Efinitytech delivered a user-friendly directory, which has received positive feedback for the platform’s professional aesthetic. Committed to satisfaction, they communicated effectively to ensure they understood and met project goals. The team’s active involvement ensured valuable collaboration.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the president and CEO of Associated Builders and Contractors of western Washington. We’re a construction trade association with about 340 members, mostly commercial light industrial contractors.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Efinitytech?

One of the membership benefits for our contractors is a referral system and being able to market their companies. We needed a partner to develop a directory for our website with profiles that members can update and use as a marketing tool. We also wanted users to be able to search and hire subcontractors for their projects.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Efinitytech built a membership directory for our website, which allows members to edit and update their information including their services and logo. The Efinitytech team developed features that enable users to add individuals within their company as well as graphics that focus on safety from Associated Builders and Contractors. Not only a marketing tool, but the directory also helps users search and locate subcontractors to support members’ projects. They created a map that enables members to search for contractors within certain areas without having to sort through the directory. This was a key function for our users.

What is the team composition?

We worked with Vaughan (VP of marketing and sales, Efinitytech) and two other teammates. The owner of the company as well as a web developer collaborated on this project too.

How did you come to work with Efinitytech?

Efinitytech has been an active and supportive member of the association for the last 10–12 years. Vaughan has also served on our board. They had previously worked with other contractors in the association. After sending a RFP to different companies, we decided to collaborate with Efinitytech.

How much have you invested with them?

Through the course of our collaboration, we spent $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together between September–December 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Once Efinitytech established the directory on our website, we sent it to our board members to experience the platform’s high-quality functionality. There are 69 chapters of ABC across the country; many have noticed the directory and complimented its professional look. They’ve also requested a referral from Efinitytech, hoping to work with their team.

How did Efinitytech perform from a project management standpoint?

We held many meetings when Efinitytech asked questions and provided different examples to ensure they understood what we wanted. Their team was in tune with our vision and communicated effectively. Customer service was one of their priorities.  If anything was behind, they provided updates but were mostly on track.    

What did you find most impressive about them?

Efinitytech was dedicated to customer service as well as the standard of product they deliver. Their hands-on approach and desire to meet customer expectations distinguish them from other providers.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Off the top of my head, I can’t think of anything that could’ve been improved.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Sit down and have an initial meeting to explain requirements. Be clear with expectations because Efinitytech will deliver.

The final site is now fully-functioning and has hosted approximately 260,000 sessions. It's robust, easily searchable, and has never crashed. Personable and reliable, the team's passion for their work far outweighs their desire to win contracts.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a partner at a diversified research and strategy agency for companies in the pharmaceutical supply chain research and manufacturing industry. We help clients improve their outbound and inbound marketing to make them more competitive in this highly technical marketplace. Within our brand, we have several smaller brands that make it simpler for customers to interact with us.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Efinitytech?

We wanted to capture our quarterly print publication in the digital universe, so we hired Efinitytech to create a multifaceted website that could act as a repository for our educational and technical industry articles.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built a highly searchable website with Hubspot, implementing specific industry filters and an open search that captured the depth of the content housed there. Efinitytech handled key aspects of the site from the backend, allowing us to track content and tag topics. They also designed a near real-time page that enables visitors to browse our most popular articles. The team added news and press release elements to broaden our services. We also built a blast platform that allows us to send out newsletters to 100,000 readers three times a week. The continue to manage that for us now.

The site also includes our own market research, housing ratings for about a thousand suppliers. They were able to combine a massive amount of data while making the site searchable with a range of criteria. We’ve been running successfully for about two years now.

What is the team composition?

Our primary contacts are Mark (President & Senior Programmer, Efinitytech) and Nolan (Programmer & Web Developer, Efinitytech). Mark acts as our account executive, but is also skilled at working with data and API integration. Nolan is a hands-on project manager with a strong technical understanding. He did a lot of troubleshooting and problem solving for us. They also have at least two other team members we’ve interacted with.

How did you come to work with Efinitytech?

They were our existing partner when we started the project. I briefed the scope work with them, and they gave us a very competitive proposal. Since they were our primary partner at that point, we were aware of their ability to manage data and thought they’d be good for the project. 

How much have you invested with them?

