What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
Transforming designs into a Sencha theme takes a lot of CSS experience and technical “know how.” It’s not easy, but their graphic design and programming skills were excellent.
While the new theme has not been rolled out yet, the Sencha template that they designed four years ago was highly successful and appreciated by our clients. Its advantages are clear when compared to the standard template that you get from Sencha. You can easily see the different elements of the application, such as buttons, because they are colored in a different way. They put a lot of effort into building a user-friendly template. Rather than just preparing a design that looked nice, they invested in usability.
How did Codaxy perform from a project management standpoint?
They’re precise and experienced, they deliver on time, and they communicated more than I expected. We have a weekly call with the project manager and exchange a lot of information through email. When responding to us, they try to summarize what we’ve specified in their own words to ensure that they understand what we want.
At the very beginning, the client template didn’t look as I expected it to because we hadn’t communicated clearly. After going through a few iterations, they always improved on my feedback. Now the client template looks even better than what I had expected.
What did you find most impressive about them?
What sets Codaxy apart is their combination of coding and design skills. Sometimes you buy a nice template, but don’t have anyone to implement it. Since we can purchase everything from the same company, the results are so much more interesting. They use the graphics that they developed. It’s like a complete package.
Codaxy is brilliant because they offer comprehensive project management, design, and development support. We know how development works, and we appreciate the knowledge they put into the project. We trust them.
Are there any areas they could improve?
They have many developers, but only one main designer. They should try to hire a few more designers to have additional talent, alternative views on the same topics, and a variety of realizations. If they keep using only one designer, they risk all the applications looking the same. He’s brilliant, but he has his own style.
