Welcome to Synapcea

Synapcea is a Kingsbridge Web Design, Information Technology, Computer Support and Training Service.  I’ve been providing IT Consultancy, web design and data management software solutions in London since the early 90s, latterly moving to Devon in 2010. My Webdesign Service is based in Kingsbridge but I can visit you and offer Computer Training or Support anywhere in the South Hams or even login remotely to work on your PC.  I primarily work with software rather than “fixing” hardware faults.

Web Design

I recommend using WordPress for the vast majority of sites.  It’s a free and open source blogging tool and a content management system that’s end user friendly, secure and reliable.  It’s one of the most widely used Website management tools on the web used by an estimated  60 million websites.

Training And Support

1 to 1 computer Training on your PC at your home or office.  PCs, Macs, iPads. Microsoft Office

Bespoke Software Solutions

Microsoft Access database and Excel Spreadsheet data manipulation and reporting solutions built to do what you want them to.

My Experience

I’ve been employed and worked in varied environments ranging from the Voluntary Housing Sector to Retail Management and Web Management positions for a national specialist sports retailer, so I’m at home understanding the needs of working with smaller businesses and or Not For Profit organisations and larger sized size commercial entities. I’ve worked as a Consultant in my own right with Sole traders, Small Businesses, Colleges, Counseling Organisations and a national Social Think Tank to provide effective solutions to their information management and web presence requirements.

Client’s Needs

I understand the need to listen to a Client’s requirements, that a for a small business any investment in information technology be it a database or a website is not undertaken lightly. It’s important to get it right first time, making it user friendly and easy to update.  If it’s too hard to update, you won’t want to keep it current and fresh and help interest new visitors to your site.

Specialisms

Services

I specialise in user friendly and Client update-able websites, Microsoft Access driven database development and Microsoft Excel data manipulation solutions.  I also deliver graphic design work for web and print using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Fireworks.

Training

I also offer bespoke 1:1 training to individuals or groups of Clients in pretty much any aspect of Computer use.  This may be as simple as setting up a structured folder system to make finding documents easier and making sure a back up solution is in place, or it could be setting up a Mail Merge to allow targeted marketing communications.

Open Source Software

As an advocate of Open source software, I thought it was only right that I should use it on my own website.  This site is created using WordPpress, the cost of this software is nothing, it’s free.  In fact if you want a copy, you can download it for nothing from here.  However, like anything worthwhile, it does have a learning path which I’ve already trodden so you don’t have to.

If I create your site with Open Source software, you pay me for my time, knowledge, experience and nothing more, no software to buy.  If I look at your information management needs, I won’t push for a costly bespoke software solution if I know there’s a perfectly serviceable application already available.  I’ll lay out your options and you can choose.
