STOLMAR

For Stolmar - http://stolmar.co/, we created a website with content, photos of the production process and a promotional film. Our task was to show the company's long history on the one hand, and modernity and professionalism on the other. Therefore, together with the client, we decided on a minimalistic graphic design that does not detract from the implementation. The next step was the implementation of video and photos showing the production process and the machine park of the company.

GDAŃSKI ARCHIPELAG KULTURY - WEBSITE

For GAK we've created a website which main task was to integrate and easier search of events taking place in 10 branches of this institution.

TABANDA - WEBSITE

Tabanda consists of three designers: Malgosia Malinowska, Filip Ludka and Tomek Kempa. They are architects who have always been fascinated by furniture design and utilitarian objects design.

They pay a lot of attention to a conceptual work and brainstorming, hence their products are finished right down to the last detail. They get their satisfaction from creating designs that are usefull and purposful yet spiced with a pinch of irony and humor. They are inspired by nature.

For Tabanda we have prepared a website and shop based on Drupal - advanced CMS system with e-commerce solutions.

FETA - WEBSITE

Website based on CMS Drupal.

 

For International street and open-air theaters festival – FETA, we have made a new website. Graphic design alludes strongly to the character of the festival however, it changed color and theme every year, which gives the impression of a completely new site, although preserved on the same mechanism. Website is easy to use, therefore, it only contains as much information as is necessary, and most pages do not require scrolling.
One of the interesting features is the ability to add files and photos by customers of the festival, which gives them the opportunity to build the history of the festival. The site was created in accordance with the principles of responsive web design, the portal is also available on mobile devices.

THEATRE WYBRZEZE - WEBSITE

Website for The Wybrzeze Theatre in Gdansk, Poland.

IN 2012 WE WERE ASKED TO REDESIGN AND REBUILD THE WEBSITE
The most important task was to change the base technology from Flash to HTML and improve usability.

Simplified and rebuilt usability from previous version of website gives visitor much more clear info about upcoming events, times of shows, information about theatre and became easier to navigate through the site.

Main task was to create mobile version for all types of OS and portable devices.

Reworked statistics and information about views of website, length of visits and conversion (ticket booking system).

Designed by enlive.pl

Online since April 2013

STU Theater

We have designed and implemented a website for the STU Theater in Krakow.

The STU Theater was founded in 1966 by Krzysztof Jasiński, who directs it to the present. This is a sensation on the Polish theater map. The initiative of a group of Cracow students gathered around Jasinski, who decided to go out with their theatrical activity outside the PWST, shaped one of the most important theater spots in Krakow. In its long history, the theater underwent many transformations necessary for its survival, and it faced many challenges posed by the changing economic, political and social reality.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The platform has processed thousands of orders in the past two years, which speaks to its success. Qunabu Interactive stays true to the timelines they provide and are of great help during emergency situations. Their communication and quality are brilliant, though they should hire more resources.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of a food delivery website in Poland that targets schools. I started the business over two years ago with the idea of providing hot and home-cooked meals to students because schools only offered sandwiches and other simple things.

With our solution, students have several restaurants to choose from, and they can order in advance. This is something new compared to the usual junk food found in their schools.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Qunabu Interactive?

I wanted to work with someone that understood small businesses but also had experience with large ones. I was serious about my project, and wanted to give the work to people that could react in an hour’s time and willing to work on weekends.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Qunabu Interactive created everything; I only gave them an idea and some sketches for the website. The project took around two months to complete, and it included an entire system for placing orders and sending the information to the restaurants in PDF form. It’s quite a complicated process, and everything needed to be built from scratch.

The first phase was to create a responsive website, given that 90% of customers would be accessing it on mobile devices. Six months ago, I got a serious investor, so we began building a mobile app. We’re planning on updating things and adding new features with Qunabu Interactive.

What is the team composition?

They assigned three people for the initial development, one of whom was Mateusz (Founder, Qunabu Interactive). I believe there have been 4–5 people working for me in total, including designers and developers. I’m currently working with a full-time resource.

How did you come to work with Qunabu Interactive?

I wanted to give my work to an experienced team that could also provide maintenance services. A friend told me that Qunabu Interactive was working with large companies in Poland, so I decided to hire them.

How much have you invested with them?

The initial cost was $12,000–$13,000. I paid another $2,000 for a prepaid module for the app. We’ll be investing another $10,000 in the next two months.

What is the status of this engagement?

I started working with Qunabu in May 2016. The collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have around 5,000 customers and we’ve received around 18,000 orders in the last two years.

How did Qunabu Interactive perform from a project management standpoint?

