Key clients: 

 

 

Transport for London: Cookies Management

We have worked with Transport for London (TfL) to build, manage and support a bespoke Cookie Consent Management Tool.

SoBold has been an authorised Reseller of Cookiebot since the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into place on 24 May 2018. Cookiebot’s tool consists of three main features: cookie consent, cookie monitoring and cookie control and SoBold work with their clients helping

them manage, build and integrate these solutions onto their websites. 

SoBold now offer Cookie Consent Management for clients across numerous different industries.

Clanwilliam Group: Website Design and Development

Clanwilliam Group (CWG) is an expanding family of businesses with a combined YOY revenue of over €50m is a direct result of their unique mergers and acquisitions (M&A) philosophy and thriving entrepreneurial spirit.

Our solution involved the redesigning of the company’s website to more accurately and appealingly reflect the brand’s global identity. The design process was an iterative one whereby

the website evolved dynamically over time. 

Collaboration between SoBold and Clanwilliam Group facilitated the use of continuous improvement whereby comments could be made and acted upon with a short turnaround. CWG gave clear recommendations to SoBold about what they required and SoBold acted upon this to deliver fully responsive website designs. 

Our developers got to work on bringing these static designs to life. They worked tirelessly to build the website, implementing functionality with an intuitive interface to allow CWG’s team to be able to make changes in-house quickly after the website had been built.

As our developers were working on the website, SoBold gave CWG access to the staging site to see live changes take place. More feedback was given and implemented upon to ensure CWG were delighted with the end product of their website. The website demonstrates CWG’s scale across the globe, showcases their current portfolio businesses and highlights the benefits of joining CWG and was built over a period of three months.

 

Etoro: Website Development

Etoro is a social trading and multi asset brokerage company.

Coyote Software: Website Development

We worked with Coyote Software to help them develop their new website.

The previous Coyote Software website was built on an Umbraco CMS system which restricted their ability to make and implement changes in-house.

Coyote Software designed their website in-house and we were given access to their InVision projects to start planning our development process. The site was to be built within 4

weeks and we mapped out the project on Teamwork.

The development process began with us building out the header and footers across all pages. We then moved onto developing the custom templates so that all of the content could fit in seamlessly and match up with the designs.

We had weekly meetings with Coyote to discuss progress and ascertain any slight tweaks and changes away from the design to ensure everything translated perfectly onto the web.

Once the site was built, we added in appropriate animations across different elements of the site and ensured all previous URL’s were 301 redirected to their new URLs. In the migration process, we mapped out all of the page titles and descriptions to help prevent any ranking losses.

The site was launched within the 4 week deadline and the client is delighted with how easy it is to make changes to their new site!

UK Proptech Association: Website Development

The UK Proptech Association expressed the need for their website to be redeveloped.

The UK PropTech Association is a not-for-profit membership organisation to drive the digital transformation agenda within the property industry by promoting engagement between PropTech and Property businesses.

The UK PropTech Association designed their new site on inVision and SoBold were tasked with bringing

this new site to life! Animations were incorporated in the build stage and both parties collaborated, to ensure that all the sufficient assets were provided.

The deadline for the launch was relatively tight, so SoBold and The UK Proptech Association agreed to roll out the development in several releases to ensure that all deadlines and expectations were met.

The phases were rolled out from the staging site and SoBold ensured all of the links were redirected accordingly from the old site to ensure no Google visibility was impacted.

The new member area of the website allows members to sign up to new accounts and personalise their profile on site.

SoBold has since partnered with The UK Proptech Association and are now a partner on their member scheme which will involve sponsorship of events and support to their community.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a Personal Training company who want to combine an evidence based, customer drive experience whilst celebrating a personable and fun approach to the journey.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire SoBold?

We chose to work with SoBold in order to design, develop and launch our company website.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed a website that effectively delivered a vibrant, easy to navigate website that allowed us to communicate to our audience that we were professional and committed to our practice, but also personable and approachable.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were recommended them by a client who had a great deal of success and satisfaction in not only the end result but the collaborative nature of the project.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

After an initial brief of what Common Purpose stood for, SoBold were brilliant in keeping us involved in the project enough that we could have a hand in directing the end result but never too much that we felt we were doing the leg work our selves!

What was the team composition?

They were roughly a team of 10-12 but we had a streamlined channel of communications which saw us in dialogue with the same 2-3 people.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our website has been launched and within days of making current/past clients and leads aware of its launch, we were able to generate new customers for the business whose lifetime value already outweighs the investment we made.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

In a day an age of apps, plugins, platforms, it was refreshingly well managed by simply communicating via Gmail with the website being built on WordPress.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The ease of communication and speed of execution were impressive. They had a low turn around time in tasks requested.

Are there any areas for improvement?

