  • Paul Albon, Race Director

    Big Bear Events

  • "Working with The Search Factory has been brilliant. Not only is the user face simple to use for my runners but the search function is truly excellent. For not much more than online photo storage would cost I now have a very professional and high-tech gallery for all of my past events. The service levels I've received have been great too with nearly all of my communications coming at odd times of day but all getting near instant replies. I do, and have, recommend The Search Factory to any organisers out there."

  • "We are very excited to be working with The Search Factory for all our e-commerce needs. Customer experience is so important to our business and not only does The Search Factory provide our own customers an exceptional online service, they have been so helpful to us along the whole process. We are amazed by the attention to detail and willingness to help. Thank You!"

    Mel Parry Events

  • "Since starting to use The Search Factory last year, our sales have increased significantly per event, and I can only put that down to the 'Search by Selfie' facility working exactly as it should, alongside an extremely effective 'Search by Number' facility as well. Behind the scenes the team have been so very helpful since the start, always available to help at the end of a phone or WhatsApp message, always happy to tweak my back-end interface for my clients, in order to meet my sometimes demanding bespoke requirements in relation to the workflow I was used to before I started using TSF. Very highly recommended."
  • Aaron Murrell, Head of Operations

    Epic Action Imagery

  • "It has been a pleasure to work with Andy and the team at the Search Factory for the last couple of years. They have been ever so helpful at all stages of our move over from our previous platform, to the platform - with facial recognition and vast array of benefits at all stages of an event images lifecycle that the platform provides - delivering a whole host of improvements for photographers, event participants and organisers along the way. We look forward to our continued work in future."
