Expansion has been a main factor with Totally. We have hired a number of new staff members which embarrassingly we have not properly introduced to you yet.
Lets start with our first recruit from the beginning of the year Tanguy Martin. Tanguy joined Totally as a Developer and from the beginning had been a key member of the team. Tanguy joined us from Paris, not only is he a superb programmer he also brought with him some Parisian chic.
Following on from that, Antony Cox joined the team as a Senior Developer. From the start Antony has become an integral part of the Totally team. Antony brought with him years of experience and expertise in the field as well as a superb knowledge of accessibility standards.
As the development team grow so does the Design Team. Alan Carabott joined totally as a Senior Designer right "off the boat" from Australia. Alan has many years experience in the digital world. His vision and ideas are fresh and innovative, which is why he fits in so nicely with Totally.
Of course as the development and design team grow, so does the support team. Devshree Karkare recently joined Totally as part of the support team. Devshrees ability to learn and understand quickly has been essential in such a fast paced environment. We look forward to seeing what Devshree has to offer in the future.
As the Totally team have expanded so have the services we offer. The beginning of this year Totally launched its search marketing division Rise Digital. Don't be mistaken, we have been doing search marketing for a number of years now, however, with our client base growing the need to have its own division was essential.
Rise Digital specialises in Search Engine Optimisation, Pay per click advertising, SEO Audits and Conversion Optimisation.
Again with a new division comes new staff. Rui Jiang joined Rise as an SEO Specialist. His passion for all things SEO and strong analytical skills, makes him an integral part of the Rise team.
One of Totallys most exciting accomplishments this year is the development of our open source CMS Pelorous. Pelorous enables users to build websites and offers many powerful web applications. Pelorous's ease of use even allows non technical people to build websites. Already we have a large number of clients using the system from not for profit organisations to large commercial organisations.
That was just a few of our highlights from this year, keep in touch to see what we get up to next year.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at Totally.
