Porter Novelli

Agency decision makers, happy with Nopio’s previous projects, decided to bring us in to simplify the CMS, fix website visual and functional issues and add new custom features that were requested by content managers. We went through the existing system and advised the client that it wasn’t cost effective to continually update the existing system.

From there, the Nopio team estimated the cost of the needed updates would

surpass that of a clean rebuild with our usual clean and extremely easy-to-use CMS built on top of WordPress and Advanced Custom Fields plugins. The main points of the plan were:
  • Keep the existing style of the website but recreate them in order to eliminate all the issues with smooth scrolling, visual issues, and mobile experience.
  • Create new content management menus in the admin panel that are clear and easy to use by staff without web development training.
  • Make sure that the site is extendable so there are no problems with adding new features or sections.
  • Enhance the design with all the small details that were always planned but were not possible in the previous version of the build.
  • Make sure that the site is well optimized and has great performance.
  • Move all the content from the old site, including blog posts from the last 8 years.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Nopio consistently stayed in touch about timelines and expectations. Even when situations became stressful, the team stayed upbeat and optimistic about the project's future. They were very adaptable, leveraging their own outstanding technical resources or outsourcing to other capable partners.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

‎Solere Digital is an agency offering a staffing and talent management tool. We work primarily with freelancers and offshore development teams. Our company was formally launched in 2016. We're very young and work primarily in the content and commerce space, offering content marketing and strategy, as well as e-commerce strategy and platform development.

I am the Chief Executive Officer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nopio?

We needed to bring on knowledgeable developers with a broad range of technical experience. We also needed a company that we could trust and which would have a real presence at the table, not just take our specs and run with them, given that our tool would be central to the business. We needed a partner to work with us on user experience and the flow of the product, and wanted to be sure that they would not reuse our code for other purposes.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Nopio helped build our tool. It involved taking our idea for a staffing and talent management solution and building out a scope. There wasn't an existing model for it that we could fall back on. We shared many ideas with Nopio in the beginning, created light specifications, running through user stories, shaping them a bit better, and going through prioritization and structuring.

Nopio built our platform using open-source code, with Apache Solr as the primary backend for searching and discovering talent. Nopio also helped with testing and built much of the user interface design through a dedicated resource.

We've also worked with Nopio on a project which involved taking an ExpressionEngine e-commerce platform and revamping its flow and user experience. We made several iterations and translated the US version into a Japanese one. Nopio was in charge of everything, including ideation and scope setting based on our budget and the available technology, as well as launching the platform and installing various language packs.

We used Jira as a ticket management system.

How did you come to work with Nopio?

I had worked with Nopio in the past and knew that they were very good. Their principal and I started working together when I was running the project management team at a different company. We kept in touch, and when I started my current company and needed development resources, particularly a company that would be able to scale the effort, Nopio was my only choice.

How much have you invested with Nopio?

Nopio has worked on projects of various sizes for us. The larger projects have been in the $100,000 to $200,000 range.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

I assessed my success based on project delivery against the timeline and budget. Nopio consistently held up to both of those. Even when we had budget constraints, Nopio allowed me to scope the project in order to deliver within our limitations. The team has always delivered on time, and whenever something stretched out, we were kept informed.

What did you find most impressive about Nopio?

The reason for maintaining such a long relationship with the Nopio team was their attitude and personalities. Nopio has a work ethic which I haven't seen with other developers, even though I've worked with hundreds over time. Nopio's members have positive personalities. I've never had a difficult or negative conversation with them, which wasn't true for other vendors. Oftentimes, things got hairy in terms of timelines and budget, but there was an urgency for the communication put in place with the team, letting me know if there was a problem or if something was not technically possible. Every issue was brought up in a very positive manner, making it easy for me to work with Nopio.

Are there any areas Nopio could improve?

There have been 1-2 instances over all the projects I've worked on with Nopio over the last 8-9 years in which the project that we proposed wasn't achievable through the range of skillsets available. Examples include mobile iOS development or .NET. Without exception, Nopio found the right team or person, so we came to work with their partners in this manner. Nopio managed those partners, acting as a single point of contact. It was an overall positive experience, and Nopio has been able to handle 99% of the work we have sent to them, doing an amazing job.
