Feedback summary: 

The videos have been well-received internally and by key partners. The team communicates extremely well, and they made themselves easily accessible throughout the project. They met all deadlines, despite facing an ambitious timeline and client-side delays. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work for a chemical manufacturing company that specializes in food and beverage ingredients and other industrial applications. I oversee marketing in the Americas.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with The DVI Group?

We were looking to develop a video or series of videos that expressed who we are as a company to increase brand awareness. We wanted something modern that stood out as part of a larger marketing initiative that incorporated more digital content. This was the first video project we took on.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

When we first met with DVI, we were still figuring out what we wanted. They helped us clearly define and articulate our goals. We were originally looking for a single video we could use at trade shows and post on our site/social media pages, one that really encompassed our mission. After discussing this with DVI, they suggested we make two videos instead; one high-level introductory “teaser” video, and one that went into more detail on who we are and what we do as a company.

In the beginning, they interviewed staff members from different departments and took the time to get to know our business. Once they could comfortably describe our company, we worked with them created an outline of messaging and defined the key points we wanted to incorporate. They came back to us with three high-level storyboards that demonstrated possibilities for the look and feel of the project. Once we chose an option we liked, we started working on the teaser video, which was just a series of visuals with music. We then used that as a baseline to create the longer three-and-a-half-minute video, which incorporated interviews, voice overs, and other more involved features.

How did you come to work with DVI?

I met one of their sales representatives at an American Marketing Association function. They have a great reputation in Atlanta, and specialized in video, which made them an ideal partner. They had also worked with other chemical manufacturing companies in the past, which meant that they could understand very technical information and translate it into something more accessible. They people themselves were very open and creative, and made it clear that they wanted to get to know our business in depth, which we really appreciated. We chose them over two other companies we were considering for those reasons.

How much have you invested with them?

About $35,000 in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

started working with them in May 2017, and completed both videos by September.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We still have to formalize the release strategy and get internal approval on a few more specifics before socializing the videos. However, initial feedback has been great, and a very popular beverage company is currently showing our teaser video in their production labs.

How did DVI perform from a project management standpoint?

They have amazing communication skills. Everyone made themselves very accessible, and you never had to deal with navigating a hierarchy. If there was ever something we didn’t quite like how it flowed, they would go back and fix it without issue. We set ambitious timelines, and they always delivered ahead of schedule. We had a few delays on our end in seeking approval from our legal department and several other internal entities, since it was our first video project, but DVI was always accommodating. They made us feel like we were their most important client.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were adaptable and agile despite delays on our end, and didn’t stop working with us until we were 100% satisfied. They also challenged us to think outside of the box, and understood what our competition was doing so that we could stand out. They were phenomenal throughout the engagement. I’ve already recommended them to former colleagues.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I had zero complaints.

Feedback summary: 

The clear, creative video program will support the company's employees in their training, freeing up considerable working hours. The DVI Group’s receptivity to feedback, industry knowledge and impressive content suggestions continue to ensure a productive relationship. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work for the training department of a transportation company. I’ve been tasked with leading a group of about 20 people through a project to refresh a lot of our training materials.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with The DVI Group?

The DVI Group is moving our training program from a PowerPoint system where our instructors hand out manuals and deliver one-on-two training, to a learning content management system that delivers all the materials that students need without having to have an instructor present. Students also will have access to the new system on a full-time basis.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’re working with The DVI Group on a small batch of these training videos now, but we potentially will work with them on 400–500 videos. It’s a large project for our company. The videos include a host or instructor who delivers information that is then mixed in with everything from 2D graphics, 3D graphics, technical graphic drawings, and other components. Each of the videos DVI is making is 8–15 minutes long. We’re starting to work through a big topic list of materials.

DVI is pretty much doing this project end to end for us. We’re providing the assets to be filmed, including employees on our end, and DVI is casting actors and actresses for the roles that are not the people we provide. The host instructor is an actor; we decided that would be a better move for us. DVI is taking care of all of that. They’re doing all the graphic production, filming, and full support. Right now, we’re basically doing a lot of technical scripting and providing technical support for them so that they can interpret the scripts and know what they’re looking at.

