WordPress and Front-end developers on-demand

Chop-Chop is a team of highly experienced web developers. Since 2010 we have delivered 5,000 unique projects for designers and agencies from all over the world. We work with those who need skilled web developers and appreciate the quality-first mindset.

Our story

Chop-Chop is the effect of years of development, countless hours of hard work and an army of people involved on all sides of the process. Ultimately: 5,000+ unique web projects completed, many of them widely recognized and awarded. Websites, web apps, stores and environments - you name it. If you've been online for the last decade - you've seen some of them. You just don't know it was us behind the web dev part.

Since 2010, when first generation iPhone was just out and responsive web design was a growing idea, we kept coding. Started as a relatively simple PSD-to-HTML service back in the day, we grew together with the web. We're web devs, after all.

Today, Chop-Chop has evolved into three specialized brands: Chop-Chop.org for wide, general development, Chop-Chop.agency for highly custom dev work, and Magently.com for Magento solutions. A 60-people-strong web dev studio altogether.

Feedback summary: 

With Chop-Chop on board, workflow pace has increased, ensuring the successful completion of 4x as many projects in 2016 compared to 2015. Their transparent estimates, direct communication, and error-free deliverables continue to boost efficiency and revenue. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a digital agency that designs and develops websites and other online projects for customers, including handling their marketing. I am the CEO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Chop-Chop?

We want to work with good developers who have high standards. We were looking to scale our client projects, make better estimates, and deliver them in a faster manner, so we partnered with Chop-Chop. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our internal staff is in charge of conceptualization and client communication. Chop-Chop has handled full development scopes for us.

We’ve worked on a number of projects with them, including a special effort for an online school. Chop-Chop provided custom frontend and backend development, working with WooCommerce and WordPress. These are the typical platforms we use, and our coding languages include HTML, CSS, and PHP.

We’ve used a lot of developers from Chop-Chop—usually 2–3 per project, depending on the scope. We’ve kept in touch with 3 lead developers—1 for each project.

How did you come to work with Chop-Chop?

We looked at a lot of companies when trying to find the right partner. I found Chop-Chop online and reviewed their services. I needed a partner who could scale according to our needs. I also liked Chop-Chop’s approach to estimates. The other companies we looked at only worked on an hourly basis, which was a problem for me since I didn’t know how they worked or what the quality of their deliverables would be. Their team was personable, and we could talk to them in a direct manner. We had some face-to-face meetings, which we hadn’t been able to do with other companies.

How much have you invested with Chop-Chop?

The cost of their work has been $30,000 or more.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Chop-Chop in June 2015, and the work is ongoing. They are the only partner we’re currently using for development projects. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since we’ve started working with Chop-Chop, we’ve been able to take on more projects, work faster, and scale our knowledgebase. They have broad skills in their area. Comparing our numbers, we’ve worked on 4-times as many projects in 2016 compared to 2015.

How did Chop-Chop perform from a project management standpoint? 

We’ve become accustomed to their team, and they’ve changed some internal processes in order to work with our customers better. Chop-Chop has a dedicated communications manager who is familiar with our projects. We have open and direct communication, and it’s easy to work with them and coordinate project management.

We have given Chop-Chop up to 15 tasks at a time on certain projects, and they handled all of them with no problems. If an issue comes up, we discuss it over Skype. Whenever Chop-Chop’s team couldn’t deliver by a certain deadline, they informed me ahead of time.  

What did you find most impressive about Chop-Chop?

I appreciate their way of working. Chop-Chop sees us as a partner and anticipates our customers’ needs. We’re not a number to them. I know their team, from the CEO to the marketing people. It’s been great to have a partner who can change processes in order to make my own work better.

Are there any areas Chop-Chop could improve?

We have identified some improvement points and are in the process of making those changes, so there’s nothing missing. For example, we wanted to have an environment in place where clients could see demos of the work and that Chop-Chop’s developers also could access. We’ve adopted GitHub in order to solve the problem and work faster.

Feedback summary: 

For this small project, the client is satisfied with Chop-Chop and their ability to deliver as they initially promise. The process of working with Chop-Chop was both friendly and straightforward.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our organization is called Better Collected. We're located in Copenhagen, Denmark, and we do online gaming including sports betting and online casinos. We're an affiliate, so we create websites that enhance the players’ experience when playing online. Then we collaborate with various betting companies. We try to give the users the best possible experience when betting online.

I am the head of the pilot plant. We do pilot projects and test out new ideas. If our small prototypes work, we then try and scale them.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Chop-Chop?

