Feedback summary: 

The new website promotes a professional online image and has been well received by staff and users. Boasting extensive skill and experience, Nirvana Canada delivers intuitive and broad-reaching marketing services. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I own Nordel Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic. We provide a full complement of therapeutic services—including active rehab, registered massage therapy, sports injury treatment, and cold laser therapy—to heal body ailments, encourage injury recovery, and promote a healthy lifestyle.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Nirvana Canada?

We started our physio clinic in May 2017. New to the business and with a substantial financial loan from the bank, we needed a compelling image and identity to help us grow quickly. 

What were your goals for this project?

We needed a strong brand and a customer-facing website at an affordable price.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were very frustrated with the five quotes we'd gathered from other internet companies that were either too expensive or inexperienced in our industry. We readily accepted a friend’s recommendation for Nirvana Canada; he was very happy with their marketing services for his own business. We met the founder and were instantly impressed with his in-depth knowledge of website development. 

Describe the project in detail.

Nirvana Canada designed the brand and logo for our clinic, designed and developed the website, and produced content. After seeing the quality of their work, we retained them for SEO and reputation management services. 

What was the team composition?

The company’s founder served as our primary point of contact throughout the project. We also communicated via phone with their head of content and client engagement regarding written material.  

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

All of our guests and staff were very pleased with the new website, which was finished promptly. Our branding and logo are prominently displayed, and we immediately realized an increase in phone calls and inquiries. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The team provided responsive and efficient communication. They were true professionals.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their competitive pricing ensures their clients receive great value for the money.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I can't think of anything.

Feedback summary: 

The software dramatically streamlined the quotation process and boosted revenue. Nirvana Canada’s technical expertise, smooth project management, and affordable pricing set them apart from other vendors.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am an area manager for a company that creates custom t-shirts, branded apparel, signs, banners, promotional products, and print services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Nirvana Canada?

We wanted to develop a tool for giving quotations to customers.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to have an easy quotation process, the ability to save quotes in a common database, and uniform pricing in all of our locations.  

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Initially, we checked Nirvana Canada’s website and past work. They had excellent online reviews. During their proposal presentation, it was clear that they knew what they were talking about. They also offered the most reasonable pricing.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Nirvana Canada made wireframe mock-ups of all the pages of the software. After the designs were finalized, they created HTML prototypes. We provided the formulas, as there is a complex logic involved in preparing quotations for embroidery services. We have to calculate the colors, stitches, location, and number of items. Afterward, Nirvana Canada gave us a link to the beta system where we could see the functionality and the workflow. Later, they helped us onboard salespeople in four locations.

What was the team composition?

Their project manager was my main contact. The team also included a graphic designer, a senior developer, and a coder.  

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We are happy with the software; it has been a great help to us. We used to keep the quotes or estimates on paper, but these were easy to lose. If the same customer came back, we had no clue what quote was given to them. With this tool, everything was centralized. Plus, our salespeople could easily produce a quote in a few seconds.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They completed the product on time. Nirvana Canada’s project manager was available for meetings whenever we wanted. She sent us updates via email and replied promptly.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Nirvana Canada’s team is highly skilled in software development. They stuck to the original price and never charged for anything extra.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Everything was good.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Unlike many other firms, Nirvana Canada takes time to listen to project needs and goals, implementing tailored solutions instead of generic products. Their team is highly capable and reliable, and their work has resulted in half a million website visitors a year.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.
I’m the CEO of Holidays for Humanity, an online media channel for impact tourism programs around the world, such as wildlife conservation and community development.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nirvana Canada?
We needed a well-built site that was scalable and allowed us to interact dynamically with our tourism partners so that we could reflect accurate pricing and changes in itineraries. It needed to be a frontend site that was comprehensive and directly interacted with our partners through various APIs.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?
Nirvana Canada has helped with nearly every step of our process, from developing the scope to implementing the design. I presented them with a vision of what I wanted, and they helped me understand the resources I’d need to accomplish that goal. They provided advice on what was technically feasible and what would help optimize time and cost.

They built the backend platform in Drupal, and the frontend sites are on WordPress with the APIs interacting with our partners’ websites. Nirvana Canada does live wireframing in a sandbox-like site, which allows us to move and interact with different digital components to see how they look in real time. Once those are approved, they then push them live.

As of now, we have a minimum viable product (MVP) that they’ve added features to and integrated with the Drupal backend. They’ve built four sites, our custom backend, and a tailored SEO and digital strategy.

What is the team composition? 
I mainly work with our account manager, but I can talk to anyone on the team, if necessary.

How did you come to work with Nirvana Canada?
I found them by doing some research online for web developers in my area. Unlike other firms who just sent us a general quote, Nirvana Canada listened to what we wanted and asked questions to make sure they understood our project. They even met with us to thoroughly review project requirements in order to better manage expectations. I appreciated that and was comfortable with their price, so I hired them.

How much have you invested with them?
We’ve worked together since February 2010, and the partnership is ongoing. 

What is the status of this engagement?
We’ve spent around $100,000.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We essentially started with nothing, and now we’re running a small but profitable business. Our web traffic is about 500,000 visitors a year, which is a great number for our niche industry.

How did Nirvana Canada perform from a project management standpoint?
Because their team is global, they’re always responsive and getting work done. I also appreciate that we’re able to sit down in-person and review the project progress.

What did you find most impressive about them?
They’ve been incredibly candid, flexible, and accommodating, especially as we’ve determined the best next steps for our projects. They offshore some elements of their team, which helps them effectively keep prices down and get work done around the clock. Unlike many other firms, they don’t have a problem with using shelf programs to speed up the process or save money; they only build custom products if we ask them or if they think it’ll provide better service.

Are there any areas they could improve?
No. They’re steady and reliable across the board.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?
Map out your vision and how you want your problem solved. They’ll ask lots of questions and listen to your responses, so be clear about what you want in order to optimize the partnership.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the manager of Speedy Tire Centers Limited, an automotive repair business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Nirvana Canada?

We wanted to develop a web presence to assist us in our marketing and organization efforts. This would allow customers to book inspections, repairs, and oil changes.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to engage our customers more with this website, so they trust us more and make us their first choice for their ongoing maintenance and needs.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Nirvana approached our team when they started working in our area. We didn’t sign on with them right away, but over time we agreed to use their services.

Describe the project in detail.

Our website’s current design was well done, but it wasn’t receiving a lot of customer interaction. Additionally, the diversity of services we offered was negatively impacting our bottom-line. Nirvana introduced a calendar and self-booking feature that helped us cap and better organize less productive jobs. Moreover, customers can use the self-booking feature to schedule their appointments, which allows them to interact with and trust our site more. Nirvana turned the booking feature around almost overnight and then adjusted it until it was perfect.

What was the team composition?

They have professional design and sales teams that are flexible and understanding, which helps them retain a large customer base.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Customer engagement with the website has increased by 50% since we introduced the calendar booking feature. We’ve also been able to promote coupons more efficiently. Everyone has reacted positively to the site.  

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Project management is absolutely one of their strengths. Their personal communication and responsiveness to change requests have helped them build up a strong portfolio of clients.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Even though we’re not one of their larger clients, they use their experience with bigger enterprises to suggest positive changes to us. They have low turnover, both in their clients and their design resources, and they offer competitive pricing. Because of how their design team is structured, they deliver final products rapidly.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I don’t have any complaints about their service. I highly recommend this group to anyone seeking web design services.
