Built of a collective mix of creative, strategic and technical experts, iCentric have come a long way from their early days in 2003 where they consisted of a small design and web development team.
In just 15 years they have succeeded in expanding their business to contain an array of digital marketing service offerings – SEO, paid advertising management, email marketing, hosting, video production and service level agreements etc. – and have taken their own original Fivesuite CMS (the first of its kind) to go on and launch their latest award winning software iCentric in 2012.
Combined, it easy to see how this intuitive web design company managed to win Barclays Innovation award in 2014. They are one of the first companies to embrace the simplicity that CMS affords customers.
