About Me

Mark SmithsonI specialise in working with and supporting small businesses, particularly within the Legal and professional services sectors. I also specialise in web site development and marketing for holiday cottage rental properties. I've worked in IT within different industries for over 20 years; over 11 years as the Head of IT for a Leeds based mid tier Legal firm and 3 years for a Chartered Surveyor's practice.

Backing up my extensive IT and business management experience I am PRINCE2 Practitioner & Foundation Certified. PRINCE2 is a project management methodology for all types of projects and focuses on the business aspects, such as the business case, project organisation, plans, controls, quality and risk. PRINCE2 is the internationally recognised standard for project management methodologies.

I am also certified in Microsoft client, server and network technologies. I'm an expert user of Microsoft Office and have the skills required to enable it to be customised to help streamline its usage. I have strong experience with website and Intranet development, from legal website requirements through to retail eCommerce websites. With my legal sector background I have excellent knowledge and experience of the software requirements law firms need, from Laserforms to Case Management systems to KPI dashboards.

I'm used to working within the tighter budgets that smaller firms often operate within and relish the challenge of finding the best fit solution for each organisation and situation. I have a strong business background coupled with a strong grasp of what IT is needed within a business for it to succeed, grow and flourish.

I have a solid broad bank of experience across a number of projects and installations including server and network installations, accounts and practice management system migrations, digital dictation, web site development, copy cost recovery systems and business moves to name a few.

I can offer you a 'fresh' view on your IT systems and how they could be developed to improve and push your business forward. I am used to working within tight budget constraints and thrive on the need to be imaginative and creative with solutions.

Why not talk to me to see how I can help your business? It's good to talk!

    Mark Smithson created our web site for our holiday cottage business. From word of mouth recommendation I looked at other sites that he has designed and was happy with the quality of the product. The service that we received from Mark was responsive from the initial contact through design and planning of the web site. He came to see us to discuss our design requirements and quickly developed a web page which met all our needs. The product which he has produced for us is high quality and cost effective for ourselves running a small business. Mark has responded promptly to any enquiries or updates that have had to be made in a user friendly way. I am no tech expert but even I have grasped the instructions he has forwarded! Comments that I have received from customers have all been very positive regarding how easy the web site is to navigate and use. I would recommend the service Mark provides, we have been very happy with the web site and level of customer service.
