The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m co-founder and head of business development in Peersoft - Softwarehouse which enhances our partners with tailored software solutions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire EFEKT - UX/UI Agency?

We were looking for a partner that would help build UX/UI for our customer’s search engine. We were responsible for front-end & back-end. We wanted to help our customer end to end and we knew that for the sake of having a successful B2C product we need Product Design.

What were your goals for this project?

We had some initial workshops with our customer where we outlined some major features, we were able to start working on some of the back-end but still, we have a load of doubts regarding user flow and UX in general. Our main goal was to have all mobile&web screens accepted&ready to develop. We had a whole roadmap of the product, so we needed designs to squiz into the timeline.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

EFEKT has a good reputation in our local market. We chose them because of their vast expertise in design, the track record of successful projects, and their perfect understanding of working with Software companies.

Describe the project in detail.

We were approached by a company with a vision to create a search engine gathering thousands of brands from all around the world. He started working with some UX but he was really disappointed with the outcome and pace. He asked us if we can help with Product Design as well. We arranged a meeting with Simon ( partner in EFEKT) and we felt that they knew what we were trying to accomplish more than anyone else. As I mentioned we had some roadmap and user stories in a backlog. EFEKT helped us to transfer them into wireframes, build a clickable prototype and then design a whole interface even with icons or motion design. Our front-end developer worked closely with designers to make sure that we have implemented everything pixel perfect.

What was the team composition?

In the team, there were 3 designers and Project Manager. The engagement was roughly for 4 months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Their designs and overall site generated positive reactions. What we know our client managed to build B2B partnerships with well-known fashion brands once they have seen the site. Since the launch of the e-commerce, traffic is visible. We got to these results much faster and efficiently than we would’ve on our own thanks to their experience in designing digital products.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Our scope has been changing constantly, but EFEKT has been flexible and patient The communication has been great. Designers we worked with have always been available for our questions. At each planning, we agreed on user stories that we want to cover in certain sprint. At the end of the sprint we had an internal demo when we presented the outcome to our customer. Our communication was mostly by Slack and they were using Invision to present designs and get feedback.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was extremely happy that we chose EFEKT and our customer was absolutely satisfied with the results. They were very professional and flexible, adapting solutions to handle technical challenges on our development side.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We were satisfied and would work with them again which is happening right now, to be honest.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m a product developer in a Swedish company Zyax AB. In Zyax, we are passionate about technology development and innovation. Zyax aims to develop a system that becomes the heart of the self-thinking energy-efficient smart home. There are many fun technology gadgets to fill the home with today, but they do not always speak so well with each other. We began our technology revolution with the development of a truly competent heart and brain. Different apps for controlling your lights, heating and security system are not needed. One app is all it takes to become energy aware and control your home!

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire EFEKT - UX/UI Agency?

We wanted to create a solution for owners of energy-efficient smart homes. We trusted in EFEKT to build outstanding user experience and user interface experience.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed a team to support us in defining our requirements, screens, architecture, designs, workflows, and other elements related to developing our solution. Our goal was to enter the market quickly with our MVP. I believe the main goal was to help us put our ideas in order. We had loads of features and we didn’t know how to put everything in one piece, not mentioning having good usability.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were recommended Efekt by common partners. We knew that we would need to have a native mobile application and desktop solution. We got a recommendation from our partner that it’ worth considering EFEKT to take care of this Product Design stage. We had an initial meeting when we discussed the idea. I have been very impressed with their work. They roughly estimated the budget and we started to cooperate.

Describe the project in detail.

Our idea was to create a possibility to connect many branded devices into one HUB, which connects controllers and devices with wired or wireless solutions like Zigbee, Z-Wave or Bluetooth at once. EFEKT was responsible for Web&Mobile design. It required a lot of User Research, the discovery of existing solutions and working a lot on combining all technical requirements into something user-friendly. We had ongoing meetings, demos, exchanging feedback. While the bulk of the project was complete, they continue to make minor updates as requested.

What was the team composition?

We worked directly with Simon- Partner in EFEKT and Przemek- Senior Product Designer. I know that apart from that there was a Visual Identity Designer and Motion Designer who helped with some animations.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We don’t have specific data about Revenue, Customers because we are still in the middle of the development phase. We shared Product Design with our internal team and in general, there was very positive feedback. We believe that adding to your company’s portfolio SmartHome solution will give us a visible edge in Swedish market.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

From time to time we had a face-to-face meeting but mostly our every week our Project Manager set the scope for upcoming sprints. EFEKT invited us to their Slack so it helped a lot in terms of exchanging information. Designs were presented in Invision which was great to understand better how it’s gonna look. at the end.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team at EFEKT was knowledgeable, dedicated, and committed to success. They felt like part of our team. I’m aware that this project was sophisticated in terms of technical requirements and sometimes scope has been changing but EFEKT was very flexible. Whenever we had to push more scope to the development team, they always delivered on time.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The designers in Efekt do insist on their design which sometimes leads to discussions. I do believe these discussions lead to a better end result where we could combine everyone's ideas and thoroughly work on the designs.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m Senior Developer and Project Manager in Blast Lab. We are a team of 30+ dedicated people who bring the technology 4.0 revolution to life! With extensive experience in software and hardware development, we focus our everyday efforts on delivering great products.

