" I couldn’t recommend inTandem highly enough for developing a website. Carolin is so easy to deal with and has a very clear manner of communication which I feel is very important. InTandem are capable of meeting and sticking to deadlines and have a very practical approach to training you in on the back end of the site. "
Ana Vahey, Owner Ana Faye, Sligo
" In 2015 Carolin and the inTandem team developed our web presence from a small site dealing only in our own in-house jewellery collections, to a full scale online craft outlet, capable of reflecting the depth variety and uniqueness of the work of all our suppliers. As we stock over 150 artisan craft makers, sometimes producing limited edition bespoke items ... well how on earth ... indeed why even begin setting up ... were valid questions. Shipping, taxes, inventory and supply, payment gateways there were so many questions and angles to be looked at. It was a daunting prospect to undertake. inTandem made it really straightforward. Setting us up with Prestashop was a perfect choice to manage all aspects of running an on-line shop. inTandem were able to customise it specifically to our needs through the robust modules Prestashop has available to it. At every turn where we encountered a new problem or consideration along the way Carolin seamlessly turned those into an opportunity for our customers and our suppliers and ourselves. We have a web presence now which properly reflects the unique Irish Artisan qualities of all our suppliers and our shop. We’re delighted with it and have no hesitation in recommending inTandem to future potential clients. "
Martina Hamilton, Owner The Cat and the Moon, Sligo
" Carolin and inTandem made my website vision come true. I attended Carolin’s ‘Plan and Optimise your Website’ course in Sligo. I had no experience with creating websites but Carolin made it all seem so accessible and exciting. When it was then time to build my own website, inTandem was the only designer I wished to use. I did my research and saw that all of the websites that inTandem created were highly individual to the particular Client; it was not a ‘one size fits all’ approach. So that combined with Carolin’s creativity, experience and knowledge made inTandem the perfect choice to build my website. Carolin guided me through the stages with such patience and dedication. I really felt that Carolin was as invested in my website as I was. A highly professional, efficient, creative and accessible service was provided by inTandem. Carolin is a warm, friendly and highly approachable person. The tuition I received was so easy to follow and I was presented with an easy to edit website (using Prestashop ecommerce platform) which is crucial to the success of your online business. Any queries were always swiftly dealt with by Carolin or Tim. If you want a highly professional and creative website service, inTandem are the website Designers to use. I am so proud of my website and it is better than I could have imagined, thanks to inTandem. "
Johanna Preston Butler, Owner of Katie + Maud, Sligo
" We were looking for a fresh new look for our website and found that Carolin from inTandem was extremely competitive in terms of cost and offered a very efficient service coupled with great support and practical tutorials. Carolin is very professional, capable, has an excellent eye for detail and the follow up customer service provided was excellent. "
Ashling Cartwright, Rural Development Project Officer, Leitrim Development Company, Leitrim
" As one of Carolin’s earlier clients from 2010, I can say that there is no web designer as efficient in their dealings. Carolin took over our web design and development back then as well as managing our email hosting and we have never looked back since! In fact she has just done our new updated web site and took our brief on board and delivered everything on time and on budget and we are delighted with the result. Carolin is a breath of fresh air to deal with and you will not find a nicer person to deal with! "
James Morrison, Owner, Morrison Estates, Dublin
" Carolin and inTandem have been excellent to deal with. The whole process was simplified by her and she took on board all the details that I wanted on the site. I am delighted with the website and have no issues with recommending her to anybody looking to get a website designed. "
Paul Lennon, Owner/Physiotherapist, Advanced Physio West, Roscommon
" I have found Carolin to be professional, insightful and good to deal with. She is well prepared for consultation meetings and accessible in explaining concepts and training. I have no hesitation in recommending Carolin and her work! "
Ian Kennedy, Development Manager, Yeats Society, Sligo
“ I had a very basic website when I met Carolin and sought her advice. I was embarrassed of my old site and always made excuses to people about it, but I didn't know what to do about it. Carolin had a vision immediately for a new site that would portray my brand in a very professional manner, be user friendly for customers and be easy for me to maintain. Carolin was unbelievably efficient. The full site build only took a few weeks. She replied immediately to every email I sent her (many outside working hours) and was always at the other end of the phone when I needed her. Carolin is so easy to get along with and I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so. ”
Louise Carroll, Owner of Louise Carroll Designs, Leitrim
“ Carolin is extremely creative with InTandem web design. She listens well to client needs and manages expectations while catering for your own imagination, ideas and input. She works with you to fulfil your dream - tactfully balancing the fine line between aspirations and what is realistically possible. And she makes it all look great! In avoiding highbrow, IT / webby "lingo" - Carolin makes things simple, easy to understand and follow. You feel like she invests her own time and complete energy to make sure you really understand how things work on your site. She coaches you how and empowers you to take control of your own website - saving money on small changes, while being there when you know it's time to make a big update, upgrade or design changes. Her knowledge of up to date, easy to use tools is fantastic - even when challenged with a website that is mostly video based - Carolin did the research and came up with solutions that work exactly as I wanted them to - cleanly, simply and I'm in charge! I would wholeheartedly recommend Carolin at InTandem to design, build and become a partner in your website vision. ”
Lottie Hearn, Owner of Press Play Presentations, Dublin
" Working with Carolin was easy,she has an intuitive ability to assess "where you are coming from" and produce results tailored to your needs.it was a case of Like meets Like and it is great to work with someone who delivers what you envision without hassle!

“ Carolin did an amazing job on my website. I am so thrilled with the finished product. She took on board all the information I gave her to give me exactly what I wanted. Carolin is very intuitive and a good communicator making it easy to work with even when not in the same country! I have no qualms in recommending Carolin in fact I already have and they are also delighted with her work. ”
Ingrid Pilkington-Wright, Owner of IPW Interiors, London
“ I already had an existing website which I wanted to change and when I rang Carolin (who came highly recommended to me) I knew she was the woman for the job. Carolin is so creative, she knew exactly what I wanted in a website.
