Our Beginnings

Xtensive Ltd was founded in 2008 as a small web design and IT Company.

Initially started by Colin Thomas when redundancy loomed from the Automobile Association where he had worked for 20 years as a Lead Software Developer and latterly as Development Team Leader.

Colin's wide knowledge of IT covers areas such as programming, web design, ecommerce, business analysis, IT Consultancy, PC hardware and software support, social media marketing and SEO.

In 2013, we expanded to our current office location in the St James Business Centre in Paisley and the addition of Liam McNally, a web design graduate boosted the Xtensive offering. Liam has now been promoted to Senior Web Designer and runs many of our web design projects.

In 2016, we added another web designer to our ranks, Scott Ramsay, who has quickly become an asset to the Xtensive team.

Our Skills

The 4 main areas that we specialise in are Web Design, eCommerce, Social Media and Internet Marketing, although various other areas of IT complete our portfolio of services.

Web design has been carried out by our staff since the early 90’s and we as a company have a vast knowledge of internet technologies. Our experience has carried us down the route of CMS (content management systems) in particular using the industry strength Joomla platform for the bulk of our web design on the Linux platform.

In 2010, we partnered with Big Commerce to provide low cost, high quality and fully featured eCommerce solutions. This partnership and partnerships with payment providers has built up and allowed us to create some very secure solid and highly successful e-commerce solutions for our clients.

The other area of particular specialisation is Internet Marketing, for which we are qualified Internet Marketing Professionals. This is an ever expanding area of business, as our clients have the need to gain as high a position on Google and the other search engines as possible organically. We provide optimisation techniques that have been hard learned and are highly effective. We also provide guidance on pay-per-click advertising and provide quality Analytics data to our clients on a weekly basis. We are constantly investing in this area, as we consider Internet Marketing to be a vital part of giving our clients the edge and we have a proven track record of success.

Our Clients

We have clients in almost every business sector, including Retail, Finance, Industrial, Manufacturing, Leisure, Sport, Catering, Entertainment and Transport. Our client base also spans 5 countries, with clients in the UK, Spain, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Namibia.

We very much see our relationship with Clients as one of a Technical Partnership. Client’s business’ will evolve with time, and Xtensive will be on hand to enhance their web offering – ensuring that we utilise the most appropriate software tools and components for our clients solutions that will give maximum return for their investment.
