More Details


We offer a wide range of services across IT consultancy and web development as well as Property Management. We are happy to work either on site or remotely, whichever suits the project and your needs. We are able to quote on fixed price projects or agree a daily rate for a team of the size that suits your needs. We can also provide a single consultant on a fixed term contract for you to use across various internal projects.

For our property management services, we can take the headache out of your holiday let. We will manage your Airbnb and Home away profiles, handling all guest bookings, managing your calendars and synchronising your various channels so you can site back while we ensure you get maximum bookings and income.

We have project managers with experience in Agile or Waterfall methodologies. We only have experienced team members, so you are guarenteed to have a seasoned PM to take control and run your projects effectively.

Our BAs come from a technical background and can bridge that gap between the developers and the business. We are very comfortable in understanding business processes and mapping these across to a solution.

We have the experience and skillset to manage your product backlog and prioritise the ongoing work. In this fast moving world, it is more important than ever to have a strong product owner who understands your system.

We have a long DMS history stretching back 20 years. We have worked across many different systems including Opentext, Documentum, Sharepoint and Knowledgelake. We are very experienced in defining DMS strategies.

Having worked with some of the largest insurance brokers like Arthur J Gallagher, Willis and Lloyds Register, we have upto date knowledge of the insurance business and the IT systems that support this business.

Web Development is where is all started for Otterdesign and we still deliver today. We can create striking websites and take away the headache of domain registration, hosting setup & email addresses.

Holiday Let management is a new offering from Otterdesign. However, although this is a new offering we still have years of experience from managing our own holiday lets very successfully. We have decided to add this service to our suite of offerings.

Owner & Founder

I spend my time building the business, talking to clients and partners as well as getting my hands dirty as a Technical Product Owner / BA

Richard Otterburn

Owner & Founder

Starting off as a support engineer, I worked my way up through various roles as Developer, Designer, Architect, Manager, PM, BA. This background put me into a unique position of understanding projects both from the business and technical perspective.

This means I fully understand how we turn business requirements into successful systems without being an 'overselling salesman' leaving the developers scratching their heads.

We are a small team built over time with trusted colleagues who have joined the Otterdesign family to create a very experienced solid team.

This gives us the capability to deliver high quality projects whether large or small.

We also have a network of trusted partners who we work with to be able to deliver additional services such as SEO and this also allows us to take on larger projects by having that larger team when needed.