Across all our work with them, we’ve invested between $300,000–$500,000. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in 2014. Since then, we’ve worked on multiple website projects together and made them our primary partner in this area.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

After a few glitches in the beginning, the site is fully-functioning. We’ve seen a good performance from the newsletter especially—it currently has 105,000 readers. Since the launch, the site hosted about 260,000 sessions and has never crashed. We have a dual server backup to handle this, and the team resolves glitches within hours. Our site is robust, widely-used, and functions very well.

We have over 3,600 pieces of content on the site, all tagged and tracked using their system. The site works very easily on the frontend, but a tremendous amount of talent went into creating the custom experience. 

How did Efinitytech perform from a project management standpoint?

The team is highly personable and reasonable. A lot can fall onto Mark’s plate sometimes, and he’s put in extra effort to keep things on track or readjust.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their team never oversells, always responding to us honestly with plausible, unique solutions. I’ve been able to see firsthand how their passion and care for their work outweighs just winning contacts.

Are there any areas they could improve?

For a project like this with tons of moving parts, it would be helpful if they implemented a log so anyone on their team could check in with us to find out where we are on the project. Currently, a lot falls on Mark’s shoulders, so it would be nice to see some process improvements on the outward-facing part of the relationship.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They respond best if you can articulate your goals as thoroughly as possible. Even if you’re not a web person, it's important for them to understand key attributes and functionalities of the product upfront. Also, they're capable of taking on challenges and providing guidance along the way.

Feedback summary: 

The team continuously performs on a high level, demonstrating standout integrity and commitment to both the success of the project and partner. They seamlessly communicate from across the country to get projects done according to plan.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of a marketing firm that’s been running since 1995. There are several divisions to the business, one being website work. I also have a promotional products screen-printing operation.  

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Efinitytech?

I needed a full-service CMS (content management system) IT provider to permanently support my company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Initially, I had my own servers, software developers, and I did my own development. At that stage, I had pieces of the puzzle figured out, but Efinitytech offered a complete package. They’re a full-service provider with their own equipment and software. In our continuing relationship, I depend on them for software and web development, using a model I previously built.  

They made enhancements to my system, converting all of my software to a BSM platform, which is still operational today. I’ve been able to add about 100 of my clients' websites to that platform over the years. They’ve outsourced email and editing services, but everything is uniquely coded by their team. I’ve been able to depend on them for full support, and now I’m free to market and sell my product.

What is the team composition?

Early on, I primarily worked with four of their teammates. But, in my partnership with them, I’ve now engaged with the team in its entirety, even after their expansion. At this point, I often receive responses from different staff members, and my work gets passed to the teammate whose skills are best suited for the work. They also take efficiently into account when assigning their resources to my more time-sensitive projects.

How did you come to work with Efinitytech?

I initially had a partnership with another company, but I was looking for someone that was using a BSM approach. I saw Efinitytech and left them a message. I got connected with Vaughan (VP, Efinitytech), and we got along very well. Coincidentally, we even used to live and visit the same places growing up. Later, we got into discussions and negotiations, and it felt like a good alliance from the beginning.  

How much have you invested with them?

Over the course of our work together, I’ve spent about $120,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together for almost 15 years. I first engaged with them in 2004, and they’ve been my permanent partner ever since.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their team has provided me full service for almost 15 years. There’s never been a task they couldn’t accomplish. They’ve been able to help me support 100 of my client’s websites on my BSM platform along the way­­—it’s a powerful operation.

How did Efinitytech perform from a project management standpoint?

Their work ethic is top-notch. They’ve worked weekends to get projects done, and they always keep in contact throughout the process. They’re located all the way across the country, but they always keep me the loop. They can complete tasks in a matter of days. Sometimes I talk to them daily.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve been in the business since 1972 and have dealt with people all my life. In all of my experience, Efinitytech has standout integrity and attention to detail. I’ve been able to trust them throughout this entire process, and they’ve never let me down.

They care about their clients much more than anyone else I’ve dealt with. Even after one of their team members left the company, he still encouraged me to call on him if I ever needed help. I’ve never received that level of support from a partner.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can’t think of anything.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the president of SAFE Consulting Services, a regional engineering firm specializing in fire protection and education in electrical and fire alarms.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Efinitytech?

We needed help with web development projects, including design work. We wanted to expand into different states, and each state’s website had slightly different requirements.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They designed all of our websites for us, which needed to be robust and allow us to make changes on the fly, as requirements change. We've made such changes three times since the launch already.