The key reason we sought a third-party vendor for this material had to do with the changing demographics company. A lot of people will be retiring soon and will be replaced with younger people.

We knew that we couldn’t make a video that’s going to keep people engaged and interested and leverage modern techniques and graphic design because of that difference in age. Over a five-month period, we used our corporate vendor to build a couple of prototypes, and we noticed that all the creative ideas came from the minds of the subject matter group that was putting these together rather than the vendor doing that. We realized right away that our internal vendor wasn’t investigating our needs, but DVI did. They did a deep dive into our manual sets and our culture. They interviewed our employees. They did a lot of work to set the stage. And then they went away and came back with a bunch of creative ideas on how the information could be presented. That, for us, has been the biggest return on investment so far, because a lot of people offered to do the filming, production, editing, etc. However, DVI was one of the few companies that really understood what we needed on the creative side. To make a long story short, DVI did the whole creative process, and then brought back ideas and storyboards. They did a bunch of demonstrations and examples with different formats, and then we sat down, talked them through and refined their ideas to get where we are now.

How did you come to work with The DVI Group?

We went through a pretty laborious process to hire DVI. We started collecting information about national companies that could do this kind of work. We wanted to be able to work with them closely. We narrowed it down to about seven providers, and then we started with phone call interviews. We narrowed down those to about three to five and then we met with them and asked for their proposals. Early on in that process, I think the subject matter strongly felt that DVI was bringing the creative stuff to the table that we wanted and were interested in, and they were doing a lot of work upfront to research what we needed and what the best way to deliver the material was. There were cheaper options in some of the other companies, but they didn't have the impressive background experience in training videos that DVI seemed to have. We narrowed it down based on what we saw as their ability to scale up quickly and come up with the creative process that we were missing.

Some of the other divisions in our company saw some of the work and material that DVI was doing and how quickly and efficiently they could do it. Because of that, I think they’ve been sucked into at least one other project at our company where we had to film our CEO giving an introduction because we knew we couldn't do it internally.

What is the status of this engagement?

We brought The DVI Group on board the project in November 2016, though we were doing some investigating of them before that. We’re working with them now, and they’re contracted with us to do what we’re calling Phase 1 of this overall project — 108 separate videos, 8 minutes to 15 minutes long — over the next year. DVI might be able to work for us for the next couple of years.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The feedback has been amazing, and most of it has been glowing. The quality and production value of the videos themselves is amazing, but the concept also has been a game changer for us, and it has received a lot of attention. The videos free up a lot of our workforce, and they provide a clear and useful learning tool for our employees. The production value of what The DVI Group has brought to the table has been so far above what we’re used to seeing that we’re still trying to absorb everything.

How did The DVI Group perform from a project management standpoint?

DVI does a fantastic job with project management. To be honest, we haven't put them under a lot of stress with project management yet, because most of the limitations and deadlines are on our side right now. This is a big process change for us, so we’re going slowly and methodically through everything, trying to develop our critical path to success and make sure that we’re not spending money on something we don't want. DVI has been extremely receptive and flexible, and we have not put them under pressure for any kind of deadline. Whenever we do ask them for something, their turnaround is way faster than we’re able to process.

We meet about three of their team members in person quite often right now, and we also talk over the phone, email, and text. They’re very communicative.

What did you find most impressive about The DVI Group?

We think they have ESP [extrasensory perception]. I've been incredibly impressed with their ability to listen to our needs and absorb the material. This is the first time we’ve worked with a group that actually employs a researcher to understand our industry. It’s been amazing. The fact that they have these people and can bring them to bear on the project has made such a big difference. When we work with a third-party vendor, we typically have to explain something, they send us something back, we explain why it’s wrong, they send it back, we explain what could be better, and it’s this back and forth. Right now, with DVI, they are learning our industry as quickly as they can, and they seem to be able to absorb everything and spit it out right out of our brains. I’ve been impressed with their ability to tackle topics that, to be honest, took me 20 years to get my experience in.

Are there any areas The DVI Group could improve?

If DVI were a bigger company, that would be great. To be honest, the only feedback we have is how absolutely impressed we are and how we want to charge forward with them. We think they might need to hire, because they’re a scalable system obviously, and right now we’re almost prepared to give them more work than I think they want or would be able to handle.

