The Review
Feedback summary: 

The solution drastically reduced administrative time spent managing each site. GearedApp clearly grasped the project and business goals. While their documentation could be more concise for non-technical clients, the team excelled at project management and stayed aligned on expectations.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the marketing executive at AWDis, the number one provider of quality garments to the printwear and promotion market worldwide. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire GearedApp?

We have eight different brands under the AWDis umbrella, which meant eight different WordPress sites. These were time consuming to update and difficult to manage, so we asked GearedApp to create a platform that encompassed all of our sites. 

What were your goals for this project?

We needed to bring all of our websites together on one platform. This would make it easier for us to update each site on a daily basis while still ensuring that we could work with them individually, too. A cleaner, more user-friendly look was also a high priority.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We've been working with GearedApp for a number of years, so it was an easy decision for us. They understand our needs and wants and shared our vision for the end goal.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

GearedApp designed, developed, and configured a completely customized platform for us, one that brought all of our websites together but allowed us to still update each site manually. They then built a completely new admin dashboard tailored to our specific product needs. 

On top of that, they keyed in some technical information for us, and took the time to go through all of our questions, providing us with updates each week.

What was the team composition?

Initially, we met with the full team, which included both of their founders and their head of development. As the project became more specific, we worked closely with the developer, with the founders checking in each month or so.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They developed and launched our solution on time. This means that we now spend much less time updating the websites and also have the ability to add customized banners, giving the websites a more modern, fresh feel.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project management was great. We understood what they were trying to achieve, and we also understood what was expected of us to make it happen.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

First, I was impressed that they shared our vision and really got behind the project. Second, their communication was great—they were able to adapt to our ideas very quickly and made swift changes.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, there is very little that they could improve, but they could provide a clearer document of fixes and bugs for people who are less experienced with technical terms.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder and president of EnteroBiotix, a biotechnology company that focuses on developing medicinal products to treat infections caused by drug-resistant organisms.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire GearedApp?

We hired GearedApp to build a website that supports our commercial and strategic objectives.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a clean and professional website that captured all of our key business activities and strategy.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

During an exploration process, we reviewed the services of several potential companies. GearedApp stood out because of their attention to detail and understanding of our needs. They are highly approachable and a great culture fit. We also read positive reviews about them.

Describe the project in detail.

Before we began the project, we discussed the timeline and budget. We developed the initial wireframes and content, which was reviewed by their team and amended. GearedApp built the entire site without further input from our side.

What was the team composition?

Josh (Director & Interface Designer, GearedApp) was our project manager throughout the entire process. A graphic design and branding agency also supported us. Their teams worked closely together to integrate their designs and tools into the website.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Feedback from key stakeholders was positive. The website has helped drive more traffic and inquiries. GearedApp was highly responsive throughout the process. It was a pleasure working with them.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Josh responded promptly and answered any questions, even discussing on weekends and outside of regular working hours. We spoke almost daily during the building and testing period. We talked through email and phone. During the beginning, we would have meetings through Skype. Our meetings with the branding agency were also through Skype.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed with GearedApp’s attentiveness and responsiveness. Their passion for web design and patience were also noteworthy.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I couldn’t fault them on anything.

Feedback summary: 

The apps have already improved drastically and are much faster to download thanks to GearedApp’s rapid start. They provide regular updates and communicate all potential delays, displaying an inspiring professionalism. Their entire team possesses top-level industry knowledge and passion.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m an assistant marketing manager for Aviagen, a poultry breeding company. We supply day old grandparent parent stock chicks to customers in over 100 countries under the Arbor Acres, Indian River, and Ross brands.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire GearedApp?

We wanted to develop apps for our three global brands.

What were your goals for this project?

These apps would allow customers to access data quickly while they’re out in the field so they don’t have to carry printed documents with them at all times.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Our previous app developer wasn't working out and they found GearedApp for us. We had an initial meeting with them were impressed by how professional they were. They even gave us realistic timelines for the development.

Describe the project in detail.

GearedApp took over for another developer that had been working on our apps for two years, improving its design and functionality. The apps provide location-specific product data and availability, both metric and imperial measurement systems, and offer users multiple choices of languages. The app remembers a user’s region, measurement system, and language after the select these options the first time.

What was the team composition?

We work with a project manager, Lara, and a lead developer, Andzrej. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

In just five months, GearedApp made several changes that we would’ve been waiting on for a year with our previous developer. They’ve improved both the apps’ design and functionality and dramatically reduced their download time.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The full team has been great and helpful. They communicate well and keep us up to date on everything, even the delays they’re experiencing. We get weekly development emails from them and chat a few times a week about their progress to date.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They all have amazing knowledge about app development, especially our lead developer who’s always clued-in and ready to go. Professional people like our developer and our project manager give me confidence in the whole company.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They’ve been great to work with, so I have no complaints.
