BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder and CEO of Elision. Our service is a podcast platform for people who are interested in audio-visual content. The product allows podcasters to upload their content and get an outcome from it, and listeners get unlimited access to all podcasts available on the Internet. One of the main competitive advantages of Elision is the way audio content is designed and displayed.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire QubStudio?

We wanted to improve our existing app and add more functionality in order to make it more intuitive and comfortable for users. The most challenging was to create a better layout for the player to make listening to podcasts more engaging and continuous. Also our goal was to attract more unique podcasters and help them gain profit and popularity.

What were your goals for this project?

Their team drastically improved our user experience to make it a lot easier for users to onboard onto our platform and interact with the content, as well as making it easier for us to manage all of the elements involved on our end.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I’d heard about QubStudio and the quality they provide many times. I looked through the website, got acquainted with the approach and portfolio and decided to try it.

Describe the project in detail.

Listening to podcasts became engaging and continuous by redesigning player layout and adding a list of recommended episodes which play automatically after the current one. The design team improved navigation, playback controls, suggested different options for advertising on the platform, created templates for sharing episodes and podcasts in social media, and more.

What was the team composition?

We were working with the PM, Lead UX/UI designer and UX/UI designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Qubstudio is a very skillful UX / UI design team. They were able to quickly dive into my domain to understand both needs of business and users and generate different options for solving the problems.

I felt a partnership working with the team. They were using the principle of out of the box thinking which helped in the generation of creative decisions. Their work on the service has helped us get investments and relaunch the product on Google Play and App Store.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The team has always been in touch. The communication process is at a very high level.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Qubstudio team covered all issues in the service for a very short period of time and we received great results. The design team was highly motivated and always took the initiative. I liked that the company was guided by the principles of product design.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can’t really answer this question, as our collaboration has been effective, and it gave us great business results. Highly recommended this design agency!

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We at Hi Live help you learn by connecting you with the best music producers and DJs directly”

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire QubStudio?

We faced an ecosystem-related issue: our landing page did not convert well. It did not have a clear call-to-action, the copies were not speaking the language of the core customers, it did not have a clear proposition, and did not do enough “handholding” for the potential customers. We hired QubStudio to create a new landing page.

What were your goals for this project?

The goal was to develop a better-converting, more user-friendly landing page.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

There were a few other vendors in the region, but they looked the most professional, and most reliable.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They designed, developed and fine-tuned the responsive landing page.

What was the team composition?

The project team had three key people: - project manager - designer/developer - business analyist

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

After the new landing page is online for a few weeks, we've already realized a better conversion. Industry professionals mentioned that they really like the new page.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project management was very impressive, they handled it very efficiently. After and before every important step, they always scheduled a call with us to discuss the details.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their efficient project management, high-quality designs, and fast responses stood out.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There is very little they can improve. My only suggestion is that they could maybe create a template sheet where the clients can give feedback in an organized way.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Aden is a startup incubating a video streaming service focused on bridging the best parts of the traditional pay-TV model with the user experience of newer digital media services. My role has been to focus on the ideation, business plan and development of the potential service using a combination of my own personal and professional experiences in the entertainment industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire QubStudio?

I worked closely with QubStudio to develop wireframes and a hi-fidelity mobile prototype that would help illustrate the core value proposition and features of the service.

What were your goals for this project?

My primary goal was to be able to articulate the vision for this service with potential users, future hires and eventually investors. Developing a prototype would help show how the offering not only differentiates itself from other existing services from both a content offering and user experience, but also solves core problems users have around content discovery, personalization, and the passive viewing experience.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

After doing initial research on both freelancers and agencies focused on UX/UI design across the world. Based on references from other startups who appreciated the broad access to high-caliber, English speaking and cost-effective talent available in the Ukraine, I interviewed and assessed proposals from several agencies and selected QubStudio based on their process, communication and quality of previous work products.

Describe the project in detail.

Over the course of several months, we had weekly video conference calls to build up to a high-fidelity prototype. We initially started with a research phase to focus on the problem, outline the core value propositions and understand the market landscape both in terms of competition and trends.

We then focused on creating a user persona and user journey map to help guide the information architecture. Using moodboards and SWOT analyses of various competitors, initial wireframes were created to start laying the initial frameworks of the app. Then we focused on UI design that eventually led to a high-fidelity, clickable mobile prototype.

What was the team composition?

The Qubstudio team consisted of one senior and one junior UX/UI designer.

 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The prototype has been shared with my network and I have been able to gain valuable feedback. The work that was completed will also make it easier to describe the service to potential developers as we move from design to development.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The weekly conference calls and constant communication over email facilitated a smooth process where information and updates were continuously shared between both parties. There were healthy debates and feedback sessions that improved various features and flows of the final product.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I appreciated their responsiveness and to go the extra mile to make sure the client was pleased with both the process and product.

Are there any areas for improvement?

From a client perspective, I believe I could have done a better job communicating and providing feedback faster and helped better articulate certain core aspects of the service. Once I was able to do that, the team quickly adapted the service to meet my vision.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Sonnenklar is one of the biggest German travel agencies on TV and the Internet. Our focus is to improve our online activities and we were looking for mobile-first UX design companies to help us adjust to the modern market needs.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire QubStudio?

Qubstudio was hired to do a UX review of the client’s purchasing journey and suggest improvements without changing our existing UI elements.

What were your goals for this project?

