Trading Eye/Dpivision

I never like it when good web design application companies disappear. I’ve used Trading Eye e-commerce software on lots of websites over the past few years. Yes, it had its problems but it was and still is a great platform for building e-commerce websites and from a great UK company. Unfortunately, on 14th Feb 2012 one of my clients received an email informing them that Dpivision was no longer in business but had been taken over by an interested group.

Dpivision also had another web app called Canybill that the fantastic Andy Clarke designed. It turned out Andy had no idea why the Canybill website had disappeared and the status of Dpivision as a company. A brief exchange with Andy on Twitter has lead to a few other customers and users of Dpivisions products contacting me about the situation. I don’t know much, I have just the one email, and I’d be happy to post any updates here from the group that has taken over Trading Eye to update anyone thats interested or wants more information.

So, for the people that have requested more info and for anyone else that stumbles across this post, here’s the email we received in February from Trading Eye.
