Felines funded from Castlegate’s community pot
Director and cat lover Andy Reading adopted his furry friend from York Cats Protection in 2013. He put forward the nomination after the delays in their adoption centre and the flooding of their charity store across the road from us on Walmgate. We’re pleased to be able to contribute to the feeding, treatment of housing of unwanted cats until they can be re-homed.
2016 so far: new clients, new sites, better support
2016 has seen Castlegate IT busier than ever—and we’re only half way through! We have taken on lots of new clients and completed lots of new projects for our existing clients, from small businesses to major national organisations. Not content to rest on our laurels, we have continued to grow and change as a company to keep offering the best possible service for everyone we work with.
Castlegate’s Community Fund supports York’s Floods Appeal
Castlegate IT’s offices are located on Walmgate, so the nomination and subsequent win for York Flood Appeal is no surprise. We’ve seen first hand the devastating impact to York and its community.
Castlegate IT’s 2015 in review
2015 has been an important year for Castlegate IT. We have taken on new staff, moved to a new office, and added an impressive range of projects to our portfolio. Our clients now include local government, museums, national education organisations, and numerous businesses from around York and beyond. With so many sites going live, we can’t possibly feature them all, but here are a few highlights from this year.
Get new customers through your digital door with Google AdWords
Google AdWords is an easy way to draw in new visitors by paying for online advertising. We offer Google AdWords account management, helping you to save time and get the best out of your budget. We plan and create your campaigns, determining which formats best meet your needs, and building up your account to get the best return.
Mobile-friendly responsive design and development
Smartphones and tablets are now the primary means of accessing the internet. They are inexpensive, easy to use, and they are always to hand. Making your website work well on mobile has become a necessity.
Anyone who’s come in to see us in the last year will probably notice that things were getting a little …cosy. So we’ve made the move to a new office. We’re out of the basement that’s functioned as our subterranean nest whilst we’ve been growing, and we’re up in a new, sunlight-filled first-floor office on Walmgate.
Opening up data
Over the past few months we’ve been working with the City of York Council Business Intelligence Hub on a new Open Data platform for York. This website will act as a repository for publicly available data on almost any aspect of life in York. Initially the data is being supplied by the Council’s own internal business systems, but other public-sector organisations will be coming on board. The system could become the clearinghouse for anyone in York who wants to open their datasets to the public.
