Online document maker OwlCentral has laid off eight staff in an effort to focus more on software development, chief executive David Cam says.
The redundancies were from Owltech, the company's web design subsidiary, Cam says.
"We looked at our business and what we're doing and decided that our real strength is Docdolittle [the company's automated document assembly product] and Owldocuments [its online legal document product] - web design is hard, expensive and competitive."
The company's four subsidiary structure will remain, Cam says, with Docdolittle and Owldocuments the main focus and training division Accelerated Computer Training also important.
Web design division Owltech will remain, but in a reduced capacity following the redundancies, Cam says.
"We'll continue to do our own web design and do it for customers who buy our software products, but it will be discontinued as a separate business."
OwlCentral launched an online divorce product in September and has made about 40 sales so far, Cam says.