As far as I'm aware, no.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CEO of Cover Ninja; a software platform utilised in the fitness industry that fixes the group exercise class cover problem.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire SoBold?

Cover Ninja hired SoBold to build and then maintain their marketing website. This has been taken through many stages from pre incorporation holding page, to pre-launch of the product now all the way through to purchasing the product.

What were your goals for this project?

Cover Ninja required a marketing website that looked fresh with animations, explained (without too much copy) all the amazing features contained within our platform and ultimately allowed our users to purchase the product. We required the site to be built in Wordpress as we wanted to be able to make easy edits etc.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We received quotes from 2 other suppliers. We were impressed with SoBold's approach to the project and quote proposal. We felt confident during the initial meetings that the project would be built within the desired timelines and within the agreed budget.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Cover Ninja's creative director designed the initial website and the specific copy was provided by the Commercial Director. SoBold delivered a website in line with the designs and at times even stepped in providing insight and feedback on the designs to make the website even better for its visitors. after the initial build SoBold then took over the design element of the website too as further features have been added and built etc.

What was the team composition?

Working with SoBold was easy. One person was very much our account manager. He dealt with the meetings, quotes and main communications etc. There were 2 other people that we were introduced to when visiting the office that were 'doing' the work, but we didn't have direct communication with them. It was incredibly easy working with one person for the entire project length.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The concept of Cover Ninja is first to market within the fitness industry and the website needed to inject this fresh, disruptive approach and it does. Website visitor stats are impressive.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

SoBold project management style is efficient and transparent. It was incredibly easy working with SoBold. I never at any point of the process felt 'over sold' to and the delivery exceeded my expectations. Cover Ninja communicated with SoBold in person (yes face to face meetings can still exist!), via email and slack. Designs were displayed in Invision and delivered in Zeplin.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

SoBold were clear from the outset. Their timelines are realistic, and I felt confident at every stage of the project. Our account manager responded to our needs and questions instantly. We felt 'managed' which put us at ease. SoBold are also a fun agency. It was great to meet them face to face and build a rapport. I am sure we are one of their many clients, but we were always made to feel like their only client.

Are there any areas for improvement?

As it stands, I cannot see any areas of improvement for SoBold. Of course, I would always like a smaller invoice :) but I don't know any CEO who doesn't want that!!! I can't recommend SoBold enough. I will certainly be using them moving forward.

We needed to create a marketing website that would allow us to clearly show our platforms offering. This involved ensuring the customer understood how it worked, the benefits and why they should use the app.

What were your goals for this project?

To increase sign ups and reduce drop offs

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

SoBold was recommended to us, we were told how they had the expertise and know how to deliver on time and above expectations. From their it was a quick call to set up a meeting

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We had a design meeting in which we outlined how the website would work and how we could funnel customers to the correct areas, the visual layout would be key in determining the success of the project.

Once this was completed, work started on the building the necessary building blocks, page by page, step by step. We would have iterative releases to test and get a feel of how a user would interact. This would allow changes to be made along the project rather than big changes at the end. It also mean't our schedule date of completion was kept to and we even had time spare!

What was the team composition?

For our project we had a team of 4, 1 x design, 2 x development and project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We saw an increase in conversions almost instantly and continue to do so. The way the site has been set up allows us to continually update and keep it fresh.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We were in constant contact with every member of the team assigned to our project. This meant we could communicate not just to the project manager but to the developers and design team exactly what we were thinking.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The personnel, the quality of work, the scheduling and cooperation to help you achieve exactly what you were after. It was a working collaboration, which was something I hadn't experienced before.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Not that I can think of. We had a very positive experience and would recommend SoBold to anyone

They built and developed a new WordPress website. They also created new brand guidelines for us that will help to ensure brand consistency across all of our customer touchpoints.

What was the team composition?

We had a single point of contact who managed the SoBold team and resources directly. This was brilliant for us as it meant we only had to explain and provide feedback to a single person.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The results of this project have exceeded even my most optimistic expectations. We have created a new online presence that really reflects what we do as a company and the whole experience was easy and enjoyable. Having been involved in many similar projects in the past I can say that this was the most straightforward one and the team at SoBold simply get what we are trying to do and make it happen for us.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

It was excellent - all deadlines were met and our expectations were well managed. Communication was straightforward and any requests we made were always answered instantly and effectively. I'm based in Dublin while the SoBold team are in London and even with this the project management and communication was really exemplary.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Nothing is to much trouble for them. Any and every change we had was turned around very quickly and without any problem. They are always ready, willing and able to help - no matter what. It is a pleasure to work with them and they constantly exceed our expectations. They are different to any other vendor I've worked with in terms of how quickly they respond to our requests. They always understand our briefs and deliver to an impeccably high standard.

Honestly I can't think of any - it was the smoothest website development and build that I have ever worked on.
