The Review
Feedback summary: 

Their team was receptive to feedback and frequent improvements. They created unique designs and improved customer relationships.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder of two startups that specialize in BI and consulting.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire eLEOPARD?

We hired them to design and develop the websites for both startups and two of our business partners. They also created the logos and drafted marketing materials like brochures and folders for our business partners.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted them to design unique websites.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

A colleague recommended them to us.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

We originally started working on the logo for my first startup about a year ago. They started working on the first website shortly thereafter and they developed three additional websites since. They also developed a landing page and a couple of smaller projects. We are currently working together on an animated video project.

What was the team composition?

The team composed of me, and one designer and one developer from eLEOPARD.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The success of the website for one of our business partners strengthened our relationship.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

I provided feedback and often changed my mind about the scope of the project. The team managed to fit all of the extra feedback and iterations into their schedule.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their work ethic and honesty were outstanding.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

When you work with a partner for about one year there will always be some misunderstandings and I think that's normal.

Feedback summary: 

Building on a long-term partnership, eLEOPARD clearly understands the project requirements and needs. The team produces high-quality code, and bugs are due to client-side changes in the scope of the work. They work quickly make changes whenever requested. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of Money Making Expert, a content website that’s about business, marketing, and making money. We also have a forum on the site.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with eLEOPARD?

We wanted to build a complex site with custom features, and we needed to build it from the ground up. One of the biggest challenges was to create what I had in mind to be able to give to eLEOPARD, since this was the first effort at our website. I had used eLEOPARD before for smaller website, but this was the first big project

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

eLEOPARD did everything from scratch. They did a lot of the design work. I had a few designs sketched by someone else, but a lot of that was changed by their team. Overall, eLEOPARD designed 75% of the site and developed 100% of it.

The site works like a normal article site. There are articles, several widgets, and a forum which are standard. The custom things we were trying to build included the tax calculator and the budget planning tools. The budget planner was the biggest tool we made; it helps businesses track their business expenses. It allows businesses to input all their income and expenses and, at the end, they have a detailed plan to follow throughout the year.

We used WordPress as the management system because we needed something that would be easy for users. When they were finished, I tested the site myself, and eLEOPARD also tested it. There were a lot of bugs because I made a lot of changes. We made sure everything was working well.

How many resources were assigned to your project?

We had two resources that we worked with.

How did you come to work with eLEOPARD?

I came across them about three or four years ago when I needed a smaller project designed. Because I’ve been through so many other developers and designers, nobody understands what I want like eLEOPARD did. When I try to explain what I want to other developers, it’s too difficult and I never get the results that I want. I find eLEOPARD a lot easier that way, so I stay with them because I know the job will be done and it will be done well.

How much have you invested with eLEOPARD?

We have spent between £3,000 and £4,000 on this project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working on this project in January 2015, and it’s ongoing. We have some more work to do before it’s ready to go live, and there will be ongoing maintenance to do when this site is completed. We did some side projects with eLEOPARD at the same time we were doing this project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s not live yet so we don’t have any metrics. The quality of the work is high; I wouldn’t use eLEOPARD if it wasn’t quality work. Out of everyone I’ve used, their work is higher quality than anyone else.

How did eLEOPARD perform from a project management standpoint?

My deadlines are pretty open so I can’t say how good they are with tight deadlines. They’ve always done the work quickly. In terms of tools, we use a time tracker called Hubstaff, and we communicate through Skype.

What did you find most impressive about eLEOPARD?

The unique thing about them is that they understand my project. I’ve worked with other designers and developers before, and sometimes the language barrier can be difficult. eLEOPARD seems like they could be from the UK or the US because they understand you and have a grasp of what you’re asking. What I needed wasn’t a typical project, so it’s impressive that we managed to get pretty close to what I wanted.

Are there any areas eLEOPARD could improve?

