Ali Cook -EADR.co.uk
We decided to ask Designtec to create a website for us after we had had some problems with our previous site. From the start, Neil understood what we were looking to achieve and more importantly, what our customers wanted to see. Out of all the websites we have had, hand on heart it was by far the easiest transaction. Within a couple of weeks we had our first draft and because Neil had successfully captured our goals in the planning stages there was minimal tweaking before we could go live with it. We now have a site which looks good, is easier to navigate for our clients, we can create blogs easily and it is FULLY editable by us in terms of content. Neil and his team have also provided excellent after-care as we have needed to update a few things, but nothing has been too much trouble. Training on how to edit the site also comes as part of the amazing service. We could not recommend Neil and Designtec highly enough, thank you again.
Despite working in IT for 20+ years, I had never been through a design build cycle as a customer before. Designtec were brilliant.
They helped my business partner and I understand what was needed to make the new site deliver our message and they designed a new logo that we really like.
Furthermore Designtec have always been responsive to questions and design tweaks, perhaps doing a little bit too much within the 'fixed price' if truth be told. I cannot fault their customer service.
Also worth knowing that their Content Management Solution is slick and easy to use.
I would happily recommend Designtec to anyone requiring website design and logo design services and would use them again myself in the future without hesitation.
Very good service and they definitely know their stuff. Thanks Designtec
Designtec has built my companies website. They also help me with SEO work free of charge. Plenty of on going help with all aspects of how to present your company on social media. All of this work and so much more was carried for 1599+Vat
I would like to say thank you to Neil at Designtec for going above and beyond, the Designtec team have been phenomenal in creating my website. The level of services is fantastic, and without Neil pointing me in the right direction my website would still be a dream.
I can not thank Neil enough for all the advice he has given to me along the way it has been invaluable.
I found looking at other web-design companies there are lots of hidden charges and when you look at their own website it doesn't fill you with confidence. But at Designtec the packages Neil offers are fantastic you will not get the level of services the style of website anywhere for the money or even more money that these packages are, thank you again Neil
I know I wouldn’t have received the level of service anywhere else and would not hesitate to recommend Neil at Designtec to anyone else requiring an excellent Website
DJA Electrical Design Services Ltd
To whom it may concern,
When I was given the responsibility for updating our company website presence I was somewhat daunted by the task at hand. However, thanks to Neil and his team at Designtec, I can honestly say that it has been an absolute pleasure from the outset.
Through planning, site structure and design they have guided us through the maze of getting our website updated so that we feel confident that we are now projecting the right image for our company. Together with their professional knowledge of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) we are looking forward to establishing the right platform for the basis of a marketing campaign.
Designtec are not only value for money but give an incredible amount of ‘added value’ from their support and experience. They care about what they do and care about their clients. Going with them is definitely one of the best business decisions we have made in a long time.
Incidentally, and this in my experience is a rarity, Designtec truly fulfils the aims of their Mission Statement
Empowering our clients by using innovation, practical skills and a highly creative visual palette. Designtec supports likeminded clients by crafting beautiful, functional websites to enhance your online presence. We do this because we enjoy watching you succeed.’
Thank you Neil – You and your team deserve to succeed!
We had some recent website training from Neil, who came to sit with us in our office, as we have a new employee who also needs to be up to date with the website.
Always excellent support, whether it be over the phone, email or in person! Would recommend to anyone looking for a website designer!
I had a website (not supplied by Designtec) which was not being found on any web browsers or if it did it was many pages from the first page.
Neil came to me and told me he could get us on the first page of Google and suchlike. I must be honest, for the price Neil quoted for a newly designed website and hosting I did not think it was possible.
So I agreed for Designtec to go ahead anyway as the old website was next to useless.
Within a month of going live our new website started appearing on the first page of Google when potential customers were searching.
I was amazed Neil was correct in everything he promised.
Designtec are very professional and very quick to respond when contacted if I needed assistance.
Our business has benefited hugely by using Designtec
I highly recommend Neil and the team at Designtec.
Designtec were employed to help me create a new web site. They explained the way in which their approach differs from the norm and we made plans to create an attractive but effective site both from my customers perspective and from that needed to build a platform that we could keep working well for the long term.
By breaking the range of tasks needed into bit sized chunks I was able to really understand what it is that makes an effective and successful site. In addition because their system can so easily be edited I am able to keep refining and developing the site without further cost. All round so far a great experience for which I have high hopes for the future.
Designtec built my website, but it never stopped there. Designtec have always gone the extra mile to help, modify and improve my website. More recently they solved a technical problem with my spf record during my migration to Infusionsoft. Fully deserved 5-Star review.
