Web design
 
$50,000 to $199,999
Project summary: 

The client is Duralee Fabric, a design, marketing, and wholesale distributor of fabrics and trimmings for upholstery and furnishing applications, as well as a fine furniture collection provider. The client needed its previous website to be completely redesigned for better e-commerce capabilities. Hudson Integrated was selected for this undertaking on the basis of several interviews with a number of vendors. Duralee Fabric maintains an ongoing relationship with Hudson Integrated for the continuous enhancement of the company’s website and the improvement of the site’s SEO [search engine optimization] capabilities.

Feedback summary: 

Duralee Fabric is more than satisfied with the work of Hudson Integrated. The agency has built the new website from the ground up and has served as the coordinator for several other agencies working on different aspects of the site. Hudson Integrated has also taken the lead in developing a responsive version of the site. Since going online in 2013, the client has more than tripled the percent of revenue coming from e-commerce, and is consequently more than delighted to recommend the work of Hudson Integrated to others.

"Once the site built by Hudson Integrated went live, we tripled that percentage, reaching around 16-17% of our total sales."

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Duralee Fabric is located in Hauppauge, Long Island. We’re a B2B [business-to-business] company providing fabrics, trimming, and custom furniture to the trade.

What is your position?

I am the Chief Information Officer [CIO].

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Hudson Integrated?

We needed a complete redesign of our website, which went live in January 2013. Our previous website was not well enabled for e-commerce, and we needed a custom shopping cart for our transactions.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of your work with Hudson Integrated in greater detail.

Hudson Integrated developed the entire company website for us, including content management and e-commerce functionalities. Our customers now have the ability to self-serve in terms of creating users for their companies and employees. We have a custom search engine that Hudson Integrated developed with a third-party. The search engine came as part of a toolkit that Hudson Integrated fitted into different parts of our site in order to enable different types of searches.

The site was custom-developed in .NET. We gave Hudson Integrated a set of wireframes and specifications on the basis of which the cost of the project was agreed on. We’ve worked with three other vendors on the site, but Hudson Integrated was our main developer. Their team acted as the bandleader, while our other partners wrote the APIs [application program interfaces] for the Enterprise Resource Planning system used to submit inquiries and orders, as well as manage our image searching system. Hudson Integrated worked with these companies within a fairly short period of time, making a custom website, with a custom shopping cart, search engine, and administrative tools. This was all done from scratch.

More recently, they’ve worked on improving our SEO by comparing our site to those of our competitors. They have also looked at the types of searches that result in visits to our page. Hudson Integrated is changing some of the tagging in our pages to make them more compatible with the kinds of searches we want to attract.

In addition to this, we’ve also put in some hooks on the site to gather Facebook metrics for visitors who don’t log on. We can see where those people are spending their time, and use that information in numerous ways. A Facebook user belongs to a community in which they share content. We can take that information and put it up against the profiles we have for people in our line of work. Designers will be more likely to have designer friends in related businesses. We can reach out to people in those demographics and advertise to them. We’ve worked with Hudson Integrated as well as with another marketing firm for this purpose. They’ve helped us put hooks into our page and track what our users are doing.

How did you come to work with Hudson Integrated?

We interviewed a few candidates before settling on Hudson Integrated.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

The total development cost of the website was $160,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in May of 2012. The site went live in January of 2013, but it was available for internal demos in December, 2012. We’ve enhanced it since that time, creating many additional features.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics, metrics or other feedback from this engagement?

When the site was initially launched in 2013, people loved it. One of our key measures of success is e-commerce. Our previous site had only rudimentary e-commerce capabilities, and prior to 2013, we only received between 5-6% of our sales revenue from the website. Once the site built by Hudson Integrated went live, we tripled that percentage, reaching around 16-17% of our total sales.

We now offer many more features through which users can make searches, manage projects, pay bills online, enter credit card details, and so on.

In 2015, we had 1.1 million sessions, 427,000 users, and 6,383,000 page views on our site, which comes down to half-a-million page views per month. We’re trending even higher for the current year. We receive these stats from both Google Analytics and from Hudson Integrated themselves.

How did Hudson Integrated perform from a project management standpoint?

Hudson Integrated was able to hit deadlines, which has been key for us. They never commit to something that they won’t be able to deliver.

What distinguishes Hudson Integrated from other providers?

