Custom CMS Solution for The Civil Liberties Union for Europe

Client

The Civil Liberties Union for Europe is a non-governmental organisation, supported by the Open Society Foundation, with a primary focus on boosting the visibility of human rights at national and European Union levels.

 

Solution

Along with the liberties.eu website we created a content management system that allows for the content creation, translation and publishing in several

different languages. With a built-in project it is now easy to overview the publishing process and onboard new editors.

System of Web Applications for The World Jewish Congress

protecting their right to health.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The website has been well received by its users, who spend an increasing amount of time engaging with it. The team at Evermore is always responsive, working hard to come up with solutions to any requirements, and demonstrating their creativity and development skill.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We're an NGO focused on different aspects of human rights and liberties. I'm the editor-in-chief of the website.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Evermore?

We needed to start the development of our website from scratch.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provide full-fledged web development, dealing with some of our databases in the background. The platform was custom developed using Ruby on Rails. The main challenge of the site is that it’s multilingual, but it’s not fully in-sync when it comes to the content in different languages. We have a mobilization platform using tools developed by Evermore, including open-letter sending modules, petition pages, and so on.

We have a CMS through which we task our translators, and collaborate and communicate with NGO partners. We try to arrange as many things as we can through it. We provide different levels of access to the members so that they see the right things for them in the system.

What is the team composition?

We worked with their head of development. He assigned different tasks to the developers on the team. The team size has fluctuated, but I believe that there’ve been two or three people working for us on average. We also have a project manager.

Evermore has a designer, but we use our in-house designer for content artwork and general website layout elements. It’s a kind of hybrid situation. Their designer collaborates with the rest of the team.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent around €15,000 [$17,736 USD] per year on their services. The total cost has been around €60,000 [$70,947 USD] plus tax.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Evermore in November 2013. The first version of our website was up-and-running in April 2014. We have an ongoing contract with them for 12 months, which we will probably renew next year.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We're growing in terms of the number of users and time spent on the website. Our Google Analytics figures show us that it has made sense to invest in Evermore. Since we're not a for-profit company, we’re not extremely picky about the data. We try to grow and we try to invest in what we need, but that doesn’t mean that we are completely data-driven.

How did Evermore perform from a project management standpoint?

When the ball is rolling on our side, they're responsive and quick. I have nothing negative to say. They coordinate well, and their project manager is good at following up on things and making sure that tasks are not lost.

We work through Basecamp with the developers. We have a list of feature requests, which is always updated. The editorial team, the content team, the developers, and the graphic designers all collaborate through Basecamp. This made all our lives much easier when it came to new features, debugging, or solving outstanding issues.

They resolve any issues quickly. We have a close working relationship and they're very responsive. When something is wrong, I let them know about it on Slack and they get back to us within half an hour at most. Most often, it’s in a matter of minutes. On the other hand, we are running on Heroku, so the website itself doesn’t have too many crashes. The Amazon servers are serving us well.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They do their job in the best possible way. I appreciate their speed, and the head of development is very creative when it comes to special solutions or addressing certain needs we may have. We've never heard that something was impossible. The worst thing we heard was that something would cost a certain number of development hours, so we had to decide whether or not it worked for us. They really bring their brainpower to the work.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We were not keen on using their graphic designer initially, because we had our own. The decision never came up again. I know that they do have in-house designers.

We overran our budget last year, but they were willing to do some pro bono work for us. They like us as clients and we like to work with them, so we resolved the dispute through some bonus hours from Evermore.

I don’t know if the developer fluctuation is an issue or not. I think it’s normal that they had a few developers leave over the years, as it’s a high-demand industry.

Feedback summary: 

Evermore’s new site significantly increased web traffic. Their consistent and dynamic communication practices complement their impeccably organized project management. They constantly exceed expectations while still offering economical prices.

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 am the CTO of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), a representative body of Jewish organizations around the world, outside Israel.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Evermore?

We originally had a very old website and knew it needed to be redone; we were looking for someone to rebuild our entire site.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Evermore used Ruby on Rails to build, from scratch, a fully functional website that included user registration, credit card processing, multilingual capabilities and audio, video and photo upload features. MailChimp, as well as WJC’s own database, which Evermore would subsequently help rebuild, were integrated into the site. Evermore designed the site while also providing branding strategy and logo creation. Evermore continues to update content and responds to any needs that come up.

What is the team composition?

One project manager, who was my point of contact, led three developers.

How did you come to work with Evermore?

Someone within our own organization knew an Evermore team member and introduced us. We interviewed Evermore, as well as four other development companies, before choosing to ultimately work with Evermore.

How much have you invested with them?

Thus far, we have invested around $200,000 with Evermore.

