Schwinn

Schwinn, the iconic bicycle brand, needed a consultative partner with a strong, technical background in ecommerce and digital marketing to provide strategic guidance, user research, UX and visual design for their website replatform project. Acumium's solutions for Schwinn have included a competitive analysis focused on user experience, usability, information architecture and brand messaging, a comprehensive user research

project including customer journey mapping, usability testing and surveying to get at the heart of Schwinn’s customer base and determine how they want to interact with the new website. Acumium was also chosen to provide creative web design services and to coordinate with their development partner to make their new website a reality, and providing them ongoing consulting around their ecommerce platform, user experience, and content.

Klein-Dickert

Klein-Dickert is a 100-year old paint contractor and glass manufacturer that specializes in large projects for commercial buildings, institutional and industrial facilities. After Klein-Dickert’s previous development partner went out of business, they sought to engage with a strategic partner with strong expertise in software development to support their legacy job cost system software application. They chose Acumium because

they needed a reliable partner with the technical chops to modernize the application and solve the pain points of their users. We've helped them uncover issues, dependencies, and technical debt, and continue to provide ongoing UX and software development support to address application enhancements, troubleshooting, and break-fixes of application issues.

Roastar

Roastar is a digital printer and manufacturer of specialty packaging.

Before Acumium, Roastar's website was challenging for customers and staff to create and manage projects, artwork and orders online. They wanted to give their customers an online order experience that is simple, informative, intuitive, and transparent.

Partnering with Acumium's UX and creative design team, Roastar significantly improved

their online ordering process through research, UX/UI design, usability testing, and visual design.

Roastar continues to work with Acumium professionals on conversion optimization and user experience to make their website experience even better.

Duluth Trading Company

When we met Duluth Trading Company in 2005, they were a modest catalog retailer with no online commerce in place. Not long thereafter and for 13+ years we've provided strategic web technology consulting and developed a custom, full-featured ecommerce platform. They are now a publicly-traded company and we continue to play a role as their technology and UX design partner.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the president and CEO of ListITapp Inc. We created a productivity app that helps realtors during the listing process.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Acumium?

We engaged Acumium to design our app for iPad and Android tablet devices. We also needed UI testing services to ensure the app was user-friendly and fully-functional.

What were your goals for this project?

When the engagement started, the app development was clumsy and basic. The solution was functional, but not intuitive. We wanted to improve the user navigation and experience.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found Acumium after working with local companies on the build.

Describe the project in detail.

The project focused on streamlining and overhauling the app’s appearance. We provided the team with wireframes and concepts. The team guides us through strategy, design, development, and storage solutions.

What was the team composition?

The team comprises 2–3 dedicated resources including the IT lead.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Acumium streamlined our environment, which dramatically improved the app. They’re now creating a marketing site to assist us with promotional strategies. The experience has been exceptional. We’re on our way to launching a first-class solution.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The team is always available. They fix each problem and answer all of our questions.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their knowledge and professionalism are exceptional.

Are there any areas for improvement?

If there are any areas of improvement, it would be on our part. We should have hired Acumium a year ago because the project would already be completed.
