The Review
Feedback summary: 

Web development spend has decreased by 50%, while customer engagement has grown substantially. E Direct is responsive and efficient, and their structured project management instills confidence and trust. The team delivers high-quality designs that fulfill the initial requirements of the project.  

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We’re a group of five financial companies under one umbrella company. As head of marketing, I’m responsible for delivering all online activities for the five separate companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire E Direct?

We hired E Direct for web development services.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals were simple. We wanted to increase the quality of our existing websites, add new websites to our portfolio, and increase the online usage of our websites.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

After being let down by our current web development providers, we decided to search for a new vendor. We went through a tendering process, as we do with all projects, and E Direct consistently came out on top. E Direct also took the time to understand our business and goals.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

E Direct has brought our websites up-to-date with modern designs that are fully responsive. The team created new websites that fully explain the work that we do. They’ve also added functionality to our sites to enable customers to interact with us.

What was the team composition?

In all projects, Rudy (Founder, E Direct) is only a phone call away. He has a great understanding of the goals that we want to achieve as a business. From an advertising perspective, Navid (Head of Advertising, E Direct) has so much knowledge around online advertising and always knows the best methods to meet our needs.

Our SEO strategy is looked after by Sean (Head of Marketing, E Direct), and his team has consistently overachieved. Charlotte (Web Project Coordinator, E Direct) is my project manager and gives me complete reassurance that every project is on track. If things go wrong, Charlotte is the first to react. She’s always one step ahead of the game.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

They’ve been instrumental in increasing our online presence by developing websites with the bespoke functionality that we required. The added functionality has allowed us to speak more with customers, thus increasing our bottom line.

Through engaging with E Direct, we’ve reduced our web development spend by over 50%. This lets us engage in more projects than we had previously, and we’ve seen a massive uplift as a result.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project management is always on point, and it very much feels like we’re in safe hands with E Direct. When issues come about, the E Direct team drops everything and doesn’t stop until the issue is resolved.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

There are a lot of impressive things about E Direct, but the three things that stick in my mind are the quality of their work, their competitive prices, and their ability to understand our business.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I wish we had known about them earlier!!
