Feedback summary: 

The video was released during a virtual event and the audience loved it. The plan to feature the video on the website as well. PUSH Collaborative was responsive and implemented changes quickly. Their efficiency ensured the project was delivered in a timely manner

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the chief engagement and external affairs officer of YAI. We’re one of the New York metropolitan area’s largest providers of services and support for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We provide a range of services including housing, medical care, job training, support for families, and respite programs.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PUSH Collaborative?

We’re a very large and complicated organization and it’s extremely hard to explain We thought a video could provide some clarity about what we do for the general public and fundraising audiences.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They produced an explainer video that is about two minutes long. I sent them a draft and a script and went about illustrating it.

What is the team composition?

I worked primarily with Rohan.

How did you come to work with PUSH Collaborative?

I worked with PUSH Collaborative maybe two years ago at a prior company. I couldn’t remember their name, but I found them again based on what I did remember and we picked up right where we left off before.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $4,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from May–June 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

The video is exactly what I had in mind. We used it for a live-stream broadcast for an event we usually hold in New York Central Park, but it was held virtually this year because of COVID-19. We had a great audience and everybody loved it online. We also plan to share the video on our website.

How did PUSH Collaborative perform from a project management standpoint?

It was a fairly tall order. They were also quick to implement changes, I could ask questions, and they pushed back when needed. Overall, it was great. We had 2–3 phone calls over the course of the engagement, other than that, it was primarily email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I liked the style of their projects. When I first started working with them, I needed a partner that could work with a nonprofit.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not really.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I would say this for anybody—you need to know what you want. How could any vendor possibly provide what you need unless you clearly tell them?

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a services consulting and software firm that handles indirect expenses on behalf of large companies. My role is to lead the marketing and communication efforts.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PUSH Collaborative?

We hired PUSH Collaborative to help us build out our brand and raise visibility of our company and our solution.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We partnered with PUSH Collaborative on developing a corporate explainer video. I’ll be using them for other projects as well; this was the first effort around a general corporate video.

What is the team composition?

We just worked with one person.

How did you come to work with PUSH Collaborative?

I’ve worked with them on several projects at previous companies, so I was familiar with the company and their services.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent less than $5,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

This project began in February 2020, and it just wrapped up at the end of May. We will certainly be working with them in the future on other video-related projects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The results are positive in terms of anecdotal feedback; customers, partners, and company employees love the asset. We’re using the video in awareness efforts and are running various paid campaigns to get people to view it. It’s still early in terms of launch and seeing any tangible results, but the fact of the matter is, it’s an asset to help build the brand. It’s going to drive traffic; we’ll see whether it drives top-line results.

How did PUSH Collaborative perform from a project management standpoint?

They were excellent. Their team was easy to work with. They understood messaging really quickly and hit deadlines. The team was great at managing up and setting expectations. The final creative is always very good from PUSH Collaborative.

We communicated in different ways. We went back and forth over email when developing out scripts. They were very approachable and responsive via phone when we needed to clarify anything.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s nice to work directly with the principal of the company. I have a good relationship with him. He’s very approachable and is willing to work with clients on realistic budgeting.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I wish I had something constructive, but I don’t; that’s why I’ve worked with them on half a dozen projects, if not more, over the last couple of years, and will continue to work with them.  

Any advice for potential customers?

Have a general vision as to what you want your video to look like, as well as what you want to say. Realize that when you’re creating scripts for a 90-second video, it has to have short, tight, and punchy sentences; you can’t be long with prose. 

Just have that general framework and work directly with PUSH Collaborative – they’re good at honing the framework and finalizing it, and then obviously design, development, and final product. They’re the creative ones, so let them have creative license around your vision, and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Cascadia Scientific, a company that provides fuel measurements and decision intelligence to the mining sector.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PUSH Collaborative?

We have some pretty complicated use cases and one of the challenges was distilling a complex but significant value proposition into a readily consumable, highly-relatable media asset.

