you to grow your business through effective use of design, technology and marketing, whether that means using a web site, email marketing, voice over IP or search engine marketing.
We have a passion for open source software and our team is highly skilled in PHP and MySQL. We don’t believe in reinventing the wheel. The growth of the Internet has meant that there are millions of open source projects that can be tailored to meet your needs and provide a robust solution at a fraction of the price of bespoke software development.
Over the last fourteen years, Datasouth has developed hundreds of web sites and created E-Commerce shops based on many different platforms including Actinic, Intershop, Xcart, OsCommerce and more recently, Magento. We have even developed bespoke booking systems, car rental systems and a complete backend processing and scratch card activation system for a global satellite.
“I have just shopped around for a van, and the U-Drive site was the clearest and easiest to use. My congratulations goes to you and your web designers for producing such a well thought out and functional site.”
“If anyone were to ask me to recommend a web design organisation who are professional and are able to deliver what is required, I would have no hesitation in telling them of our successful experience with Datasouth.”
“The level of knowledge of you and your colleagues has impressed us, but what has made the whole project run so smoothly has been the positive and constructive attitude exhibited through-out, even when unforeseen changes were proposed.”
