What was the scope of their involvement?
Mayven spends 95% of their time working on the subscription site and 5% on the marketing site. The marketing site is a PHP site on WordPress, while the subscription site is also PHP but with a Laravel framework. Mayven handled the development work from scratch while a different company did the design work.
The marketing site is a static content WordPress site, making it the simpler of the two sites. It has over 30 marketing-related pages that describe who we are, what we do, and the services we provide.
The subscription site is quite robust and much more complex. The site enables dynamic meal selection as our meals change every week. Once customers sign up for a subscription, they have the ability to order certain meals, skip a week, add on meals for any age, etc. They can also update their shipping information and email address.
We also have a few integrations on the subscription site, including a payment processing system, a customer support system, and a shipping and logistics system. An administration backend enables us to use the site from a customer service perspective. For example, we can download reports, create promo codes, start a referral program, etc.
How did you come to work with Mayven?
They were highly recommended to us by the firm that designed our sites. While we also interviewed a few other web development firms, Mayven immediately demonstrated a strong understanding of what we were trying to accomplish. They also had the development resources required by the project.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with Mayven in early 2016 and continue to work with them.
