Feedback summary: 

The new website's sleek design and intuitive user interface have helped the company acquire €400,000 in value over one year. Codebuild's personalized approach, sophisticated development skills, and clear, non-technical explanations make the partnership both profitable and enjoyable.

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 and CEO of Collectorism, a website for collectors. It’s a marketplace where people can buy, sell, showcase their selection, and swap items.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Codebuild?

We needed help putting together a proper website for our web-based business.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They helped us not only develop the website and portal, but also refine our ideas. They designed the whole site and used Laravel for the backend. It was challenging to build a marketplace that didn’t look old-fashioned.

They also built a customized surface for swapping. When a user finds an item on the site and wants to swap it with another user, they can navigate to a platform we call the exchange room.

On the left, the user can see their items; on the right, they can see their partner’s items; in the middle, they can drag and drop the items they want to send and the items from the partner’s collection that they want to receive. They send this with an offer. When the other users receive it, they can either accept, decline, or modify it. It gamifies the transaction.

Codebuild maintains the site now. As we receive more funding, they also help us develop new ideas and features.

What is the team composition?

They provided full-service development, from research and planning to UI/UX design and programming. They had resources for every aspect of the portal design.

How did you come to work with Codebuild?

We went through a lot of developers, programmers, and agencies, but Codebuild was the only one that started by thinking strategically about the project. Other companies only sent us a quote. They seemed like robots who didn’t care about the product itself.

Codebuild asked us to sit down with them and discuss our ideas so they could understand what we wanted.

How much have you invested with them?

Over €100,000 [$123,200 USD].

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in December 2015 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We built a custom website from scratch and grew from nothing to a €400,000 [$492,700 USD] investment by the end of 2017. They made a huge contribution to this. Our growth and user experience feedback have been fantastic.

How did Codebuild perform from a project management standpoint?

Patrik [CEO & Digital Product Manager, Codebuild] oversees everything as a project manager. He summarized everything that was going on and helped me understand all the processes. He was really easy to work with. We use Jira and Trello to stay in contact almost 24/7.

What did you find most impressive about them?

As someone who’s not very tech-savvy, it’s hard to explain yourself to and communicate with developers. Patrik provides a bridge between the teams and the client. Working with them has been an absolutely enjoyable experience, simply because we don’t get stuck on the technical details that we might not necessarily understand.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Reach out to them and talk to Patrik. Don’t be afraid to talk to them, even if all you have is an idea. They can bring out the best in what you already have.
