What was the scope of their involvement?
I wrote down every functionality that I wanted to be included in the platform in an Excel spreadsheet. Then, they did the design and custom development work and helped us with the content on the site as well. Together, we found the perfect way to present and implement the platform.
We wanted it to be easy for caterers to upload their menus, which was a pretty complex task. Our priority was to make sure that the information on the platform was clear, reliable, and easy to use. Plus, the site enables a potential catering client to order from a specific caterer and the caterer to accept the order.
They still provide a lot of maintenance and support. If I have a problem, I send an email directly to the programming team and it is fixed right away.
What is the team composition?
I worked with about six people from their team including Geoffrey [Partner, MG2 Media], Mathieu [Partner, MG2 Media], the programming team, and the account manager, who handled all of our requests. Sometimes, however, we were redirected to designers or programmers.
How did you come to work with MG2 Media?
I submitted the project to several programming firms. We were about to sign a contract with another programming team and were lucky to find MG2 through a Google search. They understood our vision right away and were reasonably priced. It was an obvious decision for us. We met with Geoffrey right away. He showed us different projects he was working on. Their portfolio made us forget the other firms.
Our contract with MG2 had clear terms and was adjusted along the way. The pricing was collaborative; they understood what we needed and did everything to make it possible.
How much have you invested in them?
We spent $45,000 CAD ($35,690 USD).
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked together from May 2015 until October 2015.
