Compass Digital, Why us?

Compass Digital have assembled a team of experienced designers and developers who bring unique skills and specialisations to each project we undertake. Based in Loughrea, co. Galway we have been providing web site solutions for a growing and geographically diverse client base since 2010.

We build fully-customised web applications that provide for a range of needs, such as event management, bilingual websites, private/ cloud-based systems, e-commerce as well as brochure and portfolio and mobile-responsive sites.

Our clients are from the government, semi-state, academic or private sectors, including blue chip corporate.

Client sectors include banking, manufacturing, academic, tourism, health, professional services, genealogy.

Our clients are based in Ireland, the UK, Denmark and New Zealand.

We prefer the Drupal CMS framework because of its superior scalability, high quality code and complementary extensions. As well as its impressive range of adaptability.
However we do develop within the Wordpress platform when client preference and/ or need requires.

  • Establishing a website was new territory for us and we were guided seamlessly through the process by Compass Digital. Throughout the process the different stages were outlined, timelines provided and dialogue was constant to ensure we were happy. Compass Digital did not miss any deadlines and also facilitated changes and delays from our side. All aspects of dealing with Compass Digital were productive, pleasant and professional and we achieved the web presence we desired.

  • Compass Digital initialised my company's website to give my business a well needed online presence. The website looked and performed well, with a marked increase in business coming in the next few months. They also gave me tutorials on how to use wordpress, which is invaluable, as a business owner to be able to control and change content when you need. Finally they oversaw a revamp of the website, updated the design, updated SEO and so on. The new website has already seen a marked increase in hits.
