Feedback summary: 

Through IT Chimes’ organized development processes, deliverables ranked well and continue to meet business objectives. The team’s accessibility, reasonable price point, proactive scheduling, and growing capabilities drive tangible results.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the business developer of a company specializing in a diverse range of e-commerce products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with IT Chimes?

We wanted to create a better web presence and optimize the different brands that we're working on.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’re pretty diverse as far as what they do. We're using them for development, different design structures like logos, and marketing services.

One of the marketing projects that we had, prior to this point, was around 160 working hours monthly (40 hours a week full-time). We work with a team of 3, there are 2 overseers and a full-time developer. That seems to be how they set things up.

They're doing a lot of Magento, which they’re definitely familiar with, but they’re also capable of handling custom PHP and traditional setups. We've done a little bit of PHP with them, but I would assume they have even deeper skills.

How did you come to work with IT Chimes?

We found them via online searches. We pooled the different people that ranked well and communicated with each of them until we narrowed down our choice.

What is the status of this engagement?

I think the earliest we started working with them was in September 2016. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

Overall, we’re pleased with them. They definitely have great staff members, and their structure is organized. We rarely stumble on any big headaches.

How did IT Chimes perform from a project management standpoint?

Primarily, we use common resources for communication (Skype and WhatsApp) to stay in touch with them, but I know that we'll be touching base in real-time. We do have a trip planned to meet with them, but I don't know when.

What did you find most impressive about IT Chimes?

They’re young and hungry for growth and have the right organizational structure in place to make that practical for them. They know how to complement the client’s business.

Are there any areas IT Chimes could improve?

They're usually slightly ahead of schedule. Maybe once in a while—and this is nitpicking, honestly—I expect a response that’s a little delayed, but they're never late. We have no complaints on our end.

Feedback summary: 

For the latest weight loss supplement line, social media advertising yielded significant results in terms of online exposure and engagement. Sales and site visits also rose substantially, thanks to IT Chimes’ insightful suggestions, proactive communication, and targeted approach. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the owner of a small health supplement business in Phoenix, Arizona.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with IT Chimes?

We hired IT Chimes for their marketing expertise. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We were thinking about SEO and paid search (e.g. pay-per-click [PPC]). I wasn’t sure how to choose the best means of advertising. I wanted to start with a smaller, easier website first, and I didn’t know if PPC, social media, or a combination was the best way to get started. I was looking for an agency that could cover both sides and grow their involvement as that particular business line grew. IT Chimes also manages our social media marketing [SMM].

How did you come to work with IT Chimes?

I did a Google search for the top marketing businesses. I realized that advertising is truly big data, and I wanted to turn it over to someone who was more skilled at analyzing micro clicks at different times of the day. I interviewed probably 4 or 5 of the biggies. IT Chimes seemed smaller, but I liked them the best.

How much have you invested with IT Chimes?

I’m going to have to go back and do some calculations. I’ve increased my ad budget as the site improved. Budgets certainly vary, but I think the least you’d be able to spend for PPC, such as Google AdWords, would be $35 a day. Of course, you can do $1 million a day, if that’s the size of the business you run.

What is the status of this engagement?

I think we’ve been working on marketing for about 5–6 months. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

In all honesty, for this particular line of products, advertising on social media yields far better results for the weight loss line than PPC. I’d have to look up the actual metrics, but sales and visits to the site are certainly up. Likes are also increasing. We started small with social media, and it took on a life of its own. IT Chimes’ contribution to our likes certainly has been to my benefit.

How did IT Chimes perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve had a lot of phone calls with IT Chimes. I did not realize initially that they were in India with a 13.5-hour time difference. They made our phone calls convenient for me and my time zone, which would have been in the middle of the night for them. It’s fairly easy to communicate because of my own schedule. I'm someone who simply doesn’t sleep. If the day ends in a “y,” it’s a workday. I’m awake at 3 a.m., which would be 4 p.m. for them. Generally, when I send an email, they responded quickly. If I send a message at 3 a.m., I know that at 3 p.m., they’re probably up.

In terms of social media, they send a list at the end of the month of every upcoming post to my Facebook pages, so I know ahead of time what to expect and what each of those posts will be. At that point in time, I can provide input if I want to make changes.

