Since 2014, our website had been managed by a 3rd-party company called Cite in Leicester. They did a great job of modernising the look and feel of the website, as well as promoting it to search engines like Google.
In early 2019, we made the decision to take back control of the website and to develop it ourselves. As Nic Wright - our in-house IT and Multimedia guru stated..
"The old website was very successfull, and Cite did a great job on it. However, it was becoming increasingly expensive to update the pages, and the underlying technology was becoming somewhat old fashioned, and somewhat slow when people browsed the website.
Over a 3-month period we completely re-wrote the website.
Previously it was a PHP/Wordpress system that relied on everything being stored in a database. Every time you clicked on a page, the system had to visit the database in the background, recover the pictures and words, and then 'build' the web page on the fly before you could view it.
Over the coming weeks and months, we will be uploading new stories about our various conveyor systems, including a "conveyor of the month" feature for our larger and more complex projects
We have left the layout, colours and style virtually untouched, though we may be changing this as well in the near future.