What is the status of this engagement?

The initial project began in October of 2017. Although the site was finished many years ago, the professional relationship is still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

After the new site was built, our web traffic increased dramatically. All of us—across multiple departments—who dealt with the development process were extremely happy with Evermore's work. They provided excellent quality and I would give them five stars.

How did Evermore perform from a project management standpoint?

They were exceptional project managers and were even more organized than we were. They guided us very well. We have a dedicated channel that we communicate on several times a day. We also have regular video meetings and, whenever possible, meet in person, which is usually about once a month.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They knew better than us what we needed.

Are there any areas they could improve?

For us, they were perfect.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Come into projects with a sense of honesty and flexibility.

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 am a postdoctoral research fellow at Lund University in Sweden. More specifically, I am currently in charge of a research group called Comparative Literature. I’m part of a small group of research scholars who wanted to create research solidarity within our school.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Evermore?

We hired them to construct websites for research purposes as part of a university initiative. We’re the first cross-section, cross-disciplinary research group. We wanted an online business card, and a tool for organizing and disseminating research information.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

A friend recommended them to us. We got in touch with them and had an initial face-to-face meeting, during which they gave us a list of questions about our needs, our objectives, and the main function of the site. We gave detailed descriptions, even though we weren’t sure about the technical feasibility of the product since we weren’t familiar with IT services. After hearing about the things we wanted to do, Evermore offered us functional solutions.

They questioned us a lot about known competitors and asked whether we had any models to follow. We coudln't answer this, so we did some research and thought more strategically about the market. We are a small group of researchers within a university, so the economic aspects of the product mattered less. We then formalized the pages, chose color palettes, and passed things on to the design team.

The main function of the site is to introduce our research group. It also works as a source of news, informing our followers about events and activities, and allows us to organize our own activities as well. We conduct our own research projects, provide information about seminars, and collect information about comparative literature. The site acts as a knowledge-sharing network featuring colleagues within our university and internationally.

The functionalities and database we required were probably less demanding than many proper business solutions. It’s an online business card for other people to get in touch with us for potential collaborations. We had a test run in the beginning. We’ve updated the site a few times since its launch and changed certain pages to meet our needs. 

What is the team composition?

We’ve had close contact with two people from their team. Based on the number of people who have access to our administration portal, I believe that Evermore assigned five people to our project. We’ve worked directly with their project manager, who passed on relevant information to the designated resources.

How did you come to work with Evermore?

We found them through a friend’s recommendation. We weren’t sure what a collaboration like this would be like, since no one in our group had worked with web design companies. At the same time, we didn’t have a massive budget in the beginning to contact bigger and better-known companies. It was just a small trial. We were looking for a provider that worked with small startups and businesses.

I got to know Evermore’s marketing representative and looked at their past work. They were a relatively young group, and they were quite enthusiastic about our project. The scale and experience of the company already made them a suitable choice. We didn’t consciously compare their offer to those from other companies.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost of their work has been €5,000–€8,000 ($5,833–$9,333 USD). 

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with Evermore from June to October 2017, then signed up for another year of maintenance work. We’ve made some minor page modifications as well.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Everyone in our research group has been extremely impressed by the design of the website and the services provided. Evermore was very quick to reply to our questions and modification requests, and patient in training us after passing off administration of the site. None of us were IT-savvy, but they trained us through Skype and guided us through the website’s various functions.

The site helped us consolidate our online identity. We’ve had quite a few international scholars give talks at our university. Having a website like this has definitely helped convince them to come, since it showed them who had already been here and what topics had been addressed. It has made a huge difference in the way we present ourselves.

Our audience is fellows and colleagues more than investors and clients. Evermore has helped us expand and consolidate not only our identity, but also our professional network. People who were impressed with our work and online presence have started to contact us. They want to use our platform for announcements and promotional activities about their own publications or books.

How did Evermore perform from a project management standpoint?

Everything is done through Skype or email, and we also use Basecamp for collaborative work. They were quick to reply to messages and questions. Since we didn’t know how IT projects were run, we expected to progress slightly faster in the beginning. We set a deadline at the later stages of the discussion, once they were sure exactly what was involved. Once we had that, everything was done according to the schedule.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were approachable, especially their marketing official. The whole organization was very professional. We didn’t have business experience, but they improved our marketing, visibility, and online presence. They helped us rethink how we reach out to people.

Apart from their organizational competence and efficiency, and their speed in replying to our inquiries, I was most impressed with Evermore’s ability to help us think about the online space in a more businesslike way. We weren't expecting that.

In the beginning, we gave them some ideas to put into a product. Evermore asked us a lot of questions about goals, clickthrough rates, and competitors. We've learned quite a few things from their business mindset.