Feedback summary: 

The CEO, investor team, and viewers at a recent conference have all had positive reactions to the videos created. They feel that the messaging was done in a much more sophisticated way and that the pace with which they got work done was exemplary. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Jvion is a cognitive clinical science company that primarily serves the healthcare provider segment. I’m the VP of marketing and strategic communications.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with The DVI Group?

We’ve grown exponentially over the past year and have even acquired another company. In that accelerated growth, there’s been a real need to realign our message and make it more crisp and engaging. I wanted to do that by bringing in high-quality professional video. For one thing, we knew we needed to make our message concise to be easily digestible. We needed to take a very difficult concept, cognitive science, and make it accessible. Within the healthcare community, we usually see resistance to any kind of new capabilities and new technologies. Because of this specific challenge, we needed to position it to be non-threatening and easy to adopt for our clients.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had two pieces that came out of this involvement: a corporate overview piece and one with client interviews. The two videos dovetailed together nicely. For the corporate overview, the project was done in collaboration with The DVI Group because of the complex nature of our work. They developed an initial script and we went through iterative phases. They came up with vision boards and storyboards that really brought to life our core concepts. We need to use very specific language and they did an amazing job with that. For the interviews, we had seven interviews with the C-suite. They did all the planning and managed all the logistics. We looked at the script and then married questions to the script so that the case study parallels the concept. The DVI Group worked with me to get some amazing comments and quotes. They covered all of the critical differentiators that we had worked so hard to articulate during the corporate overview. We will continue to work on using what they’ve provided in different ways.

How did you come to work with The DVI Group?

I went through a vetting process and looked at multiple firms. I looked in Atlanta to see who was really good at doing videos for businesses. I narrowed my search to three organizations and interviewed all of them. The DVI Group suggested that I come meet with them face to face instead of talking on the phone. Immediately, there was a sense of professionalism and service. I was late to the meeting because of Atlanta traffic but they had water ready and a great presentation prepared. That was tied to the projects they showed from their portfolio.

How much have you invested with The DVI Group?

We spent between $50,000 and $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in November 2016, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our CEO is extraordinarily pleased with the messaging that has come out of the videos. Our investor team is delighted. The initial reaction to both videos from the industry at the largest industry conference we had has been positive. They’ve told us that our message is now more sophisticated and concise.

How did The DVI Group perform from a project management standpoint?

They were fantastic, meeting the deadlines we set. We had a big trade show last week, so they had to work hard to meet our deadline. They did 12 weeks of work in six weeks. With the timeline, the amount of work, and the cognitive demands we placed on them, they performed at every turn. They’re a great team. I feel lucky to have them in my backyard and to have found them.

What did you find most impressive about The DVI Group?

They’re just a really good group to work with. They have an energy that helps to bring out your own creativity. It makes what can seem like a daunting project into a fun project. They brought a vision and a creative energy that helped bring out the best in our team.

It wasn’t just their video work that was impressive, but how they were able to leverage that into multiple platforms. One of the client case studies I wanted to do was with a hospital where DVI had already filmed, so they already knew the people. They had this mailer that they had created for the other client and it was so well done. That highlighted the excellence of their work and the client focus. They provide consultative expertise to each project, going beyond the deliverable so that you can add value to your business.

Are there any areas The DVI Group could improve?

I can’t think of anything.

They did work for the company my wife worked at, so she recommended them. I did research to find other companies and met with several of them, but I found that I liked The DVI Group the best.

I am an account manager for Big Red Rooster, a marketing agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with The DVI Group?

We don’t have a very strong video development team so we were looking for someone who could produce a video for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided them with the assets: storyboards, visuals, and the creative direction. The DVI Group then made all that into a live video for us. The video had animation and we gave them the license to make things work how they think best. We did five training videos and one promotional video on how to use a new drink brewer.

How did you come to work with The DVI Group?

One of our creative directors had wonderful things to say about them and we were looking for a premium production team. We have other production companies we use that are less expensive, but we needed premium-level videos for this.

They loved that they were all cohesive, smooth, and beautiful. The videos spoke to all the pieces that they wanted to talk to and got rave reviews.

