Impact Technology worked very closely with us throughout the planning process of a new retail website, offering expert advice and opening our eyes to new technology and various digital marketing options.  Andy and Jo kept in regular contact throughout the development stage by providing updates, recommendations and generally being a cut above other web developers that we have worked with in the past. 

Since the launch of our website, Impact Technology have developed a range of bespoke features that have allowed us to control our catalogue of products more effectively, measure the behavior of visitors in more detail and enabling us to implement new features as and when they are released by the OScommerce community.  Impact Technology have been, and continue to be, an absolute joy to work with.