To simplify the mobile and web experience as our website has become too big as we got more and more offerings. We also needed to engage with new audiences who make decisions differently now.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

One of our partners recommended Qubstudio because they had a successful collaboration in the past. We had a number of calls and then Qubstudio prepared a detailed plan before starting the project. They showed excellent communication processes and quickly understood the specifics of our business, so it wasn’t a hard decision.

Describe the project in detail.

We used to have Desktop as the main point of contact with our audience, but as now people prefer more mobile experience, we had to make changes to how people buy vacation plans. We needed someone who could find out how our existing product could be improved without building such a big product from scratch.

What was the team composition?

We had the development team on our side and Qubstudio performed as our UX design vendors. They provided us with a team of lead designer, UX designer, and a project manager who ensured that all deadlines were met and that no miscommunication happened.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project has just ended and we still need some things to do before publishing and testing at the moment, however, all of our team is happy with how our updated product works and we’re excited to give it to our users.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Guys from Qubstudio were constantly asking for feedback and quickly reacted to it. We had weekly sync calls, the deliverables were submitted in time. Qubstudio did a great job syncing and iterating with our front-end developer, QA in Figma and Slack.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

It was a challenging project and Qubstudio was absolutely helpful on this path. They jumped in quite fast and stayed within the estimated timeline. They took the UI elements we had before and made look fresh and engaging for our users. It saved us a lot of time and our loyal customers will not get confused.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I’d recommend to give them the feedback they’re asking for as soon as possible because they respect it and know how to deal with it. Timely feedback will save you from any avoidable rework. We’re absolutely happy with our partnership and will come back as soon as we need more design services.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Taking the deliverables far past an MVP, the team offered plenty of screens and design options to the client, exceeding expectations. Their responsiveness helped them address problems as they arose, yielding impressive final designs. They were communicative and focused throughout.

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 RankScience, which is a SaaS testing software platform. Our team is based in San Francisco, and we have about 15 people on staff.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with QubStudio?

Design talent is pretty scarce, and we’ve had full-time designers on staff that weren’t a good fit for the business. We decided to bring on QubStudio as a replacement for a full-time designer.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

In an effort to revamp our existing UX, they started with an informational interview to learn more about the product. After they collected information from us, they interviewed some potential users to identify various pain points with the existing UI/UX. From there, the team got to work on solutions, starting to create mockups and visions for the final product.

What is the team composition?

Their team consisted of three people: a project manager, design director, and another designer.

How did you come to work with QubStudio?

They were recommended to me through an internal forum. Other startup founders had used them and found them to be a tremendous value. I decided to give them a try based on that recommendation.

How much have you invested with them?

So far, we’ve invested about $30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them around May 2019, and we’re still collaborating currently.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our users praise the new products for being much more intuitive than before. All of our feedback has been super positive. We’re happy with their work as well. They really thought through onboarding and how users would experience the app for the first time. 

The delivered product is much more than bare-bones MVP designs. Instead, the team was thoughtful and gave us tons of different screens and animation options. They really went the extra mile. 

How did QubStudio perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been excellent, willing to hop on the phone every other day for conference calls. Their team is proactive about sending us UI/UX notes and screens when we need them. We had about two calls each week, but they were proactive with communication and called as needed. Aside from those calls, we spoke mostly over email. Because they’ve been fantastic, we’re hoping to continue using their services.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The quality of their designs is above and beyond what we expected. They have incredible designers on staff with amazing customer support skills. They’ve always been proactive about solving our problems, some of which we weren’t even aware of beforehand. It was nice to have a partner that could consider the big picture while working.  

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing comes to mind.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They’re proactive and able to come up with ideas, so put work into preparing for their calls each week. That’ll move the project along faster.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CIO at a drugstore chain in Ukraine. Our company has more than 1000 employee, and we have about one million clients. I oversee our digital products and vendor relationships.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire QubStudio?

Our company mobile application created over five years ago, and we decided to develop a new version. We had many ideas what we wanted to develop in a news release, but we didn't have specialists in-house which could realize all ideas in modern design. So we needed to outsource the entire redesign.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to simplify our existing functionality and decrease the count of screens. We wanted that new to be easier to use and has more functionality. And last but not list that a new design would be modern.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I asked my colleagues for the recommendations vendors, which can realize our project. I had a list of 5 vendors, and I got proposals from them. After analyzed proposals with our steering committee and many meets with the vendors, We decided to work with this company, because they looked more professional than other company.

Describe the project in detail.

In the kick-off stage, we had several meetings to clarify our goals and objectives. The vendor started with research customers behavior and introduced results. Next steps were prepared mockups and after our approval vendor began work on the design.

When the vendor finished the first page, our team started developed this page. When we finished the application, the vendor did QA and sent bugs list for resolving. We delivered a very nice app.

What was the team composition?

From the vendor, side assigned four peoples (PM, BA, UX, UI) and from our team worked on this project, three people (PM, 2 x developers).

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

After release the new version, we saw a 50% increase count of the installed app and increase revenue from the mobile app.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project manager that assigned to our project provided a frequent update and scheduled regular meetings. We used MS Teams for all communication and once a month had a meeting in our office. I had precise information about the project, and I knew that all was in under controls.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed by their research about our clients' online behavior and wishes. This company clearly understood our clients and their pain points. This research was beneficial for other projects. And of course, their knowledge in professional area was very high.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Everything could be better, but I very satisfied with the results what we got.
