Client Description

Excel Sports is one of Edinburgh's leading holiday sport and activity camps. Aimed at 5 to 15 year olds, Excel offers a huge range of activities to keep kids entertained and active over summer, autumn and Easter breaks.


Excel Sports had run into trouble with a dated site and a cumbersome booking system, which was threatening their ability to carry out sales and retain clients from previous years. NB designed a brand new site, updating the colour scheme, and making use of the great images the camp organisers have taken over the years. The site is stacked with all the information parents need to know about the camps, giving them full confidence in placing a booking.

The biggest challenge lay with the booking system. Having previously used an out-of-the-box solution on a very basic CMS, Excel needed something much more bespoke to them. The booking system had a number of very specific requirements related to the information that determined what camps were available, and to who, and when. The system also needed to retain customer data allowing for future bookings to be placed at ease. NB planned and built a whole new booking system from scratch, which performs exactly the way Excel need it to. Within five minutes of launch, we were already seeing bookings being placed for the upcoming Easter 2018 camp!
