API - The Spektrix API allows deeper access to the database, allowing more customisable options. There are a number of iterations of the Spektrix API for different purposes. We’re looking for great use of the API in powering listings, search functionality, faster basket creation and custom sign up options.

Spektrix Code Snippets - Using all available Spektrix code snippets from the Spektrix Integration Portal to ensure the booking flow responds as expected. Examples of these include the Iframe Resizing Script and Checkout Scroll Script.

Cross-Selling and Upselling - Taking full advantage of upselling and cross-selling opportunities to recommend additional purchases to customers. This could be using the multibuy cross-selling iframe, recommend items or even a fully custom basket page.

Sign Up Forms - Simple and effective calls for customers to sign up to specific contact channels. This could be using a well-styled simple sign up form, or a custom-built API form capturing more options and adding data to a customer record. These will also handle errors with friendly messaging and obvious actions for correction.

Web components - Effective use and styling of Spektrix web components which create simple pathways from product or donation selection through to basket. These work with straightforward prompts to add Donations, Memberships, Merchandise and Gift Vouchers to the basket.