Our website was initially used just for validation, but we needed it to expand into advertising our services. There aren’t many people in our market that specialize in the low voltage side of things. We’ve added content and used Efinitytech for SEO side of things. They use VSM Tools for the work.

What is the team composition?

When we’re in the design process and it’s very technical, we work with Mark (President & Majority Owner, Efinitytech), while on the sales side, we work with Vaughan (Vice-President, Efinitytech). There’s also someone who works on the SEO, and everybody pitches in if there are technical issues.

How did you come to work with Efinitytech?

We met Vaughan through professional contacts and then he called us. We had a working website, but we knew it needed redeveloping, so we asked him for a quote. We budgeted for it and then updated our first website. They’ve worked on several others since then.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $100,000–$120,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2013 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve already had new customers come to us, including for two brand-new projects. After deploying advertments and using an SEO model for our website, we saw immediate interest. It’s been far better than we expected, and very positive.

In our SEO meetings, they give us reports that tell us how people reach our website, what their activity is like, and which partnerships are working for us. We can also monitor the number of hits we receive. 

How did Efinitytech perform from a project management standpoint?

They do well and meet our deadlines. We can email their support and there’s always someone who’s on call who will respond. We use email and monthly video conferences to communicate the rest of the time too.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I trust them—I’d never release my codes, my security, and allow them inside my firewall if I didn’t. I’m not worried about security with them. They’re my go-to vendor for websites.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the CEO and founder of BedVoyage, a manufacturer of bamboo bedding and bath linens.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Efinitytech?

We engaged Efinitytech to design and develop a more user-friendly website that we could make edits to internally.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We initially visited their office and went over our challenges and goals. After they provided recommendations, they then redesigned and developed the site, using the creative assets we provided them. They continue to provide ongoing support, including maintenance and upgrades as needed. 

What is the team composition?

We primarily work with two people, including the VP, as well as a few others on their team.

How did you come to work with Efinitytech?

One of our colleagues recommended them, and we decided to work with them since they were locally based and had a good reputation.

How much have you invested with them?

We've probably invested around $7,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together around March 2013 for 3–4 months on the site, but they continue to make themselves available to us for other needs and upgrades. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Efinitytech helped significantly boost sales by creating a more relevant, user- and SEO-friendly site.

How did Efinitytech perform from a project management standpoint?

They're proactive and responsive, readily accessible by phone, email, and in-person meetings. They excel at working collaboratively on the site to ensure our needs are being met.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're quick to help us whenever we reach out. They recently resolved a big issue we were having with one of the coupons we were offering online, fixing it within five minutes of calling them. They're also good about explaining everything in detail and providing updates or feedback on features that would help improve the site's functionality.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could expand their capabilities when it comes to building out more functionality on the backend since they outsource that work to a third party, but it's something they're working on.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder and publisher at QBR The Black Book Review. We’re a book review and publishing organization.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Efinitytech?

We needed to make the website more user-friendly for our readers. We wanted to deliver content faster and in a more interactive manner.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’re a long-time client, but recently revamped the website in the last six months. We just launched a book giveaway to increase our subscriber base. Efinitytech helped us execute that project by identifying the user experience and fostering a reader conversation. The team captured emails, set time limits for giveaways, and processed the entries and winners.

Next, the team will support our effort to produce videos and create podcasts. Efinitytech will post the podcasts on the website. However, it was only this past year that I decided that every book review had to be visual. It had to be based on some video content.

What is the team composition?

Vaughan (Vice President/Marketing & Sales, Efinitytech) is my primary contact. I also work with Aaron (Senior Developer/Web Developer, Efinitytech, and Mark (President/Senior Programmer, Efinitytech).

How did you come to work with Efinitytech?

A colleague recommended Efinitytech. They understood our goal to generate growth.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June 2017 and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Efinitytech has the vision and integrity to make our site relevant, current, and profitable. The team has transformed the site and stayed within budget. They integrated new technology into our best practices using clear and accessible language. We now have a 10,000-opt-in email list and the weekly newsletter has increased our click-throughs to 8%. Our internal stakeholders are happy with the results.

Furthermore, they have excellent customer service that’s enabled me to manage the website. I’ve never engaged a vendor so dedicated to achieving success for their client. They counter our ideas with even better alternatives. There’s no reason we would work with any other company.

How did Efinitytech perform from a project management standpoint?

