Focus on industry's leading light

We've just redesigned and rebuilt the Coldharbour Systems website, providing them with an attractive and accessible interface, and a tool to manage their clients effectively online. They have been given complete flexibility over site content and maintenance by using our content management system, Carbon.

An important feature of any rebuild is to rewrite the language – or code – in which the website is written. Computer languages advance at such a pace that websites can end up speaking old-fashioned, clunky and slow dialects within two years of their production. This affects how high the site appears in search engine indexes – more eloquent websites are positioned higher and therefore receive far more exposure. It must also be accessible to as wide range of users as possible in order to meet recommendations from W3C and the UK Government.

We gave Coldharbour Systems the tools to do all this and they seem very happy with the results: 

"Focus have provided a comprehensive consultative approach to the re-design and development of this web site. They have provided credible recommendations and suggestions to help produce what we believe is an extremely high quality and informative site. Excellent technical skills mixed with high standards of project and account management have culminated in a very successful implementation.
We are now able to manage the content and structure of the web site through the use of Focus' Carbon content management system as well as being able to monitor visits and referrals to the site through their Urchin statistics portal.
"

BANES choose Focus New Media

We're really pleased to have been chosen by Bath and North East Somerset Council to design and develop a new web site aimed at promoting positive activities for young people.

We've already started working closely with the project team, including young members of the community who are helping us to create the initial design and architecture of the new site and focus on what's important for the target audience. The site, designed to both promote activities and allow feedback on them to be collected, allows BANES to meet a Government issued directive that forms part of the 'Education and Inspections Act 2006'.

Lisa Lee, Account Manager at FNM adds:
"The internet represents a great medium for helping councils meet the objectives of the Act, it has become central to the lives of teenagers and integrates easily with other new technologies such as emails and SMS text messages."

The new web site is due for launch during the third quarter of 2007.

Next generation Connect2 web site 'live'

As part of the build up to the upcoming Big Lottery Funds "Living Landmarks" programme, we've launched a new web site on behalf of Connect2, a nationwide project managed by Sustrans, the UK's leading sustainable transport charity.

The new web site features a number of additional sections and functionality, including a Photo Gallery which allows the creation and display of albums and photographs by members of the public, a new 'eCards' facility that lets web site visitors send scenic images to their friends and colleagues and 'Ask John': a chance to send a question directly to John Grimshaw, Chief Executive at Sustrans.


Connect2 is one of six projects competing for a single grant of £50 million from The Big Lottery, with the winning project being decided in December 2007 by public vote on national television, and the new site is a core element in generating support and exposure for Connect2.
