BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a real estate company. We do short- and long-term rentals, homeowner association management, and real estate sales. I’m the CEO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Dog and Rooster, Inc.?

The short-term rental industry is evolving at the speed of light. In order to be competitive today, you really have to have a very good website. It’s got to look great, be super functional and easy to work through, and mobile-friendly. If you’re going to book a room (or buy anything online), you want it to be seamless from either your desktop or your smartphone.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to increase short-term rental sales with this new website. Dog and Rooster accomplished that for us.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Observing the problems with shift management, I decided that introducing a bespoke website might be the best solution. I contacted Dog and Rooster, as I had worked with some of their people before. After preliminary consultations, I was convinced that they were the right team for the job.

Describe the project in detail.

Dog and Rooster developed a bespoke shift management website. With the new website, our employees and machines function according to the correct skill set, taking into consideration numerous variables like 24-hour operations. The whole production process is almost totally automated; we can predict possible obstacles and find countermeasures ahead of time, avoiding any lost time or productivity.

We continue the collaboration. It took us a while to stop using manual tools and informal communication for managing the shifts, but all of our processes are now based on the new, bespoke software. As we collect feedback, we present it to Dog and Rooster so they can add new functionalities to the system.

What was the team composition?

The team included a creative design team, a professional programming team, a detail-oriented QA team, and a project management team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What outcomes or results can you share that demonstrate progress and/or success?

One of the biggest pros of working with them is their constant will to develop the best product possible. They do not hesitate to inform you when you are wrong and propose better solutions. The result is a website that helps you achieve all the business goals you pursued when beginning the collaboration. Our bespoke website was introduced a few months ago, but we can already say that the workflow has significantly improved and down times were reduced to a minimum.

How effective was the project management?

I usually talked to the project manager, who supervised the development team working on our product. The communication was always effective and I felt informed about the progress on a daily basis. When I wanted to talk about technical details, there was always a possibility to discuss them with particular developers, as they all spoke clearly. The whole development process was smooth because of the agile website development principles applied.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We had a lot of collaboration and communication. Sometimes face-to-face communication is needed for these projects, but their tools, knowledge, and solutions bridged this gap for a successful project.

What tips or recommendations do you have?

When beginning the collaboration with Dog and Rooster, don’t think about the final product. Try to present the problems you want to solved and your business goals. They have invaluable experience in analyzing your exact needs and transforming them into a working software product.