We explain a lot of our use cases with white papers, prose, figures, and pictures. But there’s something about video that’s compelling.

It allows you to convey a fairly complicated context and value in a short period of time to an audience that doesn’t have to be active in their consumption of the information.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

First, PUSH Collaborative developed a very high-level explainer video. Since then, we’ve also engaged with them for use case and value proposition explainer videos. Rohan (Creative Director) is working on a 4-pack of similarly-themed, animated videos. 

All of our videos have been in three languages — English, Spanish, and Portuguese — because we have to sell to mining geographies. So Rohan works with the narrators, does scripting, and provides sketch boards.

What is the team composition?

I mainly worked with Rohan.

How did you come to work with PUSH Collaborative?

I had worked for a company before that had a very well-developed marketing consultant who was helping us. She was the one who first engaged PUSH Collaborative and I was very impressed with their work when she showed it to me. So, I decided that I would engaged with Rohan at this new company.

How much have you invested with them?

So far, we’ve spent upwards of $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began at the end of 2018, and it’s ongoing. The first explainer video was completed. Of the 4-pack, two of the videos have been completed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

I’m very satisfied, and we’ve had good successes. Rohan is quite responsive and prompt with his work. My team and I have very positive things to say about PUSH Collaborative’s work. We’ve recognized that video is a very powerful tool to get our message out.

How did PUSH Collaborative perform from a project management standpoint?

PUSH Collaborative hits their targets and delivers on time. Rohan communicates with us via email, and he’s doing a great job of managing our account and our animations. 

Right now we’re giving him a challenge in terms of taking a topic that’s a bit drier and animating it. I’ve been very satisfied with the workflow, communication, and level of interaction.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve appreciated PUSH Collaborative’s ability to think in terms of our business even though they’re far removed from it. We’re working in the mining, data analytics, and industrial spaces, which are far removed from their industry.

We explain the use case or value proposition we want to animate, and he always takes it upon himself to write the first part of the script which we’ve appreciated. That first script is usually a long way from being useable. 

However, when he gives us that first script, it gives us a starting point as opposed to starting from a blank sheet of paper. Rohan’s ability to give us a guardrail to start with has been useful, and it’s helped us to get from nothing to having a completed storyboard and then a video. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

Sometimes we have to go through a round or two of edits because there are errors that the team didn't catch when they could've. However, whenever we ask for changes, Rohan is always accommodating.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If you’re interested in an animated explainer video, I would absolutely recommend PUSH Collaborative because they’ve been very helpful and their prices are reasonable for what they provide. Our working experience has been very positive.

Feedback summary: 

The explainer video that PUSH Collaborative created for the mining client performed extremely well and boosted sales. They are a supportive partner, providing answers to any questions that come up, which makes for a smooth process. The team is collaborative and they offer great value.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-Founder & CEO of Simmons Sharpe, a small digital marketing boutique that deals mostly with B2B and technology clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PUSH Collaborative?

We’ve worked with them several times. First, we hired them to work with us on a project for a small B2B IoT client who was in a very specific vertical. They had a complex product and service offering that we had to simplify. 

We decided that an explainer video that could live on the site and be sent to the audience would be the best way to do this. The client was in the global mining vertical so the video had to be targeted to operations people and CFOs in mining centers around the globe.

Additionally, we had another pre-revenue client who is working on cybersecurity for IoT devices by addressing quantum computing. This client had a conference and we needed a video that could introduce quantum computing to the audience.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They made a video for the mining client that explained the products and services to a diverse audience. For the quantum computing project, we had to go through several iterations with PUSH Collaborative.

They didn’t write the script, but they gave us feedback about how to cut out certain information. We also had an on-staff graphic designer who came up with the initial look and feel, and we gave that to the team.

Rohan (Creative Director) provided creative direction on how to shoot the videos. For example, instead of animating it straight on, the team animated the video as an isometric. They made it so that it was elevated but off to the side. 