Allison Cook - EADR.co.uk
We approached Designtec Ltd to redesign our website after hearing great things about their work and reading their excellent reviews. After an initial chat on the phone, Neil came over to visit us and very quickly grasped the idea of what we are trying to achieve, and also our target audience.
We were quoted a 4 week lead time, however, the first draft was through much quicker than this, and with very minimal tweaking we were up, running and live.
I have to say that this has been by far the most painless, smooth website redesign that we have ever experienced (and we've had a few). The site does exactly what we asked it to do, all the contact forms work and is also "future-proofed" so when we do decide to add more things on, we can. Not only that, we can do almost all of our own changes following the training given by Neil and his team, which was included in the price.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Designtec - a website design company that you can rely on. Thank you!
Leigh Sharpe - Clean Living Norfolk
I was introduced to Neil Burr and Designtec through BNI and also my partner, who works for the FSB (Federation of small businesses).
Neil is passionate about providing a high quality service, in my case a new website, passing on information about SEO and Google's requirements, whilst at the same time providing a service at a reasonable cost making it affordable to a small business such as Clean Living.
I have been impressed all the way through the process and am really pleased with the end product particularly as any amendments that I wish to make I can make myself and not have to go back to Designtec thereby speeding up the process and saving additional costs.
I strongly recommend Designtec and the complete service that they provide.
Dear Designtec, I would like to thank everybody at Designtec for the great work they put into building my website. I have never had a website and had a nice long discussion with Neil about not only the website but all the other baffling stuff like blogging, linking social media, and various other internet magic. Neil made everything clear and took the time to show me the system that he had built to a spec he designed. I left Neil in charge of the look and design and he and his team have done a beautiful job. Im extremely happy with my website and have had some brilliant feed back from the people that have seen it. Many thanks
Mr C Snailum Director.
Cardinal Copywriting - Nigel Woollsey
Having been with Designtec for a number of years they were my first port of call when I decided to relaunch my business with a new website - and they didn't disappoint. Helpful, friendly and highly professional they created a smart, great looking website with all the functionality I could wish for. When I had a question or query about how a particular part worked they responded very quickly - either solving the issue immediately or telling me in clear, understandable language how to do something myself.
The result is a, SEO-friendly, terrific looking website which is both easy to use and change - whenever I need to.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Designtec for anyone looking for professional website designers.
Just wanted to thank the Designtec staff for making me a great website, it's been live now a couple of months and everyone who views it are always so impressed by its look, feel and functionality, but not as much as me ;-).
The team at Designtec have been brilliant from our first meeting with Neil to discuss our business and what we required, thoroughout the whole development of our site. Designtec have captured exactly what we were looking for to help promote our business and display our company in a very positive and professional manner. The team have been very helpful at every stage of the process, we couldn't of asked for a better comapny they exceeded all our expectations!
The help and assistance they have offered has been crucial to the expansion of our business. Will has been great to work with and offers a wide range of knowledge.
Thank you so much for helping us promote and expand our company. We would recommend them to anyone looking for a professional webdesign by a company with a wide range of expertise.
I have worked with DesignTec for three years and found them streets ahead of the rest. Its refreshing to find a company that can help with everything from web site design, social media, ecommerce and on line marketing all under one roof. They offer great advice and support at a price that's affordable and genuine value for money
I am delighted with our new website, www.cleannorfolk.co.uk, designed and built by Designtec Ltd, which is now live and creating an impression amongst our friends, colleagues and our customers.
Our prior forays into the internet have always resulted in disappointment. Unfindable and expensive web packages with confusing jargon and no hope of a return on investment had led us to abandoning a web presence altogether! Thankfully, Neil and his excellent team are available with sensible advice, direction, support and above all an end product we are proud to use and, more importantly, one that will undoubtedly help us be found by more local customers.
I've recommended Designtec Ltd to several other small business owners and will continue to do so.
I would like to thank Neil & his team for a first class job, Having worked with designtec over a number of years, I have found there work & advices valuable to bringing my vision wright up to date.
We approached Neil following a bad and costly experience with another local web design and digital marketing company. Neil and his team provided everything we were looking for; a professional yet personal approach which allowed us to work closely with the team to achieve the exact web site we wanted and a fast and efficient service which meant that our new web site was up and running in a fraction of the time the other company we used had offered. It not only looks fantastic but functions really well too.
The team have taught us how to make the most out of our web site and we feel we have an excellent on-going working relationship with them, secure in the knowledge that we can get assistance when required and honest, reliable feedback.
In short, Neil saved us from a poor and costly service which was damaging our business. This is evident in the new enquires we have already received from our new web site since its launch. He went above and beyond to assist us and I would happily recommend his services to anyone.
