Feedback summary: 

The engaging site boasts a 10% higher click-through rate compared to earlier versions, and Lepshey’s attractive branding elements have contributed substantially to improved recognition. Lepshey’s rapid turnaround time and receptivity to guidance continue to strengthen the partnership.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of ID Finance, an online vendor focusing on consumer finance. We operate in 7 different countries. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Lepshey?

We use them for design work. They’ve designed our website 4 or 5 times. They helped with our mobile application design as well as numerous other projects that we have done internally. We didn’t have anything before Lepshey. They’ve been our main provider.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They helped us optimize our funnel and did all the design work from scratch. We gave them a brief that they completed. Sometimes, I would draw the mockup by hand on a piece of paper and mail it to them. They would make my sketch into an HTML design template. In addition to web design, they also assisted with presentations, business cards, and templates for documents. But, 70%–80% of the work they’ve done involved web design.

I don’t know which technologies they used. They’ve been doing the work for our portfolio company from Georgia, as well as for our Spanish and Brazilian subsidiaries. Overall, they’ve handled quite a lot of work.

How many resources have been assigned to your project?

I worked with Michael [Founder and CEO, Lepshey] and his lead designer, Alex.

How did you come to work with Lepshey?

We looked at a few companies, and Lepshey was the most reasonable in terms of price. It was easier to explain what we wanted, and they understand our goals. They’re quite business-friendly and easy to deal with.

How much have you invested with Lepshey?

We have spent $200,000 in the past 4 years.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in May of 2012, and the work is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We gained a lot of recognition from the MoneyMan brand that they helped us build. We definitely enjoyed a lot of above-the-line help from that. When we did the redesign, we had a 10% CTR [click-through rate] increase. We’ve been A/B testing the main page for a while.  

How did Lepshey perform from a project management standpoint?

I communicated with Alex on a monthly basis. They are better designers than they are project managers. They’re happy to take a lot of guidance in their work. The team was very responsive, and the turnaround is rapid. They understand things quickly as well. If something is urgent, they can tackle it on the same day. We used email to communicate.

What did you find most impressive about Lepshey?

They understand the domain now quite well. They’ve been with us for a long time, so working with them is easy. They really know what we need. There’s no bureaucratic processes; everything is simple and seamless. I can draw something on a piece of paper or just take a photo with my phone and send it to them, and they’ll have the design ready in a day.

Are there any areas Lepshey could improve?

I don’t think their people speak English that well, which complicates their ability to get business outside of the Russian-speaking world. When we’re dealing with business in Spain or Brazil, it’s more difficult for them to manage the relationships with our portfolio.

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

They’re a great team. We use them ourselves, and we can only lead by example.

Feedback summary: 

With Lepshey, everything just works: The team meets budget and timelines, and they have a clear eye for design. They deliver strong work even under pressure. An efficient, well-organized team, they arrived at a simple collaboration process.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am a cofounder of HES, a fintech product development company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Lepshey?

We needed assistance with UI/UX design. We don’t have in-house resources because we find designers to be special creatures, and we consider ourselves to be a development company. We were looking for a reliable partner for this facet.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We have sent Lepshey a few projects, starting with the design and development of our corporate website. They provided complete graphic design from scratch, and created our logo. They also created much of our printed collateral like company profiles, leaflets, business cards, templates, and so on. Lepshey also handled HTML and JavaScript slicing. They worked on landing page design, including banners.

We have also involved Lepshey in client projects. We specialize in fintech development, around which they designed user interfaces for the landing applications. There are many complex details, including numbers, graphics and other elements which need to work together. Lepshey helped us define the logical interactions and paths through complex screens, ensuring that the information was well-presented and readable. They made some clever designs that simplified our users’ experience.

We haven’t used Lepshey for marketing, but they have designed the marketing materials we distribute through different channels.

We worked with two or three resources from Lepshey, including their founder. I wasn’t involved with all our projects, but I believe that we used a main designer and another one.

How did you come to work with Lepshey?

Someone in our network recommended them.

How much have you invested with Lepshey?

