Web Design for Trade Organization

 
Web design
 
$50,000 to $199,999
Project summary: 

The client is a professional trade organization representing members of the electric components industry. It needed to redesign an old website and improve ease of access. eCreations was selected to build a WordPress-based website and manage data mapping. The project was finished after about six months, in August of 2014, and eCreations is continuing to update/improve the website.

Feedback summary: 

The client is extremely pleased with the work delivered by eCreations. User feedback has been very positive and user visitors continue to increase. The client was particularly impressed that eCreations was able to design so many features not normally found in WordPress, plus charging a competitive price all the while. eCreations is highly recommended to others.

"They found ways to achieve results in the WordPress environment which aren't typically handled by the system. eCreations was very creative, looking for solutions to a lot of different aspects, from plug-ins to other elements needed to make everything work."

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

The Electronic Components Industry Association represents various members of the electronic component industry, from manufacturers to distributors, and independent sales represenatives.

What is your position?

I am the Senior Vice President. I am responsible for our website, as well as memberships, marketing, communication, events, and so on.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with eCreations?

We had an old informational website which needed to be redesigned. The key requirements were ease of access to our data and a good look-and-feel.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

We wanted to pick an environment which would ease the loading of content by our staff, so we decided to use WordPress. Aside from this, we wanted to have a website which could display conditional content based on various roles (membership vs. non-membership, for example). It needed to have key features like an interactive forum, a directory, a newsfeed, and many other elements which aren't normally found within WordPress.

Another challenge was a back-office system which we've tried to communicate with. This didn't work out so well, not because of eCreations, but because we lacked the proper application program interface for the task.

We also had to do a lot of data mapping, importing member data from our back-office association management system. It was a big project overall.

How did you come to work with eCreations?

We work with a creative agency in Phoenix, which led us to them. We interviewed a number of other companies, ultimately choosing eCreations.

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

The first phase of the project had a cost of $75,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started our work at the end of 2013. The initial completion of our project was in August of 2014. eCreations' portions of our work were done within six months.

We're continually fine-tuning the system. We're now entering a process of adding new features and content to the site, including our member profile information, which needed some tweaking. We're continuing to work with eCreations throughout these updates.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

The most important goal was improving user experience. We didn't have specific metrics for it; results were assessed anecdotally. We've received a lot of positive feed-back from our users. We keep track of user visits, which continue to grow. The site is quite user-friendly.

Budget was another consideration. eCreations was within budget the whole time. They've performed above expectations.

What distinguishes eCreations from other providers?

They found ways to achieve results in the WordPress environment which aren't typically handled by the system. eCreations was very creative, looking for solutions to a lot of different aspects, from plug-ins to other elements needed to make everything work. I would say that one of the biggest reasons for choosing them, aside from their competitiveness in terms of price, was that eCreations was easy to work with. We didn't have the necessary expertise in-house in order to scope out the project and do technical designs. It was a collaborative process in which eCreations was more eager to engage in than a lot of other developers we talked to.

Is there anything eCreations could have improved or done differently?

Thinking through how things work is something that both our companies could improve on, looking back at it. Sometimes, I should have challenged them to think more about the impact of some of our requirements. We didn't always know that, if we asked for XYZ, we would be impacting something on the other side. It's as much to do with our lack of technical expertise as it is to do with eCreations' efforts. We could have spent more time talking about some of these cases. We mostly communicated through conference calls, with few face-to-face discussions, which also contributed to the situation.

Web development
 
Confidential
Project summary: 

The client operates a marketing services firm and a business-to-business [B2B] publishing firm operating in numerous industries. There were numerous business needs, such as fixing a QR code system, e-book uploads/management, and deploying digital training materials. eCreations was initially selected to complete the QR code project and has worked with the client ever since.

Feedback summary: 

The client is extremely satisfied with eCreations. Various small projects are completed very quickly and efficiently as soon as they arise, which helps the client maintain competitiveness and stay within budget. eCreations was particularly praised for its willingness to go above and beyond in its search for the best solution, even if that means working beyond the billed hours. The client highly recommends eCreations to others.

"eCreations works with us during weekends and after-hours without charging us extra to make our results happen. They do everything to ensure that we are a satisfied customer in the long-term, which is important."

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

The first company for which I utilized eCreations is called Producers Inc. It is a B2B high-tech marketing services firm working within aerospace, secure telecom, oil and petroleum, chemicals, medical devices, and other industries.

The other company is a B2B publishing firm with three national brands. We operate within numerous areas, including transportation and the worship industry.

What is your position?

I am the owner of both companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with eCreations?

We needed help in fixing a QR code system which we were using for a healthcare client.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

eCreations did a spectacular job of making our QR system work, and we've worked with them ever since.

They've completed numerous small jobs for us. For example, we recently had eCreations upload an e-book to our website and place it within a primary position so we could send out e-cards using it.

We've deployed a semester's worth of training promotional e-cards earlier this year, for a series of pilot training clinics across the country. Programming and scheduling the deployment of the files took half a day at most, which was impressive.

