What was the scope of their involvement?
The initial project we worked with Radixweb on was building a real estate site that would offer a complete solution to people selling properties. Users could enter their details into forms, such as their address and characteristics of the property. That information would feed into templates for creating house signs.
This was in 2010, when video streaming wasn’t as functional, and we couldn’t easily upload high-resolution photos. Radixweb developed a full e-commerce website for creating signs from start to finish. Those could be A4 brochures, signs that would go on the fronts of cars, and large for-sale signs for putting in the front of a house. They built a whole solution. The website had a CMS where users could change content and create new templates.
I’ve used Radixweb for other projects since then. They handle projects from initiation to testing and improvements. They developed a health and safety site, onto which they implemented a Microsoft platform to allow users to edit documents on the site. Most recently, they developed my own website.
What is the team composition?
I’ve had four different project managers from them across five projects. Over time, I’ve dealt with 9–10 people from their company. They communicate brilliantly. We normally work through Skype, email, and phone.
How did you come to work with Radixweb?
I met a couple of their members at a trade show in Sydney, including their CEO and sales lead.
How much have you invested with them?
The first project cost around $25,000. A US company I was considering would’ve charged $80,000–$100,000 for the solution. The overall cost so far is around $45,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
My first project with them started in August 2010 and ran for around three months, and then they offered ongoing support. The second project was in 2011 for the health and safety site. They developed my own website in September or October 2019. It was done in about three weeks.