What is the team composition?

There was a larger team, but we only worked on a personal level with Rohan.

How did you come to work with PUSH Collaborative?

We went online and our technical lead found PUSH Collaborative. They looked interesting, had a good portfolio with high-profile clients, and were strong in technology. I had to sell the idea to our clients because they believe that going with a US supplier versus a Canadian one was inefficient.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $5,000–$9,000 per engagement. So we’ve probably spent just below $50,000 in total. 

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began about three years ago, and it’s ongoing. Because of the pandemic, we’re slow right now.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

The explainer video project for the IoT client in the mining vertical went very well and it has the best results of any marketing push that we’ve done before. It continually measured on a video tracking tool. It moved sales and did exactly what we wanted it to do. 

I’m very happy with Rohan’s work. He’s fast, understands the brief quickly, and adds to the process. When I wasn’t sure what to do, he had the right answers. PUSH Collaborative demystified the process and made it easier for us. 

How did PUSH Collaborative perform from a project management standpoint?

The project management has been pretty smooth. We’re not unreasonable people so when we give him a deadline, we let Rohan tell us if that will be an issue or not. He’s even worked on weekends and nights to do the work. 

PUSH Collaborative shows up and gets the job done. The majority of our communication is done via email. Once we get to a point where the details are getting very specific, we then jump on a call and go through things on a frame by frame basis. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Rohan is good at understanding what the challenge is and being collaborative in coming up with a solution that works. The team provides great value for the product. I’ve done a lot of commercial production in my life.

What you can get from a company like PUSH Collaborative versus a more conventional source is dramatically different. One of our clients insisted on cross-quoting, and we found that the nearest competitor cost twice as much. Rohan’s system is very efficient. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, nothing comes to mind. We’re not looking for a permanent partner; we’re looking for good value, an innate understanding of what we’re trying to do, and a final product that is going to hold up on a global basis. They bring all of that to the table. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If you’re working with Rohan, everything will go well.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the chief strategy and marketing officer for Accurics. We’re a cybersecurity startup.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PUSH Collaborative?

We just launched our company out of stealth. We needed a way to articulate our story to our audience, especially because we needed a big PR campaign for our launch and we had a lot of people visiting our website.

We partnered with PUSH Collaborative to create a story through video that really resonated with our audience .

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They created a two-minute explainer video. It tells our company story in an animated form. The story arc center around the fact that we’re in the business of securing the cloud. So it starts by focusing on the newest trends in cloud and what companies are experiencing. Then it discusses the implication on security. From there, it talks about how to best solve those challenges.

What is the team composition?

I worked with the primary owner directly.

How did you come to work with PUSH Collaborative?

I’ve worked with them at four other startups. For each company I’ve worked with, I’ve hired PUSH Collaborative to create an initial explainer video. I’ve had tremendous success with them.

How much have you invested with them?

This video cost $6,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in the beginning of April 2020 and we launched about four weeks later.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

Our investors and our internal team love the video. Our team really identifies with the story. We did an internal poll, and everyone rated the video very highly. On a scale of 1–5, the team average was 4.75.

How did PUSH Collaborative perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re absolute professionals. They require very minimal oversight. We’ve worked together so many times, our workflow is seamless. They laid out the process at the start of our engagement and outlined what each stage would be.

They’re very collaborative and can iterate on any changes that we ask for. They’re also very proactive and have suggested recommendations. By the time we saw the final video, we. Didn’t have any feedback because we worked together throughout the project.

What did you find most impressive about them?

No matter what industry I’ve been in when we’ve worked together, they’ve always been able to deliver. They’re able to graph different domains and have helped us articulate our story.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

My advice would be to share the story you want to tell before you engage with them. It’s difficult to make changes along the way and the process is so much smoother if you know what you want the outcome to be.

