We are IceStar Media
Creating custom software and website solutions since 2002..
Our philosophy is simple, we will work with you to design, build, implement and manage an online application that is tailored to your exact business requirements. Whether it's a bespoke database customised to your data processes, an eCommerce system to manage your products and integrate with an EPOS system or a mobile app or website to promote your brand and services, we are the right people to work with.
Our expertise lies in custom code and we develop and support our own core software platform (Osiris) which means we can build you a cloud-based, scalable and future-proof bespoke system that will work exactly the way your company processes need it to. Compared with an off-the-shelf software solution this will give your business the flexibility to incorporate new or specific enhancements with ease without the need to scrap your legacy systems and start again. Data security and disaster recovery processes are at the very core of our application platform giving you complete peace of mind that not only will your custom solution be completely fit for purpose for your business but your all-important data will be robust, secure and backed up at all times.
We provide the right balance of creativity, technical expertise and business knowledge. We are a dynamic, friendly and enthusiastic company and we are committed to our clients and their long-term profitability and growth. Over the years we have harnessed and tailored a wide variety of online technology systems and support services to grow our client’s businesses and increase their profitability – with proven results.
We continue to invest a lot of time with our customers to understand what they really need out of technology systems and work with them to implement and support their online business requirements. We take great pride in the fact that we are professional, and approachable when it comes to running our business and we have a happy client base to back us up.
We’ve designed our entire business model and service range around everything a business needs when they’re starting out or looking to grow their business or data management processes online – ensuring that working with us is always a productive and hassle-free experience. We offer all of our client's full control of their applications and websites, and we are always on hand for support and advice.
From project inception to completion and ongoing support, you will have a dedicated point of contact so you don't have to worry about dealing with different people or call centres each time you call or email. We have also partnered with IT Consultants, Web Designers and Software Developers over the years to assist with their projects where off-the-shelf applications or software systems failed to do what was required.
"Their expertise lies in both their knowledge of IT and their ability to interpret the client’s needs into workable solutions."
We are also very passionate about “giving back” by helping to support local community causes and initiatives. We have volunteered our time and services to manage and update a series of websites for a global female inventors and innovators network until they secured the funding they had applied for. We also managed the stand and represented the network at an invention show in London for 3 days in support of women inventors and innovators worldwide.
We donate to Children's Charities in Lincolnshire and have also supported Shine Charity (formerly known as the Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus - ASBAH), a community of 75,000 individuals, families, friends, and professionals, sharing achievements, challenges and information on living with hydrocephalus, and/or spina bifida, and related issues.
We have worked alongside teams from the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce, GlaxoSmithKline, the Highways Agency, and Hertfordshire County Council on a sustainable travel website. The site is committed to making journeys to Gunnels Wood in Stevenage as easy and hassle-free as possible. It provides visitors with everything they need to know about changing how they travel to work to make it cheaper, healthier and less stressful, as well as less polluting for the environment. The site offers members benefits such as discounted rail travel, bikes, etc. We volunteered our time to work on this project by building the first phase of the website that was launched in 2010 and attending steering groups to discuss the future direction and vision of the initiative.
We frequently volunteer our time or offer reduced rates to a London-based social enterprise that encourages, motivates and inspires black boys and young black men to realise their potential and make viable transitions into adult life.
We also set up, managed and supported a community crowdfunding campaign driven by social media to raise over £5400.00 in 30 days for a local cause.

We work with all types of small and medium-sized businesses, from accountants, financial advisors, waste water treatment specialists, training providers, to charities, estate agents, clothes shops, gift shops, florists, pet shops, schools, and education centres.
