I wanted to have the best photography services website in my city.

Several people recommended them to me.

They designed and developed a website on which I could display samples of my photography work including corporate and personal photoshoots, newborn photo sessions, family photo shoots, and event photography. They also created a logo for me.

The number of users on my site increased four times over, while their average session length grew by nearly 50%. Customers report being satisfied with my site and logo, and internally, it’s easy for my copywriters to post blogs. The site is impressively fast.

Feedback summary: 

Within a month, the app garnered thousands of downloads and overwhelmingly positive reviews. S Media Link’s team clearly conveyed technical information and offered reasonable rates. However, they can still improve their QA process.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder of a sports video analysis company called Mirror Vision. We launched a mobile application in late 2018.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire S Media Link LLC?

We hired S Media Link to develop our mobile app.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to launch a reliable product into the App Store.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We chose S Media Link because they promised they could do the build within our budget. Previously, we’ve asked other agencies to build prototypes, but they could not reduce the latency to where we needed it to be. Plus, most local developers did not fit our budget.

Describe the project in detail.

S Media Link provided full-scale development services, from a proof of concept to our launch. Based on our UI, they developed an app that can send live video between two iOS devices with a very low latency, which is difficult due to limited bandwidth. The app can also record and share this video. S Media Link now helps us with all updates.

What was the team composition?

S Media Link assigned a project manager and two developers to our project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

S Media Link did a great job. We launched our application after roughly 10 months of working together. So far, the app has been extremely well-received, with thousands of downloads in the first month. There are some bugs, but we worked together to solve them.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We had multiple managers, making communication and understanding the scope somewhat difficult. Fortunately, S Media Link helped us overcome these issues. Overall, everything was great.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their ability to communicate with us on a nontechnical level was quite helpful.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I would’ve liked to have been informed about some metadata issues ahead of time, especially since they affected our launch to the App Store. Also, some bugs are proving difficult to solve, perhaps due to not testing the application well enough.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The app has not yet been launched, but the direct client has expressed satisfaction over the app's design and functionality. Although there was a minor issue with communication, S Media Link was transparent in dealing with their transactions. They were able to deliver exactly on time.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Token Solutions offers app and marketing solutions for different small businesses, mainly in Australia. I use S Media Link to turn a client's idea into reality.

What is your position?

I am a cofounder and business development manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with S Media Link?

I was trying to lower our cost of production. In Australia, it's hard to find cost-efficient developers that will work for you on a contract basis. I was trying to avoid hiring a full team and having to pay wages to each individual developer who would be involved. I wanted developers that I could access when I needed the resources for specific projects.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

S Media Link has front-end developers on staff for both iOS and Android work, as well as a UX/UI [user experience/user interface] designer. They handle front-end development and design work for mobile applications that my clients are working on. We give them criteria for the wireframes, then the UX designer comes up with something to give to me. Once I approve the design, it is passed to the developers to code it into the app.

How did you come to work with S Media Link?

I came across S Media Link through Upwork, and I've worked with them before I started my business.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

We have spent between $10,000 and $50,000 at the moment. Our agreement will grow as contracts continue to come in.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started collaborating full time in November 2015. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

There are no statistics now because we haven't launched the app yet. I have received informal feedback from my direct client, and he is happy with how the app has been built and with its functionality.

How did S Media Link perform from a project management standpoint?

The S Media Link team works in a unique way. I would prefer to get in touch with the developer directly, but there is a bit of a language barrier there. Their team includes an account manager that handles all of the contract dealings, and a project manager that handles all communication with the developers.

Although the process feels tedious sometimes, it works well because you can spend an extended amount of time with the project manager to discuss certain features and design aspects while the developers continue to work in the background. I haven't had much of a problem dealing with any of the personnel. It's been very easy to get in contact with them whenever I'd like to have a meeting.

What distinguishes S Media Link from other providers?

The great thing about S Media Link is that they are very clear about what they can deliver and what expectations you should have of them. They were able to tell me exactly how much time the project was going to take and when they would be able to deliver a product. They have delivered everything exactly on time, which is good. They also come to me if they feel like they're not getting enough work. They keep us on track and we keep them on track, which I find to be very helpful.

Is there anything S Media Link could have improved or done differently?

I wish they had 24-hour customer support, but that's asking too much on my side. They're not the biggest operation, and the time difference is a bit of a factor for us. Other than having to work at awkward times on occasion, they're great to work with.
