A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.
Introduce your business and what you do there.
I started a publication in 1979. I’m the owner and president. We’ve been publishing a newspaper magazine in the Saginaw area for decades. We began as a print publication, but we’ve since transitioned to having a digital publication as well.
What challenges were you trying to address with Hierographics Inc?
Initially, I had someone else design our first website. However, as things evolved, we realized we wanted to redo the website and make it more user friendly on the backend and more dynamic.
What was the scope of their involvement?
They designed the website including the basic framework and layout. They did a lot of coding for the website, but I’m not sure what technology they used. They guided me through the process and helped ensure that I was getting the most cost-effective solution. Their advice has been great.
They helped us create a daily events feed and local events calendar where users, such as local business owners and arts organizations, could input information about upcoming events they were hosting.
In addition, they helped us set up an online voting platform for an annual music awards ceremony that we host.
What is the team composition?
I work with Andrew (CEO & President of the Board of Directors) and one of their developers.
How did you come to work with Hierographics Inc?
After sitting down with them and looking over our existing site, I felt comfortable working with them. Andrew was able to quickly point out areas for improvement and was really knowledgeable.
How much have you invested in them?
We’ve spent over $47,000 on their services so far.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in 2002. We did our largest overhaul of the website in 2008. Our relationship with them is ongoing.
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
They brought ideas that added new revenue streams to our online platform. We developed a premium version for users to be able to use our event systems calendar. We also sell banner ads on the website, and when they redid the website, they added different ad options for mobile websites and desktop websites.
How did Hierographics Inc perform from a project management standpoint?
They have strong project management. They’re very good at meeting deadlines. Even when they ran into issues and needed to push back deadlines for tasks, they were very communicative.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Their knowledge and ability to transfer their ideas into tangible solutions is most impressive.
Are there any areas they could improve?
Not really. We’ve run into issues over the years, but often, they weren’t the fault of Hierographics.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Organize your thoughts and what you want to include in your ask.
