We are real programmers & developers, we won't fob you off with a bland WIX, Shopify or WordPress website where your business has to fit around those systems, instead, we will hand build a custom system that is designed to fit around your business.

About Us

Our History

Our parent company, AWE Media was founded by Scottish I.T. & web veteran Ken McMonigle who has been operating a web service company since 1997. We survived the dot com burst of the late 90’s and continued adapting to an industry that was very volatile and hard to predict.

Over the years the brand has changed as well as our base of operation. Starting out in Scotland, UK we have been providing web services to small and large businesses alike for over 20 years.

After a move to England in the late 90’s the company continued its operations expanding our client range into Europe and North America. We enjoyed spells operating from other countries such as Ireland and America.

In 2016 we made the biggest move in our history permanently leaving the UK for Australia where we continued operating from Central Queensland. In 2018 we relocated south to Stanthorpe and then a bit North to Warwick in 2021, where we continue to help local businesses throughout the entire Southern Downs region and beyond.

Over the past 20 years, we have broken a few records and world firsts, some of these include:

  • We created the world's first real time online bookings service for hair and beauty salons via the TONI&GUY group.
  • In 1999 we built the world's first dedicated video games auction service, BID4AGAME.
  • We created the first ever link between the then popular Online Store system, OSCommerce and eBasda accounting systems.

plus a few more...

Over the years we have not only seen but have been a part of shaping, how the internet has transformed modern life and how business had to evolve as a result.

In 2021 we are still going strong and are delighted to have some of the same clients still that we had back in the early days – Our longest client has been with us for nearly 20 years!
