A personal message from our Managing Director

Hi. Thanks for stopping by our website.  I hope you will find our range of services interesting and will consider contacting us to discuss your next project.

We are a small team of web designers, software developers and digital marketers based on the border between England and Wales in the historic market town of Monmouth.  I founded aento in 2007 after many years of running other technology consultancy businesses providing software development services to companies worldwide.  My goal in founding aento was, alongside continuing to support or larger clients, to bring the same high quality of web design, software development and digital services expected and enjoyed by the largest of companies to even the smallest of local businesses.

Being based outside of a major city, but in a thriving rural town with unrivalled communication links, enables us to keep our costs down and pass those cost savings onto our clients without sacrificing the range or quality of services we offer.

In our time we have been privileged to work with both small, local, family businesses and multi-national corporations.   For all clients, we offer a personal, bespoke, affordable, high quality service that focuses on individual business requirements and goals.  We are passionate about web design and software development and obsessed with providing websites, software solutions and digital services that help our clients' businesses grow and transform business efficiency.  Our normal is to go above and beyond in working with our clients.

Although we are a small team, we have a big skillset and extensive experience of working across multiple sectors.  Our expertise extends beyond web design and software development and into business process design, quality systems and regulatory compliance.  This all means that we can quickly gain an in-depth understanding of our client's business and requirements and offer the very best tailored solutions that provide a rapid return on investment.

We invest heavily in the latest technology and tools and keep up with latest industry trends and requirements.  We ensure that the websites and software solutions we build for clients are maintained and kept up to date.

I'd like to emphasize that no client or project is too small for us.  As a small business ourselves, we recognise that smaller businesses have limited budgets and need to work with suppliers who make every single penny of investment count.   Our greatest satisfaction is helping even the smallest businesses develop and grow.  You may be small now but your ambitions may be big and we'd like to help make those ambitions be realised.

Of course, we love our larger clients too.  For larger projects, we have a network of highly trusted designers, developers, marketers and other professionals that we can call upon to augment our core team.  The key here being to augment.  Projects are always designed, run and controlled through our core team.

To re-state an old cliché, we are large enough to cope but small enough to care.

So, if you're a small business looking for an outstanding website to drive business growth or an organisation looking for a highly functional company intranet or line of business software application, please get in touch.  I'd love to discuss your project with you.

All the best.
