    Certainly. We have a turnkey solution that would be perfect for your business. Please get in touch and we will be able to show you how.

  • can we update the text,images and banners on the static areas of our site?

    Absolutely not. You can have any image you wish. Some of the more popular ones are tennis, golf and badminton action shots! Also we can replace the "ball" icon (which shows when the user clicks to place the ball) with something more appropriate e.g. a tennis ball.

  • We would like to discuss our project - what is the best way forward?

    Use the contact form below and let us know more about yourselves and your project. If we need more information we will contact you otherwise we will send you a detailed proposal along with links to our demo sites.

  • What happens when we want to go ahead?

    The first step will be to begin designing your complete system in the form of a Functional Document. This document will be the unique blueprint for your competition. Once approved it will ultimately act as a guide for our staff throughout the entire development cycle. Also the completed system will be tested against the specs laid out in this document.

  • What happens during development?

    Whilst our team go to work on your project, you will still play an active role in the key development areas. You will be sent a questionnaire asking for your input in all areas of the user interaction process e.g. approval for the text in the emails to be sent out to users. Once the site has been developed you will be sent a link to a secure test site.

    It is our goal is to keep you in the loop whilst we develop your system. To achieve this we send a daily email at the end of each day with the project status and programmer notes.

  • How fast can my competition be ready?

    Our development process will take 7 working days. However this does not include the time for design approvals. Also you will need to factor in the time it will take you to get approval from your payment processor.

  • Do you provide any support once the competition is LIVE?

    Yes we can provide a low weekly maintenance package which will help give you peace of mind.

Also if you have any tweaks needed in the development, this can be covered within the maintenance!

    We do not sell one rigid solution; instead we offer a flexible service as we believe that not all competitions are the same. Therefore our proposal will be unique to your needs and requirements. Please contact us using the form below and we will send you a detailed proposal for your competition.