Designtec have been thoroughly professional but remaining friendly and very approachable during the entire design and development of our website. They have been flexible to our needs and kept us informed of any additional costs but still remained very competively priced and probably the most cost effective website designer in the region. We would not hesitate to recommend Neil and his team to anyone requiring website design and development.
Designtec has designed the perfect website for my business. Neil and his staff have all been extremely helpful in all aspects of producing the website to my specifications. They have offered help and guidance where needed.
They have also designed flyers incorporating the same colours and design as the website.
I would highly recommend Designtec for website and leaflet design.
Neil assured me that he could get my website on the first page of Google. What Neil quoted me for the build of the website and monthly fee I thought it was not possible. How wrong was I. From the second week my company started appearing on the first page of Google and we have been there ever since. I think it has been 3 years since. Recently Neil had to change my website to make make it mobile friendly and once again it was all hassle free, very competitively priced and we are still on the first page. Neil, thank you and the staff at Designtec for increasing my website traffic and consequently increasing our sales. Highly recommend."
This is the 3rd website Design tec has built for me over the years and they always offer great service and advice and deliver great looking websites. Thank you to Neil and the team again!
To anyone looking for a reliable web developer, contact Designtec, I highly recommend them. They produce beautiful and sophisticated designs and highly functional websites at a relatively low price. In my case, I kept costs low by customizing a site template. As a professional event management company that works with clients successfully all around the world image is very important. Although the site looks impressive and I have received comments from clients and visitors who love it, the site is unfortunately going unnoticed by Google. The Designtec team pitched in and advised on ways to improve its performance, they were fast, friendly and honest. Once I have put things into place this will deliver a high quality result for www.neevent.co.uk . I know where to come when I am ready to upgrade to get things done the right time, first time round! Neelam Sultan
Delph & Co
how it has turned out and would recommend them to anyone in need of a new website.
Thank you for your help once again
Delph & Co
I needed some support with my company websie and Designtec gave a first class service. Thanks for all your support and help guys.
From the initial meeting with Neil & then through all the stages of building a web site with Will, I have found Designtec to be friendly, helpful & who be more than happy to recommend them to anyone else.
Alexis Main Clinical Hypnotherapist
This is my second order of business cards from Design Tec and I wouldn't go anywhere else. The cards are well designed and of top quality production. I feel they represent the professional presentation I aim for within my business and are frequently commented on favourably when I hand them to clients and business associates. Thank you
The full office team at Designtec have been fantastic! From the minute I met to discuss my concept, and thoroughout the whole journey of launching and running my site, they have listened, explained and helped me. It was crucial to my business that the site was right first time - and it exceeded all my expectations!
The continued help and assistance they have offered has been vital to the growth of our brand. Will has been so patient with my seemingly endless questions too!
I sincerely cannot thank the team enough, and recommend them to anyone looking for top webdesign by people that truly know their stuff!
Right from when I first met Neil I was impressed. Three years down the road and I still recommend his company.
Designtec have done a brilliant job of designing our branding and organising the printing of business cards and banners.
Neil has communicates with us perfectly throughout this process ensuring that we were happy at every stage.
The net result is stunning.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Designtec for branding, and printing as well as for Web design.
My Peace of Mind
I have yet to be convinced that the average person can build a professional website using templates and copy and paste word documents. None of this compares with a website built by professionals with not only technical and creative ability but with a strong understanding of commercialism too. It's not enough just to have a website, my website needs to be found and I am proud of what my potential customers will see when they click on www.engagewithbusiness.co.uk
Excellent service, helpful and guiding through a process completly out of my usual scopr of work
i was lucky enough to be introduced to Neil and have been very impressed with the help and work
thank you again and again
From past experience web designers seem to promise everything but fail to deliver. Not so with Designtec they took our brief and developed a first class website with each step in the process explained in plain English. Its comforting to know that we no longer have to worry about our website or google rankings because Designtec have it covered.
Designtec utilise their extensive knowledge in this field to provide excellent website creation and maintenance services. By utilising their technologically advanced website platform they easily maintain our website and enable their SEO service to keep providing us with a substantial web-presence. Through this we constantly stay high in the search engine results
Thank you for seeing me after work - a huge help - and thank you again for your help and advice. Needless to say i will be speaking to you in the coming weeks to discuss plans for my next website.
Designed us a fabulous website and always on hand to assist us with anything. Would recommend anyone to hire Designtec for all your website needs!
Excellent web design service, look no further than Neil at Designtec
Neil took my existing website and turned it into something very special, that has the look and feel of quality. In my business the client needs to trust you and this website certainly promotes trust, there is still information to add and change as we are in an ever changing market, but I am told (I haven't had time to try it yet) that this can be done easily and smoothly so that your website never goes out of date.
