Firsty is probably in a unique position. We understand web development and we understand publishing. On the one hand we are an experienced software and web development house with a particular interest in eCommerce and innovation, but on the other we are a member of the IPG, an eBook retailer and a digital services provider that operates exclusively within the publishing sector (trade, education, academic and professional).

Our experiences in both camps continue to feed our knowledge base and help us impart objective and reasoned advice to our clients. We think this is something that sets us apart from other digital consultants, web design agencies, developers and platform providers. We like being independent and we love being part of the IPG, it keeps us at the heart of the industry and constantly challenges us to create real world digital solutions that work for all publishers not just those with the deepest pockets.

Firsty is happy to consult with you on all business challenges relating to your web presence and online sales, distribution, platform and data feeds, marketing and workflows.

Our consultancy services are provided under a straightforward consultancy services agreement. You will not be charged for our initial consultation(s) designed to establish a clear brief and the desired deliverables. Once these are agreed we will prepare a proposal and quote for your approval. This will be submitted with a simple agreement for your signature.

If you would like to talk to Firsty about our consultancy services please contact or alternatively call us on +44 (0)1635 581 185.
