The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Unplugged Hotel Group (UHG) is a young company that’s currently working on its first hotel opening in September 2019. UHG is also working on several projects on a consultancy basis.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PixelGrow?

We’ve worked with PixelGrow for quite a while now. We hired them to develop a website for our other business. At the moment, they’re working on the UHG website and several presentations.

What were your goals for this project?

We want a professional website for our hotel group that is separate from the hotel website.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We chose to work with PixelGrow again due to our experiences with them in the past.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

PixelGrow designed our logo and website.

What was the team composition?

We always talk directly to the project manager, who is in charge of the developers and designers. This makes communication very clear. I know that the team consists of about 16 members, but I’ve only talked to three of them over the past couple of years.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The current project is not live, so there hasn’t been much of an impact yet. We have seen an impact from our previous projects. The former projects were property websites that included booking modules. The new websites that PixelGrow built increased direct bookings by about 20%. The design of the site made booking easier, and this prompted a rise in engagement.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Our project managers are always available to answer questions, receive feedback, and offer suggestions. They set aside time to discuss projects steps and talk through design choices and options.

These projects have truly been a cooperation. Communication has been easy and straightforward and can go through various channels. We reach out primarily via email or phone.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The operation seems to be extremely lean. The way that communication flows and the extremely fast reactions have made for efficient development processes. PixelGrow is also willing to have in-person meetings despite being located on the other side of the world. The team is exceptionally collaborative.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Not at the moment.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The application is live and currently being marketed to its users. The team managed the workflow very well, communicating effectively, and ensuring that any issues were addressed professionally and quickly.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We’re a startup company in the U.K., looking at applications to assist vulnerable animals and humans.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PixelGrow?

We needed the development of an MVP for an idea we had researched. The MVP was to gain proof of concept and possible investor funds.

What were your goals for this project?

The app needed to be clean and simple to use as it is likely going to be used in an emergency. Our funds were limited so that was an important consideration.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I was introduced to Daniel (CEO and Co-Founder, PixelGrow) and we had an initial video call. I could tell he really understood what I was after and the long-term vision around the app.

Describe the project in detail.

They developed the MVP of the app. It allows pet owners to upload a picture of their pet, their phone number, and whether the animal is microchipped. If their pet goes missing, they press the picture of their pet to send a push notification out to all other users in a 5-mile radius, creating an immediate search party. The searchers can press the telephone number on their screen to call the owners and owners can cancel the alert.

What was the team composition?

There was a team of five. We were assigned a project manager, who I corresponded with throughout the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our MVP is live and we’re now marketing it to relevant consumers. It does everything we want it to do at the moment.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It was highly effective, and we had good, open communication despite the language barrier. All issues that were raised were dealt with promptly.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their speed of production and problem-solving abilities exceeded my expectations.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There are none at this stage.

We rely on their expertise to help us develop the best possible product.

What is the team composition?

We work with four or five members of their team. There's a project manager, plus we have some contact with the developers.