The team is accessible and available. There hasn’t been once in the last four months that I haven’t spoken with Vaughan at least three times a day.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’ve delivered my vision. They did everything that I needed them to do. The website is our new gold standard.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can’t think of anything.

With the company I worked for previously, we needed to update our website. It had been well over 10 years, and it was very outdated.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

When I joined the project, it had already begun under our previous graphics person. I worked with Efinitytech to get the website the way we wanted it. We knew we wanted a content management system [CMS] so that we could easily update our products ourselves, and Efinitytech had their own CMS called VSM. 

The biggest element of the project was the development an administrative backend that we could easily use to update all of our products as they frequently change. We also wanted the ability to create dynamic content such as technical articles and product instructions that are easy to update, without having to constantly use HTML. 

Efinitytech took all of the data from our previous website and moved it onto their system to get us started. We had many technical articles and almost 900 products, half of which had their own product instructions. It would have been a huge undertaking to start from scratch. Initially, they also helped us with some SEO, which was helpful in getting particular product lines to rank higher.

How did you come to work with Efinitytech?

Our graphics person had worked with another one of their clients who was located right next to us. As she had experience with them, they were a choice right at the top of her list.

How much have you invested with them?

I think the site probably cost $15,000 to $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with Efinitytech throughout 2013 and then the site went live in February 2014.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Everybody at our company was pleased with the look of the website and its functionality. My sales department was especially happy because it was so much easier to make quick updates to products and select products to feature. Our dealer network was also happy, and they began using our website as a tool for sales if anyone had questions about our products.

How did Efinitytech perform from a project management standpoint?

Efinitytech did a really good job. I loved working with them, as they’re a smaller company, so you get the personal feel from them. You can call them at any time, with any questions, and they’re always right on top of it. The size of the team that worked on most of our project was probably three to four people. 

They’re located about five minutes from where I worked, so to communicate we would use everything from email and phone to scheduling meetings or even dropping by.

What did you find most impressive about them?

One of the things that make Efinitytech stand out is the fact that their content management tool is custom. They’re constantly updating it too, so when you work with them, you get those new features. They’re very responsive to their customers. There were a couple of times when there were things that we wanted to be added to their VSM tool, and that means all their customers receive the update too. Similarly, if their other customers had ideas, then we would see them in the update. 

I also liked that they’re a smaller, local company. You just don't get that personal touch with the bigger companies. It feels like they’re part of your business and that your success is important to them. It’s awesome and is why I've worked with them again.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can't think of anything specific. Every time I need something, I can email them and they’ll answer right away and take care of any problem I may have. The tools have been really good, there isn’t anything that I haven't had access to.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO, president, and founder of Cepher Publishing Group. We conduct comprehensive restoration of scripture in the English language.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Efinity Tech?

We are an exclusively online retailer and wholesaler. As a result, we needed a strong digital presence, which we’ve been able to achieve with Efinity Tech. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We initially contacted them for website development. We had been using the WordPress format, which wasn’t an effective platform for high-volume online retailers. Efinity brought new protocols and a system that protected us from hacking and improved our confidentiality. Their team also provided SEO and other strategies for developing our marketing protocol. We had been using tired forms of advertising (e.g. print media, TV, radio, and some online channels) that were ineffective. Our push towards SEO made all the difference in terms of how the company was evolving.  

When we needed to develop a mobile solution, we elected to use Efinity again. They built a bulletproof app and maintained ongoing testing for it. We’ve had little trouble with the app across multiple platforms—Android, iOS, Kindle, and Blackberry. We’ve been able to implement fairly substantial updates through their skills.

We went to Efinity asking for an e-commerce website, which was developed promptly. We also wanted to implement Google Gadgets. But, these items seem to be vulnerable to hackers, so we wanted to have independent protocols that offered better protection. Our e-commerce page is functional, both in terms of frontend and backend. It interfaces with banking and PayPal features seamlessly, and it’s also integrated into our shipping protocol. We have many functionalities taking place between the website our online sales. Efinity has substantial cloud capabilities, so we have been able to house our infrastructure on their discrete servers.

We’ve worked directly with the president of Efinity, Mark, who was in charge of the app development; Vaughan, their marketing director; and Richard on the SEO and VSM CMS side. The new system is effective and has allowed us to develop a full-bodied online retail experience that meets our expectations. We can fine-tune and direct the platform they created, which has led to explosive growth.

How did you come to work with Efinity Tech?

