The Newbury and District Agricultural Society have engaged Wysi as their 'preferred developer' for the last 4 years. The project is both interesting and challenging because it is in fact two websites in one: the Show site and the Society site. Using the same branding and layouts we were able to provide a seamless transition from one site to the other.
The Berkshire Show is a hugely popular event, being one of the most important county shows in the south of England with visitors and exhibitors travelling from far afield.
The websites (built onto our superb Siteglide platform) are largely database-driven giving the back office team at the Society easy control over events, news, photo gallery and other content.

The Show is a wonderful country event and great day out for all the family.
The Show website is packed with useful information for visitors and exhibitors alike and is easy to update and maintain due to the powerful Web App database functionality we deployed in the design and build.
The websites see a lot of traffic, especially in the lead-up to the annual Show in September, but thanks to the robust hosting provided by Amazon Cloud Services downtime or data transfer are never issues. All Siteglide websites are hosted through Amazon Web Services for security, reliability and server response times.
Sites such as these clearly are seldom static; it is essential that showground and society staff members are able to update, add, and even delete items at will. Because of the powerful Siteglide CMS, support requests from NDAS staff are few and far between.
We love being able to empower business owners and admin staff so they can be far less dependent on their developers if they so wish. For those who prefer us to make changes on their behalf, our premium support packages represent excellent value and the service is second to none.
Unlike so many web agencies we do not contract work out to external resources. All our websites are proudly built in Berkshire by our own in-house designers, developers and project managers. When you need a bit of help it's on hand and in your time zone!
We love working with local companies such as Berkshire Show (NDAS), WebWayOne, Newbury Removals, Berkshire Linen, Berkshire Apartment Services and FuturePro Logistics - to name but a few of our local Berkshire customers.
