Why we work with ActiveIS

Gerard and his team are honest, easy to work with and  understand the non-profit world. Their technical knowledge is second to none, but they have a lovely way of ‘translating’  themselves into plain English and a lovely manner with our clients, who offer us excellent  feedback on their work and approach.

Sitecore is an excellent web and digital CMS solution, and our partnership with ActiveIS allows us to bring all the benefit of this system to our clients who need a dynamic solution.