We’d worked with other groups in the past, but all of them proved to be disastrous. They never kept their promises, so our bills were increasing while we waited for a product. Our website languished since we couldn’t do what we needed. I never had a good experience with outsourcing until we met Efinity Tech. They’ve been a fantastic answer to our problem.

A friend of mine was bragging about Efinity and described them as the best choice he’d ever made. I used to have a home in Monroe, Washington and heard they were based in that area. We met with Vaughan, who represented the company well, so we hired them.

How much have you invested with Efinity Tech?

We’ve spent a substantial amount of money developing the app, but we looked at quotes from other parts of the world that were competitive with Efinity’s offer. Efinity is the only provider that offered to support their work on an ongoing basis. Even now, we are embarking on a fourth or fifth upgrade for the app, which will be quite substantial. We’re adding a night mode, greater copy capabilities, and new redundancies.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Efinity Tech in August 2014. Since the first version, we’ve continued to develop the site. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve had over 450% growth in the last two years. Our first website had a WordPress interface, which only had 5% of the functionality compared to Efinity Tech’s version. They built our website quickly, efficiently, and effectively.

How did Efinity Tech perform from a project management standpoint?

They showed us wireframes. We discussed the site’s VSM approach, artwork, and mobile vs. desktop layout ideas. Our web page transfers well between mediums, displaying the content we want in the order in the right order on a smartphone, a tablet, or a laptop. We went over the detailed placement of particular images and texts, using a maximum-content approach for each page.

The project management was straightforward. We came to Efinity with our request, they built it, and we communicated about particular issues. For instance, we realized that we were being charged international customs fees and needed to make adjustments. We also changed our discount-offering process.

What did you find most impressive about Efinity Tech?

Efinity has been a tremendous partner, and I can’t recommend them highly enough. They’re serious people and have outstanding skills for a private-sector group. Everyone on the team is proficient in terms of code, software, SEO, and hardware applications. We visited them recently and looked at a new server, which will have 1 TB of RAM. This is the kind of hardware they’re adding into our server farm.

Are there any areas Efinity Tech could improve?

They could improve the parking in front of their building and have higher-quality food in the fridge when we visit. Overall, they’ve been a wonderful partner for us.

BACKGROUND

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Efinity Tech?

The first website I created and spent money for was terrible. I wanted to redesign the whole thing. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Efinity Tech looked at the website I had in place, made a list of everything wrong with it, and suggested how each issue could be improved. I didn’t want to spend more money on a site that had just been completed, so Efinity Tech came up with ideas for tweaks and improvements. After a few months of trying to fix the site on our own, we gave up and started from scratch. Efinity Tech built us a brand-new site and has been managing our SEO over the last 3 years.

The website was built using VSM, which is a content management system created by Efinity Tech.

How did you come to work with Efinity Tech?

My original site was built on WordPress. I knew that I needed to write more blog posts to increase my Google hits. I was trying to put something new out there every week, but I wasn’t seeing any results. I met Efinity Tech’s principal at a business meet-and-greet and told him about my problems. He pulled my site up on his phone and told me immediately that it wasn’t being picked up because it lacked SEO-friendly content. I had spent thousands of dollars on a website and didn’t want to spend thousands more on another without knowing if it would work. But, the fact that he was willing to provide consultation for a small monthly fee made me feel comfortable with the arrangement. I looked at other sites built by Efinity Tech and thought that they looked awesome. We took a big leap of faith with them, and it paid off. I have been getting phone calls since the day after launching the new site.

How much have you invested with Efinity Tech?

The cost of their work has been a bit above $6,000 per year for SEO and development services.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Efinity Tech in the fall of 2014 and went through a tweaking process for a couple of months before we decided to start from scratch. The site went live in January 2015. We have been revamping that site over the last 2 months. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Ever since the new site went live, my phone has been ringing. We revised and revamped the website in the last week and made it even better.

Based on the SEO reports I receive from Efinity Tech, I can see traffic increasing. It tripled or quadrupled once we launched the new site.

How did Efinity Tech perform from a project management standpoint?

I receive monthly reports that show which pages are doing well, how I can improve them, and whether I need to write a blog post with specific terminology for increasing traffic. I can send them emails asking for tweaks, and the team will work on those items within 24 hours. We’ve always been on target.

My main contact manages all the edits for the site, and I have access to the office manager as well. 

What did you find most impressive about Efinity Tech?