There may be times they don’t get back to me as soon as I’d like, but it’s not major. If I didn’t like something about them, I’d move on

Feedback summary: 

Each deliverable performs reliably across a variety of browsers and email clients, thanks to eLEOPARD’s robust testing methods and clear documentation. Their ability to grasp objectives quickly allows them to deliver impressive product environments at an outstanding price point.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO of HowardsHome, a news and social media aggregator. We build Software-as-a-service [SaaS] solutions for customers in the Netherlands that aggregate news so that it can be used by sales and marketing teams and large government organizations. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with eLEOPARD?

Initially, we needed to come up with some fairly basic logo designs. We had a lack of in-house resources and didn’t want to hire another full-time person. The logo design was not something that we considered a part of our core competency, and our requirements aren’t overly complex. We did have an in-house designer, but eLEOPARD has gradually taken over that entire role. We’ve been happy with their work so far, and the relationship works. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our collaboration with eLEOPARD started with design and branding, but we’ve actually progressed to having them do all our UI design in close cooperation with a colleague of mine, who’s in charge of spec’ing and wireframing. He passes the material to eLEOPARD’s team, and they typically come back with a number of proposals and take us through the whole process, including the delivery of the code, graphics, and everything else so that the developers on our end can integrate those elements into the product.

eLEOPARD produces mockups of various interfaces for us to choose from, including the actual layouts, coloring, and styles, which typically are based on the wireframes we provide. Once we agree on the actual choice, they see it through all the way, delivering the CSS and HTML code we need in order to develop the output again in our own environments.

We typically interface with 1 person from their team, who communicates to the rest of their organization. We appreciate having a single person who really understands what we want and what we do. He’s also hands-on and does some of the work himself, aside from the 6–7 other people he manages.

How did you come to work with eLEOPARD?

We use 4–5 different outsourced companies in different capacities. I believe we met eLEOPARD after making a post on a freelancing site. We liked their style and layout for our logos the best. We have experience using German, French, Polish, Indian, and American groups. Certain cultural differences can lead to different results than what we would expect, but eLEOPARD as a company delivers a modern and up-to-date style that we like.

How much have you invested with eLEOPARD?

The cost of their work for the past year was between $200 and $1,000 per month. The overall cost has been around $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

My email archive for the conversations with eLEOPARD dates back to mid-2014, which is when I think we started working together. We have ongoing work on a monthly basis. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their work is documented clearly and thoroughly. This proficiency developed over time, as we specified that we want clear naming within the code. eLEOPARD conformed to our documentation requirements, and they test everything upfront across different browsers and email clients. If something is missed, they will fix it quickly.

How did eLEOPARD perform from a project management standpoint?

We have more trouble keeping up with eLEOPARD’s speed. They tend to have a quick turnaround. After we brief them, we often receive feedback or initial designs within 1–2 days. We can comment on that work (although we rarely notice any major issues) and have it delivered at a high rate.

Other than Skype, we haven’t used any communication tools. We use GitHub for exchanging code.

What did you find most impressive about eLEOPARD?

eLEOPARD is the best partner I’ve ever worked with. We’ve done outsourcing before and found that the most important factor is understanding each other. This helps us work together and get things done fast. eLEOPARD’s speed is unique in this field. Working with them is a pleasure; they can easily grasp what we need and are willing to learn new things.

For example, we recently had a project in which integrated some of our software with the Salesforce platform; we didn’t have a lot of experience with that technology, and neither did eLEOPARD. We agreed to pay them for the hours they’d need to become acquainted with whatever framework Salesforce is using. They learned the platform at my expense, but they did it quickly and were able to create a well-designed environment in no time. I wouldn’t have known where to turn otherwise for those tasks.

Also, I asked eLEOPARD up front for estimates and for discussions if we come close to exceeding the budget. We’re typically fine with this possibility, but I want to know when it happens. They were quite keen to do this.

Are there any areas eLEOPARD could improve?

We gave some initial comments about their time reporting. It wasn’t bad, but we made new arrangements to provide a clearer overview of hourly tasks. This is a developing part of the relationship. As with every project, we also need to update our own books with the specifics. I’m far from being unhappy, but that’s a part of the relationship we both need to work on.