I had been in touch with other web designers before I heard about inTandem Web Design and none of them came close to what I wanted. On a professional level, Carolin is so efficient and on a personal level a really lovely person. I can now manage my own website as Carolin taught me how to. It is so user-friendly and I am confident I can maintain it in the future. So, I would firstly like to thank inTandem Web Design for creating the perfect website. And I would definitely recommend them. Thanks again from a very satisfied customer... ”
Joanne Mooney, Owner of Tiny Things, Dublin
“ I really would recommend Carolin, she clearly loves what she does, & this shows through her work. From start to finish her attention to detail and follow up on all aspects of our requests was brilliant. We are delighted with the finished product. ”
Michelle Henry, Owner Gilbert Henry Goldsmith, Sligo
“ I was tearing my hair out, when I first started thinking about a website for my new business. I tried a couple of different ways, including the DIY approach ahhhh! Then I realised it was like learning a whole new language, and I needed an interpreter. Fortunately for me a friend at school gave me Carolin's details. Thank you Ingrid! The first time I spoke to Carolin, I knew she would put something together that I would be very happy with. Carolin made the whole process stress free, even though I had a few days of being in front of the computer, lots of writing and picture sourcing, my family lost me there for a while, but it was worth it. I find Carolin to be an absolute expert in her field, easy to understand and a great listener! A fab gift to have. Carolin comes highly recommended and I wish her many more lovely clients. "
Gail Goss, Owner of Gail Goss Property Management, London
“ inTandem Web Design has developed a brilliant new website for Sligo Live Sessions. Carolin and her team quickly grasped our needs and helped us convert them into a brief. They operated in a fast, no nonsense manner, explained everything they did and drove our decision process. inTandem came up with a creative, clean, user friendly design that accurately reflects the festival. They worked quickly to a deadline and delivered on time. All this was accomplished without any disruption to our existing website, so the first our customers knew of a change was when it went live. And most importantly, they were a joy to work with! ”
Rory O’Connor and Shane Mitchell, Producers, Sligo Live Sessions, Sligo
“ I wanted to thank you so much for my wonderful new website 'namesinframes.ie'. I am so happy that you were recommended to me to develop the website for my new business. I honestly could not have found another web designer that was so in touch with what I wanted and needed. Your hard work and imagination has produced a site beyond my expectations. It was very refreshing and pleasurable to work with you and I am so impressed by your 'can do' and 'will do' attitude. You were one step ahead of me all the time, and were constantly offering solutions without request. I can honestly say that I could not have found a better web designer. As you know already, in a former life I was a HR Manager for a successful insurance company - if I was asked for a reference for you, I would have no hesitation in recommending you! Thank you again, I will you every success for the future. ”
Orlaith Hickey, Owner, Names in Frames, Dublin
“ Carolin has been a godsend to our business and we have received many comments from clients and browsers who have complimented how user friendly and good our website looks. From the beginning she was dynamic, pro-active, understanding of the brief, and efficient. She delivered on time and took great effort in explaining how MODx content management system worked with notes, lots of conversations and aftercare service. She had a great sense of understanding what we needed for the business and also what works best for the customer. I can't recommend her enough and am just glad we found her. ”
Teresa Harte, Owner, Velo Vercors, France
“ For a small, though important educational publisher, with no existing website but with a definite need to promote our titles and to offer them for sale to the public at large no matter what corner of the country they live in, Carolin has proved invaluable to us. From her pre-development questionnaire, to her design and implementation, she has managed to direct and focus our thoughts so that at no stage did we stray down blind alleys or get waylaid by unnecessary detail. Her ability as a web designer and her knowledge of the pitfalls and difficulties of dealing with necessary third parties, has at all times made the process of determining our needs, compiling our information and executing our requirements a smooth and efficient process. Her delightful manner and her forthrightness has also made the development of our website a happy, stress-free project and we are looking forward to going live on time, with style and most importantly, with the functionality w both need and expect for this vital marketing tool. ”
Philip Ryan, Production Manager, The Celtic Press, Dublin
“ We are a professional theatre company and theatre venue operating in Sligo since 1990. We are a major client organisation of the Arts Council of Ireland. Carolin Collins of inTandem web design was responsible for the development of our web site www.blueraincoat.com earlier this year. Our experience in working with her was exceptional. She immediately grasped the ethos of our company and how we wished to see this translated through our web presence. Carolin's work has delivered a site for us that for the first time in 11 years we feel correctly embodies and reflects our company. Carolin also established a site management system which has allowed us for the first time ever to administer and update our site with scheduled events, and downloadable information with complete ease. We have no hesitation in recommending Carolin and In.Tandem to any prospective client, and indeed we have already done so on several occasions. ”
Malcolm Hamilton, Founding Director, Blue Raincoat Theatre Company, Sligo
“ Carolin Collins designed our website when we were at a crossroads in our development as a community based choir wishing to promote ourselves to the world at large and with an expanding membership, a growing repertoire and a real need to communicate en mass with our members and their parents. Her insight and her methods of posing pertinent questions to us helped us to clarify our needs and our expectations from our website. Her dedication to her work and her ability as a designer ensured that every difficulty was surmounted with efficiency and that our website was developed with style and in a manner that gave us every confidence in her abilities. Since going live in 2009 we are most impressed with its functionality; we are proud of the image of us it portrays we know we have joined the global choir movement as is evidenced by the number of communications received from both prospective members and from the world choral singing both at home and abroad. ”
