Robin Hood Limited was established in 1998 with a clear objective of encouraging business and tourism in England and Nottinghamshire. VISAV was then developed by Robin Hood Limited as a practical and straight forward way of updating their large company website.

Originally formed as an Internet business, the Robin Hood website  proved to be very difficult to maintain and administer. They tried many web design companies and experienced all the problems that just about every business faces when trying to manage a website.