We focus on: Internet of Things systems, M2M communication, Cloud Computing, Android and iOS native mobile applications development.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire EFEKT Agency?

We approached EFEKT for our Hardware& Software IoT project. There were responsible for a full Product Design in a Web and Mobile Application.

What were your goals for this project?

The ultimate goal was to make sure that we all are on the same page. We knew that building a whole system will require a lot of development so we didn’t wanna burn our client’s money by many changes a lot into development.

That’s why we emphasized that UX/UI stage is crucial. Clickable prototype and the accepted interface was essential for us.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I asked for a referral from people in the IT industry. EFEKT has been recommended as a company that understands creating digital products and works constantly as UX/UI partner for Tech companies. We met with Simon (partner in EFEKT) and felt that he was someone we could have faith in.

Describe the project in detail.

EFEKT started the UX/UI design process with a proper understanding of technical requirements, user stories in the backlog and features which we were aiming to build. Then they build architecture information with a user flow which helped us to understand the whole project from a bird’s eye perspective.

After all of the requirements were established, they built interactive mockups and wireframes, which we later implemented in a Software phase. It was a really close collaboration between our customer and us.

What was the team composition?

We worked mainly with 2 guys from EFEKT.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

I believe that the main impact of our collaboration was the fact that our customer was very satisfied with the outcome of a Product Design part that EFEKT took ownership of. I cannot share any specific numbers of this project due to NDA.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

I was mainly responsible for a whole project, but we were all available on Slack and often EFEKT has been talking directly with our customer so it helped me a lot as well. Mutually each week we were discussing what is required.

From time to time we had face-to-face meetings. Projects were presented in Invision where we could track progress and resolve all issues regarding UX/UI. They were very accessible and responsive throughout the engagement.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They matched our expectations. We're very happy with their willingness to take the time to understand the product and technical requirements. What’s more the personal relationship with them was fantastic.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with them. For sure it is now the first company I will reach to when starting another project and in need of UX/UI specialists.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m Senior Product Owner in FAMOC (Enterprise Mobility Management platform). Established in 2006, Famoc provides a portfolio of industry leading solutions for the mobile device lifecycle management market, enabling any number of smartphones or network devices using a variety of operating systems to be centrally and remotely managed, over the Internet.

Additionally, Famoc is leading the way in MDM/EMM for the mass market, vastly improving mobile transaction security in mobile banking solutions, and offering handset and web-based end user self care solutions for mobile service providers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire EFEKT Agency?

We wanted to upgrade our user experience, user interface in our main system. We were implementing some new products into our overall ecosystem so that was a good moment to think more about usability. We wanted a partner which could help us with that. This is an ongoing cooperation.

What were your goals for this project?

My main goal as a product owner was to fasten the process of delivering certain features that we had in a backlog. I’m aware that prototyping on the design phase is much quicker and cheaper so we were able to discuss new ideas with all stakeholders efficiently.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were looking for UX/UI partner who might work for us. We interviewed a couple of agencies before narrowing the list to EFEKT. We have conducted first trial engagement and it all went smooth.

Describe the project in detail.

We are working together on different projects but what I could say about the process that at the very first EFEKT is trying to understand main goal of the product to make sure that the team is aligned with each other. We are usually spending some time gathering requirements and then EFEKT works on user flows, creating wireframes and going through various iterations of visual design. The last stage is handing over all deliverables for our in-house development team and being in touch if anything needs to be explained for our dev. team.

What was the team composition?

We worked directly with the designers and a project manager. EFEKT invited us to their Slack so it helped a lot in terms of communications.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

As mentioned above, we work on various projects so it’s kind of hard to outline particular outcomes but in general, definitely speed of implementing new features increased. Awareness of design in our organization has raised as well. I believe we think more about users.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They're very responsive and proactive. I really like that they’ll push back when they really feel something will improve the user experience. They always met our deadlines which was very important for me as a Product Owner. We used Invision to deliver our feedback and check progress of work.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They have a very solid design team. They came up with some interesting design angles and had some very creative flows. They work with a lot of different clients from various markets, so they take the best of best practices from different places in order to see how they can apply them to a new domain. That was clearly visible when we have done one completely new project with geo-localization employees by GPS.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I didn’t have any issues with them. It’s great to have a design company that’s engaged.

