ShareSoc's IT Upgrade Project

Monday, May 30 2016 by

As many Stockopedia readers will know, ShareSoc is the UK's leading not-for-profit organisation representing the interests of UK Individual Shareholders. We are most grateful for Stockpedia's support, since our launch in 2011 and are happy to endorse the good work that the Stockopedia team do.

Since our launch, most of the work entailed in ShareSoc's day-today running has been done by a group of unpaid volunteers, of which I am one. One of the essential tasks has been creating & developing our website which is, of course, our primary means of communicating with the world. To date, this website has largely been Roger Lawson's creation, created & maintained within the limits that such individual work can achieve.

We have recognised for some time that though our current website is admirable as a voluntary effort, we need to move beyond that to offer the high quality service to our members that we wish to provide. For over a year now we have been investigating options for that move forward and now have a clear plan. However, to fully implement that plan we need to raise funds to pay for the professional service we need to create a professional quality site.

Thanks to the generous donations received, we now have sufficient funds to start work on the next phase of ShareSoc’s IT upgrade project. Special “thank you”s go to Leon Boros and to Ideagen Plc , who have both made major contributions to the project. I’d also like to thank all the other contributors of smaller donations.

To proceed  with later project phases delivering more useful features for members, we will however, need to raise substantially more so, if you’d like to help, we would warmly welcome your donation here: http://www.sharesoc.org/donations-it-project.html. You can also find further details about the project by clicking the link towards the bottom of that page.

So, I’m raring to go with the next phase of the project, which will involve the professional design and creation of a modern, mobile-friendly, website. The objective is to make our content much more attractive, accessible and maintainable. I’m still looking for volunteers to beta test the new site, so if you’d like a “sneak peek” before the new site goes public, please drop me a line at mark.bentley "at" sharesoc.org (replace "at" with @).
