Could you describe the actual scope of work assigned to them?
We took a very collaborative approach where we’d give them wireframes, and they would develop them, but in a very collaborative way. They would give us feedback, they would sometimes suggest alternatives, and they would come up with smart ways and smart solutions for things. But, they are not designers, so they didn’t do the design. We came to them with the graphic contents and they implemented them.
What was your process for selecting Made Tech with which to work?
We wanted to go with Spree Commerce, but there were only two agencies in London specializing in that platform, so it was that expertise that brought them to our attention.
What was the rationale in selecting Spree Commerce?
I think it was first a negative experience with Magento, and then developing an understanding of what the more modern sites are doing. That was the starting point, and the more we looked into Spree Commerce, the more we liked having a lean codebase for the long term.
Can you provide a ballpark dollar figure for the size of the work that they’ve done for you?
We’ve spent somewhere between $100,000 and $200,000 working with Made Tech.
Is this an ongoing project or have you finished your work with Made Tech?
The project is ongoing. We’re still working with them to develop new features on the website.
