The client approached us to investigate the reasons behind the low conversion rate and high bounce rate on mobile devices. Our second goal was to produce a new visually attractive user interface that would allow integrating a new logo.

Having analyzed the data, we came to a conclusion that the website does not adapt to mobile devices, so we decided to develop a new user interaction strategy. As a result, we created a

consistent pass-through navigation and added an option to quickly order pizza from any page of the website. Additionally, we created an interface that easily adapts to desktop, tablet, and smartphone.

AGENTE improved the experience of the data pages, making them easy to work with. Their hardworking team worked collaboratively, completing work on time. They’re skilled in their field. Customers can expect a team that manages well and remains on top of work.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a product owner at Code Blue Systems, a custom software development shop. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AGENTE?

We have a few different software systems they worked on. Our company works with substantial data-intensive programs, and we needed the designs to be able to utilize and view data within the same screen.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

AGENTE built the UX/UI design for our different systems, all from scratch. Some of the work involved replacing old software, but for the most part, it meant building a smoother and modern experience. For the UX component, we gave them a rough draft of specific wireframes, which they based their work off of.

What is the team composition?

At times, we had a project manager and 4–5 developers.

How did you come to work with AGENTE?

We found AGENTE when we were researching design studios.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested between $150,000–$500,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began the work with AGENTE in January 2018. We are finishing up and should be done by the end of August.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

AGENTE took pages with a large amount of data and information and made them lighter. They’re now easy to work with.

How did AGENTE perform from a project management standpoint?

The team at AGENTE was phenomenal. They are excellent at managing projects and making sure that everything is completed. We used Figma as our collaboration and communication tool. We also used email and Skype as needed.  

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were willing to work with us, even if it meant changing their processes to match ours.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. During big projects, there are always going to be adjustments, but it was great.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have a clear vision and provide information going into the project. This helps them have a picture of what they need.

AGENTE exceeded expectations, delivering quality products. Their communication style was a noteworthy element of the engagement. Their team is skilled in design as well as development. Customers can expect a reasonable price team of developers.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of Karma Development OÜ, a peer-to-peer SME leading platform that uses blockchain.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AGENTE?

In 2017, we hired AGENTE to build a website for our ICO. Our challenge was to have a modern and clean platform delivered quickly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

At that time, we had one of the few legal ICOs. We had a lot of legal reviews from different lawyers from countries all over the world. It was compliant with all of the countries where our investors were located.

There were two tasks. First was the ICO website that would involve investors and track the progress of a token sale. The second involved designing an alpha version of the platform itself. It would function as a peer-to-peer cross-border lending for small businesses. Our team put together fast sketches that described the information architecture and prototype. Once we were both in agreement about the prototypes, AGENTE completed the visual design, which we tweaked.

After the mockups were ready, their team began development using HTML and JavaScript. They also integrated the frontend of the peer-to-peer platform to the API on our backend.

What is the team composition?

We worked with around four people. There was a product manager, account manager, designer, and frontend developer.

How did you come to work with AGENTE?

In 2013, their founder was a student in my special business course for CEOs of digital agencies.

How much have you invested with them?

I believe it was around $25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with AGENTE in September 2017, and the engagement ended in February 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

AGENTE accomplished all of our goals. Since the ICO was completed, the website is closed. The platform itself is continually evolving. Once we had enough personnel in-house, we shifted the development of the interfaces internally. We work in sprints of two weeks, updating the peer-to-peer platform regularly. We have kept the general style AGENTE designed.

How did AGENTE perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management style could improve. I was the CEO of a digital agency, so I know how difficult having a good project management team can be. There’s a lot to focus on, depending on the amount of current and previous projects. Considering this is a common issue for digital agencies, they perform well. We communicated 24/7.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their team is full of styling experts. They can take a minimalistic view and make it look contemporary. Their work has global appeal.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their product involvement could improve. When I speak to Andrei (CEO, AGENTE), I tell him to start his own product within the startup because they have enough resources.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

In terms of price and quality, AGENTE is one of the best groups we’ve worked with.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m an executive at Constant Energy capital, a financial technology lender.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AGENTE?

AGENTE has worked on numerous projects, but we originally hired them to revamp our website. We wanted a new UX/UI and brand as well as some one-off design work.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

AGENTE completely redesigned our website, developing the new UX/UI from scratch. They had us fill out a comprehensive questionnaire to figure out what we wanted and what the overall branding approach would be, such as fonts, colors, and imagery. I also pointed out a few websites I liked and what design aspects I wanted them to incorporate. From there, they initially worked in HTML because we weren’t sure how we wanted to deploy it but did later work in WordPress. We continue to partner with them on small design projects.

