Uptick in Web Development; New projects with Harvard, Boston College

Est. Reading Time: 2 minute

Business continues to be hopping and exciting here at Beacon.  We now have 6 clients in the Boston, MA area after winning contracts with high profile clients like Harvard (Center for Education) and Boston College (School of Management).  We also re-signed the Massachusetts Library Information Network to a long-term hosting agreement (MLIN has been with Beacon since 2002)!  Couple this with new projects that includes Tufenkian Carpets (NY, ecommerce), Flirties Earrings (FL, ecommerce), MathMoose (GA, custom app dev), Spouse Got The House (FL, ecommerce), Shelba Johnson Trucking (Grensboro, web dev)  and all the ongoing work from existing clients and… well…(deep breath)… it’s busy!   There’s certainly been an uptick of development projects (ecommerce & content websites using CMS), which is why we are actively looking to hire experienced technology resources – especially experienced software engineers/consultants/project managers that have strong customer-facing consultative skills.

We also have several new, very large digital marketing projects coming in this month, while our existing clients are steadily investing more and more to expand their online reach due to the success of their current web marketing programs.  We recently hired Gus Kroustalis (MBA, Elon) into our web marketing team and we are looking to hire 2 more web marketers in the next 2-6 weeks.

The addition of Michael Swink (BS, Western Carolina) to our sales team has also contributed to the uptick in new work.  He brings a solid, professional sales approach that will certainly produce significant sales and force further growth within our web development, web marketing and web hosting teams.