Aldous and Saunders
If you are looking for a professional image for your business then look no further than Designtec! Neil works with numerous professionals to deliver an all in one website design and print package. We would have no hesitation in recommending Neil and his team to any of our clients.
Very please with the service received from Neil and Will. New website looks stylish and professional. Training on editing was very good. Now looking forward to SEO training and getting the hits to the website increased.
I'd been trying to get a website done for years and then Neil at design Tec was recommended by a friend. I couldn't be more pleased with their friendly professional service that made getting everything I wanted into a website easy and enjoyable. Not being technically minded my self they walk you through each stage . Thay also helped me out with logo's and other key design features to get my business flowing. Thoroughly recommended.
SA Architectural Services
We approached Neil Burr of Designtec for SEO and social media training in November 2013.
Neil's advice has helped us to treble our internet traffic within the last month, and has resulted in a significant increase in client enquires.
Clients from sectors we have not targeted from our print marketing are able to find us with ease, and this has resulted in commissions from a large industrial client, and a landmark residential scheme which would have been beyond our reach before this training.
Neil has provided us with the tools to grow our online presence, and consequently our entire business. I have no hesitation in commending Neil Burr to you as a knowledgeable, trustworthy, and experienced trainer and consultant.
Neil built a website for me when I set up my therapy practice last summer. He knows his stuff and made the process easy for me. His BONGO CMS lets me update my content when I need to and he's always available to advise when I need it. He provides an excellent service at very reasonable rates and I trust him to support my business as it grows.
Great friendly service very happy with website ??
The Partea Hut
I now have a fully functional and might I say attractive website thanks to Will & Neil.
Only downside was my ignorance in not realising there was a monthly hosting fee - shocked when told, perhaps for us 'non website' people these 'obvious' things could be advised upfront.
However I'm sure had I searched on your website I would have seen this for myself.
Keep up the good work and the Millionaires Shortbread has not been forgotten!
RA Wine Racks
From my 1st point of contact, nothing I asked for was too much trouble and they delivered exactly what I wanted Thanks Neil and Will
Top End Kitchens
Neil is the first web designer I have wanted to use to create my own business website. Good honest advice and built the website I needed, not the one that made him the most money. If you need a great business website that does exactly what you want it to do, you need to get in touch with Neil at Designtec.
Neil has designed and constructed a great website for my start-up business, Complaints Mediation, giving invaluable advice and guidance. His Bongo websites are simple to change and manage. I love the design - it's crisp, clear and uncluttered. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended.
Service Category: Web Design
Year first hired: 2013
Very pleased with the website designed and the service delivered by Neil and his team. I have no hesitation in recommending Designtec to anyone. Grahame Green, Norwich Dog Training School
I ordered my business cards and advertising postcards through Designtec, They created the design for both items and I am very pleased with the results. The service was excellent, delivery of the cards was very prompt and I would definitely use them again.
Neil Burr has provided website design services for me for the past few years. He has created two websites for our organisation. On both occasions, Neil set up the website initially and provided much of the design work, and then taught us how to use it effectively to improve our search engine optimisation. Neil spent a lot of time with us going through what to have in our website and how to have is laid out effectively. I have been very impressed.
Phil Burton Photography
I just wanted to thank you so much for the work you have done for our company.
We have a website that regularly features in page 1 and in the top six organic links on Google. The social media buttons on your website platform mean our customers can interact with us on all the main platforms. Designtec have helped us to grow our business by allow us to connect with our customers on the internet far better than the previous platform we were using.
I have no hesitation in recommending you and your company Designtec for all internet marketing, social media and website matters.
Manager Web Sales
Phil Burton Photography
We have worked with Designtec for over 7 years and found them to be helpful and reliable. We require a durable but simple web site with the ability for us to update and change from time to time. Designtec have offered us a very efficient, cost effective solution.
Designtec have made us an excellent website which is easy to use and looks great.
I would recommend anyone wanting a new or updated website.
Heroes Fitness Stores
Being a complete novice and only experiencing websites as a user, I contacted designtec who built me a site, perfect for my needs at a competetive price. Just as importantly they were very helpful and patient in handling my (probably very basic) questions and responded very quickly to other queries I raised and help I needed.
The depth of knowledge of designtec is impressive and the results indicate that the people know their chosen industry. They design excellent web sites that are easily maintainable due to superb designs. Also, their SEO service produces some excellent results due again to the depth of knowledge and skills of the technicians
Aldous and Saunders
We have been using designtec for the past couple of years and found Neil to be very helpful with our website design and seo. If you are looking for a web designer who will take an keen interest in your business, then Neil is your man. Glenn Saunders Aldous & Saunders Accountants and Business Advisors.
Designtec excelled as they did on previous sites for us we had no hesitation in contacting them again for a new site. Our new website is clean and crisp highly professional and the attention to detail has been first class. Quote !! the website is only as good as the designer. Many thanks Neil a great job done.

