Feedback summary: 

The website met praise from internal and external stakeholders for its ease of use and modern appearance, leading to potentially more work for Sparkle Design. The team offered a high level of expertise to create solutions. Having a single, responsive point of contact streamlined the workflow

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the head of the electronic banking services division for Ukreximbank, the state export-import bank of Ukraine. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Sparkle Design?

Our previous website was launched more than 10 years ago—in 2008—and we had to implement a new solution.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Sparkle Design had to create a new version of our site and integrate it with the enterprise service bus of our bank. They adapted all content to customer expectations and bought pictures from stock photo sites like Shutterstock. We divided the project into six stages and went stage by stage to implement it.

What is the team composition?

I don’t know what the team size was; we interacted with a single person from Sparkle Design. We solved all issues only with Alexander (Founder and Owner, Sparkle Design Studio).

How did you come to work with Sparkle Design?

We’d interacted with Sparkle Design 7–8 years ago. They created some Flash banners for our previous site, and we had a good experience collaborating with the company. 

In 2018, we arranged a transparent process for choosing a provider. We chose 5–6 Ukrainian companies that had experience developing and launching websites for banks. From that process, we decided to start collaborating with Sparkle Design. They had experience developing bank websites, offered a reasonable price for their services, and were the winner in meeting the transparent procedures required of us as a state bank.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $32,000–$33,000 for the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Sparkle Design in August 2018, and we finished the project in September 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The new site is quite different and modern, and it meets all our expectations. We now have a responsive design for mobile devices to accommodate more than 55% of our site visitors who come from mobile. Our colleagues, clients, and peers in the Ukrainian banking sphere all liked the new version of our site.

How did Sparkle Design perform from a project management standpoint?

Alexander was our single point of contact. We used various channels to reach him: a bug tracker, email, and a Telegram group. We could interact around the clock.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Sparkle Design went beyond what we required in our statement of work. We have our own IT teams, but they lacked experience in various web design spheres. Sparkle Design’s team helped us make some adjustments to our IT infrastructure as well as implementing the site.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We completed the project in September, but we had some issues and improvements to make. We have a 12-month warranty period, and we’re considering hiring Sparkle Design as a provider to maintain the website. We’re also considering migrating it to a cloud host, but our bank is rather conservative in this regard, and we don’t have experience with it. I’m sure we can start a collaboration with Sparkle Design to continue all these processes.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

We would recommend them to other companies. Of course, we had some difficulties during the project because we had stakeholders on the bank side involved in the process. Sparkle Design handled all troubles well during the project.
