Leading UK ecommerce solutions supplier turns to Managed Hosting expert to drive revenue.
When Actinic spotted a gap in the UK market to support SME retailers with multichannel and ecommerce solutions, it turned to DediPower Managed Hosting as a key partner. Now, the new hosting income stream accounts for 10% of Actinic’s entire revenues.
Chris Barling , CEO of Actinic Software Ltd says “Many of our customers have been in retail a long time, but had a burning need to go online. We were able to step in with a one stop shop solution they can rely on. Focusing on the day-to-day needs of our clients has been important way of generating new and sustainable revenue streams. Today, we are hosting between 10-15% of clients sites, so there is still significant opportunity to develop and grow our hosting revenue stream”.
For Actinic, DediPower Managed Hosting was able to deliver a range of solutions tailored specifically for an internet retailer. DediPower provided bespoke server configuration, together with open source & Windows dedicated web hosting options. DediPower’s secure data centre access, close circuit video surveillance, precision air conditioning systems and leading edge environmental controls, coupled with round the clock monitoring and expert customer support, provides the optimum managed hosting environment.
Actinic also joined DediPower’s partner programme, giving access to other value added services, as part of a full service ecommerce capability.
Craig Martin , CEO of DediPower Managed Hosting comments: “Actinic’s revenue success is testimony to the benefits of secure and reliable Managed Hosting, plus the strength of a genuine commercial partnership. By offering a complete solution DediPower has helped fuel Actinic’s brand recognition and reputation as the UK’s top ecommerce provider for SME’s.”
