Feedback summary: 

The website met expectations and was launched in a quick turnaround. The partner is happy with the deliverables and overall engagement. Houle Digital paid great attention to detail and made tweaks as needed. Diligence and tenacity are hallmarks of their high-quality work.

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’m a photographer and the owner of finedetail83.ca.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Houle Digital?

I started posting pictures of my artwork on Instagram. I got about 10,000 followers and thought it’d be great to branch out and get a website going. I approached a couple of companies and got started in an engagement.

However, my previous vendor disappeared and gave me a ton of excuses for months. I fired him and lost $500. That’s when I found Houle Digital and engaged with them. I started talking to Daniel (Owner) and told him my problem with the previous vendor.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Houle Digital designed and built my website. It features a blog and a picture gallery. The website also introduces me as an artist, shows my work, and features my practical theory. It’s a place to share my thoughts and give people direction. I have plans to add an e-commerce store and tutorial section in the future.

What is the team composition?

I worked directly with Daniel.

How did you come to work with Houle Digital?

I talked to a lot of web developers and looked at prices. I found Daniel and thought that I’d plug into his youthful talent. After talking for a couple of days, I knew I had made the right choice because it felt natural, and it was easy to get ahold of him.

How much have you invested with them?

I invested less than $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project ran from August–September 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The site went live within 12 days. It looks and works great, and I’m happy with it. Daniel was very diligent. He listened to what I asked for and delivered on expectations. What’s more, he made whatever tweaks I wanted. The process was easy.

How did Houle Digital perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management was excellent — a total ten out of ten. Daniel met the deadline. I was so impressed that I wanted to give him an extra $200 and he said no, thank you. He was really good and ethical.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Daniel was invested in my success, not just ticking off the boxes. He’s younger and doesn’t have all the experience in the world, but he makes up for it in tenacity and sheer drive. I plan on working with him again.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, there isn’t anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be direct and tell him what you want. Have a clear plan, lay it out, and then Daniel will take it from there and produce a good product for you.

Feedback summary: 

Houle Digital managed to create the website earlier than what the client expected. The team managed to follow the instructions and create several revisions to perfect the project. The team was provided simple and daily communication.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Founder & CEO of Gump Training - the company provides professional software training for various organizations. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Houle Digital, and what were your goals?

Houle Digital was tasked with creating a new website for Gump Training. The critical tasks were to ensure that the new website is modern, clean, user friendly, and optimized for conversions and search engines.

SOLUTION

How did you select Houle Digital and what were the deciding factors?

I found Houle Digital through Kijiji and spoke with their Founder, Daniel Houle. I was pleased with our conversation on Zoom and decided to give them a shot.

Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and technologies used.

This was a complete website build, from design concepts, writing and implementation. Each page was built carefully with drafts sent to me within days. The site was built in WordPress using Elementor.

How many people from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?

Daniel was my only contact - which might have been the best part of the experience. I was communicating directly with the web developer, rather than someone who would act as an intermediary. This meant that everything I communicated was understood and implemented the way I wanted it.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any measurable outcomes of the project or general feedback about the deliverables?

I had a wonderful experience. I explained my requirements to Daniel, and he understood my vision for the website. He made revisions until everything was absolutely perfect. I now have the website that I always wanted. And it only took 3 weeks to complete!

Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timelines.

It was very simple - Daniel and I spoke directly on a regular basis. That was it. Nothing complicated about the communication process. Everything was done within hours or days. It was clear he was focused on my project and making my site perfect for me!

What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?

Results. I wanted a beautiful website, and that’s what I got… in a very short period of time!

Are there any areas for improvement or something they could have done differently?

Every company can improve… I’d say that Houle Digital’s most valuable asset is the fact that they work collaboratively with their clients and provide unlimited revisions. They’re currently a small company, so it’s easy to do that. However, in the future (when they get bigger), they might have trouble providing the same level of collaborative service with unlimited revisions. My biggest piece of advice is to try to maintain that most valuable asset, even as they scale.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a self-employed actor/singer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Houle Digital?

I hired Houle Digital to design and maintain my website.

What were your goals for this project?

I had specific aspects of my skillset that I wanted to showcase. I wanted a clean digital business card of sorts.

SOLUTION

How did you select Houle Digital?

I found Houle Digital online. I looked at his past work for previous clients and referred to reviews.

Describe the project in detail.

Daniel and I set up a Zoom call. He asked me to prepare some of the intentions I had and what I was attempting to accomplish with my new site. I stated the areas of focus I wanted to showcase along with some visual ideas I had to present those points. He then took those ideas and presented me with a beginning template for my site.

He helped me understand how to navigate the design tool to play around with the ideas as I told him I liked being creative and would attempt to try a few things I had in mind. After I played around with the site, I asked him for help in certain areas, for his opinion on how it looked, etc.

He was honest, gave me pointers about what was not necessarily professional looking and I asked him to make adjustments and correct those areas. I loved what he came up with and my finished product was clean, easy to read, and reflective of my personality.

What was the team composition?

It was just Daniel and myself. We both had ideas and he made them shine.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

My site is easy to navigate, clear, and presents my original music in a way that is very easy to access.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was very smooth. Easy back and forth list of tweaks and changes made and sent back. And with great speed.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Daniel had availability, ideas, and good communication.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We always felt like our interest was their highest concern. We had no areas that needed improvement.
