Changes to the website

As previously mentioned the background engine to the site has been updated and we are now running on more secure versions of the software.

I have had to address some issues with the CRM system we use, alongside Aaron, but I believe that we have now worked through these. For a user you shouldn't see any differences at all but it is somewhat different under the covers.

The website has moved in the background so you may see a change in the URL bar. The old shortcuts will still work. This needed to happen to address some issues we were having with the CRM system.

If anyone has any comments / suggestions then I'm always happy to receive them, drop me a note at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or contact me here Paul Butler
