Feedback summary: 

The products developed by Cellaflora have become a source of growth for the business, with new users signing up every day. Their clean and intuitive interfaces have received great feedback. Moreover, the team was commended for their honesty and commitment to the task.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We are a package-software development company. We have designed an employee portal solution as well as a board portal solution.

What is your position?

I am the Chief Executive Officer of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Cellaflora?

We needed mobile development resources. We have a web development team in-house but not a lot of mobile development experience. Working with Cellaflora was a way of leapfrogging this and producing mobile apps for our software. Cellaflora has helped us create the mobile versions of two different pieces of software designed by our company.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

Cellaflora developed iOS apps for us. They were in charge of both the frontend and backend portions of the project.

How did you come to work with Cellaflora?

I found them on the web. I had also heard about Cellaflora from people with whom I worked in the past. I was using a firm in Indianapolis and was unhappy with their work. I reached out to Cellaflora and had a first meeting with them. I liked how they thought and how they approached mobile development. I decided to hire them as a result.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

The annual development cost is $120,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I have been working with Cellaflora for almost two years. The collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

Cellaflora has produced an amazing software which became a growth engine for my company. We've continued to sign up more customers through it. People have appreciated the clean and intuitive interfaces which Cellaflora's products seem to have. This has become a hallmark of our mobile presence as well.

What distinguishes Cellaflora from other providers?

I have appreciated their reliability. If Cellaflora's team promises to do something, they will do it. We were also told upfront about any technical risks. Cellaflora is made up of smart people. They're aware of the fact that they're very good and are very selective as a result. The only surprises when working with Cellaflora are of the good variety.

Is there anything Cellaflora could have improved or done differently?

Cellaflora is an expensive company. Cost is a factor that is typically improved, as companies scale up.

    Cellaflora is reliable, but there have been times in which we didn't build the schedule that we'd have wanted because of their other engagements. However, if Cellaflora agrees to something, they will deliver.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The redesigned site is completed and currently pending for launch. User feedback has been positive regarding its visual elements and performance, and Cellaflora receives excellent remarks for their professional services and technical expertise.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Twiddy is a property management company on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We operate more than 1,000 vacation rental homes, which range from four-bedroom beach boxes to 28-bedroom special event homes.

What is your position?

I was initially the SEO [search engine optimization] specialist, but I've come to handle everything web and digital marketing-related in the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Cellaflora?

We try to deliver hospitality services in the best way possible. The best thing we could do in order to enhance the clients' vacation time is to give them more time. Our aim is to help people plan and provide direct access to the home status, skipping the check-in process. This approach is aimed to help families start their vacation sooner.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

Cellaflora initially worked with us on an app project. Within the early stages of our project, we liked the communication so well that we decided to outsource some other web-based projects to them. They're working on our e-commerce site through, which we make rentals and sales, redesigning it.

How did you come to work with Cellaflora?

I searched in numerous places, looking initially for a local vendor. I reached out to some people in the design world whom I follow on social media and asked for help. I talked to perhaps a dozen companies, narrowing our choice to Cellaflora, which had the best approach during our conversation.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

The annual cost of their overall services is between $100,000 and $1 million.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Cellaflora in the summer of 2015. They've been very helpful to us, and we will continue to use them for other projects. Given the changes our company has gone through, we will become more engulfed in technology. We're not a software company, so it doesn't make sense for us to hire 10 to 20 programmers. We plan to keep Cellaflora on a retainer in the future.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

The site hasn't been launched yet, but I'm happy with how it turned out. It looked and worked great during our tests. We're planning to present it to some loyal users and get their feedback.

How did Cellaflora perform from a project management standpoint?

Everyone from the Cellaflora team has been professional, taking our business into account and providing a fresh perspective that we may not have considered.

What distinguishes Cellaflora from other providers?

They're very smart people, not just from the programming and design perspective. The way in which they've approached our particular business has been refreshing. We haven't seen this in every relationship.

Is there anything Cellaflora could have improved or done differently?

I can't think of anything with which we're unhappy.
