What was the scope of their involvement?
We came to the table with a blank slate, and we hoped to use them in place of an internal web team. We ultimately engaged them for server management, hosting management, and all our backend needs. We hired another agency to manage the design, so as that agency finalized pieces, Fueled on Bacon coded all the work. Initially, we used a custom CMS built on Node.js framework, but we’ve since migrated to WordPress with their help.
We needed to control different functions of the website, and turn them on or off independently. The CMS needed to support that modular web structure, and we needed that flexibility to tell our company story and our product story through the website. That story included several hard-coded, website-based animations that needed to be programmed frame by frame.
We expected we would need full commerce and funnel functionality to generate pre-orders, and a vehicle configurator function with 360-degree views and pricing options for custom builds. We also wanted to generate more leads with the data coming through the CRM. We discovered our needs weren’t as robust for the near future, which was part of the impetus to move to WordPress.
What is the team composition?
We have a main point of contact who acts as the business lead, and a dedicated day-to-day project manager. We worked with a minimum of three developers and one designer, but the full team may be bigger.
How did you come to work with Fueled on Bacon?
Our design agency highly recommended them, so we approached them for this project.
How much have you invested with them?
To date, we’ve spent around $500,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in December 2017. We’re still working with their team, but the largest part of the collaboration wrapped up at the beginning of 2019.