My investor suggested switching our provider for website work, but I told him that even though Qunabu Interactive may give longer estimates than other companies, their delivery is fine. Other companies will promise to deliver in one or two weeks, but they never do. I prefer to work with someone who gives me realistic timelines. If Mateusz tells me that something will take two weeks, it will.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We had a crisis with our database about a year ago. Qunabu sorted it out and now everything works properly.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They should hire more people because there aren’t enough resources to handle tasks faster at times. When I told them that I needed the work done quicker, Mateusz assigned another person to our project. Overall, they do a good job and respond adequately to suggestions.

Feedback summary: 

The upgraded website boasts increased visitors and less complaints as it not loads quickly and displays photos beautifully. Qunabu Interactive stands out by communicating efficiently and delivering on time, which leads to issue-free work and a partnership that feels like a friendship.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a public relations manager at Teatr Wybrzeze, the biggest theatre in northern Poland. I’m responsible for contacts with the media as well as managing websites and social media accounts.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Qunabu Interactive?

We had a very heavy website that was made using Flash technology. While it was very beautiful, the company that built it didn’t tell us that it would be so rough to use. It took a whole minute to load and cause a lot of problems for users. We wanted to have a more user-friendly and equally beautiful website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They redeveloped our site to make it user-friendly, and also created a mobile version of it. The most important thing in theatre is the news spectacles, so the website was based on photographs with information about spectacles. It’s a normal theatre site, but it’s very aesthetic, light, and fast. We continue to work together on updating the site as well as maintenance.

What is the team composition?

I work with their project manager and their CTO/CEO.

How did you come to work with Qunabu Interactive?

We were looking for an affordable and ethical vendor. We asked a few companies for their proposals, and Qunabu Interactive’s was the best. They had a great price and quality. Additionally, our situation was urgent, and they were able to address it fast.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $20,000 on their services so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2012 and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re analyzing the website all the time, and we’ve received many more users. People aren’t complaining and they did in the past because it’s now fast and presents photos nicely. I’m very satisfied with the collaboration.

How did Qunabu Interactive perform from a project management standpoint?

We didn’t have any problems. They delivered and communicated quickly.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re professional and pleasant, so you don’t get the feeling like you’re talking with robots. Also, the relationship isn’t as strict and formal but rather feels like you’re working with friends.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. We’re really satisfied.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Do your research and look at their past projects to make sure you like their aesthetic. If it fits someone’s project, they should do it.

Feedback summary: 

Qunabu’s quality work has led to an ongoing relationship. Their willingness to meet in-person has led to effective communication and deliverables that fulfill project requirements. Although they need to manage their turnover rate, they have an impressive understanding of the software industry.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the Digital Marketing Director at a software production company. We develop solutions for government, military, and banking clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Qunabu?

We produce some very large pieces of software that aren't very user-friendly, so we needed some innovative, simple, and attractive landing pages.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Even though I prefer WordPress, because it’s very user-friendly, they use a SilverStripe CMS because it’s a lighter and more secure system. They’ve also leveraged some great graphics and software solutions for us.

They continue to provide maintenance work, and I’ve given them some new website development projects as well. They’ve also produced some motion-graphic elements and animations for our websites.

What is the team composition?

We have a project manager from their side, and they outsource their coding work.

How did you come to work with Qunabu?

I was referred to them by a friend. I found out that they had an office in the city I was working in, so I went to meet them in person. I then checked online for every project they’d done.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around 100,000 Polish zloty ($25,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since February 2014.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve never heard any complaints about the look of the websites, and we’re satisfied with they’ve done for us.

How did Qunabu perform from a project management standpoint?

It was important to me that they were close by for discussions, since Skype isn’t always the best way to explain a problem. I know that they use outsourced coders, so task tracking platforms, like Redmine, are the best way for me to discuss my requirements. I can’t say anything bad about them in this regard. They’re fast and they respond promptly.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re nearby and they’re fast.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their graphic design resource has changed too often in my opinion. I’ve needed to work with the same person in order to produce results similar to those of past projects. They should focus on maintaining more stability.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

They understand our business quite well, and they have a grasp on the software sector. I would recommend them very much in this sense. I’m not sure about other areas, as I haven’t collaborated with them on cultural or government projects, but I feel that they get us.

Inquiries are already coming in one week after the site went live. Qunabu fostered a collaborative environment focused on soliciting feedback based on their choice of communication channels. They also provided personal customer service, which quickly produced a trusting, respectful partnership.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the Directory Manager for MSL Interiors, a commercial furniture provider in Manchester, U.K. We mostly deal with small-to-medium size companies, offering a full portfolio of furniture from reception areas to boardrooms, including everything for the office.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Qunabu Interactive?

