“Best waiting room solution I have used” “A reliable and easy tool to use” “Easy to use with FANTASTIC support” “Great set-up experience. Fast, efficient support.” “Did exactly what we required” “Great solution to website traffic problems”

”We had issues with sudden bursts of traffic taking our eCommerce stores offline. Launches or Viral hits would cripple our systems, significantly affecting the ability to profit from the popularity. CrowdHandler fixed everything, we let people onto our site in a controlled manner and made more sales than ever.”
Jamie Recker, BuiltByGo
“We left CrowdHandler operating on our site, based on a slow request threshold. This has already paid dividends. In the past week the unexpected announcement of a lineup for an event triggered a huge spike in demand, which we were able to handle comfortably.”
Matthew Large, Glisttr
“We expected a huge spike in users for a 24 hour period. CrowdHandler allowed us to protect our infrastructure, without confusion. Having the ability to place users in a virtual waiting room allowed us to manage the use of our service, without worrying that the spike would affect day to day users.”
Jason Hawkins, Choice Voting
