Feedback summary: 

Markupus’ efforts and digital support improves performance and lays the foundation for a more productive internal workflow. They leverage their extensive design knowledge and excellent project management approach to deliver high-quality products. Their skills have led to a lasting partnership.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder of The Odd Visual Stuff. Our company brings a unique and multidisciplinary approach to digital design.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Markupus?

We needed assistance with some frontend development.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted pixel-perfect websites that reflected my designs.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Markupus approached me and offered their services. Luckily, I was looking for a new partner to help with various online projects.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

Markupus worked with us on two WordPress websites, one was our company homepage and the other was for a third party. We provided the designs and the Markupus team created a budget estimate, timeline, and development strategy for each.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a project manager and one developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Markupus helps improve our performance and reduces our internal workload. I can depend on Markupus’ work, so I don’t have to worry about the technical execution of our projects.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Their team’s approach to project management is excellent. Because I am based in the Netherlands, most of our communication is via Slack channels. Markupus is very responsive and quickly clears up any questions or miscommunications.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Aside from their great development skills, I was impressed with their level of design knowledge. This made our process and collaborations run very smoothly. I plan to continue our partnership going forward.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

I am not as confident in their knowledge in foreign code languages, but I’m confident we can work this out together.

Feedback summary: 

Markupus reduces workload allowing increased time and focus on UX and development strategies. While their coding could be more intuitive, their speed, specialized project management platform, and communication skills contribute to a smooth engagement. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Our company builds custom platforms and I manage the designs

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Markupus?

We hired Markupus to build code snippets for various widgets in our platforms.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed mobile-ready, hand-coded snippets that would work within the tight constraints of our platform.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They're one of the only vendors that responded to our request for evidence (RFE) with a thoughtful and well-worded reply.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

They are building multiple widgets a week based on our detailed requirements.

What was the team composition?

Markupus supplies one project manager who expertly manages any and all developers assigned to our project. The developers do change occasionally, but they do all of the onboarding/training on their own.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We are able to focus on design instead of development. They allow us to work more closely with clients and focus our time on strategy and UX.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They provide a project manager and we communicate via a special website that we set up. It works very well and we also use Zeplin for project collaboration.They don't have as many opportunities to talk directly due to time zone. Our developers are sometimes was busier with other projects, but overall, they still work quickly.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their speed and communication skills impress us. 

Are there any areas where they can improve?

They do a great job coding interactions when clearly defined, but when we ask them to build hovers and interactions of their choice, they sometimes struggle to find appropriate, intuitive interactions. Sometimes, we don't have the time to specify every interaction, so having this built intuitively during the development would be very helpful.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the e-commerce development director of Alo Yoga, a company relentless about making the best yoga clothing in the world to inspire yogis (and yogis to be) to have more yoga in their life. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Markupus?

We hired Markupus for multiple frontend web development projects.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed to rebuild our current website twice in a short amount of time and currently want to build another website for our second brand. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found Markupus through a freelance marketplace website. We tested four other candidates and Markupus, and they showed the best and fastest results.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

They first helped migrate our old site from Magento 1 to Magento 2, and then to Shopify. They also worked on advanced frontend development for our the site and are currently doing the same for our newest website. 

What was the team composition?

Markupus' team consists of three front-end developers and fantastic project managers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Our migrations were developed and launched early than expected. The updated UX/UI and migrations increased sales, conversions, the time spent on site, and decreased bounce and error rates. Our content managers, data analysts, and other employees spend 3-5 hours less each week to get work done due to the easy-to-use interfaces. 

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Markupus' project management is one of their strongest qualities. They provide great project managers that are always very friendly and keep their promises. They worked on each project somewhere between two months to four months while other well-known companies estimated 6–8 months.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They always deliver perfect results faster than expected. 

Are there any areas where they can improve?

This company is simply perfect. I'd work with them even if they charged double their current rate.