What is the team composition?

We had one main point of contact who had a team of designers and developers.

How did you come to work with AGENTE?

A friend recommended them. We looked into AGENTE and a few other companies and hired AGENTE because of their portfolio, price, and ability to work on a tight deadline.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent more than $40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from November 2018–June 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They worked quickly and accomplished my vision for the site. After telling them what I wanted, they built the website to my specifications within the first or second round. The partnership was so good that we plan to continue working with them.

How did AGENTE perform from a project management standpoint?

We used various tools to communicate, including Skype and email. English isn’t their first language, but the project manager skillfully identified areas of concern or potential miscommunication and made sure next steps were clear before beginning a task.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They worked quickly and were able to meet tight deadlines, even with the large time difference. The team also offered a competitive price.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’re able to do WordPress development, but it’s definitely not their biggest strength. Their design and HTML work are phenomenal, though.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Have a budget and timeline, and make sure that’s communicated clearly to both sides. Be aware of potential language barrier issues, although AGENTE is good at working around those.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the founder of Justreachout. We help entrepreneurs pitch and secure press coverage on their own without a PR firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AGENTE?

We needed a better conversion rate from our website and a more aesthetically pleasing design.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

AGENTE redesigned and redeveloped our site. We started off by discussing the specific business goals we had around improving the design. We went through all of the pages we wanted to revamp and the goals for each. The AGENTE team created an information architecture diagram for each page, and we provided multiple rounds of feedback on those. From that, the team developed wireframes and started coding in HTML, building the backend with Ruby on Rails. We used Sketch and Envision to develop and share designs, as well as Photoshop.

What is the team composition?

We spoke primarily with a project manager. We had a main designer that I communicated with sometimes and two or three other designers behind the scenes. I also corresponded with their CTO.

How did you come to work with AGENTE?

A mutual acquaintance recommended them, and we got in contact. I prefer a word-of-mouth reference whereby someone vouches for the quality of their work. Once the partnership we kicked off, I was impressed with them.

A big deciding factor for me in hiring them was that they could not only design the site but code it. I didn't want just a design firm; I needed a firm that could build a functional final product. That combination is hard to find.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $30,000–40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from August–November 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

There’s no comparison between the quality of our old site and the new one. We’ve at least doubled our conversions, and we now have proper demo pages that are helping to boost our conversion rate even more.

The workability and usability of the site has also improved. We used to struggle with the inability to make changes to the site ourselves, but now we can handle it on our own. With the new site, we don’t have to ask the development or design team every time we need a change—which frees us up to experiment and grow our company without those limitations.

How did AGENTE perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated with the project manager almost daily, who relayed our feedback to their team and sent us weekly task updates. She would inform us if anything was running behind schedule and give us revised timelines. She was very responsive and they did a great job. For the more complicated items, we’d communicate directly with the designer.

She would inform us if anything was running behind schedule and give us revised timelines. She was very responsive and they did a great job. For the more complicated items, we’d communicate directly with the designer.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Collaboration is always easier when the vendor is located close by. AGENTE is abroad so that wasn’t possible, but we knew that when we hired them. The founder flew out to meet with me once. Their English is also good, given it's their second language, but you have to spell things out a bit more to make sure feedback is clear.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Often, a projects final cost ends up being higher than the vendor’s original estimate. You’re going to have a lot of feedback, which takes more time, and you might add things over the course of the project. I would caution people to be sure put everything in your original scope. Try to think of what you might want added in the future so that they can account for it at the outset.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder of JustReachOut.io, a SaaS that helps small business and startups gain media exposure through pitches to journalists, bloggers, and influencers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Agente?

We wanted an outside vendor to completely re-design our website and internal platform.

What were your goals for this project?

We sought to increase our conversion rate on the public-facing website and improve engagement for our current customers in our internal platform.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We spoke to several vendors, and Agente stood out because they can do both design and development and are goal-driven. There aren’t many vendors that can work with a specific business metric in mind.

Describe the project in detail.

We first conducted a few calls with Agente to discuss our goals and the process and timeline. Within the first two weeks, we received mockups of the initial UX for the public-facing website. We moved on to a round of feedback on the UX, and once that was complete, we moved to design mockups and review on those. Once we were satisfied, we started work with responsive versions and then the final development.

