Founders Scott Jeter and Craig Bailey bring 55 combined years of experience to new venture

SHELBURNE, VT― Scott Jeter of Essex Junction and Craig Bailey of Shelburne have launched web development company Root802.

"We might be one of Vermont's newest web shops, but our roots run deep," says Bailey, who's had a hand in building websites for Vermont businesses and organizations going back to 1994. "If you've been doing this work since before the turn-of-the-century, you're consider a pioneer," he jokes. 

Likewise, Jeter's experience reaches back to 1998. "A lot has changed since the early days of the Internet," says Jeter, reminiscing of when he started building websites for the engineering department at UVM. "Today, the tools available for designers and developers provide endless possibilities."

During the pair's careers, the two have helped create and maintain web presences for companies as diverse as Smugglers' Notch Resort, Dragonheart Vermont, Agri-Mark, Vermont Housing Finance Agency, Evernorth, Vermont Human Resource Association and many others.

Root802 offers a range of Internet services including: Website design and development, custom programming, and database planning and management ― as well as web hosting plans that include around-the-clock monitoring and back-ups. Other offerings include email hosting and domain name registration.

Many of our projects with Root802 go far beyond simple 'brochure' websites. They involve a lot of user interaction, data collection and reporting, third party interfaces and security considerations. In those regards, we haven't found a better web development partner than Root802"

- Ilana Hardesty, Assistant Director, CME Operations, Boston University School of Medicine CME Office. Hardesty adds,

Their ability to customize their workflow to meet our needs, think on their feet and turn on a dime is pretty extraordinary, and something I've found is lacking at many other web firms."

Lawrence Miller of Five Vines Consulting LLC consulted the founders throughout their planning process. William "Chip" Mason of Gravel & Shea PC in Burlington provided legal assistance. John Davis of Davis & Hodgdon Advisory Group provided financial analysis.
