Actuate take each brief and combine creative thinking with the best technology to deliver fantastic user experiences and amazing results for your business.

Why Actuate…

A question we get asked is why Actuate? Simple. Actuate means “cause (someone) to act in a particular way; motivate.”, so because we build every Magento website with conversion at the heart we are always pushing visitors down a desired path to convert we felt this represented us the best.

It’s this way of thinking that makes our team perfect for businesses, being able to reach out and engage with their customers means greater conversions, more money being made and growth.

We’ve been working with the Magento platform since 2008 (Yeah, it’s been around for a while). With Magento 1 coming to its end of life in June 2020 we are now working with new and existing clients helping them to replatform to Magento 2. It’s versatility has enabled us to make our clients more money and faster. We develop, support, optimise Magento websites and build strong partnerships with our clients that help to unlock their ambitions.

While our experience keeps us grounded, we are always looking forward, focussed on improvement and growth. We combine traditional and emerging technologies to build the most effective and efficient strategies.
