What was the scope of their involvement?
The project began with a discovery phase in which we knocked out the architecture for the new site. We made sure the functionalities would all work within the database and web app. Once we established these aspects, we moved into design, thinking about the look and feel of the site.
From there, after the redesign of the site was completed on Drupal 8, we began focusing on the new database. They helped us create it so our program staff can edit their profiles and manage their listings. We ran user-testing on the database with our program partners, migrated the information to it, and got it up and running. For the web app, we went through a similar process with multiple rounds of public user-testing, several feedback sessions, and launched it along with the site.
What is the team composition?
We worked with Dan (CEO & Creative Director, Electric Citizen) and Tim (Co-Founder & Technical Director, Electric Citizen). Their lead design and lead programmer supported us, along with a project manager. They were our three main points of contact, keeping the project running smoothly.
How did you come to work with Electric Citizen?
We sent out an RFP for Drupal vendors both local in Minnesota and nationally. Electric Citizen seemed to understand the project best and came in at a very reasonable price, which were our two goals in finding a team.
How much have you invested with them?
The contract cost of the core project was $170,000, and we had additional projects with them for smaller pieces.
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked together on this project from November 2017–February 2019.
