Having developed a close working relationship with the team at Sport Options over a number of years, they needed to enhance and update their website and back-end event booking system.
About the Project
The team at Correl8 had worked with Sport Options for over 7 years to gradually enhance and improve their online booking capabilities, to help support their online growth to the be the top supplier of sporting events in the travel industry. Working to particularly deadlines, Correl8 had to provide new creative designs, logos and booking platform that would help them to cater for larger groups and increase market share.
“The team at Correl8 have been supporting the development of our online business for more than 7 years now and we've been delighted with the service we've received. Most recently, they provided us with a new, mobile friendly website and enhanced our entire back-end booking system, all within a very tight time-scale.
We had quite a few unique requests with what we required the new system to do, and they had no problem building this into the platform. Overall, extremely pleased with their work. Great team to work with and can't speak highly enough of them.”

Another challenge was to take a trusted brand that had existed for a number of years and come up with some new logo concepts and ideas that encapsulated the target market, without being too specific. Correl8 generated a number of different designs along with alternate colour schemes and type face. We were ultimately all happy with the final choice.
“Everyone we have worked with at Correl8 have been extremely friendly, professional and knowledgeable. They have always been very understanding of any problems that have arisen and worked quickly and efficiently to get these resolved. A truly wonderful patient team”.
Completely Bespoke online BOOKING SYSTEMs
Due to the way in which Sport Options contract and package their tours, they needed a highly bespoke system that would cater for their slightly unique client offering. The Correl8 online booking system has the ability to load many different event types, passenger configurations and flight & hotel packaging.
We also provided a facility and API link into different online merchants to allow split payments and serve different payment options to their customers, allowing transactions to be made at once or in incremental sums.
“We were only given a small window of oppourtunity to complete this new design and build. Due to the nature of the group selection process, it meant the customer could not be 'off-sale' for an extended period of time. We were honest with our estimations on timescales and delivered two weeks ahead of the proposed completion date."
The website is a custom design by our team, and we closely followed the theme of the logo into the build. The website is fed from the Correl8 CMS and we used the latest in website technologies whilst retaining support for some of the older browsers.
Correl8 are proud to have worked with Sport Options for a number of years and were very pleased when they decided to leave us such positive feedback that we can share with others.
