Case Study - Building a web of public sector opportunities

There’s nothing virtual about the impact public sector work is having on a Fife-based web design and development business thanks to its growing reputation for delivering cost-effective solutions. Adonis Media, established in 2010, is currently on the search for new members to its team thanks to business growth and public sector contracts it has won through PCS.


The innovative web development business now has a core team of 2, but is in need of specialist developers with PHP development skills to bring the latest ideas and technology solutions to its clients.

Adonis Media specialises in Joomla open source content management systems and works with an international client base, with 80 per cent of its business coming from outside of the UK.

Closer to home, its use of PCS has seen the business carve out a reputation within the public sector for developing content management systems and open source websites for the tourism and events sector.

Adonis Media is currently working on a Fife Council project, rebranding and redesigning its Fife Tourism Partnership website, a tourism directory for businesses in Fife, where information is consolidated to help promote what the area has to offer.

In addition, it has delivered the 2014 Commonwealth Games Active Nation site and Outdoor Orkney, an innovative events website where service providers have access to upload information and keep the content updated.

Derek Buntin, managing director for Adonis Media, said: “PCS has had a significant effect on the business – not only does public sector work won through the service, account for 30 per cent of our turnover – it has also made us improve our own business performance and project management systems.

“Adonis has built a reputation for meeting client specifications effectively and efficiently, PCS means we are always aware of what contracts are available and we can be smarter about which ones we tender for and ensure we highlight the added value we can offer.”