How did The DVI Group perform from a project management standpoint?

I had one point of contact and it was very smooth. They used tools that were easy to understand and allowed us to quickly make edits. They were quick, efficient, and smart in how they delivered things to me. I really enjoyed working with them. They met or exceeded all deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about The DVI Group?

I wasn’t able to see them create something from beginning to end. We came up with the storyboard and artwork so all I saw was the production end, but they did beautiful work. They introduced me to each person that was involved in our project, which was great. I felt like I was part of their team too. It was a great experience and I would recommend them to anyone.

Are there any areas The DVI Group could improve?

No, I have nothing bad to say.

We’ve done scripted animated videos, scripted demonstrations with hired actors, and case study videos where we’ve gone on site and interviewed people at the hospitals that we work with. The first project was a three-minute long video that describes our approach and our care model, and how hospitals adopt it. It went into how it changes and improves the quality of care and experience for patients, and the efficiency of care at the hospital. That ended up being an animated video. I cannot compliment them enough on their approach and the way they listened and came back with three different storyboards with ideas that might accomplish what we wanted. We loved all three of them but went with one direction. We collaborated with them on the scripting and just loved the work they were doing. On that one, we hired some voice over talent and could not be happier with the end result.

How did you come to work with The DVI Group?

We were very diligent when looking for video production companies. The DVI Group impressed us from the start with their proposal. They really took the time to listen to what we were trying to accomplish and came back to us with a proposal that made it clear that they understood what our business objectives for the project were. That gave me tremendous confidence that they were going to focus their effort and approach from start to finish on making sure that we ended up with a final product that accomplished what those objectives were.

How much have you invested with The DVI Group?

We’ve done projects as small as under $5,000. The largest project was $25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’re not working on anything now, but we have a couple of projects on the horizon that we expect to work with them on.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have had tremendously positive feedback on the video content, and it has been able to help us get past gatekeepers and in front of executives that are extremely busy. Internally, the feedback has been very strong. They’ve done two animated videos for us and they’re designed to engage in a compelling way and explain what can be complex. The videos on YouTube get tons of views and people watch most of the video. The average viewing time is 70%, which for that type of video, is outstanding. The final product is very engaging for people who are coming to our website or one of our other media sites.

How did The DVI Group perform from a project management standpoint?

I could not be happier. They’re always proactive, extremely responsive, and communicate the details of what’s next. They’re always on time and are so thoughtful about understanding what our business objective is. Everything is so on point that we don’t have to rework things.

What did you find most impressive about The DVI Group?

Their creative vision and ability to help me, as the client, to visualize it and be confident moving forward with it, is outstanding. They have some tremendously talented designers. When we’ve worked at the hospitals, the camera teams are professional.

Are there any areas The DVI Group could improve?

I have no complaints. We’ve worked with them on 8 major projects.

Feedback summary: 

The video has been received by both executives and client viewers in a very positive manner. The video was picked up by the department's national office because of its quality. The client appreciated The DVI Group's great project management and that they consistently felt like an extension of the team.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I currently work for United Healthcare for the central region. I was working for Kaiser Permanente in the Georgia region when I worked with The DVI Group. I was the Regional Director of Marketing for Kaiser Permanente.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with The DVI Group?

At Kaiser, we worked with DVI for several years. Initially, it was a project where we were trying to produce a simple, short video to educate prospective members about Kaiser Permanente and the care that we provide within our centers. We created several videos in different formats to help educate our perspective members and also brokers about Kaiser, what makes us different, and the value of that difference.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Typically, when I was beginning to work on a video project, I would meet with them to share the goal of what we wanted to communicate through the video and how we would use the video. Sometimes the videos were used to start a meeting, and sometimes we sent CDs to prospective customers. Additionally, we produced a video that we were going to be using on our website as an intro video. After we met with them, they would come back to us with a concept.

Some of the videos told the stories of the care that we provide through the voice of our members and through our staff, both medical staff and clinical staff. In those cases, they interviewed our staff and edited it together with some B-roll that they shot in our facilities. In other cases, like the video that we did for the website, they wrote the script, drafted the concept, and then worked with us even on casting the talent, and then producing the video.