The first video was such a success that the client signed up with PUSH Collaborative to create seven more videos. PUSH Collaborative executes on concepts well while being flexible with changing scopes. Their clear and responsive communication stands out.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a tech company that produces an AI-driven platform. I’m a senior producer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PUSH Collaborative?

We needed help with creating animated videos.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Given our remote environment, we can’t produce videos traditionally (i.e., with a video camera in the same room as our subjects). We now produce video via Zoom and QuickTime and make them partly live-action, partly animated. It’s a video series where our subjects talk in the background while a giant whiteboard animates the concepts they’re talking about.

First, I’d have meetings with executives — the video subjects. After I film them and edit the footage, I tell Rohan (Creative Director) what to animate. Our head of design designs what the piece will look like. Rohan collaborates with our head of design and me — the director — to get the piece we want.

What is the team composition?

I only work with Rohan.

How did you come to work with PUSH Collaborative?

My company had worked with PUSH Collaborative before I joined on.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

This project started in March 2020 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

After we saw the first video Rohan produced, we put him on a longer contract to do seven more. The series has won a lot of engagement on LinkedIn. Everyone says the videos look great, and we’ve received lots of praise for our content factory’s ability to pivot during the coronavirus pandemic. Partners like Rohan have been instrumental in our ability to pivot successfully. 

How did PUSH Collaborative perform from a project management standpoint?

I love working with Rohan. He’s a great communicator with a really good attitude that makes him easy to collaborate with. Whenever I direct something and then have to change it, he rolls with the punches. He always gets back to me immediately as well. Having that level of communication has helped me the most: I have to juggle a lot of projects, but I always know where I stand with PUSH Collaborative. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’d recommend PUSH Collaborative to everyone that’s looking for animated videos. Rohan is quite wonderful.

Any advice for potential customers?

When working with any animated video company, it’s important to give them clear direction and set them up for success. Sometimes you might have a clear idea in your mind, but if you don’t communicate that to the animator, then you’re not going to get what you want.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work at one of the largest virtual accounting firms in the United States. I serve as the design manager. But, recently I transitioned more into the marketing and communications manager role as well. 

I try to engage potential leads to purchase tax preparation, bookkeeping, payroll, and tax advisory services. Now, we’re offering stimulus support and loan filing preparation as well.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PUSH Collaborative?

One of our design and marketing initiatives is creating videos that we feature on our YouTube channel and website. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I’ve worked with them on creating 7–8 short, animated videos. 

I typically put together a script and work with PUSH Collaborative on creating a storyboard. We’d break it down into several frames, give feedback, and make changes if needed.

Then, they’d do the production of the video using Adobe Illustrator and After Effects to create a short version of the video (which have ranged between 30 seconds and two minutes long).

For our last couple of videos, we did industry-specific videos to make the experience more personalized. We want to target specific industries that make up a large percentage of our clientele right now. 

What is the team composition?

I’m in contact with Rohan (Creative Director). He’s my direct point of contact, and he has a team working for him.

How did you come to work with PUSH Collaborative?

I started working with PUSH Collaborative shortly after I started working at my company. I'm not sure who started the engagement with them.

How much have you invested with them?

On average, we’re spending $3,000 per-video. We’ve spent about $15,000 to $20,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

I started working with PUSH Collaborative in October 2017 shortly after I started at my company, and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

I love the videos they’ve produced. If I need short, animated videos in the future, I’d go to PUSH Collaborative again. 

The videos have been helpful because we’ve been seeing an uptick in engagement and fewer questions about certain topics. In particular, we see engagement on our YouTube channel and more traffic coming to our website. Going forward, when we’re able to do more videos, we’ll be able to narrow down which videos are working well.

We feature the videos on our website and our YouTube channel. We’ve also added some videos into our emails from our sales team. We’ve featured them on social media, specifically on Facebook.

How did PUSH Collaborative perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve been very happy with their service. They’re responsive, they email back right away and they never miss a deadline. If there’s ever a delay, they would let me know right away. 

