About Proven Web

We specialise in creating and maintaining affordable websites that are proven to work for organisations. But what sets us apart?


North East based and focused on value

Proven Web was established in 2014 by Andrew Ace. Having 20 years experience in the IT industry managing various web and software projects for large and small organisations, Andrew recognised the need for smaller businesses to have better, more functional websites, with tools and features found on larger sites, but without the high cost of bespoke development projects.

We create high quality websites with top-end functionality, built efficiently using plugins & modules to keep development costs down.

Our Approach

If what you need has been done before, we won't re-invent the wheel. We'll use our ready made plugins & modules to build a site tailored to your business and proven to work, without the big development costs.

Our Team

We have a great team of talented designers and developers, mostly working remotely on a freelance basis, enabling us to keep our costs down and provide even better value for our customers.


Three reasons to choose Proven Web

Just a few reasons why you should consider Proven Web when selecting a web developer:

Great ideas and advice

We don't sit back and expect you to tell us what your site needs. We work closely with you, giving the benefit of our experience, and suggesting suitable layouts, calls-to-action, and features that will get you results.

Easy control of your site

All our sites are very simple to manage yourself, ensuring the site is always kept fresh and fully up to date. Our CMS is based on the leading platform, WordPress, and includes Proven Web's own enhancements to make it even simpler to use.

Support and maintenance

We won't abandon you after the site is built! We'll ensure your WordPress version and plugins are kept fully up to date, online, and working at all times. And we're here to help whenever you need us, for technical support, advice and guidance.

My Healthcare Recruit

I was absolutely delighted with the website developed for My Healthcare Recruit. I approached Proven Web (amongst others) when I received a recommendation from someone who works with a lot of new businesses.

After I reached out, Andy got back to me quickly and I was immediately struck by how much time he spent with me to understand exactly what I was looking for. We had an initial consultation and then he took the time to develop a concept for me so we both knew what we were working towards.

I knew what I wanted the website to convey and feel like, but I wasn’t sure of the best way to achieve it from a user experience perspective.

Andy was great at coming up with ideas, but also offering ways to tweak my suggestions to make features more intuitive and user friendly.

One of the things I have been happiest is about is that often once a final “product” has been delivered, providers often become less responsive and unwilling to provide after-care. Although I haven’t had any real problems since the website went live, questions have cropped up and Andy has been in touch quickly to provide answers or advice.

On a personal level Andy came across as genuine and approachable. I would recommend Proven Web to other businesses wholeheartedly.

SEO, Website Content and Online Marketing

While we stick to the technical side, we partner with Exaltis to provide Search Engine Optimisation services. Your fantastic website isn’t much use if nobody can find it, so Exaltis can work with you to identify appropriate keywords for your target market, optimise the text content on pages throughout your site, and maximise your SEO to get you noticed online. We recommend speaking to Exaltis to see how they can help ensure your site generates the best possible results.