How did you come to work with The DVI Group?

They were recommended to me. They had done some work with Kaiser Permanente in the past, but were recommended to me probably when I first got there, so it was about seven or eight years ago. They worked with me on a project for convenience and I had such a great time with them that I continued to hire them. What I really appreciated was that every time I came back I got a new fresh idea for a video. They were always really current on changes within the digital world, how people were using video and different new concepts that we could test and utilize. They were always a great partner because they took whatever idea I had and made it better.

How much have you invested with The DVI Group?

We did $2,500 videos, where we actually would take an existing video and edit it to fit a format that we needed, like opening a meeting. We’ve also done videos that cost $50,000 where we had on-air talent, casting, and on-location shooting.

What is the status of this engagement?

We are no longer working with them because I am no longer at that company.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The feedback that I always got on every video I ever produced was overwhelmingly positive. They always exceeded our expectations as far as delivering an end product. Everybody from senior leadership all the way down to the recipients, or the viewers of the video, always gave extremely positive comments and feedback. We didn’t use the videos in any kind of a direct response format, where we would get hard data on open rates and so on, so we don’t have that. Some of the local videos we produced in the Georgia region would get picked up by the national office and get used.

How did The DVI Group perform from a project management standpoint?

They were great and would always deliver what was needed on time and on budget. They were really good stewards of my time and budget, no matter how demanding my request was. I became known as the one that would ask for these unreasonable requests, but they always came up with a way to make it happen. Again, great partners and project management in a way that it kept us on track but wasn’t annoying.

What did you find most impressive about The DVI Group?

They’re just a great team, really smart and very good at what they do. Like I said, there was no project too big or small. They just were my go-to team for video. They worked as an extension to my department and I really always valued that. Again, always did great work.

Are there any areas The DVI Group could improve?

Honestly, I can’t think of anything. Like I said, they were always cutting edge, they always came with fresh ideas, and they always exceeded expectations and met all of my unreasonable demands.

Feedback summary: 

The videos and commercial were completed ahead of schedule, and have received positive feedback from potential customers. The DVI Group was praised for their detailed project management and professionalism.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

LOMA is a life insurance trade association and we have 2,000 member companies around the world. Our biggest line of business is creating and delivering education programs for our member companies. I’m the Director of Learning Design and Delivery.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with the DVI Group?

There was a rule change in the retirement industry and it was going to have a significant effect on how retirement companies operate. It was very confusing and there was a lot of concern about it. In response, we were trying to create a brief education program that explained the rule change to a very broad audience. The material needed to be at a high level but presented in a new and engaging way.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The DVI Group created a series of 13 videos, about 2 minutes long each. We came to them with a fairly finished script that was broken down into those 13 videos. We didn’t have a specific style in mind since we wanted them to lead that discussion. They took the script and came up with three concepts. They were all a variation of experts speaking to the camera, along with heavy use of graphics. We chose one of the concepts they offered. The DVI Group did all the casting, figured out the location, and took care of the crew. Two members of our company were onsite during shooting for two days. The DVI Group then did all the post-production and we were involved in the three rounds of review. After we gave feedback, they updated the videos. We went back and forth a few times. The DVI Group also created a 40-second commercial. It was not intended for TV, but it was something we could show to potential customers.

How did you come to work with the DVI Group?

We’re based in Atlanta, so I was looking for a local firm. I had searched for a number of days using Google and found some candidates with impressive websites showing good examples of work they’d done. We contacted and met with four companies. They all understood what we were trying to do. They looked at our scripts and gave us some creative ideas. We chose the DVI Group because they came closest to our desired budget. In addition, they seemed to have a little more experience in dealing with education/training videos. Their ideas weren’t as off the wall as some of the other ones, which were overly creative at the expense of instructional design.

How much have you invested with the DVI Group?

We spent $50,000 to $100,000 in our project with the DVI Group.

What is the status of this engagement?

