Where did Tayfusion spring from?
The idea of Tayfusion was formed a long time ago. Mark, the current development lead, fell in love with web design back in 1996, while visiting friends. He watched them create a simple website for their small business. Mark said:
Errr... Would you mind if I gave that a shot?
Within a few days 'Tradetek' had a new website, built using Flash. By the standards of those early web days the site had all the bells, and a few whistles. Mark was working for Tesco as a developer at that time.
Not long after that, Mark had his first client. We are proud to say that the client stayed with Tayfusion until just recently. Right up to the moment they decided to retire and sell the business. Looking after and keeping hold of our clients was important from the beginning.
The team that eventually formed Tayfusion developed for Tesco for many years, designing and progressing their internal systems and some of the customer facing services such as Clubcard. Coming from such ‘good stock’ it was time to plan ahead.
Tayfusion was formed in 1999.
Who are we really?
You’ll find us a wholly focused and dedicated bunch; incredibly passionate about our work. We work ceaselessly to develop good relationships with our clients, both professionally and personally.
This is the first official update to our website for a while. When it was launched we asked a client to take a look. Their feedback was:
You need to add something about yourself...
You're missing a trick, you guys are unique you need to sell that, there are real benefits working with you and people should be made aware of how different you are...
Ceo & Founder: Salesmap
Tayfusion's help, support and advice in building both our website and software application has been absolutely invaluable. Their approach was very inventive, challenging when needed, creative throughout and always extremely responsive. They offer a unique and most welcome combination of skills, expertise and experience. And then there is the sense of humour - still you can't have it all ways!! An excellent team who are a pleasure to work with.
IT Manager: Tayside Contracts
We have been customers of TayFusion for over ten years and have always found their team to provide the highest standards of service whilst being easy to deal with. They understand our business, priorities and objectives very well. We see them as an extension to our own IT team, adding skills such as web and database system design in a most cost effective manner. Managing a very small IT team I have to rely heavily on partners in key areas to provide expert support particularly in the areas of website and Intranet design. Over the last 10 years I have worked with Mark and the team at TayFusion I have found them consistently helpful, knowledgeable and always willing to help answer and develop some of my wilder requests. I particularly value their friendliness and professionalism and I always feel comfortable in picking up the phone and bouncing a few ideas around with them as I would if they were a colleague. Their support allows me to focus on supporting my colleagues and concentrate on well... the boring stuff frankly...
I would like to state how much the new website that Tayfusion designed has meant to me. One week ago my business was almost failing, then the new website turned things around. Those who saw it immediately bought my services and so many firm orders have come in that I am already on my way to my first million. Because of this my wife has decided not to leave me after all and, at long last, we got the kids out of the foster home. I say at long last as they are now 27 and 26 respectively. This has all cheered me up so much that my long-standing severe acne problem has cleared itself, my halitosis has all but disappeared and – baffling to medical science – after 30 years of trying I am now able to walk unaided. Perhaps the biggest surprise came this week, when I discovered that the kids had come up with an amendment to Einstein's Theory of Relativity, an amendment which not only will transform accepted thinking on the origins of the universe but will also enable the total eradication of world poverty within one month. Don’t even think about it – if you want to get ahead, get a website from Tayfusion.

Just a short note of thanks for setting up our new web-site. Now we have put photos on the system it is really working for us. I appreciate all the time and patience spent with us explaining the various functions and updating procedures that we can use. Having used Tayfusion services before on the development of the P.S.Properties web site - which I thought was great for our requirements at that time - I feel this new site is a definite step forward and your after sales support to carry out slight amendments to meet our changing needs is invaluable. Many thanks for your continued support and best wishes for the future
Manager: A1 Kilt Hire
We have worked with Tayfusion on a number of projects and we are always delighted with their work. Their depth knowledge and skills are excellent and they are always on hand with technical advice which is one of the main reasons we will look to keep working with them in the future. Tayfusion has helped us grow our business and for that reason they would always get our personal and business recommendation
Owner: Beat Generator
We needed a professional looking website to promote all our forthcoming gigs at Beat Generator Live and turned to Tayfusion for inspiration and direction. They not only delivered the goods (and some....) but also a full functioning newsletter and customer database which allows us to target our customers directly with all the latest gig and venue news on a regular basis. Yeah, they are geeks alright, the best kind :)
Association of Scottish Business Women
I've loved working with Tayfusion even without their website. They are real, helpful and tell you (or is that just me?) like it is – this is very important to me. They are super quick to respond, explain things in a language you (I) can understand, from lay terms to the educated and MOST of all, nothing is too much bother. They are great at understanding my needs and helping me out. When I heard they had redeveloped their website I thought I would take a look. It looks and feels exactly like them, and I wish them all the success they deserve :)
How are we different?
Well, doesn't everyone just say that? Yes, they do.
We really are different and our clients are the first to agree. We feel that being flexible and chilled is the best way to get things done right. We don't live in an ivory tower (there are not many of them in Dundee, but we are quite partial to them if you've got one). Quite simply, we are human beings... From planet Earth.
Ask our clients. If and when we meet you, we will actively promote that you speak to them.
It's important for us to be dynamic, agile, up-front and personal. Plain speaking engenders trust. We are big on trust. We like to be relied upon.
We really know what we are doing
And we love doing it.
So, if you are interested in the prospect of working together, then feel free to contact us about your needs.
We are an Ethical Company
Ethical? How can a web company describe themselves as ethical? Bear with us:
We’re not big enough yet to assist with saving whales or planting rainforests. With your help that day will come. For now, we look after our clients as well as our own people. We show respect to our providers. We build relationships and do business in a fair and transparent way. Benefitting all our stakeholders.
Yes, we are a business and wouldn’t exist without creating revenue. But we are careful about how we do that. We strive to be fair and offer value as well as quality. In everything we do.
It really is a win-win situation; hackneyed often but always true with us. When we develop something for you we give you the Tayfusion guarantee: whatever we create, it has to work. You’ll never have to put your hand in your pocket if anything breaks through no fault of your own.
Our pricing? We’re neither the cheapest nor the most expensive. With Tayfusion you pay for the jobs and projects we carry out for you. Our bespoke invoice system will clearly show you that. Nothing to see there that smacks of a holiday home in the Bahamas.
It's a trust thing as we said. We want to be on your team and we want you to succeed. Still not convinced? Please ask our clients.