Norfolk Dinner Dates
Designtec have created a very classy looking site for my business. Neil demonstrated loads of patience when working with me to develop the site I wanted.
He remained professional and illustrated a keen eye for detail.
I have had some great feedback on the look of my site, comments include - "Looks really great" and "Extremely nice site" to "Ur website well posh"! Which I think says it all.
I talked to several website designers. I know I made the right choice deciding on Designtec.
Very helpful and a pleasure to work with.

Norfolk pest control services
DesignTec is a knowledgeable and friendly company with expert knowledge in the online business field.
I would recommend them to anyone needing to get a business online
DesignTec provided an excellent service during the whole process, attention to detail and customer needs beyond the line of duty were received.
I will recommend the service to anyone that is planning to have a web page, the platform is very easy to use and thanks to Neil's tutorials you will get your SEO's working for your business in not time.
SA Architectural Services is very happy with the Results.
Very happy with our website. It looks fantastic, was soon easy to find once online and works well. The after sales service is brilliant any minor "hiccups" are quickly and efficiently put right and there always seems to be a helpful voice on the phone to assist. Thank you Neil couldn't have done it without you, we shall be highly recommending you to everyone!!
I was recommended Designtec by Inspire Beyond and I am very happy that I met Neil. My website looks very professional and has become exactly how I imagined it thanks to Neils patience and support. Neil took time to design the first drafts of the website, made me confident in creating parts of the website myself and his expertise has made the finishing look perfect.
Rob M - Meta Online
The CMS system pioneered by Designtec is the best I have seen to date. It’s extremely easy to use and is very search engine friendly. The overall service offered by Designtec is as good, if not better than other larger web agencies I have worked with. Neil manages to keep costs low while offering excellent websites. I highly recommend using a Bongo system especially if you are looking to successfully sell products or services online
Jo Stoddart Quintessential Relocation
Neil was recommended to me by the ARP and given his knowledge of the industry built up through having worked with other Relocation Consultants as well as the ARP and EuRA, he was an obvious choice of website designer. Having looked at the Bongo CMS, I couldn’t believe how straightforward it seemed to be and my practical experience of creating new pages for the site has proved that Bongo really is as user-friendly as it looks.
When I first contacted Neil, I hadn’t finalised a logo, but he worked with me to come up with a really suitable logo and then went on to create the design for the website based on this. Both the logo creation and the website design took longer than I thought it would because I was quite fussy about what I wanted, but Neil was patience personified. Past experience of loading photos onto a website using another CMS had been a nightmare and I was dreading this part but couldn’t get over how easy it was to do with Bongo.
Furthermore, Neil’s advice about Search Engine Optimisation was invaluable and although it is really necessary to keep on adding fresh content to stay high up on the listings, I have nevertheless been very pleased with the advice given. In terms of value for money, Neil’s service was excellent and I would have no hesitation recommending Designtec.
Kate Wilde - Managing Director - Engage with Business Ltd
It’s really hard to have credibility in business today without a website but it’s a nightmare choosing a designer. I was so relieved when I met Neil and I knew almost immediately that he was the person I wanted to work with.
Although 24/7 backup is available by phone and e-mail Neil was more than happy to sit and talk things through to ensure there was a coming together of minds of what I wanted to achieve. The self management part worried me to begin with but it really is so easy, I don’t feel daunted at all and am looking forward to being able to regularly update my information.
Carl Smith - Smith and Bloom
the service and 'after support' I received from Neil was first class. Not only has he produced an excellent website he also has a fantastic understanding of how search engines work and how to get to get your website to the top of Google searches - excellent service, I would recommend him to anyone
Richard Manti National Will Practice
Neil was very easy to work with. Unlike other designers, he actually listened to me and, together, we came up with a good site. Thanks Neil
A Mondello, Director, The American Hour Online
Designtec put together our website within a few weeks, transferring data from our old site and putting forward various designs for the new site. Everything was processed remotely, via telephone and email - and that included the training! I was impressed with how easy Designtec's system was to work with, and within a matter of hours was able to update my new website, referring to their easy reference guide and a few follow-up calls with the company. Designtec have been a pleasure to work with, handling our requests professionally, efficiently and quickly. Thank you to Neil and his team.
We are very pleased with our brand new website. We find it easy to operate and versatile, with huge changes in style available. One of the very best factors is Neil’s availability and willingness to help with even those questions that turn out to have very straightforward, sometimes obvious with hindsight, solutions. Neil has also shown himself generous with his insights and advice, all very much appreciated
Helen Elliott Managing Director American in Britain
Thank you very much for creating American in Britain's website so quickly. It looks just how I imagined it, and I can't believe how easy and quick it was to do. You were great at altering things so that it looked just how I wanted it to, and I have already had some emails from potential readers and advertisers as a result of the new site.
