FARM are a Hampshire based digital agency that develop websites and interactive applications, enhance efficiency, raise brand awareness and increase revenue. From defining the strategy through to deployment and ongoing relationship management, FARM ensure that your digital requirements are translated effectively to meet your commercial objectives.

THE CHALLENGE

At the time FARM were introduced to Wirehive, they had a lot of the common problems which an agency deals with; a large amount of legacy hosting, split over several generations of hardware, hosted with different partners ­­ and not enough time to sort out the problems!

This was affecting FARM’s delivery; they were training developers to manage sites with multiple different hosting configurations, while trying to juggle more complex requirements and were losing control of costs. They needed to rationalise our platform and establish a single, consistent environment for our work to flourish.

THE SOLUTION

In Wirehive they found a flexible partner who understood our needs. Wirehive have a depth of technical expertise, and they worked with FARM to define their requirements. Wirehive’s ability to step outside the usual ‘product­ led’ hosting offerings allowed FARM to build a solution which is tailored to their business.

 

“We would have no hesitation in recommending Wirehive as hosting partners for other businesses. the service has been outstanding throughout, providing us with an approachable and knowledgeable service that has contributed to the success of our company.”
