I am absolutely delighted with the website that PoliticsWeb have built for me.

"PoliticsWeb provided me with a tremendously high quality product, promptly and without any fuss. Above all, it is their flexibility and willingness to carry on developing the website product which stands them head and shoulders above so many of their competitors.

"PoliticsWeb have reviewed the needs of MP web sites from the ground upwards and have designed a system that is totally flexible, easy to control and update, and very cost effective. The 'off the shelf' modules are relevant and very functional, allowing a very fast build time for those in a hurry to get an online presence with style and integrity. I found PoliticsWeb people very easy to deal with too. Response time to requests was exceptional, and fixes were implemented usually within minutes. I am very impressed and would not hesitate to recommend PoliticsWeb to any of my colleagues, as well as other political groups and associations. They understand our needs and have a product to suit."Helen Grant MP - www.helengrant.org
"PoliticsWeb is simply fantastic - very easy to use and highly flexible. We're really pleased with the site, and the support service they provide is the best in the business."Matt Hartley for Chris White MP - www.chriswhitemp.com
"PoliticsWeb has helped me create a first class MPs website enabling me to communicate in a clear and effective way with my constituents. The best thing about it is the ability to instantly update content, photos and videos on your own - in a very simple way, 24/7. It means it is always fresh with the latest news, speeches and press releases - which is what the public expect these days!"Aidan Burley MP - www.aidanburleymp.org
"The PoliticsWeb content management system is intuitive and very flexible, ensuring that updating the website is simple and rewarding. Support, if needed, is prompt and reliable. A PoliticsWeb website is definitely a fantastic long term investment for any candidate or campaign."Stephen Phillips MP - www.stephenphillips.org.uk
"For constituency campaign websites, PoliticsWeb stands head and shoulders above the rest. Not only is the site remarkably easy to set up and maintain, and delightfully easy on the eye, but its functionality is greatly enhanced when integrated with the latest web tools such as Google Maps and Flickr. Thus, through a diary map, viewers can see exactly where and when the candidate has been going, and they can see a photo of an event only a moment or two after it has actually been taken on a Blackberry or an iPhone. A donate button, which links up with Paypal, can also be integrated. This type of interactive website, designed to engage with the electorate, was used very effectively in the Obama campaign. It is high time that we all caught up with this winning technology in the UK."Tim Adams for Sarah Wollaston MP - www.drsarah.org.uk
"I want to thank PoliticsWeb for building and designing a fantastic website for my campaign - one that integrates Flickr, Google Maps, PayPal and much more, and a website that engages visitors by encouraging them to sign up to support me, receive emails or just take part in a discussion on local issues. The site was built based only on an email I sent with my ideas and they have been extremely helpful dealing with my subsequent requests. The content management system they have developed is also extremely easy to use and allows me to keep the website updated as often as I like. I have no hesitation in recommending PoliticsWeb to other parliamentary candidates in Scotland. It's time all candidates utilised the web as campaigning resource."Councillor David Meikle - www.david4glasgow.com
"PoliticsWeb websites are easy to use - even for someone like me! Instantly updateable, they have the convenience of a blog with the style and timeless simplicity that Leonardo da Vinci would have approved of. Add to this, Michael's extreme patience, his advice on style and content, and his almost 18 hour a day accessibility and I would not dream of using or recommending another company."Peter Botting - www.peterbotting.co.uk
"As Management Officer for Ealing Central and Acton Conservative Association, the responsibility fell upon me to organise a new Association website and content management system. As COO of a multinational IT business, our supplier selection process was undertaken with rigour and backed by deep IT industry experience. We considered demonstrations and written proposals from 10 carefully selected website suppliers and PoliticsWeb simply came out miles in front. The PoliticsWeb platform projects a highly professional image, contains incredibly rich functionality while remaining very simple to use. The guidance and support from PoliticsWeb is superb and we have encountered zero technical issues with the platform. The inexpensive one-time cost model means we can adapt and change the site to our hearts content without any additional cost. PoliticsWeb is one of those truly unique finds, that one almost wants to keep as a secret."Robert Morley for Ealing & Acton Conservatives - www.ealingactonconservatives.org.uk
Our website for Charlie Elphicke, MP for Dover & Deal, was the overall winner in the BCS MP Web Awards 2010. According to the BCS, "Today, the internet is integral to successful parliamentary communication and public engagement. The BCS MP Web Awards recognise the best sites that successfully engage, excite, provide information and encourage two-way communication between MPs and their constituents.
In addition, judging criteria takes into account ease of use of the site, including navigation, accessibility and use of social media." Charlie's website was additionally a finalist in both the usability and engagement categories.
Our work was highlighted in a 6,000 in-depth piece for Wired Magazine by James Crabtree, senior Editor at Prospect Magazine, highlighting how a "new generation" of Conservative MPs were using the internet in innovative ways in the run up to the general election. (Print only)
When we first launched Charlie Elphicke's website, ConservativeHome proclaimed it a "new standard" for candidate websites. Four years and more than 50 sites later, we are still building engaging and interactive modern websites. Original article.
