Challenge:

Sport Relief came to us at the last minute because they wanted to be 100% sure their website could handle their donations on launch night.

Solution:

We tested Sport Relief’s website to destruction and after uncovering a serious error, we helped them fix it; giving the team reassurance it could handle donations concurrently across web, mobile, call centre and Paypal donations on launch night.

Result:

Sport Relief was able to handle 214 donations per second on the night and eventually raised an incredible £68 million pounds, without any technical hitches.

They say:

Thanks to SCL’s dedicated staff, who worked above and beyond the call of duty, we were able to enter the final phases of a busy campaign with confidence. SCL’s obvious expertise in this field made it possible to work under the extreme timeframes within which we have to operate, closely replicating unusual real user traffic patterns
