What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We recently launched our platform (two weeks earlier than anticipated), and it’s already enjoyed account sign-ups from a few event organizers. It’s gotten great feedback from different organizations who have highlighted it for its ease-of-use. On the internal side, we all think that the platform looks significantly better than our previous product. My in-house tech advisor also praised the code that it’s built on.
How did AE Studio perform from a project management standpoint?
They were amazing. They were supportive, even off the clock—they let me know that if there was any issue, I just had to reach out. They maintained such great communication and their time management was also awesome.
We had 15-minute standups every day and communicated through Clubhouse, a project management tool. They communicated priorities and updated me on project progress through Clubhouse.
Since I’m working to build my own team, I hope to adopt some of their processes since they were so effective.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They felt like a very personal partner. They catered their processes to the nature of our company. Although it’s a minor thing, we’re a “geeky” brand, so they made the experience really fun for us— like using Pokemon references for file names.
On the same note, they were extremely transparent and personable throughout the entire engagement. Our standups would involve anonymous feedback sessions, making sure that everyone was on the same page. And, if anyone had frustrations, we could talk about it.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No—they truly saved my project, and there’s nothing negative I have to say about them. They’ve really been great.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Give them the full scope of your overall goals, as a company. They’re extremely talented and have resources that go beyond what they formally offer.