Hudson Integrated is a small group, so they can be very flexible, versatile, and responsive to our requirements. They are leading us in a number of ways. For example, in 2013, when we launched our site, it would work fine on desktops, but performed poorly on small devices. Consequently, in 2014 we embarked on a process to make the site more responsive. The entire platform was recoded as a result. Hudson Integrated told us that they didn’t think it would be a good idea to bother with building a separate mobile app, but instead we should make a responsive version of the website.

I belong to a group called The CIO Council. During a group meeting, I discussed the work we were doing with Hudson Integrated and asked the fifty people present how many of them were building responsive websites. Out of all of them, only about five or six said they were starting to look at this. An equal number said that they’d heard about the concept, but hadn’t done anything about it. Most of the people at the meeting had no idea what we were talking about. We were early in the game with respect to mobile responsiveness, but our site was completely optimized, from our shopping cart to every other functionality. This was completely due to Hudson Integrated.

Is there anything Hudson Integrated could have improved or done differently?

We sometimes have resource issues. Hudson Integrated is growing, and they have other clients. It hasn’t been a big problem, and in fact was addressed a year ago, when Hudson Integrated hired some people to meet our demands. This is more of an observation than a complaint.

RATINGS

We ask that you rate Hudson Integrated on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the best score.

How would you rate Hudson Integrated for the quality of their service and deliverables?

5 - They’re responsive, and their quality of work is very good.

How would you rate them for scheduling, as in meeting deadlines and compliance with project timelines?

5 - We haven’t blown any major deadlines.

How would you rate them for cost, as in value and conformance with project estimates?

4 - Hudson Integrated’s price is competitive for our type of work, and they’re strong in terms of tech abilities. One area in which they are lacking is in graphic design and visuals. We sometimes had to go through a few more iterations than I would’ve liked.

How likely are you to recommend Hudson Integrated to a friend or colleague?

5 - I wouldn’t recommend Hudson Integrated for very small projects, but rather for serious development work. Not that Hudson Integrated wouldn’t take on smaller projects, but their strong point is being able to do custom work and develop things that would not be obtainable through the standard, out-of-the-box website developer.

How would you rate your overall experience collaborating with Hudson Integrated?

Web design
 
Less than $10,000
Project summary: 

The client is MOVE Bumpers, a designer of bumper kits for trucks. They were looking for greater exposure and turned to Hudson to help build a website that would provide that visibility.

Feedback summary: 

MOVE Bumpers is very pleased with the work delivered by Hudson Integrated. The agency successfully developed the website, and it has received very positive comments from the client’s business and banking communities.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

MOVE LLC is a bumper company in Lewistown, Montana. We’ve been in business for two years, and 99% of our activity consists of building do-it-yourself bumper kits for trucks. Our kits come in five main pieces which customers fit and weld themselves.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Hudson Integrated?

We needed to get greater exposure for our company, so we were looking for a developer that could build a website for us.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement.

Initially, Hudson Integrated was tasked only with building our website. We weren’t looking to do any type of marketing with them, but we engaged them for those services later on.

How did you come to work with Hudson Integrated?

I researched a few US web design agencies online, narrowing down my choices to two or three companies that I liked. I then obtained some quotes and references. One thing that impressed me about Hudson right from the beginning was that once I started searching for web designers, their name came up everywhere.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

The original development cost was between $6,000 and $8,000. After eight months, we invested more into the site by implementing e-commerce functionalities.

What is the status of this engagement?

The website was launched in August of 2014.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics, metrics or other feedback from this engagement?

The site Hudson Integrated built looks extremely professional. We showed it to other business professionals and loan committees who were all impressed with the quality of the website, which is very easy to navigate and very clear. I am very happy with the site.

How did Hudson Integrated perform from a project management standpoint?

The development process took some time due to changes we requested on our end. Hudson was always timely.

What distinguishes Hudson Integrated from other providers?

They’re not simply a web design or marketing company. We’ve called Hudson for various issues, and they’ve proved to be instrumental in getting our business known. They’ve helped us with anything from tech support, marketing and web design, to business questions in general. They’re a one-stop-shop, which we have very much appreciated.

Is there anything Hudson Integrated could have improved or done differently?

No. The work that they do for us is constantly evolving based on our needs. If something doesn’t work, we will choose a different direction. There is always some trial-and-error.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We are a fitness startup.

What is your role and responsibilities?

I'm the founder. I was the designer for trying to implement what we wanted and get to from my head onto development and website.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with Hudson Integrated Web Agency?

We wanted to find a company to create an online mobile fitness app.

Please describe the scope of their work.

Web development, mobile app development, and they also take care of my online marketing through Facebook, Twitter, Google AdWords, and iTunes. It's Android and iOS.

