How did you hear about Marquee Tech?
We were contacted directly by Marquee Tech. Immediately we were drawn to a software that was built by people who had worked in the industry and understood the back end.
What made our solution stand out over others that you researched?
Put simply, the system is purpose-built for marquee rental companies. From the customer end with interactive quoting systems allowing upsale and small things like photos being built into quotes. Then on the other end, load lists, booking platform and stock control was built easily for our stock, never before has a system I have seen allowed us to not have to compromise.
What feature of our product was most appealing?
For us it was stock control and load lists, cutting down so much room for error and work for our admin team.
How did you find the initial account set-up process?
Once we go our heads around the system it is very intuitive. The main thing was that the marquee tech team were extremely responsive so any queries were quickly answered.
