Feedback summary: 

HYPE4 strives to achieve goals in a timely and cost-efficient manner. The team’s outstanding flexibility and responsiveness have led to a long-term engagement.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the product development and marketing director for an independent analytical center. We deal with ongoing monitoring and detailed analysis of the capital market. The company also develops tools supporting the sale of financial products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire HYPE4?

We hired HYPE4 to code the frontend of an innovative e-commerce platform dedicated to individual investors.

What were your goals for this project?

Our main goal was to create a ground-breaking web application for the Polish investment funds market. It would include innovative tools to analyze and monitor investment funds, an interactive basket and portfolio, as well as functionalities based on robo-advisory techniques.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were recommended by a company that has worked with them on other interactive projects. There were five other vendors, but HYPE4 presented the highest quality.

Describe the project in detail.

They’re designing and coding the frontend layer of our online platform as well as the custom charts library. The project began with a discovery workshop that let us reach a mutual understanding of business challenges and goals. After they complete each functionality, we test the received part and report errors.

What was the team composition?

The project team has about 12 people, but certain individuals would come and go, depending on the skills needed. HYPE4’s team consist of five people: three web developers, one designer, and one project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What outcomes or results can you share that demonstrate progress and/or success?

We plan to launch the platform in the second quarter of 2018. The best recommendation is that we have entrusted HYPE4 with a new project with a higher budget.

How effective was the project management?

The project is being carried out within our expected timeframe. We divided the work into six stages, with sprint workshops every month. We use InVision, Sketch, Basecamp, Trello, and Skype to communicate. So far, we’ve only slightly exceeded the overall budget by about 10%.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

HYPE4 has impressed us with their flexibility. They provide good value for money and quick response to changes in the project. We’ve found that they are truly a result-driven partner.

What tips or recommendations do you have?

We suggest that HYPE4 spend more time analyzing the customer's needs in depth prior to commencing development work.

Feedback summary: 

HYPE4’s methods of communication could be improved by utilizing project management tools. Due to the project’s spontaneity, the site experienced initial development issues. However, their team is responsive, so any problems were quickly addressed. Overall, the site accomplishes project goals.

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 an engagement manager for a cable television network. I’m responsible for overseeing our online and social efforts.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with HYPE4?

We needed to build a website that we could use as a hub for our video content.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had already had a video player and URL when we approached HYPE4. We asked them to develop the website and create a CMS that we could use to coordinate content publishing. They delivered on that and made additional improvements per our feedback. The completed website includes a home page that displays content teasers to direct people the video page. They also created a tagging system to categorize content and allow users to quickly search for the types videos they want to view.

To ensure the final product included all the UI/UX elements we wanted, we collaborated with them to produce the design layout of the webpage. They’d come to us with a design prototype and make changes relative to our creative team’s feedback. Specifically, they designed a carousel on the website with rotating informational images. We’ve worked with them on three projects and they’ve updated the platform each time.

What is the team composition?

Their CEO was our primary point of contact. We spoke with their designers once, but only to resolve a technical issue.

How did you come to work with HYPE4?

They were referred to me by someone else in our company who had worked with them before. They were said to be affordable and reliable, so I reached out to them.

How much have you invested with them?

In total, we probably spent around €12,000–€15,000 ($14,794–$18,493 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from May 2016–November 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They delivered a product that works the way it’s supposed to and was well-suited to budget. However, the engagement was not without a few issues. First, some of the teasers or images we uploaded to the site suddenly disappeared. At one point, our servers overloaded and the site crashed. That was our fault, but then the main page displayed a certain amount of code that it wasn’t supposed too. Luckily, I contacted HYPE4 and they immediately fixed the issues. They’re really responsive in that way. Once we were able to adequately communicate our needs, they performed very well.

How did HYPE4 perform from a project management standpoint?

Their communication and management skills were reasonable considering the nature of the project. Correspondence between us was loose throughout the process. We’d ask them to do a task and they’d agree via phone or email. We didn’t follow a schedule or a management system to track progress. However, the jobs we gave them were somewhat last minute, so that’s likely a reason we never operated in a structured fashion. Their CEO was insightful and I had an excellent experience with him.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The price-to-quality balance was spot on. They’re inexpensive and were able to deliver something fast that also looked good. Some aspects needed a bit more polishing, but we were asking them to work under a lot of pressure. Overall, I’m very happy with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Using a tool like Jira would help structure workflow and facilitate communication. Providing clients with a detailed overview of what’s going on throughout the process would be helpful.

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 the marketing manager for a children’s television platform. We’re a linear TV channel.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Hype4?

We wanted to reach out to our target, which is children. The main goal is to attract them to our channel.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They created the website, applications, and any other assets we need for the campaign, including the concepts and graphic design. The main goal is to attract children and give them fun content to play with. For example, they can upload a picture and add television-related graphics and stickers. From a marketing perspective, we then encourage the children to share them. The photos that they can create in the application should be so good and funny enough to be shared on online, on social media, etc.

They also did another campaign for us and more than one application. There was a Christmas application with a Christmas tree styler. They created applications with all options of desktop, iOS, and Android.

What is the team composition?

There was usually 1 point of contact to manage the project. If I needed to deal with the technical stuff, it was possible to reach out to the technical guys directly.

How did you come to work with Hype4?

Usually, when we want a marketing campaign for the channel, we arrange a pitch and invite 3 or more creative agencies. Then they come up with the creative concept for the campaign. Someone showed me an application that Hype4 had developed. After seeing it, I thought it was a good idea to invite them to take part in our pitch. That’s how we started to collaborate with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2014 until December 2017. The Christmas campaign was from October 2017 until December 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The Christmas application is live. It was introduced in 2016 and it was so successful that we repeated it in 2017 as an extension. It’s really good and there aren’t any technical issues. Everything was delivered on time. If we had any requests, such as for extra decorations or extra functions, they were really flexible. They delivered all our needs very quickly.

The feedback was that everything was good; it worked, and it was fun. We had a lot of kids who took part in the competition and were engaged. I’m very happy that the channel’s ratings improved. The application helped us because kids play online and watch TV at the same time. Our main goal was that our TV ratings grow, and they did.

How did Hype4 perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very flexible and they react very quickly. They’re even available during after hours. We used email, phone calls, and Skype calls.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re very innovative. They can create solutions from a creative point of view, but also using new technology. Everything is up to date.

They worked in alignment with the technology we have because it’s a corporation. We’re not so flexible. Sometimes we can’t implement the new technologies because our websites aren’t so up to date. They are able to work around that and I appreciate that.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They’re very flexible and they approach every project individually. They can work with the different projects differently, which is an advantage.