How did you come to work with eCreations?

They were referred to us by someone.

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

Their hourly cost is $125, but we've completed small jobs which could have even run for a quarter-hour. This is very cost-effective in my point of view. We've worked on numerous projects and our budget varies depending on the scope. eCreations is reasonable compared to other companies I've researched.

What is the status of this engagement?

We have an ongoing relationship. Our most recent small job was completed yesterday.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

If they don't know something, eCreations will not be happy until they've done the research and found the answer to our question or challenge. When I first came across them, we were having an issue with a malfunctioning QR code system. It was a nightmare situation in which they spent way more time than what we were billed for in order to find the reason for the problem we had. We gave them a strict budget for this, and eCreations stuck to it fully.

How did eCreations perform from a project management standpoint?

In our particular business, everything comes with a do-it-yesterday mentality. We needed someone who can work quickly, efficiently, and get the job done without rehashing tasks. I don't think I've ever worked with a company as responsive as eCreations. We aim to be expeditious and extremely detail-oriented. Their team has been a perfect fit.

They're always available to us when we have a question or want to discuss new trends, things that could help us achieve greater search engine optimization, or anything else that the current project might entail. They come up with suggestions and new implementations, keeping us at the top of our form.

What distinguishes eCreations from other providers?

Their willingness to drop anything and assist us distinguishes them. We have a longstanding relationship and eCreations has always been there for us. We work in industries that don't allow us a lot of flexibility in terms of time. eCreations works with us during weekends and after-hours without charging us extra to make our results happen. They do everything to ensure that we are a satisfied customer in the long-term, which is important. Their owner provides the customer service that he would in turn want to receive from another company.

Is there anything eCreations could have improved or done differently?

Nobody's perfect, but I can't think of an improvement area for them.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We're a technology company specializing in security systems, card access control, and CCTV cameras.

What is your position?

I am the senior administrator.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with eCreations?

We wanted to improve our SEO and reach the top of search results. We initially used GoDaddy and similar services, but we wanted more interaction from our website. We wanted to reach out to more potential customers who were searching Google or Yahoo for our services.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

We've now finished our second web design project with eCreations. We also wanted to have a phone app which customers could use in order to request services from us. eCreations designed and developed it for us.

How did you come to work with eCreations?

I'm not sure how we came to work with them. I think that they've been in touch with our company since 2006.

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

The total development cost, from our first web design project to our current one, has been upwards of $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our first website redesign with eCreations had been done in 2006 or 2007. The second one was done in 2013, and our app was developed in 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

We have access to Google Analytics in order to gauge how many new and returning customers we have. These numbers fluctuate, given the nature of our business; but from looking at our reports, I can see that we've had an overall increase in business.

Customers have reported that they came across our business by looking at our web page. It is more attractive to the eye than what the old one used to be.

What distinguishes eCreations from other providers?

They're always available. We can call any time and tell them what we want, what our current idea is, and eCreations will bring it to life. We have had a lot of back-and-forth sessions during which they've made an effort to come up with what we were requesting.

Is there anything eCreations could have improved or done differently?

No, there isn't. eCreations has always done what we have asked them to do.

The client is extremely satisfied with the work done by eCreations. Business has increased by approximately 35-40% due to the improved sales functionality and overall web presence.

"We'd previously worked with five or six other web design companies. All they were interested in was getting a lot of money from us. eCreations was different. They stuck by our side and helped us every time we had a problem."

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Valley of the Sun Heating & Cooling Supply is a national distributor of LG and Goodman air conditioning systems. We work mainly with hotels and also offer parts for our units.

What is your position?

I am the general manager of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with eCreations?

We needed assistance in revamping our website in order to better assist our customers.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

eCreations made some optimizations for our web platform. They set up a better shopping cart and redesigned our website in order to improve its performance.

How did you come to work with eCreations?

We chose them based on our initial meeting. I was impressed with the organization level of their workplace and with their owner in particular. I found him to be upfront and very honest. He initially addressed me as Mr. O'Hara, and I appreciated the formality. We'd previously worked with five or six other web design companies. All they were interested in was getting a lot of money from us. eCreations was different. They stuck by our side and helped us every time we had a problem.

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

The total cost of their services was around $22,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project was started a couple of years ago. It has been completed, but eCreations continues to maintain our website and e-commerce platform.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

I estimate that eCreations has increased our business by 35-40%. Our sales and web presence have gone up significantly.

How did eCreations perform from a project management standpoint?

They completed the project in a timely manner, which increased our business sales tremendously.

What distinguishes eCreations from other providers?

A lot of other web developers we've worked with would push for project changes after we'd started working with them, in order to get more money. eCreations has not done this. They let us come to them with requests. They do make recommendations, giving pros and cons for any decision, but they don't aim for maximizing their fee.

Is there anything eCreations could have improved or done differently?

I can't think of anything. From the people who answer their phones, to their development team, they've all been fantastic. They always return our calls, even when they're busy, and they stand by what they promise.