Our existing website had been built in 2012, and we were looking to refresh it. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They rebuilt our website from the design specifications we wanted, using the SilverStripe CMS. I sent a brief structure of the site to Qunabu, asking for a hybrid site that could be used for commercial sales and as a showroom. Through our discussions with their founder though, we changed our minds, deciding not to go down the e-commerce route and just stick with showcasing. We’re more of a consultative business, rather than selling directly through our website. Our products require a bit more specification than pressing a couple of buttons and buying an item. They started by putting a framework and wireframes together, and the project really gathered momentum when we went to visit them in Gdansk. That was brilliant, as it’s always good to put a face to a name. It provides an extra bit of confidence.

What is the team composition?

We primarily interacted with their founder and a project manager. We also worked with a designer from their team in the early days though.

How did you come to work with Qunabu Interactive?

The company who had built our existing website, which we did like, quoted us a price that we didn’t feel their work warranted, so we decided to look for another vendor. We came across Qunabu through one of the Polish manufacturers whose products we were considering. We really liked their website, and saw that Qunabu was attributed at the bottom of it. We work with a lot of Polish companies, and we were comfortable with those collaborations. Our principal concern was whether they spoke English, but, once their founder responded to our email, I rang him up and got on very well. His English is excellent, as was that of their project manager.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent less than £5,000

What is the status of this engagement?

They formally started working on the site in November 2017. The project was wrapped up in March 2018, and the site launched last week.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I always ask people how they’ve found their experience on the site, and I’ve not had any negative feedback at all. It’s all been positive. The people we’ve shown it to before launching told us that it’s clean and crisp—exactly what we wanted it to be. The scope changed a bit, they were fair about it. I’m pleased with the results, and I’ve enjoyed working with them. As a consequence of their work, we’ve saved a lot of money.

I can’t provide any tangible metrics at the moment. We’ve only recently gotten the Google Analytics package up-and-running. At the moment though, we had our first 3 contact forms filled out, all today. We had a couple of phone calls yesterday, as well. It was a great experience, and the results are coming through now. Inquiries are coming in rather nicely, even though we launched less than a week ago.

How did Qunabu Interactive perform from a project management standpoint?

The more creative people were using Slack to ask for feedback from us around particular aspects of the project—how we want something to be portrayed, and what the structure of the website should be. I am not a very technical person. I am the kind of person that likes to pick the phone up or use email, so I did find the Slack element to be a bit awkward for me, personally. This is why it was important to visit them in person. They also delegated the work, so we didn’t need to know who the team members were. The work simply got done. They were responsive to all our questions.

I didn’t put them under any pressure to deliver the website by a specific date. It was a matter of getting it done as quickly as we could, but without rushing the work. It had to be right. There are only 2 of us within our company which can make working out business requirements difficult. Any timeline issues were a consequence of our failures. I can’t think of a particular moment in time, where I was impatient and asking for something. They’ve always been responsive and timely.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve found them to be personable, responsive, reactive, and able to do what they said they would do. A lot of the companies I’ve worked with in the past lacked a personal touch, and this project was diffused to other people as well, but there was no need for me to speak to those resources. The delivery of it was great, and it didn’t make me feel ignorant. Some technical people can blind you with science, but they were patient enough to be tolerant of my ignorance. Very often in business, the human element is overlooked, but it’s absolutely crucial in developing a website—understanding people and the nuances. We also thought that there would be a language barrier, but there wasn’t anything like that.

We identified functionalities that needed amending after the site was finished and they addressed and sorted those things out within the same day. It was a completely different experience to those that I’ve had with the three other websites I’ve built in the past. It was much more hands-on and reassuring.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I would struggle to criticize them from a practical perspective.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

The big question market in website development is whether the people being approached have the capability of delivering, and—particularly in this case, given that they were a Polish outfit—are going to understand what we want? Very often, even when working with a native English person, the interpretation of what we want isn’t necessarily correct. I was completely reassured by Qunabu though. Admittedly, we were very specific, but they delivered exactly what we wanted. If the client has a clear understanding of what they want, and they can relay that, Qunabu will be very good at interpreting that and delivering.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Metrics are hard to come by, but many of their projects are going live soon, and our clients like them. Plus, Qunabu is able to quickly fix any bugs we find.

How did perform from a project management standpoint?

Qunabu is very responsive and communicates well with Slack and email. They always try their hardest to meet the deadlines we impose and communicate when it is unlikely to meet a certain deadline.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are very flexible and willing to adapt, making their work useful and relevant to our business.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I am genuinely satisfied with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It’s good to have wiggle room with the budget and paying scale with third-party agencies because there are always many changes in expectations in terms of delivery. If you can be flexible, it’ll take a lot of the pain away from the process.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Panoramic Imaging, a company that develops websites, mainly in the travel sector. We’re also specialists in 360-degree imagery and video.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Qunabu Interactive?