We set a couple of targets including: - to increase the number of inquiries from the B2C market - to upgrade the process of sending graphic projects from our customers. to raise our brand awareness across clothing&shoes brands to increase our annual contract value build an innovative solution for our B2B partners

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

After meeting with several companies we compared three major inputs. Previous experience, Cost, Timeline. Afterward, we were convinced to work with EFEKT.

Describe the project in detail.

We started with with kick-off meeting where all team members of both parts met and we settled our main goals and vision. Later EFEKT explained the design process and we had workshop which helped us to understand what are we trying to build. We were brainstorming all features of the mobile application and prioritized them into what is most important for version 1.0. Once we have done that, we received wireframes which were foundation of our digital product. We could use a clickable prototype without a line of code to get a feeling of user flow. Later on, we successfully went through User interface phase where we exactly knew how our product gonna looks like.

What was the team composition?

I was in touch with Simon ( Partner, EFEKT), who assigned dedicated designers.

We were very satisfied working with EFEKT. They had awesome ideas how we can boost our business through digital solutions. We gathered unanimously positive feedback from our customers and current business partners. I think that we could build a competitive edge in our industry.

On a day-to-day basis we were in communication with EFEKT. They have been available for meetings at different times. That was really important for a project delivery and it showed us that they were determined to launch a product according to the timeline.

I was amazed by how they think about business. They are not just designers but more entrepreneurs who are trying to build products that will help you to grow. Throughout the engagement, they were highly professional and made sure the cooperation went smoothly.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, nothing to mention. They were a good partner, and we hope to work with them again in future projects.

EFEKT Agency really understood what I was trying to do and executed well based on those ideas. They have been one of the agencies which delivered the scope in a short span of time.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I didn’t really have bad experiences with them. Nothing that would require escalation. EFEKT constantly interact with me, in order to ensure that nothing was missed.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO at Moodroad.com. Moodroad is a fashion search engine gathering thousands of beautiful brands from all around the world for online visitors to explore. We aspire to present trends and products that will reflect clients' frames of mind and emotions.

We created personalized searching paths to lead visitors to relevant items and dream purchases. Moodroad.com was born out of a belief shopping can become a simple and meaningful experience.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire EFEKT Agency?

We had an IT development team, but required designers to create unique experience. We hired EFEKT to design a modern, high-fashion platform.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create meaningful shopping experience supported by AI which recommends products according to moods or past purchases. My main goal was to gather professionals in different fields of expertise. Our platform operates in the B2C model, so we were aware the design needs to be compelling. Yet, it was not only about beauty, but creating exceptional user experience.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We kicked the project off with a different designer, but after 2 months we haven’t seen satisfying progress. I was introduced to the EFEKT team and we met face to face and talked everything over. There were a lot of things that I liked about them, including their attitude, process and engagement. All their deliverables were on time and on target.

Describe the project in detail.

Moodroad.com as a product was described above. EFEKT was responsible for the design and delivery of the interface. We worked together to establish certain concepts and built the UX/UI based on that. They had a lot of solutions that we thought were perfect for our needs and goals.

What was the team composition?

We interact with the founders of the agency and their UX/UI team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

I don't have any metrics set up at this point, because we have launched recently but we do have great feedback from our internal team and first B2B partners. As a startup, we had our internal roadmap of the product and estimated time of launch, so having an outstanding Product Design was a very important piece to start the development as soon as possible. The pressure was high, but EFEKT managed to deliver everything according to the plan.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Every 2 weeks we had a Demo and Sprint planning which EFEKT regularly attended. What I appreciated most was their high dedication and engagement in those meetings, sharing their experience from previous projects or current trends.

EFEKT cooperated directly with my development and branding teams, so, fortunately, they were self-going. They are very flexible and reliable, which are some of the great parts of our relationship with them.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

As mentioned earlier, in the early stage of our project we ran into some issues within the design area, primarily related to communication, timeliness and quality of deliverables. After connecting with the EFEKT team it was clear we're on the same page from day 1, as to What we wish to create and How & When we wanted the project executed.

Morever, we all felt throughout the process that the EFEKT team went far beyond agreed and scheduled tasks with brilliant tips and even business advice. Most warm heartedly recommended!

Are there any areas for improvement?

