About us

Mission and Ethos

Our Founder, Derek Mansfield, ran his first e-business in 1992.

Back then, when he demonstrated his web based translation project management system linking 40 countries and 3000 translators using a laptop and mobile phone connection, few people understood what was happening. And with a transfer rate of 14.4kb he was lucky it worked. But that was over twenty five years ago; thankfully communications and applications are both faster and more stable today.

From those pioneering days the company has expanded and gained experience in both e-marketing and web development. By 1999 the dotcom boom was well underway; finding experienced web developers and designers was increasingly difficult and expensive. To overcome this it was decided to locate development and design offshore.

After a worldwide analysis of available skills, programming standards and cultural and business attitudes the Company selected Ukraine as the location of choice.

Today our main creative, editorial and development offices are located in central Kyiv with liaison and disaster recovery in Staines, near Heathrow, London. Since 2017 the company has been branding it's products under the name bigeasy|one™.

The company employs 18 full time staff with access to additional approved specialists; day to day management is web based with video-conferencing the norm.
