Alacrify is 10 Years Old!

On the 20th December Alacrify turned 10! Ten years since transforming Jon's 8 year old business as a sole-trader into a limited company with Bill Crumbleholme.

Alacrify Is 10 Years Old!

The years have brought many changes, to staff, location, clients and expertise.

  • We've employed 10 people, worked with many sub-contractors, provided training to 4 apprentices, and offered work experience a further 4 people.
  • We moved from working at the kitchen table, to a garden office, to lovely offices at the Top 'O Town in Dorchester.
  • Many of our clients have been with us for almost all of the 15 years, with new ones joining us every month; with over 300 currently live websites and new projects in the pipeline for businesses from sole traders to multi-national FTSE companies.
  • Our experience has grown from "simple" HTML sites and graphic design, to ecommerce, Search Engine Optimisation, Google Adwords, Social Media Marketing, Shopify, marketing strategy, print design and production, responsive website design, training, business administration, technical support and media development.

It gives me great joy to run the business, and to be given the opportunity to help to make our clients' businesses even more successful through building their presence online.

It is extraordinary to think of all the people we affect and jobs we support and communities we serve through the sites we build and maintain.

Our long commitment to social, charity and community projects continues to be a key part of our work and passion. These projects have included a credit union, children's charities, disability charity, therapy organisations, a housing society, dementia association, local arts and events groups, national support networks and more.

Finally, Alacrify would be nothing without the team who work here; and our current staff team are brilliant to work with, more kind, thoughtful and committed than you'd dare to hope for. They combine technical skillfulness and understanding with a real commitment to customer service and bring a creativity and enthusiasm to our work that is refreshing and always inspiring. Thank you to them and to everyone who has worked for and with Alacrify in these past 10 years.

We're thrilled to be celebrating this birthday milestone, and are looking forward to continuing to support and serve our clients, new and old, over many more years to come!

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.

New Website For Volunteer Centre Dorset

We have just launched a new website for Volunteer Centre Dorset. We designed and built their original site but over the years more and more content had been added to the site as well as additional functionality. This made the old site, over time, more cluttered and harder to navigate because of the vast amount of information on there.

New Website For Dorchester Community Plays Association - Spinning The Moon

Dorchester Community Plays Association commissioned us to create a brand new website to support their 7th Community play, "Spinning The Moon", which will be performed in 2020.
