Paul Shipley Business people just want to get on with running their company - not deciphering a lot of IT jargon. I have been working with business clients to deliver their IT vision for nearly thirty years and have seen just about everything.

Let me take care of your IT issues.

Speak to me about a no obligation fixed price quote.



"Websites are a great way to attract new customers and to keep existing customers loyal, which can only have a positive effect on cashflow." - The Age, 2012Aug14

"More than a decade after the emergence of the e-commerce industry almost half of Australian small-and medium-sized businesses still do not have a website" - The Age, 2012Mar22

These days if you do not have an online presence, then your business does not exist and your customers will go elsewhere. Let me create a modern, stylish website to your business requirements.

Using the latest responsive design technologies your website will look just as good regardless of the devices your customers are using. Many websites are hard to use when displayed on smart phones and tablets. If your website is hard to use on these smaller screen devices then your customers will move on to a site they can use.

Some of the areas I can assist you with are:

  • WordPress, Joomla! content management systems
  • Responsive web design
  • Google integration
  • Website and Email hosting
  • Social media integration, such as Facebook, Twiter, Yelp

Social Media

"Any business where they are trying to build a strong customer rapport, create brand loyalty and customer dialogue, tend to be the businesses that find social media particular useful" - The Age, 2012Aug13

Of course anyone that matters is on social media now (just ask some kids!). Having a social media presence can be vital for engaging with your customers. Many businesses struggle with this, trying to get the balance right. A well thought out, integrated approach can make the difference between 'cool' and 'try hard'.

I can assist you to create Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Yelp, etc. profiles and integrate these with your website.

"These companies know that mobile apps are not toys. These are tools. When it comes to mobile, we’re just getting started. I believe that the mobile application industry is about to explode over the next few years. And it will be fuelled by millions of small and medium sized companies who will soon realize that having a mobile application is as necessary as having a phone number and a website to do business." - Forbes, 2012Jul05

Mobile and web apps offer features that are designed to help SMBs attract and retain customers. Apps like loyalty coupon systems, mobile food ordering, shopping carts, push notifications, and so on, level the playing field allowing SMBs to compete with much larger enterpries. Customers will flock to the best and most convenient service, and having a great application is part of this.


"Thousands of Australian websites are vulnerable to being taken over by hackers" - The Age, 2011Jun17

If you already have a website (or are planning one) you need to consider who will be looking after it. Once your website is online, how do you ensure that it is available and working properly? Business people do not want to have to worry about these things – you just want to get on with running your business.

I can look after your website administration to ensure:

  • That your website is available
  • The software is updated to prevent security issues
  • There are regular backups (including offsite copies)
  • Domain registration and web hosting subscriptions are current

PC & Networks

Confused by all the jargon when you 'just want it to work'? Whether it be the best laptop to buy or which software package to install, I can advise on the best solution for your needs.

I can advise on:

  • Desktops, Laptops
  • PC, Mac
  • Windows, Mac OSX, Linux
  • Microsoft Office, Open Office, Google Apps
  • Security (Anti Virus, Firewall)
  • Free and Open Source software
  • Modems, Routers, Networks