The quality has been great as well. Any changes have been due to internal reasons and not a lack of quality on their end.

They are experienced professionals that understand the video production process well. Their working style is really effective from the script creation to the storyboard and then to the final video delivery.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are very friendly, and they get their tasks done quickly and efficiently. If they don’t hear from me in a while, they’ll reach out to me, which is nice. They’ll send me an email with a new highlight reel of recent work, and they stay engaged with us throughout the year.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing comes to mind — I think they’re doing a great job. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

You should work with them if you’re looking to get videos created at a great price and you want to work with someone who understands the tools, has a friendly approach, and meets deadlines. They’re a company you can trust.

Feedback summary: 

Push Collaborative's video has received a lot of great feedback. Streamlining communication, they used only one project manager to communicate with the client which made things easier. The team displayed patience and adapted well to the client's internal changes.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Chronicled is the custodian of MediLedger, an industry-lead, blockchain-based network within the life science industry. We build solutions on top of the MediLedger Network to facilitate trust and enable automation between trading partners. Our focus is on supply chain and revenue management within the pharmaceutical industry. My role as Head of Marketing is to drive our marketing strategy including messaging, where this video was absolutely crucial for us.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PUSH Collaborative?

We hired Push Collaborative to produce our product video prior to an upcoming product release.

What were your goals for this project?

To have a video created that effectively communicated the problem and solution for our new product.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Spoke with several companies and got references for each. Push Collaborative seemed like the best value for service and quality.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

The video we made was about 2:26 seconds and started with a script that we went through several iterations on. Push Collaborative was most helpful in the storyboarding process as we iterated on different ways to visualize the script. The animation went smoothly once we had a clear storyboard.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We set clear deadlines and Push Collaborative was able to meet all of them and communicated well when things were delayed. Great communication throughout the process, even when we changed our minds on several things, which was usually the reason for delays.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Great video, already receiving great feedback from our team and the market at large.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

I only communicated with Rohan, which made things simpler as he had a clear handle on the work being done by his team and himself.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I appreciated their patience as we were figuring a lot of things out internally while the process was going on, which meant multiple things that we thought were set in stone were changed later. Push Collaborative adapted well.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There were a couple times where I would have expected a bit more expert advice or pushback on ideas that I was bringing to the table. For example the last phase of our project was to add sound effects to the video behind the voiceover. This was an idea I had suggested a few times, but when we received the finished version with sound effects it was clearly a bad idea to begin with as it was just too much for a viewer to take in. We used the version without sound effects as the final version, which our team internally felt was one of the best videos we have ever had made. So this had zero impact on the outcome of project.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Internal stakeholders praise the videos for their aesthetics and are excited about their impending launch. PUSH Collaborative was proactive with their communication and quick to understand and acclimate to their client’s business. Customers can expect a partner that values research and preparation.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are The American Equity Underwriters, and we provide worker’s comp insurance to longshoremen – people that do shipyard work. I’m the senior marketing manager, in charge of five people that do content creation, events, and other marketing efforts to build retention and generate leads for our company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PUSH Collaborative?

We have a lot of people that do onboarding of new clients and we wanted to give them a consistent message. We’ve done that via welcome letters, but as we create more multi-media content we really wanted a new experience for that. Therefore, we set out to create an onboarding video we could send out to combine with the people doing the onboarding.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We went through an interview process with PUSH, and they were able to put together something. Our business is very complex and niche, so it’s hard to understand sometimes. We’ve had a lot of experience with marketing people or content developers not understanding us in the past, but PUSH did a great job of coming up with a script that was pretty close to what we wanted. I mean, nobody’s perfect, and they did a great job.

They delivered three-minute videos, including the onboarding one. We realized we had a similar need for a separate product (we were rolling out a safety program), and they did that video as well. They handled all the storyboarding, equipment, and shooting for them.

What is the team composition?