Feedback summary: 

The Markupus team provides high-quality development work with an emphasis on client preferences. Their diligent work ethic, reasonable cost structure, and overall attention to detail are key to the partnership’s success.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the product lead for an Australian startup in the online fundraising space.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire MarkUpUs?

We used Markupus for design, development and project management of small-to-medium size consumer web applications.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed a partner who could consistently deliver end-to-end builds with minimal supervision. The company needed to be able to operate independently in the background, and this is hard to find in the offshore freelancer/agency space.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found a number of firms online, shortlisted them based on the applications they had delivered, and shortlisted again after a live video interview.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

We have created a workflow for projects that need development services. We provide technical specifications and process drawings/wireframes, which Markupus analyses. We also do a video call to resolve any questions or uncertainties. They complete the design over the next week, which we review with the client and go through any final adjustments needed. Markupus then provides an estimate on the development work based on our client’s timeline and budget. After getting approval, they move on to development work, followed by internal testing. We oversee user acceptance testing and content entry, and Markupus manages the site’s eventual launch.

What was the team composition?

We primarily work with a project lead, who then communicates with the rest of the team. We also work with a UI designer, an HTML/CSS developer, and a WordPress developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

It’s very easy to work with Markupus. Thanks to turn-key operation, we now get reliable, high-quality results within set budgets and timeframes whenever we need them.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Markupus has a dedicated project manager who’s been excellent. We’ve appreciated their attention to detail and their can-do approach. We originally did email and video before bringing them onto our Slack channels. Communication has been seamless throughout the project.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They provide high-quality work on time and on budget. Their staff are great to work with. They're also fun to interact with, which can be rare when working with offshore companies.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

We're doing small-to-medium applications, and they do a great job at reasonable rates. Nothing to improve; this is clearly their niche.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the CEO of UX.energy, which is a design agency that creates interfaces and UI/UX elements.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Markupus?

We outsource frontend development to Markupus after creating the designs ourselves.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed to find a reliable partner that could complete high-quality work on time during a long-term cooperation. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I really liked Markupus' website. They offered HTML/CSS/JS development for not only PSD files but also Sketch and Illustrator. Also, I needed a team with a project manager who I could contact instead of working directly with developers.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

They convert PSD, Sketch, XD, and Illustrator designs into HTML, CSS, and JS. They also conduct code testing in different browsers and on various devices.

What was the team composition?

Markupus assigned a project manager, sales representative, and frontend developers. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Thanks to Markupus, we've started to offer both frontend development and design services to our clients.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They manage the work well. We communicate with Artem (Project Manager, Markupus). He coordinates tasks with the development team, provides time estimates, and sends over the results. Artem also shares daily reports about the stages of implementation.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team responds to my requests promptly. They’re frontend experts and understand how to implement our design in the best way.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

They could offer backend development (e.g., PHP, Node.js, Angular).

Feedback summary: 

Thanks to Markupus’ swift alignment with the product vision, the MVP finished 3 weeks early, allowing a more strategic launch. The team’s insightful suggestions, impeccable deliverables, and positive attitude inspire confidence and trust.

BACKGROUND

I’m the product manager for a training platform for individuals looking to start an e-commerce business. My role involves keeping projects on track, ensuring the platform is working seamlessly, and offering a great UX [user experience]. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

As with any new development initiative, it’s vital to start with a strong team that’s reliable and delivers consistently. We wanted a vendor with a positive attitude that aligned with our vision of the product.

For this project, I was considering several different frontend development companies. After speaking with Markupus, I selected them as our partner due to their relevant experience in the field.

SOLUTION

Markupus was recommended to me by a friend of a friend after another agency failed to meet our expectations. Markupus stepped in and took over the project once that agency let us down. They worked efficiently and actually delivered our first MVP [minimum viable project] 3 weeks ahead of schedule.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

I’ve had a flawless experience with Markupus. They continuously exceeded my expectations and produced the highest-quality deliverables I’ve seen to date. Their work is impeccable, from PSD to HTML/CSS. I also appreciate their ability to think outside of the box and offer suggestions that I’d never even thought about.
