Feedback summary: 

Centogram does high-quality work and remains in constant contact. Users like the app, saying it looks good and is easy to navigate. The team requires minimal oversight, is incredibly responsive, and is cheaper than almost any other mobile vendor.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the director of marketing for a B2B service provider.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Centogram?

We needed a partner to develop an app that would better connect our service and sales teams.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We came up with requirements and wireframes together, and Centogram built all the technology and reporting around the solution. They also created the logo and did other design services. The app pulls local business information that our service team evaluates to identify specific services that could benefit the potential client. The data is then integrated with our CRM and given to the sales team.

Centogram build the mobile app from scratch for both iOS and Android, and they currently handle the updates and maintenance. Since they first created it, we’ve gone through numerous iterations and feature additions, such as Dynamics integration.

What is the team composition?

We work with Centogram’s owner.

How did you come to work with Centogram?

We searched for a local company that had the mobile capabilities we needed. We used this project as a test case and were pleased with the results, so we’ve worked with them ever since.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in June 2015, and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Working together has been extremely successful. The app looks great and is easy to navigate. User feedback is almost always positive—I’ve never had any issues or questions about the usability.

How did Centogram perform from a project management standpoint?

Our main point of contact is incredibly responsive and fixes any bugs quickly. If we ever have questions, we’ll hear back from him in the same day, sometimes within an hour. We’ve talked in person a few times and have meetings whenever necessary. We mainly communicate through daily emails.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their turnaround times are good, and the cost is great. They’re a smaller shop, but I get the same service I’d get from a bigger organization.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

They’re a good choice. They need minimal oversight, communicate well, and are easy to work with.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Third party clients love the look and feel of the app and the revenue increased from $100,000 to $2.5 million. Genuinely caring about the product, Centogram went above and beyond to meet all needs, while their proactive approach and reasonable rates earned them favorable referrals.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the COO of Prspctr, LLC. We're a business solutions company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Centogram?

We wanted to make it easier for business people to refer each other in less than 15 seconds, so we were looking for a company to develop an app for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We asked Centogram to build an app that aggregates data and can send qualified referrals in real time through a system that people can manage themselves. They built an app for iOS and Android that allows our clients–small and medium-sized businesses–to manage the referrals for their industries. Centogram delivered an incredibly robust app in a reasonable timeframe and for an affordable cost.

What is the team composition?

We mostly work with Jerod (Owner, Centogram).

How did you come to work with them?

It was a referral.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent between $100,000–$150,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in January 2016 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our revenue was about $100,000 before we had the app. This year, we're on pace to make about $2.5 million in revenue. Our clients are happy and say the app is easy to use. As small and medium-sized companies, our clients are proud to have a tool that meets their specific needs.

Centogram is very proactive in terms of updates on both the Android side and the Apple side. If we have any challenges, they resolve them within an hour.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

They finished the app three months earlier than we had planned. We use email, text, occasional phone calls, and Basecamp to communicate. We also personally met Jerod, who is not only an IT genius, but also deeply cares about the success of the product.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I've dealt with some smart people in the IT world, but Jerod has the head and the heart together. He took our complex idea and produced something that is beautiful and easy to use.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I had a remarkable experience.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Come to them with a clear idea of what you want and they will deliver a great product. If we had been more prepared, the process would have been even faster.

Feedback summary: 

Centogram meticulously tracks documents and records, facilitating effective project management. Their products haven’t crashed once since going live, and the end users enjoy the interface. They expertly manage large projects and have a proven track record of excellent service.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the vice president for N.A.L. Company, a family-owned and -operated paperboard protective packaging company. We manufacture corner protectors for load containment and stabilization.  We also produce laminated and non-laminated chipboard sheets commonly used as slip sheets, tier sheets, pallets tops and pallet bottoms.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Centogram?

We needed a branding partner to help with our graphics and package and web design.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We worked with Centogram to define the project scope and figure out how to combine computer programming with our actual process. They then developed different model platforms that range from PCs to iPad integration mobility on forklifts. They built both a mobile app and a web app—before we were just using Microsoft Excel. Some of the software is done in Drupal.

Operators can use the iPad cameras to scan QR barcodes and manage production and inventory control. Centogram also integrated Bluetooth scanners so that the iPads can scan from 15–20 feet away, meaning the operators don’t have to get on and off the forklift. They set up automated emails that get sent out depending on product thresholds and also created a portal that allows clients to see the progress.

What is the team composition?

We worked with one developer.

How did you come to work with Centogram?

I met them socially and then researched them when I began looking for a partner. Some of their past clients said their engagements had been a great success, so I hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $200,000–$1 million.

What is the status of this engagement?

We partnered in September 2015, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve been able to collect vast amounts of information that we can use to track work and update customers. Instead of having to wait a day to provide customers with product information, we can give it to them immediately. Plus, we haven’t had a single bug or crash since launching.

Two clients currently use our customer portal, and they’ve had great success. It helps them align their systems and audit inventories in real time to know what we have on the floor. Because of Centogram’s system, we’re now able to do same-day shipments.

How did Centogram perform from a project management standpoint?

Centogram has clear and effective project management. We use Basecamp to track the project and record documents and decisions.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re versatile and knowledgeable. They listen to what we need and create effective solutions. The partnership has been successful, and we’ve developed a good friendship.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Lay out your entire project and then talk with them about the whole scope. They’re good at dividing a large project into smaller, more manageable deliverables.