What was the team composition?

We worked primarily with a project manager, along with two designers and two frontend developers. I’m told there was a QA resource behind the scenes.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Within two months of launching the redesign, our conversion on the public-facing site tripled, which was our initial goal.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Our project manager was very responsive. We received questions and updates from the team every few days. The process was seamless and the team was extremely efficient.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

It's exceedingly rare to find a firm which can design, develop, and drive business metrics. We knew we were in good hands because they could develop everything they designed.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, we’re very satisfied.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the chief strategist and chief business development officer at Aggregion. We are a blockchain-based platform with a focus on intellectual property licensing. We enable large copyright holders to license digital content, either as B2B or B2C. It is an end-to-end distribution chain of digital content.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AGENTE?

We hired AGENTE to develop our new website from scratch.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our corporate website had gone through three iterations, each with different designers. But none of them met our needs. It’s a very abstract website ideal in that we don’t produce anything you can touch or take a picture of. Our site needed to be minimalistic and pretty at the same time. We also had to consider a quick turnaround time so that we could market to investors and clients.

I presented AGENTE with some general notes for a structure, and I trusted them with the rest. We decided on a WordPress system with one main landing page. After we launched the main page, they added extensions, including an about page, a case study page, a wallet feature

What is the team composition?

I communicate only with a project manager.

How did you come to work with AGENTE?

In our search, we sought a group that understood English and would be able to build a site that appealed to our target audience in the United States. We looked for a reasonable price and a team that shared our ideal of what constitutes a good design. AGENTE seemed to specialize in simple designs, which attracted us to them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began in April 2018, and our main landing page was launched in May. We have remained in communication with them as we build out our other pages.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

This new website truly represents us far better than its predecessors. We're taken much more seriously and receive far better responses from our potential clients.

How did AGENTE perform from a project management standpoint?

They are very responsive and professional. Every aspect of their work, including the hourly rate, is detailed and explained to us. I changed the scope of the project several times, and they took it all in stride.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They had a strong grasp of what our goal was for the end user. That was vital to the success of this project, and our previous vendors didn’t have that same understanding.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t pinpoint anything major enough to say it warrants improvement.

Any advice for potential customers?

As with any project, it’s important to clearly articulate your objectives. That was especially true in our project because there is no reference for what we’re trying to do. There is no standard. The more precise you can be with your own goals, the more AGENTE will be able to help.

The project manager was agile and communicative; if anything changed during the process, she made sure everyone was on the same page. We spoke almost daily, and she always gave clear and concise answers. The whole team was available and receptive to feedback.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were efficient and carefully considered our brief to create the best design possible. They paid attention to even the small details to make something that was cohesive with our overall brand.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

We’d highly recommend them as a design agency.

I’m the founder of a financial startup platform that helps small and medium-sized banks extend their business online. Our team consists of financial professionals and software engineers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AGENTE?

We wanted to provide the best UI within a limited budgete didn’t have UX/UI resources in-house.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

AGENTE helped us develop designs and mock-ups for our web and mobile platform. Initially, they converted our wireframes from Sketch to HTML and CSS, including multiple responsive designs. They also did a brand book and color scheme.

What is the team composition?

We worked with two designers, a project manager, and two frontend engineers who did CSS and HTML.

How did you come to work with AGENTE?

I was looking for somebody who did work for banks, so a friend referred me to AGENTE. They’ve done a lot of work for some of the fastest-growing banks in Russia.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent more than $10,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

The whole process took about three months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Our end customers love the design. In this industry, well-planned designs are not that common. When AGENTE provided mock-ups and designs, I felt that everything was done properly. The colors they chose for the branding was also appealing.

How did AGENTE perform from a project management standpoint?

They were pretty flexible about adjusting their schedule and helping us achieve our goals. For example, they expedited some work when I needed to show certain new features to my customers.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We got an awesome design on a moderate budget.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could improve by getting more familiar with American culture.

Feedback summary: 

AGENTE’S mobile app and web deliverables fulfilled all expectations and received 80% positive user feedback. Their brand strategy reached the specific target audience. The program features step slide scrolling, a cutting-edge technology that ensures users read critical data in slide presentations.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a founder of S3ntigraph, a small blockchain startup. This specific project is owned by Tobius Group.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AGENTE?

