Ben Sansom is a web developer who has been programming for years. Based between the towns of Frome, Trowbridge, Bradford on Avon and Westbury , he is mostly working with small businesses and organisations who need a website. Often though, it is more than a website that is delivered. To the public, a website is what they will see. To the customer, there could be a backend database system to manage content, customers, jobs, invoices etc. Please see the recent work section for more details of some of the systems developed.
