Human's at the Centre

WE ARE HUMANS

We are humans, we act like humans, and we think like humans. And we call out anyone who does the opposite.

Collaboration is one of our core values. We collaborate with our clients for the best outcomes as a team.

You’ll get no buzz words here, or techno-jargon. We shoot straight and deliver projects which really work.

WE THRIVE ON PROBLEMS

Without problems, humans would be bored. We’re genetically engineered to seek out a better way of living, of doing business, or experiencing the world around us.

We believe that technology can immeasurably improve a business, and solve many problems which exist. We’re critical thinkers, creatives and planners with a deep understanding of humans.

WE MAKE CHANGE

Change is a natural part of human life. Without change we’d all still be living in caves painting the walls with ochre. We embrace change, but only one which has a reason. 

NO COOKIE CUTTERS

Every project we engage with is unique, from the very first meeting with our prospective customer through every stage of the process. We deliver technology which is based on the unique needs of our customers’ business to enhance.

WE’RE NOT “ORDER-TAKERS”

We ask why. We don’t just fill out a checklist. We question, we collaborate. Every business is different, and we strive to find the perfect marriage between our technology and the business we design it for.

Feedback summary: 

The initial release reduced incoming calls by 40%, and now over 50% of questions are handled directly by the functionality. Human Pixel Pty Ltd thoroughly documented the entire process and was communicative throughout. They consistently provided efficient, high-quality work.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I worked with them at a previous position with Equifax Australasia Workflow Solutions. We were a police and background checking company prior to our acquisition by Equifax.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Human Pixel Pty Ltd?

They joined us to develop and maintain our website. We then engaged them to build and implement new chatbot and AI functionality.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We worked together to create end-to-end decision trees and implement chatbot functionality into our site. They developed a web portal that gave us control over new bot development. They trained us to become self-sufficient and able to create our own channels and decision trees in the future. That was a big draw for us, since our business is constantly changing. Once we had everything in place, we could train the AI to run on its own, without a live user present.

They had all the code ready for us to implement into the platform. As they maintained multiple websites and streams, they found ways to include various components into each page. We made sure their code wouldn’t affect our existing colors or schematics and amalgamated their work into our existing frameworks. The code was high-quality, and they resolved any issues as they arose.

What is the team composition?

We worked very closely with Adam (Global Head of Projects, Human Pixel Pty Ltd), a project manager, and a BA.

How did you come to work with Human Pixel Pty Ltd?

The initial contact with them predated my time with the company. They were already maintaining our website through our previous marketing coordinator. We liked working with them, so approached them to build out our chat functionality.

How much have you invested with them?

The chat development equates to about $30,000 USD, and the website development put the whole project within a $50,000–$100,000 range.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project started around April 2016 and is ongoing. They were still developing chat functionality and were considering other financial services and credit reporting when I left the company at the end of 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We saw significant positive impacts. After the initial release of the first chat system in 2017, we saw a 40% reduction in phone calls, which condensed the time we spent supporting those calls. We sustained a high level of data processing, and as we developed the AI further, about 50% of user questions could bypass the live support team and be answered by a bot.

How did Human Pixel Pty Ltd perform from a project management standpoint?

I was in regular contact with the team throughout the process. They always provided sufficient documentation, and were on hand to clarify anything. There was a support platform for tracking issues or bugs, and we could ask questions through that channel as well.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their turnaround time is very impressive. They deliver high-quality code efficiently, and are much better than other agencies of their size. They always provided white glove service and had a very hands-on approach.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The only improvement might be a more responsive logging protocol for issues. Other than that, we’ve had a very positive experience. I don’t have any real critique of their methods.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Maintain constant contact with them and be ready to move quickly. It’s in your best interest to be proactive and to communicate regularly with them.

Feedback summary: 

The site has been successfully migrated. Expect an amiable and communicative partner who provides tracking and listens to feedback. Human Pixel Pty Ltd works efficiently to meet project deadlines.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the project manager of the innovation section at Elabs and I work on a team with two developers. Elabs combines IT services with innovation. Our customers want to create added value or utilize our services to reinvent their business, and we offer support for products, industry solutions, special services, and platforms.

We establish optimum IT conditions for personal and business performance, with guarantees of quality, security, and flexibility.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Human Pixel Pty Ltd?

Our web support service, Muse, was scheduled to expire, and we wanted to migrate our website to WordPress.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted our new WordPress site to be as similar as possible to our original site, though we were prepared for some slight design changes, along with replacing some pictures.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

My colleague chose them, I believe due to their online reputation and their affordable pricing.

Describe the project in detail.

My colleague participated in discussions of project scope with Human Pixel Pty Ltd. I communicated visual design specifications with their project manager, and I tested changes after they were implemented. They fixed some issues before finalizing the page.

What was the team composition?

I briefly worked with one project manager at the beginning, and then I was transferred to a new project manager with whom I communicated for the rest of the engagement. I had occasional contact with their program director as well.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The website has successfully launched.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their project manager provided me with weekly updates. I received feedback and they implemented any changes in our requirements quickly. However, our feedback wasn’t always incorporated fully into their changes and sometimes required a second test.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They have strong communication skills and they’re a friendly team to work with. They met deadlines thanks to working at a good pace.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, we’re very satisfied.

Feedback summary: 

The team’s development and integration has optimized internal systems and increased efficiency. Their knowledge and professionalism have proved invaluable and improved overall competence. Other strengths include communication and punctuality.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the managing director of a B2B digital services company. We provide internet and communications, business process support, marketing, web design, hosting, and management.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Human Pixel?

We wanted them to fully automate our internal processes. They work with Zoho Office Suite, and we use that for our tech stack.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We engaged with Human Pixel to centralize digital infrastructure for our clients. That’s grown into other projects, such as building bespoke systems for internal use, and an e-commerce platform that integrates all our sales systems. We’re integrating different APIs into one CMS, along with services we sell, and integrating that into our accounting CRM and project management system. Future goals include automating our web development so we can sell custom-made sites.

What is the team composition?

We worked with 6–7 people. Our main point of contact is Adam (Global Head of Projects, Human Pixel).

How did you come to work with Human Pixel?

I found them through a Google search.

How much have you invested with them?

We have a total budget of $50,000 for bespoke e-commerce and Zoho automation. They work in sprints of about two weeks for about $10,500 each.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in June 2018 and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I have no specific hard metrics, but they’ve streamlined a lot of our business systems and improved efficiency. They’ve hit the mark on everything we were looking for.

How did Human Pixel perform from a project management standpoint?

Many of their communication procedures mimicked what we were trying to build. They’re automated, whether email sequences around the proposal stages or flagging for phone calls. It’s been great. They’re always up to date with what’s going on with our project, who’s on our team, and what we’re expecting.

What did you find most impressive about them?

After trying to engage with other vendors in the past, we appreciated Human Pixel’s understanding of the systems we build. We knew they could deliver on what they were saying. They introduced a level of knowledge and professionalism that was a weak point of ours, and it’s propped up our business.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, we’re satisfied with everything so far.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Clients should make sure the provider’s model fits what they’re looking for, whether they’re product- or price-driven. If they’re upfront with Human Pixel, the team will build out a scope that makes sense for the business.