Gerry - Adams Wood Carving
I am really pleased with the site, people keep finding it all over the place, I have had more work and enquiries in 8 weeks than in 8 years with my previous website, and Neil has been more than helpful, talking me through it and sorting out any teething problems
Lorraine and Richard Clarke
I would just like to say thank you for all your help and advise with designing our website. You were always quick to reply to our questions and made things slightly less complicated for us to understand, I am really pleased with the outcome,especially now as we come up on page 1 of Google search. Thank you
Armada Surveys Ltd
We needed a website that conveys exactly what services Armada Surveys offers and allows our potential clients to easily get a clear understanding of how we can assist their commercial property assets. We appointed Designtec to undertake our website demands and the result did not disappoint. We have the web service we need with the added benefit of being able to update this ourselves whenever we need to. We also have the reassurance that Designtec are there to help should we need them and they are always quick to respond and more than happy to help. We look forward to our future relationship with Designtec
I highly recommend Neil - to date he has done the maintenance + IT jobs/ updates/ networking/ reconfiguring etc. One thing I particularly like about him and his style - he turns up when he says he's going to, is reliable, straight talking and fair. Good guy in my opinion. He is going to do my website for me and is keen to get started! You can also (and he is very keen that you do ;-D) amend each and every page yourself! He trains you on how to use the software.
Andrews Blakeway Consultants Relocation
As an international relocation company with offices in Belgium and the UK, our clients demand high standards of service and we have to do the same of our own suppliers. DesignTec came recommended to us and we have not been disappointed. Whilst we have never been to their offices, or they to ours, they have gained a good understanding of our business and our requirements and we see them as an integral partner in our Company development. We needed to transfer the hosting of our web site which, to our delight, went seamlessly and smoothly, and we have also worked with them on upgrading and redesigning the site. Their speed of response, availability and ability to solve problems for us has been greatly appreciated.
Debbie - MeggyMoos
Hi Neil, Just a note to say thank you for all your help both in setting up the website and the ongoing help that you are always happy to give. After just a month or so of being on the web most of my pages are on either page 1 or 2 of Google which can only be down to the brilliant way that Bongo, and the optimisation it does works. "Bloody marvellous!!" Thanks again
We commissioned Designtec to install our network over 3 years ago, which with their assistance, we have continually expanded. To date the network has been completely reliable with virtually no down time. Should we ever have any technical queries, we always receive a fast response. And their rates are sensible too
Since easylighting was designed and built 4 years ago, we have found the website go from strength to strength. Not least because of the support from Designtec. They have provided us with continued assistance to help us with search engine optimisation techniques
The Association of Relocation Professionals
We have worked with Designtec on several large projects, including three web designs, web upgrades, the implementation of our database management system and the setting up of our office network system. At each stage of the implementation of these projects, we have been kept fully up to date with regular progress reports and training on new systems. The Bongo web system is the most efficient and cost effective design tool we have ever had. It saves us both money and time, is extremely easy to use yet broad and flexible enough to more than fulfil our diverse needs. In terms of ongoing support, Designtec are just a phone call away and have always responded to any need promptly and courteously. Designtec have also taken on bespoke projects for us, including the design of an industry specific management system that will become a benchmark for relocation specific needs across the UK and Europe. Our web systems, internal and external networks, management systems and industry tools have been implemented and maintained by Designtec to very high standards at costs we can afford. To have peace of mind in our technology has transformed the way we can work, making us more productive and far more responsive to the needs of our members.
Richard Baldry Managing Director FibreTek (UK) Limited
Nowadays, people do not take the time to sit and write letters unless they have something to complain about, but this is certainly not a letter of complaint. When in business, it is most imperative that technical problems are dealt with as soon as possible as the computer is the central part of any company. I would like to express how pleased we have been with your service. You always act so promptly and efficiently to any calls for help we make. Many thanks for all your help.
Since computers have become an integral part of every business their failure can be devastating. and the selection of a competent service engineer is vitally important. However the best technical help is useless when delayed and prompt customer service becomes paramount. From a personal point of view, and coming to computers towards the end of a fifty year career in business, I need help immediately the stuff hits the fan. Not tomorrow, not sometime but now. If not before! Designtec has given that service and I can thoroughly recommend them
Many thanks for the speedy rectification of my computer problems. As one who knows nothing about computers and how they work I rely 100% on the support you and your Company give me when I hit problems. This time it was a virus that contaminated 156 files. I apologise for calling you on your holiday but thank you for coming out to me immediately on your return. Not only were you able to guide me in what I could and shouldn't do whilst I awaited your return, you on arrival finding it needed more drastic work, removed the system to your office and returned it in complete working order within five hours. You then re-installed it and I was back on line and in business. What really impressed me most was the following morning after I had done something wrong, you went on line from your office. Connected into my computer and corrected the problem. Most impressive. If you need any references for new clients please do not hesitate to give them my name or email. I have used many so-called computer experts over the years, not just for back up repairs etc but also for website design. None come anywhere near to the service, support and expertise you provide for me. Many thanks. I will no doubt be in touch again, very soon!
