What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We had a pretty basic pitch deck to start and they made one that was way more appealing. It also allowed us to very easily win a spot on one of the crowd-funding venture capital sites.
How did Signifly perform from a project management standpoint?
We left the management in their hands. There were Zoom meetings once or twice a week to work through our sprints. We moved quickly, focusing on what we needed to accomplish for our company in the current timeframe. The whole project took around three weeks. We sent them everything we had, whether we thought it was relevant or not, within the first two days and they managed the project from there.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They would pretend to be us as we gave a presentation to an investor, telling our story our way. This was very good coaching for me, as they’re real storytellers, especially the project manager. To hear her present my company was amazing. She did excellently. That was the first highlight.
The second highlight was the speed with which everything got done. There were no broken promises; it was just: go, go, go. We arrived at the exact point we wanted. I got way more value than I ever expected and way more value for my dollar spent than I should have.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No, not really. After the fact, I had second thoughts on some things and they would implement them, even though the project was already over. They went above and beyond as far as I’m concerned. They’re the best consultants I’ve ever worked with.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
First, work with them. There’s huge value there. They have such a huge breadth of expertise, as well as a huge network, so they can handle whatever your next steps are. Their consulting fees may seem high at first but they’re definitely not. You’ll get way more than you expect for your money.
