Being my first Website I knew what I didn't want but knowing what I did want was much more difficult. The only thing I did know was that I wanted a Website that would work with my book listing software.

In Crystal Thought I was really pleased to discover that they had previous experience of it and I now have a fresh custom built Website that is very easy to run and operate. Throughout each stage of the process I was involved in the build and the outcome surpassed all my expectations. If you need a Website then I would highly recommend Crystal Thought.

Crystal Thought designed and built, from scratch, our attractive, customer-friendly website, with great care for our specific requirements in a very specialist area of commerce, and despite the complexities of the database which underpins it. Their client liaison was exceptional, both extremely efficient and very friendly, so that we always felt we were in safe hands.

I recommend Crystal Thought wholeheartedly. They dealt with the challenges involved with setting up my website very efficiently and listened to me carefully to make sure that I got both what I wanted and needed.  My website looks good and works well. My customers seem to find it easy to use and I find it easy to maintain. Crystal Thought customer support is always excellent and my queries are dealt with very quickly, often within minutes.
