What was the scope of their involvement?
We told them what we wanted which was a new site and a catalog of all of our products. We have three different families of products and we wanted to be able to show that on our site.
After the kickoff, they created a flow chart of the different processes and everything we wanted on the site. Then, they began with the design process. They showed us the layout of different pages on our site. They showed us the design through a link, and even though it wasn’t programmed yet, it was really cool that we could see it as if it was a site prior to development. We had a few comments for them about very specific things, and they made those changes within a couple of weeks. They sent us the link again and after we approved it, they began the development.
We had asked for an admin panel where we could manage all the information on the website. We wanted it to be really easy because our marketing team would be the ones to maintain the website.
It has taken a little longer than expected because from our side, it has taken us longer to finish all the photographs that we need for our products as well as the technical data sheet information. Because they understood what we needed very quickly, their team delivered efficiently. We thought that we were on time with taking our pictures and making the sheets, but we realized we were very behind when DaCodes told us they were almost ready for us to upload those things. Other than that, it has been great.
What is the team composition?
When they were developing the design content, we were in touch with three people including two designers and the project manager. We were also in touch with the salesperson initially who gave us the quote and then put us in touch with the project manager. I believe there were multiple developers involved, but the developer that is in charge of the admin panel is the one that we are in touch with.
How did you come to work with DaCodes?
They are located in the same city as us, and I had heard of them before. They were recommended to us. We received quotes from three or four companies.
I had seen the different websites that other companies had developed but I liked the style, images, and quality of DaCodes. They weren’t the cheapest option, but I loved their portfolio of what they had previously done.
How much have you invested in them?
We have spent about $6,000–$7,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in May 2020, and our engagement is ongoing.
