BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I do digital production and project management. When I worked with digital marauders, I was e-commerce manager for a small to mid-sized retail company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with digital marauders?

We needed a complete overhaul of our e-commerce business that had a focus on apparel and textiles.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We needed a content management system built on a Magento platform that would provide integration with our warehouse and inventory system. We had two brands that had to share one cart. We wanted a seamless shopping experience, and to be able to bring both brands back to one cart for checkout.

At the time, we were only engaged in email marketing. They helped us work on setting a benchmark against the industry and worked through design and interactive email messaging. We had a designer, a developer, and a project manager assigned to us.

How did you come to work with digital marauders?

Our IT person had a connection with someone that had worked with digital marauders in the past, and they recommended them to us.

How much have you invested with digital marauders?

We spent between $30,000 and $50,000 for the website. Then, we purchased blocks of time from them for further help.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in mid to late 2011.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We were always working on making the checkout process easier; users commented that it was easy to use. It was a lot of work to get it accomplished, but based on customers’ comments, we got there. We kept tweaking it according to customer feedback and as money allowed. Over the course of a year, we increased our revenue by four times. We went from $200,000 to over $1 million in the first year.

How did digital marauders perform from a project management standpoint?

I was doing the project management for our company and worked closely with digital marauders’ principal. They were able to meet deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about digital marauders?

They had the ability to listen to us and not layer too much of their own ideas. We did rely on them for industry standards and best practices. They went out of their way to work with us and to make sure that the message and branding were on point, especially since our principal was quite fickle about her brand. It was difficult to find something that would exemplify the brand as best as possible, but they were able to accomplish it.

Are there any areas digital marauders could improve?

I would have liked the development process to move quicker on some of the smaller projects. I know that the developer that worked on our project is no longer with the company. I understand that they had to prioritize since they are a smaller company.