Designtec have exceeded all our expectations when it comes to the website design and SEO capabilities of the Bongo content management system.
From the first day I met Neil Burr, through the design phase, to the ongoing support he has taken personal responsibility for delivering an absolutely first class website.
I wish we had used Neil's services several years and many thousands of pounds ago.

“Neil built a website for me when I set up my therapy practice last summer. He knows his stuff and made the process easy for me. His BONGO CMS lets me update my content when I need to and he's always available to advise when I need it. He provides an excellent service at very reasonable rates and I trust him to support my business as it grows. Highly recommended.”
“We use Neil's Bongo system for all the websites we create clients. They are always delighted with the result and the ability to content manage their systems on and ongoing basis. Neil is always ready to offer a helping hand or advice with any questions we have and makes any changes requested of him quickly and accurately.”

I first met Neil at the Basics for Business course with Broadland District Council and felt at ease to have a conversation about technical things I didn't quite understand! Having looked at Designtec's portfolio I felt they could produce the right theme and feel for the website that I was looking for. Designtec have been excellent at keeping in touch through phone and email as I have little time for meetings. All the tweaks to the website to make it how I want have been done in a professional manner. Most importantly to me, Designtec use a program that I can access to edit information as and when I need too but I have the support from Designtec when I need it.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and I would thoroughly recommend you.

I was recommended Neil at DesignTec for the design of my web site. He also designed my brand logo and produced the graphics for my postcard mailers and business cards. He made what could have been a very complicated process a lot more simple through his comprehensive knowledge and calm approach. Neil is one of the most patient people I have met. He is able to put even the most complex IT processes into simple terms and showed a genuine interest in my business. He was as keen as I was to create the 'perfect' image for my business and was prepared to go the 'extra mile' in order to do so. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.
Neil has just finished my new web site for me, I am so pleased everyone loves it, its exactly how I imagined it would be and more. Neil listened to everything I needed on the site and delivered.
I would definitely recommend Neil to anyone,and know they will be pleased.

Designtec has provided us with just what we wanted - the techie support we needed to design and manage our own website.
Visits are double already
We knew what we wanted, and had tried various ways of achieving it (from expensive design companies doing it for us to on-line web design options where we struggled to do it all ourself). None of this worked.
Neil has given us - and continues to gives us - unstinting support every step of the way. (Always in the minimum time and with no fuss.)
We now have exactly what we need: a simple way to create and re-create a website we are proud of, the means to update it ourselves every time we need to, and the support to build in new elements in the future as things change.
As a charity the cost is important to us. This has been a very cost effective way to make a complicated website that profiles our work and runs our shop.

Just a note to thank you for all your help with our new website.
Throughout the process your response times have been quick, you've listened to what we wanted, and we've appreciated your help and guidance. Probably the biggest compliment I can pay to you and Bongo is that even I with my complete lack of any technical knowledge can now amend, put up, and take down web pages in minutes. Brilliant, thank you again

What can we say?
The website you have designed for us is awesome, fantastic beyond all expectations.
From our first meeting designing the head banner, the design of the pages and the total creation of the website has been first class.
Thank you for the amount of time you have given us and for helping us with all the pages for the areas we cover which have been added to our website. Whenever we phone you always have the time and patience to advise us.
We were very apprehensive about where to start with designing a website, but after meeting you we never looked back.
The whole impact of our website is superb and it has brought us new and valuable customers we would never have had.
If you are prepared to spend time and put in the effort with Designtec you can create a superb website too.
We will continue to recommend you to anyone who needs a great website designer. You’re the best!

I would like to thank you so very much for the beautiful website that you have created for me. I am absolutely thrilled. I really appreciate all the time you spent with me and your expertise in designing such a wonderful individual website.
The fantastic head banner and colours are perfect, far beyond my expectations. I feel sure this website will transform my business and I look forward to working with you as we continue to build further pages.
I will most definitely recommend you.
Brilliant really brilliant.
Once again thank you so very much.
Richard and I felt we must write to thank you for your excellent help and support when creating our new website. You have guided us all along and given us endless time and patience and the finished result is fantastic-very easy to use and very professional.
