Matley Software is a company founded by Dominic Sexton to develop software, create and host websites and to provide support services.
Dominic has been working with PCs since the mid-eighties and has a degree in Ocean Electronics from University of Wales, Bangor.
After graduating Dominic worked in the oil industry conducting seismic surveys in many different countries. In 1990 PCs were being introduced to provide technical functions to the survey crews. Occasionally there were problems with the hardware and there were no local computer companies to call for help in most of the places the surveys were conducted.
The first real PC problem facing Dominic was some 150 miles from the nearest road in Libya's Calanscio Sand Sea. It took much reading of technical manuals and experimentation (including a few wrong turns!) before the fault was diagnosed. It then took two weeks to get the replacement part to complete the repair.
In the years that followed Dominic got a reputation for being the person to contact if there were PC problems. The most entertaining assignments were in Nigeria where there was a lot of vandalised equipment after a riot and several unsavoury viruses to deal with - fortunately all on the computers!
The exotic lifestyle of the international commuter is fine for a while but, like many before him, Dominic wanted to return home. He decided that it was time for something different and returned to the UK to set up his own business. After several years as a sole trader, under the name DS Computer Services, Matley Software was born.
Matley is an area of countryside half a mile from the office where Dominic enjoys running, cycling and walking the dog when not interacting with computers.
