IT Consultancy, Software and Web Development
Based in Shrewsbury in Shropshire, MEGTEK are a small company specialising in IT consultancy, software design and development, and website design and development.
Founded in 2005 by Oxford University graduate Ruth Mills , MEGTEK have worked on a wide range of consultancy projects, including public sector IT projects (Ministry of Justice, Driving Standards Agency and HM Revenue & Customs), educational software, sports management software and a number of projects for a multinational accountancy and business services company.
With our Salon Alchemy product, we have gained a reputation within the hair and beauty industry for affordable and quality web design, and hope to build on this by completing work on salon management software and appointment booking functionality, which will provide optional online booking and appointment management for our salon website clients. We also offer web design for other businesses in addition to salons and therapists.
Our Salon Guinea Pig website, which has been running since the summer of 2008, is designed to link hair and beauty trainees, students and salon professionals who need volunteers to practice hair and beauty treatments on with members of the public who are interested in volunteering for those treatments. Salon Guinea Pig is completely free to use, and is paid for by sponsors and advertising.
MEGTEK prefer an ethical, sustainable and environmentally sound approach to doing business. We work from home wherever possible, minimising the amount of travel we have to do, and thus keeping carbon emissions to a minimum. We are LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender), Pagan, disability, autistic spectrum and alternative lifestyle friendly.
