Last Saturday all of us here at Ziontech were lucky enough to attend Harry (our web developer) and Riina’s wedding. We all had a lovely day/evening and even the weather was on our side for once! From all of us here at Ziontech, we would like to congratulate Harry and Riina on their marriage, wishing them all the best for the future!
We have recently developed a new website for True Heroes (formerly known as Afghan Heroes). True heroes are a charity that deal specifically with members of the British armed forces and their families that have been affected by the military operations in Afghanistan now and in the future.
The homepage on the new site is one that will constantly be changing. This is because it features lots of news feeds taking the most recent posts from various different places such as; Facebook, Twitter, the events page and the blog. The page will therefore, be kept both current and relevant showing latest events and information. There is also a module dedicated to the fallen heroes showing respect for the most recent unfortunate loss. The site has cycling banner images at the top of each page in which True Heroes have the ability to edit and change themselves.
So after allocating just one day for our offices to be redecorated, a week later and they are just about finished! It was a long week decorating for us here at Ziontech, we all picked up a paintbrush and did our bit. We now have two freshly decorated offices and are back in action. It is safe to say we will all be avoiding DIY for while! Continue reading
This Thursday, we are finally redecorating our new office space! Although we are extremely pleased about the revamp this does mean that we will have to take a bit of time out from our work in order for the changes to take place. Therefore, the office will be closed tomorrow and we will not be returning until after the Easter break.
Our operating hours for the Easter period our as follows:
Closed – 5:30 on Wednesday 27th March
Open – 09:00 on Tuesday 2nd April
Emails will still be monitored over the Easter break so please send any urgent enquiries to: email@example.com
Although the weather may not be what you’d normally expect for Easter weekend, we hope that you can embrace the cold and enjoy it anyway! From all of us here at Ziontech we would like to wish you a Happy Easter!
We have recently produced a new site for Sherborne Girls. The all girls school provides an environment and curriculum for both boarding and day pupils aged 11-18 with a clear expectation that the girls will achieve good academic results alongside significant achievements and enjoyment in their chosen extra curricular activities.
The home page on the Sherborne Girls website features various different news feeds. For example, it includes; a Facebook feed that takes posts directly from the Sherborne Girls Facebook page, a ‘Latest News’ feed taking the most recent articles from the blog and a calendar feed taking current and upcoming events from the calendar. This is effective in providing users with up to date information that will be constantly changing with various items of school news and events, keeping the homepage both current and relevant.

AOK events have recently requested a new design for their Wimbledon Hospitality site. The website offers a range of hospitality facilities that allow you to perfectly match your corporate or personal needs, whilst guaranteeing a fabulous day at the Wimbledon Championships 2013. It provides information about the event and enables you to enquire about their wide range of packages available.
On redesigning the site we have made it responsive so it therefore, provides an acceptable viewing experience tailored to the device it is being viewed on. The new design gives the Wimbledon Hospitality website a fresh look and feel.
After working next door to Mark One Consultants (m1c) for more than 14 years, the time has finally come to say our goodbyes. Mark One are a company that offer IT solutions including; consultancy, networking, internet, technical support and maintenance.
We have been working side by side with m1c since 1998 when we moved into the offices with just a handful of employees each. Over the years, both m1c and ourselves have expanded and now with a combined number of more than 22 members of staff, it’s time that we went our separate ways. Mark One Consultants have packed up their things and moved to another location. Although we are sad to see them leave, this gives us the chance to utilise the extra office space, providing us with the opportunity for future expansion. Continue reading

Here at Ziontech, we thought now would be the perfect time to warn you of the adverse weather conditions heading our way! With strong winds and heavy snow predicted for the south west tomorrow, we are writing this as a quick heads up. Unless you need to go anywhere, it is recommended that you avoid travelling on ice and snow. However, like many of us, if you need to get to work tomorrow, we feel it would be a good idea for you to have a look at our previous blog post for some helpful tips on driving on ice and snow.
If the forecast snow does arrive here tomorrow in Yeovil, then there may be a chance that we are not contactable by phone. However, we will be open for any email enquiries during our normal office hours of 9-5:30. Snow is an inconvenience to many but, it’s not due to be around for long, soon turning to rain near the coast and in the west. Therefore, we hope you have fun, throw a snowball or two and enjoy it while it lasts!
Good news! The world didn’t end in 2012 as predicted so we are back in 2013 to wish you all a very Happy New Year! The fun and games are now over and we are back to our normal operating hours.
Here are some of the things the year 2012 brought us: Continue reading
