John created www.believeinhull.org.uk for our Believe in Hull project, where churches across Hull got together to tell people how much they (and God) love Hull. Working with John was great; he could not have been more helpful, listening to our needs and giving us the stunning design and flexibility that our website needed. His content management system was a joy to use (so simple and straightforward!) but also capable of producing an effective and impactful website.

Gareth is a talented IT professional who, during his time with Ballistic Blue, showed that he has the commercial flair/trade-off which results in realistic and achievable solutions that so many IT professionals seem to lack. His team were able to deliver new, totally different solutions whilst maintaining legacy sites and in so doing made the impossible possible. In addition his team were able to link otherwise previously non-linked accountancy and production software systems without the recourse to standard interfaces (which were not there) and integrate into effectively one package. The project worked so well that the software house for the package then adopted the principles Gareth put into place.

We have worked with John for considerable periods and on a variety of online projects. His work was mainly as a sub-contractor for our clients. We found John was not only knowledgeable and well-read in all aspects of website building and deployment, he was also flexible and tireless in the pursuit of giving clients what they wanted and when they wanted it. He is able to think clearly and concisely in relating website complexities to clients’ objectives even though the clients mostly didn’t realise the restrictions websites impose alongside their many advantages. He made it his job to be the client’s friend as well as his advisor. I have no hesitation in recommending John to anyone looking for a dedicated professional in his field who will undoubtedly give excellent service.

John did a great job in creating a high quality CMS and website for one of our popular IT magazines. The final website solution exceeded the project objectives and proved scalable and efficient. The projects were completed on-time. I would certainly recommend John and his POPex team.

As a marketing professional, I found working with John really complimented my skill sets. He filled in the technical elements on every project that we worked together on, and I thoroughly recommend his work. In the year that we worked together I learned a lot from John and consider myself a much more rounded marketer due to the online expertise that he passed on. Do not hesitate to work with POPex, you’d be in very capable hands!

We used POPex over a 3-4 year period for the design and maintenance of butlergroup.com. This included the brief to redesign the site through to essential everyday maintenance. The bulk of the work undertaken was for the Event side of the business so changes and maintenance had to be made in real time. However, the scope of the agreement covered butlergroup.com as a whole. On a personal level, I always found Paul and John to have a fantastic work ethic and they always went the extra mile to ensure changes and revised pages were in situ in real time, allowing smooth business continuation. They also offered support and advice on a number of other web site projects.

It is a genuine pleasure to deal with an organisation that offers such excellent customer service. POPex were chosen because their proposal seemed to be particularly innovative and best meet our future requirements. The work was carried out very efficiently and at each stage we were able to comment or ask for modifications. When the work was complete we were extremely pleased and impressed with the site. Thank You once again for a very impressive Website.

Richard Oldroyd
Director, The Promotion Company (Hull) Ltd

I strongly recommend anyone worth their salt in the POP industry to take a look at John’s POPex website. He is one of the people in this industry, that has created a truly worthwhile tool for any Marketing or Procurement professional involved with POS/POP. Very much worth the effort of a few mins of your time to take a look. An outstanding professional whose achievements within the POS industry create the leaps and bounds.