What did you find most impressive about IT Chimes?

IT Chimes is a great group that’s eager to make sure I achieve my goals. They’re eager to make changes, eager to please, and attentive, but they’re still willing to listen to my input.

Are there any areas IT Chimes could improve?

Nothing comes to mind at this point.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with IT Chimes?

Be involved with your agency. Don't turn something over 100%. Even though IT Chimes is doing all of my marketing, don't allow any business to manage every aspect by themselves. Understand the process so that you can participate. If you want to use social media, learn how they advertise so you can have an intelligent conversation and know how to track improvement. Don’t adopt the ostrich technique of “I guess it’s working.”

Feedback summary: 

Through IT Chimes’ attention to detail, the website has achieved the desired level of simplicity and clarity in showcasing uploaded content. The team’s reliable scheduling, proactive problem-solving, and quick incorporation of feedback highlight their eagerness to achieve.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the CEO of Helios Energy Group. We're an acquirer of renewable and clean energy assets in the US, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Canada. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with IT Chimes?

Helios was formed in 2008, and we started looking at developing the business in 2011. Ultimately, we decided to put that on hold until 2016.

We’re a startup, so our goal was to get a website as quickly and economically as we could to give our prospective clients and partners insight into our services, distinctiveness, and expertise.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

IT Chimes handled development of the website, as well as the design, layering, and tech stack. They also finalized the graphics. For the setup of the site, they gave us 4 different outlines to decide between. We customized each of those a little and started loading some content. That has really taken our time.

The work is an iterative process. At first, we started with the overall design and layout. As we write the text, we often need to tweak a few things. Also, as they load the text, we get to see different parts of it come together. They played with different layouts and fonts to make everything cohesive.

The website is relatively simple and informational. At some point, it’ll be a little more interactive, and we’ll include an investor section and login area, as well as a newsletter.

How did you come to work with IT Chimes?

They were referred to me by a colleague who was developing an e-commerce website, which was a lot more complicated in terms of B2B and B2C technologies.

Based on our earlier research, we started talking with various providers. We knew our pricing and content goals. For small companies like us that are trying to save costs, providers can be pretty spotty in terms of service, but IT Chimes offers good customer service, is willing to work with us, and is very economical.

How much have you invested with IT Chimes?

We’ve spent about $3,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The timeline has been approximately 3 months. Most of the delays have been on our side since we’re responsible for the content. We plan to continue to use them alongside our other vendors. Antares in Massachusetts does all of our IT work (including email), and Intermedia handles our hosting and will also host the website.

This website is certainly going to evolve over time as we continue to acquire projects and update information. Also, in terms of the organic evolution of the website, we’re going to keep growing our investor relations. Having the consistency of steady vendors is important to me. I like to keep the same level of quality by using a single shop and having them data dump on the hosting entity. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

The website is still in progress, but we've loaded 99% of the tech stuff, including some of the project summaries that I sent them earlier today. In terms of glitches, the only issues are on the coding side. The website works pretty well on my PC but not on my iPhone. We just need to keep playing with the coding to make sure that everything flows.

We're a case study in simplicity; our website is informational as opposed to interactive. For what we hired them to do, IT Chimes did a terrific job. We’re pretty satisfied.

How did IT Chimes perform from a project management standpoint?

Their team is organized well, and different people come in at different times. They had the client service people in the beginning, defining the scope of the project. They handed us over to people who did the layout and put together the coding. They haven’t exited yet. Then, we meet the guys who are loading the content, making sure it flows well.

IT Chimes sends everything to us through a secure portal so we can view it, play around with it, and make changes as needed. We're continually tweaking the layout to make the content flow better, so we have an interactive approach between our groups. Finally, we’ll move into QC soon. Once that’s finished, the site will have gone through the paces of a bunch of different platforms, which should remove all the glitches.

Are there any areas IT Chimes could improve?

No, we're pretty satisfied with them overall. Sometimes, the language barrier can be difficult, but we've communicated mostly via email.

The first layout they gave us had a section for comments, which didn't work well. It was clumsy but nothing earth-shattering. That wasn’t their fault; it was more due to the system that they were using. I sent them an email with a bunch of notes, and they made the changes that we needed.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with IT Chimes?

