ABOUT US

Over 10 Years Experience in Online Business

FORCE 4 COMPUTING - Our Roots

Force 4 Computing was set up in 1995 primarily providing IT consultancy services to clients based in and around London.  In 2002 the company re-focused and started to specialise in all things web-related, initially concentrating on clients based in the south west of England.  Despite this geographic area still being our primary concern, we now have clients across the UK.

 

We manage most of our core services in-house (such as the design, build and maintenance of websites) and make use of a small number of trusted, long standing partners, who can join us on client projects, as required.

Reasons to Choose Us...

So what singles us out compared to, lets face it, the many other web companies that are out there?   Here are a few reasons…

Online Experience

We’ve been involved in delivering web solutions for a long time.  We know what works and which avenues are best avoided!

 

Business Knowledge

With a background in IT Consultancy and Project Management, we have genuine experience is understanding our clients requirements from a business perspective.  We’re not here to play with code… we’re here to produce a great website, designed to meet your online business objectives… and then provide you with timely ongoing support.

 

Excellent Communication

We offer a friendly, professional service that tries to avoid jargon, and provide you with helpful, honest, effective advice.

 

Co-ordinated Approach

Over time we have developed strong relationships with a small number of tried and tested partners.  This enables us to offer our clients a broad range of services including photography, public relations, copywriting and social media marketing, all as part of an integrated solution managed by Force 4 Computing Limited.

 

Long Standing Clients

Many of our clients have been with us for ages!  They tell us they’re very happy with what we do, and with so much competition around, we do our best to keep our clients happy!

OUR TEAM

Mike Hannay

Company Director

 

Mike has been involved in IT since the 1980s.  He taught Economics & IT for ten years, spent a period as an IT contractor and then many years as a senior manager for a London based IT consultancy.

"I enjoy understanding a client's requirements, explaining (without too much jargon) a suggested solution, and then managing the project in a timely manner so that they are delighted with the outcome.  I know this isn't rocket science, but I'm always amazed at how poorly the majority of web companies carry this out.  Thankfully we're different".

Lisa Hanks

Web Content Manager

 

Formerly a legal secretary and with excellent Microsoft skills Lisa retrained in the use of Dreamweaver and moved across into web design.

Lisa joined Force 4 Computing in 2011 and fulfils the role of our Web Content Manager.  She is excellent at maintaining and developing websites, irrespective of the age of the site.  She is also highly skilled in the creation and testing of email campaigns to ensure their ongoing effectiveness.

Mark Hornby

Graphic Designer

 

On the creative side we have Mark Hornby, a Graphic Designer with more than twenty five years experience. Mark has a wide range of experience in both web design and print media, especially concentrating on corporate identity, logo design and photographic manipulation. At Force 4 we always aim to give a personal and unique design service, working closely with the client and developing the best ideas when it comes to graphics, ensuring we get you noticed in the business world and the global market place.

 

Sue Barker

Company Secretary

 

Sue has been the Force 4 Computing company secretary ever since we started back in 1995.

Apart from the usual admin and accountancy tasks, Sue also helps with a variety of web related activities.  These range from graphics work for selected clients, through to voice over recordings for online avatars.  (It's the Scottish accent that's always so well received!)