The videos are all done. The whole project, from the time we had a contract worked out, was probably about four weeks. It took a while to get the contract worked out.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s an unusual product for us. We incorporate video in a lot of our eLearning courses but we’ve never done a course that’s purely video. We normally sell one course at a time, but for this product, we’re selling these videos in bundles. We can also upload the videos into a learning management system or on a company intranet for training. Potential customers have seen the demos and we have received a lot of positive feedback. We don’t have any sales figures yet, but the commercial has been really well-received.

How did the DVI Group perform from a project management standpoint?

From a project management standpoint, the DVI Group was terrific. They assigned a project coordinator who was extremely well-organized. She kept an online color-coded log that showed the stage at which each video was. It was easy for me to see what was going on. That was great because every day I was getting four or five videos to review. It would have been confusing if they didn’t have that.

What did you find most impressive about the DVI Group?

The DVI Group was easy to do business with and very professional. I never got the sense that the DVI Group was a second rate organization. They were pleasant and they kept their end of the bargain. Overall, it was a good experience and they came in ahead of the deadline, which was very aggressive, to begin with. That was great for us because we needed the extra time. We needed the videos by the end of June and the DVI Group gave them to us a week early.

Are there any areas the DVI Group could improve?

I don’t think so. After the first couple of videos were shot and we got them to review, we had concerns about things like color and font choice. Those were things we should’ve asked for upfront. We asked the DVI Group to change certain things and they were good at explaining why they did what they did. Ultimately, we insisted on a few changes and they made them.

Although the video has not been launched yet, the client has been very happy, citing The DVI Group's excellent communication, project management, and flexibility.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Stonemark is a property management firm who manages apartment communities throughout the United States.

What is your position?

I am the director of marketing.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with The DVI Group?

We wanted to separate ourselves from other management firms by creating a video.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

They produced a script and did all of the editing. We chose to have actors so there wasn't any animation in this video. They did a phenomenal job of figuring out what we were trying to accomplish with this video and learning about our company, its culture, and what the relationship is between us and our clients. They developed a script from those conversations. We wanted to do something that was on the humorous side and they didn't disappoint. They developed a real winner for us. Their selection of actors and script writing were all great. It required very little effort on our end.

How did you come to work with The DVI Group?

I looked into a number of different video production companies and, once I had talked with The DVI Group enough, I decided they would be right for us.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

The project was between $10,000 and $50,000. We'd never invested money in producing videos. They really produced a phenomenal result. They took care of us and worked with us with the budget restraints we had. I don't think we would've ended up with the same results with another company.

What is the status of this engagement?

All projects are completed. I would like to work with them again. I feel like we made some friends as well. Our project had to go on a hiatus because of funds. They could have held us to the contract, but they worked with us.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

We're in a relaunch so it's not been showcased yet. I have shared it with people who are working with me who are peers in the business. The feedback has been "wow,", "what a great video," and just generally that it is very humorous and well-done.

How did The DVI Group perform from a project management standpoint?

The DVI Group did an excellent job and maintained great communication. I never felt like I didn't understand something. Being our first time doing something on this scale, they were great.

What distinguishes The DVI Group from other providers?

It's not often that you get in a partnership with somebody that you feel like is working to deliver and is working with you. They worked with us during the hiatus for about a year, which impacts their schedules. They did a lot to work around the situation for us, which meant a lot.

Is there anything The DVI Group could have improved or done differently?

No. If anybody called me and was thinking about hiring them, I would tell them to do it. They're an extremely creative group.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

They did some animation, and they also did some live production video of one of our plants.

How did you come to work with The DVI Group?

I found them online through a search engine. They came to be a good fit because of their process and their discovery phase. They really wanted to understand us, not just as a company, but what we’re trying to solve through the video or that particular project.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It was over $30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

All projects have been completed at this time.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

Thanks to the work The DVI Group has done, we continue to see big jumps month over month in the video views of the brand video. We have seen a significant increase each month.

How did The DVI Group perform from a project management standpoint?

The DVI Group was pleasant, helpful, and responsive. They brought in a project manager a little bit after my project, so they know the value of having a project manager.

What distinguishes The DVI Group from other providers?

I like the range of the different concepts that they provided.

Is there anything The DVI Group could have improved or done differently?

Overall, I think they did a great job. I wish they had brought on a project manager earlier but as I said, they brought one on so it seems like they figured out a project manager's worth.
