What was the scope of their involvement?
Radity GmbH started by redesigning our website. They also considered how it could play a part in our broader strategy. Having finished the initial effort, they're currently in the process of a more extensive rebuilding. They also have consulted with us on related strategic points for our service offerings and plans for marketing and communications.
They came up with a design for the site themselves. Based on an analysis of what we had in place, they proactively gave us useful recommendations and laid a lot of groundwork to improve our processes.
As an association and nonprofit, we're not the most focused group, so we don't have the same resources and focus that other organizations might have. Their support in shaping our strategy was instrumental. They worked on the whole package, including the frontend and backend of our platform.
What is the team composition?
I interacted primarily with the founder, but I believe a team of about 3–4 people was also involved in the initial site revamp.
How did you come to work with Radity GmbH?
We frequently receive inquiries from nearshore and offshore vendors who approach us about working together. Not only is technology highly relevant, but we're also based in the high-value market of Switzerland.
Radity GmbH's primary differentiator was their ability to bridge nearshore capability with proactive involvement in our community. They specialize in our local market and are knowledgeable, well-connected, and informed. We connected a number of times, and they really stuck out from the competition.
How much have you invested with them?
They've offered us cost reductions because we're a nonprofit. The cost has been upwards of ₣25,000 Swiss francs (approximately $24,500 USD).
What is the status of this engagement?
Our engagement is still ongoing and has morphed into a larger version. We started working together last fall in September 2018. They finished up an initial project by the end of the year in December that focused on some modifications and fixes for our existing website. Now that they've finished up additional proposals for a new site, they have started the implementation.
