My partner and I have been clients of Eclectec for the past five years. During this time we have had them build and update a vacation rental property website, a portfolio website for our design business and two e-commerce websites.
Jim and Ellen combine all of the technical and marketing expertise that you would expect of a large firm, together with the customer-centric focus of boutique agencies.
They have always met or exceeded our expectations with regards to planning, implementation, deadlines, launch schedules, integration, maintenance and budgets. As designers themselves, they have proven to be good listeners and able partners in taking our vision for a site and making it happen. We frequently recommend Eclectec to our friends and clients in both the United States and Mexico. We view them not just as our "webmasters" but as our valued partners.
Eclectec produced a wonderful website that enabled me to get Iluminado Tours up and running. Throughout the years they have been one of Iluminado Tours greatest assets, always keeping me up to date with the trends, the technology, and creative approaches to marketing. They are good people to work with, always friendly, efficient and patient with my many questions. Eclectec looks after all the technical details so I can focus on running my business. I have complete confidence that Eclectec will keep me on track and moving in the right direction in the future.

Eclectec designed our new website and wrote, filmed and edited our two videos, “This is Yucatan!” and “Live, Work and Retire in Mexico”. They have consulted with us on marketing campaigns and numerous important aspects of our business. Ellen and Jim are smart, hardworking and have the pulse of our market place. They know Yucatan. Their intuition and advice has always been spot on! I rarely make a business marketing decision without consulting them first. I strongly endorse and recommend their services.

Thank you so much for not only producing such a beautiful website for our house in Merida but also since then, quickly and with no fuss, helping with the marketing and advertising of the house whenever I have needed any extra support, help with analyzing statistics and coming up with useful advice to improve the situation. I cannot recommend your team highly enough.

Recently I launched a new website for my business. I was not sure where to turn when I realized I needed a more professional site than I already had. I had seen some of the sites Eclectec had done and was impressed. I was not disappointed.
I was probably not a very easy client to work with. I knew I needed something professional, but beyond that I was not very clear at times. Ellen and Jim were very patient, and provided suggestions.
They always had a very quick turnaround time, and beyond email, they were always just a phone call away if needed. Overall I found the program and design quality to be very good. The design of the site from layout to color is exactly what I wanted, and the functionality of the site is fully optimized. Eclectec gave me what I wanted for a very reasonable price. They did everything for what they quoted, and delivered on time. If you need a new web site, especially for your business, I would highly recommend Eclectec.
Eclectech is number one in our book. We are so fortunate to have found you. We really appreciate that you took the time to understand our business and create a website that works so well for us. We have increased our catering sales by 50% since you built our new website.
We receive compliments daily on how beautiful and easy to use it is. It is so convenient for our customers to be able to request estimates and view our services online. We loved working with you and we will definitely be in touch soon to have you do another website for our new restaurant.

Working with Jim and Ellen Fields of Eclectech has been a real pleasure. Our consultancy deals with the global garment and textile industry, a complex and competitive sector with loads of industry-specific terminology and concepts. In the past, getting our computer needs met had always been fraught with frustration. Sometimes we dealt with programmers who were simply unqualified. The so-called garment industry specialists were even worse as they changed the product according to their limited understanding of the business and always tried to give us something based on their past work.
With Eclectech, we got what we wanted the first time. Communication has been wonderful: Jim is able to explain things clearly to non-techies without talking down. Queries and minor problems are dealt with efficiently and promptly. I've also appreciated the attention to detail; emails and other documents are always proofed and edited before being sent. Follow through and delivery are exemplary: work is always produced on time.
Another bonus is Eclectech's excellent graphic sense. I don't even bother to give instructions on color, font or layout because I know they'll always give me something that looks great. Last but not least are their rates which for first world-type service and product are simply outstanding value. Regardless of where in the world we're working, we will continue to use this company for our computer needs and do not hesitate to recommend them.

We have been delighted with the service received by the team at Eclectech. They are responsive and helpful. They also have a deep knowledge of technology and functionality, and are always quick to point out the pluses and minuses of a given solution and to propose alternatives.
They are quick and reasonably priced. We have had no difficulties working with them in different time zones and halfway across the world. In short, they are a pleasure to work with, and totally professional.
We loved the web page you made! It looks very professional, and we are very pleased.

We are writing as a testimonial and recommendation for Ellen and Jim Fields in regards to the work they have done for our vacation/rental house website Casa Del Panadero located in Centro in Merida. Our website is located in their Yucatan Living website and has been very beneficial in regards to activity for getting it rented on a consistent basis. In particular, we had them do a video tour of the house and they definitely captured the essence of this renovated, old colonial. I feel this video sets our house apart from other listings and plan to add this video to other vacation rental websites such as VRBO. We would recommend their services to any and all whom need exposure for their vacation rental business.
Sincerely, Darren Woodson DVM and Margie Alvarez

The rentals are doing much better than we had even hoped! Thanks, I fully believe, to those wonderful photos! We have had the Mell House Tour 3 times, and everyone seems to love Casa Granada. Your advice has been invaluable, as well.
