GovPress and Helpful Digital acquisition

We recently grew our leading WordPress development, hosting, and support business by taking on a skilled and experienced team and their clients from our friends at Helpful Digital. This means that we doubled our capacity for WordPress work, and are able to offer a wider range of support that’s better tailored to different organisations’ needs.
