The Company

Oaktor Solutions was founded in June 2014 to provide a quality, yet affordable, web design and website consultancy to small businesses across the South West of England.

There are lots of small companies located in England’s Westcountry; many of these do not have the resources necessary to build and maintain their own website. As such there are still lots of businesses without either a web presence, only a social media page, an old tired-looking webpage, or a hastily put together site-builder monstrosity!

Plus, many modern websites are based on popular open-source applications like WordPress; but what many people fail to realise is that these publishing platforms require regular ongoing maintenance to keep them secure, compliant and effective.

Oaktor Solutions can help. I believe that a website should never be a “cut and dried” affair. You can’t just buy a web space, upload your website and forget about it! A website should evolve with your business, and it requires just as much care and attention as you would give to a potential customer or an existing client.

Location

Oaktor Solutions is located in Okehampton on the northern flank of Dartmoor National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

I am quickly able to serve the length and breadth of The Westcountry with easy access to the A30, A38 and A386 roads. Plus with the M5 motorway, and train and air services in Exeter, I can serve the rest of the United Kingdom. But having said all that, many people now prefer the simplicity and convenience of online meetings – and who am I to argue?!
