What was the scope of their involvement?
AddWeb Solution has helped me with the technical requirements around the project, while also providing good design tips. I had my own ideas, but after speaking with them, we ended up completely changing the layout and making the site far more user-friendly, simpler, and to the point. AddWeb Solution had regular conversations with me before kicking off the project, which was a great thing about them.
How did you come to work with AddWeb Solution?
I was specifically looking for companies who had experience with Drupal, since I knew that would be necessary in order to achieve my goal. I searched on Drupal.org for development companies, looking for firms who were well-established on the website, and had worked on numerous relevant projects. Many of the companies that I contacted took a long time to get back to me, probably because I wasn't a large organization. I had a new idea but a relatively small project.
AddWeb Solution became passionately involved from the start. They were keen to organize a conversation with me as soon as possible, even though their headquarters are in Ahmedabad, India, and the time difference with the UK was an issue. This continued to be the case even after we started working together.
How much have you invested with AddWeb Solution?
The initial development cost with AddWeb Solution has been between $5,000 and $6,000. I have a responsive multilingual website with some advanced features, including the ability to add audio comments, recording via browser, searching for users learning a certain language, filtering audio clips by language, and unique user profiles. I couldn't have asked for much more without greatly increasing my budget.
What is the status of this engagement?
I started initial conversations with AddWeb Solution around November of 2015. The project kick-off was delayed because I needed to ensure that my platform would be available in numerous languages. Sourcing different translations took some time, and it was the responsibility of the companies that I hired for that purpose. The project went live in April of 2016, and right now we're ready to start more work.
