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.
Ixis was commissioned to create a website, TES Growing Ambitions, for the leading digital education business TSL Education, to support teachers helping young people discover the right career path.
At a time when the delivery of careers advice in schools is changing, TES Growing Ambitions will be a dedicated portal for the teaching profession to access a relevant and diverse collection of multimedia teaching resources for free, as well as being able to share information and best practice with peers and the wider professional careers community.
We kicked off the new year with expansion in our web development team to meet the never ending increase in Drupal demand.
During the last 12 months we were turning down work because the team was fully booked every month with client projects, and 2010 has already brought a wave of new clients for both the development and hosting services, so the team expansion could not come at a better time.
The content management platform Drupal powers 100% of Ixis' projects, and has seen a huge increase in adoption from small to International organisations across the world. This growing buzz has lead to a staggering increase in Drupal specific work leads on a daily basis for us here at Ixis IT.