You always answer the phone to help solve queries and deal with problems straight away. I am very lazy with updating the website and your support has guided me easily. Your timescale from start to finish was exact and our new site was up and running within days.
Thanks once again.

The team at Designtec, Neil in particular, are extremely easy to work with - straight-forward advice given and no end of patience with people new to web design. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone thinking about a new site or re-design of an existing website - very knowledgeable, always available via e-mail or phone for queries 'out of office hours' and they've made my new venture into the world of websites extremely easy.
Bongo is easy to use, even for a beginner, with instant results which are easy to change once you've grown in confidence - it's therefore easy to keep your website up-to-date with new content which is important for a retail website.
Nigel Woollsey at Nigel Woollsey - Freelance Writer & Copywriter
I can't praise Neil and Designtec highly enough for the magnificent work they have accomplished in creating my new website.
Firstly, I was more than impressed with the highly polished and professional website they designed and built in exact accordance with my business needs. Neil accomplished this in an incredibly short time meaning that my site was live mere days after I've briefed him on my requirements. Even so, he took the time to keep me updated at every
stage of its design and build - making sure that I was happy with the direction it was taking and acting promptly to include anything else that I needed/wanted.
Neil is a pleasure to work with - friendly, helpful and honest. I felt at all times that I could trust him and his valuable advice implicitly.
In terms of value for money Neil and Designtec provide a service that many less scrupulous web designers would charge a premium for. His after sales care is second to none - and not subject to any hidden charges.
All in all I have no hesitation in whole-heartedly recommending Neil and Designtec to other businesses that are looking for a high-quality, high-value web designer.
My e-commerce website offers a valuable opportunity for customers to see what I have to offer and to purchase on line. I am so pleased with professional results. With Neil's genuine enthusiasm, support and expertise I am confident my website will continue to grow staying fresh and exciting.
Though I knew a website was an absolute must for my business I felt overwhelmed and daunted by the prospect of creating one. I spent several months researching the subject which, rather than alleviating my concerns, only served to prove how very little I know! Hence it was a great relief to meet you. From talking to you I realised how committed you are to producing results and in working with you those results are impressive.
In a seemingly effortless way you combined everything I had hoped for in artwork and laid it out into a website utilising my somewhat rambling text in a creative, concise and professional presentation. You captured the look I had imagined, and made a site appear from my pages of words. I was and am thrilled. I have a real sense of achievement when I direct people to my website. I know it represents what I want to say in the way I want to say it, and I have you to thank for that.
The initial building of the website seems to be only the beginning of the package of creativity and management you offer through your professional service. As work continues I find you endlessly helpful in guiding me to achieve the most from my investment, in ways that I can build further pages to secure traffic to my website. This is achieved alongside other services which you offer such as the design of my business cards, which ensures there is a real feel of continuity throughout visual presentation. You are generous with your information and advice.
There is much more that I could say, about your obvious wealth of knowledge in your area of expertise, of your attention to the smallest detail, of the excellent back up that is available, both through your tutorials and from you personally, of your professionalism. Yet all of these comments essentially encompass one main thing, which is that you are a really nice man to know and an absolute pleasure to work with.

We asked for a website for a debt collection service, and he provided one that fitted the bill exactly (www.debtcollector-lp.co.uk). We then asked for a more extensive website for mediation, and again he produced a website that fitted the bill for that exactly (www.mediation-1st.co.uk). Both websites have been invaluable to Leathes Prior. All the way along, Neil's main strength was that he was able to produce exactly what we asked for with technical perfection and without quibble. Indeed, I was particularly impressed that, unlike most other website designers, there was no faffing about and no increase in fees as we went along. He just produced the website we wanted, very quickly, for the fixed fee quoted and we have not had a single problem with either website since. As well as providing such an excellent quality of service, his content management system (bongo) is incredibly easy to use. It's a WYSIWYG system that's intuitive and easy to use and ensures that the site maintains its look whilst allowing a substantial amount of freedom and flexibility within each page and when creating new pages. Indeed, when we asked about features that didn't come as standard in the "bongo" system, Neil looked into it and let us know what he could do. So far as I can tell, if it can be done on a website, Neil can do it. Finally, as if everything else wasn't enough, his prices are lower than almost anyone else on the market and are quoted on his website. And there are no hidden charges. So I would recommend Neil's website design services to anyone.

Michele hired you as a Graphic/Web Designer in 2013 Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert “I have been working with Neil both with a new networking organisation, 'East Coast for Business' and he has just finished re-designing our website. I have been really impressed by his honesty, the way in which he explains how the website should work and what we need to do to use it to its full potential. We are now in the process of updating the information which is so much easier with his easy to follow tutorials and the fact we have full access and can make our own changes is making life so much easier.” May 3, 2013
