Our name VCSWEB is an acronym of our former VideoCam Services business name, established in 1991. VCSWEB is owned and operated by Rod Gasson in the Southern Suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia.
A Brief History
From 1991 through to August 10, 2005, as ‘VideoCam Services’ we offered VCR Repair and Video Capture and other related services. In 1997, we published “The Internet for Commodore C64/128 Users“, a 300-page manual that enjoyed strong international sales on the Web. We’ve witnessed the benefits of having a presence on the Web and know others can use this advantage too.
In 1997, we began offering Web Design and the following year added Web Hosting to our list of services. In early 1999, we added to the Internet side of our services, offering Dial-in and telnet accounts so others can access the Internet. We no longer offer dial-up services, concentrating instead on our hosting, design and domain name services.
A Little Different
Our working hours are generally from about 3am to 3pm (although our starting times can change). This schedule gives us the best of both worlds - the ability to work in the wee hours of the morning and still be able to schedule meetings during the daytime. You’re more likely to find us enjoying a nice wine at home than out and about. Although it hurts us to use the word, we are ‘mature’ (at least in terms of age). A few years ago a potential client called and asked our age - she specifically wanted someone who was over 30 yrs old. She’s been our client ever since!
Rod has experience in computer networking, setting up and maintaining server software. Rod has had more than 20 years experience in the electronics field and is qualified in Audio, RF, TV, VCR, Digital techniques, and Camcorder repairs. On the computing side of things. With almost 2 decades working with computers, he also attained an Advanced Diploma in Network Security and Certificates IV in IT - Networking, Programming as well as Training and Assessment.
Rod is the sole developer of the very popular Ozpost module that works with many online shopping cart systems to allow Australian merchants to offer real-time shipping quotes to their customers.
We are located in the Southern Suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia.
VCSWEB has been a major part of our business for the last few years. We are unable to put into words how fantastic Rod has been in working on many aspects of our website, and would not be where we are today without him. He must be the hardest working man in IT. In the online world, it’s so important to trust the people you work with, and we fully trust the team at VCSWEB as they have a very high level of knowledge and integrity. We feel confident in knowing that they are a part of our team now too. Sharona & Andy