SOLUTION

What was your process for selecting Hudson Integrated Web Agency with which to work?

I talked to three different developers. When I met with Hudson, they were as excited about the project as I was. When I was discussing with them the potential you could tell they were meeting as team of 10 to 12 people and discussing the project even before we had our second and third call. 

The other shops were only playing it by ear waiting for me to come to them with the project. They weren't putting any thought or decision making into the process. It's not that I wanted Hudson to make my decisions for me but, at the same time, it was a big venture. So, I needed to bounce the ideas. I appreciated the feedback they were giving me.

Can you give a sense of the size of the initiative in dollar terms or a personnel work-hour figure?

It was from $50,000 to $200,000

When was the work completed?

It's ongoing. The stopping of the engagement is just in talks to be bought by a couple different companies. So, if that happens, the project would stop immediately. I would probably start another project within 24 hours of that.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Do you have any statistics or metrics to track improvement from the project?

The projections we had are all doubled, so it's very successful. They were modest projections. For the small, modest increments I had planning this project out, we've surpassed all those beginning milestones. It's going better than expected.

Are you satisfied with their performance?

Absolutely.

Is there anything unique or special about Hudson Integrated Web Agency that really makes them stand out compared to other business partners?

It's hard to say. I just put my blinders on and decided to go with them. A couple of the other development shops had their shot, but lost my project. They didn't impress me.

What advice would you give to future clients of theirs?

Make sure you have your project mapped out and express what your vision is. They take it from there. The document they provide you for the build out is phenomenal. My cousin, who also does tech startups, he said all the companies he's been with, which are $5 million to $10 million dollar startups. He said if we'd produce documents like that all those companies would be $50 million to $100 million companies.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or that you might do differently?

The only thing I'd say I'd do differently is I had a vision of the marketing process, and it's in line with how I wanted it in the beginning, but we had to do some trial and error. My ideas weren't backed by a lot of statistics, but I'd say on the marketing plan, the only thing I look back on is the first three months, I wanted to go in a certain direction. But, I let them do their research and, after those three months, I narrowed down the field and said I wanted to focus more on a different strategy, which we did and they were happy to accommodate. 

We ask you to rate Hudson Integrated Web Agency on a scale of one to five, with five being the top score. What would you give them out of five for the quality of their work?

Five.

For schedule, as in being on time and meeting deadlines?

Four. I only say that because none of us knew what Apple would do and they kind of screwed with us. It wasn't Hudson's fault. It was just Apple.

For cost, as in value for your money and sticking with the original estimates?

Five.

For the overall score?

Five.

How likely are you to recommend Hudson Integrated Web Agency to a colleague?

Five. I've given their name out three times already.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We’re an internationally based online backup storage company. We backup information to the cloud. We backup computers, iPads, iPods, and the like. We allow customers to guard from of data loss or if they need to backup information for any other reason.

What is your role and responsibilities?

I’m the founder and CEO.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with Hudson Integrated Web Agency?

Initially, we had two types of developers. We had internal developers writing the code for the back-end. So, we had that piece completed in-house.

We needed a vendor to create a website that would be the connection between the users and the back-end, which is extremely difficult because we’re dealing with multiple API [application programming interface] pulls and a lot of e-commerce going on back and forth. The system also has a mail system built in to help customers keep track of what they’re doing.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

Design and development. They do our online marketing also. They do so much for us. They run Facebook, Twitter, all aspects of social media and different advertising as well. They’re our liaison with a filmmaking company that makes videos for us. They help get all that set up. They integrated the back-end to the front end seamlessly. 

They’re working on mobile development now as well. It’s a lot of work. They haven’t gone ahead of schedule, but they’ve never fallen behind schedule. They’re always on target with what they need to do. They’re always in communication with me, and they do it right the first time, so I never have to ask them to redo work.

What was your process for selecting Hudson Integrated Web Agency with which to work?

We went to three or four different vendors in two years trying to find the perfect vendor. It was luck that we bumped into Hudson. We wanted to keep it local but, when we went to a local company for six months and spent a fortune of money, the whole thing fell apart. We subsequently went to an international company and they fell apart. Then, we went to a local family out of Long Island and they fell apart. 

We were really desperate at that time. We were looking for a reputable company. There are so many companies out there. It’s hard to find one that’s reputable. Someone recommended Hudson and I went down to meet them. I was impressed and decided we’d give them a much smaller retainer than everyone else until they came through. But, they did come through. They did everything perfectly.

