Feedback summary: 

The website gathers much praise for its functionality, which will be further added upon with an event calendar and more. StatenWeb excels at keeping everyone involved in the project informed at all times, taking the time to explain things carefully and address any concerns.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the marketing manager for Anevel Arts Center. It’s a new, 200-seat theatre in New Jersey that’s scheduled to open in April 2019.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire StatenWeb?

We needed a highly-functional website for the seven performances a week we are presenting, full with CRM and ticketing integration. The center also has a restaurant attached, which needed to be included on the website as well.

What were your goals for this project?

We aim to have a user- and employee-friendly website for patrons.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found StatenWeb on Google. After having an interview with their team, we found out that we actually knew several of the companies that had worked with them. Their stellar reviews of StatenWeb’s work led our decision in hiring them.

Describe the project in detail.

The first part of the project was to have a landing page built with CRM integration while the center was being constructed. Since I had never been part of a website development project, Mat (Managing Partner, StatenWeb) and Arik (Full Stack Software Engineer, StatenWeb) had weekly Google Hangout sessions with me to walk me through the backend of the website and answer any questions or concerns I had.

By giving them a few references to other performing arts center website layouts and highlighting the things I liked and disliked about them, Mat and Arik were able to focus in on what we wanted for our website.

What was the team composition?

I worked closely with both Mat and Arik.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Our website has been live with the ticketing system up and running for over a week now, and we’ve had so many compliments. Our next phase will be integrating the restaurant's menu and an event calendar.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

StatenWeb used multiple project management tools to make sure we were all on the same page when any questions or new additions were made to the website.

Although they’re only a team of two, Mat and Arik gave me ample attention whenever I needed it. Whether I emailed them, posted in Trello, or messaged them, they would always respond within 24 hours—usually with a solution already available. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to lead me through this project.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Every step of the way, Mat and Arik would always take the time to explain what was happening or what they were doing so I had a full understanding of the website. I asked a lot of questions, but they were always patient with me.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No. I can't say enough good things about StatenWeb. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new website, especially for people who have never developed one before.

Feedback summary: 

StatenWeb succeeded as a partner by contributing to an effective platform that raised a significant sum of money. The client praises the agency for their responsiveness, availability, reliability, and enthusiasm for their work.

BACKGROUND

Please give a brief description of your company.

Our mission is to support the lifesaving efforts of a nonprofit organization. They are the largest independent, nonprofit, fully volunteer emergency medical services organization that provides fast and free emergency medical first response. Their service is available to all people regardless of race, religion, or national origin.

There are more than 2,300 volunteers around the country, available around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. With the help of our unique GPS technology and our ambucycles, medically equipped motorcycles, our average response time is 3 1/2 minutes. 

Our mission is to arrive at the scene of medical emergencies as soon as possible and provide the patient with appropriate medical help until the ambulance arrives.

What is your role at the company?

I am the vice president, overseeing the U.S. office.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was the business challenge that you were trying to address when you approached StatenWeb ?

The challenge was to create a first of its kind platform to leverage an athlete's performance, each game, by getting people to donate to the charity based on a performance goal. Such a platform did not exist from my research.

What were your company’s business goals for the project?

The goal was to design and build a functional platform that could meet the needs of having thousands of people pledging to donate for every point that the athlete scores.

SOLUTION

Can you talk about the scope of the project?

The scope was limited to designing and building the website platform, but doing it in a way that was multi-functional.

What was your process for selecting  StatenWeb with which to work?

I had seen StatenWeb's work before and knew them to mix functionality with design successfully.

Can you give a sense of the size of the project in dollar terms or personnel work hours?

Dollar size was approximately $30,000 to $40,000 and personnel work hours approximately 75 to 100. 

When was the project completed?

The project was completed in late August of 2014.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What were the results of the project, and are there any metrics you can share?

The results have been tremendous. The platform now has more than 500 people signed on, and we have raised more than $100,000 thanks to individuals donating toward the campaign.

How did StatenWeb perform?

StatenWeb has been fantastic, guiding us through multiple iterations of the functionality and being very available for any technical fixes required or functionality enhancements.

When working with them, was there anything unique or special about them compared to other companies with which you may have worked?

More than anything it was the ease of the whole process, StatenWeb was available regularly, very reliable, pleasant to work with, and enthusiastic about the project being a success.

Looking back on the project, is there any area that they could improve or you would do differently?

At this point, I cannot think of anything I would have asked them to improve or do differently.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The developed website was very successful and allowed the business to raise over $100,000 in charity. Over 90% of the individuals contacted via email blast visited the portal and accessed the information within. Furthermore, the team coded the backend so that the content can be easily modified.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization, and your role and responsibilities.

