Cool Tortoise Web Development

So…Why Cool Tortoise?

Good question!

Well, we could go on about how we are thorough and measured in all we do and that’s what wins the race….but it’s not that clever.

We have offices in the UK and New Zealand. Where’s the half way point between the two?

Look it up when you get a moment…..

(Hint – it’s a tiny place in the Pacific!)

What’s The Story?

The directors at Cool Tortoise have over 70 years combined experience in software development, web development, ecommerce management and training. In 2015 we decided to pool this vast experience and create Cool Tortoise.

Creating and marketing a website is a minefield, especially for small, local businesses. Costly mistakes can easily be made which can have a huge impact on the success of an online campaign. But it does not have to be like this. We created Cool Tortoise to overcome the stress of creating and running your website and social media pages. We believe that local businesses can succeed online by focussing their efforts where it counts….locally.

Did we mention that we have offices in the UK and New Zealand? Why’s that then? Well, two of the directors are brother and sister who just happen to live at opposite sides of the world. The good thing is that this means you have access to your project day and night.

What We Do…

  • Web Development 50% 50%
  • Ecommerce Management 20% 20%

Web Development, Ecommerce Development & Management

Gordon cut his teeth creating websites for bands in the 1990s. He was a professional musician for 12 years until he saw sense and got a proper job – well, sort of…



Project Management, Branding, Template Management

Lorraine runs a tight ship. She is the project management queen….but she does have a weakness for bucks fizz and beaujolais, dahling! Now where’s that timesheet?!



Hosting, Database Management, Platform Integration

Colin is the wise man of the business who knows all there is to know about software development and database management. Oh, and he likes racing cars up hills.



SEO, Social Media, Analytics Integration & Reporting

Andy lives and breathes website optimisation. Sad really. However, he does see himself as a bit of a budding Jeff Beck or Jimi Hendrix. We’re not too sure that his neighbours agree though…
