We provide web development services and consultancy to the creative industry, hand writing code that works across browsers and mobile devices and is compliant to the latest standards. We have a close attention to detail and a passion for communicating with clarity. Above all, we believe in working hard, being honest and delivering what we promise.
We love Open Source software, and platforms like Wordpress and Magento mean content management is ever more intuitive. Whether you're running a website, online store or blog it's never been easier to stay in control of your site content.
Whether you're starting a new online venture or looking to release the revenue potential of your existing website, we deliver shopping experiences that will scale with your business' success.
From data capture and manipulation to collaborative working, web applications are bespoke web solutions that can bring the benefits of cloud computing to your every day tasks.
We provide the templates for you to create and send beautiful email campaigns and the tools to track the results. We create fantastic online page turners to create an impression whether you're selling a luxury property or designer clothing.
We understand the web can be a confusing place. That's why all our services are backed up with our unique plain speaking consultancy and support every step of the way.
We've boiled down the principles of what we do into a list of services, but don't worry if you are confused by any of these terms; it's our job to break down your requirements, propose a solution and explain the deliverables.
We build sites of all shapes and sizes; some are content managed, powered by popular software such as Wordpress, and some are fully featured e-commerce stores built on powerful platforms like Magento.
If you're after social media expertise, we build innovative Facebook apps and social media tools. If your needs are a little more bespoke, we develop web applications to solve every day problems.
Or perhaps you're looking for a way to communicate with your customers or employees? We provide e-marketing solutions to help you do just that.
We've helped organisations and individuals take their first steps onto the web and supported established international brands in their social media campaigns. As we often work alongside in-house teams, we unfortunately can't show you all of our exciting work but we'd love to talk you through more of the experience we've had. We're just a phone call or an email away, and you'll find our details below.

We're very proud of our attention to detail, but it's more than just being conscientious; we're fortunate enough to work with some very creative people, and we want to do every pixel justice. So when SO Creative relaunched their online presence, they turned to Benchmark to deliver a site as individual as their agency. The result is hands down one of the most eye catching websites we've ever worked on; a true example of design and development harmony.
