What our clients saySplitpixel provided outstanding design ideas, were flexible in their application and offered valuable experience and advice where needed. The iterative build stage involved regular and effective communication wherein Splitpixel were very responsive to feedback. The final migration and launch was very smooth and stress free. We feel we have achieved all of our original goals and beyond.
Ian Llewelyn, Landmark Arts Centre.
Working with Splitpixel on The Cabot’s website project was a tremendous success. Their team’s expertise and dedication were evident from the outset, as they carefully listened to our requirements and translated them into a visually stunning and highly functional website.
Tori Dumstorf, Heard Strategy, The Cabot.
They’re a really friendly, focussed bunch who genuinely want to see your project succeed. The expertise they have in Spektrix integrations also made the process of launching a new site alongside an entirely new Box Office/CRM system so much easier than we expected. We’re over the moon with the final result, and – most importantly – we’re seeing a marked increase in online sales as customers explore our range of events.
Graham Whitehead, Head of Arts & Culture at Junction Goole.
The integration with Spektrix was seamless and the support we received was outstanding. WordPress is easy to use and very flexible. Ultimately, we have a website that reflects Harrogate Theatre: is open, accessible and welcoming. Exactly what we set out to achieve.
Kerry Maddison, Head of Sales at Harrogate Theatre.
With a modest budget and a tight timeline, Splitpixel worked collaboratively with us to produce a website that really represents Coney. They were able to decipher what we wanted when at times we weren’t entirely sure what this was, and their communication throughout the whole process was excellent.
Kit Denison, Coney.
We introduced a new donation platform, rehoming system, events bookings, and online shop checkout. They held our hands through the entire process, and we are thrilled with the result. The website has already started to make a difference and in our first week online donations were up by 190%.