If you're on a tight deadline, have your content ready to go. We weren't in an incredible rush, so we could take our time, play around with their designs, and see what worked.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the managing member of a SEO agency in Arizona.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with IT Chimes?

I often have a lot of work that’s really time-consuming, so I was looking for a business that could help me offload some of those projects.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

By using IT Chimes, I’ve been able to offload some of my more time-consuming work, which allows me to market my business and bring in more customers and ultimately more revenue. Most of the work I’ve had them do has been related to SEO and web and process development.

How did you come to work with IT Chimes?

I have high-level training and I wanted my work done in a specific way, so I wanted to find a business that was open to being trained. I also wanted a personal connection with the business I selected, because I wanted them to take pride in their work and ownership of the details.

How much have you invested with IT Chimes?

I can't speak to the cost range, but IT Chimes works, on average, between 30 and 60 hours a week.

What is the status of this engagement?

I’ve been working with IT Chimes for about six months, and our work is ongoing. Everything is transitioning well, and I’m finding I'm able to offload more and more work onto them, and I’m comfortable that it will be completed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

We’ve had an increase in traffic to my client sites since I’ve started working with IT Chimes. I think the highest traffic increase is probably 30 percent, which obviously makes my clients happy, because they have people that then come in and purchase their product.

How did IT Chimes perform from a project management standpoint?

I’m satisfied with IT Chime's project management. They communicate well and do a good job at reporting and keeping me abreast of new developments. I have one point of contact who makes sure everything gets completed properly, which makes collaboration so much easier; I don't have to juggle different people with different projects.

What did you find most impressive about IT Chimes?

I’m really pleased with IT Chimes. They’re knowledgeable and technically sound, and they’re willing to consider new ways of accomplishing things.

Are there any areas IT Chimes could improve?

Everybody can always improve, but off the top of my head, I can't really think of anything that IT Chimes could do differently.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with IT Chimes?

Establishing trust with IT Chimes took some time in the beginning. I was more comfortable with them once I saw that they were doing the work the way I wanted them to do it. Communication is important. Like with any business, you have to tell them how you want things, and everything improves as that process is honed in.

Many companies provide similar work to IT Chimes, especially in India. However, I haven't found the same level of quality and commitment that IT Chimes provides.

IT Chimes is an honest and ethical team with great pricing. They made some mistakes with testing that delayed the project but are still highly recommended.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our company was founded 3-4 years ago in Dubai, in order to tackle the very high youth unemployment rate in the region. We're a job portal connecting university students and recent graduates with different employment opportunities in the region. When it comes to users, we have 2 very broad sets: candidates and employers. 

I am the product manager of the company, handling everything related to technology.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with IT Chimes?

When our company was started 3-4 years ago, we were looking for a technology partner that could come in and walk us through best practices for developing our platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

IT Chimes has been our technology partner, helping us build the platform from the ground up. Whenever it comes to any questions about moving forward or making upgrades, IT Chimes acts like our consultant.

We were creating our platform from scratch and had a general idea of what needed to be done, but when it came to specifics and alternatives, IT Chimes acted as a consultant/chief advisor for our company, suggesting the best technology practices for us to move forward. We were given use cases against which to measure what we were looking to do.

IT Chimes helped us with the design and development for the first iteration of our site. We handled its design ourselves for the relaunch in 2015, but IT Chimes handled everything from development to testing.

How did you come to work with IT Chimes?

Our co-founders had a very good idea of what we wanted to achieve as well as a budget in mind for what we were looking to do. Based on these factors, IT Chimes was chosen as the best solution.

IT Chimes delivers clean code for a competitive price. They also have a strong project management software geared toward non-technical clients.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the owner and one of the partners of Scarlett Ryan Consulting. We are a boutique marketing agency located in central New Jersey that specializes in small to medium sized companies. I am also the online project manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with IT Chimes?

We do a lot of the content and creative side, and we wanted someone to do the backend development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We reached out to IT Chimes to be the development arm of our website business and they did our first website. When I began to talk to their staff, I realized they had a lot more to offer. We’ve started to use them for SEO and they pretty much write the proposals for me, which is amazing. I just need to edit it, print it, and hand it to the client. They have done some design work when I didn’t have time to give them any visuals. They came back with some great artwork.

