New at Streets Ahead
Rebecca Jordan, Nutritional Therapist
We’re welcoming Rebecca to Streets Ahead. We were asked to help Rebecca update her Nutritional Therapy website, by urgently taking on the website hosting and management as her existing host was too slow responding to her requests. They messed up a DNS update, failed to give the correct FTP access to her site and even registered her domain name in their company name. In around a day, we moved her site, did her updates and fixed the domain name. We also converted the site to Perch, so that she can now keep the site updated herself.

Some new customers
Just in time for Christmas 2014, we completed a shop for Jessie Jones Jewellery. The whole site and shop is built with Perch CMS. Since then, we’ve worked on a relaunch of FOXY Lady Insurance. Take a look at the redesigned site and register for a free quote. Finally, in the last few days ago, we’ve taken over the hosting and sorted out the domain name registration of an existing site for East Preston Village Preschool. Always happy to help out our village local organisations! And now back to the work queued for the rest of this month …

We've started 2015 with an update
We are kicking off 2015 with some website updates – our own! Rarely do we have the time, but we’ve updated and enhanced several pages, tidied up a bit (an early spring clean) and we’ve now added a blog. Lots more pages are now under Perch control, allowing us to update the site more frequently. And the Blog and FAQ areas are done with Perch too.

We just completed her new website and she is delighted with the result. www.rosemaryhufton-textileartist.com – is an interactive portfolio of her work that you can explore and enjoy. The site was designed by Tracey Dowling of Kingfisher Design, and brought to life by Streets Ahead.

FOXY Lady Drivers improves life for female car buyers
We recently completed some major enhancements and redesigns to FOXY Choice for the FOXY Lady Drivers’ Club. As well as simplifying the searching, www.foxychoice.com now has a new FOXY Lady Approved network. This is for genuinely female friendly used car dealers and franchised new car dealerships, and is in addition to the existing garage and accident repairer networks already established.

Crawley CVS (behind the scenes)
This is a tale about the ease and satisfaction of using Perch!
We were already using Perch in some places on the site (and 20+ other sites we’ve recently built). With no significant code changes needed, we’ve now replaced all the old site administration. The site works just like it did before and their visitors don’t know anything has changed. Now the website owner can update far more of the site, all in one place, and with a few bonus features we’ve now given them. One happy customer (they love Perch) – and how great is Perch for retro-fitting CMS functionality. See for yourself at www.grabaperch.com.
