Leo White (Hydrant founding Director) setup sister company Hydrant Software Ltd - a growing software development company specialising in online ticketing, booking and leisure sector software. Hydrant Software regularly enters into revenue share and commission arrangements to significantly reduce the upfront cost of developing bespoke solutions.
We also own a 'self build' website service platform known as Shoebox Sites. Developed on the same technology we use for larger sites, Shoebox is a very simple to use and highly affordable option for small brochure and e-commerce sites for startups and small businesses.
All our companies work closely together to provide innovative business solutions through our breadth of experience and service delivery.