I needed an outsourced agency to develop our website and build a prototype for our mobile app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

AGENTE handled the entire design and development process for our new app and website. The mobile app is consumer-facing. It provides details, links, and other resources related to our products and shows how they can be used. It’s essentially an alternate user interface for our website.

Developers programmed the site using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and jQuery and wrote a related white paper. The team helped define our branding strategy as well. We collaboratively designed our logo. They consulted us on the color scheme and site placement to attract more users. I provided all the necessary content and instructions. AGENTE brainstormed and implemented everything else.

What is the team composition?

AGENTE assigned 4–5 resources for our project. I was the sole contact from my company’s side. They provided a mix of project and product managers.

How did you come to work with AGENTE?

I considered using a few other teams found through online research.

How much have you invested with them?

The project cost around $5,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with AGENTE between January–March 2018. Incorporating our feedback throughout the project extended the initial timeline.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

AGENTE built a fully functional site that met my expectations. I would rate them nine out of ten. Eighty percent of users have given us positive feedback, compared to 10% negative and 10% neutral. That negative feedback resulted from users’ lack of familiarity with our complex technology, specifically a component that AGENTE called “step slide scrolling”.

At a specific page section, vertical scrolling freezes. The scroll becomes horizontal until all the slides have been finished. Following that presentation, you can continue scrolling down again. Users thought this was a bug and kept refreshing the page. It’s a new feature most people aren’t familiar with. Otherwise, everything has been satisfying.

How did AGENTE perform from a project management standpoint?

We always communicated in real time through Telegram. AGENTE’S turnaround time is in the 10-minute range. S3ntigraph is very much an international and demographically-diverse service. Since we work with people from all over the world, we were comfortable using this tool.

The timezone difference between Russia and our location in New York caused minor hurdles. Any lags we experienced were because of this geographic discrepancy. Otherwise, everything worked well in terms of management.

What did you find most impressive about them?

AGENTE’s balance of quality services and competitive pricing made them the best fit for our project.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Having representation in multiple time zones could improve their services. If they plan to expand internationally, they’ll need resources in all the relevant time zones. We spent a lot of time waiting for feedback due to this limitation. Had they had the same working hours, we could have finished faster. It took me eight hours to respond to their requests for more information.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My company is True North Business Exchange. We’re a financial services platform for small businesses. I’m the CEO and co-founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Agente?

We needed some contract UX/UI work for a mobile app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The project was to translate the business logic of our financial services platform into a mobile app design. They worked with our project manager on that. I was not the product owner, but I ideated the concept and created the business model. Our CTO was the project manager lead on it, and he’s the one who worked principally with Agente. He’s no longer with our company, so I’m working with them now as well.

It was a greenfield project. We provided the concept for the app, and they turned around wireframes, art design, and so on. A little of their development was used when there were some custom controls that were made, but we have our own in-house developers who did most of it. I should also mention they put together our pitch deck. They did UX/UI design work, general design work. There was a little bit of iOS development, but just for the custom controls.

It’s an application for buying and selling US small business financial securities. That is not a product that exists, so we were dealing with the challenge of the user experience and generally the product ontology of it. They have a guy named [Vladimir] Gorz [Creative director, AGENTE], who’s extremely skilled. He’s just a fantastic artist and good at rendering ideation into a visual representation.

How did you come to work with Agente?

It was through a referral from our then-CTO. I considered other firms, but I was happy with the work Gorz had done on the pitch deck before that, so we went with them.

How much have you invested with Agente?

I would say probably $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in October of 2016, and the relationship is ongoing. We’ve scaled it back based on where we are in the project. The bulk of the work has been done. Ultimately, we need to have our own UI/UX team in-house, so that has changed the nature of the relationship. We’ll continue to engage them when we need their services.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’re very professional. You give them a project, and they quote you a price and get it done in a timely fashion. There’s a major time difference between San Francisco and Belarus, but other than that, the impact was positive. Gorz did really good work.

We’re in alpha phase right now, so we’re not yet live. We’ve gotten great feedback from the people who are testing it. The investors and other people who are beta testing it for us have said it’s very sleek and smooth, which is exactly what we were looking for.

How did Agente perform from a project management standpoint?

They performed pretty well. We brought them on temporarily into our Slack team. We used Dropbox, InVision, and Zeppelin.

What did you find most impressive about Agente?

The one thing I would highlight is that Gorz is a really solid artist. He’s very creative, and he added a lot of value to the project.

Are there any areas Agente could improve?

No.