Can you give a sense of the size of the initiative in dollar terms or a personnel work-hour figure?

It was $50,000 and up depending on the project. 

When was the work completed?

It’s ongoing work. We’ve been working with them two years. We have many more years of work to do together because I was so impressed how they handled this backup that I actually have them doing a few other projects that I’ve been working on with other investors. They’re quite amazing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Do you have any statistics or metrics to track improvement from the project?

I set projections for all major metrics when we started the engagement. They were modest projections. For the small, modest increments I had planning this project out, we’ve surpassed all those beginning milestones. It’s going better than expected, and I would say we have doubled our goal in many cases.

Are you satisfied with their performance?

Absolutely.

Is there anything unique or special about Hudson that really makes them stand out compared to other business partners?

It’s hard to say. I just put my blinders on and decided to go with them. A couple of the other development shops had their chance to win my business but didn’t. The other companies didn’t impress me like Hudson Agency did.

What advice would you give to future clients of theirs?

Make sure you have your project mapped out and express what that is. Hudson will take the project from there. The document they provide you for the build out is phenomenal. My cousin who also works for tech startups said all the companies he’s been with which are $5 million to $10 million dollar startups would’ve generated hundreds of millions of dollars if they could produce documents as professional as Hudson does.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or that you might do differently?

The only thing I’d say I’d do differently is I had a vision of the marketing process, and it’s in line with how I wanted it in the beginning but we had to do some trial and error testing with Hudson. 

My plan wasn’t backed by a lot of statistics. When we created the marketing plan, for the first three months I wanted to go in a certain direction, but I let them do their research and after those three months I narrowed down the field and said I wanted to focus more on our current strategy, which we did, and they were happy to accommodate.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your firm as well as your role and responsibilities.

I’m the IT manager. Our company is the world’s largest supplier of firearm parts and accessories. We’re a mail-order business.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What was your goal for the work with Hudson Horizons?

We had a website, but it was growing way too busy, way too fast. It wasn’t very modern in appearance. We needed a scalable, modern-looking, definitely faster-performing website.

SOLUTION

What was your process for selecting them to work with on this project?

We wanted someone who was in driving range of our business because we find that you really have to have a face-to-face personal relationship with someone who wasn’t afraid to come and talk with us so. We wanted actually to meet individuals as opposed to someone just on the other end of a website. We selected probably a dozen of them that were within driving range of our location. We chose them after interviewing all 12.

Please describe the scope of the work.

There was both design and development. We also paid them to support our website, so we don’t have to monitor it. We don’t have to see when there are errors. It wasn’t just, “We wanted you to build it and see you later.”

How much of the design elements did you provide to them?

We let them handle that completely. I just approve designs. Sometimes, they give us a couple of options.

Can you provide a sense of the size of that project or, if not that in monetary terms, just the amount of hours approximately they dedicated to your work?

I wouldn’t be able to. I’m sorry. It’s huge. We’re one of the largest e-commerce sites. Almost anyone we interviewed talked about it. We have a half million SKUs [stock keeping units].

Is the work ongoing?

Yes. Originally, we hired them for one project to redesign, build, and complete the website. Now, it’s an ongoing project because we need functionality, we want changes, and we want updates. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What are the results of the projects?

Phenomenal. We signed up again for a whole other year with them to maintain and update and monitor our site.

Do you happen to have any statistics or metrics that you could share about the success of the site?

We’re very tied to world events, politics. I can tell you complaints about performance. We’re down to from thousands of questions a week to only a couple hundred. At least 80 percent of the complaints have dropped right off.

How did Hudson Horizons perform?

They are very personable. That’s why we actually chose them. They took the time to come just like the others. They sat, talked, and gave us feedback. You aren’t just brushed off on one guy. You’re assigned a team. You deal with the entire team. You don’t have to worry about one individual, one guy going on vacation. They’re a full-size company.

Looking back on the work so far, is there anything that you think they could improve upon or something you might do differently looking back?

They’ve never done anything on our scale. It was new to them this time, but that’s not their fault. One of the reasons we went with them was because of their history and their sales. I think they might have done things differently if they’ve done something on this scale before. I don’t have complaints about it.

We ask you to rate them from one to five with five being the best score. To start, what would you give them out of five for the quality of their work?

MOVE Bumpers

MOVE Bumpers contacted Hudson looking to promote its custom bumper service through digital marketing. As the Hudson team began research and strategy, it was clear that MOVE had an untapped online market for DIY bumper kits. What started as a local online marketing push quickly transitioned to a nationwide digital marketing strategy.
