What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
They’re really great at providing fast results and have helped us upload over 450 local businesses in our database within a couple of months. Additionally, they’ve also added 1,000 one-time events. They give us a lot of really good ideas for the UX as well. We have really good feedback from the companies that are interested in advertising with us. So far, we haven’t had any issues loading calendars—it’s a really easy flow.
The people or businesses that have events that really don't have their own marketing ad found out that we're really good at creating ads for them really fast. It's a cute and nice way of marketing for those little companies on our website.
How did Solar Digital perform from a project management standpoint?
We have a project manager assigned to us; we’ve interacted through Trello and also have a really good management tool in pace. They use Agile methodologies and are really good at managing tasks through the use of a project management board, which makes it really convenient to see the progress of the project.
So far, we haven't had any communication issues. They consistently have a project manager in another country as well in order to be available 24/7 to keep up with global growth. Overall, I’m really pleased with the results of their work.
What did you find most impressive about them?
One of their strengths is their UI/UX expertise. I live in the U.S. but I really like the western Europeans’ fresh look of things—they have new ideas that I’ve never seen here. Solar Digital is a little different and can bring these fresh and cool ideas. Their work speed is also really impressive.
Are there any areas they could improve?
I can’t think of anything. They just need to continue growing and keep up the good work.
Do you have any advice for potential clients of Solar Digital?
Clients should definitely give them a chance and provide a good set of requirements for what they need in a consolidated manner, making sure to leave room for them to put in their input as well because they have a lot of good ideas and information. The team is really exceptionally well put together and talented, with an out-of-the-box approach that is very helpful.
