Localgiving.com is a not for profit organisation that offers a web presence to small to medium-sized Voluntary Community Organisations (VCOs) that operate in local areas across the UK, to enable them to advertise their activities and raise donations. Verachron Consulting was contracted through Solirius Ltd to Localgiving.com around 6 months after the organisation was founded and was tasked with the architecting, designing, developing and testing the system, selecting tools and technologies and defining development processes from scratch.
Ultimately Verachron Consulting developed all aspects of the first versions of the Localgiving.com system, from the public facing web-site, to components required to integrate existing systems used to store VCO data, to components that supported the integration with PayPal and HBOS banking systems necessary to support the donation process. The engagement with Localgiving.com lasted approximately 2 years and ended in early October 2010.

Verachron Consulting were contracted by Solirius Ltd in October 2008 to deliver an integrated web-based system to Localgiving.com as described above. Verachron Consulting were engaged with Solirius Ltd and Localgiving.com until early October 2010.
