How did you select this vendor?
We had worked with Sidnet before, as their team was responsible for creating the ‘Sarcoma’ Association website. As a result, we had seen first-hand that Sidnet was reliable and trustworthy.
Yet, our final choice was primarily determined by the strong commitment of Sidnet to supporting charity. Each month, they provide financial support to people in need as part of the #SidnetDonations action.
The further development of our association and the activities we conduct would not be possible without the involvement and expertise of Sidnet specialists. These include all of our activities dedicated to supporting patients and the promotion of preventive healthcare practices.
Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.
It took Sidnet just 16 weeks to build the backend and frontend of a responsive PHP-based website. They adapted the CRM and CMS to the specific needs of a charity run registration platform.
The website itself is so convenient to use that we already update the content and photos available there largely on our own. It allows us to organise the next editions of the event and manage participant data without the help of the programmers.
The Sidnet team implemented all of the technological solutions that we expected. This included an integrated PayU payment system and an automatic generation of the starting cards containing participants' data.
In addition to this, they also introduced basic accessibility improvements for participants with disabilities, such as a special version of the website with a contrasting colour scheme.
But Sidnet specialises in much more than just technical solutions. This year, their marketing department helped us determine the strengths of the Oncorun event and designed some of the website's content.
In addition to this, they improved User Experience (UX) of the registration process.The project is ongoing and the Sidnet developers still maintain our website.
Since 2017, they have helped us update the website’s technical solutions and implement further improvements before each edition of the event. We usually work remotely, but the guidelines regarding these changes are established during meetings held at their office in Warsaw.
What was the team composition?
Up to five people from Sidnet are involved in the project at all times. These include the lead developer, programmers, graphic designers and quality assurance personnel. The composition of this team changes based on our needs at the time.We communicate with the team via the lead developer, a person who always has extensive communication competencies and who is aware of our relatively basic IT knowledge.
