We hope everyone had a good break and end to 2013. We're excited to announce that 2014 is going to bring some rather radical changes to DigiPest.
We have quietly provided many services to a select number of clients ever since we started back in 2011 (mainly because we already provided them with the services, and they wanted to continue to use us).
The big news for 2014 is that we are now making details of those public.
They include the little-known fact that, as well as being passionate about your computer security, we also have a wide range of additional experience to help you solve your current (and future) business challenges.
Web Application Troubleshooting
Are you having a problem with your WordPress installation that you haven't been able to solve on your own (or that your web designer can't get to the bottom of)?
If so, why not let us have a crack at it for you. We have in-depth knowledge of WordPress and many other common web applications, and can very often find and fix the issues that have eluded other people. If nothing else, it often helps to have a fresh pair of eyes take a look at the issue.
Custom Application Development
Does your business have a mass of data that you find it difficult to access and/or keep up-to-date?
Have you looked at existing software designed to solve your problems and found it doesn't quite meet your requirements?
If the answer to either of these is yes, you may benefit from having a custom application developed that enables you to access and control the data in the exact way you want, and it doesn't have to be as expensive as you may fear.
We will often develop a solution using tools that are Open Source, and therefore carry no licensing fees or other continual costs you may not be in a position to commit to.
If you already have a collection of bespoke software, we will (if possible) develop any new solutions using the technologies you already have the infrastructure to support, to save you having to maintain different environments.
Web Server Management
Is your website hosted on an un-managed server (where the hosting company expects you to perform normal server maintenance tasks)?
Many small businesses host their websites on such servers because they are the cheapest way to get the power and flexibility of a dedicated server without the overheads of purchasing physical hardware.
Many small businesses also don't have the skills in-house to perform the routine maintenance necessary to keep your server and the software that runs on it working correctly.
This can lead to anything from performance issues to significant security vulnerabilities going un-patched, leading to your website and/or server being compromised, damaging your company's reputation, and costing hundreds (sometimes thousands) of pounds to correct.
Given our security focus (which we are still maintaining) we can act as the technical contacts and management team for your web hosting, ensuring that software updates are installed as quickly as possible, and that the performance of your server doesn't degrade as the load on it increases.
So Much More...
Our experience in the technology industry covers a lot more than we could reasonably expect to fit into a blog post.
We haven't even touched on our Network Design and Installation expertise, or our knowledge of Voice over IP telephony, Digital Media Distribution/Encoding, Windows Server Management, Wireless Networking, and many, many other areas.
In short, if you are currently struggling with a technology issue, give us a call or drop us a message via our contact form, and we may be able to provide you with a solution.
Over the next few weeks, the DigiPest website will be undergoing some major changes, including a complete re-design.
Once the website has been updated, there will be a follow-up post to this one, with details of how to locate more information on our services, and a collection of special offers that we will be running for a short period of time.
Our security services aren't going away - in fact, they're going to be at the core of all of the other services we're now offering (and there's an exciting new security service on the way, for those of you who want the power and peace of mind of a dedicated security department, without the need to hire the staff directly).
