why phlite?

What sets us apart from all the other companies out there who offer the same services as we do? We believe difference between us and all the other online agencies is our ability to remain approachable whilst still being very technically skilled.

We have previously worked in tandem with a number of other development companies and whilst being very capable, none of them have the ability to effectively communicate what they are doing to either ourselves or the client.

Our intention is to bridge that gap, offering you the same expert service but leaving you knowing exactly what is happening with your project. We want you to know you can approach us and speak with us whenever you need, without being blinded or confused by technical language.

meet the team

Everything we do at Phlite involves input from the entire team. In order to do what we do, we need a special team of people who can work together to deliver what our clients deserve - a great service. All done in the way that we like to work with our clients.

Our developers are highly skilled and approachable so you can speak directly to them. Our designers are creative and innovative, and can help form and visualise your ideas. The team is backed up by Accounts and IT Support to complete the service.

Each member of the Phlite team brings with them a unique set of skills, and together we believe we can deliver an exceptional service to you and your business. Most importantly we enjoy what we do, and we believe that shows in our work.

our charity work

Life Geta

www.lifegeta.co.uk

Life Geta is a support group based in Hertfordshire, which has been setup to address the emotional effects of suddenly finding yourself in a body that doesn’t do what it used to do, because of an acquired/sudden disability (e.g. head injury or stroke) or diagnosis (e.g. MS or Parkinsons).

Setup by Sue Ross, LifeGeta run regular workshops and discussion groups to offer support and information to people who need it. It has proved a great success, and is growing fast due to the excellent reviews and feedback that Sue receives.

We are pleased to announce that Phlite will be supporting LifeGeta and making regular donations to help them expand and develop. Under Sue’s guidance we have no doubt it will be a great success and offer help to more and more people. We are proud to offer our support.

LCF is the Community Foundation for London. It is one of 57 Community Foundations across the UK and is part of a movement that spans the globe, with more than a 1,000 Community Foundations in 46 countries.

Community Foundations are charities dedicated to strengthening local communities, creating opportunities and tackling issues of disadvantage and exclusion. Community Foundations target grants that make a genuine difference to the lives of local people. They manage funds donated by individuals and organisations, build endowment and act as a link between donors and local needs.

LCF are one of our current clients, and we have built and maintained their websites for quite a while now. When we were first approached we wanted to contribute to the charity in some way, so we decided to offer to host all the LCF websites on our servers at no charge. We thought this money could be better put to use through one of their initiatives and are happy to contribute to their very worthy cause.

Movember @ Phlite

Movember @ Phlite

In order to raise money for mens cancer charities, we formed a team of friends, clients and colleagues and took part in the international event that is Movember. This involves growing a moustache (or Mo) for the month of November, and not shaving it off at any point. Great fun, if a little embarrassing! We setup a live web feed of images and comments to encourage donations we raised just under £500

Mount Snowden

Mount Snowden

When the pupils from Class 12A at Samuel Whitbread Academy approached us asking for sponsorship to climb Mount Snowden, we were more than happy to be involved. Organised by the pupils themselves, and supported by their teachers they arranged and completed the climb raising over £800 in the process - outstanding effort.

Virgin Active Triathlon

A good friend of ours Craig Nicol entering into the Virgin Active London Triathlon in order to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

London Marathon

London Marathon

When we found out our good friend Chris Cripps was going to be running the London Marathon we were keen to offer sponsorship. Chris finished in a hugely impressive 3 hours and 14 minutes - so our donation was very hard earned and deserved! Chris was running for Scotties Little Soldiers – a charity setup to supporting the children of men and women killed whilst serving in the British Armed Forces.

Specially Dedicated