Nothing I can recall. I honestly can’t see any downsides in what we have created and achieved with their invaluable contribution.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m a CEO of Wrappit - The first outdoor smartphone controller designed to fit every sleeve and handlebar. Use Wraapit when it’s hard to pull off the sleeve to check smartwatch or reach for the phone from the pocket. There's no need for taking off your winter gloves, you can keep your hands on the handlebar to control phone calls, messages, navigation, music, and many more. It's maximum resistant — waterproof and works in low temperatures (-20°C /-4°F) when most smartwatches or phones freeze and lose their power fast.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire EFEKT Agency?

The main challenge was to create a visually appealing interface of the sports watch according to very strict requirements from our hardware team. I hired EFEKT to help us crafting a great UX/UI experience for our users.

What were your goals for this project?

Our strategy was to launch a Kickstarter campaign to gain brand awareness before our launch and gather money to accelerate our production. My intention was to solve my headaches regarding having great usability. I had a list of user stories that we had to include in our version 1.0. To launch a successful campaign on Kickstarter we had to make high-quality mockups with an interface and short commercial animation showing all the features of our watch. That all has been done by EFEKT.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I’ve heard about EFEKT from a Software Development company which they cooperate with. I was said that EFEKT has strong knowledge of building digital products, startups so we arranged a meeting and from the very first conversation, I knew that they will be a good fit as a UX/UI partner.

Describe the project in detail.

We came up with an idea to make a digital watch that will be durable and convenient to use in sports such as skiing, cycling. With my hardware team, I managed to build a working skeleton but there was absolutely lack of interface and thinking about user. EFEKT helped me create from scratch great interfaces that gained a lot of presence.

What was the team composition?

I worked with UX designer, UI designer and Motion Designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Once we had the green light, the project moved very quickly. I was pleased by how well they did in a short time frame. The whole project was very complex because requirements from my hardware team were pretty sophisticated but the results were really satisfying. EFEKT was able to understand my vision and they were present in meetings with the hardware team. We wanted to conquer the market with a new digital watch and are currently implementing their work for the next release.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Communication was smooth and we managed to stay within our budget. If we needed face-to-face meetings, we just arranged it a day before but we kept as well as e-mail and phone communication which worked.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I really valued their experience and understanding. They’re a smaller agency relative to others in the creative space, so they’re able to offer better customer service. They also have the desire to succeed that defines an evolving company, so they’re constantly trying to improve and go the extra mile for clients.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, nothing comes to my mind. I was very satisfied with their work.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m Head of Digital Care Lab in DigitalCare. Since 2012 we have been designing and implementing innovative insurance programs and services for mobile devices.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire EFEKT Agency?

We reached out to EFEKT to find a long-term UX/UI partner to help us build innovative digital products. Our cooperation started in 2016 and we still continue collaboration on various tasks.

The main projects which we have created together were Scanbox and Mirrorcheck.

Scanbox is an innovative device that uses advanced algorithms to scan smartphone screens and checks whether they’re damaged. After passing a screen test, a user can insure their phone that we design specifically for our partner.

Mirrorcheck is an application for extremely secure selfies. It lets users insure their phones by taking a photo in the mirror. After taking a picture, our app uses advanced algorithms to check the condition of a screen

What were your goals for this project?

We needed help in designing our digital products to ensure users could easily understand, navigate, and interact with the backend of our product. What’s more, we had to design a solution which should be very easy to implement for different Telco brands.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

When we decided to look for some UX/UI partnership I asked some friends from the IT world to recommend someone who is verified. Based on their past work and our internal review, it seemed like they could help us.

Describe the project in detail.

We have ongoing engagement but what I could outline would be in general support in:

  • User flows
  • Creating low&high fidelity wireframes
  • Making clickable prototypes in Invision
  • Designing mobile& web interfaces to our products
  • Working with our IT department to hand over all deliverables and help them in any case 
  • Creating some animations of interfaces.

What was the team composition?

We interacted mainly with Simon and David and their UX/UI design team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

As new products on the market, our solutions gathered a lot of positive feedback from users and our Telco partners. The effectiveness of the design was already apparent in the development phase. In short, the cooperation with EFEKT has led to a successful launch of our new products

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They're very responsive and we always felt like we're their priority. We had some challenges around the changing deadlines, but that could be expected because our projects are usually complex and requirements might be changing very quickly. I have to admit that they always pickup a phone even in the evening when we had some instant tasks to do.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

EFEKT is extremely helpful. They have done an outstanding job with being on time which is crucial in our organization because we have really tight deadlines with our Telco partners.

Often the pressure of the projects was high but EFEKT always delivered a scope of the project. I’m very satisfied with their performance and what we pay. It’s very hard to find a partner that’s this responsive and responsible for their work.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can't think of anything