They shared expertise about site content and mentioned when something was not compatible with the web world. Efinity Tech has the knowledge and staff to enact helpful changes. For example, “Contact me” won’t attract any responses, but changing that content to “Give us a call today” created a 60% increase in calls, simply because the language is more powerful. It sounds simple, but their ideas have generated a substantial difference in our business calls.

In terms of SEO expertise, Efinity Tech stays current with trends in the field, and they know how to tweak and adjust keywords.

Are there any areas Efinity Tech could improve?

I can’t think of anything.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Barn Pros has been in business in the state of Washington for 25 years. We provide pre-engineered building kits. We started out with barns for the equestrian lover, but we also have barns for farms and agricultural use. We have barn-style garages and shops for people, and we have a line of barn apartments and barn-style homes. It’s a pretty niche market, and what we provide is a real systems approach to building itself. I’m the marketing coordinator.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Efinity Tech?

In 2013, we were in a position where we wanted to redo our websites, and we knew we wanted to work with someone local. We needed to have a really dynamic website that could grow with the company because we had some big goals we were aiming to achieve in the coming years. We knew we couldn’t implement them by the time that we had this new website, but we wanted to make sure we had a platform that could accommodate those things that we wanted to do.

We wanted to build out and have an e-commerce store. We wanted to have a dynamic ability to bring in different functionality to the website and create a good presentation for our products.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Efinity Tech provided their own proprietary software for web design, which worked really well for us because it wasn’t just a drag and drop template. It was something they could use their systems for but also custom design it for us. We can easily get in there and modify and change it, which we really liked because we were planning on adding and changing products or updating content pretty regularly. We had the capability to do that in-house, so being able to work with a system that could allow us to do that without having to call another company and have them make the change was the goal. Their platform is called VSM. They built the frontend and backend of the website.

Each person at Efinity wears a few hats. When you’re working with a small business, typically you work in several different departments. Their company is probably about five people. We mainly work with one person who helps us with the content, and they have another gentleman who does a lot of the behind the scenes work, and then another person who does the design work. It’s pretty apparent who you should speak with depending on the project that you have in mind.

They have a good team representation, and I always feel like my thoughts, ideas, or concerns can be translated pretty easily. Our new website is a completely different design. Because their platform is proprietary, they update it all the time and do their own changes and optimization for it.

How did you come to work with Efinity Tech?

I didn’t find them originally. I believe our general manager did some searching for different companies and found that Efinity Tech was a local company. He actually chose to go drive down and visit them and found that they had a lot in common. He decided that Efinity Tech would be a good fit for us.

How much have you invested with Efinity Tech?

We are their largest customer. We have fair pricing with them, but I don’t know how it compares to other firms.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2012, and the work is ongoing. We launched our website in November 2016. We plan on working with them for quite some time, and we really enjoy the functionality of our new website.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our traffic year over year has gone up steadily and we hear nothing but really great reviews about our website. We have a huge amount of new users, bounce rates are pretty low, and our site duration is pretty high given the industry that we are in. People spend an average of three minutes on our website, which is a pretty long time. In the years’ time, we’ve got two million sessions on our site with 75% of that being new traffic. There are three million page views.

We anticipated a drop in traffic with our website launch last year, so we had a lot of different things in place to kind of ease that transition. They did a lot of work ahead of time to help offset any drop in traffic that might have come up, which was greatly appreciated.

A big part of our website when we launched with them in 2013 was creating a mobile-adaptive website. Since having a mobile-adaptive site, we saw our mobile traffic just in the last four years go from about 30% to about 55%. Their ability to develop a mobile-adaptive site was really important to us and is probably one of the big reasons why we went with them.

How did Efinity Tech perform from a project management standpoint?

We’ve got a good system in place where we can communicate different projects, initiatives, or updates that we want to launch. They’ll give us an estimated timeline that they typically always meet. If anything comes up, they’re really good about reaching out and letting us know.

What did you find most impressive about Efinity Tech?

Even though I don’t know much about programming and coding, when I come up with an idea, Efinity Tech will always spend time thinking about it and letting me know if it’s possible or if not. If it’s possible, they let me know what kind of programming would be needed to make that happen. More often than not, it turns into something really great, and they can end up using that with their other clients as well. I really appreciate the open-mindedness. They are very open to learning new things and they respond really well to their customers’ needs. They are always willing to think outside the box.

Are there any areas Efinity Tech could improve?

No.
