In terms of results, could you share any statistics, metrics, or user feedback that would demonstrate the effectiveness of the work they’ve provided?
Generally speaking, the site has been outstanding. We’ve received great feedback from our sales team and brokers who have to use the site for content information. I think we’ve developed an industry-best website with the content alone. The information flow is fantastic. We're extremely pleased with it. Now, as far as results, a lot of factors go into it, but our Bistro brand has seen exponential growth. Since July, which is the beginning of our fiscal year, we’ve had about 26 percent growth, which is absolutely outstanding. Certainly, one of the pieces of that was the sales tools, which included in the Bistro website.
When working with Roundedcube, is there anything you would consider unique or special about them compared to other vendors you’ve worked with in the past?
This was a unique project for me, and I haven’t worked extensively with other vendors, so I really can’t compare them to others, per se. But, I will say I was very pleased with the initiative, and their time and dedication to it.
In retrospect, are there areas that you think they could improve upon, or are there things you'd do differently as the client before approaching this type of project?
Right now, one of the things that we’re looking at is search engine optimization, and there are things that they’ve identified to help with the search engine optimization that we probably could have addressed earlier. Now, we were under a tight timeline, or I’ve given them a tight timeline to develop and deliver the website, so it may not have worked. There’s always an opportunity to have that in the back of your mind and say if we would have done this a little bit differently, it would have helped with the overall optimization of the site. As a result, we are going back and making some revisions to the site to help get into search engines. From my perspective, I’m not sure if it’s a natural process or progression, or if that’s something they could have addressed upfront. Not a huge deal, but it’s just something we could all certainly improve on.
