Feedback summary: 

Solo Media Group's work exceeded the company's expectations. The client is absolutely pleased with the new site. What stood out the most is the 90% increase in site speed. Overall, the vendor provided exceptional communication.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the marketing operations manager a company that provides tax filing services for American's living abroad.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Solo Media Group, and what were your goals?

We hired Solo Media Group to overhaul our website. It was very dated and built on old framework, leading the website to be slow and clunky and we wanted Solo Media Group to essentially rebuild our entire site.

SOLUTION

How did you select Solo Media Group and what were the deciding factors?

We were recommended them by our SEO consultant and loved Johnathan's communication. That really helped because he breaks down what's needed in a way that's totally understandable (not just developer speak).

Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and technologies used.

The website overhaul was rebuilding our wordpress website on a new framework to bring up the speed of the website, incorporate new designs, and make the backend easier to make adjustments on.

How many people from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?

We mainly worked with Johnathan who has a team of developers he manages.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any measurable outcomes of the project or general feedback about the deliverables?

Johnathan and his team did an amazing job and exceeded our expectations! We are thrilled about our new website, and have seen 90% increase in site-speed as a result.

Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timelines.

Communication tools - email, SMG's support portal. They worked inside of our communication tool, Podio for a majority of the project. We also used Bugherd to identify any bugs on the website during launch.

What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?

Johnathan did an amazing job at communicating with us. We had a few snafu's with the project manager and Johnathan took back over and delivered on-time.

Are there any areas for improvement or something they could have done differently?

Nope- we love the SMG team. They are super quick at fixing bugs and implementing any changes that we ask them for.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They provided us with a very professional Wordpress online store. They provided us with very quick feedback, and resolutions on our initial issues. Solo Media Group also provided very strong communication lines to keep the project moving forward constantly.

What was the team composition?

The project had a team of numerous individuals. Johnathan took the lead and was our shepherd who lead us to the end of the project.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the IT Director. We are a manufacturer of hair, skin and body products made specifically for tweens.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Solo Media Group?

We hired Solo Media Group because we need an experienced and efficient developer group to help us migrate from a WooCommerce e-comm site platform to Shopify.

What were your goals for this project?

Our primary goal of this project was to have Solo develop a stable and integrated e-comm website on the Shopify platform that was mobile responsive and support complex coupon promotional elements and an integrated rewards program.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We posted this job on UpWork and Solo Media responded to the job posting. We vetted over 20 companies for this job and Solo was who we decided to go with because they had amazing reviews from previous customers and had vast experience in the development and platform that we were needing for this specific project.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We hired Solo Media Group to help us migrate our existing site from a WooCommerce e-comm engine framework to Shopify. They initially recreated a mirror of our existing website that was on Woo on Shopify and the help us by developing multiple custom functions on the Shopify framework to support or site and system needs to promotions and our rewards program. Then we decided to redesign our website before launching it on Shopify and Solo coded in an entirely new website front-end for our final launch.

What was the team composition?

Our main point of contact was with John at Solo but there were multiple resources involved on their end but I was not directly in contact with them through the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The overall impact that this project will have on our business will be shown more over time but the biggest obvious impact is this project resulted in a more stable website and online shopping experience for our customers.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project management was seamless and effective. John managed his team of resources perfectly and it was easy for me to add tasks and feedback to the project through the development process. We used Google Hangout calls to discuss progress and share our screens. Also John used and would share tasks lists via Google Docs to make it easy for me to see what was being worked on and what was completed.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The communication and ability to be flexible with ongoing project changes and shifts was what I found most impressive with Solo Media and John and his team.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No areas of improvement that I could think of from my end.

The quality that Solo Media Group delivered was always strong, and discussions for another collaboration are already underway. They were always available to fix bugs or make changes. The team ensured that all the functionalities met requirements.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a regenerative medicine company that distributes stem cell recruitment products throughout the country. This includes products from placental tissue and other regenerative products that cover medical specialties like wound care, orthopedics, podiatry, dental, cosmetic, and pain management. I am the CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Solo Media Group?

We wanted to create an online ordering platform that allowed our customers to easily access our products.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built and customized our online ordering platform in WordPress and WooCommerce. The platform required a lot of customizations for our complex invoicing process. They integrated a lot of that with our accounting and sales rep commission software. The backend allows us to provide certain customers with unique features, and the whole project encompassed a lot of elements.

What is the team composition?

We had one main point of contact.

How did you come to work with Solo Media Group?

Our marketing lead referred them to us. He felt they'd be a great fit.

How much have you invested with them?

We invested around $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project started in August 2019 and was completed in mid-October. We added a few additional features after that.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We already had a large customer base, and we had to onboard those existing customers onto the new portal right after we built it. It was a complex process, and they did very well. They provided great quality work, and we already have another project in mind for them. We'll start production on that soon. The platform is an absolute game-changer for us, and we're much more efficient and streamlined than before. It eliminates a lot of human error, and our customers are very happy.

How did Solo Media Group perform from a project management standpoint?

Our main contact replied to all our inquiries. There were some bugs and other issues initially, but they communicated well through text, email, or phone. We also uploaded any bugs or fixes to our shared Google Drive. They were always available, which made the process much less stressful.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The fact that they're a smaller company really helps. They're much better than any larger firm I've worked with. They made sure that all the functionality was air-tight.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could have provided more realistic expectations. Some things ran longer than we expected, and some of the features had a few bugs to work out. Knowing that upfront would have been helpful.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure you have a line of communication set up with them and be sure to clarify all the expectations at the beginning.

They were available via phone or messaging and are accommodating to what type of communication we preferred. Half of the team works while we sleep which confirms that the project is being worked on around the clock until completed.

I work for a marketing agency that specializes in inbound campaigns, brand content, design, and development. I'm the project and program manager who's responsible for every project lifecycle.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Solo Media Group ?

We hired Solo Media Group to develop, design, and improve an e-commerce site.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to resolve errors that our previous developer had made on the backend, address design and functionality concerns, and launch an attractive and smooth e-commerce site by the 2018 holidays.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We connected on Upwork for another e-commerce project. I knew from our earlier experience that they would be a great choice for this project. 

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

Solo Media Group entered on the third milestone, when the project was failing. They solved a poorly coded Magento 2 backend; fixed the site's responsiveness, aesthetic appeal, and check-out ability; edited API integrations with Instagram and mapping applications; and revised many more functionalities according to the client's requests.

The team also provided training videos so we could continuously improve and teach the client about administrative responsibilities.

What was the team composition?

The team leader coordinated with his developer, who worked directly with us to improve efficiency and understanding. We also had a designer and project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The team took more time than requested to truly clean up the backend, hold several meetings, and complete additional revisions. This immediately satisfied our concerns about their abilities. They provided so much detail that we could easily explain their progress to the client and give an accurate delivery timeline for each task.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They communicated exactly what happened behind the scenes through video calls, email, Excel spreadsheets, and shared Google documents. The team lead did an amazing job, offering consistent and coherent updates. They budgeted, communicated, and followed up well. 

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed by their responsiveness, honest communication, and great work ethic. They did their best work for us and our client.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

They could communicate directly with the client if that would improve the project.