How did you come to work with IT Chimes?

IT Chimes contacted us and I decided to hire them for 1 project. I liked what they did with the first project so we started giving them more work. As we got to know the team, they wanted critical feedback because they want to get better at how they serve their clients.

How much have you invested with IT Chimes?

The average project they’ve completed has been around $1,000 to $1,500.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started the project 6 months ago, and our relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

IT Chimes programs very cleanly. I have worked with other companies where the developers leave a lot of space junk in a WordPress website. If they don’t understand something, they’ll get clarification instead of guessing what I want. I have customers that are extremely happy because the product was exactly what they wanted. If I find an issue after we’ve paid for and taken possession of the work, IT Chimes they will take care of it. Also, the IT Chimes team is great at customer service.

How did IT Chimes perform from a project management standpoint?

They have dedicated teams to the graphic design, backend coding, and Internet marketing, so you know who to contact with questions. They are on Skype and we can see who the person is and make sure that everyone understands what we’re asking for.

What did you find most impressive about IT Chimes?

My account manager at the top of his Skype profile says “Mistakes are an opportunity for us to serve our client better.” That attitude has made me a devotee of IT Chimes.

Are there any areas IT Chimes could improve?

They need to make their conduit software for project management easier to understand, especially for non-technical clients.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with IT Chimes?

You need to have a lot of conversations up front to understand how they are set up. Then, you can utilize IT Chimes to a much better capacity if you have that understanding from day 1.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The application was a major success, and the IT Chimes team is responsive and helpful with app marketing. They are fairly priced and much better than previously used offshore firms.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We have developed an event photo and video sharing app. I am the founder and chief executive officer of the business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with IT Chimes?

We needed assistance in scoping the architectural layout of our application and taking it forward into material UI/UX [user interface/user experience] designs, make a proof of concept, and ultimately develop and launch the product.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

IT Chimes has been our development partner for the app. Their involvement has started from day one by putting ideas on paper and specking out what the potential of the application could be, what architecture needed to sit behind it, and what functionalities could be integrated into it, given the available features of iOS at the time. We proceeded to a full development phase from there.

IT Chimes has assisted with arranging certain business introductions and helped promote awareness, but we've not officially engaged them in any marketing activities.

How did you come to work with IT Chimes?

I was introduced to IT Chimes during a visit to New Delhi. I wanted to have a look at their team size and managers, as well as IT Chimes' previous work, in order to gauge how they could work with international clients. I found that certain Indian developers had substandard capabilities on the UI/UX front, so I was careful to make sure that IT Chimes could meet my standards. Cost was also a factor.

How much have you invested with IT Chimes?

The cost of our project with IT Chimes was slightly less than $25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The main chunk of the work has been completed. Our app is fully developed and launched, but there is an ongoing scope for minor updates as we adjust for new iOS and Android OS releases.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

IT Chimes has developed a good product that we were able to launch. The app received decent reviews. Many people would be taken aback if told that the app was made by an Indian developer. It's on par with Western standards, so it's great that we've been able to finish the app for its price.

I don't think that metrics and rating are purely a function of an app's quality. Much more goes into this, like the marketing budget, exposure, and what someone does with a product once it's been delivered. That said, we've been able to surpass 10,000 downloads organically, without any marketing. We have a rating of 4.7 on the Play Store and also have close to a 5-star rating on Apple's App Store. Reviews are positive as well.

How did IT Chimes perform from a project management standpoint?

IT Chimes is a good team. They're diligent in making sure that clients are looked after, and IT Chimes maintains operations outside of India, including in the United States. We can always reach out to them, especially to IT Chimes' 2 founders, who are available to any queries that need to go to that level.

What did you find most impressive about IT Chimes?

Overall, I've been satisfied with IT Chimes. They have good communication and responsiveness, and I wouldn't have been able to get the same level of value from a United Kingdom-based company.

Are there any areas IT Chimes could improve?

There is a difference between Western and Eastern cultures in terms of design, but people have still been impressed with our product.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with IT Chimes?

I advise clients to spec things out fully, from the start, be clear in terms of what they need delivered and spend time mapping that goal from day one. IT Chimes will give their time and answer any questions.
