What was the scope of their involvement?
We made the decision to go with HubSpot shortly after meeting with Pixelcarve, and worked with them on the entire scope of the project. They completely redesigned the site, optimizing use of all the features HubSpot has to offer, including the addition of a company blog. They also wrote a great deal of custom code on HubSpot to make our platform unique. At the start of our engagement, they took the time to understand our brand and our history, and they managed to put the essence of that into the work they did for us.
It was a complicated project with several moving parts and various third-party software that had to integrate. We ran into some challenges with our applicant tracking system and HubSpot transferring data from the back end to the front end. To address this issue, Pixelcarve created a custom API that allowed us to take information from our applicant tracking system and display them correctly on the site. This was above and beyond the original scope of work, and they did a fantastic job on it. Additionally, we recently changed our applicant tracking system, and worked with them again to reintegrate everything and make sure the API was still working with the new system.
What is the team composition?
I worked with about six people total. At the start of the engagement I was working directly with their CEO, their VP of Sales, and a marketing manager to determine the scope of the project. When we started development, I transitioned to working with a project manager, a UX designer, and a full stack developer.
How did you come to work with Pixelcarve?
It started with a simple Google search. I needed to find a local development group, and Pixelcarve kept showing up as an option. After going through several amazing reviews, I sent them a quick email and they got back to me right away. When we met with them, their customer service totally blew us away. They were very engaging and professional, and were the only group that came out to meet with us.
How much have you invested with them?
Overall, we’ve invested between $35,000-$40,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in April 2016 and concluded October 2016. However, they have provided ongoing support since then, and we intend to continue working with them.
