IPC Exeter needed to replace their out of date website with a new, more dynamic website which better reflected their business. Using the vibrant colour scheme from their printed material, Phototropic designed an exciting new website which could be edited in-house using SetSeed.

We developed an interactive system to display information on IPC Exeter's many language courses, and then connected this with a SetSeed contact form to enable their visitors to easily choose and enrol on a specific course. Because SetSeed supported this already, IPC Exeter didn't need to pay for any custom development on the software to enable this feature. What's more, all the content is fully editable within SetSeed so IPC Exeter can maintain their annual list of courses themselves.

This is what Ben Thorne from IPC Exeter said about us:

I wanted to completely overhaul our website and had been mulling this over for too long.

I approached some companies who wanted to know what the turnover of my company was before quoting, which I found odd and inappropriate. Ben Vallack was recommended to me by an excellent graphic designer friend Dan Loveday (Wireeater), and I liked his proposal in terms of cost and concept.

Ben basically built the framework of the site based on my very simple design brief and then trained me to use his excellent Setseed content management system. What I liked so much about Ben's approach was that, in direct contrast to other agencies I had approached, he demystified the whole web design process.

Having provided me with the training and the tools, Ben was then there to respond to all of my questions very promptly and efficiently - for example sending me very straightforward video tutorials to assist me in learning the CMS. Ben provides on-going support because he has confidence in his system and knows that 'on-going support' really means answering the occasional e-mail from me.

After years of agonising over how I wanted my site to look and work, Ben has assisted me in building exactly the site I wanted in a couple of months. I am delighted with the site and would have no hesitation in recommending Ben Vallack and Phototropic to potential clients.
