We use Silktide at 2 levels. To review the websites of potential clients to show them what needs fixing and then to help them achieve these fixes, and secondly, to regularly review our own customer's websites to make sure they're achieving high scores and thus performing at the best they can. We share these reports with our clients.
  • Whole of site testing
  • Grammar checking
  • Cross device testing
  • Best practice review
  • Showing the location of any issues on a site
  • The ability to buy more page ranges on larger sites would be great
  • The speed test would benefit from integration to Google's Lighthouse testing
  • SEO rank checking could be broader
Silktide is well suited when you need a broad whole site overview. It benefits by allowing users to quickly and easily locate the flagged issues, making amendments much easier. It's less suitable for larger websites as it gets costly and it does need backing up with a Google page speed test.
  • Automatic repeat testing
  • Best practice report
  • SEO report
  • It's a great way to drive sales
  • It keeps quality high across the team
  • It helps us to identify when customers have broken things

Silktide [Compliance] is being used to examine accessibility concerns for all of our websites. Users are able to look at different scores and examine how accessible their website is. Users are able to do a manual scan of their website, or rely on a weekly email that automatically scans their website. Either way, our users know exactly where they stand on their website and how accessible it is.
  • Ease of use
  • Easy to understand
  • Great training
  • None really!
Silktide [Compliance] is a fantastic product, and works well in any environment where web page accessibility is a concern. We trust what Silktide offers in the scans of our web sites, and notifying our users on what changes need to occur. Further, Silktide explains what should be changed in simple easy to understand language. Any user, regardless of skill level, can understand the suggestions offered by Silktide.
  • Continuing our commitment towards Accessibility
  • Clients can easily understand changes
  • As a manager, playing "bad cop" is no longer needed because Silktide does it for us
Siteimprove may work for companies or organizations that have more complex needs. However, I believe most business will be much happier with Silktide [Compliance] due to its ease of use. Siteimproved offered way more than what we needed, and was also much more expensive. Silktide had the perfect balance of price and features.