Chop-Chop helped us update our concept site called dailyaccas.com.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had this concept site called dailyaccas.com that we had run for some time, and we started to see some good traffic on the site, but it was old school. We needed something new and nice. Luckily we have some nice designers in-house. One of them designed a nice new layout for the site on PhotoShop, but we needed Chop-Chop to convert that into HTML and Javascript.

How did you come to work with Chop-Chop?

My colleague used Chop-Chop for a few previous projects. He was extremely satisfied with their performance, so that's why he recommended to use them for this specific project.  I believe it was Thursday that I got the recommendation from my colleague and I immediately went to the Chop-Chop website. There was this nice form that I could fill out with all the details about the website, how it should be set up, what kind of fonts to use, and what kind of frameworks are included. I could see the price for the project, how it would increase if I added certain features and decreased if I decided to make it more simple. In the end, I submitted the project. About an hour later, I got an email back from one of the guys at Chop-Chop saying that everything looked straightforward and they would have the project ready by the following Tuesday. As promised, on Tuesday I got an email from Chop-Chop to see the web page, how it looked fully developed and a link to download all the files. It was a perfect experience. Nothing needed to be done.

How much have you invested with Chop-Chop?

We spent about $240.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project was completed in three weeks from the initial point of contact.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’m fully satisfied with this specific project which is why I decided to take over some of the more advanced dynamic stuff that we needed for the site. Their task was just to set up the simple static website which I think for both parties made the whole thing easier.

How did Chop-Chop perform from a project management standpoint?

Perfect. There were no real issues, nothing we had to tackle. I would say that the communication was super friendly and super fast.

What did you find most impressive about Chop-Chop?

I haven't tried many similar companies, but from my experience, I can say that they were very fast and delivered a high-quality product exactly as promised.

Are there any areas Chop-Chop could improve?

On this specific project, no.

Feedback summary: 

Despite having their own web developers, this client is appreciative that since working with Chop-Chop, their website is now fully functional and updated.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We provide data protection to businesses. I am the Chief Revenue Officer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Chop-Chop?

We were making a new website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had some previous experience because we employ quite a few programmers and web developers on our own. We were trying to develop our website on our own, but it was very time-consuming and not very effective. One of our project managers for the new website found Chop-Chop and convinced us it might be a good idea to outsource the project. We all agreed to smooth things out and give Chop-Chop the responsibility of making the whole project from end to end. We have our designers, so we already had the copy and pictures of what we were trying to achieve and a description of what should be the outcome of the project. We sent all of it to Chop-Chop, and they gave an estimate of time and money. We agreed, and they just did the project.

How much have you invested with Chop-Chop?

It was close to $3,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Chop-Chop at the beginning of February/March 2016. The website has been running for six or seven months now.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The main thing I have noted is that before, when we were trying to develop the website on our own, there were constant crashes and it was a never-ending project. Since we outsourced it to Chop-Chop, the website has been working for more than six months. My only feedback statistic is that it wasn’t working before when we tried to do it on our own, and now it is working.

How did Chop-Chop perform from a project management standpoint?

There was just one person from our side who did most of the project management. We would make remarks and notes about the website, and she would relay that information to Chop-Chop. The changes would be implemented on either the same day or the next day.

What did you find most impressive about Chop-Chop?

What I know and have gathered from my friends involved in this project is that the estimate was very fair, it was just right. Chop-Chop determined the amount of money and time the project would take, and they did it within the budget and time.

Are there any areas Chop-Chop could improve?

I'm not sure they could have done anything differently because they were doing everything we asked them to do. All the changes implemented later on were our decision. The changes were not caused by any mistakes on their side.

Feedback summary: 

The value for their cost is what distinguishes Chop-Chop from other providers. They deliver responsive and high-quality websites at an unbeatable price.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the social media manager of Santa Monica Studio, a subsidiary of Sony PlayStation. We are a game developer. I look after all the social media and content strategy, including our websites and social media channels.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Chop-Chop?

I was trying to design a website and was having difficulty doing it on my own. Chop-Chop seemed like a really good solution.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Everything they’ve done to date involved taking a Photoshop file that I had created and turning it into a website. Our first project was for a game called The Order: 1886. We were doing a contest on our website and we needed to build a unique contest page. I designed the page in Photoshop, but I didn’t have the coding skills to turn it into a full website page. That’s where Chop-Chop came in. I tried them out, sent them our Photoshop file, and they nailed it. They produced an exact replica of the Photoshop file and turned it into a web page. It looked as good as anything anybody else could’ve done. A year after that, we worked on promotion for a game called Journey. Recently, they helped design a 1-page website for our video series, Santa Monica Studio Creatives.  

How did you come to work with Chop-Chop?

I’d come across Chop-Chop’s website in a Google search. They were also mentioned in other recommendation sites and I was really impressed with their work. Their pricing was rock bottom cost-effective.

