The Review
Feedback summary: 

Thanks to RAZUR’s efforts, the updated app now runs faster and has attracted previous users who had stopped using it. The team was professional throughout the project.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the co-founder and VP of Barcade, a combination bar and arcade with a focus on classic video games and American craft beer. We have multiple locations in New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Connecticut. I oversee our advertising and marketing as well as our website maintenance.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire RAZUR?

We had an old mobile app that hadn’t been updated in four years. As such, we needed resources to update its software for iOS and Android.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted our app to the best of its potential within our current technical parameters. This would extend its lifespan while we prepared for a total redesign in the future. That way, we wouldn’t have to rush the creative development for the new version of the app.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found them online. We also considered their geographic location.

Describe the project in detail.

We reviewed the app with them, discussing our immediate needs and potential improvements. They then updated the app according to our requirements. We wanted to add two additional Barcade locations to the app at a later date, so they set that up for us. They also refined some of the functionalities. Because the backend needed more work than we had anticipated, we decided to set aside some of our bigger ideas for future development.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a project manager and a developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app runs faster, now, and I believe we’ve regained a few users that we’d previously lost due to a lack of updates to the app.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They communicated well, and I had access to their notes through Trello.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They’re professional and current.

Feedback summary: 

Professional, attractive, and easy to use, the finished website more than exceeded expectations and received a lot of positive feedback. They managed the project very effectively, never missing any deadlines, while always bringing a positive energy to the work.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We’re a custom cake studio servicing New York City. We’ve been in business for two years and I'm the owner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire RAZUR?

I needed help with rebranding and the creation of a new, more interactive website.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted to have a visually stunning website that showcased our brand and product.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I've known Chris (Founder, RAZUR) for many years and knew he was the perfect person for this job. He’s fantastic with communication, always pleasant, and professional. I was confident that he'd be able to organize my thoughts and vision while delivering on the practical application.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

They built me an entirely new website. It was a lot of work, and the scope included interactive elements and multimedia components.

What was the team composition?

They have an endless amount of resources to pull off whatever vision you may have. Working with the team was always easy and they were great about reminding me about approaching deadlines.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The newly designed website completely changed the energy of my brand and the way my clients see us. I now have a website I'm proud of and receive endless compliments for. It's easy for me to use and looks so much more professional.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project management team was very impressive—consistently professional and prompt. They never missed a deadline.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Working with them was an easy, pleasurable experience. I knew I was in very capable hands. They have an impressive amount of experience so I’m sure my project was easy for them, but it really left me speechless. Chris is so warm and friendly, and he has such a nice presence. Other companies I've met in the past are dry and so corporate it's like talking to a robot. It was nice to deal with a relatable human.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

No, I had a great experience from beginning to end. They even provide fantastic continual support.