The cost of Lepshey’s work has been between $10,000 and $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Lepshey in June 2013. We continue to work with them on a couple of large projects. We’re happy with Lepshey overall.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have appreciated Lepshey’s ability to work under pressure, with tight deadlines. They provide quick turnarounds, which helps us achieve our goals. For example, the first version of the landing page for our company was published within two weeks of starting the project.

How did Lepshey perform from a project management standpoint?

They are a small but well-organized company. We’ve always had an assigned project manager from Lepshey’s team, to whom we could present all our needs, and who acted as a single point of contact. If necessary, we can work directly with the designers to provide some feedback and explain our requirements. Lepshey uses tools like InVision for presenting results, which provides sufficient online collaboration. If needed, they will also come to us. We’re quite happy with how project management procedures are organized.

What did you find most impressive about Lepshey?

We’ve tried different designers over time. Not all our projects were successful, but we found that we share a similar understanding of design concepts with Lepshey. We like what they do and never required multiple iterations in order to make designs final. Also, they never failed to meet a deadline, and always did what was promised.

Are there any areas Lepshey could improve?

They need to grow as a company and attract more customers like us. The question is whether Lepshey will be able to maintain its well-organized structure when the team will be three or four times bigger than what it currently is. I can’t think of particular areas for improvement. We’re quite happy with the results we have.

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

My advice is for customers to give Lepshey a chance. They are a very reliable provider for us, compared to the other five companies we’ve tried. I believe that potential customers won’t be disappointed.

Feedback summary: 

Through Lepshey’s involvement, the website now boasts a UX that connects and communicates with clients effectively. The team provides suggestions and digs deeper to offer better solutions, constantly seeking to improve the product. Creating a thorough project scope, in the beginning, is recommended.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the head of products for RecruitLoop.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Lepshey?

We needed help in developing our marketing website. We had tried several designers but were not satisfied with their quality. Lepshey demonstrated to have great design skills and an understanding of what clients need.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Lepshey was in charge of the design and coding phases. There were two developers working exclusively on this project. The website development was split into phases, with updates between each one. We used Photoshop and Illustrator for the design, as well as some tools for the HTML and JavaScript coding. We received the code once it was ready to integrate into the website.

The work was template-driven. We have a responsive website and so we focused on it scaling well between desktop and mobile devices. Lepshey also created some JavaScript animations.

We developed the search engine optimization content and wireframing ourselves, while Lepshey was in charge of the design, prototyping, and delivery.

How did you come to work with Lepshey?

A friend of mine recommended Lepshey. We had gone through three or so developers before them, but we got the feeling that they didn’t understand our needs. Lepshey was able to deliver more than we expected.

How much have you invested with Lepshey?

The cost of Lepshey’s work has been close to $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Lepshey in April or May 2012. There was a six-month period of intense work, followed by maintenance and small feature builds. We have stayed in touch with Lepshey, and they continue to help us. We finished our latest big project around December 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We were very satisfied with the results. Lepshey has allowed us to become comfortable with our public facing website. They were able to convey our ideas in terms of what we offer clients, which was critical for us. We have important meetings and pitches and need to be up to date. User experience is also important to us since it contributes to a positive impression. Lepshey’s work has presented us as a solid company which follows best practices. This makes a big impact on how the industry and clients perceive us.

How did Lepshey perform from a project management standpoint?

We’ve stayed with Lepshey for so long because they really understand what we’re after—they ask the right questions and think much better than other partners we’ve had. They can come up with solutions and ideas, and help us dig deeper into what we’re trying to implement.

What did you find most impressive about Lepshey?

They deliver well-done outputs. Our interactions are very productive; Lepshey has helped us improve the product and have a satisfying outcome.

Are there any areas Lepshey could improve?

I didn’t identify anything negative. We’ve had a good experience and have continued to go back to Lepshey.

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

From my experience, in order to get the best out of the team, it’s better to scope the project beyond abstract requirements. It’s important to make some wireframes and come up with a content structure. The more thoughtful the input is, the better Lepshey will be able to help. It’s not a magic box where we can place anything and get a good result.
