Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?
The new website has injected a new look and feel into our business. Business and partner associates have been diving glowing feedback. Our expectation for the website was exceeded. We asked our friend who referred us to cross-check the development and found that the website was built lean and clean with best practice. Our website gets a score of 87/100 (mobile) and 94/100 (desktop) on Google speed test.
How was project management arranged and how effective was it?
Project management was agile. We made minor changes in the form of sprints during the design and development phases once the framework for the website was produced. InVision was used to communicate the design, Skype for regular online meetings, Slack to reduce email communication and efficient replies. There were no issues with language. The team spoke with perfect English.
What did you find most impressive about this company?
We had direct access to the Head of Development which enabled effective communication. One impressive factor working with LibraFire is that their internal company culture matched ours. Funny, witty, transparent, easy-going and great to converse with. But when it came to 'getting down to business' they delivered accurately and timely. They take pride in their work.
Are there any areas for improvement?
There is very little to improve on, they deliver high-quality work, lean and clean code and beautiful design. The only thing I can suggest is that they use a system like Trello so that we can track the current work in progress visually. But this should generally be enforced by the client-side and must request that LibraFire use the system provided (which we did not use as the project was not very complex and did not have too many moving parts)
