I have set out to exceed expectations with everyone that I have worked with. Some of these people I have not actually met face to face. With web development, and particularly with some of the media sharing methods that are available today, it is now possible to work remotely using the Internet both as a medium for voice, video and data communications and storage. Costs are automatically low, I can use my systems at any time, and deliver content ready for a client to review in a test website location or in a private cloud storage area.
Below are some of the comments that have been made by people I have developed sites with.
“I am writing on behalf of the Board of Trustees, Shushana and Ruth, and all of us involved with Home-Start Aylesbury to say how grateful we are for the tremendous job that you have done in reengineering our web-site. Everyone who has seen it has been most impressed and it will most certainly help us to deliver the service that we offer.”
Keith Horlock Chair -Aylesbury Home-Start
“The initial brief to Mark was to redesign our old website and make it much more user-friendly. In particular we wished the site to be easy to update and maintain with staff being confident to take on this role. Mark fulfilled all our requirements in a very professional, friendly, flexible way, making the whole process straightforward and stress free.”
“It was very useful to see intermediate versions of the site so we could get a feel for how the finished product would look and Mark excelled at making sure we were fully updated with what was happening and how the site was structured.”
Ruth – Home-Start Aylesbury.
“It was a good experience to work with Mark who was always assuring that we were heading in the right direction and who worked extremely quickly to provide updates. He was very adaptable to changes and helped work through seversal iterations as we realised that the proposed actions were not correct. He provided many good photographs using his own extensive equipment and also amended several photographs; to meet current legislation and to enhance shots provided by us.
I would recommend Mark to other organisations and would expect them to benefit hugely from his skills in project managment and website creation, both of which are required in large measures when undertaking such a task.”
Roger Lockyer – Chairman of the Abbeyfield Beaconsfield Society.
“Chiltern Child Contact Centre (CCCC) has benefited greatly from the services of Mark Wingrove in the setting up of our website and its associated email and links.
I have especially appreciated his help in familiarising myself with the facilities that our website offers, and the handling of enquiries and contacts. Unlike many computer whiz kids, who flash their fingers over the keyboard and fix things for you, Mark has given me very clear instructions and watched with infinite patience while I have mastered the various procedures myself.
He has also dealt very firmly with a not very supportive web hosting server, and thus achieved exactly what we need with our website. We were all ignoramuses as far as what is available, and Mark has offered suggestions which were sensible within the limits of what is suitable for a Child Contact Centre.
I am sure that anyone who uses Mark’s expertise cannot fail to be satisfied”
Margaret Howard – CCCC Co-ordinator
“From the outset Mark has been extremely professional; his knowledge of web design is outstanding and exceeded expectation. He approaches his work in a calm and measured manner and his overall demeanour put me quickly at ease.
Mark is a great motivator and often helped me to work through tasks step by step thus ensuring the workload was manageable.
He provided excellent support, was always available to discuss concerns and offered practical solutions.
The website is now complete and looks excellent. It is everything I could have hoped for and more, Mark has my highest recommendation.”
Sarah-Jane Scott – Scheme Manager for Home-Start Gosport and Fareham
“It has been a delight to work with Mark as he has a keen,quick and creative sense of humour and this makes completing a huge project much more enjoyable and satisfying. I personally feel more educated and have benefited from his extensive knowledge of IT and the world of web building/advertising/publicity etc. Throughout the web building process Mark sought our feedback as he made alterations and perfected the end product. It was clear that he was determined to attain the closest thing to perfection and invited the entire team to critique his work with no holds barred.
Mark works at an incredible speed, it’s like a ‘same-day service’. This type of efficiency is unbeatable and quite rare in my opinion.
Any organisation that works with Mark Wingrove will benefit incredibly from his capable expertise. Stepping Stones will always be grateful for his talented contribution that has literally put our organisation on the map
– we are now more accessible and visible as a business.”
Suzanne Symeonoglou – Co-Play Leader of Stepping Stones Therapeutic Playgroup
“Mark’s professionalism and good service made the whole process so straight forward and easy to complete that I was amazed! From first contact to completion was so much quicker than I’d thought it would be! I was very impressed by Mark, his whole ethos about helping charitable organisations like ours to get an online profile is very refreshing to find. He was approachable, helpful and reassuring and I would definitely recommend his services to other organisations.
Mandy Sowerby, MSc HRM – Scheme Manager Home-Start Lincoln
“”I really thought this would be a difficult (editing) process and can’t believe how easy it was. Mark provided very easy to follow step by step instructions making the whole process “painless” and actually quite enjoyable. When it came to editing the website his instructions were so clear and simple to follow that I had no problems and feel confident that by following them it is something I will be able to accomplish with ease in the future.”
Eileen Knowles – Office Administrator Home-Start Seaham
“We found Mark through the Home-Start UK website and he couldn’t have been more helpful, efficient and patient. Mark took us through each stage of the design process with easy to understand instructions, helpful hints and thoughtful inclusive advice. Now we have been trained to take over the process ourselves, he is there in the background should we encounter difficulties – so we feel very well supported. It has been a most positive experience. “
Claire Durrant, Chair, Home-Start Uttlesford
“Following a competitive tender, Risborough Area Community Bus management committee asked Mark Wingrove to develop a new website for them. His skill, patience and sympathetic understanding of our requirements has resulted in a highly attractive site that will do much to promote and ensure the success of our community bus operations in and around Princes Risborough. In particular, Mark was exceptionally responsive to our requests for help, resulting in a remarkably short timescale for development of the site. RACB has no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Mark’s services to any organisation be it commercial or not-for-profit.”
Peter Johnson, Risborough Area Community Bus Management Committee
