A Week of Change

This week has been another milestone in the growth of Alacrify. As I've mentioned elsewhere on this site, Alacrify has now moved into a new phase of growth and development this summer.

This week Bill Crumbleholme left Alacrify to run his new ArtSeeker company with his wife Diane. This has been a long-standing project that he and I have worked on throughout Bill's time at Alacrify and finally this Summer we reached a point where it could take wings as a separate business.

Bill's longstanding involvement in the arts and his phenomenal commitment to the artistic community in the region now forms the bedrock of this new arts marketing and development business. Alacrify has provided the web-infrastructure to support this business and we will continue to work closely together to support ArtSeeker and make it a great success.

We're also looking forward to having new staff to work for Alacrify. We're in the closing straights with sorting out contracts and terms and conditions for two new developers. I'll introduce them as soon as the ink is dry on the contracts...

We've also had to put in a planning application for a new office to be built to accommodate our new employees and me over the next couple of years. We're waiting with bated breath for the outcome. The parish council will be considering the application in early September.

And on the work front we've been working on a new "Micro CMS" (content management system) to bolt onto our standard brochure websites to allow clients to make small content changes to their own websites without having to call us, or invest in the Simple CMS system that would be inappropriate for their needs. We should be rolling out the first 3 implementations of ths Micro CMS system in the next couple of weeks.

I'll post more information and some screen shots when they're in place...



New Website For Osmington Village Hall

We’re pleased to announce that we have just launched a NEW website for Osmington Village Hall. Osmington Village Hall came to us needing a brand new website as the old one had been taken offline. We built the website from the ground up taking a fresh new approach alongside Osmington Village Hall.

Relaunch Of Weymouth And Portland Info Website

We’re excited to announce that we have relaunched the Weymouth and Portland Information website. The website is an internal project of ours and one that’s needed attention for a while. The main aim of the redesign was to make the website responsive and easier for users to navigate around.

New Website For R-em Therapies

We have just launched a new website for Emma at R-EM Therapies. R-EM Therapies is a new client of Alacrify’s that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with. R-EM came to us needing a new website as the old site was starting to show its age. The old site also wasn’t responsive and was also unsecure which negatively impacted the site's search engine rankings as well as being hard for users to access on their mobiles and tablets.

New Website For Ecs Special Projects

We have just launched a new website for ECS Special Projects. This is another website of ours that we originally built many years ago. The old site stood the test of time and still performed very well in Google searches, but the time had come for the look and feel to be updated in line with more contemporary design approaches.
