Ixis were approached by Insider Media in the North West to take part in a feature for their magazine. The Verdict is a regular feature that brings experts to a company dealing with a specific business problem or issue.
As a fast growing company with big ambitions to grow rapidly, Ixis recently acquired a fellow North West based Drupal agency, Leafish, and are keen to explore routes to growth and best practise models for expansion.
We were delighted to have the opportunity to take part and let some of the brightest business minds in the North West examine our business model and plans for growth. The panel was drawn from technology businesses and growth and investment houses.
We are delighted to announce that we have recently secured another major public sector contract via the government’s G-Cloud procurement framework.
Ixis have been appointed to provide managed hosting and support services to health and care watchdog the Care Quality Commission. This involves migrating 2 sites, www.cqc.org.uk and www.healthwatch.co.uk to our infrastructure and an ongoing maintenance and support contract post launch.
At Drupalcamp North West it hit me that we don't actually see other Drupal companies as much we should outside of a Drupalcon/camp, so I decided to do something about it.
The first Drupal Social event was Drupal Karting, which saw a few Northern Drupal companies get together on a weekend away from work.
The guys from Livelink were a few seconds a lap quicker than the rest of us, with Jonny Glancy and Richard Lyon leading joint first into the final with Chris Cohen from Tigerfish 3rd and myself and Ashley Wright ending up 4th and 5th.
Are you driven to learn and help people solve problems? Do you enjoy working with others? We are looking for a creative problem solver to join our Drupal support team. The role involves working with a large and diverse portfolio of Drupal clients helping us to deliver exceptional service.
You will be working directly with many of our clients, responding to support tickets and helping them with their web based issues. It's essential you are confident and skilled in working with people both face to face and over the phone, as this role is driven by problem solving, but the essence of it lies in customer service.
We have agreed and completed an acquisition of fellow UK North West based Drupal agency Leafish.
This latest move marks the culmination of a significant 12 months for Ixis, which has been appointed to the UK government’s G-Cloud I and II procurement programmes and secured significant contracts with the British Council and charities VSO and International Alert.
The deal will see Leafish directors Paul Byrne and Dylan Sides join the company as part of the acquisition to expand our Drupal hosting & development skillset with their combined experience of over 16 years dedicated to Drupal.
