Aspira Kenya Fundiz Shop Tatu City

Fundiz Shop Image

Fundiz Shop

We were approached to design an ecommerce platform that would provide an intuitive online shopping experience for furniture products at affordable prices. 

 

We came up with a Design and Development Plan that analyzed current ecommerce sites and what they lack to deliver to their target customers and how we could bridge that challenge in the Kenyan ecosystem. 

 

Coupled with this, we recommended and

implemented a SEO Plan that saw the website ranking high on search engines from the day it was launched

Family Media Tv

Family TV was seeking a way to leverage their content in a way that could be accessible to their mobile audience. 

 

Madavi took a holistic approach to the project and led the Client through the A-to-Z process of product design, development, and post-release support. 

 

The key challenges were:

 

- translating the vague project idea into the ready-to-implement scope of work,

-

designing the complex product that will meet users and business goals,
MMS Advocates Image

MMS Advocates

MMS Advocates needed to reach out to the masses and educate them on law that affects them in their day to day activities. This was to be done using channels that are easy to access and interact with. 

 

We came up with a plan to curate information and designed how it could be accessed by anyone with a digital device with an internet connection from anywhere. This entailed developing a user-centric website fully

integrated with social media accounts where users could access snippets of the said info. 

 

We also streamlined the user journey in a manner that their queries could get instantly replied seconds within landing on the website. 

 

Tatu City Workflow Activity System Image

Tatu City Workflow Activity System

The road construction process is a rigorous set of activities that needs constant communication between collaborating teams. Work delegation and approval was done manually by sending relevant documents between individuals which increased the construction period. 

 

We designed a prototype that entailed all activities done at  a road construction site and iterated on it with the Engineers to 

make it better. Their interactions were facilitated through a mobile and web application.
Chapawera - Freelancers Marketplace Image

Chapawera - Freelancers Marketplace

We were tasked with designing a platform where freelancers can bid for creative work and get paid without the bottlenecks of current complex payment systems. We did this by coming up with a simple interface and integrated Mpesa as the payment gateway due to its ease of use popularity among the youth. We also integrated machine learning to aid the system to accept and allocate bids in a smart way when the user base exponentially

grows.
Ifunza School Platform Image

Ifunza School Platform

Madavi was approached to define the above problem rampant in the Kenyan educational ecosystem and how to come up with a solution for it.

Our client, a parent with a child in school, needed help with working towards Proof of Concept and a Minimum Viable Product (M.V.P).

The Madavi team was able to design, structure and develop a product that answers the problem statement by coming up with a product that enhances

teacher-parent communication through a web and mobile app. 
Optimizing User Interface to shape consumers purchasing rate Image

Optimizing User Interface to shape consumers purchasing rate

We were contracted by Aspira Kenya to improve their Search Rankings on the web and advise on how they

can use their website to make additional sales to the ones made in their partner stores.

We designed a SEO Plan that would not only improve rankings, but also A/B Testing to improve User

Experience once they landed on the website.

We also integrated the offers on the website with SalesCloud to

streamline the customer journey and

increase the number of purchasing customers.

Also, the website was optimized for mobile layout and loading speed.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Flux design Ltd is an engineering design consultancy based in Nairobi Kenya. I am the managing director.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Madavi Agency?

We are a startup and our company was looking for an affordable but quality IT and web creation solutions provider.

Our first goal was securing a domain name and setting up emails for official communications. We are currently in the design stages of the website.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to secure an affordable domain without having to lose our company names. Madavi was able to filter through the various options and proposed Flux-design.co.

We are very happy with the savings, which we channeled to stage 2- the website design. Together with Madavi we are working on an interactive web site that showcases our VR and AR projects.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were referred to MADAVI by a mutual friend who had worked with them previously. We were satisfied with the work samples provided by MADAVI, and their references spoke well of them.

Describe the project in detail.

We had a sit down with Victor (director) and my team and gave him a brief on our need to acquire a domai name and hosting services.

MADAVI sent a proposal with a list of possible domain names and web hosts, that would fulfill our security and costs needs. After further discussions we settled on using namechip for securing on domain name and hosting.

What was the team composition?

Both directors from our company and Victor (MADAVI director).

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have effective mail communication. Having dedicated work emails relieves one of the clutter of mixing personal and work emails.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

From our interaction with Victor, we are impressed by their dedication to quality and detail. We have never suffered a downtime of more than 10min. Their response to issues is commendable. We also receive bi weekly feedback calls from MADAVI

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed at their competence, their top-notch customer care, their proactiveness, and their interactiveness.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Perhaps having a larger workforce. It would be great to have a team of 3 to 4 working on our website. Judging from what they are able to deliver when only 2 are working I believe they can deliver the same quality with half the time.

Feedback summary: 

The service from Madavi Agency has exceeded expectations. The software, though not live, is high quality. Their ability to manage the work internally and present their progress for feedback makes them an easy-to-work-with partner. Their quick turnaround time stands out for the client. 

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 IT lead of a construction site management product.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Madavi Agency?

We hired Madavi Agency to help develop a mobile app and web platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Madavi Agency developed the Android mobile application and part of the web platform. Both of these products are intended to handle the construction process, starting with a client contracting an engineer and ending with delivering the final product. 

We explained how this process works and the various levels of contractors, inspectors, and other key components so they understood the goal of the product. From there, they developed the software from scratch. We’re now in the testing phase and they incorporate changes based on our feedback. 

What is the team composition?

I’ve worked with three people from their team. 

How did you come to work with Madavi Agency?

After seeing some of their work elsewhere, I thought it’d be a good idea for them to help with our project. 

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $5,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in July 2019 and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

So far, everything is good with the platforms. We appreciate the work they’ve done and we’re nearly finished and ready to go live. 

How did Madavi Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve done quite well with project management. The turnaround time works for us. They use a tool to log the project’s status, but we don’t use it on our end. They deliver everything by a certain date. When giving us the final product, they do a presentation during our meeting and receive feedback. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re quite skilled in producing ideas and managing their time. The turnaround time they offer is perfect for our needs.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We really appreciate the work they’ve done, so there’s nothing they could improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Dedicate your time to the project and give feedback as fast as possible. They want to work and need your feedback to meet those timelines.
