What clients say about ORKID

Having worked with ORCKID for many years, I know I have the team at my side to support me when it matters most. During a period of transition at Mitsubishi Chemical, ORCKID continue to demonstrate their unrivalled agility to execute the most challenging of briefs.

Their ability to understand our business opportunities and provide the digital solutions to go to market without compromise is second to none.

Becky Morrison

Director of Marketing & Communications, Mitsubishi Chemical America

ORCKID have been a major supplier of our global digital systems to Verbatim for over 10 years.

They have developed all our platforms including a multi-lingual e-commerce shop, extranet and intranet in a strategic, creative, and thoroughly professional manner.

Gary Milner

Sales and Marketing Director, Verbatim

I worked with Andy for almost a year on various projects that involved creating mobile apps made for training purposes.

The Creative Engine (now part of Orckid) has been by far my favourite partner to work with, thanks to their diligence, efficiency, ease of communication and professionalism. They taught us the overall importance of interactive training content, an important future consideration for our team. I look forward to another opportunity of working with them.

Esra Err

Associate Product Marketing Manager, Google

It’s been an absolute joy to work with you and the wider ORCKID team. The safest sets of hands I know!