How much have you invested with Chop-Chop?

Each project cost around $500.

What is the status of this engagement?

I first worked with Chop-Chop a couple of years ago, in November 2014. Since then, I’ve gone back to them a couple of times for similar projects, in October 2015 and March 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Anecdotally, I can tell you that throughout the 3 projects we’ve done with them, the website quality has been applauded by our fans and our team. We appreciate having a high-quality web page experience, particularly when we’re trying to recruit employees for our company. Having a company like Chop-Chop to help us execute that vision was tremendous. As far as statistics go, I don’t think the Google analytics or the visits really matter. Their job was to do the creative; our job is to get the traffic there.

How did Chop-Chop perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re flawless. The fact is, I live in California; they’re in Poland. They’re half a world away, 10 hours ahead of us, but they were still good at communicating. It was like being on a next-day type service. They didn’t respond when it was their night time, but they were really diligent with their communication. Chop-Chop was not charging a lot. However, their team still provided high-quality service and communication. That’s why it’s tough to complain about anything.

What did you find most impressive about Chop-Chop?

The biggest thing that distinguishes them is their cost. There’s really no one else who can take a Photoshop file and convert it into a high-quality HTML, mobile-compliant, and responsive website. It would look exactly as you envisioned. You get that level of quality and professional service for the cost that they’re offering. I think that their price is unbeatable.

Are there any areas Chop-Chop could improve?

If I’m being constructive, when they would give us the work back, there was a 10% or 15% room for error. There were definitely a few back and forth exchanges that needed to happen to get something exactly the way we wanted it. But that’s being super nitpicky. I can’t expect it to be 100% on a first delivery, especially in this kind of creative partnership. But if I had to nitpick, that would be it.

Feedback summary: 

Their communication skills and thoroughness is what distinguishes Chop-Chop from other software developers. Throughout the many projects they’ve partnered on, the client has never seen any problems with the work that Chop-Chop delivers.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Stun Design & Interactive does small to medium-sized marketing-style websites. We also do other things that aren’t related to websites such as print work, but that’s our main demographic. I’m an Interactive Director.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Chop-Chop?

We do a lot of frontend work here, so we’ve tried to hire people to do backend WordPress-type stuff. We were unsuccessful with finding somebody with the quality of work that we needed, so that’s why we contacted Chop-Chop, to do some backend work with WordPress.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

While working with Chop-Chop, we would go through all the design work and provide them with a final design file. Once we’d give them something to look at, we would open up a dialogue with them about what we can use to make our site the best that it can be with the technology that’s out there. We would lean on Chop-Chop to say, “Hey, do we need some JavaScript here? Do we need to integrate this into WordPress and use a plugin?” They were very good at recommending and walking us through that process.

How did you come to work with Chop-Chop?

I found them through an ad on a design showcase site. We’d looked through several different companies and I contacted a few. Chop-Chop was quick to answer, and their price was reasonable.

How much have you invested with Chop-Chop?

We’ve done some smaller things that would be worth a couple of hundred dollars, but we’ve also done some pretty complicated stuff. I think the highest would be around $1,700 to $2,000. The average cost estimate would be $1,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve done several projects with Chop-Chop. We started our last project with them in late July, and we finished it in mid to late August. The project took about a month once we got our designs to them because there was a lot of going back and forth to tighten things up.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

All of our clients have been completely satisfied with the work that has been provided. We’ve worked with Chop-Chop probably over a year, and within that year, we haven’t seen any problems with their work.

How did Chop-Chop perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re great at project management. When we first started working with Chop-Chop, there were more people that were involved with the project. I’d get an answer from a different person every time, but it wasn’t a problem for me. It’s never been a problem communicating; it would just be more than one person getting back to me. Now within the last six months, they’ve assigned three people to our account, and we only hear from those three people. They know our projects a little bit more intimately than before. They are very good at communicating even though we’re in a way different time zone. They’re in Europe and we’re in the southern United States, but I haven’t had any problems getting in touch with them or getting anything done.

What did you find most impressive about Chop-Chop?

Their communication skills are top-notch. They know how to ask the right questions. They’re very thorough, and they won’t let things slip by. That’s one thing that’s been very beneficial to us because we want to focus on the design and do the best design that we can possibly do. When we show them our designs, they are able to say, “Hey, look, this isn’t going to work responsively or we can make it work, but it’s going to cause a slower loading time.” They catch all the details as far as the development end goes.

Are there any areas Chop-Chop could improve?

It would be nitpicky, but Chop-Chop gives you a range for a completion date. I’ve never really had any problem with that, but I would like for them to be more specific about when the project will be completed.

5.0