I specifically worked with Rohan (Creative Director, PUSH Collaborative), almost exclusively. One other person helped with the scripting as well.

How did you come to work with PUSH Collaborative?

I’d started looking through some of the websites that offer to connect you with freelancers about a year ago. Then, we put the project on the backburner before revisiting it. I developed a relationship with Rohan in that time.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $15,000 with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from September 2019 until April 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

We plan to launch the videos in the next week or so, and the internal feedback I’ve received from stakeholders is very positive. They’re really excited about it. Working with them was so easy. They understood our feedback and were able to implement it. This was very painless. Our director of marketing immediately loved it, and our COO was very excited about how it looked and how well it fit our brand.

How did PUSH Collaborative perform from a project management standpoint?

It felt very seamless. When we got our responses back to them, Rohan got back to us or followed up in a reasonable timeframe. He was also really good about following up with me when the ball was in my court. Everything moved very quickly. He got things to me when he promised he would. I didn’t have to hold his hand or manage him through the process.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The main thing was, as we were building the script and the storyboard, I felt like they did their homework. As I said, we’re a complex business, and even in our first call when we were developing the script, it felt like they’d been on our website and done some reading. Then, it was just a matter of clarifying things and redirecting a bit.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t have criticism of any kind.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Know what your goals and outcomes are at the outset, and make sure your stakeholders are on the same page. Having a clear vision going in makes it easy to run with.

PUSH Collaborative delivered high-quality content at an affordable price and within a quick turnaround time. Their collaborative approach prompted a seamless workflow. Customers can expect a skilled and receptive team. 

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the manager of sales enablement and magazine production at Cvent. We’re in the corporate meeting and event management software space. I manage the production of a luxury portion of the business while also performing sales enablement for the hospitality cloud side of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PUSH Collaborative?

Cvent holds a big conference in Las Vegas every year. Last year, we wanted to do an audit of our product videos that explain them and how to use them. During this, we realized a lot of them were outdated. We had a bunch of videos that we needed to create in a short period of time. While we can do a lot of that stuff in-house, the timeline was too quick.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

After we put the script together, I would get together with our product teams and go over the visuals that we wanted to highlight. A lot of the time, there were general ideas, so I relied on PUSH Collaborative to pull them together with a nice and conceptualized flow.

Rohan (Creative Director) made nine product videos in the two–four-minute range. Each one highlights a particular product, and we can run them on loop at the conference to give our attendees a bit of education on the products. The videos were animated but used a lot of stock footage, screen recordings of our products at work, and static screenshots of the products itself that they would excite with data.

What is the team composition?

Rohan was my main point of contact. I’m not sure if anyone else was involved.

How did you come to work with PUSH Collaborative?

The head of our video department had worked with Rohan in the past. They’d done similar videos and heavily animated videos together in the past. He suggested Rohan and another company. I got a more receptive vibe from Rohan.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent roughly $25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started engaging with PUSH Collaborative in March 2019, and our last show was in September 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We’re very satisfied with the content they delivered. During our tradeshows, we showcased the videos in the area where we introduce our products. People get to talk to representatives and see demos. The videos had enough motion and movement to keep viewers interested. It works perfectly for us.

Different groups view the videos at the conferences. We also have them posted on our website, embedded on our product pages.

How did PUSH Collaborative perform from a project management standpoint?

Rohan was great. We’re a fast-moving company. A struggle on my end is getting the required teams to weigh in at times, but Rohan was patient with me.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They delivered everything we wanted within a reasonable price and in a timely manner. If there were any delays, they were on us. It was easy to work with them, and we’re happy with the end results.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The project took longer than I wanted, but that was on my team. I’m working on ways to get faster from my side because we couldn’t keep up with Rohan. There’s nothing about them I would change.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Rohan and I were in constant contact. I gave him an outline, and then he was able to make suggestions going off that. It’s a collaborative process if you let it be.
