Behind the Scenes with Rackspace, Skylark Creative & DataKom
Here at Booking Live we’re all about working with professional, technically driven businesses and individuals. In terms of clients, we work both with small, local businesses and large, international business. The same applies to our suppliers in that we work with both small, local business and large, international businesses. In our eyes it’s about quality rather than quantity which is why we’re more than happy to work with smaller, less well-known suppliers as long as they’re able to provide us with the dedicated service we require. You can rest assured we choose only the most professional and reliable suppliers to further both our clients’ success and ours. That’s why we chose Rackspace, Skylark Creative & DataKom.

Skylark Creative: Web Design Agency
Over the past few years Booking Live have formed a successful partnership with the web design agency Skylark Creative. We employ Skylark’s web design expertise when undergoing website work that our clients have requested. One of their team was even kind enough to attend our Booking Live event back in September where they gave a great talk about the work they do. You can view a slideshow version of the presentation on Slideshare. If you’re interested in creating a website or updating an existing one contact us today. We can make sure your Booking Live system is seamlessly integrated within your company’s website to ensure your brand identity is secured as well as increasing online bookings and sales.
DataKom: Communications Providers
As online booking providers we’re all too familiar with the problems technology businesses can face, but we’ve definitely found reliable providers in DataKom. DataKom have been particularly helpful in accommodating our HQ moves throughout the years, sending out engineers to install new lines around a time that suited us.
Why Do I Need to Know All of This?
We’ll admit aspects such as our communication providers may not have a direct link to your online booking system but without all these “behind the scenes” suppliers we wouldn’t be able to deliver as great a service as we do. Metaphorically speaking it takes a lot of small cogs to run a big machine. We’re sharing these insights with you to provide a full understanding of how we work here at Booking Live. If you have any queries or if you’re one of our current suppliers and you’d be interested in featuring in a “Behind the Scenes” piece then please contact caitlin@bookinglive.
