Introduce your business and what you do there.

We have created a mobile application on both iOS and Android that allows customers to make payments against their holiday booking balance. At the moment, to make payments towards a holiday booking, you have to take a trip into the Travel Agency / Tour Operator, possibly have to take time off work to do so, ring up and pay via credit or debit card over the phone, or send bank transfers etcetera which are all incredibly inconvenient. Our mobile application eliminates all of that. Once a Travel Agent / Tour Operator is signed up to use our service, and a customer books a holiday, they will be automatically signed up to use our service also. Once the customer downloads the app, they can log in using their credentials and their remaining holiday booking balance will show. They can then begin to make once off or scheduled payments anytime and anywhere. It's just convenience.

I am a co-founder.


What challenge were you trying to address with 500 Designs?

We needed help with designing a pitch deck and our financials.


What was the scope of their involvement?

Before the pitch deck was actually made, they gave us a questionnaire and we filled out all the information. From there, they went and created the pitch deck and images. Once they got started, we sent it back and forth on a weekly basis to let them know what changes we wanted and what we wanted to be added.

How did you come to work with 500 Designs?

It was by chance we got in contact with them. My business partner came across Steve [Brett, founder] on LinkedIn. He just contacted him via LinkedIn, just because he saw he was Irish and living in San Francisco. He's an entrepreneur and my partner just texted him, as you do, to get some advice and see how he was doing over there. The relationship just grew from there, to be honest.

It grew over the course of a couple of months. Messages came back and forth and as the relationship went on, we realized 500 Designs could actually help us with our pitch deck and our financials. That worked out really well for us.

How much have you invested with 500 Designs?

That is confidential.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them roughly three or four months ago. We're still working with them at the moment.


Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Not yet because, as I've already said, we're still working on things together. The pitch deck has been sent out to people here and there. It is finished, but at the same time, we're just cleaning one or two things up.

We have spoken to a few people about it and the feedback we've received has been excellent.

How did 500 Designs perform from a project management standpoint?

It's been pretty straightforward for us. As you can imagine, the communication on a daily and weekly basis was mainly done via email. When help was needed, we reached out to them. We also held a Skype call every single Thursday and depending on what progress had been throughout the week, they could range from one to two hours. We covered a lot of work on these calls.

They were really helpful, but it was on the Skype calls that we got a lot of the work done because we discussed everything that went on in the week and what changes needed to be made. Once they were discussed, the guys went off and made the changes that were necessary and did the work on their side. Then, we followed up with a call the following Thursday again. We just kept working along that way.

What did you find most impressive about 500 Designs?

The level of work they do is extremely good and their communication skills are fantastic.

The pitch deck and financials are excellent. We're pretty confident we wouldn't have received the pitch deck and financials up to the standard that we've got from 500 Designs from anyone else. We're exceptionally delighted with the work they've done. They've been really helpful. If we had a question on the deck, or we wanted something changed, or we weren't too sure about something on the financials, they always cleared it up in an instant. If we sent them an email, they came back to us straight away. Changes were made very fast. There was no delay in the work to be done.

Are there any areas 500 Designs could improve?

Not at all, no. As I said, we don't think we would have gotten the same service from anyone else. The relationship we have with them is pretty fantastic. It's natural. Obviously, we didn't know the guys before we started working with them, but they're so easy to work with and they're very, very helpful and understanding. Their knowledge and what they do is at an extremely high level as well, so that definitely helps with the content.

Overall Score I would most definitely work with them again.