For over twenty years, we’ve managed the web development and technology for a number of travel clients. We’re knowledgeable in the backend and hard programming, but we’re not well-equipped for the frontend, especially responsive design. A few of our larger clients wanted responsive sites, so we needed a partner to help us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We give Qunabu designs, and they turn them into responsive HTML page templates. We then integrate those templates back into the content management systems for our clients, so they can have responsive and mobile-friendly sites.

Qunabu actually began working on two projects at once. The initial bulk of the page templates were for a bigger project that has now been passed on to our internal team. We work with Qunabu and our clients to find errors, make changes, and develop the best possible product.

What is the team composition?

Our main point of contact is the founder. If we have any issues, we talk to him. Qunabu also provides a project manager who issues invoices and takes care of the administrative tasks. We have a few developers assigned to our team, but I don’t interact with them directly.

When we began looking at partners, we considered a U.K. agency, but they were too expensive. We’d worked with an Indian team before, but it didn’t go well. I talked to some colleagues who recommended a few Eastern European firms, so I began doing research. I found three companies that I visited with in person, including Qunabu. Their prices were competitive, they were easy to communicate with, and they complemented our team, so we hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between £6,000–£8,000 ($8,428­–$11,237 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in August 2017, and the work is ongoing. We’re currently in the integration phase.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our clients seem pleased with Qunabu’s work. If we have any additional digital work, we’ll give it to them.

How did Qunabu Interactive perform from a project management standpoint?

We started by communicating via email and Skype, but as things began to pick up, we switched over to Qunabu’s project management tool, Redmine. It worked so well that we actually implemented it in-house, too. Qunabu has talked about using Slack in the future.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re responsive, quickly solving any issues that we flag as urgent. They deliver on time, and their communication is good. The entire team is friendly and easy to work with. Their workflow is incredibly transparent; we can easily see how their hours and efforts are spent.

Are there any areas they could improve?

When we first started, their developers would send pages to me right after the first draft, even though they didn’t match the design specs. After talking to Qunabu’s founder, he now does the initial round of testing to make sure the designs are met, which has reduced the number of issues I’ve had to deal with.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

We provided incredibly in-depth initial designs; we left little to their interpretation. A good set of specs improves communication and makes things move much quicker. If you leave things open and vague, problems can creep in. That’s for all developers, not just Qunabu.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Beyond being technically savvy, the Qunabu team delivers above and beyond project expectations. Their technical expertise, responsiveness, and willingness to share information are key assets. Consequently, they continue to be engaged for additional projects.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work for an agency that does everything from PR, media, communications, advertising, digital, social, and content creation.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Qunabu Interactive?

They’re specialists in SilverStripe, which is the CMS we use for our projects. We were interested in them as a potential partner since it’s a relatively niche technology.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Initially we hired Qunabu to do a small website for a client. They did a good job in terms of delivery, so the engagement continued from there. They have their own set of modules that align with the SilverStripe platform, so it's easy for them to utilize and build on existing modules. They're also good about sharing their code. They help on a lot of different features that are quite complex.

What is the team composition?

We have an assigned project manager that runs the day-to-day. We don’t interact much with the founder, but he gets involved if needed. We also have direct contact with the front- and backend developers.

How did you come to work with Qunabu Interactive?

They reached out to us via email and mentioned their work in SilverStripe, which was the key selling point. They were also quick to reply.

How much have you invested with them?

Historically, we’ve spent between £15,000–£20,000 ($21,074–$28,099 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together around three years ago. Qunabu continues helping us with client projects on a daily basis.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

From the first engagement, they over-delivered against the stated deliverables. Their frontend features—how things work and look—were much better than expected. It’s an ongoing relationship because we continue to get the feeling they over-deliver in terms of features on every project.

How did Qunabu Interactive perform from a project management standpoint?

The project manager is a great resource, but we can also reach out directly to the developers if we need to get a quick answer on why something isn’t working. We communicate using Slack and their suite of project management tools. They work with Redmine and they also use GitLab for source control. If the client has a preference for a certain technology, Qunabu is totally flexible and capable of using other tools such as Jira.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The knowledge-sharing element of the relationship is really great; they're teaching us a lot. They're willing to tell us what they use, how they use it, and how we can use it in our organization. We've adopted several technologies they use, such as GitLab.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing negative springs to mind.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Put them on a retainer. They're very good and highly-skilled, but they're often busy on other projects so it might be quite difficult to book them. If you don’t schedule them in advance, you may be languishing in the queue.
