Who we are and what we do?
Origunally based in Stornoway in the Isle of Lewis, and now operating from central Glasgow, Webridean Web Services is a small local agency providing web site development and ecommerce services to businesses, groups and individuals accross Scotland and beyond.
We specialise in creating web sites using open source software. This allows us to keep our prices low for three distinct reasons:
- We don't need to develop each new site from scratch as we build them on existing software platforms.
- We don't need to pay for expensive commercial software, so we don't need to pass this cost on to our customers.
- We work from a home studio, which keeps our overheads very low.
As a result, you can have the web site you need for much less than you might expect.
For example, this site was built using our favourite open source Content Management System, Joomla. This means that anyone, with just a minimum of computer experience and a little training, could add pages of new content, add and change images, and alter or extend any of the text on the site. Not only was the site inexpensive to build, but these savings extend throughout its life.
We have over 25 years of continuous internet experience. The last 15 of those have included huge amounts of web site design & development work, including all aspects of ecommerce. Consequently, we really know what we are doing. This means we are in a great position to help you achieve your goals online.