I am a senior associate at a boutique corporate and securities firm headquartered in New Jersey, with an outpost in New York. We do mostly corporate and securities transactions with secured lending as part of our practice.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with StatenWeb?

The website that was created for us was not the website for the law firm. It was the website that we had created specifically for a golf outing event that we had done that the firm commissioned. Now, we sponsor the event.

Our goal was to get people to sign up through the website. It was also a marketing piece because we asked some of our top clients to sponsor the event. In order to do that, we had to promise them some visibility and advertising for other clients and other purposes. Although it was a charity event, it was also a marketing and networking event for some of our clients, especially the ones that donated $10,000 to $20,000.

We created an invitation for everybody to visit the website. We did everything through the website, and if anybody was interested in either becoming a sponsor, a donor, or anything else, they used the contact tab. All user information came directly to me, and I followed up with a phone call. That was the purpose of the website, and it performed beautifully.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

StatenWeb did everything, including Web design and development work. Of course, we spoke to them and told them what we wanted. I provided some of the content in terms of what we were writing in the contest that we were holding, and other aspects of the event.

They did everything from the user interface to the back-end, which was exceptionally helpful. They uploaded all the sponsor information and created everything, from top to bottom, minus the text that I updated. We used a WordPress site.

What was your process for selecting StatenWeb with which to work?

I've known the proprietor for a while through friends. We checked their references and looked at some other sites that they did. We met with StatenWeb several times, and that was all we needed to hire them. We vetted them to make sure they knew what they were doing. We've received some very good reviews from the website.

I was able to help them, because some of our clients asked us who developed the site. We've made some referrals, and I believe they’re working with some of our clients.

When was the work completed?

This site is finished. I don’t have anything for them to work on currently. I will probably go back to them to help me update the existing site, which I kept up and running. Once we approach the 2015 outing, we will use them again to help us update it with some other features that we want on there, considering last year’s success.

Can you provide a ballpark dollar figure for the size of the work that they’ve done for you?

We tweaked the back-end of the site a lot because of the different features that we wanted. We made those updates on a daily basis for about a week to adjust minor features once it was completely done. The project took about two to three weeks for the coding part to conclude, which was my primary concern.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Do you have any statistics or metrics to track improvement from the project?

The event was extraordinarily successful. The site ran perfectly. We have no complaints. It was our first time doing a Web project. We did it for Save the Child charity, and the website helped us raise more than $100,000.

We didn’t use any metrics because we got a great response. We probably sent this out to a couple of hundred people on an email blast. Many of the people visited the site, which we know from feedback from our clients. Many people used the contact tab. We know that they were on the site. I would say that 90 percent of the people that we sent it to were on the site, and then used it to contact us. These were clients and people that we knew, so it wasn’t a cold-calling effort.

We’re very happy with the services that they provided, and I know that we’re going to be using them for the next outing. They got traffic to the site and helped the event be successful.

Is there anything unique about StatenWeb that really makes them stand out, compared to other companies?

I haven’t interacted with too many companies that provide similar services. I know that the other firm we used for the firm’s main website was not very good. That vendor was hired through a friend of a partner’s. They did not build us a content management system that we could edit ourselves, it was very difficult to update text, and they charged us for all of the minor tweaks unlike StatenWeb. That was one of the bigger selling points, StatenWeb didn’t send us an invoice every time we asked them to update something on the website. They worked with us and helped us out so we could get to the point where we were satisfied with the product, and we didn’t get an invoice at the end for all those minor tweaks.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or that you might do differently?

So far, everything has been good. The project wasn’t that complicated, but I don’t know how these projects are completed normally. We were very satisfied. Two of my clients are also using them. The charity used them as well for another event.

Feedback summary: 

The website attracted a large digital publishing platform that bought a portion of the business. This speaks volumes of StatenWeb’s expertise. Additionally, they show consistently high-level project management skills.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the owner of several leading digital publications and resource guides.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire StatenWeb?

I wanted to improve my website’s speed and UI.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

StatenWeb was recommended to me by a digital marketing agency.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

StatenWeb has helped us on several projects. This includes CDN setup with AWS Cloudflare, website migration and WordPress setup, custom PHP development for the website’s US, plugin development for specific features, and more.

What was the team composition?

The project team consists of Mat (Managing Partner, StatenWeb) and one other developer, but I mostly interface with Mat.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

A portion of the business was recently sold to a large digital publishing platform, in part thanks to StatenWeb’s help.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project management is primarily done through Trello boards. Mat is extremely quick to reply, and the system is great for archiving. When more details are needed, we set up phone calls.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

What’s most impressive is Mat's quick response time. If I have a problem, he's usually on it within the hour.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Initially, project management was done via email, but Mat made the switch to Trello, which provides a much better workflow.
