We build Business Social Network Sites and Platforms

Eton Digital offers a bespoke, powerful and professional social networking platform with many advantages suitable for businesses and other organisations of all sizes, globally.

Developed in-house from the ground up, our proven business and alumni social network solutions will give your business:

  • A social website that’s genuinely yours – The look and feel, the features and the integration with your current website, if needed, will be highly tailored, as your social network will be made-to-order
  • Innovative features that delight will keep users returning – A site “out of the box” won’t have anything to differentiate itself from the rest. With an EtonDigital bespoke system, you’ll get bespoke features to help you be more successful in achieving your goals whether they are business or community oriented.
  • Full ownership of valuable data - For reasons of legality and dependability, keeping customer data safe and trackable should be a prerequisite for any serious social network. Unlike with many simpler systems, EtonDigital’s social networking solution means that all valuable data collected is yours, safe and secure.
  • A close, long-lasting relationship for future development – We’ll take the time to understand your social network strategy, or collaborate with you to develop one, so that your investment continues to pay dividends. We’ll provide tactical design advice and long term collaboration, will help market your network and can even provide ongoing moderation support should it be required
