About Web of Ideas Limited

Who are we?

We are an IT company based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, with customers throughout the UK and Ireland.
We specialise in business websites and e-commerce websites (online shops). We offer a 'one stop shop' service to design, build and host your business website and/or email.
We also offer a bespoke development service to design and build any website (or other IT system) that you may require. Recent examples include:
  • A website that integrates with the legacy 'Fourth Shift' manufacturing system.
  • A website that communicates securely with web-services supplying gas and electricity prices.
  • A system that monitors changes on other websites to trigger alerts.
  • Development of an automatic licence-key verification system, so purchasers of software can register their product online.
  • Data migration processing - migration of several million items of data from a legacy system to a new system.
  • Development of monitoring and control systems for local councils that utilise sensitive and confidential data.
